Admins! Wake Up! Your Video Page Has Been Broken For MONTHS!!!

I know for a fact that it has been brought to the attention of the "web developers" for this site that the Video page is broken. Videos haven't been able to be uploaded in a playable format since NOVEMBER 2016 yet it continues to remain in disrepair. They've even been told what the issue is specifically yet do nothing.

Funny how most of us PAY for the use of this site and it's handicap service yet we can't utilize it all as the codes are so outdated they need carbon dating to find their age.

WAKE UP AND FIX YOUR PAGES! Yes PAGES! You used to give us activity points to put towards purchases in the now non-existent store that was to be re-vamped YEARS ago. You then started a games page which still has a link to it but surprise, surprise! It doesn't work either. Now your videos page has been down literally for MONTHS, you KNOW it's broken and do nothing about it yet you still have the balls to charge us for a handicap and let everything else go into disrepair. SHAME ON YOU! You have a tournament page that hasn't had a tournament in 2 years! I'm sure there's many other things that have been left to rust on this site that I'm missing.

I expect the forums section to go down in the near future so I'll say my goodbyes now to anyone that I don't have email or cell phone information for that uses this site.

It's sad that the admins have essentially developed a site and left it on cruise control to drive over a cliff of ancient technology. The day is coming when you no longer will have a handicap here even though you paid for it. As it is, most tournaments don't even recognize it now!

Sad, sad, sad...

Less of Vince's swing is actually a good thing

I kid, but I know you and I have talked a bit about this. Unfortunately, there is no indication that things will change from the folks who own the site/service.

What I've found is that if you don't actively develop and update a service/site, that it falls so behind in tech and disrepair that it is a major expense and quite an involved project to bring it up to .. par .. From the responses I've received, it sounds like they have an outsourced tech/development co so they pay by hour or fix and don't have full time employees (or.. you'd see stuff get fixed in a day or so). I may be wrong.

My fear is that eventually the IIS services they run on will become EOL and they either update which could break the legacy code or leave it on an old unsupported and un-patched version of IIS opening itself up to vulnerabilities.

Some indication of what the future of USHandicap is going to be would help, but I don't think that the owners share too much.

Too bad, it's been a great place for me to hang out and I'll be here as long as the server responds ;)

Videos must be uploaded in the .vhs format.

On a related note to this issue, is there an easy way to export scoring data from this site?

Looks like they got the message on videos. They've been working hard at correcting...NOTHING!
