We are going to move to a different host, which should keep the database errors from occuring. Due to this move, the forums will need to remain locked until the transfer is complete. This move, if all goes well, will happen this Sunday and should be finished within a few hours, though the domain name update may take longer depending on your ISP.
The forums have been occasionally giving errors due to problems with the database. In the beginning it was a lot worse until I blocked search engines from accessing most of the pages that they didn't need to going through, but they still pop up rather regularly. I'm going to be looking into moving the site to a better host, but this won't be resolved for a while. I'm just letting everyone know that if you ever get database errors on the forums, we're getting updated about them. Additionally, please don't refresh the page right away if you get a database error, please give it a minute to recover. Thank you, all.
