    UPDATE Sat Jul 23, 1:30 AM EASTERN TIME!

    Okay, here's what happened.

    I moved the forums to a new server today.

    The old server was a few hours ahead (like 6), which fucked up all the timestamps everywhere.

    So, when I moved the database over, everything was in the future. There usually is like a little restriction in between posts that prevents you from spamming, unfortunately since it had set your last post as somewhere 6 hours in the future, it wanted you to wait like 6 hours 1 minute to post again.

    Time should be catching up with us right about now though, so any odd errors you received, or post limits saying you had to wait 'x minutes' before posting should go away. If you received an error saying something like this: "XenForo_Exception: Cannot insert a message in the middle of a discussion. - library/XenForo/DataWriter/DiscussionMessage.php:392" That's just because the server is getting confused because it thinks you're posting before the last post in the thread. Meaning your timestamp < the timestamp of the last post. Usually, this never happens, because time travels forward at a constant rate. But since the clocks fucked up, it thought all posts were from the future.
    Happy posting.

    Also, a lot of slowness issues have been fixed! No longer shall the forums randomly hang on loading javascript assets!

    I ACCIDENTALLY FUCKED UP SOME SHIT WITH THE JAVASCRIPT, AND YOU WOULD BE SERVED BAD CONTENT, WHICH WOULD GET CACHED.

    CLEAR YOUR CACHE AND EVERYTHING SHOULD BE BACK TO NORMAL.

    I SHOULD HAVE ALSO FIXED THOSE WEIRD LONG HANGUPS THAT PEOPLE WERE EXPERIENCING WHEN LOADING THE PAGE.

    TOODLES!
