As a fan of the studio, and a gamer looking forward to BG3, I made an account here. Quite frankly I am pretty shocked by the sloppy security protocols implemented here.
I want to raise the following issues, ofcourse in the hopes that these will be fixed (and imo they should be!).
1) No https for the forums, seriously? I am on holiday in a less-than-privacy-friendly country, and my first thought was the govt was mass-MITMing public traffic. Imo this is below ANY standard.
2) Plaintext passwords in email? Are you kidding me? I don't think I need to explain this one.
3) Only 20 characters for the passwords? Should be expanded a LOT imo.
These things combined makes me think that the website might not have been kept up to date as well as should be.
And to think I only tried to register here to let my voice be known for a Linux version of BG3!
Pretty negative first post, I understand that but... I feel these issues had to be raised, and level up the website along with your game design!
I appreciate all the hard work you guys have put into your game(s) and would say, keep it up!
