Noticed this morning that I am receiving bright "red" warning in the site address stating site is not secure and risk of attack is "high"

Some sort of security button not flipped at GS this morning?

You're using the http address. Those are always "insecure". When you do banking, you're using the https address. Those are supposed to be secure and involves certificates which cost a lot of money. I tried the https://www.gamesquad.com but I got connection refused. My guess is it is not configured but I am not the site owner. You would have to as @RandyT0001 -- jim

I didn't expect GS to have a https url because it doesn't involve money except for supporters making their contribution. That should be secure, although I do not know if it is. I just looked at BGG for comparison, and it is https, surprisingly to me. FaceBook is secure. CSW is not.

https everywhere is the target. there is a $ fee to be paid at the moment which is the main driver it isn't everywhere already.
