Site Issues

Most will know of recent issues we have been having online with email notifications, unviewable posts, etc etc.
With Admin not responding over the last few days to requests I attempted to contact them direct at https://www.verticalscope.com/

The Verticalscope website is down. All I can see is a blank page with the message - Temporary Error, please retry

Please be patient.

Did and saw the same......very frustrating when we need help to be helpful. I cannot log into my Admin web portal because I am on a different IP address as in home, so I cannot log in until they verify that I'm not a spammer.

Verticalscope was acquired by Torstar a couple years ago. Check this link to Torstar's stock price. Hit max to view long term trend.

That is what I am thinking may be going on.
If correct all we can do is carry on with what we have and see what the future holds.
If wrong they will be back.

For what it's worth the Toronto Star (Torstar) has a controlling interest, 56%, in VerticalScope. Probably hedging their bets on print media. Sounds like they have been bleeding money though.

Yep, Torstar is drowning and VS is its cash cow. If Torstar goes to bankrupcy court VS will be sold off, not shut down.
