How clever... and discouraging. I was following the links presented to me in order to learn more, so I went to the Training page, hoping to learn about training. The mostly-empty page included this message:
"You have at least 100 Assurance Points, if you want to become an assurer try the Assurer Challenge!"
Wanting to learn more about the Assurer Challenge, I clicked on that link. You have fooled me, I'm now in the challenge without even knowing it! I am NOT amused. A link to http://wiki.cacert.org/AssurerChallenge would have been MUCH more helpful. I am now treading carefully through that document.
|Steps To Reproduce||I logged on to www.cacert.org via Password, and arrived at|
I clicked the "CAcert Web of Trust" menu item, which included a link saying "Training" and arrived at
That page included this message:
You have at least 100 Assurance Points, if you want to become an assurer try the Assurer Challenge!
The words "Assurer Challenge" were a link to https://cats.cacert.org/
As you probably know, that site requires a Client Certificate in order to establish the necessary SSL connection. My suggestion is that this link go to the Wiki page http://wiki.cacert.org/AssurerChallenge
Similarly, the "CAcert Web of Trust" menu item which says "Assure Someone" goes to
This page also has a link saying "Assurer Challenge" which goes to https://cats.cacert.org/ so it is also unusable without a Client Certificate. Again, I think this should be a link to the Wiki.
Thank you for looking into this!
