Hello again!

Over the past few days, we have made a lot of progress on the site functionality so I wanted to give an update!

Submissions/Approvals
These are now working as expected! We found some settings that were keeping this from working that have been temporarily changed to allow things to function properly. This has also allowed the "All Collections" list to update as expected as well.

Forum error messages
This has been fixed as well with the changes we made. Again, this is another band-aid fix to the root issue, but it will let things get back to normal while we continue to make the changes.

https
I have heard the question a few times, so I figured I would update here with the status of this. The server is currently already https enabled. The reason why it isn't enabled site-wide at this time is largely due to the forum software being out of date. I have plans to set up a sandbox page at home, run the required forum upgrades, then begin developing a new theme. The new software supports https, so this combined with the other efforts of updating/auditing the code for hardcoded paths should allow us to finally enable https site-wide.

A huge thanks to everyone for reaching out to report issues over email, site PM, or Discord. Having a lot of data points helped to determine what was going on better. Another big thanks to the staff members who were helping me to test the various functions as we made changes to verify functionality.

And, naturally, thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding as we worked through this. I know it took longer than I hoped, certainly, but we're certainly on the road to making a lot of progress in updating the site for the future.

Thanks again so much for your work, Mr. Bickley.  As busy as I've been, I still felt the loss when the site was down.
 
Thank YOU sir!
 
Thanks for all your hard work in getting the site updated and things back on track! It's good to see the site humming along again, and will be happy to see the additional progress, once it's able to transition to HTTPS. Your efforts are much appreciated!
