    Is trifive.com DEAD? It seems that the company VerticalScope who owns it... is KILLING it...

    The prior enthusiast owner of trifive.com (Otis - who has been frequenting this site recently) sold the trifive.com site to a company Vertical Scope who has bought up every auto related enthusiast site they could the past few years, and thru their modifications to sell advertising, and eliminate functionality, are gradually killing them off! Most recently on the other site, it's now almost impossible to post photos ... and there are NO guidelines to what is allowed.. or NOT.... Just blank white space in place of the photos we post.

    This is an opportunity for Sid (the owner here) to gain subscribers, and also an opportunity to perhaps SELL partnerships? or ?? to help support this site as an independent site for enthusiasts!

    I haven't posted there since I think 2012 or 2013. I have over 12000 posts there. I recently tried to log on and couldn't do it. I sent a message to the admin asking what I had to do to get logged back on and never got a reply. It's probably the same assholes running it.

    It's no better this morning on the site still most photos only end up as a blue box with a ? mark in it.

    Last Weekend had to work on Site as Scammers found a way in through the back door
    This site use's V Bulletin 4.2.5 and its no Longer supported so to do any thing is very hard , with that said more money to step up to V Bulletin 6 .

    That's coming sooner than later.

    Thanks Sid

    Hello Gary ,

    That company VerticalScope Inc have contacted me 3 or 4 Times to Buy this site , With that said I will not sell it. I have been in Knife gate Valve Business Since I was 18 years old I'm 35 Now LMAO not really I will be 63 in October .
    I have have worked 4 Valve company's that where bought by bigger Corporate company None of the 4 have the same name as it was when I was there.
    One is completely shut down the other 3 are in Bad shape which is great for my company .
    I'm Open to most things the members would like to see on this Site .
    Thanks Sid
