As mentioned in our previous announcement we had planned to take the forums down for an update to the XenForo forum software. We have now completed this update and are back in operation.
We've attempted to make this as smooth a transition as possible by removing any issues caused by the update, however if you do notice anything wrong with the site please submit a ticket for it on our bug tracker.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding.
We're preparing to update XenForo this weekend to better serve the community (as well as address the issues that users using Firefox 9.0 have been facing). This update will bring new features, better performance, stability and many bug fixes.

Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.
