Mysteryblock Webhosting Suspended – I’m Back!

10-5-12: Initial release.

Hey guys, its been a few months and it feels great to be back here. It appears between yesterday and today, the web hosting company that hosted (among other websites) had suspended the account.

Granted, I am not an account holder, so I cannot tell you why the account got suspended. The only good thing is I did not write as many articles on that website like I originally hoped, which now gives more fuel to my original philosophy of how I should NOT stray away from free

In fact, today is a great example of what happens when you try to put all your eggs in one basket. What really ticks me off though is I have no idea if I can get my old posts back, but that is for another day.

If you guys haven’t been keeping up, I’ve been busy at making new videos since the GameDexterity account got shut down in June of 2012. Since then, I’ve been hard at work recreating vstPower, and man, we got a lot of good tutorial videos to show off!

The first article I am going to write is going to go back to the Underground roots, and its going to be HOT. Stay tuned!

Two Months Later – Life After The Third WordPress Suspension

In the middle of May, our blog was suspended from WordPress, and it all boiled down to the fact that we had some questionable tutorials.  More specifically, I had a guide that showed users how to bypass Steam to play L4D on Garena and Hamachi.  Before the suspension, we got great hits on this site, about 5k views a month easily.  Now we are barely hitting 2K a month.  See below chart to see our history for the past couple months:

Because of the suspension, we took a nosedive for the month of May.  Two months later the stats speak for themselves.  How do we feel?  Well, I can’t speak for the authors, but I can at least speak for myself below.

It is sort of funny what happens when something you love was taken away from you, especially if it was nine long days.   Ever since we came back, I have had new ideas forming in my head.

First of all, my L4D guides have migrated to a different site.  Maybe you seen it? is the shortcut to see the site.  I expect in the future when L4D 2 comes, the site will be expanded to see that.

Second of all, more time was given to revamp the Sister site at   Here articles that are more questionable are put there. It is a friend’s server, so there is no real fear of having it violate a Terms of Service for example.

Thirdly, I’ve started to think differently in terms of how I write.  I have rewritten many PS2 tutorials for example not only to make them clearer, but I have also added a disclaimer to more of my educational tutorials.  We here want to help you learn, but we do not condone piracy or illegal activities.  Remember that.

Oh yes, and who could forget the birth of the Underground Newsletter?  Two newsletters are done, and already we have a sick idea to put into the third one!  We can’t wait to reveal it!

On the side, we  have also started the E-Book project.  So far it looks very good, and maybe over the course of weeks a few sneak peaks will be released?  We’ll see.

As you can see, life is not so bad after all.  I still have a huge community on youtube.  I and Voltaire have a twitter account to keep you guys posted in the case the blog goes down, and a lot of other miscellaneous projects going on.

If you want to become an author or want to submit an article, please do!  We are always looking for new blood.  Other than that, be on the lookout for the next bounce back tutorial since the L4D days. ;0
