Re: What's with Hungercity again?

As Stafmember of HC i do strongly advise everybody NOT TO DONATE at this point.

There is indeed a (small) chance that the site is hacked , but more likely seems that there is a swindle going on.

This is a very sad day for me, I have put a lot of time into that place over the years as have other staff members but I can't sit by and watch people being ripped off like this.

Loyalty is one thing, honesty is another. You can do as you will but you have been advised

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

We recently updated at Planet Rock, couple burps all sorted out. It's never good when a site has one owner who controls all and reveals little or nothing. It breeds speculation and it's just not right to keep your staff in the dark. They are the frontline and bear the brunt of the questions. "I don't know" is the worst possible response to a business customer, and donators have a right to know their $ goes where it's purported to.
As Nutz and LGT and Kixdude are friends and good people, when they throw up a red flag, I gotta believe somethings not kosher. It sure seems like HC's host service fees are WAY out of line. I'd like to see proof and an explanation.

And Daddyray, be more specific please. As in searching Forums? Posts? Torrents? Our layout is pretty similar to this one, same forum app [Vbulletin] just a newer version. I've never received this complaint so I'm curious to know what your issue is.

Seems easy enough for me too. I wish the variety of content was wider, but they have always been very fair about the way they allow, and encourage input. It is also a very good, and strong community. I hope the folks from HC discover PR and continue to share there if they haven't already. A work in progress is better than no work at all.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Life support is better than no support. Despite the obvious problems, HungerCity was as exciting and unique as it gets for traders. I will sorely miss it.

What I miss is your videos.
Seriously, that's what I liked most over there. There were a few other guys too.
Thanks

I agree. There was a lot of stuff at HC that you could find here or on dime, but there was some really great stuff there that you couldn't find anywhere else. Things may have ended badly for HC but I'll always remember it fondly.
