Real talk, the guy that has been paying for forum hosting for the last 4 years (GlyphGryph) wants out. He notified us this was happening and I dropped the ball transitioning the forums to new hosting. He bailed us out by reactivation his hosting so we're back up for now, but now it's temporary.
I contacted Discourse
about their open source plan and will consider transitioning there if they accept our application. If that falls through we have someone else that has offered to host (probably on smf still) that can do it, and if THAT falls through I'll handle hosting myself.
Side issue, we're transitioning the website to GitHub site hosting, the first draft is here
