Recently, Google became very aggressive about flagging websites that were not 'HTTPS' compatible. In order to remedy this situation, Jcink has added a secure link to the forums. Each link to Generation Z is protected, but the new 'HTTPS' link means all traffic between your browser and server will be automatically encrypted and cannot be monitored by a third party. While it is not important to use the 'HTTPS' link while browsing at home, it is essential to be secure if you are using public WiFi.

You will know if you are using the secure website by looking at your address bar. If it says https:// and there is a green lock icon or something similar, then you are browsing with full encryption.

The only way to avoid the "not secure" notification on your browser is to begin using the newer secure link. Eventually, all the 'HTTP' links will be phased out. The secure URL to use to access Generation Z is: https://generationz.jcink.net

Please begin using the updated URL. We are requesting members update their signatures to hosts that are secure. Photobucket is the most popular image-host and is secure. I will also be going through and editing links and signatures to the secure Photobucket links as I see them. If you notice any broken links or images, please bring them to my attention. I will check into the issues with the links and update them as I see fit.

Would the change to the https link be the reason why most of the games in the arcade do not work?
