It's been quite a while since oldunreal had an overhaul, but we are moving to another server which require some updates and changes. The biggest change is the migration of our old reliable YaBB forum to phpBB. This system expects you to login with your username and old password known from YaBB.
If you experience any problems there is also the usual "password forgotten" function. Don't forget to clear your browser cache!

After login it redirects to "https://www.oldunreal.com/phpBB3/"
Just checked in a private window, only the first link redirects to http, the second one redirects to https.

Use the main page links!!! Click in the menu on "Forums"...or in the news from 18-01-2021. Both links are using redirection to http.

I had a global redirect to https, but can't do it that way because it will kill access to both ingame news and masterserver update (for now at least). Since both forum and mainpage redirect to https too it shouldnt cause and problems.
But I can't find a single remaining http redirect anywhere?

Nah, the hosting service provides this via "one click", not entirely sure what they do in the background there, need to ask. I think I can do it via htaccess as well, will check once I find some time :)
Still, I don't see any http redirects yet?

Forum keeps forgetting I'm logged in, if I open a thread in a new window or leave without logging out... when I come back it looks like it logged me out.

Can you please enable to edit your own messages, regardless when they were posted. Or at least consider this?
Now messages seem to lock shut from editing after a couple of days.

This is being disabled to avoid older posts being raped by (ex) members going rampage, ripping entire topics useless. We've had this problem 2 times now, so I let this option enabled. I could increase the number of days I think.

I understand. I have seen this happen in other forums.

One of the reasons I asked this was that ividyon merged two threads started by me of the same issue in different versions. I'm used to start new threads for issues that still occur in a new release to keep clear that a report is still relevant for a new version. Now ividyon prefers to continue in existing threads I wanted to update the start post and thread title to include the new version number.
