This is a general offer to help out with development/support of the site for CoT. My real life alter-ego has around 15 years experience in web and general software development (JS/node, C#, Golang and AWS dev-ops, for the record) and in pure front-end dev and design. I'm a former long-time City of Heroes player who'd like to help out, and as game development is a little out of my area of expertise I thought I'd offer to chip in where I could be of some use.
Just as an example, I spent a couple of afternoons playing around with restyling of your site's main page. Below is a couple of screengrabs of a pretty minimal example, but its fully responsive, cross-browser (think I tested down to IE9), requires no JS (so should speed up the page) and has a much smaller CSS footprint.
I realise you may already have plans to migrate your site and forums once you start nearing release, but the offer is there nonetheless.
Best of luck for 2019.
