If you use our forums, you may have noticed problems lately. Something is apparently consuming our quota of server processor power, and when that happens people lose access to the forums. We're trying to figure out what's causing it, because the number of actual users we have just shouldn't be consuming that much of the resources. I have a suspicion that the growing problems over recent months may be related to the number of spammers that are constantly trying to flood the forums.
In any case...we're aware of the problem, and trying to resolve it, but we have a lot else on our "to do" lists that, honestly, must take priority. (Shipping the new Ars Magica book this week, for example! And getting a new Gloom expansion together for release this fall...) Thanks for your patience.
