If you are logging in the forum from an untrusted connection (free wifi, or a wifi not owned/controlled by you) then you may prefer to use the secure connection to the forum:
https://zenhax.com

Both HTTP and HTTPS remain available:
  • If you are at your home: use HTTP (maybe faster) or HTTPS
  • If HTTPS gives you problems: use HTTP
  • If HTTPS doesn't work in a certain moment: temporary try HTTP
  • If you are in an Internet Cafe or other public places: use HTTPS

I would like your opinion about:
  • leaving everything as is now, so it's up to the user to use the http or https website
  • forcing the https website
What you would prefer and suggest?

Nowadays it's common practice to force https if available making impossible for an user to use the "old" unencrypted connection, but personally I think that leaving both would be better so the forum will be ever accessible in case of problems (old web browser or port 443 unreachable or problems on the https service).

Leaving both should be fine, let the user choose what they want to use. Perhaps make mention somewhere easily seen that the site offers https as well in case people miss it or don't see these update threads.

Added a note in the "Site description" and set this topic as "Global"

I agree, keep both options.
