It’s as simple as what the title says, the forums have returned.
There was a database error preventing anyone, even the admins, from viewing topics. After a month of puzzling over the problem, Melchizedek donated 25$ to renew our tech support of the IPB forums software package. After a day of conversing back and forth with the tech support, the issue has been resolved. So, a big thanks goes out to Melchizedek and naturally as always, thanks to everyone for supporting ZI. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
