User:DavidB4-bot/HTTPS URL update project

(originally moved from User talk:DavidB4)

The Web is changing a great deal. One of these changes is the shift from the HyperText Transfer Protocol to HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure. While HTTPS is not perfect (and it will continue to be less than ideal at least until/unless we get DNSSEC) this is a good move. The problem for us is that we now have a great deal of links which are out of date. 1990'sguy pointed out this issue and suggested that I use my bot to update our links. I don't have the ability to automatically test URLs for TLS support, so I'm making a list of URLs to be updated. Please add any links you want updated to the "New entries" section below, with one on each line in the page editor. Thank you!

URLsEdit

New entriesEdit

Please place new URLs to be updated here Note: don't worry about using break tags, so entries show on the same line. Just give each one a new line in the editor, and I'll do the rest.
encyclopediaofarkansas.net www.ruebelfuneralhome.com www.findagrave.com www.sos.arkansas.gov www.arkansas.gov forbes.com www.boxofficemojo.com

Failed verificationEdit

These do not seem to fully support HTTPS. They will probably be checked again, periodically.
https://www.snopes.com https://www.keynesatharvard.org (parital support, none enforced) https://clerk.house.gov (breaks some links, such as clerk.house.gov/evs/2010/roll638.xml) https://optionline.org https://legacy.lib.utexas.edu https://www.post-gazette.com https://www.silentnomoreawareness.org https://www.jpands.org https://www.theunchoice.com https://www.ewtn.com
