Did you notice the "News and Bits" section on the Main Menu page (right after
logging in)? "News", right? The last real post there dates back from 2011. In
2012 - just HC's birthday celebration. Then - nothing. I think this is very
telling. HC is like an abandoned ship, captain, most of the crew and most
travelers have left long time ago. Those who stayed don't have the tools to
maintain the vessel. More and more things are braking (code!), more and more
elements are getting dysfunctional. It's only a matter of time and the
log-in-code will brake. The ship will sink.
Most left to other websites like Be Welcome, Warm Showers or (who doesn't care
about transparency, non-profit nor data-protection) Couch Surfing. And there are
more sites like this. Honestly, I wonder why one should wish to rescue HC? It
would take a lot of work to do so - and what for? What this site would give the
others don't offer? I did not delete my profile here for two reasons: nostalgia
and ... well, it's not really possible to delete the profile, since some of the
voluntares should hit the final delete button. Are there any left?
Best wishes from Istanbul (eh, yes, changing your address takes time -
voluntares have to do the final click...).
