Re: What's with Hungercity again?

I always try to reach and maintain a ratio of at least 2 as a personal thing,and donate to the trackers I use (except at the moment because I'm out of work), whether it's tracker policy or not,because I appreciate the fact that tapers and posters and seeders have made it possible for me to listen to this stuf.The thrill of hearing a concert I went to back in the eighties,posted by a guy in Scandinavia who's linked to my PC via another one in New York is magic to me,not technology.If I can get a show to someone else,so that THEY feel like that,then that is cool,and is what this is all about in my humble.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

I always ty to seed to at least the ratio I have or better. Here it's 1.9 other places 1.3 and some not so high as others did not want the shows. Those are still for the most part seeding tho if someone wants them. To me it's only polite to try and help others who might want the show as well.

What strikes me is the comment about the lack of thank yous. From my experience it is sadly an accurate statement. If I forget to do that I would be ashamed, but that's just me.

That being said, there are all kinds of folks and those who do not express there thanks and seed will remain. TTD can work through that and persevere for the folks that continue to make this a great place to grab some tunes and share our thoughts.

HUNGERCITY UPDATE - 27TH SEPTEMBER, 2013 (7:30PM EST)

Most of you will have seen this statement. As any rational person would expect, donations have not been good.

Shareefs situation gets more desperate yet he still has not wrote a single word in the Hungercity Forum or contacted the Hungercity staff team.

He is acting like someone who has lost all sense of reality.

Oh yes, as the last post states, THE PRICE HAS JUST GONE UP

---------------------------------------------------

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


DUE TO THE VERY POOR DONATIONS LEVEL, THERE WILL BE A DELAY IN GETTING BACK ONLINE! WE ONLY HAVE A FEW DAYS TO GET THIS SORTED OR WE LOSE ALL THE SITE FILES ETC!!
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP AND WANT TO SEE HUNGERCITY BACK, PLEASE DONATE NOW!! WITHOUT YOUR HELP IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE!!
INCLUDING THE RECONNECTION CHARGE, WE HAVE TO MAKE A PAYMENT OF $425 TO GET BACK ONLINE. ALL DEPENDS ON YOU GUYS NOW!


- SHAREEF

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Yesterday KGO AM radio in San Francisco dedicated the entire 3 hour Ronn Owens show to the Bay Area Food Banks. A $1.00 dollar donation buys $4.00 dollars of food for hungry people. Seems like a better donation to me at this time.

Shareef should sell t-shirts. He'd get the $$ in a flash!

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

"I donated to HungerCity for 3 years and all I got was this lousy T-shirt"

I think that would actually entice donations.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

May I suggest,that all HC memembers that are unhappy with the situation and have contributed in the last few months,make a complaint to paypal for the return of their money,all monies will then be frozen in the recipients account until a satisfactory explanation is received .If that explanation is not forth coming then donations will be refunded.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Everyone should of course complain to Paypal although they won't be entitled to a refund as they did not purchase anything "tangible". Paying for a service or making a fraudulent donation is not covered by Paypal's refund policy.

I called Paypal earlier today and made a complaint to their Fraud Department. If everybody else does the same then we might be able to stop this guy conning people out of their hard earned cash.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Wow, this is pretty sad. Hungercity has been around for a long time and it's sad to see it go under such bad circumstances. It reminds me of the demise of STG where we Mods were all trying to hold things together and Gray was nowhere to be found and so we really had no idea what was going on. When things are so dire, it isn't a good time for the site owner to go into hiding.

And $425 due just to get the site going for another month? Good luck with that. This site's server costs are about $150 a month and we just get by (no complaints from me as we are making the payments and we aren't here to make a profit!).
