Thanks for your patience ladies and gentlemen. We upgraded the forum software which should hopefully help solve some back end issues, as well as provide you with more bells and whistles. The upgrade isn't complete, but it's complete enough that we can turn the forum back on.
New to this upgrade is the ability to customize your profile page, as well as create your own social groups. There's also an album feature, but for the time being, it's best just to use our photo gallery. There are also some other new features that you'll likely come across.
This was a pretty big upgrade, so there are going to be some bugs to iron out. Feel free to post them here, or send me a PM.
