Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it a problem with the servers or something?

Constantly down... maybe problems with the server...

Yeah.... hopefully the admins notice and do something about it :)

The outage page never lists any, and the status page always says that everything's OK. What good are they if they're never updated?

I'm also experiencing this. Hopefully it improves since I hope to use this site a lot (I'm a linux noob right now).

In my opinion the platform seems to have a general performance issue.
And yes, you're definitely right ... in the last days it became even worse.

It starts with signing in to AskFedora with my Fedora account.
Feels like it's taking ages to login - but much more important :

When you write something, submit the post and switch to another question too fast, everything is lost.
Or when you cast a vote, it seems like nothing happens, so users click again, which reverts the votes.

This is not meant to be some kind of rant, but rather a hint for the maintainers of the site to improve it.
Compared to StackExchange for instance (where I also contribute to some communities), it's a "pain".

Yeah, totally agree.
