Everything works fine on mobile safari.
Very strange. And I could swear the issue just popped up last week or so.
I checked the console, and indeed there was an error thrown by a frame that couldn't be loaded from static.quantcast.mgr.consensu.org. I use Ghostery to block trackers, so I disabled that one and suddenly everything works like a charm. The same setup on Chrome and there it works with Ghostery fully enabled. Super odd.
I've whitelisted Brickset in Ghostery on Safari for now.
I had it set to one view of the /sets/* pages per 15 seconds but a lot of people noted they were seeing the error so it's now 1 per 5 seconds. Surely that should be enough for any legitimate user?
I've disabled it now because I found the cause of the server slowdown and timeouts. Requests from Russian IPs were flooding the server with requests for small image files, so I've blocked them and enabled CloudFlare 'challenge' for all users in Russia which should prevent it.
I am Brickset user from Russia. I see the captcha every time I entering Brickset.com over a year, even if my password remembered by browser. But I’m okay if this thing about safety. Today I successfully completed the captcha and saw this:

I can no longer access Brickset from my computer or my phone. So when I can use this wonderful site again?
I will review the situation in a few days.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Edit: Same error when trying to navigate to my collection as well
Set with my test string is 75192 and my query looked like
SELECT * FROM Sets
WHERE (UserNotes = 'blah')
ORDER BY SortKey ASC
Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if there is something broken. Thanks!
@iwybs, you need to use 'contains' rather than 'equals'
This might be related to syncing it with BrickOwl, which doesn't work right now.
