Site security

When you log in you get a warning that the site is not secure.
I guess that one means around this is to use a long and complex single use password (not easy if you have ADHD!) but is it possible to use the https prefix to secure the page?

Happy New Year Kunga!

I don’t know much about computer security but this topic has come up. The forum hasn’t changed in that it was never a secure site. What’s changed is that many devices now alert you about unsecured websites.

Below is a post about using https and a thread about the “Not Secure” warning.

Re: Site security

This site has never had https in the address bar thing, I think that's a David thing just like the rest of the stuff that has never been fixed on the forum

Re: Site security

I can't enter the site sometimes for weeks from Turkey. Google can't find it and it just rotates. Do you know why?

We've had several site outages that have lasted for weeks or months.

David, the site owner, has said he'd take steps to make the site more robust, but thus far he has not done so. He's also turned down offers from members to help.

Have you ever looked on the device you used back then if you have a setting that will reject any unsecured site that you visit? All of the PC (not sure on phones) have its internet settings for this kind of privacy purpose.

He's probably been busy with something. With all that's happening around, it's really exhausting both mentally and physically to think of everything. I find no issues with visiting this site though.

You're lucky you haven't seen the ongoing issues with the forum.
Namazu is right, there have been quite a lot of unexpected outages,
with no idea when, or even if, the forum will come back online.
It's been happening for longer than covid has been a concern.
