Hi I'm Iruka! You may recognize me as your friendly Artist Corner mod! If you don't, maybe pop into the AC sometime!
Well, I also happen to work over at Vanilla in support! I can't undo the current customization that triggered you all to be locked out of the holiday forum, but any momentary weirdness you saw was because I was tinkering around. I was trying to provide a temporary forum for tonight's holiday cheer, but because of Robot Santa's inner, inherent rage, you're all completely banned from everything.
For now, just hang tight and we'll get this cleaned up in the morning. You can continue to chat in that other thread, but don't explode the bugs forum with dumb things because obviously Icy will murder you!
You maybe thinking "Oh haha, I'll @Iruka
every time I see a problem in vanilla now, that'll be fun!"
