We would like to apologise for the extended site outage.
Although it was known there would be short temporary loss of the forum, I had anticipated somewhere between two to at most ten days. Given the short 'offline' time vs the relatively low traffic volume I elected to not mass mail members (who had chosen to receive site emails) to inform them of this as a message would of been displayed indicating the expected 'return' date.
Unfortunately fate threw a hand or two into it, due to various issues completely outside of my control it extended well beyond that! Although there were other factors at play here, a donation from a member who wishes to remain anonymous greatly expedited the restoration process somewhat too. It is only right to mention this (thank you!)
Once it was realised the delay would be a bit longer than originally planned, a temporary forum was setup while this one was 'on vacation' for members to use if needed but it was not really required it seemed.
We were offline for just over three weeks!
It is possible the DNS may take a little bit of time to propagate fully, so some occasional temporary oddness might be experienced (broken images mainly) however these issues will automatically correct themselves within at most a day or so usually.
As I promised per the 'holding page' no data has been lost, it is all still here.
Welcome back everyone.
