Guest posted a topic in OfftopicHey guys, In case you haven't been following, Dimastech has now filed for bankruptcy which is only affecting the Italian side of the company, apparently. However, a few of our members have had their hard earned cash taken from them with numerous promises where this, that and the other will be happening. Nothing ever surfaced from it and they are worse off for it. We are a community, and therefore, one member on here, who goes by the name of George, thought a fundraiser would be a good idea to show what the community is all about. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, he is no longer able to do so. That's where I am stepping in to try and help out. We already have a list of people who are willing to donate to help the two members affected in this ordeal. My thinking is that it should all go into a pot and then shared out equally between both members. That's the only way that I see it being fair. Yes, one lost more than the other, but it has to remain fair and not divided up in a 70/30 split as an example. I will put up my hand and organise the financial side of things. ****************** Update: I will be sending out PMs this weekend to all of those on the list, with the exception of one member who already contacted me. To be entirely transparent, you are welcome to get in touch with both members yourself, or you can get in touch with me and I will distribute the funding equally. I will be taking the cash into my PayPal and then splitting it 50/50 to both members. I do ask, however, that if you send it to them directly, that you can give me a figure to add to the overall total. I will (or won't, your choice!) add the donation amount to your name so that you get the credit that you deserve. ****************** Here is a list of the current generous souls whom are willing to give a little something back to the community out of their own pockets. (Thank you for the list, GK!) Running Total Google Docs Spreadsheet to keep track (for you guys!) of the donations; https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1c24qpRYqfjvEa35cwzh1IGMLxeLXtz7Vh1Ousp1tUdw/edit?usp=docslist_api Current total sent to each member: â‚¬450 EUR (â‚¬900 total!) Current approximate total: >$1500 USD!!!!!!! (Accurate as of 08/18/16) (Note: I work nights, and I am being absolutely swarmed with PMs from everyone (due to my own mistake, admittedly...) which is making it difficult to keep up. I will update the spreadsheet below as fast as I possibly can. Don't worry, no one has been forgotten about, and no one will be left behind. ) Contributors 01) Splave 02) Elkim & PKBO 03) Kimandsally 04) George 05) SamsaRulz 06) First anonymous member 07) Second anonymous member 08) Johnd0e 09) Bullant 10) TheMadDutchDude 11) Alex@ro 12) der8auer 13) Xtreme Addict 14) Leeghoofd 15) barbonenet 16) bartx 17) Third anonymous member 18) dhenzjhen 19) Massman 20) M.Beier 21) Wizerty 22) Christian Ney 23) knopflerbruce 24) websmile 25) CAxVIPER 26) Trouffman 27) riska 28) GtiJason If you, like the 6th and 7th member (currently) would like to remain anonymous, please PM me and state that you wish to do so. I don't need a reason and I will respect your privacy. So, come on! Let's be a real community and help these two guys out who had the unfortunate misfortune of dealing with Dimas as things were headed south. You are more than welcome to read through the thread, which spans over more than a year, if you wish to do so over here: http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=138578 Update (07/28/16) There's one thing which I had refrained from saying (to try to keep it calm in here), but I have to say it now as I feel it is only fair. Sorry, my friend. It's long overdue! To all whom are unaware; All of this would never have happened without the idea stemming from my good friend George. He was not recognised in the initial post (WHAT!?) for his efforts and I would like to give a big shout out to the fella from Greece. Thank you, George. You're a great friend and you have huge influences upon the people that you reach. I look forward to (hopefully) meeting up with you in the not too distant future where we can share a drink and a laugh.
