[IMPORTANT!] Sheduled Downtime
« on: December 11, 2009, 09:40:28 pm »
The forum will go offline for urgent maintenance and backing up at 11 O'clock tonight (Friday 11th December). 

I don't know how long this will take, but it should all be back to normal again by tomorrow (Saturday 12th December).

Check up on status updates on our Emergency Blog (and bookmark it if you haven't already!): http://votesaxonblog.blogspot.com/

Administrators, please note: Please, do NOT attempt to access the forum during the maintenance period.  There is a significant risk that the backup may be corrupted and data lost if you do.

The maintenance has been completed.  Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

We should now have no problems with the Joomla site either (I've streamlined the Home Page a bit so it's easier to access the forum).

UPDATE:

The forum is now finally completely independent from the Joomla system! This should provide faster load times as well as a simpler, more efficient service (and less of a headache for the admins).  Users will register directly through the forum, and all user management will be done through the forum Admin system.

Another update:

The shoutbox has been fixed so that it displays when browsing topic lists, threads and writing posts.
