Too Hard? what do you guys think?
What does auctioning ohpeewon mean? Like, he’s literally auctioning the domain name somehow?
I already like the new forum better, but that precious data! Would be a damn shame to let all that go. Don’t know how someone in their good conscious could let all that info die.
yeah. he has made the choice to auction it. seems like a sad to think that’s how it went. I called godaddy to ask what was up and they explained he secured the domain name and put it up for auction.
I even asked if I paid a $1000 the base asking price would he give me the old data, and he never responded.
Wow that blows hard! Maybe he’s not in the right frame of mind…
Really weird! Why would he do that? I still want to think that this is some kind of misunderstanding. Or then he’s got some serious financial troubles.
Given that JP isn’t responding to anyone, he is either:
@KrisM godaddy expressed he made the auction… so 3 seem less likely unless the lie…
I am guessing think $$$ and not with his brain… but call me a skeptic…. but man $1000 with the data… what a value return…
really wish I knew wtf hackers were doing >.> lol… I’d be all “look what I found. Don’t ask.”
well let’s see how he reacts… right not i guess fail! but I want to be wrong.
The domain name in itself has no value. “ohpeewon”… It’s worthless. It’s the user base that has value. If we’re migrating here, then this forum is already more valuable.
Yeah, I am just new here but already I think the forum is great. Oh by the way, Hi cuckoo! I love your youtube channel and your videos helped inspireme to buy the OP-1. No regrets!
I was under the impression that someone here had JP’s phone number… if that is the case, it wouldn’t hurt trying to call him to try to clarify what is going on.
He also seems very active in monome community. I sent him a private message on monome forum. We’ll see if that works. Although it seems that he last visited that in Dec. 2013…
Dimi, thx for all the work!
to harsh in my opinion. he ran it all the years for free - so he doesn’t owe anyone. dissappointing that he got offered help and support and then let it go down the drain, yes - but still… no obligations
what I’d be curious about is what happens with the user data when auctioned?.. are there 12k + email addresses now for sale?
PMs from people selling/trading gear with their private contact data?.. i sure hope not
^ haha good point. fresh start!
