FYI on a technical note we do not support secure https connections to this board. For those that like to worry, there is NO personal information and NO banking information ever stored here, so there is no need to encrypt. You need to deal with your own chrome browser settings to get rid of the message. The only thing we encrypt are the user passwords which are AES encrypted and those are stored encrypted which is an internet standard encryption scheme. If some other spyware or keystroke logger application on your own PC is spying on you, then clean it off. There are no plans to move to a secure site at this time, but I will look into it in the near future to see if it is something free that we can do or if it is an extra cost to the board. Thank you.

Did you consider going for https even though there are no personal info like banking accounts etc? Those notifications don't look pretty and might drive away some users.

I don't think our website hosting supports it without extra cost, but I will check into it again to see if it can be done or not.
