Cosas con las que me encuentro

Sad day. Project CGHUB is officially closed

This was a surprise for me, I don’t know about any of you but this is one of the sites I frequent looking for cool things to share and it seems to be closed down for good.

Communicate of the development team:

The reason behind this extremely tough decision is personal and will remain private. It’s absolutely not connected with business or any kind of technical difficulties. 
On behalf of development team I would like to apologize to CGHUB users and fans for abrupt project closure and delay with its announcement. 

CGHUB wasn’t ideal, but we loved it SO MUCH! :*(

Team Shakuro 

After an understandable negative reaction by the community they released another one:

We are getting tons of emails and from the comments to our recent post we think that we need to clarify some things and answer the most common questions.

1. Team Shakuro was NOT associated with Full Spectrum Digital, LLC - a company that ran CGHUB.com. We were actually only responsible for development and of course were not authorized to make decisions like shutting the project down. That also means that we were not making money from ads, pro accounts and so on. 

However, since the real owners prefer to keep low profiles we are the only ones on the surface (to blame).

2. We were caught completely unprepared. It was as simple as: “Guys, it’s over”. 
Why the shutdown was like this and without prior notification – we have no answer to this question and that’s also beyond our understanding.

3. Even though it wasn’t our decision to close the project, it was us who tried to reach the community with at least a bit of explanation of what was going on. 

4. We tried every single option to keep the community running including buying it out, selling to somebody else, even pausing … it didn’t work.

Finally:

We started working on CGHUB 6 years ago, from the request “Hi, can you make a website that shows images?” and since then it has become our flagship project and there is nobody in this Universe who would love it and miss it more than we do. Some of our developers are still in disbelief of what has happened. We would never do any harm to this project / community. So we really hope for your understanding. 

No more CGHUB. Someone will take the void. Good luck guys. 

Team Shakuro

Well, this is sad, that’s all.
