Quoted from Whysnow:
It is by and large a more negative place and all doom and gloom so it is hard to blame an artist and developer from going underground. Kevin does not owe anything to anyone besides those that paid in. It may be a bad business idea, but he definately does not owe it to pinside to come here.
The only threads that have any negativity to them are the ones where money was taken and product was not delivered. Simple as that. 99.9% of the threads on here are not doom and gloom. It tends to be the threads involving companies who took money (in some cases, over a million dollars) and didn't deliver the product and continue to break their own promises that are full of this kind of energy.
Stop redirecting Skit-B's failures on people who are upset about the situation. Let them be frustrated. Without this forum these people would not have a voice. To be quite honest, without this forum people would not be able to get the refunds they've requested. People are being ignored for THREE MONTHS after requesting a refund? They come here and they can actually get WHAT THEY WERE PROMISED AND NOT BE IGNORED BY SKIT-B. Thank you Pinside.
What do you want people to do? There are 250 people who were promised a game and Kevin doesn't write or call most of them back. And once again, there are more people piling up who aren't being given refunds let alone a reply to an email. Then some guy on here, who isn't even in on the game calls Kevin and gets to talk to him for 10 minutes, and has the entire situation explained to him?! It is not about Kevin owing Pinside. It is all about being fair to people and communicating after taking their money. I assure you, Kevin owes them THAT, yet is choosing to ignore them.
So I will flip your comment around and see how you like it: Pinside doesn't owe Kevin/Skit-B jack shit. If you don't like the threads here, go away. Start your own forum, and see how much fun it is to run one. Stop trying to gaslight everybody here and lumping them into this big pile that you label "doom and gloom" because you are distorting reality.

Many people here don't seem to realize the difference in providing constructive critisisim and just plain being a critic.
Exactly. Finally there is something we agree on. You are right. You can't see the difference between providing constructive criticism and just plain being a critic. Thank you for pointing this out.
