The forums were down for several hours today. The server they run on hung up for an as yet undetermined reason. The forced reboot corrupted the mysql tables for user management (mysql users, not forum users). The tables have been recreated and the forum data restored to a state from around 4:30pm EST today. There should be little to no lost content on the forums themselves. Sorry for the long outtage window, real life cut in about midway through my trouble shooting.
