I can see that the petulant kids have taken over. Thanks for showing the level of maturity around here, I'm sure Reaper is proud of their boards gaining such a reputation.

 

Nope we just decided to threadjack a conversation that was at a dead end, and the hillarity has been fun.

 

 

If you thought I was just a troll, then you obviously didn't do the best thing one can do to a troll, ignore them.

 

More like a gadfly. Look most of us have been pretty nice and have suggested the best way to get your questions answered. You have insisted that it be in public or nothing. You will not be satisfied so there is no answer that will make you happy. For the love of Satan just get your money refunded.

 

 

I'm just trying to find out whether Reaper plans to ship out the paints incrementally over the next couple of months or stick to their original decision of holding all international paint shipments until March, to go along with the miniatures. And I was hoping for an answer here, since there just might be others out there who would like to know too. I know, shocking.

 

What's shocking is you not being able to accept the answer given. Your further discussion reads like my 3-year-old complaining about bed time. "Aww, you didn't really mean it did you?"

 

 

I wouldn't have felt compelled to counter those things if they hadn't been posted by people who didn't need to read the thread nor reply to it.

 

You posted in public. Now you're suprised that people had the temerity to reply? Who's being petulant now? If you didn't want discussion all you had to do was ask for the Reaper contact info and then contact them directly. Instead you decided to keep up this public campaign. I don't know what to tell you Chief except, "Damn the torpedos! Full speed ahead!"

I'm wanted in six states, and also Uruguay, for threadjacking. There must be quite a bounty on me by now. .

 

But they refuse to pay in quintuple chocolate chip cookies so you're safe, Buglips.

 

... Not that I checked. *whistles innocently*

@GG i hope you get the answer you want. but most likely someone will be disappointed by it. I can guarantee i'm not a kid. immature yes and i'll admit to it wholeheartedly. also they really can't give you a definitive answer until the rpm is over. and the whole time the kickstarter has been going they have been getting orders still. so i have a feeling we will be hearing more. why me me me me me from more people before this is done(i won't be included. i'm content and waiting for march).

 

 

Edit: now back to the regularly schedule spectator sport forum.

Seems to me that name-calling is a particularly childish thing to do...

 

Really, your question was answered pages ago. If you wanted confirmation, you could have called Reaper and received an immediate answer, then posted it here, so others could read it.

 

If you didn't want to read others' critiques of your so-called "b*tching," you could have just not read the thread.

 

Overall, I think the reaction to your posts has been, on the whole, negative responses to your own excessive negativity, name-calling, and downright hypocrisy.

 

EDIT: If you'd like evidence of my claims above, I'm happy to provide it:

 

Your very first post in this thread was to accuse Reaper, on their own forums, of breaking a legal contract with you. This was, at best, not very gracious of you, especially given your use of profanity within your (again, very first) post. At worst, this could be seen as an implication of intended legal proceedings, which could be a crisis for a company this small.

 

You then proceeded to refuse repeated suggestions that you contact Reaper HQ directly (until recently, apparently), in favor of complaining in public. You got mad that anyone would dare disagree with you. You received a very prompt response from the president of the company. You were unhappy with the result, which is reasonable. However, you then decided to continue to question it for pages and pages, instead of just accepting it.

 

You proceeded to insult the intelligence of the American members of the board, or at least those disagreeing with you. At the same time, you complained about mean comments directed at you elsewhere. Your posts were dripping in caustic sarcasm, and while you declared that Reaper's inability to predict the success of this campaign was "not my problem," you also acted insulted that anyone would think you were acting entitled.

 

Then, you pretended that there was some attempt made to "silence" you, when people were just disagreeing. Simultaneously, you questioned why anyone would dare question you, suggesting that instead, they just not read/comment. Your query was answered repeatedly, you were again offered direct means of clarification from Reaper themselves, and yet you continued posting angrily. When people tried to have some fun with the thread, you accused them of being petulant children.

 

Despite your disparaging remarks about others' "reading comprehension," you insisted for pages that you needed an answer to your question, one that Mr. Pugh answered in his response to you. I (and others, I think) even rephrased the answer in the most direct way possible. I said, "you won't get them until March." You said, "I don't know how else I can make it clear to you. I've clarified what my situation is regarding filling out the pledge manager several times. I don't think repeating it will make it any clearer." Pages later, you were still claiming, "I'm just trying to find out whether Reaper plans to ship out the paints incrementally [or all at once in] March." Recently, you apparently reread Ed's post, and decided that yes, it did in fact say what I told you it did. So clearly, we weren't the ones who failed at reading comprehension.

 

Then, you declared that you were unfairly attacked, and did nothing wrong. Now do you see why people were unhappy with your posts?

 

EDIT 2: If you dispute any of the above statements, I will gladly link you to the relevant post or posts.

Now that we have almost all of the Reaper Pledge Manager responses in we have been able to finalize our production and shipping schedules. At this time we expect to begin shipping Crown Jewels, Sophies (both kinds), T-shirts and hats starting at the end of October. These shipments are to both domestic and international backers.

Because of serious supplier delays concerning paint bottles we will be including the paint when we ship the Bones models to everyone (domestic and international) in March. We sincerely apologize for this delay and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these unexpected issues.

We are on track to begin shipping all Bones sets, paints sets and figure cases in March and at this time are not aware of any issue that will delay those shipments.

Best wishes and thank you from everyone here at Reaper!

 

END

And the real answer is

 

NOBODY gets their paints till March (according to the update that just hit my mailbox) :devil:

 

The suppliers seem not to have been able to deliver the 100,000 bottles they promised (probably nowhere near that amount from the tone of the email)

 

Maybe we could divert the townsfolk with torches & pitchforks over to the bottle suppliers place (give Bryan a rest :bday: )

 

(maybe Reaper needs a bottle making machine as well as a Bones making machine?)

It was a quite simple situation; if you didn't want to read what I and others wrote, all you had to do was not read the thread. But no, you had to keep arguing too and now this nonsense. So who exactly kept "this thing" alive?

If you thought I was just a troll, then you obviously didn't do the best thing one can do to a troll, ignore them.

All of my other responses have been to the mischaracterizations of my position, wild speculations about conspiracy theories I have never mentioned nor hinted at and a general disparagement of anyone who could possibly be irked at the awesomeness that is Reaper. I wouldn't have felt compelled to counter those things if they hadn't been posted by people who didn't need to read the thread nor reply to it.

 

Ok - Everybody! I'm not going to say to play nice at all this time. Account locks will happen if personal attacks continue.
