Hi everyone,

So sorry about the recent crash and downtime on the forum. The forum wasn't hacked or compromised or anything like that. It was a hosting issue which is now all sorted. My apologise for the downtime and for taking so long to get to this.

Big thank you to the mods for chasing me down and letting me know ;)

I took the opportunity while down to update the forum to the latest software. This includes some back-end changes for managing the forum but also some performance enhancements and a few visual/quality of life additions to the forum:

- Avatars are now round, they are a bit more aesthetically pleasing
- Last poster avatar now displays on the forum list
- BB code and rich text editing for profile posts and comments
- Better support for iPhone X/Xr/Xs displays
- Show password field added when logging in if you want to check you entered your password correctly
- Visual password strength indicator added during signup, powered by zxcvbn

Thanks again and sorry for the inconvenience all!

Cheers, Blake. Thanks for looking after the site!
I tried emailing via the Contact page to let you and the mods know, but that wasn't working either. :eek:

Even now, the site seems faster!
