You've noticed by now that the forums have been down for about 2 weeks. What led to this was a cascading hardware failure, which corrupted a lot of data, with forums being the most impacted. I restored a backup from 2 weeks prior to the failure, resulting in only 2 weeks of damaged data. I spent another 2 weeks or so attempting to recover that lost data. The end result was partial recovery of a lot of data. There was loss, permanent, and for that, I apologize. Some torrents were damaged as well. Just like when we encountered issues in the past, we used this as a learning experience, to avoid the same problem in the future. Technical details of the problem and future mitigation will be supplied in the discussion thread, if you are interested.
