And yet another host that should add the word Buffalo to the location text.
Buffalo is a part of the state of New York. In most cases people prefer to know the state in which it's located. The city doesn't really matter.. unless you're a hypocrite.

Makes it look like you are purposely avoiding telling people you are in CC.  Especially since most here can see through that.  It makes it look like your ashamed of your location or hiding the fact you are using CC.   Also, there is a huge difference between the bandwidth in Buffalo and a real New York City based network mix, so yes, this can be a bit deceptive telling people you are in "New York" and not defining where.  

Cheers!

Yes it is however I would argue that the city does matter.  For all the reasons TheLinuxBug stated above but also because most have more than one VPS and want to ensure they are not placing it in the same location as others they have, hence city matters very much.

The way you put it, the VPS could end up in Albany, Niagara Falls, New York City, Buffalo, Syracuse, etc.

You're making yourself look like an overdramatic hypocrite against colocrossing right now because you're trying to tell lies to bash the datacenter. The reason that our advertisements just say "New York, USA" is because we thought that consumers would prefer just knowing the state and country. If they wanted to know more, they could always just visit our website and click on the network & datacenters page here: http://greenvaluehost.com/network.html where we proudly inform our clients that we use ColoCrossing and that their network is fantastic. It's been there ever since the site launch.

If we had our servers located in XO Communication's datacenter in NYC and advertised New York, USA, you wouldn't say a thing.

Are you still not over the ColoCrossing-LET fiasco? It's time to let go.

You may also need to brush up on your English speaking skills, because the definition of deceptive is "giving an appearance or impression different from the true one; misleading". Since when was BUFFALO not a part of NEW YORK and the UNITED STATES?

Have you noticed the recent update to the offer rules?  I think I am not the only one that saw this as an issue.  Here is an excerpt for you:

Noteable changes are the requirement to post the DATACENTER your services are offered from as well as the actual location of the datacenter. For example, people say: "Chicago, Denver, Seattle, and New York", but typically their 'New York' is Buffalo, and not NYC. We want providers to be more honest about their actual physical location, so we now require the actual CITY to be used in the description.
Please review the updated rules: Click Here

So, from now on, please "proudly" inform your potential clients in your advertisement and there will no longer be an issue. 

Cheers!

It's funny because it wasn't that long ago people were getting sick of the colocrossing bashing. Now I'm getting sick of the paranoid "everything is an insult aimed at colocrossing" attitude. You're not cheering for an underdog when referring to the company that single handedly owns the low end VPS market so using the martyr angle to avoid topics and attempt to shame everyone who says something you don't like will get very old very fast.

Before you play another martyr card, I provide zero competition for you.

Actually, as per the new rules published yesterday for VPS offers you must include the actual city and list the datacenter(s) used: http://vpsboard.com/topic/4-updated-rules-for-posting-vps-offers/

This isn't a stab at Colocrossing, some will argue that their Buffalo network is one of their most stable/best. I've never used it so I don't know. But this is to prevent confusion as there are a number of providers who offer multiple locations and list cities for their other locations, then say 'New York' instead of Buffalo.

Not a huge deal, but I've edited your post to say Buffalo. All new offers from all providers need to meet this criteria.

For what it's worth, BuyVM does this too. On their site they list the city for one location, and the state for the other. It's confusing and somewhat misleading. 'Vegas and New York'. If they post an offer on here in the future they'll need to be clear in their offer as well by saying Vegas and Buffalo.

I won't remove the post, but also for future reference your offer should have a small description of your company and what you're all about.

From the updated rules:

  • Offer must include a small description of the company and of the plan details. Don't just list plans, tell us about your company.
I may send out a mass PM to all providers just to make these updated rules more clear.

If your are proud of your service provider then why do you hiding things? Some hosts like you do mix cities and states like they want. IPXcore does the same.

I'm not trying to hide anything at all. If I was, then the information wouldn't be PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITE. At the time that this thread was posted, all content was following the rules. The city rule was not implemented at the time of the post and I wasn't aware of it until I was messaged about it by Curtis.

When will the conspiracy against ColoCrossing and ColoCrossing providers end? This is getting ridiculous and you all know it.

That's the martyr card I'm talking about. If you're proud of colocrossing then keep your chin up and stay proud. You've posted more about colocrossing hatred than any other single person that I've seen lately. It kind of comes across as two guys chilling on the couch not saying a word, and one keeps blurting out "Stop being so mean to me!" Invisible enemy or trying to shame people for things said previously by making yourself out to be some kind of victim to uninformed onlookers? Just chill and move on.

No one is doing this besides you. There are multiple who advertise here and have service with CC such as CloudShard, DotVps or BuyVM and no one seems to bash you.

This buffalo thing is getting ridiculous though. Before Choopa provider used to promote as NY and now buffalo providers are. Might as well just promote the country instead of promoting the city. You know, people are generally happy by knowing what country they are using.

Unless you are ashamed of your provider (like I am with dacentec and hence barely promote our lenoir location), I don't see any reason for not promoting city. But that is just me.

Just dropping by to let people know a few things!

As Curtis/MannDude said, from now on we'll be requiring the City Names in the location!  GVH-Jon just didn't know it yet as the rules are just new.  Not a problem really, just make sure to all you providers out there to get your next ad post right! 

When will the conspiracy against ColoCrossing and ColoCrossing providers end
There's no conspiracy.  Relax.  It was just a simple request for clarification that other people started commenting about.  Hopefully our new revised rules will help prevent issues like this in the future (mostly miscommunication)!

I am not going to turn this into a CC fest but I did just want to point out that there is no conspiracy any more, it's fact, aside from owning LET and denying it they also own CVPS, I and some others have seen absolute proof that they simply can't talk their way out of.

Now all of that is water under the bridge and old news.  But the real point here is about knowing who is where, Digital Ocean has opened up another New York City DC location, so with all the "New York" providers it fairly essential for many to have visibility of where their service will be and with whom in terms of the top level provider.

I am not bashing CC, they have a very large chunk of the market in their area and good luck to them however they choose to do it.  The same applies to areas like the Netherlands, it's becoming quite saturated and with fewer data centers you again need to know who is where if you have a distributed presence there.

And besides all of that If you post an offer here, LET/LEB or WHT it simply makes good customer focused sense to tell them exactly where you are instead of expecting them to get part of the info in the offer and then have to go to your website to find the rest.
