    Since yesterday when I log in, I get a red warning message in the address bar say Website Not Secure and I notice that it doesn't have the padlock sign?

    Has this always been the case and I've just noticed it?
    Anything to be concerned about?

    (Probably) Chrome browser is trying to show that any website that isn’t using https (ie encrypted) is insecure - the information exchanged between your computer and bluemoon is not encrypted and therefore can be intercepted.

    This is reasonably fine, unless someone wants to go to town on bluemooners. Or people use the same passwords with the same logins on multiple websites.

    Risk balancing really, but Google are making a concerted effort to get every website onto https (encrypted) web communication.

    It would be useful if Ric had the login screen ecrypted at least...

    @Damocles did flag this as something we needed to do a while ago, but when we tried to implement it it caused a number of problems with the site so it got put on the back burner. It is something we will do though, but it might not be until the end of the season when we do our regular maintenance. Can't really justify taking the site down for any length of time at the moment with the games coming thick and fast.
