Please visit the site using https:// instead of http:// and let me know if anything's broken.

Thanks!

Please visit the site using https:// instead of http:// and let me know if anything's broken.
There are some parts of this thread page that are not yet secure -- probably either your profile image, the icons, or other images on the page are linking to an http server.
- I get the same "not secure" indication when I check your profile page and a new user's profile page.
[EDIT: Avatars are currently being pulled from the http server even though they are already available on the https server.  The images in my sig are coming from the http wiki server.]

PM sent to test if that system is working.
- The PM sending page shows not secure.
[EDIT: Awaiting reply/confirmation that PMs are working and secure.]

Email sent via your profile link to test if that system is working.
- The email sending page shows secure.
[EDIT: Email reply received so that system looks good.]

Wiki link at top of forum pages points to https://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/ which redirects to https://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/arcade.htm and shows the front page instead of the wiki.
- Wiki still available on http, but pages 404 when you try the URL with https.

[EDIT: Wiki is working in https.  Link at top of forum pages is https, but now it redirects to the non-secure http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/Main_Page]

File Repository link at top of forum pages points to https://files.arcadecontrols.com/ which redirects to https://files.arcadecontrols.com/arcade.htm and shows the front page instead of the file repository.
- File repository still available on http, but pages 404 when you try the URL with https.

[EDIT: Only File Repository things left to fix are the two links mentioned in reply #9.]

Front page (http://arcadecontrols.com/arcade.htm)
- "Submit news" button link (top left) is still http.
- "Msg Boards" button link (left) is still http.
- "Chat Room" button link (left) is still http and returns a 404 message.
- "Wiki" button link (left) is still http and link does not work because it points to "newwiki" instead of "wiki" or "oldwiki".

Please visit the site using https:// instead of http:// and let me know if anything's broken.
Several more things to add to the fix list:

Index page - https://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php
- Under the "File Repository" forum link, the text "Discussion about the File Repository" links to the non-secure File Repository page.  Changing the URL to https redirects to the front page as mentioned earlier.
[EDIT: Redirection fixed.  Link still needs changed to https as mentioned below in reply #9]
- Under the "controls.dat" forum link, the text "controls.dat and related projects" links to the non-secure http://controls.arcadecontrols.com/ page.  Changing the URL to https redirects to the front page.
[EDIT: Redirection and link fixed.]
- Under the "Moderator's Forum" link, the text "Please see Moderator's Guidelines." links to the non-secure page.  Secure page is good.
[EDIT: Link fixed.]
------------------------------------------------
Controls.dat forum - https://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/board,45.0.html
- Above the page numbers, the text "controls.dat and related projects" links to the non-secure http://controls.arcadecontrols.com/ page.  Changing the URL to https redirects to the front page.

[EDIT: Redirection and link fixed.]
------------------------------------------------
Moderator's forum
- Above the page numbers, the text "Please see Moderator's Guidelines." links to the non-secure page.  Secure page is good.

[EDIT: Link fixed.]

It seems like, at least for me, the Dragon King website only works when not using https.

http://dragonking.arcadecontrols.com/static.php?page=AboutIFIFJ
that works

https://dragonking.arcadecontrols.com/static.php?page=AboutIFIFJ
that doesn't

The problem is Google or Chrome is sometimes trying to force the https so it seems like the site doesn't work.

Pages like UncleT's and the Slagcoin mirror also don't work with https.

http://unclet.arcadecontrols.com/index.html

http://mirrors.arcadecontrols.com/www.slagcoin.com/index.html
[EDIT: Both sites now working in https.]

Redirect is fixed.

File Repository page and downloads working in https.
- Don't have a login to test uploads/logins.

The only File Repository-related things that need fixed are these two links that are still http instead of https.

Index page - https://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php


File Repository Sub-Forum - https://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/board,44.0.html

I used to work a gig that banned www.arcadecontrols.com but forum.arcadecontrols.com wasn’t on their filter.  It was amusing.

Heh. Same actually. I forget which filtering service we were subscribing to at the time but I was bemused.
