    Would it be possible to get HTTPS working for Dragon-Hoard? I would highly appreciate the extra bit of security for currently unencrypted logins/messages.
    Now in the days of Let's Encrypt there is not really a reason not to do it.

    I'll upvote! And i would even participate in administrating (certbot on Debian e.g.)

    EXACTLY. Getting free SSL is easy. SSL is free with Let's Encrypt's Certbot or the admin could also use a free shared SSL cert with cloudflare. Shared SSL would not be ideal, but it would certainly be better than nothing. I don't feel comfortable with a login page that isn't encrypted, nor do want my ISP to know what I'm looking at.

    Also, it looks like the admin is using XenForo, an expensive (need to renew license every year for updates) proprietary piece of software for managing the forum. If the admin is worried the cost of upkeeping the site and maintaining security updates, I would recommend moving over to free and open source forum software.
