Will there be update to site?

The reason I'm asking this cause there are a few things I see happening here that may cause future problem with the site.

Flash will no longer be supported my some or if all browsers. Not sure if you were aware of this, but I thought I'd just mention it.

"Adobe Flash is going away in 2020; better, support for Adobe Flash ends in 2020. Adobe won't support Flash anymore, and all major browser makers revealed plans to retire Flash in their browsers."

Also there is something new I was told. Any site without SSL certificate or HTTPS will no longer be viewable (for now it's browser related), at least this is what Godaddy support told me. You'll also be removed from google search ranks, not as if you want to advertise, but it's something I thought I share.

I also like to throw this out to you as well. If you're looking at any time in the future to possibly give the site a fresh look. Let me know, I can help you on that. I figure help out if needed. seeing this site has made a huge reputation as a Urban Explorer Hub. Still love the site!

I've been wondering about the Flash issue as well...

Yeah, that might be an issue. I know Av has said that he doesn't plan any other major updates to the site, but I really hope he adapts it to handle the shutdown of Flash. This site still sees a somewhat decent level of activity and it would be a shame to see it disappear.

I wanted to build one myself, still can. But I have no time for this, thinking if we could help in any capacity (seeing this site has a good following and reputation)would have more of an impact. But I'm just trowing it out there, I really don't want the site to go down or be affected. Also I don't want for some reason starting this thread get me kicked off. Lol!

Years ago, there was an alternate windows based client;

I think Crypton published the source to Git.

AvChat still a thing? I thought due to obsolescence of Flash, Av would not even bother running the server any more.

Nah, nobody uses Avchat anymore. These days everyone's in the discord server, which should be pinned somewhere.

I am so behind the times. I think someone mentioned there was a discord sub (or whatever that stuff is called) but I have never used that stuff before. I'm a creature of habit, I like the old internet lol all that and I work for a damn ISP...

Interestingly, as far as the HTTPS issue goes, I've found that this site does in fact support HTTPS, but for whatever reason, it defaults to the non-secure HTTP. I just checked and I'm currently using this website under the HTTPS version, but I changed a preference or something a while back so that it would default to the secure site version. I don't know if that helps or matters at all, just thought I'd throw that out there.
