    Default Hungercity tracker "gone"

    hi all,
    as an admin over on Hungercity, until last week, it is my sad duty to inform you of the following:
    right now the site is down, supposedly because not enough donations were made. this is hard for us, the staff to believe, therefore we all resigned.
    below our general message to the outside world

    HungerCity Staff
    September 30, 2013

    Friends

    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 don't get credited by the site owner. Staff members have been left to handle these requests when individual users bring proof of donations to their attention.
    3. Crucial knowledge about the site, such as usernames and passwords for access to PayPal data and domain servers are in the hand of just one person: the site owner.
    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 if the site owner was unable to perform his usual duties. Staff wanted to avoid the frequent site outages, maintain all backups to prevent loss of valued data, and remove any appearance of improper fund management. This request was denied, thwarting the Staff efforts to provide friendly management and smooth operation of the site.

    So, we have decided to end our involvement with HungerCity.

    I've not been a member at HC all that long,but long enough to wonder about the outages/donations situation,and I've been following the whole saga at TTD.
    Thanks to you and the other guys for making a stand and doing the right thing.

    Shareef is the owners' nick.
    i just feel sorry for the people that paid and got no credit for it, even though such is promised by the owner. Feels like a rip off to me.

    Thanks, Pottel, to you and your colleagues. I enjoyed the site. Let's hope the community rallies around you guys and gets a real community site up and running.

    Yeah, but not that one which is run by a particularly cretinous ex-salesman.
