This is just a little note to let you all know a little bit more about what's going on at the moment.
Searching has been disabled for the time being so that a) we've a bit more resource available to minimise the effect of spikes, and b) we're tinkering with things linked to it, requiring it to be turned off (it's a choice between the whole site or just the search being turned off while we work on it).
We hope to have things which are disabled/affected restored before Monday, but I'll update this thread as things develop...
Thanks for your patience and best regards,
ASN Admin Team.
