Just a quick note that the website was degraded for approximately the past 24 hours where users were not able to log in to the main site or view content beyond the front page of the main site. The issue has been resolved.

It did not affect the forums so long as you were already logged in to the forums.

What exactly does degraded mean? Were passwords stolen, or was the system used to authenticate just down? I tried to log in at one point and I got a lot of pink on my screen. Just wondering if we should all change our passwords. Thanks!

Nothing was stolen, no. The database that held the user information needed repair from a backup.

Thanks for that information. Glad nothing was stolen, or hacked into.
