    Just to let you know that I’m moving the Scorched3D website (this one) to a newer/better server. So there may be a little downtime over the next week, I’ll try to keep the affected time to a minimum.

    Think it’s pretty much done now. Let me know if you notice anything wrong.

    Looks like forum email notifications were getting lost, should be fixed now.

    Hi Gavin :

    Since you asked …

    I thought I’d try to be helpful and let you know that all of
    the game servers have been off-line for quite some time.

    I’m not exactly sure what this means :

    but since I’ve already posted in the news thread … I’ll ask you a question.

    I made a post in the complaint section about the https header being
    sent out in the e-mails. Has this been addressed or are people still
    being warned that your site may be harmful to their computer and
    then further advised to exit the site ?

    In order to maintain the news section as news, please feel free to move
    this post to the complaint mentioned above and post your answer there.

    All the Best,

    Rommel

    Hi Again Gavin :

    If you will delete this post as soon as you’ve read it, I will
    at least have some way of knowing that you have seen it.

    Feeling that you may not have been made aware of the
    seriousness of the message sent to the potential users,
    please review the attached copy of the screen capture,
    that was submitted on your site’s behalf, by DireWolf.

    By the way, DireWolf deserves the credit for the discovery
    and for making a concerned post to alert the moderators.

    The credit for what transpired as a result of our
    later posts, must rightfully be given to others.

    A proper response to the post in the complaint section,
    would make it easier for me to forget about this issue.

    Oh yeah … In case you thought that my request to have
    my moderator status restored was a joke, it was no joke.

    I would very much appreciate a public reply from you.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Rommel

    I’ve just installed Chrome but I don’t see this warning anywhere.
    What URL were you using?
    What version of Chrome is it?

    Hi Gavin :

    It was good to see the servers back on-line in time
    for MoM to get a heavy sand hog for Mother’s Day. ; ^ )

    I’m using : Version 34.0.1847.131 m ( up to date )

    You’ll need to consult with DireWolf for his browser details.

    He initilally reported the warning in the Quote of the Day
    thread on Sunday November 10, 2013. That might be the
    best place to start your investigation. After we exchanged
    messages, I made a post in the complaint section so that it
    would be sure to receive your immediate attention.

    The post in the complaint section is titlled :
    Web Site Problems and/or Error Messages

    It was ignored for more than than 2 months
    and then, after I bumped it, I was threatened
    with banning for mentioning it to Kangabunny
    in Panther30’s thread about closing his server.

    You’ll find more good reading there, then …
    see the phoney complaint he forged in my name,
    immediately above the Web Site Problem thread.

    In any case, the problem is that when I log on
    using the https option, and then make a post,
    the BBS software does not strip off the s.

    You should be able to duplicate this by logging in
    under another account using the https option and
    then making a post in a thread you are tracking.

    All this time, I had thought you were a loyal fan. ; ^ )
    It’s a shame you haven’t been tracking my posts.

    The section of the BBS software where the e-mail
    notices are sent, may contain an option about this.
    If not, it should be a simple matter to include an if
    statement to change https:// to http:// in the e-mail.

    I haven’t checked this and can’t say for sure.

    My concern is not the established users
    like DireWolf, but recent new users that
    might get spooked into not returning.

    Hopefully, Google and the other bots
    aren’t getting e-mail notices and then
    archiving the https:// address.

    If you are just now learning of the warning, thanks to the
    servers being down, which gave me the opportunity to
    make a post in the news thread, then the warning isn’t
    your only problem. It’s been reported for six months.

    Good luck and thanks again for the reply. I was
    beginning to think you were ignoring this too.

    Best wishes,

    Rommel

    P.S. to MoM : Happy Mother’s Day you ruthless “mother” !

    P.P.S. to Gavin : To save you some time and assuming
    that you track the news thread, I’ll log back in using the
    https option and submit a test message for you. BRB

    Oops … I’m not sure why but chrome can not find
    your site using the https option :
    https://scorched3d.co.uk or
    https://www.scorched3d.co.uk
    Both addresses return the message … Webpage Unavailable

    Most likely, it’s due to my security settings.
    I’ve not been using the https option lately.
    I may have even accidentily refused the cert.

    Oh yeah, I thought of something else … PayPal !
    If the securtiy certificate is an issue with Paypal
    perhaps modifying the BBS code isn’t important.


    P.P.P. and Final S. :

    When logged in normally the Pay Pal link gave
    me a secure ( https ) connection to PayPal.
    Wasn’t sure if the referring site address was
    required to have an approved security cert.
