I beg to differ. Just as an example from her blog which she linked in the original thread:
I’d say we actually openly boycott CoG until jason and everyone supporting his plan has to leave. Because he’s not going to get some sense into his head.
Oh my crap guys! They’ve never once said they were going to pay anyone in crypto, just they were considering selling a few NFT’s to support their artists using a low emissions scheme version of it. I wouldn’t accept crypto payments, but I’ve already got games with them and this has never even been offered as an option for payment. Given the backlash, I doubt that will NFTs would happen, but I’m not the owner of the company. If you write for COG/HG, that makes you a contractor of sorts. The downside of not owning and running your own business is you don’t get the final say in decisions made about the direction they will take. If it’s that much of a deal breaker, then I suggest moving to a different platform now where you can distribute your game as you see fit, as that’s the only way you’ll have that sort of certainty in your life.
BTW- Which published authors have already left the platform and withdrawn their games from sale? I’m genuinely curious as this is something I am not aware of. You can edit your post so not to pull the thread further off topic.
And yes now I really am out as this is only serving to derail this thread further.
Edit: I can see Meeps writing a reply and I really did mean it, I’m out. There’s really nothing further to say as no one is going to change anyone else’s mind here and this thread is not the place to continue the convo anyhow.
Edit apparently I’m lying about MP telling people to boycott the site according to MP’s blog so… screenshot.
BTW I’m just having a conversation, I have zero stake in whatever happens with the NFTs and have not been doing any gaslighting, guilt tripping or lying or whatever else you seem to be accusing me of. I actually don’t particularly care if you stay or go, even with you badmouthing me on your blog. That’s what happens when you assume people are out to get you. It’s a big world out there, and life’s too short to be caught up in needless drama. Hope you find what you’re looking for out there MP. Best of luck with your new adventures from the sounds of it.
