C&F's link seems to be broken. I can access the site via the Web, so it's definitely operational otherwise. Any ideas?

I can't get it at the URL in the link on the page http://www.thehungersite.com/ - gives 'server not found' the same as clicking the button.

There is a site https://thehungersite.greatergood.com/ that looks similar. Maybe the URL changed - or is that a different organisation? It has a similar vast number of tracking cookies.

The link worked a couple of weeks ago - I clicked it when I installed the ad-blocker so that they got something even if Dale doesn't

No, it's the same organization. The link worked yesterday, but for several weeks now it's been slow in loading, if that means anything.

Maybe they have been changing the hosting and things were not so good in the meantime. I guess the old simpler URL may come back.

It would seem The Hunger Site isn't what it was when Dale first set up the link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hunger_Site#History.

I've followed your link. Assuming the site works, it doesn't look that bad to me.

I guess it works much the same way as the several UK sites that charities can register with. The charity asks its supporters to go to various online stores via the intermediary and that gives the charity part of what it gets for the click. If we click on the banner ads on this page Dale would, presumably, get the whole of the click payment to help fund C&F.

Duckduckgo is reporting 24 tracking cookies (no duplicates) from the Hunger Site , I wonder if rejecting them alters the payment.

Not necessarily bad, just not quite what it was when Dale set up the link.

It appears that thehungersite.com is still a registered domain name, but it is no longer showing up in domain name servers.

It's apparent to me that the difference lies in the "greatergood" addition to the URL. C&F's link doesn't have this, and I'm assuming ours is therefore now obsolete. Is there a way for us to change that, Ben? I'd like to keep it operative, rather than have C&F drag a clutter of broken things behind it.

Yes, so would I. I will try and investigate ...

Hey! The clicky's working now, and it links to the new URL. Response seems snappier, too. Your doing, Ben?

Er ... not that I know of ... I wasn't having a bit of a fiddle around with it, but I didn't think I'd managed to do anything ... nah ... I reckon it was Dale.

Huh. He hasn't said anything. In any event, all's well that ends well. :)

C&F didn't change; the button still links to the original URL. Somebody at Greater Good has presumably restored a system that answers that URL, and forwards visitors to the new Greater Good site automatically.
