Been away from my main computer for about a month or two, and when I wanted to see what I had missed at func I found myself logged out, and when I wanted to log back in I got this warning in Firefox (and my OS is up to date, including Firefox):
This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised
So far I've got this warning only here. And I'm scared to log back in now. Should I be?
I get that warning every time I try to login with 1Password.
It's a new warning in Firefox, but nothing has actually changed -- func doesn't use https so passwords are not sent encrypted over the Internet. This has been true since the beginning. However, the password is only sent once and then func uses a cookie to keep you logged in. The contents of the cookie are hashed. Long story short, this is not a super secure website so don't use the same password here as your bank account etc.
func doesn't use https
Any specific reason why not?
HTTPS Is More Work
It used to cost money to get a HTTPS certificate, although services like Let's Encrypt seem to have done away with that hurdle. Still, it's another thing about the site that has to be maintained and set up...
there's a bug with creating new user accounts since the server upgrade. (gives an error and fails.) I'm investigating it now.
^^^^ That Was Me
"register account" should work now. The problem was the new version of mysql didn't allow dates of 0000-00-00, which func was using as a default for some fields. Changed it to 1000-01-01 which works again.
Can't Login Still
what about already registered accounts? I'm registered as DelusionalBear, can't login still, gives me an error: "ERROR: Login failure. Check your spelling and try again."
There is no user by that name. perhaps you registered during the time that registration process was broken? Anyway, try registering again.
Metl Is Ur Email Working??
Forwarded you an email which is beyond my capabilities.
Page Load Times
Anyone else getting slower than usual page load times for the site, or is it just my Australian™ Internet acting up the past few days?
I Have Been Getting It Too For A Few Weeks
but I also thought it was maybe Australian internet...
If you are on windows, try in command line:
...and you'll see what bottleneck you have on your road to func_msgboard :)
I feel like it's a commentary on my university studies that I'm currently learning a CCNP subject and I don't really know how to use tracert properly yet.
I guess Telstra is having trouble connecting to Germany though...
If any identifying information about me has leaked with this screenshot, please don't use it to hack into my house or anything like that :(
It kinda bounce between servers in Hong Kong - lol weird :D
I have problem like this though: http://imgur.com/a/MJuwW
Every time I post, I get mixture of CSS/JSON and other shit, instead of proper site view.
If I refresh this, it will post reply again.
I have to go to main page and load thread again, to see my reply.

Trying to see how to type unicode on my phone....let's try copypasta out of this online thing...dang it. Guess we mobile folk are stuck with autocap nonsense.
It's Impossible To Edit The News Before It's Approved
I accidentally hit submit instead of preview on a news submission and submitted the news without any links. And I can't edit it in no way. It's kinda ridiculous that I have to submit another news to get it right.
Metlslime can you add a feature the allows to edit your own submited news before it is approved?
yeah, that seems like a good idea. I'll add it to the list.
Can you give us mods "Edit Post" powers for normal posts please? It would enable minor censorship on the few occasions it's required, rather than referring to you or marking as spam.
Also, but maybe trickier, a "Move Thread To GA As New Post" option would be cool.
