A couple of things worth mentioning.
We're working hard behind the scenes to bring the biggest updates the network's ever had. This does mean we may appear more inactive, but behind the scenes it's certainly not the case.
AmericanShogun_ has also recently returned to college, so he has a lot of work of his own at the moment that he has to keep on top of.
As for the XRun times, I manage all of those and yesterday I went through them all and reset any invalid times and banned the players. It's a very time consuming thing to do, so I can only do this when I have enough chance to do so.
Hope that clears things up a bit
