Today, the forums were down for several hours whilst I moved the forum database to a new server. I also rebuilt and optimized all the tables so it may feel a little different for awhile. It should ultimately be faster and more reliable. We'll see. Because I rebuilt tables, the "red" numbers next to the topic and post numbers may be different than they were prior to the rebuild. That is normal. We just go from here.
Thanks for your patience, if indeed you have such and exercised such. In any case, sorry for the inconvenience and frustration !!
