A problem has developed this afternoon with the main server which is going to require a full reinstallation of the operating system, what this means is that we're going to be seeing a substantial amount of disruptions over the next few days including the site being inaccessable for some people and certain forum features not working.

I'd like to apologise for any disruptions this problem may cause, i'll keep this thread up to date once I know more.

The following site services will be unavailable at times during the next few days:

- Both the main and forum galleries
- The blogs
- The chat room
- Forum attachments

We're also likely to see a few other minor bugs and glitches on the site and forums, its going to be a bit touch and go for a while.

That's really bad, the Widgets had some problem, but now I think they have been restored, while the Chatroom is running perfectly fine as of Now, but thanks for the alert message

Thanks

Update

Picture and attachment uploads have now been disabled, the reason for this is that any new uploads made while this issue is being resolved will be lost again once its complete. A large number of existing profile photographs and attachments will be missing at this time - these should reappear again once the issue has been resolved.

Update

The blog and forum gallery are working again ( recent image additions aside )

IE6 users may be experiencing some disruptions with the gallery layout however.

Update

Ok so at this point a lot of the main disruptions should have passed with the exception of:

- The forum search system is down ( use the search on the main site for now )
- A lot of attachments, uploaded profile pics etc. on the forum are missing
- The chat room is down
- The forum gallery doesnt work on IE6 ( is anyone even still using this ? )

Also a few other smaller bugs such as the login bar on the main site.

Most of these issues will be resolved over the next few days.
