Things have changed?

Sadly, yes. While this service has been free from cost for everyone to use, sending messages isn't cheap. So far The Validation Station has been funded using a combination of personal savings, and the generosity of the two companies whose APIs we made use of: Vonage, and Twilio.

Funding from both of these sources has now run out, and while we look at how to keep the service running in the long term we've had to reduce service to one message per week.

We can't tell you how sad we are to not be able to deliver this service daily as we have been doing, but we'll let you all know once things are more certian.
