Well, has anyone actually done anything about this?

Connections to this domain still aren't SSL encrypted, so why should anything change.

I'm assuming no. Mostly we're shouting into the void here.

I wonder if thecommenht in the Whine Cellar about the link to the deceased domain of the forum skin is a contributor. If mobile users are using the mobile skin, they won't see this link.

Hmm, well TN was slow before, also. Dead links don't affect load speeds, as this particular link leads to an alternative (although not relevant) URL. Anyway, the slowness has happened in the past and then sppeded up again. Possible server(s) overload at certain times.

It happens pretty often, several times a day. But then again, TankNet is free (and free of nasty ads, a fact for which I am very grateful), so I accept the somewhat flaky performance. All I'm saying is, TN is harming itself by retaining non-SSL-encrypted connections.

And you are correct. TN is harming it's long term survival by not fixing these issues.

We are aware of it, but not sure about the fix.

I'll be happy to bring you in contact with one of my IT guys, if that's what it takes. Just drop me an email. I didn't even know that you were an admin of this site, otherwise I would have contacted you months ago.
