Just get plenty of back links and we will be fine
The community really needed this. I wish I'd remembered to register earlier
For the unfortunate soul who is worried on how to access the old forum for records of old stuff, Don't worry.
At the moment, it is suffering from a rare condition called "error 526 - Invalid SSL Certificate". Some say it is contagious, but they possibly don't know a thing.
To the Noob-minded, this means that the website has lost it's secure certificate, so you can't access it via https://.
There is however, a simple and way to access the forums.
Simply change "https", to "http".
I can hear the questions now...
Spoiler: The Questions
Q. But Deibo, how did you know this fix?
A. I studied in college. We just touched on the subject, so I wanted to know more. Basically, use Google.
Q. But Deibo, how long did it take for you to realize it wasn't working?
A. I was on pretty much every day until it happened. So, I would take it, 12 hours.
Q. But Deibo, is the forum still secure?
A. Only time will tell. But for now it's secure. I do suggest not to log in though. Because this forum is superior now.
Q. But Deibo, what...
A. No more questions. What am I, The dictionary or something?
Don't use https until it's back up and running.
no it is no longer secure your connection can now be MITM
all logins are now no longer secure from hackers
Which means: Don't login in a public wifi
Most likely won't fix it's own SSL certificate, I expect it won't ever be back (until shoghicp gives up the domain name)
which means: Dont login over the internet because you never know what ISP sniff everything their user sent
Or... Just don't log in. Because:
lets not start the debate of which forum is superior...
yes! do no! do! no!
you already started the debate about whether to debate about the superiority of the forums.
