Forums turned offline for now [Update: We're back]

Right now we have had to disable the forums because.. well see for yourself:

One post created twenty plus entries in the Back Page news forum, which will be deleted when the forum can be switched back online.

At the moment we're on an old version of IPB (3.2) so a database conversion is required in order to be able to perform the upgrade, which if all goes well, should be within a few days.

The forums won't be offline for all of all that time, but for now it's necessary.

Check back later to see if we're back online, and thanks for your patience while we perform the work for this much needed upgrade.

In the meantime, why not check out @NeowinFeed and Neowin on Facebook, for both news and these type of alerts? 

Update: And we're back.. stay tuned for an announcement for the 3.4.5 upgrade.
