RIP tinypic, thanks for all the fish

fixed, thanks.   Yes that's right. A deeper reason and what has drove this is that local storage is different on http and https. This has forced our hand.

https is being forced on on xat.com and xatech,com.   post here if anything breaks.

- tinypic doesn't support https, that's a problem, xat can't be 100% https if users are still using this service.

Incorrect, tinypic and other non-ssl hosts could still be used for image hosting if xat delivered the data through their own servers (by requesting the data using their own servers, and transmitting it to the user).

A historic example of xat using their own server as a gateway to image hosts can be seen in their old GetImage5.php file (http://i0.xat.com/web_gear/chat/GetImage5.php).

 

Forcing users to adapt to an SSL supported host will only frustrate users, a very bad suggestion from you to cut Tinypic access, Jedi.

I don't know if it's related, but in the past weeks, when i try access reglinks of IDs in the same browser, in the ID box shows my id; (obviously if i try complete it, will say that the id is already registered)

But when i try in the anonymous mode (google chrome), it don't show the ID box, we can proceed with the registration and finish it but it don't show the ID; (causing doubts in buyers, as example)

I've noticed that it is happening with everyone and with all the IDs, so the cause it's not a reglink issue, proofs:

http://prntscr.com/fpdlzz (example in the same browser)

http://prntscr.com/fpdng6 (example in anonymous mode)

I covered the k1 and k2 due to the fact of prntscr and imgur be a public directory.

That means 2 requests -> more delay to get the image.

register.php is reading info from cookie. That's why you can register an id in anonymous mode.

Is this related that all kinds of flags from FLAG power don't work at this moment of posting? (ugh)

Maybe there are other smileys that do not work now, further investigations needed

Well, yes and no, it should be // instead of https:// to be sure it works on http and https.

it should not. The chat box + apps imo should be embedded with the https:// code and chat box embeds should be made so the embed code provided by xat is https aswell.

 

Since the admins seemingly plan forcing https:// on all chat groups aswell, it is imo senseless to have the embeds use http still, that breaks the use of it.

 

 

My idea would also be to just force https:// on sites like:

xat.com/login

xat.com/name

xat.com/buy

xat.com/powers

xat.com/transfergroup

xat webgear editgroup

 

all sites with password inputs. The rest could stay http imo. No need for a https chat box + apps embed then at all anymore.

 

Edit: Besides that "chat box" that is used for login purposes on xat.com/login e.g.

I disagree, // is used for urls to assume the base pages protocol, so the url would automatically work for both https and http, there is no inherent need to make them https:// directly.

The url should be flexible in the case that the site switches between https and http, things wont break due to mixed content errors.

Hmm alright, good to know. I thought // makes it http in every case. My bad.

(Sorry not used to talking to people on my level, from the german community, but you guys here partly seem to be even higher than my level LOL)
