Has the forum been hacked?

Every time I go into the forum today I get a huge pic of some random yellow car? Is this just me? Here is a screen shot

I've never seen that Opel Corsa before, So I think it's only you.

Try resetting your Safari and disable the unknown add-ons.

The whole site has been offline since about 10:30 eastern I think. Mods, what's up?

It was down yesterday due to a corrupt database. It happens from time to time, could be random or probably due to not purging out old posts if they have limited space.

DOS would make it seem slow or return "unavailable" pages. Yesterday's error was pretty specific about the DB needing repairs.

The image in question is actually supposed to be the little badge you get next to your ranking for how many posts you have. It's very strange that it would be the image of that car - that's not something a user can change. It would seem unlikely that the mods accidentally replaced the image. Sometimes browsers cache images, but again, I don't know why that particular image would have ever been cached for the url of the correct image.

For what it's worth, the mods rarely reply to threads like this.
