    First of all, thank you for your patience during the problems we had over the past day. It turns out that some of the memory in the server we run went bad, and when it did, it caused severe database corruption on the server. Initially, diagnosing that it was a memory error took quite a bit of time, and following that diagnosis, major attempts were made to correct errors with the database.

    In the end, we were forced to restore a backup which is why you will see that posts made over the last day or so may have been lost. I believe everything is back on track and the memory in question has been replaced.

    Thanks again for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience.

    -Chase
