This is just a quick update on the state of the site.
Things are, as predicted, much better on the new host. The horrible proxy errors are gone, and things are much more harmonious. There were some lingering issues from the migration that took a few weeks to quash (we went an entertainingly long time without the ability to delete spam comments), but we’ve now got that sorted and are moving forward, with the current priority being making comments less awful and fixing the variety of display bugs (especially on mobile). Yes, replacing those captchas is first on the list. Look forward to it!
If you have any questions about the technical side of things, feel free to ask in the (currently still frustrating) comments.
