Those are just the automatic fixed penalties, if HMRC thinks they're actively taking the piss and not just being incompetent fucksticks they can bring much bigger guns to bear.

As in actual criminal charges for the directors and unlimited fines.

I had to look up this article and now I'm surprised you didn't put in ones about "restructuring", since that's come out more than once from Roberts' mouth alone; "the company is growing too fast", with that bit at CitCon 2015 where they've been hiring more people; and "higher ups are jumping ship".

AP posted:

People in Austin are being laid off, precisely as predicted by Derek Smart in September. I don't think CIG have made the Austin office close/move public yet, but Derek has already mentioned the new much smaller office location I believe.

Good luck to everyone affected if you're reading.

It's also another team lead position.

Dapper Dan posted:

They'll just make up some magical bullshit that they're too busy or some other stupid loving poo poo. They're defending a company that has missed every single deadline without fail and offered up nothing in response. And the poo poo they have offered up has been horribly broken or is constantly being re-worked.

I recall when Ortwin wrote his demand letter to the Escapist that he CCed two lawyers, one of which it turned out was handling Foundry 42's business specifically with the British regulations like the Companies House. They literally have people working on it, but the fact that nothing is done means they were hired to stonewall the regulators, as well as advise them to paying the fines since it's cheaper to do that than disclose their entire operation.

This was to be expected Patrick was based in Austin and their biggest allocation of environmental artists incl. the Global Environmental Art Lead are based in Manchester, it looks like the majority of art related functions is concentrated down there. It's a drat shame, Patrick seemingly wields a lot of experience, having worked at Blizzard and ID Software.

I've been dealing with poo poo from CIG and their White Knights for at least a year, and have been permabanned/deleted from the forums for pulling all my funds out of that sinkhole.

If anyone wants to question my problem with CIG/Sandi/Chris/Ben, all they need to do is look at my posts here, FB, and twitter.

I came here because I shouldn't have to censor or mince words, unlike the RSI forums.

I've been looking around at other Kickstarter scams recently, after all these SC goings on, and I just came across this Reddit thing for the Futurefoon:

https://www.reddit.com/r/shittykick...ill_never_work/

Now I know Reddit is terrible and I shouldn't be linking to anything, but the comments in this are hilarious in light of what is going on in the SC subreddit.

quote:

Asking questions to possibly destroy the myth is nowadays considered trolling. You actually might get banned for that, not the scammers.

I just wish I could link this in the face of everyone there to show them their own drat people say this poo poo and it's not some conspiracy of Derek Smart(tm)'s Something Awful(tm) LLC.

My friend that is old news, she even said as much during the last public koolaid gathering beneath the concorde in the UK. I would expect she is using her "SAG" name, to further her "acting" career, hopefully on projects that shall never see the light of day in any English speaking country...possibly she's working on a film project to screen at detention camps to induce terrorists to co-operate.
