Website Security.
This website now has a SSL certificate. An SSL certificate is a bit of code on a web server that provides security for online communications. When a web browser contacts this secured website, the SSL certificate enables an encrypted connection. Passwords are now private when registering for an account at the forum.

If this is your first visit then the only cookie on your hard drive is a session cookie which is native to PHP and enables websites to store serialized state data. The cookie is used to establish a user session, to pass state data via a temporary cookie, which is commonly referred to as a session cookie. The cookie is automatically deleted when you close your internet navigator. Read the privacy policy for more information.

Bots.
In computer terminology, a honeypot is a computer security mechanism set to detect, deflect, or, in some manner, counteract attempts at unauthorized use of information systems. Generally, a honeypot consists of data that appears to be a legitimate part of resource for the attackers but actually isolates or monitors the attackers of that website.

This website uses honeypot. Verify that your email address is correct because another attempt to register using the same IP address cannot be made until 1 hour has passed. Also, only 1 account per email address is allowed. This forum does not resend validation emails. Therefore, do not use a bogus email address.

The focus.
Client software updates will be limited to bug fixes until such a time when this website gets busy with members. The focus will be an advertising campaign for kboardgames.com. A game trailer, which is a short video about the game, might soon be made.
