Site Security

Hi, I received an update from OZ on this Site Security. Here is the response to my question versus Senior Member Duckface's comments and subsequent removal of my request for Forum help on installing a hanging wine rack over my u-dinette. My next two questions are: Is it possible to get my POST reinstated on my previous request? Next, how do I become a Senior Member?

Thanks for contacting the tech support desk.

The reason you are not seeing the green lock has to do with the security settings on our server.

Last year google began to push websites to use https instead of http as a security update. A few months ago they began to actually began to display that little red triangle;"not secure" on browser address lines.
We hand coded an update to make the LOGIN page https. This is the page where user credentials are passed and the only sensitive data we store. Once a member has logged in the site reverts to http (and the alert begins to display in browsers). Using https on all pages actually breaks some things the forum. Offsite links and hosted images may no longer work, ads don't display, photos, etc.
So... as you login the page is secure (https) but once you have logged in the regular site is http. Since no login/pass info is being sent on these pages we believe this is safe and reasonable. We will eventually switch to full SSL but as noted by other posters there are some concerns to weigh as we make that choice. The login pages here are secure (httpS) but as noted, the rest of the site is not. We store no financial info or other sensitive content here and we long ago changed login pages (where password data is passed) to meet current security standards.
You can read more about the google alerts here:

By learning how to properly quote?

Actually, Senior Member title is post count related so just keep posting.

Not directed at YOU but all posters in general. The more populated a thread becomes the harder it is to decipher the conversation without quotes.

First are you old enough to be a senior member?
Additionally several documented senior moments are a PREREQUISITE to becoming a senior member.
Some examples are and not limited to.
1)Improper use of the quote feature.
2) Ninja editing.
3)Crapppy spellinnngg.
4) Run on and on sentences.
5) Bad punctuation,,!!.
6)Finally and this ones very important, making numerous incoherent and meaningless off topic responses to a thread.
