I've reset all of your avatars because a lot of them were broken or served over http instead of https. You can now upload your avatars directly in your user control panel instead of having to host them on an external host first.
I've also fixed the mailer, so all recently signed up users should have gotten their verification e-mails by now and should be able to log in after they click the link in their e-mail.
Last but not least, I've done some extra pagespeed optimizations tonight to offer a faster browsing experience. If you have been getting timeouts or bad gateway errors tonight, don't blame your pc.
Tomorrow I will look into re-organizing a couple of forum sections to welcome modders and drifters from other games.
