Well that sucks. Poop

Especially because of security, but the forums weren't very well secured already in the first place (no HTTPS...) We're lucky the site isn't a serious target of anybody (yet...)

MyBB 2.0 is probably going to be released somewhere in 2017; it'll be really fancy and stuff Wink so the forums might deserve a refresh by then.

Soul, you'd ought to get everything in check. You never know when commie Chinese hackers strike. (Though we've seen Indian black magic spambots, oh the fun)

In seriousness, that's a very big security risk.

Well, I'm definitely not updating to what will end up being a downgrade overall... so... no. That's just dumb.

Will keep an eye out for what they do in future versions though.

And just because something isn't the absolute latest version, doesn't mean it's suddenly a HUUUUGE massive security risk. Same with not being HTTPS. Also, even if something is the absolute latest version, and has HTTPS, doesn't mean it's completely secure either. People blow all these things way out of proportion. There's no such thing as totally secure on the internet. Newer versions of things actually introduce new security holes all the time too.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

EDIT: I will get HTTPS set up once my host adds it in cPanel (it's currently in beta testing, apparently). So that's definitely gonna happen at some point.

Of course. I know it isn't the end of the world. Still, really irresponsible on MyBB's part.
Good to hear your host will provide easy HTTPS.
