Hi,

The forums are moved to using the 'https' protocol, which means connections are encrypted (and passwords are not sent over the wire in clear text).

Everything should still work the same, but if there's any problem, please let us know.

Encrypting any site is now free with 'certbot'.

And surprisingly easy. I did it recently for another project (https://sensorbot.org).
