Apparently stackstatus.net is being served over https using the tumblr certificated instead of it's own domain. I presume there should have its own certificated.

  • What do you mean by "there should have its own certificated"? Jan 27, 2017 at 16:58
  • @PeterMortensen change "there" for "here", it's an indicative of place. I presume in that place it should have its own certificated.

Tumblr does not support SSL certificates on custom domains:

You're currently using a custom domain name ("stackstatus.net"). That's cool, but we're not currently able to serve custom domains over SSL.

Given that this domain needs to stay 100% seperate from our existing infrastructure, there's no easy way for us to enable SSL for this domain at the moment.

We can't even go behind CloudFlare for this unfortunately. We will evaluate alternatives in the future.

  • Oh well, at least we tried :(

  • Would you mind enabling your diamond on MSE? I find it highly confusing when ordinary users answer these questions that accurate AND slam the status-declined on the question....

    Mark's been around here for years, @rene. Many adjectives have been used to describe him, and many adjectives fit... but I don't know that "ordinary" is among them.

    @rene as Shog alluded to, it's not my decision whether I get a diamond on MSE. The only reason I have one on serverfault.com is because I was an elected moderator there before I started working for Stack. The quick hover-over on my display profile should hopefully clear things up for anyone else who is confused in the future. Jan 26, 2017 at 20:03
  • @MarkHenderson yeah, I have had a few words with him in chat and I rest my case. Thanks for being on the team!

  • Note: as of the changes to the StackStatus website last year (as described in Improvements to site status and incident communication), the site is no longer hosted on Tumblr, and now uses HTTPS.
