Topic: We are back!
we are back (mostly, registration doesn't work, but it's just a matter of days *ahem*)
The reasons we were down for a such long time was that the server on which this forum is running was the target of an hacking attack.
The forum wasn't even the target, but it shares it's resources with another page. It's demise took us down, too.
Anyway, i used the downtime to add HTTPS, a new captcha version and other minor tweaks and updates. I also upgraded the servers operating system. I didn't make the big update of the forum-software, which i planned for over a year, though. It's still on my TODO-list, but real-life issues preventing any real progress. Btw, i could use help from a PHP-developer for that (please pm me).
Anyway, have fun with the forum! There still might be some minor issues, because of the software-update.
