Default Site Security Update





Great News!

We are happy to announce we are improving security across our network and adding Secure Sockets Layer or SSL to the site. This means going forward you'll see Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS); the secure version of HTTP, the protocol used to send data between your browser and the website that you are connected to. This means all communications between your browser and the website will have another layer of encryption.
We take the security of your data seriously so updates like this do happen from time to time. There is no downtime or major issues anticipated in this change. If you do notice anything about the site operating not as it should please make sure we are the first to know. You can send a PM to this account with details and we can investigate. Thanks, and if you have any questions about this let me know.

none of the icons will fully down load when I open the site. e.g. the reply button has a black box with an x in it and the "reply" is only half downloaded. this is on my lap top. it seems to be fine on my phone

How is the site today? Are you still having loading issues or has it improved today? With regards to the icons, I see they are still broken so I have opened a ticket for this issue (Case #3127065). Hopefully our tech team will be able to get things sorted out soon. Thanks for your patience!

Cheers,

Erik
