Totally uncalled for.

I agree. Instead of being helpful you effectively called him a sucker. No sympathy, no useful information or advice, just a little condescension.

You could have related your own experiences or ... well something. Go back and read your response as though you were the original poster and ask yourself if it would have been helpful to you.

Your comment disparages the idea that anyone would agree to piggy-back or pre-order a Kickstarter game a year in advance by suggesting that anyone willing to do so is naive and stupid ("I Have Ocean Front Property In Arizona..."). That's uncalled for, and potentially violates the TOS of BGG for personal attacks.

Paying for a pre-order (or "piggy-backing") a year in advance is not uncommon, especially for Kickstarter games with minis, which are often delayed by months or years. Cthulhu Wars is a perfect example of a game that was delayed by almost two years, and hundreds of people had piggy-backed with KS backers to get their own copy.

It's always the case that piggy-backing with someone you don't know personally poses a risk, but it's not necessary to insult those who choose to do so.

LOL where does it say he piggybacked on anything? How do you know he didn't buy something the guy had and the guy just never shipped it? It's not a long post, did I some how miss that?

I fail to see how that makes an insulting and unhelpful comment appropriate. YMMV.

As it happens, he posted a similar question on another thread, and made it clear he had piggy-backed on the Myth Journeyman Kickstarter. So there's that.

Referencing a joke that's been around for nearly 30 years is called sarcasm, not insulting. And now I am supposed to know what he posted in another thread, in context to this thread, to ask a question about this said post? Really?

Sarcasm and Insulting are not mutually exclusive. But they are both equally unhelpful under the circumstances.

And no, you aren't expected to know. As I mentioned, it's not relevant, actually. I mentioned it as an FYI, since you asked how I (or the other commenters) know he didn't "buy something the guy had and the guy just never shipped it." That's how I knew.

It can still be insulting.

If you do not know the whole story you can always ask.

You were taking the piss, pure a simple.

Of course we cannot be all as wise as you, and many people actually trust their fellow man to do the right thing. I agree a year is a long time to wait, but then some people want to think this is a hobby filled with people who care about each others welfare, and not a bunch of self righteous shysters just out to con them.

He seemed to be a fairly stand up regular in trades, sells and purchases. He was also active in Secret Santa's and raising money auctions.

Then he dropped off completely in last December. Not a good sign overall, but it doesn't seem like someone who would stiff on a single purchase. It is indeed more ominous than anything, hope he's OK.

I did ask. Literally the first thing, then I made a joke. If you guys would get off your soap boxes you might of been able to see I can't do anything without context. If he never received an order was it paypal, a personal check, credit card. All of which have different options of him potentially dealing with it, not to mention states laws for personal transactions that could include small claims court. But i guess I should of not asked a clarifying question and just posted a frowny face, somehow inferred he meant piggybacking( which still has options of making it right) and said wow that sucks buddy. Be here you guys are getting upset over a 3 decade old popular country song and attacking me because there was no context for his post.

What you said

Quote:

So you did not ask him anything he had not already said (he said he waited a year in the OP).

Quote:

Thus you did not seek to clarify something you did not understand, you made a poor joke at someones expense (everyone else was able to figure out he made the purchase a (nearly) year ago, I find it hard to imagine this was so hard for you to figure out).

It was not helpful or constructive, it was dismissive. If you want to understand what you did, look at how you are reacting to people being dismissive of what you say.

If this is not the case and you really were unable to figure out the answer to the question you asked I apologize.

So everyone here is sticking with this being a post about him piggybacking without any hint what so every that's what he is talking about. And country music is offensive. The world is a strange place indeed. Instead of defending his honor that you feel was besmirched why not start a go fund me to get him his money back?
