In many forums I've been a member of, and have visited throughout the years, any sort of breakdown or absense by the admin(s) would result in an overwhelming barrage of negativity from those who feel safe enough to criticize what they don't truly understand from behind their virtual wall of self indulgance and ignorance. In this forum, I've seen the opposite, where the topics and comments after this down time have resulted in many expressions of positivity, a vote of thanks and continued support for the admin. At the top of the page now are the words:
"I hope you forgive"
To which I say, of course we do, hoping I'm speaking here for the majority of us grateful users for the best nzb site on the web.
To OP: Everyone gets the blues from time to time, some to a greater and lesser degree than others. I hope that things do get better, and that you know that there are those out here who support you in every way we can, financially when able, and even more in the spirit of love and gratitude that can be given and received freely.
Thank you all!

Written better than I could have expressed it, so I'll just echo the same sentiment: "Of course."

Glad things are back up and running!

Agreed, mental health is so very important, far more important than any work or projects. If it's too much then you should indeed take a break or reassess what's important to you and prioritise your own health. No one has any right to criticize what so ever.

BFF, I have got my ten dollars worth and am thankful, but...

This site has been a roller coaster ride, I have complained in the past about the ups and downs and while I do try to sympathize with Prime I come here for content. How do you expect people to feel when it's down for a month at a time and we (hear nothing from the staff)? This site is automated, there's no sense of community because of that.

Commenting about the inconsistency and down time doesn't make people (haters) it shows there involved to an extent. But after all the ups and downs, how do you expect some people to feel and react?

The new chat is useless for most, and should be on this site not a separate one. I tried to use it to find out what was going on for the last down time and no one answered me, why? (because no one knew anything)! I would like this site to be a success but frankly Prime is mia to often and there's no other staff as far as I can tell.

You can't run the site like this and expect people to understand, It would be better at this point to just shut it down like I thought it was about three times now over the past few years.

It may be back, but slow, constant 503 errors, many groups nothing new ina ges (ebooks), TV HD misses most of the stuff people want - if these can be sorted, great, but it's next to useless at present.

This is the best usenet site out there hands down. The only one you can pick a year and rating and get movies above that line. No, I don't want all movies from 2016 rated 5 (who would! that's not even a real thing!) I want everything SINCE 2016 with a 5 OR HIGHER rating. UC is the only site doing this and for that I am extremely grateful, regardless of some minor hosting troubles. Keep up the great work it's appreciated by all your true fans (BFF for life!)

My vote goes with those above expressing support for OP's getting himself squared away and feeling better.

Can only shake my head in wry amusement at those who think their $10 contribution entitles them to someone on the other side of the world being at their beck and call 24/7/365 regardless.

Cheers, OP !

Thank you for all the support (even the negative-if such thing exists) on behalf of OptimusPrime. In an earlier post i mentioned already that his Spark was taken, but it has been returned safely. Never seen him on fire like he is now... support UC and we will return the favor.

I agree, for $10 you cannot expect a person to put their personal well being on hold and provide a 24 hour on demand media service for all your download needs. After spending 11 months in homeless shelters, this site was very useful in catching up on about 18 months worth of old episodes of my favorite TV shows, some in full 1080p high bitrate video and sound, some full blu ray 1080p seasons. The rest I find from torrent cloud servers, and TV blogs with links that I get download from using premium file hosts. I don't see this as a one stop shopping for all my video yet, (although I am sure you guys could make it so if you wanted), so I have subscriptions with many services and sources, there are months I spend between $90 - $120 to add between 25 - 30 Tb of TV to my personal collection since Feb 2017, and I couldn't have done it without this place to fill in the gaps where the others just had episodes nobody seeding the torrents, links at file lockers expired, data loss at cloud server torrent site lost hundreds of hours of my research and digging with losing 100s of Gigs of my stored files at a time where they were waiting for me to download them, but I'm getting it done. It beats giving the cable company $227 a month, and they don't give you everything you want either, and they will tell you go "f" yourself and have a nice day after.

I was diagnosed bipolar 1997, so I can understand if you need time to get your head right take it, I took time and quit jobs I really wanted badly and strived hard at, to do just that, and they were willing to let me go for doing so. And I did that, I left, they aren't worth it if they don't care about your own well being. Those employers screwed themselves for putting themselves in a position where they could not operate their business at peak capacity with me gone, and I was being taken advantage of that they were able to profit so well at the expense of my physical health and mind. I put in 14 -18 hour days 7 days a week for those people, my version of a "break" was 7 10 hour days when I could do laundry and put food in the fridge between work hours instead of catch 3-4 hours sleep, and none of them checked if I was ok after I spent 2-4 weeks in the hospital. They trusted me with hundreds of thousands of dollars of their money every day, I could have run off with it any time, and they didn't see me as anything more useful than a tool, like a hole punch or a stapler. No job is worth losing yourself over, especially this one, and this site still has enough to offer for the amount of time it is up. If it doesn't, find one that does. There isn't a lot of indexing going on with NZB right now, not sure why, should be a little more I think, but it's not all on Prime to make it happen himself. There's a list I found somewhere on Google with sites similar to this, no 2 are exactly the same, but I see $10 is not unusual to pay for a year of login to download the nzbs. For every TV show and movie in HD you can't find at one, usually one of the other ones will have it, or not, if you rely on pirated content for media, ebooks, movies, music, TV, you should be willing to diversify among many different sources. It's time consuming, that's why the ones who have it all charge a premium price for it. You really shouldn't expect much for $10 these days.

I was confused at times and did think UC was closed, but I kept checking back and was pleasantly surprised to see it back again after a few weeks of going dark last Spring, it was not long after I sent my first $10, hopefully not my last. Yes, Getting a message: "out sick, be back when able..., need some time, etc." would be nice, but I can personally attest to the fact when I get swallowed up by the dark part of my mind, reaching out to anyone in any way is unimaginable, no matter how small or how helpful it would be to them, and to my reputation as a responsible, thoughtful, and considerate person. The distortion I experience during those times is so severe I won't answer the phone to anyone, no matter how helpful they could be or how much they say they care. I know it's wrong, which makes the downward spiral that much worse.

If what this I'm talking about you just can't understand, it's totally unrelatable to you, don't feel bad. It' doesn't make you stupid, or unintelligent, or uncaring. It doesn't make me particularly any more defective than every one else is underneath the surface and veneer they wear to appear and feel accepted by the rest of the world. If you look close enough and deep enough everyone is flawed somewhere, and someone finds those flaws distasteful to varying degrees from where they stand more or less, it's just part of life.

I don't think I've had the pleasure [email protected] - admin, nice to meet you. And all the rest. I like the snow. I don't post in the forum often, so usually make up for it by being long winded when I do.

Happy New Year!

@ultranate
Thank you for your testimony and heart warming words. If the world was full of people like you it could potentially be a pleasant place to live. Anyways so glad to see that although the site hasn't been 100% up time your trust in
its service stayed the same or grown.
I am currently taking on some small tasks helping out OptimusPrime so he can concentrate on the technical side of this website, you can check out his tasks on "Issues" and see that he hasn't left nor abandoned the project nor died, also he does care to improve everything for your comfort and optimized service.

again cheers to all of you and

Smell you later.

This is exactly what happened to me. I was very aware of the problem, reached out to friends, stayed at a few for a bit but my mind of state just didn't change. I only saw big barriers. When Mega and myself started working on the smaller issues slowly i could start putting the big problems in order.

Thanks for sticking with us.
