    posted a message on HTTPS not enabled?

    Fixed! There was a system in place to do this upgrade automatically but it was misconfigured -- it's been fixed now, you should see embeds again now. Please let me know if you run into any other problems. Thanks for the patience! :)

    posted a message on HTTPS not enabled?

    Modern browsers are beginning to require https across every page of a website, they are warning users that the website is insecure otherwise. This is a good thing (as https is important) but at this time it's not viable for us to switch to https across the website for advertising reasons. As I understand it, we're working towards being able to do this -- and already some of the website in our network are https only -- but in the meantime we do serve sensitive pages (such as login and account management) over https and without advertisements. This is a good middle ground as it ensures your credentials are always secured, but certainly long term we'd love to have the whole website served over https.


    The reason browsers are now labelling connections over http as insecure isn't because anything has changed with http, it's still as (in)secure as it has always been, this forum is as secure today as it was 6 months ago, rather it's because browser vendors wish to cause a shift in understanding about the insecurity of http for consumers and incentivise providers into serving their websites over https.

    posted a message on Minecraft.net RSS Feed Link

    If you check the source of a page you can usually find any available RSS feed that way. If you go to minecraft.net and open the source, then ctrl+f for "rss" you'll find this feed:


    https://minecraft.net/en-us/feeds/community-content/rss


    Does that meet your needs? :)

    posted a message on Moderation is too slow
    Quote from ScotsMiser»

    There may also be an issue with the amount of care needed not to remove posts unnecessarily; I had considered reporting that particular post (as gobbledygook rather than being patently offensive) but declined to do so on the basis it might have been some sort of 'earthy' joke I lacked the referents to appreciate.

    [I've done the mod/admin gig, and (unless the offense is clearcut), standard procedure at those sites is to get a second opinion if the post is marginal.]


    …or it could just be a 'human factors issue'. The few things I've needed to report have been handled quite swiftly…(IIRC - in no case did I make a point of checking).


    You're more than welcome to report anything you have concerns about, the issue is not so much the amount of time it takes to process reports -- we have the capability to process many more -- it's that there are times, such as weekends, when we don't have as many staff active and it can take longer for someone to be online to process reports -- but once they are online, all are processed -- there are no open reports now, for example :)

    I'm looking to increase the number of active moderators we have in the coming months, our blindspot is currently weekends -- as I'm not available then. Sorry for the inconvenience :(

    posted a message on No longer getting web notifications for subscribed threads

    Sorry for the inconvenience, this is a known issue but because of the christmas period we're unable to deploy a fix. The fix should be deployed in the coming days, when all notifications should resume. Thank you for your patience.

    posted a message on I was logged out overnight, how come?

    A bug was identified and has been resolved, we shouldn't see any more issues associated with constant logouts. You'll still be logged out when your session is invalid, but that should be infrequent, if anyone is logged out frequently please let me know so we can investigate further.

    posted a message on Voting suggestions

    Thank you for your feedback. I agree that allowing one vote per day rather than every 24 hours would be an improvement. I'll make a note of this, but please note that I can't promise that this feature will be implemented soon. Your patience is appreciated.
