Whee! Paypal's freeze on our account is making it so that I can't pay people today.

I am pretty fucking pissed. I sent them all the documentation they asked for last night, hoping it would be resolved today, but didn't hear anything back.

...I also immediately filed a complaint with the CFPB because this whole thing seems decidedly non-kosher.

It's ok, maybe people will slowly get it. Probably not.

They've only got $35k of our money frozen, so we're not in any real danger. It's just an inconvenience at the moment.

Worst case I hire a payroll company and pay people the normal way.

You Minnete/Annie fans are tearing each other apart. You need not fight about the two child-like (in appearance, at least) favorites.

Just calm down/relax and vote for a real woman...like the Blood (tomato) Goddess:


Also, I'm not going to post it up (because I don't have any major beef against Minnete), but I will link this picture because it's hilarious seeing a smiling Feng serenely throw Minnete in the trash: http://i.imgur.com/e6enm2L.jpg

That's a bit of a relief. Still sucks to hear about, though. Paypal sucks.

Vote for Annie, by the way. It's about the closest a character's going to get to TTGL in this game.

It would be hilarious if Annie didnt get enough votes to make top 4 and Minette did. Yeah that would be nice

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE

Ten minutes in GIMP, couldn't resist.

You hear that? Fucking Queen plays in the background when Annie is off killing skullgirls. She taught the McClouds how to be number 1.

I don't understand... why? Is this seriously because people wanted their money back when their voted character didn't make it into the final rounds of voting?

I think it's sketchy, but their logic sort of makes sense.

Basically, they are terrified of chargebacks. If we spend all the money and don't deliver and everyone chargebacks, Paypal is concerned they will be on the line for it.

So they are effectively treating it as a loan. I mean, the guy flat-out said, "Until the threat of chargebacks has passed, Paypal is effectively financing your development."

They also asked if we're good for the $700,000 if something goes wrong. I said "No," because, well... we're not?

The whole point of crowdfunding is to give us the money to develop stuff, not take out a loan.


If they don't resolve this early next week, I'm going to escalate with the CFPB, take it to the media, and probably broadcast the guy's e-mail address and ask people to send them a friendly note saying that they were not scammed and they trust us or something like that.

I am not fucking around with this shit.
