For last week I have been getting a vbulletin message saying your request queued up when I try to log on to the hotlist forum. I’ve emailed info@firewhat but haven’t heard anything from them.

    Hearing rumors that the parent company for this site has filed for bankruptcy and that this site is down indefinitely. I am trying to find out more but even as a Hotlist Mod, I haven’t been told anything. Everything I have heard have been from previous “employees” on other social media sites.

    I’m getting bits and pieces however it “sounds” as if the site is down for good unless someone else picks it up. Not sure that is possible at this point. It’s a shame to lose such a valuable resource. Wish Original Ab would have kept it somehow. Wish they would put an informative type disclaimer at least on the domain letting everyone know what is going on and if the site will be back up again possibly in the future, but the things I’m hearing it doesn’t sound good.

    that’s an affirm guys, FireWhat is gone and the website is for sale. a few of us are in the know but no one told any of the Mods or anyone else what was going…people had to piece things together. only way the hotlist will be back up and running is if someone can afford to purchase it and run it on their own dime the the Abs did.

    JEEPERS!!! I suspect a lot of people would be willing to pay a small membership fee for the good this site has done. A valuable tool when there are fires all around us!

    We were being charged a fee with incident dashboard.

    And people are still being charged for after the hotlist was taken down.

    I got charged on one of credit cards this month for dashboard but reported it to the card company. Not paying for services not rendered.

    I hope somebody that knows what they are doing picks this up before things get going, which needs to be soon here in Cali. This one a main source of developing information for me.
