Some good news

Postby super_dipsy » 03 Jan 2018, 08:50

It's looking like there may be help coming to get more development work done! Avalanche is apparently hiring someone who is going to have a part time role helping out here, which will be great!

Have you talked to Avalanche about your own salary, Dipsy?

Welcome Palmtaiga! I'm sure Dipsy passed the memo along that my ranking was to be artificially increased by 1000 points. I'll let you get to it ;)

Suggestion: Move the site to HTTPS using LetsEncrypt free SSL certificate and set a crontab to automatically renew it before it expires. Takes about 3 hours to set up and the entire site from games to the forum could be certified. Good for instilling confidence in newbies... there have been a few threads popping up about browsers warning that this site is not secure when entering passwords.
