For some reason our forum defaulted to the old style. We are looking into this matter why this happened. That's why we had to disable it for a while. We will continue to monitor activities of the forum and take heed of any suspicious behaviour. Meanwhile, we will look into other options in terms of forum software. phpbb has crossed us for the last time.

Hooray! Will you be taking suggestions (not that I have any to offer)? :)

You could direct those to Craptain, as he's the one that is examining options to handle a migration.

MyBB doesn't seem good from a security perspective, there have been tons of security vulnerabilities found in it and even recently.

Ugh I don't like to hear that, but thanks for the heads up. What's worse: the templating system is database only so I can't use an IDE to speed up development. Why do people insist on putting static content in the database?

MyBB and phpBB are Web 1.0 software.

Check out Vanilla instead.
