Quote from: Mordecai on December 31, 2017, 07:39:53 amWhat I don't like are the responses to uniform pictures. Make it a formal rule to praise in public, critique in private. I'm all for feedback, but not the way that certain people here like to deliver it in public (and then forward said complaints on to NHQ to send down the chain rather than sending a simple private message.)
Quote from: etodd on December 31, 2017, 04:34:27 pmSometimes new folks may be a bit timid about asking particular questions in their squadron. Having a little more anonymity here, gives them the opportunity to ask away ... and not have to feel embarrassed.Its really good thing. Keep it open, no questions barred, as it is now.
Quote from: whatevah on December 31, 2017, 03:51:32 amGreetings cadets, seniors, former members, disgruntleds and others!I'm looking for your input on ways to improve CAPTalk. As our lucky 13th anniversary approaches, I want to shake things up and put a little fresh air into the site. As the only CAP-focused message board, I think there is a duty to be the best it can be. I have my own impression of things and ideas I want to implement, but I'm asking for your input.1. What things do you like about the site?2. What things do you dislike AND how do you suggest improving them?3. What would you like to see added?4. Would you consider helping in CAPTalk 2.0?Private messages are fine if you don't want to respond publicly. Please keep this on topic, any drift or personal attacks will be dealt with.
Quote from: TX CAP Mom on January 01, 2018, 07:46:17 amOverall I'm glad Captalk exists but I wish it wasn't sometimes so negative toward newbies, cadets asking questions, or just CAP in general.
Quote from: abdsp51 on December 31, 2017, 12:09:34 pmAnd I think that the suggestion offered by another poster is flawed. CAP Talk is no different from any other form of social media. Making a post a user knows there will be criticism and critiquing. It's common sense if you don't want any comments or anything said then don't post.

Quote from: Eclipse on September 05, 2018, 04:39:33 pmNo, the question is and was why is it necessary?This site doesn't do anything that requires the additional overhead of HTTPS, nor the expense of the certificate(s) themselves.
Quote from: The above linked articleOne common misconception about HTTPS is that the only websites that need HTTPS are those that handle sensitive communications. Every unprotected HTTP request can potentially reveal information about the behaviors and identities of your users. Although a single visit to one of your unprotected websites may seem benign, some intruders look at the aggregate browsing activities of your users to make inferences about their behaviors and intentions...
Quote from: Eclipse on September 05, 2018, 05:08:32 pmThis site is free for users. Who will pay for the certs?
Quote from: chuckmilam on September 05, 2018, 06:55:24 pmThe certs will auto-renew via the Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME) clients. I don't know the specifics of the CAP Talk hosting, but I imagine there's something that will fit the environment: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/client-options/HTTPS is becoming less of an option and more of a requirement, so it would be good to get ahead of the curve.
Quote from: Eclipse on September 05, 2018, 05:08:32 pmWhat, exactly, would be "revealed" from a public, free site?

And, if the user is anything like the other 65% of users out there, they've reused the password here on other, arguably more important sites. So capture the user's username and password, log in as them, find their email address from their profile, then go hit their mailbox with that same password, profit.
