An important update from the WSN team:
WisSports.net has served high school sports fans in Wisconsin for more than 20 years as the go-to resource scores, stats, standings, statewide leaders, news, analysis, and much more. Over that time we've gone through many changes, from different parent companies to different platforms to new design looks.
It's time for another change at WSN, as beginning today we will migrate our very popular WSN Extra subscription content over to a new home.
You can find WSN Extra content going forward at www.extra.wissports.net.
We have utilized the SportsEngine platform for both written content and league management information (rosters, schedules, scores, etc) since we were acquired by the company in 2012. It has been an excellent system to manage all of our information, even after we joined initially the VNN family and now as part of PlayOn, GoFan, and VNN/rSchoolToday.
However, SportsEngine has updated its back-end tools and will no longer support recurring subscriptions and paywalls, meaning we can no longer run our WSN Extra service on the platform.
What does this mean for you, the users?
Because we are going from one platform to another, for security and privacy reasons, we are not able to directly migrate user data from our legacy WSN Extra subscription system to our new system. This means we cannot bring over usernames, passwords, payment information, renewal data, etc.
We know this is not an ideal situation, but it is what we will work to make the best of it within the requirements we have.
We understand this process will cause some disruptions for our existing subscribers and will result in questions from our users. We will continue to do everything we can to minimize the interruptions, allow a smooth transition, and continue to provide high-quality original content that you have come to know and trust from our dedicated staff at WisSports.net.
We do not take this process lightly and would not be doing so if we were not required as a result of the changes from SportsEngine.
We thank you for your continued patronage of WisSports.net.
Sincerely and respectfully,
Travis Wilson, General Manager & Football Writer
