Regarding unsecure or unencrypted connection warnings on this board

Post by jmitchell » December 20th, 2018, 11:28 am

An SSL certificate costs $15 per year and and I haven't bought one yet, which is why you will see a warning (perhaps a red, unlocked padlock in your address bar)

This is nothing to worry about because cellphone networks and wireless routers encrypt your data anyway. This board requires your email address and that is all. Everything else is optional. By the way, the server for this board is located in Auckland so your data isn't going very far anyway. If there's enough demand then I will definitely buy an SSL certificate but right now it doesn't matter since nothing personal or private is being shared via this forum anyway.

Be sure to use a nonsense password that you don't use on any other account because passwords are currently sent in plain text.
