Forum Downtime

Apologies for the forums going offline during the maintenance work.
SMF (the forum software) has some code built in to  delete various bits of data from it's sessions DB which decided to run this morning. As this is a large database table, it caused various other queries to lock when trying to access it (as it's used regularly) which caused a backlog of connections to the database server.
This has now been solved thanks to our DBA team, and the offending table dealt with. We're also looking at other ways of improving this process.
Thanks,
Colin
