Experts of Dangerous: The SkitB Story
Quoted from Oldgoat:
The answer is right in front of our eyes. C'mon guys. Registering as a non-profit before the last presidential election? Working on a project involving Arnold Schwarzenegger? Arnold, very conservative, Schwarzeneggar. Arnold, calling out liberals as 'girly men' Schwarzeneggar? The name of the 'game' just happens to be the same as the name of a lethal weapon developed by the US military, whose offensive capabilities remain classified? The IRS branch that was at the center of the IRS targeting scandal just happens to be located in a state bordering Michigan? Coincidence? I think not.
I smell a conspiracy. And, if I am correct, the games will start flowing after the 2016 election, assuming a Conservative wins.
The cat is out of the bag
Looks like indentured servitude is about to make a comeback
I hope for Kevin's sake, a corporation was formed
I stumbled across this on the skitb website re: duck hunt and it's unfortunately relevant.
"We're not ones to ever leave something at a simple answer, though, so we thought it would be interesting to show how it was made in the most step-by-step way possible without seeming like a tutorial. That being said, if you have any questions about it, go ahead and use our contact form and ask. I do wish we would have documented everything in a more complete fashion, but, you know, hindsight and all that. I'll do my best to keep a tally of money and time spent on the project as we go along, as well, just for information's sake."
This is intended for the locked thread:
And I think robin just moved to the front of the refund list. That he hasn't been refunded is a slap in the face to all of us
Most importantly: HOLY SHIT, YOU CAN DONATE BITCOINS TO PINSIDE NOW?!?!? This is about to become the ferrari of forums (not that it's not maserati right now)
Quoted from foxct:
I put my last house in my wife's name, so if I got sued for malpractice the plaintiffs would have a harder time taking the house. I am not suggesting that's why Kevin did this, it's just one reasons a person would.
Is your practice a corporation or sole proprietorship? Asking for a friend...
Oh, well I can assure you they're affordable. Certainly more so than personal liability
I think I paid closer to 200 for my llc and about 500 for my s corp. Llc in ny and corp in delaware
I'm not really familiar with partnerships, but the limited liability is key. Is skit-b a legal entity?
Yeah, it's amazing how many people aren't aware of call recording. I've had to do it a few times, and I even ask myself aloud if I consent, just to be safe.
It was well after. There was a video posted to help wrangle in the remaining balances.
Interestingly, the video used posts from detractors as a marketing tool. Anyone have this video archived?
There was predator art on the website. Plenty of it.
I think there are screen shots here
Same shit, different day.
The beans are getting spilled this week one way or the other
Quoted from ccotenj:
ayuh, that's gonna be a really sticky wicket...
given the apparent timing of events, the pile of fecal matter will be high... i say apparent, since i don't know exact dates... but my understanding of the sequence of events would seem to indicate that he at least solicited funds post c&d...
i freely admit i could be wrong on my understanding of the sequence of events...
Especially with the house of cards corporation he set up
If this was a "choose your own ending" book, I'd have whysnow get his game a day after he lost the bet, and then arrested for possession of stolen property.
Oh, and everyone else gets full refunds, of course
OH MY GOD, THAT'S IT!!!
The Mythbusters are going to come in and solve the predator mystery as the promotion for their game, then they both ship the next day
The LLC protects him under most cases. Criminality is not one of them.
Additionally, we're not even sure that any entity exists in any form. In which case, he'll want to disappear quickly
Yeah, regardless of who it was with the direct connection to kevin saying that, it was ominous
I remember license rumors from right after the website cleanse.
Not about calling fox, but about not having a license. People said it didn't exist or maybe expired
Regardless of how this turns out, I don't think it's best for kevin to be openly involved with any games/monetary transactions again.
Even if it was all rainbows and butterflies tomorrow, NOONE is going through this shit again
There's plenty of paperwork on the buyers' side of things. The seller's? That remains to be seen
I don't have any money in this game. I'm here to find out what the hell is going on, like many of you all.
It would be great if kevin would tell us, but it looks like martin or aurich will have to clear the air. Why it hasn't been done yet is beyond me
I've been pretty aggressive towards Kevin. He's the damn ringleader of "wait and see." DAMMIT KEVIN!!!
Even if they do, that may be the case.
He's definitely not coming to my predator unboxing
It's a shame because I had hoped to use them to print a set of one-off bootleg decals
Quoted from dung:
Laughing my butt off about this one. If they had kept their mouths shut this wouldn't be a fiasco. Fox had no clue this was a thing.
Eventually it would have come to light, and then the police would be knocking on owners' doors with a signed warrant for possession of stolen property. Also, all the money would be gone
Quoted from dung:
No the police would not have knocked on owner's doors. Fox would have taken Skit to court. Skit would be screwed. The people who had games would still have games.
Ok... In court, they would get a list of buyers. There is no statute of limitations on possession of stolen property
Someone doesn't like in living color and hash joints...
In all fairness though, hash in a joint is a bit impractical from a thermodynamic standpoint
Yeah, chargebacks don't mean shit if the coffers are empty, and you could dig yourself a hole if you go spending your (their) money
I personally prefer conductive thread. I sew like a blind amish housewife, but I've made some cool stuff. I've got some sheets that illuminate like a star-filled sky when you lay down on them
