Title: What's happened to GL Stock (Graphicleftovers)???
Post by: KuriousKat on February 08, 2014, 14:01
Can't get in but apparently I can buy the Domain needs to be renewed.

That doesn't look good…. :(

Hope it's just an oversight that will be rectified soon. I rather like GL Stock, and would hate to see them go down.

it looks like they shut down the stock and run with the money... all unpaid revenues... lots of lots of unpaid revenues

I hope that's not the case. It could just be an oversight that will be rectified first thing Monday  :)

I think their domain is currently supposed to be glstockimages.com, and the old graphicleftovers.com was just forwarding to the that domain, but something went wrong in DNS when the old domain expired yesterday.

Can't imagine they've simply shut down.

If they did it would just be my luck.  I requested a payout on Thursday.

Still unavailable in Minneapolis which tends to confirm a DNS issue.  Should clear itself before too long.

But... you just said you could access the site...?

It was cached- once I cleaned my cached it no longer comes up. I am having my webmaster check it out now. He specializes in Computer Forensics for the FBI thus should be able to tell me what happen.  If they did go I am disappointed in Kelly (GL Owner) not telling us a head of time.   We really supported this company even if the sales were weak with the exception of Mr Locke (big sales).  ;)

I checked their twitter feed - nothing since the end of January.  Hmmm.
But surely, the domain expiring yesterday can't be just a coincidence.  I'm betting this is a hosting problem.

I posted on their Facebook page that they had webiste problems and please get in touch with contributors here or by e-mail.

Things have clearly not been going well for them although I had a couple of sales this month, so I was hoping things might be turning around. They owe me $20, so it's not the end of the world, but I do think they should pay contributors if they are wrapping up.

I see no reason to assume the worst. Hopefully, it gets resolved soon though.

I would have thought if they were doing maintenance or a dns switch they'd have posted a nitification at least, it just feels a little suss but hopefully it will be ok.

FB page also shows no activity since end of January.    Maybe just someone on vacation for a week...

I'm sure Kelly is on the job.  Just yesterday I bought an image and it was emailed to me because they were having issues creating small and medium versions.

Thanks for posting, Sean.  I know you know these guys better than most of us, and I was hoping you would weigh in.  :)

we are in the world of anarchy and old midwives tales.
maybe I should begin to sell barrels of salted herrings?

It amazes me how volatile the world of business is on the net.

meaning. Do we have a domain and adress or not, who are the owners and what do they sell? The basics are not in order.

Hi everyone,

We are so sorry for the downtime! We had some DNS issues causing the site not to appear this afternoon. It has been resolved and the site is now available. Everything is just fine...not to worry! Kelly

That's good news. GL is one of my favorite underdogs.
