I just have to work with LoP to get a new security certificate from an internationally recognized Certifying Authority.

Our self-created certificate (basically a binary identifier used in HTTPS encryption) is as secure as it ever was

Until recently, browser makers only cared that a certificate worked. Now they're trying to push ALL sites to use HTTPS (to make it harder for the NSA to monitor Internet traffic), and since [edit for clarity] our certificate is signed by "The Purple Pouncy Despotism" (see the bottom right of every EI page), they can't be sure it's a trustable cert vs a tool for International Global Domination.

Which, to be fair, it is. Just ask Nikki Peppermint. Or Trance Gemini -- but she'd say "international" is a ridiculous understatement.

UPDATE: EX ISLE IS NOT USING HTTPS FOR THE TIME BEING
This shouldn't affect anyone, because it turns out I turned it off
some years ago, due to some other issue-of-the-week then forgot

We really should be at least allowing it, though -- and we will.

Would this also affect posting youtube videos?

It shouldn't affect anything offsite; YouTube videos are hosted at YouTube.

It shouldn't affect anything on-site either, especially if you tell your browser you trust the Purple Pouncy Despotism and its certificate.

(And the PPD said I'd never get people to trust them w/o Trance Mind Tricks! MWAhahaha!)

Okay, apparently not *every* skin.

Could be a typo in a template that keeps the software from filling it in properly: "Licensed to: exisle.net, a subsidiary of the Purple Pouncy Despotism"

Who is insecure, here? The site itself? I was going to suggest Valium or Prozac . . .

If you hear of anyone having difficulty getting into ExIsle, tell them to type in http://www.exisle.net (they may have bookmarked some page as httpS://www.exisle.net/...)

I may have broken our old self-signed cert. We'll have a new one soon.

BTW, is Rae still a part of the Purple Pouncy Despotism? Was she ever? Why or why not? Asking for a friend (in Section 31).

Also, as it turns out, I didn't break our cert. It merely expired at 10yrs. And I'd already turned off HTTPS years ago, due to some cyberpolitical issue-of-the-day

Mark: SQL server problems kept me from accessing the board last night. Did anyone else have the problem?
