Hi all. You have probably noticed the downtime for the forum over the last day or two. We have been getting so much porn spam that we needed to do something about it.
I upgraded to phpbb3 yesterday, and converted the template, at least partially - the template system changed pretty significantly, and I didn't feel like re-doing all of it. If I missed something critical, let me know.
Today, in the process of removing the old forum, I accidentally erased the current database instead... ugh. I hadn't yet made a backup of the new database, and so I lost a couple posts, and at least one new user registration. Sorry about that.
Hopefully, the new forum will be better about spam and moderation control, we'll see how it goes.
The search engine is currently reindexing itself, so searches probably won't work right for another hour or two.
