The website is very close to being finalized. We have our fingers crossed that the new verion and the new forums will be live in the next few days. We are waiting on the development contractors to work out some final kinks and then perform the final migration.
We apologize that the forums have been down for the extended period, and we hope the wait for the new forums will be worthwhile for active and new users alike.

The deadline is December 31st.
