Cloudflare isn't causing any downtimes. Rather it's what saves us from worse downtimes during extremely busy times by serving up a cached copy of the page as needed. Of course this doesn't manage to save much bandwidth, but it does save some, as static elements such as images hosted on PC don't often change. Additionally the block on guests usually only kicks in during times of extremely high guest traffic when an extraordinary number of guests are browsing. If you don't see the page, it's because the server has a logged in session for you, even if you can't get it.

I presume each usergroup has a "Priority" in the server anyways, with staff requests getting the most attention during times of load and moving down as you go down the chain.
