The forums have had some additional issues above and beyond things like
static.o.o being unavailable. Some of the issues seem to be
infrastructure related - and there have been some updates in the
infrastructure to resolve some, but there's a L4 appliance that handles
the virtual IPs that is out of support and needs to be replaced. That's
in process. It /seems/ to be just IPv4 connections (which this appliance
handles), as we've had nobody confirm seeing the issue with IPv6 (which
goes through a different appliance).
As one of the forum admins (but a non-technical admin), I've been closely

than 6 or 8 months.
