Well, I'm sure now the individuals running the operation have decided to be honest, communicate openly both with their staff and community, and most importantly, accept criticism and build on it instead of throwing a temper tantrum, but... oh come on, I can't even finish typing this with a straight face.



I worked as a community manager for 2 years. I know exactly what's in store for whatever poor souls are going to be running the show for the very short time it exists this time around. Anyone who uses the platform after all that has transpired deserves whatever happens next at this point.

Coming soon: TS Error!

Thanks Spiderfan, I needed a good laugh.

No that would be too clever on their part. Instead Jerkface deleted everything after this post was written. Of course the other posts have been archived here, but he's trying to re-write history as it may.

Can somebody post my video to their FB page, please? I'm curious to see what their response is.

That IS me. I didn't formally resign until May 4th. Remember, at the time I was simply leaving the team as I could no longer work under the conditions we'd been forced under by a rather deluded but presently unnamed individual. This may jog your memory, though I know it's inaccessible, as I recall someone shuttered the entire forums rather than accept any criticism.



Also, thanks to the power of remembering how things worked, here's a "preview" of what you have to look forward to, in my humblest opinion:



I agree with Alisson, this is going to be fun to watch.

Luckily, there are going to be a few competitors for ZC and with all the drama Jerkface caused it will be interesting to see how ZC compares.

I remember that and when it didn't do that the buffering was legendarily awful.

Speaking of the infamous ts error check this post out from the ZC facebook page.

I'm sure it won't be based on the open source HTML-5 technology we used at MetaJolt. Surely!

Don't. I tried that and got burned. The only reason to possibly return to ZC is if Jerkface sold the site to someone else, which at this point we have no idea.

What did Louis do to you?

7th times the charm eh Zain? Well, I wish you good luck, but seeing as this last closure was simply because someone threw a temper tantrum, I can't imagine the place will run for long. Good luck all the same though.

I believe the 6th time was that too. "ZippCast is shit and I'm closing this book chapter on my life.... forever.... for real.... I'm not coming back or anything..."

The 4th and 5th times were "babies," I wonder how many does Louis have by now.

Well then, let's see where this trainwreck takes us.

I was under the impression ZippCast closed because its operating costs were in excess of $30,000 a year, owner had no time for family and friends, owner didn't feel the community should benefit of all the flawless services for free, owner was annoyed at staff for trying to contact him when site was down and needed administrator privileges, owner didn't like the fact a 17 year old coder was programming circles around him, owner couldn't understand why the community got tired of buffering and TS errors on the shitty player and finally, the straw that broke the Italian camel's back was when he realized the main staff members that basically kept ZippCast alive would no longer kiss the King's royal ass anymore. All that's going to change in this new launch

Trying to contain myself.
