    ...because I've been wondering what the hell happened to the universe while I was gone.

    tl;dr Site's been crazy unstable and we lost a week's worth of posts.

    You like to read:
    As of recently, we've had some instabilities with the forums and the server on which it is being hosted on. As our site host Glitch is covering a lot of things on the backend the user end should be stable enough to use again. The last backup of the forums was a week ago, and as such we have lost posts from the last week. We have no way of restoring these and users will need to repost them. We are sorry for the inconvenience that may bring. We expect the website to be stable enough but downtime may happen so take care to double save your posts.

    ---
    For those confused about the poll:
    Xenforo is the current software used for the forums. The alternative that the poll asks for is "Minimaforum", forum code built from the ground up by Glitch.
    In the event that we go with Minimaforum, posts from the current forum may not be restored.

    Whatever makes the site stop crashing [either simply riding this out if it seems to have passed or switching].

    So who wants to explain how and why the site keeps going offline so often?
