Can you assure us that no personal details will be handed over to VerticalScope?

I have been spammed by them, and if they are good at the technical side that is great because it can only be good for this forum, but I really hope this doesn't mean they get private information.

I have always trusted Harri and the admin/mods, so I hope this ends up for the best
Aside from the information that is in the database including the email you used to register, The DOB you used at registration, the IP address you used at registration there would be no other info I would have other than what you have already posted publicly. You are welcome to read out privacy policy here: http://www.verticalscope.com/privacy-statement.html
If you have any questions please feel free to either post here or send me a pm. If you are concerned about personal info related to your earlier donations to the site directly to Harri, we would not want or need any of this info.

Thank you, Harri. This forum has been unbelievably helpful to me as a late-blooming sax player, and I really feel like it is a community. Thank you for making it happen.

Wow, congrats on the decision, Harri! You've built a really amazing community here, and an incredibly valuable resource. I use it every day, and am grateful.

On that note, what would happen to the SOTW knowledge base should Verticalscope go out of business, or decide it's no longer profitable to maintain? Would everything just be deleted, or would it be made public domain, maybe even donated to the Library of Congress or a conservatory?

Thanks, Zoot:

Your question is something for Phil @VSadmin to address.

What's VS's motivation for keeping the site going? It's additional overhead, which means it could be on the chopping block at some point.

Harri,

It has been my pleasure to be part of this saxophone community for a long time. You are the reason for bringing so many saxophonists across the world together.

The deepest thank you's are not enough. I think we all trust your judgment, and we all look forward to you participating in more discussions across the forum.

Thank you Harri for creating a site that has been, and hopefully will continue to be, an incredible asset to the saxophone community. We are all indebted to you. Personally, you have been generous with your time to answer PMs, for which I am also truly grateful. All the very best!

Hello,

The URL used to be saxontheweb.net. Is it going to change to .com, as listed in your post?

Can we expect many more ads -- pop-ups, pop-unders, etc?
No pop ups or pop unders. If you stumble on such here make sure I am the first to know please. I would need to get the situation resolved and and ad partner network operators hand slapped.

Unlikely this info will ever disappear.

Also. I'm replying to most of these threads from my phone. Please do not take my short answers for being curt. It's difficult to manage multiple posts from a tiny screen with my thick fingers. I am certainly happy to elaborate on any questions you all have in the am when I have a normal keyboard at my disposal.

I hope you're right, Philip, but can you expand on why you say that? Is the SOTW site mirrored or archived somewhere, say on an open-access server that allows full content downloads? That would be one strategy for ensuring the information persists. Of course, archive.org might hold snapshots of the data at various moments, but it's not as reliable as a public mirror site.
