Unfortunately I'm a bad admin, and the under the hood stuff hadn't been updated for almost 4 years. This wasn't really a problem until the last couple of days, when the captcha we were using was cracked and we were inundated with russian porn spam. I decided it was time to update to a newer version of phpBB, and new spam-blocking/admin tools. Unfortunately this means that we lost our custom theme, and a few legitimate users may have been accidentally pruned in the process. The good news is that we are now attached to a much stronger anti-spam database than we were before, and mass removal of spammers is now easier for me. The bad news is that some database stuff may have broken in the update, and the old theme is not compatible with the new forum software. I will be trying to get things back to normal in the coming days. Please be patient, and if your account was deleted in error please feel free to signup again. Thanks.
