There have been a lot of technical issues lately with the forum. I have installed a completely new version of the forum software which should take care of most of the problems. All the old data should be here, with the exception of some avatars which did not work for some reason.
The forum will look a bit different for the time being. I'll get that updated soon so it looks more familiar.
If anyone runs into any issues, please post them here and I'll get them taken care of asap.
