I hear there are issues with the forum. What are you still seeing go wrong?

It's not working with Chrome, when we try to post we're sent to a page that states "The information you are about to submit is not secure", there are two options, "Go Back" or "Send Anyway". If you click Send Anyway you arrive at a page that says "An Error has occurred" and you are logged out.

In Edge it's pretty much the same only the forum allows you to post from the page that states "The information you are about to send is not secure".

Haven't tried FireFox since this workaround seemed to be working.

I see the following at the top next to the url - "Not Secure". Doesn't happen on the home page though.

One bit of good news, the resident troll has been quiet. Not sure why though.

Because we can't accept new members. I should have let admin know that little detail also. My bad.

I can no longer send a topic via email (send this topic)~at least it never arrives. I have sent several to my daughters, wife, friends that never arrived.

Also, if I reply to someone's post, it will not allow me to post it~I have to come back~ copy and then delete and go to the thread and hit reply, and THEN paste my article, it is the only way I have found to work at least for me.

In answering a post while in the midst of answering and you want to answer another person's post along with the one you're answering, you just can not hit insert quote (Insert Quote) and see it appear, you must do it manually by copying and paste.

Sheriff, while you're in town~let me ask this question~two or three years ago I had a computer failure and had to login in under RB when I was originally under Red Baker and lost about 5000 posts or more I cannot remember~is there any way to pick those up under RB? It is no big deal but would like to be able to have them all under one name because it is easier to have them all under one name for a few reasons.

As RB, I have this issue.

"Also, if I reply to someone's post, it will not allow me to post it~I have to come back~ copy and then delete and go to the thread and hit reply, and THEN paste my article, it is the only way I have found to work at least for me."
  But ironically only on the two older laptops. The one newer lets me quote and post as should be.

As to your issue of Chrome Alan. I only use chrome and nothing else yet here I am.

Insert quote has never worked for me since I joined GCM.

The "Not Secure issue that Jaime mentioned has been with me for months now.

Admin.

It almost seems that different people have different issues at times.

I might note that last summer two people were trying to join GC but were unable. And it seems as if no new members have come on board for a long time.

There might be another issue that I am not remembering. If I do I'll post again.

I stated my issues with Chrome, they are exactly as you and Red have described. I'm using Edge at work and only for this forum and it allows me to use the Quote and Post buttons with minimal aggravation.
