* Update: Success! The forums are back online!! *
With the official launch of Windows Phone 8, our forums have been crazy busy these past couple of weeks. And to make them even better for our active user community that's growing larger every minute, tonight we're pulling the trigger and rolling out a bunch of awesome updates.
We'll take the forums offline at approximately 8:30pm ET, and a few hours of downtime is expected while we go through the upgrade process. In the meantime, the rest of the site will still be fully usable.
