During the past few weeks, I have been working on making the site forums more tuned to user needs. To do so, some support was needed from the team responsible for the forum's creation. I had a very poor experience when asking how to solve an issue with the forums and as a result, decided to switch to a more robust forums plugin. Unfortunately, before I could do so, the old forums had a fatal problem that removed their linkage from the website.
As a result, the old forum topics have been lost. It is entirely possible, that I may be able to recover some data later by digging through the databases, but there is no way to re-post the topics in our new system. I am truly sorry it had to come to this, but our new forum is much more stable, and should be even easier to customize. No user data was affected by this change. Your forum accounts are still active if you have a website account.
If you had a forum post that was lost, please feel free to re-post it. Just make sure you adhere to the rules regarding forum posts, and attempt to place it in the best fitting category. Please note that some features are still being updated. If you wish to suggest additional forum features, please, let me know.
Additionally, some updates were performed to the downloads and shoutbox. Notably, you can now press enter to send a shoutbox message as intended. Please let me know if you notice any issues or have any suggestions for these, or any other website plugins or content.
I managed to recover the old forums. I will be migrating my posts out, then making an archive of the topics later. You can temporarily read the old forums by visiting the Forum and selecting the Archive tab.
All old patch note posts have been transferred.
