The MySQL crashed for some mysterious reason. The tables are fixed and the forum should be back online.

I was getting worried that this whole community was gone. I started going on an apocalyptic posting spree on other forums.

Hmm, this seems to have become a recurring problem. Hagish is trying to figure out what is going wrong from time to time.

There was something that caused a short regular restart of the nginx reverse proxy in from of the forum. This is fixed now. The db crash is likely related to the regular backups. I temporary disabled the backups and in a few days we will know if it still crashes or not.

DB is back. Got corrupted again. We ordered new hardware and are currently preparing everything. So in the next weeks we will move everything to the new hardware and hopefully this DB issue is gone then.
