Things are now back to normal and we're happy that the problem is now resolved properly. Thanks for waiting everyone, it's greatly appreciated.

The database now appears to be back up, and extended features have returned - we'll continue to keep a close eye on things for a short while. Thanks for your patience.

The database service provider reports that the problem has been resolved, and we should see things return to normal before too long.

We are currently having a few issues with our database so we have disabled all extended features within the application while we resolve the problem. Status pages, and the ability to post apologies continues to work.
