I think we need admin approval for GB. Be great if we can get more people and they can coordinate it.

So we have:
  • Espejo9200
  • Butthead2176
  • gutter
  • ndrr13
  • LazerSpade
  • teaeye
  • xfan10

That is a total of 7 people...divide by 300...$42 each. It would be great if we could get a few more on here to drop the price a bit. I tried to message an admin, but had no luck. Perhaps someone else can check.

Gutter contacted 3 and there was no response. So so far, there is no objection. I think we've gone beyond due diligence here.

Honestly, I think we should play it safe so we don't get the ban hammer. How do you contadt an admin? I know they didn't allow photography tuts if they didn't have any thing to do with CG or Retoughing, but Clay Cooks tut is on lighting and retouching with Jordan Hartley. If we can get them to see that there is an emphasis on retouching we might get the okay.

There have been tutorials by RGGEDU and FStoppers that didn't specifically state "retouching" in the title but were approved for GB. The RGGEDU Car Photography was recently approved for GB, maybe we can check which admin they contacted to get this going?

Thumbs up

So can we get an admin to chime in and give us an okay or a no go? Watched one of Clays FB videos today and this tut will be an amazing addition to the CG Persia library.

Clay is amazing. I've been watching his Youtube videos over the past year under his First Person Shooter series. This tut will definitely up a lot of people game. We NEED this.

$20 each

Left a message for an Admin on IRC, waiting for a reply. I agree with what other users said. I will wait for approval first. I would like an admin to moderate and work as escrow.

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be coming to fruition. I'm going to have to withdraw my pledge and put it towards other endeavors. Good luck fellas.

I messaged the same mod yesterday for a follow up. Hopefully I will get a response soon.

---------- Post added at 02:07:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:06:16 PM ----------

Still no response from the Mod. Looks like we've contacted 4? What do you guys want to do?

Haven't asked him that! I informed gutter about talking to theChurch to see it that works out. This doesn't seem to be leading anywhere. Does it usually take this long to review a course?

I just PM'd the Sysop. Hopefully we'll be able to move forward soon.

And if this does move forwards, Gutter, as far as I know this site does not do escrow. You need to either decide to handle the funds are choose someone else who feels comfortable in doing it.

I messaged theChurch and had not heard back from him. If someone else wants to handle funds like xfan10, that is fine for me. I say we wait one more day and then go on with it.

I understand community policy in regards to groupbuys, but I have made an attempt to contact every admin I can with no luck. I have sent messages to N☭x, ツ, theChurch, all with no response. I am out of options at this point.

I PM'd the Sysop, ツ, yesterday, as well. I'm also now in touch with superjocx and he is now attempting to get approval on our behalf and he has also kindly offered to handle funds if everyone is OK with it. He has ran 2 recent successful GB's so I'm good with that if you all are. Lets see if he can an approval in the next day or so.
