• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)
  • Hi - It is possible that I have figured out part of the problem with the donations. I believe that if you try to use paypal balance or your debit/credit card that should work now. Bank transfer still seems glitchy. If you try with a card and it fails please can you let me know? Fingers crossed that part is resolved though. Thanks so much for the support - Freya

Okay, so I've notified Ben but he's been off having surgery and isn't really able to reply. It's the middle of the might for Lu.
As far as I can tell this is an innocuous issue so while it's annoying and a pain in the butt isn't not harmful or an actual security issue.

not a issue, this is just the HTTPS certificate I set up being invalidated with time, it just means your data is not verified with a certification authority, they will get if fixed, your data is fine, and it is still encrypted it is just that something expired and they need to hit a button to renew it so google says ok, yep still good.

Right? Gosh. Everyone go throw money down on the donations now so we can get a new certificate. sheesh
I know you are kidding but does the certificate cost a lot? Just curious.

I was scared to log in but took my chances lol

I am kidding - just to be clear for anyone who didn't catch that haha

No, it's not actually.
It's really only a matter of someone waking up who has access to such things. I don't have such powers around here. ;)

Yes, ordinarily one should worry about a certificate error if you were going to, say, enter your information on the site - your credit card info or other personal data. But since SF isn't keeping anything personal about you there is nothing to worry about at all in this instance.

lol I see. Well in that case its not such a big issue as it appears to be when i was trying to log on, it was telling me attackers might be stealing info, i was afraid we had fallen victim to a hacker. Thank you for the reassurance :)
