The link to the introduction thread in the "Let us know more about you by introducing yourself! :D" line provided on the online lobby sends players to the unsecured side of Hedgewars. Hackers might take chance here by asking new players to make an account and introduce themselves on the unencrypted site, or etcetera.

Is this fine?
If it is then okay, I just making sure about it.

Do you mean http:// vs https://?

Well, in that case, you are almost correct. You just picked the wrong link. Smile

The introduction link in the MOTD is:


But there's still a http:// link in the MOTD:


Yes, this should be fixed, there is no reason to use the http:// link. Thanks for noticing.
