Server maintenance

The site may be down for up to an hour tonight as a software upgrade is performed. I will send out an e-mail or post an update via social media just before the work starts.

The main maintenance is complete, although we still have to tweak a new things. You should notice a slight improvement in overall site speed (20-100ms per pageload).

I cannot access my user profile page, as it is stating that my username does not exist.

All dead links should be fixed now; however, note that the URL format for member profiles, albums, and groups have changed, so you may have to update your bookmarks.
