Maybe Patreon is a simple and easy way for people to help out? I have never setup a project there, but it seems like it's a matter of minutes.

I think the number of beers deserved for this is well above a safe and healthy limit. We'll have to expand to steak dinners and baked goods.

Thank you guys so much for all your hard work. This forum means a ton to me and I know both your daily work and this latest fix are no small effort.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I got the emergency call at 2 in the morning often enough myself. I don't know if this call came at 2AM, but whenever it came, you all came through like champs with the fixes. Thanks.

We have no idea how many times our passwords were compromised on the old forum... and we couldn't even change them under "normal" conditions :o

During the downtime you can check wikia and fb.... and the old forum :lol:

@rdearman: This may be a stupid question: I also tried to connect via https://forum.language-learners.org/, but didn't get a connection.
Am I right in assuming that the forum software doesn't support TLS/SSL?

No, we do not (and never have, as far as I know). It's on the TODO list, but we have a lot of other stuff to tackle first, like the Super Challenge bot.

Hello, this might be a stupid question, but I don't believe my password was ever changed. I'm still logged in. If I log out, will my password be reset? I just want to be sure that my account is safe too. Thankfully, my password on this account is unique to all of my other passwords, but I still wonder why I am still logged in and able to use the forum, haha.

Yes, you guys did a great job of figuring out what happened, telling us what happened, and then bringing us all up on a new server.

You rule!
