There was some unexpected downtime a few minutes ago, which was caused by a broken SMF modification package that did not uninstall itself properly. When installing SMF mods they are stacked on top of each others, meaning that to uninstall certain mods you sometimes have to uninstall the rest, and some mod packages are not made properly, which makes things worse.

As a result, we had to attempt reinstalling SMF from scratch then re-install the mods one by one, which failed, so we instead had to restore the site files from a backup. There might be some things that are broken in your profile and our admin panel, but otherwise should function 100%. Hopefully they can be fixed soon by either @Juju or @Streetwalrus.

Sorry for the inconveniences this might have caused.

UPDATE: Profile, online list and admin panel fixed. Stupid package manager added code after the PHP closing tag.
