Website Enhancements [October 2016]

Hello ARL Players,

There were a handful of upgrades added to the website over this week. Majority were back-end updates, but site viewers may notice some changes as well.


The first enhancement some users will notice is the implementation of HTTPS/TLS (TLS 1.1 and 1.2) throughout the site. If you have any issues accessing any area of the site: First, make sure you are using a modern web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc). Second, try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies. And third, make sure you have any available updates installed for your computer. Still having problems? Shoot me an email¬†explaining the problem and I’ll see what I can do.


The second enhancement is¬†push notifications. You will now be prompted to receive notifications the first time you access the site. If you aren’t, you can click the bell icon in the lower right corner to activate them manually. These notifications are compatible with most modern web browsers on both Desktop and Mobile:

  • Chrome: Supported on Windows, Android, Mac OS X, and Linux. Not supported on iOS.
  • Safari: Supported only on Mac OS X. Not supported on iOS.
  • Firefox: Supported on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Coming soon to Android devices.

Notifications are only pushed for new articles (and edits) so you don’t have to worry about getting bombarded.

Please let me know if you experience any issues with either of the new features.

See you on the ice!
