Default Account login Security & change

I wanted to let you know that in the next day or so you may see a couple of small changes to the site.

1. Login screens. This is being done as we add an extra layer of security to usernames and passwords. The login pages, registration page and pages where you might update your account login info will be behind an https url rather than the usual http url.

This change is being made to stay current with recommended security practices and not in response to any problem with the site or accounts.

HTTPS adds security in several ways; verifying that the site is the one a server is supposed to be talking to and by preventing tampering by 3rd parties. It stops Man-in-the-middle attacks, improving security for both the site and for those logging in.

This should not impact your usual browsing experience. You will still login, still tick the remember me box, etc. The location of the login button has changed however and the page looks a bit different.

2. A few ads to help keep the lights on and the site free for all to use and enjoy. We hope that you understand the need. Once logged in members will see fewer ads.

I'm right there with you! I have so many passwords between home and work it's like the "twilight show" in my head trying to remember them all, plus the fact I don't remember where I wrote this one down! Ugh!
