1) Your Search Engine Indexing has broken during the move. Expect a heavier-than-normal forum traffic as various web spiders crawl all over the forums. Persons using search engines to access the forums will meet with unpredictable results in the near term future.

I cannot upload new attachments, but I reckon that has to do with attachments being missing. I can add external images through image-links.

Tisk tisk... still no HTTPS.
Are you frightened someone might hack your connection and find out how much cobblestone you own?

But in all seriousness it's probably something that should be considered real soon. I think Google will be making Chrome block non-HTTPS sites sooner than we think.

I will look into SSL. It is not a priority but it can be addressed.
It is a priority when you consider that soon Google Chrome and Firefox (and a few others) will soon:
Google will be making Chrome block non-HTTPS sites sooner than we think.
This will be displayed with a big nasty warning pages saying that "This site is not secure!", similar to this:


((This is the error you get with a self-signed certificate when you don't have your root certificates in your computer's root cert store))

You'll be able to click a "continue anyway" button, but honestly, not having HTTPS in this age is quite bizarre, especially considering that HTTP considered deprecated (in favor of HTTPS) and that setting up and maintaining security certificates is hardly difficult anymore.

I have a writeup I sent Solus on this a few months ago (probably more than half a year now) detailing our plans to move to another host and put the page on HTTPS. Poke her and she can send you that document, or I can find it and send it over to you. It's on Google Docs, but it has a few important points which I won't enumerate here.
