OK so the forum is back up.
I swear I backed up the database on March 10th but everything seems to be pushed back to March 5th. So unfortunately we have lost some posts (ie the Challenge thread) and some users So I asked the hosting support if they had a copy of the old database. They did, and they copied it over but it still seems to be 5 days old. Now, they also said that they may have a copy before then, which may be more recent than May 5th. I will ask them to copy that over but it may take a few days. If they do, then anything posted after today will be lost. So DO NOT POST. I've enabled the forum so that you can read this message but do not reply to it or to any other threads.

Sorry guys
The good news is that they finally moved the server so there shouldn't be any big down time again.
The Wiki is still not working because it is the version for PHP4. Once I upgrade the Wiki software it should work

OK bad news again. They don't have one between March 5th and March 10th. I'm not sure why the backup I made on the 10th isn't up to date. Anyways you guys can post now, and apologies to those who will have to re-register and those who lost posts

I don't use IRC or any instant messengers much. I'll get on every once in a while though

8 days of posts pales in comparison to the years of posts we lost on the other forums. Still sucks ass though.

So is our "post forgetting threat level" effectively meringue at this point? Because that threat level would be delicious.
