mixxt social network = ridiculous

As mixxt was suggested as an opportunity for the Webmontag to use it for social networking I looked at it. And I found that it does not even meet some minimum requirement. This one minimum requirement for a social network from my view is TLS support. You can not expect users to log in via an unencrypted connection, really? Go and do your homework!

    wir benutzen mixxt seit einiger Zeit für ein sehr kleines Projekt — mit https.

    Wie kommst Du auf die Idee, mixxt.de böte kein SSL/TLS?

  2. http://mixxt.de/, the form contains a link to /users/login” – there is no indication that there is TLS. Also the certificate on https:// is only self-signed: “The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed.
    The certificate is only valid for Philipp Ellenbeck” – also I found no hint for TLS anyhere in nix and neither when searching for tls and mixxt on Google.
