As many of you may already be aware, the forum suffered a technical problem yesterday afternoon. Without going into the complicated details, it was essentially a database problem that was triggered by a fault in the forum software. We received fantastic help from a veteran admin member of FPN who helps us from time to time, which got us back up and running.
Unfortunately, there are still a few aspects of the website which are not functioning properly. Most notably the Private Conversations, Profile Views, and Search Function are causing a "permissions" error to result. We expect these parts of the forum to be operational soon. Your messages are still there, so please do not panic.
Of course, without being able to send private messages, this creates a challenge to the marketplace. Please use e-mail communication for your activities there until FPN functionality is 100% restored.
We thank you for your patience through this difficult stage. The FPN database system has become quite large and we will be putting practices in place to help ensure much greater reliability.
The FPN Admin Team
