At this stage the site should be back up and running again.

 :thankyou: for your patience

In order to log in you will need to reset your password. You can do that HERE
In future you will log in and out on the home page and not on the forum anymore

The forum should be basically the same, but the entire front end has been redesigned from the ground up.
You will also notice that the site now runs through a secure server :police:

As the site was redesigned from the ground up, there are bound to be little issues or things that I have missed, so if you encounter a problem please let me know so that I can get onto it asap.
Please go through your classes to ensure they are all there. They should be, but let's rather be safe than sorry. If you find any that are missing, just PM me the list and I will look into it for you.

PS - the credit system is not yet installed - I will do that in the next day or so.

Please let me know what you think of the new design and what I can do to improve it for you O0

 :thankyou: for your patience. The site has now been moved to a new hosting company.
The site is already running a lot faster so that is good.
Let me know if you encounter any problems or have any suggestions

Luckily it wasn't too stressful. It was more frustrating to have these hassles after working almost a year to redesign the site and prepare for as smooth a launch as possible. It just shows that even the best laid plans can be derailed by unexpected influences.

Having said that. The website is now much better off as a result because we have a better platform to run the site off than before, so as usual - everything happens for a reason :) O0 :yippee:

Nice to have the site again with new functions, Nolan! Thanks for the enormous work involved.
Will give a feedback after using it for sometime. I almost all the time use it with my mobile.
Cheers, Gita

Some of us had the same question about LOG OUT.

Musika posted the process and Nolan confirmed it.

Go to <Site Home> at the bottom of a page (It takes a few seconds). Hover your mouse cursor on <My> in the menu across the top of the page - one of the options is <Log out>
