I noticed recently (which can also means I didn't pay attention to it before, not that it's a fresh thing) that my browser shows the forum connection as 'not safe' (i.e. not HTTPS, I presume). Is this intentional? And ... is it safe?...

It's always been like that, I guess they don't want to pay extra for security as this is a public forum that can be read without logging in anyway.

I've never got any bugs or virus troubles from the WG forums over the years....so, I guess it's safe enough.

As long as you don't give personal information, like credit card, you should be fine. 


Nothing interesting to write.
