    OK - I'm going to be sending out a Mass Emailer' that'll state that the URL / Address of the Forum will be changing to ;

    https://mistsofavalon.forumotion.com

    Then tonight - Central Time - I'll go live with It. That will give People enough time to adjust to It.

    Uhhhmmm...

    Portal Enabled - Page 2 Giphy

    Not true.

    Ya'll have been logging into - http://mistsofavalon.forumotion.com

    Now It'll be - https://mistsofavalon.forumotion.com

    Installing the SSL Certificate gives the URL the https instead of the ole http which is now considered "Not secure"...

    -//-

    I'll wait for that to settle and or any other questions. We do it at 09:00 Central.

    Note that I hope this will be painless and quick although I know It likely won't. Be prepared for some Bumps - IE Login Issues, Graphics Issues, etc. but know this...

    I'm on It no matter what happens.

    Postponed for two hours to 11:00 Central while I do some research into this further...

    Gotta make sure I do what IS necessary - and not what IS NOT necessary so I don't create Issues for Us.

    OK - So heres the straight skinny...

    Once I set the SSL Certificate Registration in motion (Phase I) - It'll be set up for the URL that the Forum is currently under. Now while this is not a problem for setting up Our own DNS when I get to It in Phase II - I would like Our Original URL to reflect something better than ;

    The mistsofavalon.catsboard.com one.

    What I propose is a choice of the following alternatives to the one We currently have...

    1. mistsofavalon.forumotion.com

    Or

    2. mistsofavalon.goodforum.net


    That said - After I've given Ya'll a chance to weigh in and select one of them - I'll come back Online for 18:00 CST - Send a Mass Emailer to the Membership with the "NEWLY Picked" Original URL plus additional details about the changes afoot. This "NEWLY Picked" Original URL will be the URL to go to if Our Domain Name "themistsofavalon.net" has Issues.

    Now as We get to Our own URL (themistsofavalon.net) in Phase II - Beforehand and until then - The "NEWLY Picked" Original URL ;

    1. mistsofavalon.forumotion.com

    Or

    2. mistsofavalon.goodforum.net


    Will be how We get to the Forum until the "themistsofavalon.net" URL is functional.

    My Choice is the following.

    mistsofavalon.forumotion.com - Number 1

    That stated - Once We have some sort of a democratic choice regarding that - We'll do the SSL Certifcate Registration and go from there.

    I survived too. cheers
    I would have opted for choice 2 if I had the chance.
    But I missed the ball.
    Never mind what counts is we have an operational forum.
    Thank You Mercuriel

    I'm going to relax the Upgrade schedule a bit.

    Portal Enabled - Page 2 Giphy

    That said - The next Phase is Phase II. In this Phase - We will be giving the Forum SSL Certification. This Certification will give the Forum the Secure Socket Layer Protection of an https:// prefix as opposed to the now considered NON-SECURE http:// prefix We became so used to in the past.

    Once again though - That'll be tomorrow. We'll let the Dust settle on this Upgrade first.

    Yeeehaaaw Brethren. Phase I seems to have been a success...

    Portal Enabled - Page 2 Giphy

    Its off to Work for Me. Have a great day Ma Peeps - That is what is left of It.

    cheers
