Site not secure

Just letting you know that the site appears as not secure on my end.  Could just be me, could be nothing, but I’d thought that I’d mention it just in case it’s a problem.

Dammit. Now North Korea has all my battle reports.

We're doomed.  ;)

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

Nothing is showing up here.  What's the exact message that you are receiving?

In the url, there’s no little lock symbol and it says Not Secure.

It is nothing to worry about Calamity it is just Google pushing their own agenda. Every Web address that is non-HTTPS gets this warning when using Chrome. HTTP sites, such as this one are still as secure as they have ever been. If you are using Android press the little 'i' that appears by the URL of any site you visit and you will get the same warning.

This is because the site does not use https.  As Alienscar says, it's not anything too concerning.  Kindred will be able to provide more details and/or a better explanation than me when he next logs in.

When you browse and post a website using HTTP, then the information is transferred to and from your machine in readable text. So someone could read the info if they intercept it.

HTTPS means the data is encrypted while in transit, so if someone intercepts it, it looks like garbage and has to be cracked open.

So from a browser perspective, your information that you send is not secure, not that the website has been hacked, etc. Its not a big deal if someone intercepts your post and reads it, since they could just browse the forum and read it any way :)

As a bunch of nerds, most of what we post is utterly unintelligible to those on the outside encryption or not.  :)

In short, because of the ancient server and whm, it would be a huge amount  of effort to add a certificate and https to this site,...
