Well, there is this other thread in the same forum right at the top: What's with Hungercity again? (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=55260)

Is it time for HungerCity to get their own forum here at the Den?

How 'bout a stick thread? Surely they rate having their own sticky somewhere in here.

A place where after a hard day at the Den, we can kick back, enjoy a couple of cold ones, share war stories etc. Kind of like the Amercan Airlines Admiral's Club...you are a true visionary!:clap:

Hi, this is only a technical question by a stretch, but it's
a real concern and I'm sure you can help.
I find myself unable to get onto Hungercity although I've been registered
and in good standing for a good long time. I'm supposed to contact
the owners/administraters "by pm" with "any concerns" but I have no idea what that means.

Is this a blind and are they in fact closed down? otherwise, just tell me what
they mean by "by pm" and I'll talk to them directly. thanks as usual

"pm" is "private message"; i.e. email them.

landesm
2008-05-26, 11:17 AM
Thanks,
but, since I'm not in, how do I do that? I figure admin@<hidden>
is a good bet, but do you have better info? thanks. M:wave:

Hungercity is up and running.

It seems strange that if you are having problems connecting that you are supposed to PM a moderator. If you can't get onto the site, you can't get to the Staff List to click on a link to PM someone. Unfortunately, I can find no email listed for them. Perhaps once you are able to get back onto the site, you can bring this up with them.

Yeah,
I seem to be screwed. I've been trying to get back on for months to no avail.
At one point, if I tried to re-register I was flagged that the account already existed, yet if I tried to log on I was rejected!
At present I try to re-register and it says it will send confirmation and doesn't.
Or I try the I-forgot-my-password option and again it says it has sent
the info to my address and....doesn't.

But this trading community is so friendly it's impossible to get upset even
when things go this wrong. Maybe someone else out there can connect me
to those guys. m :wave:

I'll get in touch with them for you. They are still experiencing some issues...I'm seeding and downloading there so it's no biggie. Hang in there.

2008-05-27, 03:16 PM
Thanks so much.
Just as I said, there's always someone out there ready to
help. I'll let you know in a couple of days if I've heard from them.
thanks again.

I tried logging in once and was rejected.

I sent the admin a rare video a year ago to transfer. Never got the video back and the DVD was never uploaded. From now on I will have to take care of that kind of stuff myself even if I can't take care of it myself.

Hi again, vladsmyth
It's been 48 hours since you wrote the above. And I haven't heard from
them yet. Is it too early to be puzzled? I really don't have a strong sense
of how long to wait before contacting them, through you, again. I'll leave it to you.
Could you contact admin again and see if they've attempted to reach me?
:wave:m:wave:
thanks again.

I can access it, and download, but I cannot upload.

Karma points are working fine, my upload stats seem fine also.

Nice two disc Pink Floyd DVD just upped:

They still have issues but are working to resolve them I guess.

Where were you when all this trouble at HC started, James?

Hmmmmm??????

Thanks for the update tgunn.
So, I won't even give HC a thought until, say, Wed. of next week.
thanks again.

I think the stats are only since the site came back up. Or else it's like that for me because I joined recently and I had to create a new account after they restored the site this last time.

I'd like to hear what happened when they got hacked before. I've heard references to it but not the whole story.

Don't know the whole story, just that they were hacked.

Hey guys,
Well, I really am gratified that I generated all this palaver. :wave:

However, strangely, my situation remains.
I registered anew yesterday and was told that confirmation was being sent
to my email address.
........as has been the case for weeks, it never arrived.
I was encouraged that when I tried to register anew once again, today,
I was flagged that "that" email address was already in use. Good!
Only...........confirmation still doesn't get to my address.
Could one of you guys inside contact an administrator for me?
It's early I guess and I'm far from disgruntled, but on the other hand.....

I'd appreciate it. :wave:
m
p.s. Jamesky. Should I recognize the brunette next to your name?
a very tame innocent little picture to be sure, but that little motion
has tatooed her on my brain. strange. I guess that's a complement,
but....... I'm not sure.

direwolf-pgh

go create an new free email address somewhere and try again.

Yes, the confirmations were piling up in my junk mail.
Thanks.:wave:

and yes, I hereby acknowledge that I'm too thick headed to deserve

and no I'm not going anywhere. If nothing else I can serve as a reminder
to everyone else how smart they are....I can live with that.:wave:

I checked several time last night, as well as this morning, and all I got was the error message that server couldn't be located. They did say that they had some updated ?artwork? site look update, something to that effect so they may be doing that. You would think that they would at least leave the inbox open, or send a e-mail, notifying members of that.

It looks like it is still having problems. The peers table is probably a Memory type and so everytime they restart mysql, it gets zapped. As long as the torrents are working in your client, just let it be and I'm sure they'll figure out what is up.

vladsmythe
