Hi,

first oft all I'd like to thank you wermy for providing this community with these awesome services (forum/wiki/etc)! It really allows people to connect and work together.

However, I noticed that the forum does only use http instead of https. I know (or hope) ppl do not share their secrets here but I still think it is a big security issue and given today's easy way to get certificates for free this could easily be solved.

I'd love to see this implemented! What do you guys think?

Cheers

It would be nice but by him doing this site and a very few others, that SSL cert costs some major coin these days. You could donate some cash to support said feature.

Hi. :)

Thanks for the suggestion. One of the top things on my to-do list is moving to a new server (hopefully sooner than later), so I'll look into doing this then.
