Currently under a spambot attack, give 24-48hr to resolve the spam if they request it.

I don't know what this is or means. But if I can have what it means explained to me, perhaps we can fix it :). Also, whatever it is, very sorry.

That I can help with; your forums were reported and confirmed as currently being spammed massively by bots; if memory serves they were posting quite a bit of porn.

It's not permanent though, but to prevent damage (and since porn's against the TOS anyways) we had to suspend it temporarily; I can run the unsuspension from here to let you jump in and get the spam cleaned out though, but I would highly recommend looking into some form of spambot protection for the forums :)

YES INDEED. I had no idea, I better get rid of the forums until I actually start developing again. Thanks. If I could have this unsuspended, I would be very greatful.

Running unsuspension now, it should have it unlocked in 10 seconds to a few minutes depending how slow the system's running :)
