***UPDATE*** 11/4/12. 11am EST
We have re-enabled site formatting. Should we experience further unsustainable server loads we will most likely just turn the boards off for a period of time to have a more "graceful" site rebuild. We know where the problems are and it is only during extremely high traffic like we experienced yesterday that it rears its ugly head. Working to fix the issue will be the focus over the coming hours and days.
Again, thanks for hanging in there with us !!! RTR!

Obviously with the traffic tonight during the 2nd half especially, the server was getting hammered. This is one of the few times in recent memory that we've had this happen so we are investigating root causes.
We have turned off some stuff so you might see some funky formatting or additional timeouts until we make some infrastructure adjustments over the weekend or into next week.
Meanwhile, Revel in the win and RTR!
... And thanks for your patience!
