Due to recent technical issues with Foonetic, a backup channel is now in place, #xkcd on irc.slashnet.org. If you have difficulty connecting to Foonetic, please join the backup channel for advice. The main channel is currently still in use.
In TYOOL 2018, this wiki still does not support https. Other than the general reasons why any site needs https, in this case there's a much larger problem:
The login page is http only! It sends your password plaintext over the internet.
It is strongly recommended to NOT LOGIN to this wiki until this has been remedied.
If you absolutely need to make an edit, please use a unique password you don't use anywhere else.
The #xkcd IRC denizens have attempted to reach out to this site's administration but were unable to reach them, which is why we put up this message to warn everyone.If you know how to reach the website's administration, please do so and ask them to remedy the problem, here, on the Geohashing wiki, and on forums.xkcd.com. It should be simple, because xkcd.com already has a valid certificate.
