Hosts of the Supermarket Sweeps, hosted by a company called Terraria Server Hosting, have reported that routers have been broken and their websites are unavailable for months.
Some are still struggling to fix the problem.
“I know I am not alone,” said one host, who said his router was broken.
The host told The Hill that he was able to find a new router that worked and that he’s now back online.
But he’s worried the company is selling his router and doesn’t want to be responsible for fixing the problem, the host said.
Another host said he was unable to fix his router for several months.
He said he contacted the company in November and was told that he could buy a new one.
The company sent the host an email on Friday, the day the Super Market Sweep Hosts website went down, and it said it’s sorry for the inconvenience.
The site has since been restored.
The Super Market Sweeps were a popular event for hosting Supermarket sweep hosts who had the bandwidth to host all of the sites in the event.
They also provided a chance for people to buy their wares online and use the proceeds to pay rent.
Hosts were not told the routers were broken or that they could pay a $60 fee if they wanted to, but they were informed that they should.
In one instance, the Super Markets website went offline for several days while the company tried to fix it.
A week later, it returned to normal.
“The Super Market sweep hosts don’t need to be told how much money they owe,” said John Riddle, a lawyer at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has been pushing for better protections for hosts.
“They should be protected from being ripped off.
This company has to pay for the router repair.”
In a statement, Terraria said it “has worked to provide a safe and reliable network for Super MarketSweeps since 2013.”
But host Mark Schatz told The New York Times that he thought Terraria’s response was “unreasonable.”
“I am a Super Market Host and a regular Super Marketsweep host for the last 10 years,” he said.
“So I know what it takes to host a Supermarketsweep and what the hosts need to do.”
In the past, Terrarium has also worked to secure routers and routers that were damaged in other Super Markets.
But Riddle said it is “very unlikely” that Terraria will do that again.
“Terraria has the ability to fix broken routers,” he added.
“But the company doesn’t have the ability or the incentive to fix routers.”
Terraria hosted a Super Markets sweep last month in Brooklyn and had to move a few of the hosts to a hotel for safety reasons.
In the meantime, host Mark said he’s not sure what he will do if the router is broken again.
He asked that his last name not be used because he doesn’t trust Terraria.
“It doesn’t matter if I am the host or not.
If the router doesn’t work, I’m going to be in a hotel.
I’m not going to have a normal life,” he told The Times.
