As you will have noticed, the forums are currently completely knackered when trying to access them from the standard URL. The problem has been caused by our hosting company/ISP - they moved our site to a new server at the weekend and seem to have broken something in the database as a result, although I am not at all clear exactly what it is they've broken. I am currently in contact with their technical support and hope to have things sorted out soon.

Please bear with me on this :(

Ok, I think I've fixed the problem. It looks like it might be a bug in the version of MySQL that's running on the new server. I've manually made some tweaks to the SQL which shouldn't make any difference, but which appear to work.

You have my thanks too, I wonder how fast this forum would go down without you here, thanks.

EDIT:
Sorry, I'm a real idiot, I just had a look at the dates. :lol:
