Short version: We are upgrading the Room of Doom's software. The upgrade will be done by the end of March 2014.
Long version: The gallery software we use, Gallery2, has been causing some trouble to our databases. As a result, we are upgrading it from major version 2 to major version 3. However, the new version isn't just a simple, drop-in upgrade. It is a complete re-write requiring us to import the user accounts, galleries, and photos from the old database and re-establishing other parts manually, such as the theme.
However, there is a problem with either our gallery database or the importation process that is affecting our ability to import our tables of information. We are actively working on a solution and are consulting with the developers of the Gallery3 software to help us import our database info. We cannot give a precise estimate of when this will be complete, but it should certainly be done by the end of the month (March 2014).
All of your photos, movies, EXIF data, tags, descriptions, comments, and more are being retained and safely stored on the site while we work on this. When the upgrade + import are completed, everything should be as it was before but with a new, faster, more stable, modern software suite running it all.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
