Long time lurker, first time contributor, big time fan. Latest updates (based on my understanding)
– guy who set up the fundraiser wanted to keep 20%
– Mark opposed and insisted the monies be used only as promised
– guy remains in control of the fundraiser, replies to emails from members with negative comments about Mark and provides his personal Paypal address
– future of the fundraiser uncertain, Mark will try to contact Indie Gogo and set things right
– depending on their position, campaign will either resume under our control or each donor will receive full refund and as soon as Mark is able to use the internet, he will set it up himself without the involvement of “helpers”
I tried to reopen the forum but the platform is difficult to operate. Unfortunately, separate registration is necessary. Long time members with lots of comments should send an email to vasilykirov187 to become moderators.
Also forward links to petitions and support pages. People from Edmonton willing to help should also get in touch.
