What's going on with RSS feeds on Otland? I was subscribed to https://otland.net/forums/server-gala.43/index.rss but after a while it started responding to my feed reader with 503. So I used Google's Feedburner as a kind of proxy and it was working again for some time but now it seems that even Feedburner is getting 503 from Otland (can be checked with feed validator - as @Alpha noticed, that website is just broken). Can it be that the Otland's server is misconfigured and it's blocking IPs of RSS readers that are subscribed to the feeds?

Your feed validator link gives a 404
True, seems like that validation website is no longer working, I used that link because that's what Feedburner suggested as a tool to verify feeds. Didn't even notice that it's a different domain than feedburners. I'll delete that part from my post then.

Still, when trying to add the feed to feedburner I'm getting the error I attached in first post, that's saying it's receiving 503 when fetching (and that wasn't happening when I first added the feed).

Here's a screenshot of full FeedBurner's page (the "Confirm its validity now" link was pointing to that tool that as you noticed is no longer working).

However, as I said at the beginning, before using Feedburner I was subscribed to the feed directly and the same thing happend (after few days of everything working fine I started getting 503 responses), so I don't believe it's an issue with Feedburner or any other feed reader.


@EDIT:

Used different RSS reader and got more specific error when fetching the feed:

So I guess Cloudflare is the the culprit. I don't think RSS feeds should be protected by Cloudflare that way @Don Daniello .
