okay after doing some research I concluded that I needed to download a font that could read the symbol.
I downloaded the fonts presented here http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode ... upport.htm, but they still didn't fix my problem. Any ideas?

Fonts shouldn't be an issue because we are using web fonts -- fonts that are downloaded by browser when you visit the page (just like any other element on it: image, html, css and so on).

I'm trying to reproduce this behaviour on my local computer but still without the success...

OGLemon, I need your help with one more thing: in Firefox, with the right click on the missing character (missing hexagon) open "right click" menu and choose "Inspect element (Q)". At the bottom of the window Developer tools will be opened from which you can select "Fonts" (on the right side) and there you will find list of fonts used to display this text. First it should be "Source Sans Pro Regular", and the second one write here. Tnx :-)

I opened up the developer tool and right clicked on the missing hexagon, but the font list only shows this. http://i.imgur.com/2EP5FnC.png

I've put additional web font with all kind of characters (DejaVuSans) including problematic hexagon character. Forum is a bit heavier on the first load, but afterwards browser will cache it and white hexagon should be shown by now. :-)

(This, of course, is not a permanent solution)

We've moved to a new server with SSDs and switched to really fast protocol called SPDY which requires SSL (https-only!) so you are now surfing both fast and secure! Enjoy! :-)

We had a database crash around 12:00pm UTC. Table with posts got corrupted so I've pulled max-hour-old backup of it. Maybe you will notice some missing PMs or meta-data which have been created in the meantime. Sry :-(

If I don't put 'www.' before 'dubstepforum.com' I still get the 'We'll be back soon' thing

Strange -- maybe cache or something (which browser/OS is in quesion?). Now I've changed a configuration so the server is forcing redirection from non-www to www.

Our hosting provider will perform maintenance on Wed/02/Jul/2014 between 23.00 and 09.00 UTC next day so the DSF server during this will be offline.

Site's too big to be a forum. It feels like a city, compared to the little town it used to be. I'd like to be able to bump into the people on the other sides of the forum I feel lost in.
