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.

Happy New Year everyone! We wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2012 for what will, without a doubt, be an amazing year filled with lots of potential and enormous possibilities!
We hope you all had a fantastic New Years Eve and New Years, if you can even remember what you did. As we move into the new year, our beloved project turns one year old and it's a bit surreal for us that so much time has passed by already. It honestly feels like we were beginning the project just yesterday. But here we are, at our first anniversary - an important milestone on what we hope will be a long and fulfilling journey to bring the Minecraft community what it wants.
As we move into the new year, I'd just like to cover a few important changes you should be aware of, if you aren't already:
New Recommended Build with better support for Minecraft 1.0.1
