    Waffles.ch News

    From a a Waffles Admin:

    OK. here, finally is the story. Waffles went down for financial reasons, and stayed down due to staff issues that will not be hashed in public, don't bother asking. Lack of communication was because of the staff element, I was hoping the downtime would last a day or two at most at the beginning, but that obviously isn't what happened. This happened at a really inopportune time, we were just as surprised at what happened since we went down as you were.

    We've changed hosts to get a situation that is within our current means. We still owe a debt to the old host that will need payment, and we still need money to pay it. Because we're changing hosts (and equipment), we don't know how long it will take before we are able to come back up. But I will make sure our twitter and this space are updated with news as it comes, particularly if an ETA arrives.

    Some answers to frequently asked questions: No, we're not adopting gazelle. The amount of development time it would take to do that is not available. For now, things will be as they were when we went down.

    No data appears to be lost, we have the site code as it was when we went offline.

    We're keeping the current invite policy in place when we reopen. We recruit at a couple of private torrent sites, plus invites are open. So will we offer something more liberal? That depends on what we find our current capacity to be after we get set up.

    That's all for now. Let's hope the migration goes simple and easy.

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

    On the site's main page, you can see right now an image titled: "Just moving things around a bit, back soon!", followed by a Bitcoin address apparently.

    I have just noticed something, that waffles staffers should fix ASAP if they really want to collect even more donations.

    The httpS link (https://waffles.ch/) is not working, so users can't even see their BTC address to donate. Actually most users have saved the httpS link, they are probably checking this link every now and then and they have no idea about waffles' plan to come back since it looks down...

    On the other hand the http link (http://waffles.ch/) is working fine but i don't think it's that useful...

    Come on guys. Fix it

    Well they already said in the announcement that they are not going to migrate to gazelle. If their server capacity and bandwidth can handle the influx of new torrents and users i would say why not?
    At least the staff is far better that some other and they don't scrutinize every single signup as if it's the FBI and NSA combined landing on their roof with black helicopters
    Oh wait....

    So my question that seemed to be fuzzy from the Waffles News in this article, are the old members of the site still going to be intact? Or is it going to be a whole new member and everyone needs to sign back up?

    I think the old user existing accounts should still remain in place I see no reason for them to get rid of their existing user base but who knows
