    As of this morning, it's been messy when I try to access the forum. It redirects me to the blog ( https://gfxdomain.co/ ). The forum link in the blog redirects back to itself.

    Sometimes I get in by going directly to some post (the "donate" one for example), and from there I can go to the forum's main page which is the same URL.

    It looks like a DNS and/or certificate error.

    First time I'm the only user logged in :)

    I also wanna know what gfxdoman.co is. It reports as unsafe at first. No one on this site mentioned maintenance. Be nice to know so we don!'t think our PC has been hijacked or spammed.

    gfxdomain.co is the blog of this site. A sort of a front-end for the releases posted in the forum with links to them.
    The "unsafe" part is not because of a hijack. It happens when the site's web certificate has expired or doesn't exist yet. You can ignore it and continue, or flag it as acceptable, or wait until the support people update the certificate and the message goes away.

    Cheers. Well it seems to be fixed since last night. I was worried the sites devs banned me for being me. Hopefully they never do.

    Seems it was some sot of "bad certificate problem" anyway, appears to have been fixed fairly quickly.

    Looking at old links in my OneTab bookmarks, the forum was using http access. As of yesterday it switched to https.
    Therefore the certificate problem.

    Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but why would you want to register, when you are already here.

    I thought we had to register on another site for torrents. May have misread it.

    You never mentioned which site you wanted to register with, far as I know, if you are already registered to GFXPeers, it should still work just fine. Only have to wait for GFXPeers to come back online. I've not heard anything about a new GFXPeers site or any changes requiring re-registering. Yes that happened a long time back, where members had to re-register, when the site was updated, but I've not heard anything of it happening again. Of course if you haven't got a GFXPeers account yet, then you wil obviously have to register, as your GFXDomain account is separate.
