Website Problems

I am experiencing a few issues with the website. Notably, the navigation bar on the left is missing (I have seen some comments on the forums to this effect, but they seem to be from 1+ week ago), and I am getting numerous 504 errors when trying to load pages. I attempted to email to and got an undeliverable notice ("the email account that you tried to reach is disabled"

I am attempting to load the password and submission pages without the navigation, but given the frequent 504 errors, even if I load the correct pages I am very skeptical that my answers will submit properly at this time. What can I do?

I've also been having issues connecting reliably - for now, I can still wait a bit to try to begin but the lack of reliability is definitely concerning. This is the only puzzle contest platform that I've had these issues with (LMI, LMD,, and so on have all worked perfectly fine every time) and it's really a shame.

I also don't have a sidebar currently but I do have links to the PGP R4 password and answering form pages.

The rules were very unclear about what to do in case of a server issue and some clarity would be appreciated.

I went to the answer form linked above to test how it is working now. It is now saying that I have 30 minutes to submit, despite that I never agreed to the rules and clicked the "I want to start playing" button. This is very frustrating

It's a bit unclear, but if the text "time is only animating" is there then your time has not started - it's only showing what the timer would look like.

Oh, I missed that entirely. That text is on the page when I view it, thank you!

Multiple times trying to load the answer form. I emailed my answers directly to immediately after completing but I've just been receiving bounce back from the mail server:

I can confirm that the problem is visible to me, too. Unfortunately this is something the web admin (Karel) will have to figure out; I just edit the puzzles :( In the past when this has happened we've given some more time to solvers; after Karel reports on what the problems were I'll discuss with the WPF Director and make a decision.

Dear players,

unfortunately there was some issue with the site which completely broke the DB.
I've restored it and I will come to each one of you who sent an email to info or
