I'm still working on getting things up so I don't have much time for a detailed explanation for what happened, but suffice to say that we are working to get the LBPC style back up and the remaining images, along with the plugins we had before the crash. The good news out of all of this is, we didn't lose any posts. We almost reverted to a backup made Saturday night, but we found a way to avoid that. Please bear with us as we get the site back up to speed.

Same, I had just finished an extra-long post (D:<) when this happened. I hope we didn't lose our lovely layout! :(
It is good we didn't lose posts, though. That'd be.. Chaos.

I was really confused... I thought I was banned or something so I got one of my friends to check if it wasn't just me. *few*

Any ideas what caused it?

Same here. I couldn't post or message at all yesterday. Thought it was my account or PC. Then when the site wasn't working at all today I was happy it wasn't just me but on the other hand disappointed the site was broken yet again. This vbulletin thing has been nothing but trouble. The site was much better before once the chat thing was removed.

BTW I think you meant *phew* lol.

I've always said *few*, in ALL the years I've been spelling I've always said *few*and have never been corrected. So I thank you.

Being a spelling nazi it helps if you know how to spell

So that explains what happened. I was trying to get on late last night and the home page was all scrambled and when I clicked forums I would be taken to a Google page saying link appears broken.

At least it's running again.

Poor CC, probably under a lot of stress.

That's because with the new update to Vbulletin 4.0.3, it only counts members who activated their accounts (When you first make your account you have to activate it with the link in the email you were sent). So we didn't lose any members, all those 1000+ members never bothered to activate their accounts...

Oh well, at least it means we can celebrate 10000 members for a second time. :p

I wish you luck getting it back to 100%, CC. This site is super awesome.. Heck, come to think of it, couldn't you update the look to be more LBP2-ish? :p

On the contrary, it's the brand new Do It Yourself 2.0 update :p You gotta customise it with stickers, just like in LBP :idea:
