Wetpixel forums are back
I am pleased to report that the Wetpixel forums are back up and running. There are still some bugs that need working out, and we do need the community to go and have a look at the forums to see if there is anything that we have missed! There is a thread where folks are reporting any issues they have or notice so that our amazing developer Tom St. George can investigate and solve them. So far so good!

We are changing our servers and updating the site in order to provide some exciting new features and functionality over the next few months. Many apologies for the inconvenience, but this means that we will need to take the forums offline for around 24 hours. We plan to do so from 1500 GMT (1100 ET/0800 PT) today, Wednesday 24 July and hope to have everything back up and running by the same time on Thursday 25 July.
