Ok, here’s the skinny on what happened to the site.
The server on which this forum resides was changed out. The site was moved to a new server and in the process some of the files and the database was corrupted. This is why some sections, links, features aren’t working right. Tonight I will be upgrading the site and trying to repair the database. So we will be down while I’m working on it. We may need to restore the database to the last known working archive, but that back-up is 8 months old… that’s right boys and girls, we may lose the last 8 months of posts, PM’s, new members, our lives… That’s the worst case though… I will try everything I can to save what we have.
So take a few moments and say good-bye to your friends… we will be down for a few hours.
BTW, the look of the site might not jive with the new update. So we may have a new and improved look when we are up and running again.
