    Rumor says it might just come back...But those rumors haven't been confirmed yet by any relevant sources. What do u think? In light of the recent happenings (the two "W" getting stronger, gaining some momentum) does it come back? Does the market need a new, revised OiNK? Feel free to put down Your ideas here.

    even if it does return, it would be a long road to get even close to what it used to be. Unless they still have their database of users, indexes, etc, which is doubfull IMO.
    Invite only will take a long time to build back a userbase, and open signups would not be good for a site with such a history and publicity.

    So I'd say oink will not return, at least not as we knew it, but I'd love to be proven wrong!

    OiNK always updates his page, last update:

    "Expect updates on or before February 4th . "

    So... you can never know
    Hope OiNK would come back, it was a damn good tracker

    If it came back i would like to see it back current sites are close to what oink was i just don't feel at home as i did at oink but if it was going to come back will it be as strong as it was before it went down is the question i pose so it's a 50/50

    IMHO the staff at What and Waffles have been a lot nicer than the ones who ran the pink pig. I don't remember what the exact stats were at Oink before they were shut down, but aside from their overly large userbase the content is catching up. Sometimes when things die something better is born from the ashes.

    Either way, the more the merrier!

    Now there would be just one more, but we should respect any idea of the Owner(s) and help them. At least those who had account there

    I don't think it will ever come back

    However if it did it will be nothing like its old self. If it was to come back anywhere near as strong as when it went down it needed to do it within days while everyone still had the files on their HDD. Also now that What and Waffle are becoming more established I figure it will join them in being a good music tracker but not the amazing source that Oink was. I figure it would take it some time to build up to even the level of the two W's. We've all seen the teething problems they've had no reason to think that any revived Oink would avoid them.


    Edit:

    I wonder why someone even bothered to vote if..."Not interested, not my scope of interest" was their answer
