I have no idea how it works or how to do it, but can you make http:// automatically redirect to https:// when hitting regular http:// URLs? I usually access the site by typing "vgmd" in Chrome omnibar and then hitting down arrow + enter to hit the first cache result, which is vgmdb.net/forums/search.php?do=getnew. Or by typing "vgmdb.net search criteria" to automatically start a search.

I think most websites do this automatically because it's never anything I have to think about. For example, if I manually type "http://www.paypal.com", I get automatically redirected to https:. I assume websites have some sort of "you're using a client that supports https so we're going to serve that to you automatically" thing, but :shrug:
