Anyone logging into any site should always be using https, so it's strange to see that some of you aren't.
If you're not aware that not using encryption is bad, installing this browser extension might be a good idea:

FYI: My bookmark in FF refers to http://sharetehfiles.com/forum/. It redirects to https://sharethefiles.com//forum/ (double slash) which results in 404 errors for all scripts and css files. That was an easy fix for me. I just changed the bookmark but maybe you could fix the redirect to make it easier for other users.

Thanks for the good work.

Why do I have to enter a captcha code every time I log in lately. The message says I have logged in too many times but I'm not using STF more than normal.

Still getting the captcha message every time I log in. I have also noticed new posts in my name that I have not made. Has my account been hijacked?

The only posts your account shows since 2009 are the two posts in this topic.... :eyes

So guys.... thanks for the reports, we now have multiple reports there is an CAPTCHA issue, which FYI affects staff too as you can see by moeke's post, so we already know, meaning more reports aren't really necessary.

Since this issue is in no way blocking anyone from using the forum, and because in many countries there is currently a holiday called "Easter", perhaps you could settle down, eat some candy or eggs and enjoy the site for a few days. Or just stare at the hypnotic conveyor belt below. :whistle

Happens to me still, but I think I will stare at the hypnotic conveyor belt for awhile.
Thanks momijigari, for helping me kill some time. LOL

There's a certain bug in newest Apache httpd version that in our configuration causes phpbb to think everyone who uses the forum has the same IP, which translates into the captcha issue. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do, have to wait for apache to fix the issue.

I have applied a workaround, while waiting for a permanent solution.

Greetings all!
Loving the new board theme, but I find that it's difficult to tell which topics are read or unread, since the amount of "boldness" on unread topics isn't very, well, bold. This is probably in part due to my rather poor eyesight.
In any case, is there a way to change the board theme? I thought there used to be an option for this, but I've dug around in the options and don't see anything. Any suggestions for making unread topics more readable would be appreciated. Oh, and no, using the "show unread topics" option is not desirable. I'd like to see them in context.
Thanks!

You may chose your preferred theme in UCP under Board Preferences

I got a notice when I attempted to access the site from firefox stating something like "security notice, the owner of the board .....something expired." I added an exception and no issue. Not sure if on my end or the boards, I do use a vpn (PIA). Just a heads up.

I can't see the full box in Chrome, where it says the user- and passwords. Only in Firefox. So I was a bit eh? about what to do until I tried the latter browser. It shouldn't be a local prob since I tried in Incognito mode first with all extensions off.

G-day everyone, had some trouble getting into the site last couple days. I learned of the user- and password from the Emule Chat group, Thanks for all your hard work, appreciate everything done to keep this site as great as it is. Yes I panic every time the site is down, especial when a show I know should be available, but I understand maintenance is a on going thing with a site as active as this one, thanks again.

The browser i'm using didn't display the message at all (Brave). I learned the login/pass from TV Undergroung.

Anyways, glad you're back.

You guys really should have an alternative means of communication for when the forum is down, like a Minds or GAB account.

I agree with Tauros - I never know where to find out what's going on when the site goes down, so any pointers would be appreciated.
