What EJ originally said,
"As you know the forum's threads and avatars have been erased.
You know, this is the time where I have some long ass shit to say to everyone, but the thing is I don't really have anything prepared to say.
The thing is the database of the forum filled up to the brim and it exceeded the data limit, so threads and avatars had to be deleted (along with some other small things). Everyone still has their postcount though, as you can see.
I apologize deeply to everyone though for the loss of your thread content, there isn't any way to recover them and will have to be rewritten over time. I hope everyone can understand it was either a choice between refreshing the forum or having it dead forever.
I don't know what else to say at the moment."
In short, the forum's database filled up completely, and EJ had to delete all threads, avatars, etc, so that there would be room for more. Let's just call this a "renovation". I'm sure everything will be set up soon, good as new.
