Hi everyone

Update: As of May 2018, all wikis on Fextralife are delivered through https. Enjoy!


We are slowly working on moving the site to https format permanently, starting with new wikis for upcoming games. All our wikis can be accessed on https, but from now on new wikis will automatically send users to secure traffic.

Why the change?
The internet is collectively moving in this direction, and this move should help users feel safe and not receive warnings of doom from their browsers

Does it mean it hasn't been safe so far?
Since Fextralife does not collect personal information (no credit cards, or real names or addresses etc), there was never a need for us to force https. People are more likely to lose this information to an insecure wireless connection at a hotel or by using the wifi at a restaurant / hotspot.
Your passwords on the site are safely encrypted and stored - don't worry.
You have always been able to access https fextralife, the only change we are making is moving towards removing access to http fextralife so all versions "force" the request to https.

So what about "not secure" warnings from Chrome, etc?
Google has decided to push people to apply https everywhere regardless of the actual need. Any page with a "form" (like a search field) that is not on HTTPS will get such warnings. There's absolutely zero danger to your personal info for typing "weapons" on a search field - but the google automated systems decided to go this way to push the change through for all sites.
Your info is not really in danger. Unless you're typing your SSN into our wiki comments. In that case, well, you got bigger problems! :P

What's the timeline?
We are working on changing the bulk of the site to https in a slow rollout over the next few months. There are many considerations to this because, as a wiki and forum, we have many user submissions that are obviously not from https sites, which generates further warnings from browsers "There's an unencripted meme on this page!".
For now, our upcoming wikis such as Code Vein and Monster Hunter World are on https, and we are looking at moving our older wikis this way too.

Please feel free to report issues, make suggestions or ask questions here!

cooli, thanks
What could have been, what should have been, is nothing more than a feverishly sweet dream left unshared.

So far so good, after that issue yesterday got resolved.

This is really random but I couldn't find a suggestions page for some reason. Is there anyway to implement a random page button for these wikis. I basically just want to be able to hit a button on the Dark Souls wiki and be brought to a random Dark Souls page.

That probably needs another thread, but I can add it to a feature wishlist. Sometime soon!
