    Our Stock Trader game depends on getting information via Yahoo! It appears Yahoo! has changed something which has broken that connection.

    I'm going to need to shut it down until I can find a fix IF I can find a fix. I recommend everyone playing to sell everything as I think your moolah may be lost if I shut it down.

    I'll give everyone until next Wednesday, Nov 15, until I shut it down.

    It may be a done issue. Can't get in to sell or even look at the page.

    I guess I'll just have to make a bunch of posts to make back some moolah. lol.

    Welp, contacted the author and there's no fix. If I can get in and see everyone's invested moolah, I can replenish.

    As far as I knew the stock trader died 4 years ago, so this affects me zero

    I make my moolah on posts, sportsbook, bets vs vondy, and Thaky meltdowns...

    The author of that add-on says there is no way to know how much everyone has in the game. He did say he is working on a way to find out the original amount put in.

    Basically, Verizon bought Yahoo! and shut down use of their stock feed.

    I'll know more soon and keep everyone updated.

    So did people who use this feature lose all their moolah they had invested?
