Whether it's true or not, donating on Kickstarter is a good idea only like 5% of the time. Those are bad odds. Stop playing bad odds.
eh? i have a 100% success ratio. it's not bad odds if you ensure you invest in things you want that appear reasonable.
just because some investments might fail doesn't make investing a bad idea.

Calm down guys, we had an ex-employee who it turns out has made a career of sweet-talking his way into jobs he is not qualified for. After causing months of pain for everyone in the office we bit the bullet and bought out his contract. Afterwards I heard from people he worked with in past companies that he has been fired from about 5-7 game companies so far.
After he was let go with a generous severance package (about 3 months salary, money he did not earn by any definition of the word). He then turned around and stopped paying his rent thus trying to extract more money from us. So when he claims Project Phoenix money was used in TINY METAL keep in mind the truth is everyone except him has worked hard and at times with zero pay to be able to get investment for TINY METAL for the exact reason that we never used Project Phoenix money for TINY METAL. In fact other employees lent him money and had their own paychecks delayed so he could be paid on time.
Likewise when he writes "I left" the truth is "I was fired 3 months ago and am only writing these lies now because I want the company I barely contributed to, to pay my rent while I go on holidays to America with my severance package instead of paying the rent I owe".
Is it normal for companies to slam someone that personally? Usually they say disgruntled employee... or we are looking into the matter... etc..... Maybe Im just misreading this though..
Jesus christ, have you seen this comment? I guess they just want to piss everyone off. I don't want to go to old topics that have been and gone, I just think it's pretty bad to make a comment like that in regards to a situation they are no part of.
What the fuck? Jesus this man is pandering to an unknown degree, and I honestly don't understand why he even brought up this?
