    I've been away for a few months and didn't post in here anymore.
    Now that I got back on track :), I see that some members got their custom title during this time and I can bet they made the payment more recently than me and others that posted in this thread.
    It'll be 1 year two weeks from now.
    I guess everybody gets scammed online at a point in their lives. Good thing it was just a stupid custom title, right?

    While that is indeed a fact of live - fraud is still fraud, isn't it? We'll be forever waiting, I think:(

    It's in a grey zone. The payment being a "donation" and all that...

    Yes, that's also true - which is obviously a legal loophole that allowed the owner to jump through. I did hear, however, that Shawn is under investigation for other legal matters relating to DigitalPoint:eek: Whether or not it's true or not is yet to be found, though.

    It's been discussed, he's going to be the only one that doesn't get his.

    So if Bebicul is the only one that's not going to get his custom tag, does that mean I'm going to get mine?? <wishful thinking> :rolleyes:

    So should be expecting my money back?
    This is what it says on your website: "$50 donation gives you the ability to change your user title in the forum". There's nothing about it "being discussed".
    I'm trying to be as civilized as possible, but it's been a year since that payment(donation) was made and I most certainly won't accept being bullied like this.
    I'm sorry if I stepped on some toes and got some of your staff to dislike me, if that's the reason you're acting like this(the only reason I can think of); I may have, I don't really remember, but, I repeat, I won't let anyone play with my money and make a fool of me on a public forum using phrasing like the one above.
    I don't know who else is in your staff(I called your customer service number several times, but nobody ever answered), but judging from the few interactions I've had with you, Crazy_Rob, you always seemed like a nice and decent guy, so I'm asking you: please explain this whole situation to me. I find it hard to believe that a company as big as Digital Point is pretending to be is doing childish things like this on other people's time and money.
    I would like to resolve this amicably and as soon as possible. Thank you!

    Yeah, you'll be getting your's really soon, so hang in there. Bebicul is the only one not getting one.

    I think this should just all stop. Bebicul should get his too - he paid 50$ - it's only fair.

    You're right. It should all stop. The whining is doing absolutely nothing. As you've all been told before repeatedly, no one checking in here can do ANYTHING about it. Only Shawn can. We can't reach him. We can't make him do anything. He'll check in when he does, and that's unfortunately all there is to it - and I do sympathize with you. I'm closing this thread. I'll sticky it to make it more likely that Shawn will see it if and when he stops by this area again. That's all we can do.
