I CANT T BELIEV
WHO THE FUCK IS GOING TO FUDN THIS
ALSO THEYRE USING THE FLEXIBLE FUNDING PROGRAM WHICH IS A BIG NONO
USUSALLY KICKSTARTERS HAVE A SET GOAL, IN THIS CASE 17 000$ AND IF THEY DONT REACH THIS GOAL AND ARENT ABLE TO FUND THE EVENT,THEN ALL THE MONEY WOULD BE RETURNED TO THE BACKERS WHO MADE A PLEDGE
BUT WITH FLEXFUNDING, THEY GET TO KEEP HOWEVER MUCH THEY MAKE, NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT IS
SO LETS SAY THAT THEY MIRACULOUSLY REACH ABOUT 15 000$
THEY COULD EASILY SAY ‘WELL ITS NOT 17 000$ SO WE DONT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO FUND DASHCON, SO IT’S OFF’
BUT THEY STILL GET TO KEEP THAT MONEY AND DO WHATEVER THEYD LIKE WITH IT
DO NOT FUND THIS
This is not us.
I repeat, THIS IS NOT US.
To quote the OP, DO NOT FUND THIS.
Running a funding campaign is not something we’re currently doing, nor do we intend to in the future. We don’t know who is responsible for that Indiegogo campaign, but we will be contacting them today in regards to the fraudulent nature of such a campaign, as it’s not connected to the advertised event in any way.
Furthermore, we have not disappeared. We’re simply taking the time to clean up the significant damage done a few weeks ago. There are a lot of changes being made, but those take time. In fact, this process is far more time consuming that any of our projected timelines would accommodate. However, these are things that must get done. So, we ask once again, please bear with us while we, the remaining staff, do what we can to fix an otherwise dismal situation.
That said, this sort of blatant fraud needed to be addressed and be addressed immediately. Apologies if anyone believed, even briefly, that this was connected to us in any way. Once again, THIS IS NOT US.
DO NOT FUND THIS.
Please signal boost so no one falls victim to this scam.
Thank you for your time.
So yesterday I found out that Randy Queen (artist of DarkChylde) filed a bunch of DMCA takedown notices to Tumblr to remove posts of his covers on this blog (the entire posts, not just the images). I’ve also gotten messages from other users that he’s had their stuff removed too (redraws, etc that have been featured here). Non-critical Tumblr posts of his art/covers and those praising his work appear to be unaffected.
I’m writing this to let other people who run sites that might have criticized his work ( thehawkeyeinitiative, bikiniarmorbattledamage, boobsdontworkthatway, repair-her-armor, comicartcorrections etc) know that he seems to use DMCA takedowns to remove pages that are critical of his work. And, to be prepared that he might have Tumblr remove your posts without warning (there was no prior communication of any kind, or conventional requests for removal).
Also, if you’ve submitted redraws of his stuff to these sites, you might want to ask them to put them private for now (if he complains about a submission you’ve made, Tumblr will count it as a complaint against your account).
To date, Mr. Queen is the only artist who has taken this kind of action - other artists and publishers seem to understand Escher Girls & other similar sites are fair use and criticism, and that fan discussion, positive or negative, is important and helpful to their business. (In fact, the creators I’ve interacted with are either fans of EG, or expressed disagreement but know that it’s fan criticism.)
If anybody is curious about what his DarkChylde art looked like and why they were featured on this blog you can find them here.
(Don’t harass him on his Facebook or Tumblr by the way. I’m not interested in having a feud with him, just letting people know what’s going on.)
Update: He has now filed a DMCA takedown with Tumblr to remove this post. This post is still up on Escher Girls, but every single reblog of it has been removed.
Saying it again as clearly as I can.
These bullying tactics by Randy Queen are DEAD WRONG and this is completely unacceptable.
Mr. Queen, LEAVE THESE PEOPLE ALONE.
You are absolutely in the wrong on this, and are only making yourself look worse by further threats.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS AN ADDED CAPTION BUT THEN I WENT TO THE VIDEO AND IT’S REAL

Playing this for a class on Monday LOL
Neil, I love you.
I can’t NOT reblog this for Math and Science Week!
buttonmeupbuttons said: So far Google and Goodreads have not been much help, so I thought I might try asking here. Inspired by the "We need diverse books" campaign I'm trying to read a bunch of horror stories with diverse protagonists and authors, but I am having the worst time trying to find any latinx horror authors! The best I could do was J.F. Gonzalez and César Aira. I found a few more, but none of their work had been translated so I couldn't read it. Would you or your readers have any book suggestions? Thanks!!!
I don’t read a lot of horror, so I’m leaving this one open. Readers?

Oh cool, I think this is the first one I’ve seen where “women of all body types” didn’t just have variances in HEIGHT.
buttonmeupbuttons said: Any recommendations for diverse horror novels? I love dark and creepy books, whether it's a ghost story for kids or a gory slasher story for adults. So far I've read "Bleeding Violet" (which I love!), "Skeleton Man", and "How I became a Ghost", and I'm planning to read Poppy Z. Brite, "Dark Matter: A Century of Speculative Fiction from the African Diaspora", "Moonshine" by Alaya Dawn Johnson, "The Girl from the Well" by Rin Chupeco, and "Of Metal and Wishes" by Sarah Fine.
This is a great list. Let’s open it up to tumblr for more recommendations!
Totally forgot about the Dark Thirty, yes that book is also awesome! Gonna have to check out Tananarive Due, thanks!
Bad Girls Don’t Die looks cool, but I’m not quite sure how it’s a diverse book? Is the main character a POC or queer?
