Hey ya'll!

Sorry for the downtime yesterday; as a part of our upgrade process something went awfully wrong, and almost our entire members database was deleted, sending me and SConrad (let's be honest, mostly SConrad) into a frenzy of fixing.

He has managed to restore most things to what they were before the deletion, but you will notice some oddities. Post-counts may be slightly different, last-posted-by in various forums may be wrong, any PMs from the last week have been deleted, and most unfortunately, almost any avatar and personal photo added or changed within the last two years is permanently gone.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. SC has done an amazing job to get us back on track, so big props to him! :cheers:

Thanks everyone.

P.S. Hopefully any remaining problems will be ironed out when we do our forum upgrade/overhaul sometime next week. :)

Sorry there was so much trouble--and thanks to all for getting the forums back up so quickly.

I'm just sorry to all the members who have to re-upload their avatars and photos! :(

Not to mention the members who aren't posting here anymore... they're going to remain without avatars, creating a somewhat bland look on the forums for a while.
