Whew! Did you see the Q2 reports for IDW? I can't imagine them lasting much longer.
Wait, what? No I didn’t at all! Where can I see them?
Let me go hunt them down.
I like Sharkrainbow, but she frames her posts so that the only way a person can respond to her is to cross the line and enter the political arena. I also suspect that she reports the folks that do respond to her.
That's a tactful way of putting it. There are usually good points embedded in the posts, but it's like everything is run through a tumblr filter and then translated into 19 year old girl-ese.
You're not wrong.
Does Roberts leaving confirm another one of those 'conspiracy theories' from 4chan?
Ha that is exactly what I thought as well, my dude.
Okay, just making sure I wasn't losing my mind.
I was originally going to comment “maybe he’s taking a break because he’ll be the head writer for whoever holds the license in 2018 ;)” but didn’t want to start a riot
I still think they're in Ratchet's head.
Check that out @hardlurk and @justiceg
Totally agreed with you there. Was a neat video! Just watched it. Thanks for sharing it.
IDW is definitely in financial trouble, but there's no reason to make a bad situation out to be worse than it really is.
Here's another chart: https://imgur.com/a/9cByd
The video is equating a decrease in operating income (compared to the same quarter in the previous year) with unprofitability. That's inaccurate.
I like how a mod went through the "brief confirmation" thread and removed the posts quoting Chris Ryall but left Faelon's post which really was just repeating all the unlikely stuff from 4chan. And by like I mean it makes no sense, unless there really is a conspiracy and the mods are in on it and doing damage control to make sure the only people left talking about it look bad. Is this a psyop? Am I being incepted?
It does seem supremo-weird. Definitely that kind of behavior is suspect.
You guys are missing the point. The mods think they're in the 'inner-circle' they have more direct access to people at IDW. That's it.
So of course they're not going to want the bad news leaked.
You can't have a discussion with people when their identities are tied to the fiction that much.
Yeah that’s what I’m seeing there. :)
Is he being dense on purpose? He knows we're only referring to the exit interview. It's almost like he wants the threads to get locked down.
I thought the same thing. Shamanking had similar behavior - rather than address the points people were making it turned into posting about whatever fit the narrative. I'll be shocked if this thread continues past the day given how fast previous ones have gone down, but hopefully not. =)
i didn't want to challenge them on it because I wanted to keep the thread about the reboot / future of the franchise.
This stuff really means *a lot* to some people. I don't get it myself but...
Those two, from what I understand, are what got the previous thread closed.
I love that your posts aren't drawing any ire. You're writing pretty much exactly what I wrote in that one thread.
I’m trying my best to not be personally attached to the discussion...it is tough bc occasionally I’ll read something that makes go “WTF is thiiiiiis” =)
We are fighting the good fight ;)
Watch out. They're going to label your very cogent and well reasoned argument as spam or hate speech.
Oh, and I'd love to get that Ryall firing thread opened back up now.
Ha you and me both!!!
I don't understand how they can make any money with the numbers being so low. Paying the talent. The cost of printing the books. The license payments to Hasbro. They have to be losing money at this point.
We were discussing that very topic about Chris Ryall. It was very respectful and civil, but there were some fanatics that jumped in and turned it snarky.
I don't know if the rumors posted on 4chan are true. Some of them have the hint of being true, though. And no, there were some guys that didn't like the direction of the discussion so they cried and got it shut down.
People just coming in and posting stuff like "tin foil conspiracy don't pay attention"
Haha, case and point. lmao.
Haha. I know I can be a hard pill to swallow, but there are some people on this board that have no capacity for introspection/reflection.
