    Hello everyone. I’ve recently joined but I’m a bit concerned about chrome giving warnings that the site isn’t safe and asking if I’d want to advance anyway.

    Can someone explain why? This is the only ace site I’ve found with a decent sized community but I don’t feel comfortable sharing any information (which would make it hard to interact with people) if it can be easily accessed by anyone.

    I’ve been concerned about this as well, but don’t really use the site enough for me to have pursued it. Thanks for asking…

    I’ve been seeing the same warning messages too and at times the site is blocked completely. Guessing it’s just a technical problem rather than something sinister, but are there still any admin people around who could give a definitive answer?

    This safety message is still showing up w/Chrome – are any admins around?

    I’ve just had a message flag up on my browser regarding this too. Seems it is something to do with the sites certificate.

    I wonder how many existing and potential new users it’s scared off the site.

    Oh gosh =/ I remember visiting the site maybe a year ago? and I don’t remember the warning being there before. If I hadn’t already seen the site previously, the warning message probably would have made me not bother advancing to the site.

    It probably is something to do with the SSL not being renewed

    Ok, the site is safe, just not being maintained correctly. What’s happened is the site’s SSL security certificate has expired and whomever is responsible for maintaining the site hasn’t bothered to renew the certificate. Chrome, a couple of years ago, implemented required security certificates as standard and so displays the “unsafe” message, regardless of the site’s actual content.

    TL:DR: The site is safe to use, just lazy web site owner hasn’t been bothered to update the security certificate. 🙁

    Nathan and Angela – thanks – the SSL renewal issue makes sense as the explanation. I agree w/SilentWolf that the warning is scaring off both existing and potential new members 🙁
