Clearly the "Important announcement about BGG communication!" is "Our communication channels are broken!"

Someone felt we needed to know not to reply to the message, that replies would not be read, and that we really needed to know who all the BGG admins are.

They must be having issues with the site. Earlier this afternoon I saw a MongoDB error.

We're just building suspense! Or something!

Okay...it should have included an actual announcement. Now it's just a teaser for the announcement, which I assume will come shortly.

It was a test of their "emergency broadcast system", in case the world runs out of board games?

The proper announcement is being sent. The Geekmail timestamp on mine was about ten or so minutes ago. Based on the content, I predict a new thread about how horrible it is.
