The database appears to be in actual WORKING condition now (thanks Keenan lol). It took a while, but the old system apparently didn't like working properly...
Thanks for your patience during the past three weeks with recurring issues (you've probably seen more than enough 403, 404, and 500 errors :P). We hope that the current system will continue functioning properly for a long time (forever?).
