HUNGERCITY UPDATE - 27TH JULY, 2013 (11:00AM EST)

AS MENTIONED MANY TIMES BEFORE, IF DONATIONS (WHICH PAYS FOR THE SERVER COSTS ETC) ARE NOT PAID IN FULL EACH MONTH, THE SERVER WILL BE TURNED OFF UNTIL PAYMENT HAS BEEN MET.

THE CHOICE IS NOW YOURS. IF YOU THINK, HUNGERCITY SHOULD NOT DIE SUCH A SAD DEATH, PLEASE DONATE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

AS THE DONATION PAGE CANNOT BE ACCESSED, PLEASE SEND ALL DONATIONS TO :

HUNGERCITY WILL BE UP AND RUNNING WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS

PEACE & LOVE TO ALL!

Uhm, excuse me. A child dying in a car crash is sad. A tracker paying too much for server costs each month, and it's members getting tired of constantly footing the bill, so it "dies", is not sad. It's inevitable.

Hopefully the members who so generously share their content at HC will find another venue (without the never-ending monthly donation solicitations) to continue the good work.

What's sad is folks like you, that have done so much to harm Hunger City, are so quick to dance on it's grave.

You will find that your dance is premature.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

I believe what vlad is saying is they were too greedy. it doesn't cost $400/month to run a tracker/dedicated server.
selling karma points is ..hmm, shall we say an interesting concept It seems many 'free trade sites' are aggressively hustling. 2

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

I'm not dancing. I uploaded 200+ videos there, and downloaded as many, if not more. Never tried to harm the site, but, like you arfarf, I would not give money to them. I enjoy donating $$ to TTD, because they never ask me to. And the monthly cost was $600+ dollars per month (not $400).

Just to be clear, I don't donate money to any site, because I have none to give, so lumping us together as to why we don't donate there is inaccurate.

You wouldn't give them money, I can't, two different things.

I'm surprised to see you say you "Never tried to harm the site." The mind boggles as to what harm you could have inflicted there had you really been trying.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

some people do not see the forrest for the trees and there is no sense trying to alert them. just a scientific fact.

They aren't dead yet aikowolf. According to the thread at Lossless Legs, HC will be back up "In a couple days".

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

sounds like petulant children, to me


I'm not aware of 'reconnect' charges for a web host being incurred when down less than 30 days or any days, really.


Either they are dumb and need a new host or they are crooked and lying in a pathetic attempt to extort money from the users. Fell free to post the 3rd possibility.


Generally, you need active hosting service to host that MS-Word extortion / money begging "notice" they posted. I don't know of any host who shuts you down but allows you use the server to beg for money. So, it seems they likely still have active hosting (funded by previous donations) and are using it to extort more money instead of running the site.
Had I previously donated, I'd be unhappy about that.

$600/mo?
