If this is about the ability to add new topics....I cant on my site:

When I click the "Add Topic" it just returns me to the front page of the site.

Struggling with the same thing at

any word on the cause, or is this something that has to be pushed out to sites?

Add new topic seems to have just stopped working on my site also ( Also, my banner logo has decided it doesn't like being centred and refuses to disengage itself from the left side of the screen, whatever I tell it!

No alternate text supplied.

I have submitted a support request (more than once since their form submission does not return any sort of success message so I retried a couple times)

I know why the link is not working and here is what I sent to them.

--- Begin Ticket Message ---
Clicking on the "Add Topic" link from any of our forums takes the user back to the root of our site.

The problem seems to be due to the fact that the "Add Topic" link is improperly HTML escaping the ampersands in the query string.  For instance, to submit a new topic in the forum I linked above, the link provided through "Add Topic" is as follows:

It is possible that what I pasted will be interpolated by your ticket system so allow me to be clear.  The ampersands in the query string actually consist of an ampersand followed by the string literal "amp;" which would display an ampersand in an HTML page.

If I replace the escaped characters with literal ampersands I am able to add a topic.

I have submitted this more than once because I am not getting any positive response from the ticket submission.
--- End Ticket Message ---

Can't add topics on our site, and our shout box is messed up. Its currently forcing to a larger size even though there isn't a long string to mess it up.

I put in a ticket because right now our site is useless.

Honestly I really do wish they would post when they're making changes or if there are issues, we pay for our site and this is probably the 3rd or 4th time in the past two weeks the site hasn't worked yet mysteriously fixed itself.

Its a bit frustrating to not receive a notice when things are broken and to have our members ask us why its not working. 

And I work in application development so it makes it all the more annoying to have zero idea whats going on. Really guys some sort of notice/update/etc, it would be nice for those of us who do choose to pay for our sites.
