September 29, 2013

Dear Shareef:

Hungercity has been a home for many and has always had a good reputation for its audio and video torrents. Many people have given their enthusiasm, their energy , their time, their donations, and their music.

It is therefore with great regret that the staff of Hungercity unanimously came to the conclusion that we can no longer tolerate the way things are handled by the site owner.

1. There is no transparency about the real costs of the site. No Staff members have any knowledge of how much is donated or the site's financial resources, gains, losses or conditions.

2. People who have donated donít get credited. Staff members have been left to handle these requests when individual users bring proof of donations to the their attention.

3. Crucial knowledge about the site, such as usernames and passwords for access to PayPal data and domain servers are only in your own posession.

4. The site is unstable and is frequently offline for extended periods. Good back-ups are not always available, so posts and threads are lost as a result.

The staff requested a contingency plan in case you were unable to perform your duties. Staff just wanted to avoid the frequent site outages, maintain all backups to prevent loss of valued data, and remove any appearance of improper fund management. But you refused this request, thwarting the staff's efforts to provide friendly management and smooth operation of the site.

So, staff consensus is this: unless you may immediately inform us of the concrete steps being taken to resolve these issues, we have decided to end our involvement with HungerCity.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

this is why.

- no ratio enforcement
- no selling 'credits' of any type for 'donations'
- never, ever sell t-shirts

all that alters the vibe of the site and removes the fun

HUNGERCITY UPDATE - 30TH SEPTEMBER, 2013 (5:00PM EST)



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



THE SERVER PAYMENT TO THE HOST HAS BEEN MET. I WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THE HC SERVER WITHIN THE NEXT DAY OR SOONER. HC WILL BE UP AND RUNNING BY THURSDAY/FRIDAY.

THANKS TO ALL WHO STILL HAD FAITH WITH ME & HUNGERCITY. IT WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN. WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN YOU FIND OUT WHO ARE FRIENDS AND WHO ARE NOT. THIS WILL ALSO NOT BE FORGOTTEN OR FORGIVEN.

WE STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE OCTOBER SERVER BILL, AFTER WHICH WE WILL MOVE SERVERS TO A FAR MORE CHEAPER OPTION. BUT, ONE STEP AT A TIME!!!

IT WILL BE GOOD TO BE BACK SOON AND PROVE MANY SO CALLED FRIENDS WRONG!!

I'm just rushing down to the bank to take out a second mortgage on my house so I can afford to make a huge donation so he doesn't have to move the site to a cheaper server

ALSO, THOSE OF YOU ARE STILL WAITING FOR YOUR DONATION CREDITS TO BE PROCESSED, WILL RECEIVE DOUBLE VALUE TO WHATEVER YOUR CONTRIBUTION. THIS WILL BE DONE AT THE EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY, ONCE I HAVE SERVER/SITE ACCESS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED PATIENCE.

That's what I was thinking. I'm not sure I want to be involved, and I deffinatly don't want to deal the endless begging/demanding.
Thanks
Mike

Thumbs up Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Now I am an EX staff member of Hungercity it will remain to be seen if I also get banned from the site after the years of work and downloads I've given there.

Not too bothered, There is more than enough to interest me between here, Dime & PRLB

Nice ratio. If the site does continue, I hope they allow Hot Tuna torrents.

Yes. I know it's wrong, but I'm a sucker for schadenfreude.
