Hey Karl, are you and your brother in law Matilda2013 on reddit too? I mean loving small world but if the pool of legitimate arse end crazy cultists is only half a dozen or so, how many could be from Germany right?

Some people have criticised the dinner menu for being mostly jpegs of meals that they have yet to work out what the ingredients are yet.

I don't think I've ever summarized before so here goes:

A month or two ago Derek Smart showed up with a bunch of allegations about mismanagement and poo poo going down at the highest levels of CIG. The project was already on shaky ground around here due to missing every single projected date and essentially running in continual fund raising mode for 3 years, picking up 90 million with nothing to show for it. Over the course of the next month, basically everything that DS alleged that could be proven, was proven, mostly relating to firings and internal behavior. CIG's responses grew increasingly weird and erratic. They went from ignoring him to banning/refunding him to summarily firing "Traitors" to threatening a journalist who covered some of this with legal action. Not making this up. His campaign did get them to begrudgingly open up the refund gates though, and everyone in this thread who still had any money in the game promptly got it out. This all culminated in a ludicrous "Citizen Con" event where they basically got up on stage and revealed that they had gently caress-all to show for the last year's worth of development- then Chris Roberts spit on a cake, cut it up and served it to people while the attendees sang happy birthday. Still not making this up.

Along the way there have been several sideshows involving people posting recipes, an insane bitcoin-rich pedophile who keeps buying accounts and avatars to "Troll" with, another spacerich guy who likes to send ship packages and pictures of his penis to women, the increasingly reality-detached star citizen subreddit, and DS himself taking all comers in a no holds barred twitter slap fight.

Oh also a numbers account tweeted a link to Derek Smart that lead him to discover a number of highly-placed people at Foundry 42 were formerly part of the Gizmondo catastrophe and may or may not be involved with the Swedish mafia. Still not making it up.

Wow. Well, good on you for letting them announce it first. In the context of a big development company, how normal is this? I mean I work in a development office with about 30 full time people and we see maybe two turn over in a year, but I imagine it would increase at a greater than linear rate as the office got bigger.

http://www.compensationforce.com/2015/03/2014-turnover-rates-by-industry.html

roughly 15 % for the whole industry on a yearly basis.

Go figure yourself, I would be impressed if you can up with a rough estimate what would be normal for CIG's employment turnover. Keep in mind CIG was a start up and they pay less than average.
And don't forget we are at least 4 years in production according to our mighty internet warlord.

That's pretty much it. The hilarity comes from the fact that we *don't* know what's going on, except the project is at the very least deeply troubled, and if you believe Derek Smart, on the verge of imminent collapse. There are some people posting here who know more than what they're letting on.

Although, and here's the thing, some of us that have been part of all the hubub for 2 years or 3 now do bring up this poo poo, and everyone just forgets it later on and asks the same question again.

On that note, feel free to update the OP with my own spergpost that's a recap of most of the RSI forums/community drama of years 2013 and 2014 that I witnessed and summarized, tia Derek, here's the link:

yeah sure turnover happens, especially in the lower echelons, but it doesn't look good when they are bleeding producers since they still haven't really produced anything
