Am I the only one who got the message that the forum was unavailable over the weekend?
Any clues as to why?
Any explanations need to worded so a 2 year old can understand

I tried it several times over the weekend too. It wasn't an error message as such. It actually said the forum was offline. As if there was an off switch. Presumably there was some maintenance going on. I wouldn't be surprised if this is when we find that whole threads have disappeared.

Same thing here. Apparently, according to the phpBB website this "unavailable" happens if servers are changed or other upgrades don't go quite right, etc. Could be the forum was being hacked into. I missed everyone. Just glad it's back!
