Smilies are not displaying in the messages now. Even the pulldown menu to insert the smilies does not display them.

Jon is correct. In fact, this is not the "real" bimmerfest server. This is just a make shift version of it. The other server is still being repaired. As they are co-located, we have to rely on technical staff to deal with this. The current diagnosis is a failed RAID card...but then again they have also thought it was the memory and a hard drive too. We are not exactly happy about recent circumstances and have started looking into alternatives for hosting. Hopefully things will get back to normal sooner than later.

Sorry for the downtime :(
