Mine does the same, but if you type https:// at the front of the address it goes away. Not sure why Chrome auto signs into the http:// version.

I also updated to https (using Chrome), but that blocked some youtube videos in posts?

I gave up and have gone back to the standard login.

Not Chrome. Really the server should force visitors to the https version. But, the site isn't fully secure on https, so that's not much good. Basically, some of the assets on some pages, like some of the images or gifs, are served over http. So even if you view the https version you still aren't secure on those pages and Chrome, and other browsers, will tell you as much. It's relatively easy to force https at the server level if you have the right access, which is probably the issue here.

Is it a problem? Well, strictly speaking since the BBS stores personal data such as names, email addresses, date of birth etc, legally it should really be secured. Practically though, if you don't mind then fair enough. I'd still recommend using different passwords for everything, and using a password manager to generate and store those passwords.

Your hosting people should also really disable SSL3 and TLS1 on the server, since they are possible attack vectors:

I have done that and I never type in a URL but I am regularly ending up out of https. Not quite sure how or why it happens.

Is there any indication yet of when this might be fixed?

Some links on the site direct away from https. If you click forums or home right at the top of the page it does this.
