Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Seems to be isolated to IE8. But the forum login dialog box that normally appears when you press sign in is hidden by the main view of the forum. I was able to log in by finding the box for my username by moving my mouse over it. When I did that it changed its cursor indicating that there was a text box there. I tested this on two different installations of Internet Explorer on two different computers and had the same issue on both. I can provide screenshots later if you need more details.
The problem cropped up soon after your maint. period was done.
