WHOA! I just got a warning page as well in my up-to-date Firefox I'll point Alisa here as I'm sure she'll be able to get in touch with Chris to see what can be done about it.

Interesting. This page is secured based on the HTTPS pre-fix of the URL(as are the other pages). Interesting the home page isn't secured.
A couple of web pages (facebook and homedepot) have been acting strangely for me since latest Google up date.
Hope someone can look into the matter.

Since Lisa's passing last year, we are still trying to come up with site admin status and such.

This is all on me. I've got a recent email into GoDaddy to gain access. Waiting to hear back, now that I should have enough company identification for them.

I may have to start a new customers ticket with them to get a proper response.

That's for your continued patience.

Thanks for the update. If I trust the site, I usually ignore the message and go ahead anyway. But, I don't visit the home page too often.

I probably speak for others when I say we appreciate the work you're doing.

Hey it's Vask. Drop me a msg if you need any help on the tech side w/ anything.
 
It can be software dependent if the problem is a mis-match between local and remote root certificates. Firefox and the Firefox-based Pale Moon keep their own local store of root certificates, which can be useful in such a situation. Other browsers do not, and thus fail.

However the message here does not suggest root certificate problems. It looks like the site's local SSL certificate has been allowed to expire, even though the site is still public and online. A good browser will allow the user to make and set an exception on a per-site basis, usually after dire warnings about online banking.

The problem is still ongoing today. Most hosts offer a free SSL certificate with the rental of the server space. All it probably needs is for someone to access the host control panel and click a button to update the (annual?) certificate.

I'm guessing that's why there are no new users to this site...

I'd be backtracking quick smart if I came across it... heck, I'm even wary of it now and knowing it's supposed to be ok :cool:

I spoke to Alisa about this, and IIRC, she's been in touch with Chris about it, but I don't know what's actually been done about it.

As far as no new users, yes there have been quite a few, as I watch that list specifically since I have access to it. In that case, the folks who have been coming here of late are not confirming their email address, which is necessary, so they haven't been listed as new members. They've been able to log on a few times, but are probably only interested in Dawn 2, so not bothering to confirm their email address, so they aren't "officially" new members.
