Default Important Security Update!

Great News!
We are happy to announce we are improving security across our network and adding Secure Sockets Layer or SSL to the site. This means going forward you'll see Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS); the secure version of HTTP, the protocol used to send data between your browser and the website that you are connected to. This means all communications between your browser and the website will have another layer of encryption. We take the security of your data seriously so updates like this do happen from time to time. There is no downtime or major issues anticipated in this change. If you do notice anything about the site operating not as it should please make sure we are the first to know. You can send a PM to this account with details and we can investigate. Thanks, and if you have any questions about this let me know.

When exactly will this change take place ?
My browser shows this as an unsecure connection......and https://www.priusfourm.com does NOT work.

Should be added within the next week or so. We'll post once it's been added.

OK.....so I assume that when the change is made users will be REQUIRED to connect with https......right ?

Since that syntax now results in a failure, it will be a big shock to everybody when that happens.
Hopefully they will remember this post.
I think it could have been worded MUCH BETTER to indicate the problem that is going to result.

Unless maybe there is a way that the site can accept BOTH secure and non-secure connections for a while.
In which case, this "pre-announcement" looks to me to be pretty ill-timed and wasted effort.

I believe if a user tried to access the site without HTTPS, it should redirect them to HTTPS.
If not, the user would need to edit their bookmarked links.

Once it is live, we'll post it here.
