HTTPS Enabled:

- The core of the website and the static images are sent via HTTPS now, and the website will redirect you into HTTPS most of the time. Update your bookmarks.
- Now would be a good time to consider changing your password to the website especially if like me you have used the same password for SWC for over 17 years. Reminder to always use a unique password for every website you use, and consider using a password manager (such as Keepass, Lastpass, 1Password, pass, etc). Account passwords are stored on our server with a unique salt and hashed using bcrypt.
- User submitted content may still be submitted via http, so the website will remain "mixed content" (for example: images in forum posts, images in descriptions and links to external sites)
- If you are having issues with parts of the page rendering, please whitelist this website in any security extensions you are running (such as ghostery, firefox tracking protection, etc), and disable "mixed passive content blocking" if you have it enabled for this website.
- Huge thankyou to Sel who did a lot of work over many weekends to update our software to be able to do this change.

Live Chat

- The IRC Live Chat applet has been discontinued, in its place is a page with connection instructions to IRC and an invite link to the discord server (discord link only shows to logged in accounts).
