Fur Affinity has been the target of a massive DDOS this morning. Our host has contacted us that they are working on suspending traffic to FA temporarily in an attempt to mitigate the DDOS.
The DDOS is so large that over 100+ other sites are being impacted by the event. We continue to monitor.
These changes are currently in testing and are slated to go live by the end of this week. List will be updated with any additional changes once the fixes are live.
Again, THESE CHANGES ARE NOT YET LIVE - patch notes are provided as a preview.

Just a note -- I am currently cleaning up spam and trying to tweak our anti-spam filters. All of Xenforo's built in spam tools seem kind of lackluster so I'm taking some time to try to clean them up today. Once I'm done I'll re-enable forum account registration.
General tweaks to the template and improvements to layout.
Improved how comments look (removed some clutter).
You can now use hot keys (Ctrl-B to Bold, Ctrl-I to Italicize).
Made improvements to the standard desktop navigation. Should prevent issues where the Logout...
Re-wrote, re-styled almost every page of Beta.
CSS platform has been changed to CSS Less.
"Dark" theme has been completely revised (goodbye, gradients!). We have also removed the other Beta themes as the templating system has changed dramatically. They'll come back once once all...
