There's been a bit of downtime on the site (not just the forum) over the last 48 hours. I've been in touch with my web hosts who are keeping an eye on the situation. I've also noticed that the site's been slower loading than normal, so I'm doing some work to make it better. Sorry if you've hit any snags recently.

Ahh that's what happened yesterday.  I spent 10 minutes worried that my internet was having issues... Then I tried loading a different site.

Are you sure you're not accidentally clicking the banner ads?

I'm sorry, that shouldn't be happening. I've blocked luckyparkclub.com from advertising on the site, but I've no idea if that'll stop the redirects – it might be something else that's making it happen. I haven't been able to replicate it, so can't easily check why it's happening, but I'll keep searching.

I've noticed that none of the @ tts  are going through in the last week, e.g. the last post. 

I'll try @tting myself here for good measure 

@The Hole Got Fixed

Edit: nope, didn't work

Edit 2:

Problem is far worse than I thought... No @tts that worked in the past are displaying, for example the last post in the end of year awards thread:

I was wondering why the @tting in the Introducing and Whatever Happened To threads was not working.

Sorry all. I'm aware of the problem and I'm trying to work out what's causing it.

Can anyone let me know when was the last time they successfully managed to @ someone? I'd like to know exactly when it stopped working, if possible.

I believe this post on 31 October was thanked a couple of days later as a result of the @, Joe, though no way of being sure.

Also, for weird, though assuming it could well be a side effect of something you're doing at the moment:

Thank you. On 2 November the site failed, and my hosts made some changes to the server. I suspect something they did is causing the problems – it's created some other issues that aren't directly related to the forum.
