The site should be back up and running normally now. We decided to carry out the work at this time of day, as it ensured that all staff who may or may not be needed would be available. In general the work has gone well, except for one oversight being the board posting. This should now be resolved.

I will be posting a technical update blog later explaining what we've been doing. My apologies for all the inconvenience over the last few weeks. I hope that you will all now see a significant improvement.

Hi RR,

Any new threads that were created while we had the thread posting problem have not had the body of the original text saved to the database. Unfortunately we cannot recover this so threads like those will remain missing. For those threads that have not been replied to, I am deleting, and sending a PM to the author to report.

Is there anything else that doesn't appear to be working right? We don't believe there is anything else wrong.
