Did Hoopstick die from swine flu?

by Michael Arrogant on May 28, 2009 · 5 comments

While the main Hoopstick site optimistically says “HoopStick is taking a break. We’ll see you when we’re out of beta,” the beta site says “Be back soon! We are down for routine maintenance. We are performing a routine upgrade to make your HoopStick experience the best it can be. We will be back up just as quick as we can. Thank you for your understanding.”

What’s going on HoopStick?  How long does a routine maintenance have to last before its no longer routine? My earlier review and forecast predicted this service would be dead within 12 months.  Looks like it may have taken less than half that to join the dead pool.

I’m wondering that as well. Everything I ordered from them showed up in a reasonable amount of time and was exactly what they said for a good price so hoping they’ll be back.

While they were up, I did pay attention to them. I was never impressed with them – I’m a Woot! follower.

I did notice that Hoopstick had their t-shirts (that advertised their web site, the only think I ever bought on Hoopstick) for sale once toward the beginning and then again toward the end. (though then we didn’t know the end was coming) Think they sold them the second time just to get rid of the stock before they closed for business? Hmm…

WTF is with your site? 07.10.09 at 7:25 pm

Why are you posting every three months? Are you in prison?

How much to sell your site? 07.28.09 at 3:30 pm

Hey Comick Book kid:

No joke. For real. How much to purchase your entire site. I want to go after Arrington.

Let me know. Otherwise I’m starting my own in the next week for Sept. launch.

I simply agree with you.
