Default Been a looong time.

I know, it has been too long.

Found in this thread...https://www.gmforum.com/t266863/

I'm not really sure how to explain this, but my PM box is FULL of PM'* between willwren and myself pertaining to the group buy of an item. PM'* from ME expressing my DISPLEASURE with how this order was going about. The company'* website was a disaster, e-mails FROM the company were not replied to, and calling them was a joke. It was pretty clear from someone that I had to make this sale happen no matter what. Why didn't the order go through? I wanted protection for the members that wanted to purchase the item. I wanted something in writing from the company. Invoices, warranties, costs etc. I got NOTHING. So, I got pissed, and I layed low for awhile. I figured, if I disappeared I could cause some havoc for wren, then come back and issue refunds.
I had no intention of taking the money and keeping it for myself.

If some of you recall the first donation program we had? All that money went to MY Paypal. Guess who else had access to MY Paypal account so he could see balances? Wrenn himself. At that time we had almost $3000. Did I run then? No.

Some of you expressed displeasure with getting the hats in a timely manner. What did I do? I REFUNDED the purchase price back to you. Where did that money come from? MY POCKET! Nuff said.

Now, you are probably wondering, why wasn't I banned for my actions? Good question. I don't know either. Maybe because someone else had something to do with it and couldn't force himself to ban me. Though technically, I did nothing wrong. Morally? Yes. So with that, I would like to apologize to the 4 members that participated in the group buy. I know my actions were wrong, and at the time it seemed like I was decieving everyone, but that was not my intention.

I hope this explains the ??'* everyone has had.

wow, this place sure has changed. I'd ask for a PM, but currently my inbox is like 175% full, which probably means I cannot get any more PM'*. And that'* after I had purged the non-important stuff. Rest of it relates to sales and such.

That information is most likely no longer relevant. Maybe export them to a csv etc and then purge your box.

There'* no secrets here though.

I seen that option. I'll give it a go and clean it out.

Another thing that is weird is, all those PM'* from wren are now in someone elses name. ??

Odd, the forum has undergone major upgrades and updates. Not sure about that. Venom would know more, but fron Wren is from Wren and it'* all the same.

Glad you found your way back, to clear your PM box just click the check all box, then at the bottom choose delete. You will need to do this for every page of PMs.

I guess I'm the half the analogy Bill so cleverly told. I lightly remember you as a member Mike. But none of the drama. Not a clue. I was on/off alot and tried to ignore the status quo. The person you speak of is no longer here. Nor those who left trying to drag large e-pieces of the Forum. I learned more of what not to do running a Forum while previously here, than I did the how to....From that I think we have a pretty good post reconstruction Crew . Your on even ground, and we don't dwell in the past here; so feel free and welcome to be a part of BF. John ~ GXP Venom
