DOS attacks
Due to what appears to be intermittent DOS attacks, this forum will be in Maintenance Mode until we figure out what is being exploited.
We are now on Members Only as we keep an eye on the issue.

We're on 2.7
Just finished upgrading to 2.7
I expect we'll be finding bugs as people check in and do things - especially as this forum is heavily modded. Already found issues with YaBMod and UsersToday.  Sad

Upgrading here to 2.7.00
Depending on how well the various Mods install, and how well the new data converters in the 2x Converter work, I am hoping to have this forum upgraded to 2.7.00 sometime in the next week or so.
