Just what I was about to say. Many people won't post thanks to the browser warnings and/or extra annoyance of having to confirm everything.

Still not fixed, been a couple of days now. Evidently putting people off posting as there's hardly been anything since this started.

The digital team has been informed and a fix should be in the works.

Hello!

I'm Toby - I'm one of the Ops Monkeys at Future.

Fixed it! :)

Technical Nerdy Details for those who care...

Seems that the letsencrypt certificate configuration setup for retrogamer was relying on an Apache authenticator which broke sometime in early December... we then all went on holiday.

_then_ when I was informed that the site cert's were broken, i tried to renew the certificates but the apache method failed, and so did the TLS-SNI method ( https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/201 ... ture/49996 )

Thus i updated the certbot scripts, prodded the servers a bit, ran some certonly commands, reloaded apache with updated certs, and most importantly added better alerting to tell us a few weeks before certs expire rather than waiting for people to tell us via email...

In summary - Things broke, fixed now, wont happen again.
Please feed your admin monkeys and get it fixed.

EDIT: Erm... not using https now? Didn't you use to do that?
