    It's come to our attention some people are reporting having login issues. This stems from our recently adding a SSL layer to the forums. To correct this issue you will need to update your bookmarks and links to begin with https://

    Example:
    Code:
    https://stratics.com/forums/uhall.35/
    The above is Uhall's address.

    Please also be aware that while we have added a SSL layer you will still see a message saying portions of the site are not secure. This is due to external images and/or links in posts originating from non-secure websites.

    Good stuff, hope it works out better than the last try :)

    I was curious about where you got the certificate from and on my way noticed that one old http link from the site itself:

    We use Cloudflare for DDoS protection etc, and set up SSL through them. Our options were Go through them, or Ditch Cloudflare, or finally pay $200/mo to them to set up a certificate from a 3rd party...

    Thanks for catch on the link, I knew I missed a couple it's tracking them down.....
