As you may see by reading this news, the WhoAPI blog is now completely opening on HTTPS (SSL). Earlier it was opening on a regular HTTP protocol, and there were some errors on https. Since we were super busy with launching a new WhoAPI website, and new domaining tools, we just had to pick our fights. But I guess there’s nothing that a little overtime can solve.
We hope that this change will make your “stay” here on our blog more safe and secure and that you will come again, and share the content that you find here. It should be common sense today to have as much content as possible display via a secure line. The world keeps pushing everything online, but personally, I always have a feeling that this same world isn’t paying enough attention to the security of our data. We definitely want to be one of the few who do, instead of many who don’t.
Besides our blog, one of our new assets that we have is our forum. We had a lot of fake accounts and spam posts right away, so now we installed a captcha system, and hopefully this will reduce the fake registrations and ugly spam posts. We invite you to help us combat this by registering and posting real comment, so that we create real value together. This will also help us make sense of everything so that we can invest more in building this community.
We also recently lost the entire forum footer while working on improving the forum. Funny how a simple “background image change” can turn into few hours of work. But that’s also behind us, and now the forum is working nicely, and we plan to upgrade it again soon in the future.
