Cloudflare wouldn't help us with speed. We've tried them before, and they only caused headaches. Every ime we made a change to a css file for example, cloudflare would show the 'site offline' page for a good 5-10 minutes, amongst other issues. From what I can tell, the issue isn't slow database queries either. If you hit post and then half a second later, open the thread again in another tab, you'll see your post there, whilst the initial tab is still loading. Obviously IPB does a lot of additional processing after the post is submitted, and I have no idea what this processing entails, but it's clearly that which is causing the slow processing problem, and when we get time, we will look into that thoroughly.
