For those of you who frequent our IRC channels and use the XChat-WDK (not sure if regular XChat or other variants are affected) or Pidgin client, the IRC network we're using was recently hit by individuals who have found a way to crash your clients. If you find that your client keeps crashing when starting up or connecting to our channels, update your client to the latest version.
If updating XChat-WDK doesn't work, try the following:
Delete %APPDATA%\X-Chat 2\scrollback
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.
As we do a lot to prepare for an update, if any of our tests fail, we will not go through with the update until we sort out the issue and it may result in us delaying the update until we can be sure that we won't have any problems.
Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.
