    I am having a hell of a time with this forum. Of course I just upgrade to the gold membership and its screwing up. I get SSL errors in 3 different browsers. Then I can log in with chrome but it fails to let my posts through.
    I remoted in to my work computer and had similar problems. I was finally able to reply to a response to my buy and sell add and now I'll try to post this.

    Seems like I can now post from my work computer in the office but my home computer is still getting "Your connection is not private, attackers might be trying to steal your information".
    I am able to log on to everything else. Facebook, 2 other guitar forums, email, etc. Only this site is giving me a problem.

    I had the same problem yesterday logging in. No hardware or account changes here, so it seems some trouble at the mother ship.

    This crap is just pissing me off totally.

    I can log in on 3 different computers but none of them can I view my or anyone else's pic attachments. Only this one seems to be letting me post.

    While waiting for admins to fricking fix the certificate problem again (this is unbelievable from a company those business is to run forums and websites, fricking unbelievable!), try this:

    Use: https://guitarscanada.com/

    DO NOT USE: https://www.guitarscanada.com/ (the certificate is broken yet again for WWW. version. And they were fricking warned that they didn’t fix it fricking properly the last fricking time)

    Actually, to be “fair”, it is not the same problem with cert as last time, it is this:

    I couldn't login from my MacBook but my iPad and Windows computer were fine. I cleared the history in Safari and now the MacBook is fine.

    I contacted VerticalScope’s CTO on LinkedIn. The www. cert issue appears to be fixed now. Various caching may continue to cause trouble for a little while.

    They are not off the hook yet. Chrome and Firefox are broken for posting on Windows and Mac platforms. Internet Explorer, Edge, Tapatalk, Safari, and iOS Chrome seem to work.

    I haven’t got any email notifications for 2 months. I have to revert back to old notifications to get on the board. I checked my settings and everything is honky dory! Idk what’s happening.

    Well hopefully that's been fixed now. Was fixed for me over the weekend

    This should send you an alert as long as you are subscribed, and I'll send a message to you as well
