This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

No HTTPS connection available?

I've been trying to access the site through HTTPS, but it keeps failing to connect. The password reset and login screens are also not loading with HTTPS. Could you please look into this?

While HTTPS is not necessary, both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox now (or will in the very near future), mark HTTP sites as insecure and in red, making people feel uncomfortable using them.  Not only that, but Google is now pushing sites that do not use HTTPS down in the search rankings, as well as sites that do not use responsive/mobile-friendly coding.

Have you checked into Let's Encrypt?  They offer free SSL certificates.
