This has been put up to the PS+ crew to look at, they've been doing some catchup post Gencon but it's on the docket soon as they get a clear spot on the plate to look at it.

I fix broken things. If you need something fixed, mention it on the suggestions board.
I also sometimes speak as website administrator and/ moderator.

Let's Encrypt

Old post, but still a great idea in 2017 or '18, '19, etc.

There's a service/thing here that can allow you to set up SSL for free --
"Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit. It is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG)."

I've heard tell of many-many sites running a BBCode forum getting hacked into oblivion-- and this site doesn't even run encryption on the password reset/creation page. For all I know, I may have just created my account on a forked copy of the site...
