In the words of one of the "founders" at HungerCity, "Dylan influences come as much from Duke Ellington as from Frank Sinatra... and of course all the pop music in this world is now related to Bob...isn't it?"

If you are looking for the wide variety of exceptional music HC once offered, you will be disappointed. If you are content to listen to, and collect only Bob Dylan. Hunger City is the place for you.

Re: Hungercity?

According to the PM I received-and probably the same one that everyone else received-only 20% of the funds needed for running costs of the month of July have been met. I'd be surprised if HC is around much longer...

Re: Hungercity?

Something is not right....90% of all torrents are recycled, one of the finest seeders at the site just deleted close to 100 torrents from the tracker http://www.hungercity.org/log.php
and even one of the Hunger City "founders" is coming here to bitch about our member's bad ratios (while HC sells ratio for donations). Members also received news that January bills must be payed before Christmas - or the place will shut it's doors. What about Johnny's red wagon, and Cindy's doll house?

Is this tied into the ABC News story "2012 End-of-the-World Countdown Based on Mayan Calendar Starts Today" ?

Merry Christmas?

Can't they pass the "Temporary Karma Point extension bill" before the winter recess? I mean, seriously...Christmas puts a pinch on most people's wallets.

** EXTRA KARMA POINTS ADDED SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS **
$10.00 Donated = 15.0GB + (400 Points) ---|--- $15.00 Donated = 25.0GB + (800 Points) ---|--- $20.00 Donated = 40.0GB + (1500 Points)
$30.00 Donated = 70.0GB + (2400 Points) ---|--- $40.00 Donated = 100.0GB + (3500 Points) ---|--- $50.00 Donated = 150.0GB + (5200 Points)
$80.00 Donated =300.0GB + (7000 Points) ---|--- $100.00 Donated = 400.0GB + (12000 Points)
