An update on the caching problems with the site: I'm afraid we're not quite there with a full fix on this yet. The tech team needs to tinker a bit further before we're properly up and running again. Apologies - I was hopeful we'd have a full fix by the end of today.
I'll be given an update late morning (Friday 27th), so I'll pass on any information as I have it.
In the meantime, annoying though it is, please refresh your browser, by simultaneously clicking Ctrl and F5 on a PC, or Shift, Cmd and R on mac to update the forum lists and your private message list. Alternatively, on an iPad, do this via Settings Safari. (Unfortunately, if a full refresh isn't working for anyone, there's nothing more we can do until the tech team fix.)
If you need any further help, it's best to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org rather than private messaging, as some of you are having trouble picking up responses. We'll pick up emails in the morning and get back to you.
Fingers crossed for better news tomorrow.
