As you can tell, we had a window of time where the forums were completely inaccessible due to a technical difficulty with the other forum provider I was using. I was able to work around it by switching providers this week, but unfortunately that also meant I lost everything I had on the old forum system.... >.<
Luckily there wasn't much on the old forums yet, except for a couple of members and a few old topics. If this was after Ballzerk was released, or if the website really took off, then it would've been a major issue. I did manage to find another provider that actually gives way better flexibility than the last one at no charge-- meaning I don't need to pay monthly fees for certain features anymore!
For everyone that had an account here before, you unfortunately have to re-register, there's no way around it I'm afraid. Hopefully this is the last time I'll have to worry about this though.
Sorry for the inconveniences that happened with the forums. Hopefully you enjoy the new ones, and they should last us a good long time. ;D
