thanks for the answers toady! and good luck with the new art; i hope it all works out ok.

you've said in the past that you intend to update the bugtracker when you have time - is there any chance of that happening before the commercial release? it is over a decade[!] out of date now, after all.

in a similar vein: is there any chance of updating the forums to https? http is rather antiquated at this point - my browser complains every time i open the site, lol.

The purple miasma certainly gets the point across - don't go here, it's NASTY!  But... I'm wondering if you might consider making it transparent?   I never thought it was right that we can't even see what's underneath the stench cloud.  Then again, it does add a little bit of !FUN! by way of potential surprises.

I think part of the reason it doesn't use SSL is because most people here have externally-hosted avatar images, and having HTTP images in an HTTPS page tends to result in "mixed content" security warnings. Of course, it also seems to require HTTP URLs for avatars, so that doesn't really help things much...

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

Is there some major risk we're all subject to by this being an HTTP URL instead of an HTTPS URL?  I assume it would just be our Bay12 passwords at stake if anything.
