I've just completed the necessary certification for a more secure forum experience and this should take effect within the next few hours.
The forum will therefore become https://domain name and will display a green padlock. It's become necessary in an insecure world of hackers and phishing etc and is almost mandatory for many web extensions/plugins nowadays.
There should be no interruption of service either, so please keep posting away!
Unlinked the https address until such time as it's activated.
