[QUOTE=amcfaggot;31390173]Get the fuck out. Seriously. Read the thread.[/QUOTE] Stop yelling at every fucking person who is mad that they lost their hosting service that they paid their own money for. You aren't the only person losing money because of this, so if your going to complain let others do it. It just makes you look arrogant and makes me feel less sorry for you.
[QUOTE=Killuah;31390300]Then why the fuck is there no employee contract and an insolvency operation?[/QUOTE] Everybody was too busy keeping that shit afloat to care about things like that, the only thing they had cared about were the clients. Before I had turned 18 in May, the company legally couldn't exist due to my inability to sign contracts and be a company founder. We were waiting until I turned 18 to register the company and get all the employee shit in line, but Matthew swiftly fired me a couple of days afterwards.

The reason he got pissed is because Killuah was saying things that were insanely over the edge on how none of us knew shit about what we were doing even though we were on top.
Thanks to the fact that BH is gone every decent Minecraft server you can find in GIP is gone. It is going to be hell for everyone to have to start from scratch if they didn't back up the maps locally. And even if they did it is going to be hell to lose all the progress that had been made on the maps.

How else could he be able to fire you? I'm not blaming you fully for this but you have to agree that you as the founder and the "employees" as a whole have part in the failure of this by letting someone else fuck it up that badly.
If you want to start a hosting company I'm willing to talk about a partnership :)
Oh jeez Garry just linked the thread on his twitter
That's nice. I paid off an overdue invoice with Brohoster & got to enjoy a whacking 2 days of uptime before the money went to waste. Edit: Relocating to LethalDrive ASAP.

He had control over the servers and honestly I didn't have the time nor the money to deal with his lawyers even if I tried to fight the fact that it was my company. You know how the US legal system goes.
[QUOTE=Killuah;31390425]Then did you fuck up something during the registration? How else could he be able to fire you?[/QUOTE] Matt registered it before Jacob was legally allowed, he essentially fired him on his fucking birthday when he became 18.
[QUOTE=garry;31390495]If you want to start a hosting company I'm willing to talk about a partnership :)[/QUOTE] who, me? or just people in general?
Pretty sure he is talking to you jake
nevermind he was talking about andrew
[QUOTE=JWJ;31390369] He's going to lose his house and his education, you're going to lose a server. Don't even try and make that comparison.[/QUOTE] Sorry but what. You don't bet your whole life on one job, that's insane.
ah well, i'll probably get 10x better performance hosting it off my laptop anyways
[QUOTE=Catdaemon;31390594]Sorry but what. You don't bet your whole life on one job, that's insane.[/QUOTE] generally people have one job and generally when you lose your job your house and other things are in danger
I hope you guys recover from this. [IMG]http://sae.tweek.us/static/images/emoticons/emot-sympathy.gif[/IMG]
I really don't want to be an asshole. I just want you guys to realize that the legal mumbo-jumbo is painfully boring and complicated but also necessary because I heard good stuff about BH when it started and I just don't want you to make the same mistake twice. I know that's your task in the end butthis thread made it look like "ah well it failed what can we do about it.. " Learn!

Good luck to everyone getting their money back, though I have a vague hunch that you won't. :(
Just tweeted notch and jens asking them to retweet. Lets see if they do.
[QUOTE=Was Scammed;31390361]3) You worked for them. I mean, I understand a job is a job, but if you guys knew this was so fucked up, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, or find a new job. Guilty by association. And you come here and tell numerous people to "fuck off." The ones who are paying for your "college tuition." But of course, you seem to only be worried about yourself. It's called Grants and Student Loans; get them, pay them off later. It's not hard. Again, what a piece of shit company. Bunch of thieves and greedy bastards.[/QUOTE] I'm not taking anything back, you can still get out, I'm more concerned with a few people who's lives are affected by shit decisions rather than your game server right now. Do you think with all the influence over the company that I had that I didn't try to do something multiple times? That the remaining good staff and good new staff didn't try? This is the type of shit that comes up when people don't know anything about what's going on besides bad PR. In other circumstances, I'd bend over fucking backwards to help you out and personally set aside time to restructure your loss, as well as do what I could to financially reimburse you, but right now, I don't work for Brohoster, former staff are affected, and I have bigger affairs to deal with rather than you losing a block sprite replicate of goatse. I'm not telling numerous people to fuck off, I'm here to tell people how it is, and how it was, and how it will be in the future. I'm telling [i]you[/i] to fuck off, because you're the type of scumbag we worked hours to days on end to help, and weren't even a real bro. It's called create a new world which you can generate in seconds and deal with it. Don't you fucking compare months of hard work to your pissy little server. And don't you fucking call our staff thieves and greedy bastards when you're only here to bitch about your less than 1 GB loss.

Oh come on what the fuck. I'm sick of this. I am absolutely sick to the back teeth of it. I don't care what little drama is happening between you 'businessmen' kids, I don't care about the angry facepunchers who love Jake's balls and think everyone should leave. I didn't leave brohoster because it worked, I am a [i]customer[/i] and all I want is a [i]working[/i] webhost. I'll really, [i]really[/i] be wanting to be able to get the EPP code for my domain soon. Sort it out. You're starting to look like spoilt little boys. Fucksake.

A lot of stuff went wrong after Brohoster was sold. This reminds me to that guy selling cheap logitech stuff.

[QUOTE=LordCrypto;31390703]Just tweeted notch and jens asking them to retweet. Lets see if they do.[/QUOTE] citricsquid, garry and some others have already done this, I see they are in conversation with Mojang employee @Kappische. It's going mainstream in 3... 2... 1...

[QUOTE=Killuah;31390678]Learn![/QUOTE] It is painfully boring, we totally understand that, but like I said earlier, this shit goes far back and is more complicated than what you see upfront. The business started with a few guys that wanted to create something chill. There was nothing to worry about back then, and no legal ramifications. Brohoster grew and acquired stretch marks.
