Anyone know why the new site is telling me it's insecure? Definitely don't want any of my private info to be made vulnerable and linked to a fetish site

I’m getting the same message. It’s saying the new website is “insecure” when you click on the link. Not interested in having my personal information compromised. Not going to the site until this is corrected.
Couple of things: this website (the old forums) uses HTTP, not HTTPS, so browsers will complain it's just as insecure. HTTPS is far better but it is difficult to enable because of the way the hosting was originally set up.

The new site is actually on a subdomain: https://discourse.bfforums.com. To make the link shorter, I created a DNS redirect which accepts https://bfforums.com and prepends the discourse part. For a reason I've yet to discover, this redirect recently broke and people were getting errors. Rest assured the new site is fully secure and is accessed from https://discourse.bfforums.com. I will edit my link until the issue is fixed. Please don't spread misinformation. Cheers
Great to know! Thanks, Umbris!

^I believe today is the last day, actually. So long BFF, you had a good run. Doesn't look like the new site is very active, hopefully that changes soon with the shutdown over here.

The hosting is not being renewed, so yeah I expect the site to go down in the next few days.

It's been decently active, but will get way more visits when the redirect is in place.

I never post the same thing twice or post links that people have already posted- you can just use the search on the forum and I sometimes update my dead links aswell if I can. I also tend to try to post more than one link at once.
I'm only turned on by hearing burps, I'm not turned on by doing them. Here to share links and discuss.

I can't give the exact date because I don't know what it is. GoDaddy seem to keep sites up for at least a few days after the hosting expires.

Interesting. Do we know if there's a cutoff time after which say certain functions of the forum won't work, such as posting and logging in? If that were the case, I could comfortably do a final backup and know that I had every last post archived, without people posting after I started the process.

Also, any preferences for which drive or filehoster to host it on?

Guys, when you're responding to a post directly above your's, can you please quote like "^" rather than directly quoting the entire thing? Looks much nicer and tidier, thanks :)

Yeah. Well, I had a backup from July (damn near risked someone seeing it on a text based computer lol but I managed to keep my chest blocking their view of the monitor), then I made another a few days ago, but now I think I'll do one daily one for however many (very few) days are left. Might as well try to make it as complete as possible. And if I access the site on another computer and it turns out to be dead, then I guess it's safe to pull the plug on any running backup (or maybe it will automatically cut off). I'm doing this for historical purposes and the community B-)
