Regarding the unexpected downtime.

Had to pull the site down temporarily due to the fact that the database reached its maximum storage capacity, and thus refused any updates to it (posts, logins, etc.). I’ve since cleared out older files but it takes the server a bit to refresh and realize the changes were made. As to why and how this happened is still unclear but it appears to have been a spike in data used by the search function as far I can tell. I’m still investigating the issue and have taken measures to clear out additional data (like I’ve wiled out edit logs for example) in order to provide us with a bit of cushioning and either prevent or delay this from happening again for a good long while.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

One who calls upon the ocean never expects the tsunami.
For beckoning the rains, also tempts the hurricane.
When simple kindling begs the wildfire,
A furious inferno to devour the lands.
And to say a prayer is to provoke the wrath of God.
Know ye not your foolishness?
