The 93 million dollars is what they say they got.

Would they have any reason to lie? Could it be more or less than that, and would they have an advantage to lying about what they actually received from backers?
I think the $$$ numbers are real. The day-to-day numbers (down to the hour) on the gdoc show the revenue rising and falling with ship sales, events, etc. It is a lot of money but even some really dumb poo poo has raised several million on Kickstarter. This is just bigger, dumber and shittier than them all.

Is there a quick 'what the gently caress is going on' primer somewhere? Because seriously what the gently caress is going on?

Like, there was gonna be a spaceship game and now everyone's pissed off?
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.

The dick pics and Reddit/SA flamewar is an amusing side-drama. And it's a crowdfunded project so the implications are bigger than if it was some big corporation losing money.

You've got to hop on the :bandwagon: and ride.

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.
This was the most important thing. Me: never backed Star Citizen, was never interested. But CIG's overreaction to Derek Smart set off all the red alert sirens. You had to have been in the thread to witness it. Chris Roberts posted a stream-of-consciousness letter attacking Derek Smart and The Escapist, which is one of the goddamned craziest things I've seen a company CEO do. Then there was the aforementioned "Citizen Con" event and what you said.

Now Derek is promising Armageddon. Is he talking out of his rear end? Will he soon be proven right? Stay tuned in this thread to find out!

If anyone comes in here posting like "Hey guys what's going on with Star Citizen can someone sum up?" or "What's Derek Smart doing here HUH that's crazy lol?" or anything like that, well there's a loving war going on that's what! And Reddit has found a way to weaponize sheer stupid. Our only defense ... a blistering shitpost counter-attack.

Derek Smart is like ... Muad'Dib if you think about it. He who controls the JPEGs controls the internet. When Derek was cast out of the space game community, he came to our sietch and proved his prowess as a goon. Nay, he proved himself a greater shitposter than all other goons, for which the prophecies foretold will lead us to salvation.

He is the Kwisatz Haderach of shitposting. He is the one who can shitpost where we cannot.

Because MLK had a dream, and Derek Smart is the fulfilment of that dream. Whereas we see a wheechair, an object of divison; Derek just sees a person. A person 20+ year's his junior who he should send threats to over the Internet.
To be the fair the guy was posting things like "I will never rest until Derek Smart is destroyed mwa ha ha!" and bragging about trying to get him banned from Twitter. Pretty much anyone else and goons would be lolling, but they see the wheelchair and suddenly he's a precious baby and :qq:

Pages late, but every time someone complains about doxxing I have to wonder if no one remembers the phone book. You know, that thing they used to leave on your doorstep that had everyone's name, address, and phone number?

Complaining that someone found your real name because you tied it to a very visible social media platform (Facebook, Twitter, etc) to me is pretty much the same as complaining that someone looked you up in the white pages and found your phone number.
Also people used to live in more tightly-knit communities where everyone knew everyone else. You'd get shamed by your fellow townspeople or whoever.

But we don't live like that anymore so people who feel aggrieved by others resort to appealing to (big, distributed online) third parties who will mock and shame the transgressor. It's not that Derek Smart will leak their names that has a deterrent effect, it's that he serves it up to the goons to make hilarious photoshops.
