    All of the above!

    Recent Chrome updates are flagging sites that do not use encryption as "Not Secure", which is kind of correct, but not. Just because a site has SSL does not mean it is secure, just that data that flows between the website and your web browser is encrypted and can't be meaningfully viewed by any third parties (99.9999% of the time). Chances are that you actually want other people to view the data you are sending to this site anyway, so as 12thharmonic said, it's not particularly crucial.

    That being said - I'll get us all secure in the coming week.

    It should be good now, assuming I didn't miss something!

    Let me know if you spot anything.

    If you host on IMGUR or similar, try and use secure urls (starting with https) when posting here if that is an option.

    Just a note, I've been logged in pretty well continuously for the past year (maybe two) which I suppose is one of the joys of running firefox on a Ubuntu system. Login even stayed when my PC box went into sleep mode which has been ultra convenient. However in the past 48hrs I've been logged off twice. I'm hoping this was only because Darren did something like a reboot to the forum server...

    Hi Marcel, thanks for letting us know. it is very possible that things I have been doing over the last 2 days could have caused that. (changes to cookie path)
