Finally back online....two weeks without the interwebs is not fun. Just wondering if you got my updated mailing address. I pm'd it to you before I moved but it could have been lost in the shuffle.
Not yours in particular, David. Thank you, but that particular problem isnt something you guys who paid should have to make up for, bruv.
Disposable, I did get it, but I'll probably be hitting you up, just to double check.
dsonik...I for one really appreciate you doing this run, ans feel honored that you picked my design....thanks for the updates
Hello fellow Hunters,
I know most of you are all waiting ‘patiently’ for your shirt to arrive. Trust me, I was too! Being that one of the designs was mine, I couldn’t wait to have a new TDH shirt and I was excited to know that a few of you would be wearing a TDH shirt I designed. That made me a happy hunter!!
BUT... as you can see by the pics, the shirt that I designed is NOT the shirt you will be receiving or the shirt that you have paid for. And NO, I had nothing to do with this.
Now I see that Sonik is upset that he got his ‘butt handed to him’ over the lack of the print and calling me out like I’m the bad guy at CV telling people my image was ‘destroyed’. Most artist I know would be upset too if they had done something and then when it was completed it looked different... especially when it was never mentioned to them or anyone else for that matter. Sonik... you should have never paid out of pocket for a printer to do anything to the artwork. If there was an issue with it then you should have contacted me and I would have fixed it. As for the print on the back... it was type, in one color just like you have it now... with the crossbones logo. So what was the problem there? One color, one plate... so there is no reason that should have changed.
compared to this...
I don’t know why you didn’t ask me to change or fix whatever problem the printer was having. It’s not like we weren’t talking through PM’s almost on a nightly basis. All you had to say was, ‘Dude, can you help me out and tweak the image a bit, the printers are trying to charge me?’ That’s it... problem fixed. But instead you did what you wanted, complain about the ‘out-of-pocket’ money and call me out on the boards like I’m the bad guy. People expect to get what they pay for. I mean, it’s the same feeling as if you bought a Fett helmet off someone on TDH and when it arrived at your house, you open the box and it’s a Stormtrooper helmet, it’s not what you paid for.... wouldn’t you be upset too? I really don’t care that you changed the color of the shirt, but to change the look of it without telling me or anyone else that spent money on them... is just wrong in my opinion. People paid money for a certain thing and they are being given/sent something different. I’d like to think that everyone on TDH has each others back... this is no different. I would have helped you no matter how long it took to get right. So, excuse me for being a little upset when I saw the image on the shirt changed.
This project sat around for a about a year, yes without anything happening with it. So you took it and ran with it. That’s awesome and we’re all glad you did. Like you said, life gets in the way a lot of times and people can’t do everything they want. So no one was able to get to this. Wether it be, work, wife, husband, kids, pets, sick or dying. Life happens... it’s not an easy task to do a project like this - I just did a shirt run for the Legion - so I know... we all know. We all understand there’s hiccups. So if you can’t do it, you can’t do it... no biggie. But don’t do it, then complain about it and throw other people under a bus.

Wow.... pot callin the kettle black much. Second of all, as far as that particular back image.... I NEVER said that was what I was going to use. Second off, the ONLY thing you had to pay for was shipping. So what exactly, do you have to complain about?
And again, I'm finished doing shirts.... period. Congrats, mission accomplished!
Well this just sucks all the way around
Dude... you are totally missing the point. The image that I submitted for the shirt was a TDH design. So I put 'The Dented Helmet' on the front and the TDH logo on back... THAT WAS THE POINT OF THE SHIRT! And I don't care if I paid for just the shipping... that's just me. What about the other 30 people that paid full price for something they're NOT getting. I don't think people would have wanted or paid for a new TDH shirt if it DIDN'T SAY TDH!
And I'm sorry, but what kettle am I exactly calling black? You did what you wanted to a shirt design that was not yours... the artist is upset about it and talks to the owner of the board. And you're mad because someone called you out on it? Really? Did you think it was ok to just take some ones artwork and do whatever you wanted to it and expect the person to just let it slide?
If you can't understand why I am more upset that TDH members are NOT getting what they paid for.... then it's a blessing that you're not doing anymore shirt runs.
Dude... people paid $25 for a shirt they're NOT getting... how hard is that to understand??
Wow..havent been on here a in a little bit...unfortunately Sonik, im going to have to agree with Dutch. I wanted the shirt because of the exact design, and the color of the shirt. the text and that it was a TDH shirt is what sold it for me. i LOVED the "where the hunt begins" phrase. The image originally posted was what i was expecting. Not a rectangle with the image in it without the text. What im seeing there, besides it not having the text, and it looking smaller than i expected, looks like a heat transfer. It very well may not be, but the way it is done, thats what it looks like. The green rectangle in the middle of the shirt, makes it look cheap. Certainly not what i paid $25 for. I could have taken the image myself from the site and heat transferred it to a shirt and it would look just like this, but with text! I also do not wear white shirts, so this is an all lose situation for me. i think Dutch is 100% right, and you should have just asked him to fix what needed to be fixed. Honestly i dunno what kind of printer this is, but ive done silkscreening and worked with printers before. Ive also done plenty of print ready computer work. Fonts dont need to be vectored. All he had to do was vector the image (which is one click in a program) and if the text got lost, just re-type it. Worsecase senerio, he would ahve needed the font from you/Dutch..the whole thing takes very little time. I dont know why this guy was trying to charge you so much for a simple alteration,that apparently he couldnt even do. ANY printer should know how to do that. Its pretty sad this guy coulndt do a simple thing, he may need to find a new line of work.
Now Sonik, Understand, i do appreciate what you tried to do here, and will not ask for a refund, youve been through enough, with all this, but i must say that when the shirt actually arrives ill probably only be wearing it to sleep. Pretty disappointed in how these turned out...really mutilated a great design.

Agree. Runs are a pain in the rear and always something seems to come up. But a notice of the change before the run was finalized to see if the members still wanted to proceed would have been the way to go. I have learned this from the runs I did for the squad and our garrison. It's a nightmare at times but communication is the main thing to keep up. Sometimes runs just fall through and sometimes they go great. But since I usually do official 501st related runs, anytime there is a change of anything you are expected to post it up right away. I mean the shirt works and no slight to you sonik but I IMHO I was excited about Dutches design and color scheme and like Voorhees said it looks odd the way it ended up coming out. Again no slight to you, I guess that was the printers deal. Also not sure of the printer you used, but I have heard where the printer puts something out that isn't what you ordered they will usually regrettably eat it and redo it correctly at no extra cost to you.
Hold on a second.... Who got a WHITE shirt? The shirt color was khaki, and that was WELL discussed prior to taking ANY payments. You know what, screw it, I fail.... I'll get the shirts out to those who ordered them, paid or unpaid. If you want a refund, then contact me. As funds become available, then I will get you your money. I will be putting my Fett up for sale soon, to help with paying for a new run of shirts and shipping. Then everyone will be happy and rid of me. Seems like everytime I try to help, I get slapped in the face, so maybe this isnt where I belong......
At this point I feel like I'm being lumped in with Starfortress and Evolution and its making me sick to my stomach. I have entirely too much negative stuff going on in my life right now to be able to deal with being burned at the stake at the one place I enjoy being...

i think your 2nd post said it would be a jolly dent on the back and i do remember khaki too . i know i've been on u the hardest about getting them out but i for sure dont want u to sell your fett. it just a t-shirt . wont ask for refund.
well dude....if it costs me 30 bucks for you to keep your fett....its money well spent..don't bother shipping my shirt....not going kick a guy when he's down....good luck buddy..
I appreciate your effort on this project and while I would have enjoyed the first design much better as I really wanted something to reflect being a member of the TDH, I'm in no way going to ask for a refund either.
PLEASE don't sell your fett over something like this. C'mon, how many times have people dropped money on this hobby (BF or some other costume), and when they got the item either something better comes out that you buy (and you're out the money for the "older" piece), or you're just not happy with the item and subsequently go and find something better.
I'm not worried over $25 and from the lessons learned from this project I'm sorry you won't be doing anymore shirt runs because like anything else, projects get easier every time you do another one (ie, people improving on armor or helmets or paint schemes).
Happy or not, if $25 is breaking your bank then how do you have the money to be in this hobby anyway? Collectively I don't see ruining some other persons lively hood and family life over a matter of $25 is worth my time or energy.
The advice you've given me offline and on here is worth $25 (or more), IMHO just because it's saved me time and money in either not buying something I wouldn't have liked or the effort in researching it so I could spend more time doing other things.
Just my .02 but I felt compelled to post something.
I don't this is what anyone wants, even those who are the most frustrated and outspoken. Here is the long and short of it from a site perspective. You went out on a limb in an effort to help the site (which is still greatly appreciated) but due to miscommunication and misunderstanding (some of which I take blame for) you fell a short on execution. Does this make you a bad person or someone who is to be shunned here at TDH? Absolutely not. You are not the first person to have a run go south. Historically, there are two ways people handle situations like this; either they allow a mishap like this to make them feel like a victim and they slink away with their tail between their legs, embittered and angry, or they admit they blew it, correct what they can, and move on to the next project. Those who choose the former route tend to end up becoming TDH-bashers who go around to other sites being angry and vengeful and seeking like company. The latter, well, a lot of the latter are still here, actively participating, enjoying the site and even becoming more involved in the hobby. While I won't name names, there are people right now on the site who are revered as "rock stars" who have had far greater blunders than this and they have weathered it and even come out on the other side looking even better.
I say all this because I feel like you are starting to head down that former path and it is simply not necessary. As I said, while there was clearly a misunderstanding or expectations, I still appreciate your effort and will tell you that there is no reason to sell your Fett or make a dramatic exit. This community is very forgiving and willing to move on, if you are.
Sorry, the color is my bad...it looks white in that picture that was posted. i honestly forgot it was supposed to be khaki.
I didnt, and will not ask for a refund, im not attacking you bro, just stating it sucks what happened. I see it more a printer error than yours. It could have been a simple fix but the person wasn't capable and that just sucked. yea you could have done things differently, but hey it could have been worse. whats done is done not THAT big a deal Lord knows i wouldnt want ANYONE to sell their fett for anything like this. Beleive me i know all about runs going south.
I make Vader helmets...had 10 orders, got them done in the 6 months i said and then summer hit, and because this run i decided to offer them in resin rather than fiberglass...they warped due to extreme heat here. So i now have to do all 10 all over again....in fiberglass...so i know how it feels to want to throw it all away, but dont man, your a cool dude and just got hit with a lil bad luck with a run.
i dunno if this was directed at me, but for the record, Batmann539, $25 isnt breaking my bank, which is why i am not asking for a refund, that and Sonik has been through enough with this run.
Ami disappointed about how they came out, yes, but i didnt mean to make it seem its all Soniks fault. I still greatly appreciate his efforts in these runs.

I, personally, am still looking forward to getting these shirts and wearing them. They are t-shirts. Not tailored Italian suits. If they look a bit different due to run changes, se la vie. At least I will have a couple of Fett shirts, finally.
Thanks again, Sonik.
pm sent on the eastwood shirts I ordered not to throw a wrench into this at all....
Sonik, you're a great guy; don't sell your suit dude. You are a great part of this community. Let's all move forward.
Especially don't sell the suit!!! You will regret it!!! Sold mine twice and it took me 8 years to get it back.
Thank you for the quick response and the professionalism with which you are handling the confusion!!! You were accommodating with me when I asked about payment issues and it was greatly appreciated.
Oh he wont be selling it I know at least two grown ups that will kick him if he did

My apologies if you thought I was taking a cheap shot at you; Not at all.
Also, just now looking at your avatar/info and saw you're in Bozeman. I graduated from college at MSU-Billings.

Cool batmann539, i wasnt sure,..but its all good.
Sonik, dont sell your Fett bro!
Did these all go out yet? Because I haven't gotten mine yet.
Paid 6/16, I have not recieved mine either.
I think we've been pretty fair here.....
would like a update who has been shipped, patiently waiting.
Sonik said to let you guys know hes without internets at the moment...and he did send some out recently and didnt know whos off the top of his head, and the kids were trying to run amuck so he had to go...hope u guys get your shirts soon
Havent gotten mine yet either..mebbe it was in that last shipment. Thanks for the update Fett4real
you think i might get mine this week ??
I think we have had enough time for these to go out. It's been 3 months today that I sent payment.
BP Oil SPill.............................87 Days
Procurement of T-Shirt............91 Days
We appreciate your early efforts with this, but this is REALLY rediculous. Let this be a lesson to anyone considering a "Run". Don't collect $$ until you have the material IN HAND.
We have been MORE THAN PATIENT WITH YOU, and recieved nothing but excuses. I have (2) kids as well, TWINS to boot, and I would have taken a day off of work to get this straightened out in one shot. It's a simple trip to the PO. Please don't take this personal, just make it right.
Package the shirts after the kids go to bed, then ship the next day. Do you even still have the money to ship them, or has it been spent ? I know I sound like a jerk, but I do respect that you attempted this run and put up with our grief, but it's sounding like a money issue, not a time issue.
Pleas send them, and update post # 1 with who has been sent shirts. If you don't have the internet at home working, go to the library, or a friends house.
Please conclude this so that we can all start fresh and be happy. If they've been sent out and not received yet, awesome !
Last edited by Timmer; Sep 18, 2010 at 6:43 PM.
Any word on the situation with those still waiting on these?
Nothing, Nada, Zippo, Zilch.
Still nothing here as well.
Nothing here as well.
mabe this week ???????
We need a resolution to this. Immediately.
PM sent to dsonik1 calling a refund- been patiently waiting for more than three month since payment, but no communication, no answer....
Nothing here. Not really interested in the design either, it was not what I payed for. I would like a refund.
Wow. I don't know what to say. Dsonik I think we would just like a little update. I know you are without internet at home, but there are plenty of ways to get on a computer and post a quick message. I am not one to get real bent out of shape about things like this, but it has been a long time considering some of the posts saying that all the shirts were going to be going out. Please let us know what is going on.
Ok. I just saw that you were on TDH on the 15th of September and did not even take the time to update us. If I don't hear something soon I will be seeking a refund through my credit card. No offense, but I just don't think this is fair to those that paid in a timely fashion.

Same here, if you've been on here and didn't bother to comment, that's just not right. I don't know your situation, but it seems like when things get hairy for a "supplier of items", their access to the internet goes missing. Too convenient. Try a friend, the library, etc. Maybe you really have no way to access us, it's possible, but you were just here on the 15th. I'm going to give it a few more days then ask for a refund as well, sorry.
That was not sonik that was me jumping on for his FS thread trying to raise funds his wife actually lost her job a week ago, and a few other things still without internets. I know hes trying to get things straight with these but hes having a few issues
I have honestly heard enough about why he can't get these out. His internet outage, child situation or his wife's job situation should not prevent him from sending out t-shirts that he has collected money in full for + shipping. 95 days is plenty of time to make it to the post office. If he can't get online, he needs to get a message to someone with exactly what is going on and when he is sending these out. How many people even actually received a shirt???
I wish him well, and I hope his home issues get resolved the best that they can, BUT.....
This thread should be a "STICKY", to show how NOT to do a "RUN" of an item, and how NOT to reslove issues.....
I've been late on orders, I've screwed MANY orders up, i've had people dissatisfied with my stuff, but i've ALWAYS been able to RESOLVE each and every one of them. Whether it be re-shipping, resizing, overnighting a new shipment, refunds, whatever....I try my best to do what's right.
Lesson learned yet again, DO NOT ACCEPT ANY MONEY UNLESS YOU HAVE THE MATERIALS YOU'VE PROMISED IN HAND......
Thanks Fett4Real for mentioning that it was you that logged onto his account. I take back my comment about being upset that he logged on and didn't update. I should have had my info correct before I stated that.
However, I still think he needs to do the right thing and update everyone. I have done runs of items before and I didn't take payment until I was ready to ship. That keeps the tension down. I also try to update people involved many times so everyone knows where the run stands. Even though this isn't a ton of money that I am out it is still bothersome to see where this has gone.
Did you log in to his account yesterday Fett4Real because it shows his last activity was yesterday? This has just turned into total avoidance it appears. I looked and a grand total of 8 out of 30+ people have had their shirts shipped. I looked back through the posts and multiple times it says that more were being shipped out. What does that mean? One person a day. I also can't help but notice that those that shipped were people he hand picked to ship to.
Nope wasnt I, not sure what he's doing with this thing now. I hope you guys get sorted out with this sooner than later.
It looks like he miraculously managed to communicate with another TDH member last night. He somehow found the inner strength to ship out a helmet worth $500. Is our $$ not worth the same effort?
C'mon, be a man and step up.....
Looks like we're getting screwed on this. I ordered both, so it's a $50 lesson to not be nice about these things and let the 45-day Paypal Dispute deadline pass. Whoever filed the claim earlier and got dumped on for doing it is looking like a genius now.
Yep I take back my critique of them. They were smart. I was dumb.
Well ive just about given up on the thought of ever receiving the shirt. Im going to now ask for a refund, we will see what happens.
I guess I don't understand if the shirts are done why they haven't gone out. I would hate to think that only a couple shirts were done and roughly $1300 was pocketed. If it's a matter of the shirts are done and the money used to ship was used for something else, that 's a bad way to do business.
I'm starting to think the money was spent and now that his wife is out of work he can't afford to ship them out.
I'm single, with a house and on a paycheck to paycheck budget, so I feel your pain, We probably seem like an ungrateful, horrible bunch of people, and maybe your circumstanced are very dire, but like we've all said, the money was sent.
They are T-shirts for crying out loud. There is zero comparison to waiting for parts. I've never even waited this long for a part. If that is true about you selling an expensive helmet and being on the boards well, I don't even have anything appropriate to say here.
We can be on here complaining for ever ( haven't we already ) and it still does no good. dsonik, I'm still willing to believe you're a decent guy who is maybe going through a hellish time right now, but look at it from our point of view. We ordered shirts, we paid for them, they weren't even printed as advertised yet we're willing to take them anyway, and you're still giving us the shaft.
Just please explain yourself at the very least ! I think we're owed that much. If you can't do that, you have no business being a member of this site that has so many fine, honest people. Poor Gabe from Evolution Props is getting a hard time and I've received two nice items from him, in a very reasonable time frame.
Man up and just let us know where you stand. Please.
If anyone would like to contact SONIK outside of TDH, please shoot me a PM. I have his email and FB info. Since he won't stand up here, Maybe he can be pursuaded to respond via other means.
In his thread in the Cargo Hold, where he sold his Helmet for $500, dsonik says that he is raising the funds to buy a Sith Stalker costume that was offered to him recently. I know that the buyer sent him the $500 last week, and was hoping it would be used to ship these out. Looks like we all might have funded a Sith Stalker, though. Awesome.
This isn't about the money now, it's about this guy being an @-Hole.....
Here's another tidbit of info. He's claimed to be on hard finacial times since his girlfriend was out of work right? He claimed THAT in one of his posts I believe. Well, I have his girlfriends FB info as well, and she has invited everyone to come and visit her at her WORK PLACE while she is there working. Isn't that nice??
This guy's FULL of BS and should be taken to task.
Fett 4 Real, why don't you call you buddy for us since you have his personal account info, and are in touch with him?? Help us get our money too, for the good of the TDH community.
tried that already havent talked to him in a fw days after the last post about not being on his account. Will try again bud, but dont know why he hasnt shipped the shirts to u guys really
Maybe you can also ask him how many people stopped in to see his girlfriend at her work as well....
At this point, i'd actually respect him saying, "I screwed up, I took everyones $$ and spent it before I could make it back....."
If enough of us contact his Girlfriend on FaceBook and "Convince" her to talk some sense into him, myabe THAT would work??
****, I spent $123 on this, I ordered four t-shirts. I can't afford to spend that amount on nothing.

Filing a claim sounds like a good idea. It may not get us anywhere, but at least it's a way to try to solve this through proper channels. If we all do it, maybe Paypal will take notice.
If you paid more than 45 days ago, you can't file a Paypal claim.
I looked up "making a claim" I didn't see any limitation like this. I'll have to look again.
If we can't go through paypal , I suggest we ask for him to be banned and let the other costume boards know as well. I don't see why he should be able to rip us off and still be able to enjoy the hobby from these sites.
It's not so much the dollar amount, it's the bad attitude.
You still can start a pp-claim, butr your "buyers protection" is lost after 45 days....
fbi internet fraud div. would be the way to go . i was going to file with pp way back but caught flack from u guys so did not . my gut told me to but figured he would come throught . mabe he still will . i order 3 shirts . 1 eastwood has anyone even got that one . have seen no pics of it. iam giving it one more week to hear something. its not but $75 but it was my $75 . probley wont get back but think hes some kind of cop . can't look good for him .

His member page says he's a "Protection Officer". My first guess is he's a rent-a-cop. or some kind of security guard, mall-cop, etc. He may be an actual law enforcement person but not wanting to be so specific, which is understandable. I went through this with GreenGriffon over a year ago, he scammed a bunch of people for a while but I received my cape eventually.
Just ban him and get it over with and that way no one else will have to deal with him. Look at how much we post over complaining about this guy, he's not even worth it, he's nerf poodoo.
I ordered 5 eastwoods one for each of my family and no I have not gotten mine...
Last edited by batmann539; Sep 26, 2010 at 7:56 PM.
wonder if credit card protection plan covers it .
would rather get shrits . i'll even take another sad story . just get the shrits out.
We don't really have many options here. I'm going to go the FaceBook route. Since he's gone off the radar, let's contact his "significant other" on Face book. She WILL accept your friend request. Here name is: Mary Elizabeth Melia and she has posted regular photos of her and Sonik having a grand ol' time. Sonik is even intiving people out to meet him at random places too. Maybe she's not aware of the type of person that he really is. I BEG ALL O FYOU THAT HAVE BEEN SCREWED, post on HER Facebook......
I just dont know why the guy can not get on here and at least say something heck anything at all. I guess our comments on the design mess scared him away.... :/ Shame people can't take constructive criticism anymore. The times have sure changed and people seem to be getting WAY to sensitive.
I've basically written it off, first time i have been screwed over on here, of course i still would rather have the shirts.
Well, I followed through with my last attempt. I have unequivically caught him in (2) lies.
1) He claimed that he had NO internet service.
- he posted an invite to a bar a week ago on FB
2) he fell on hard times b/c his girlfriend lost her job
-She posted an invite 2 days ago, for her friends to visit her at work, on FB.
Total Lies and BS.
I called this guy out on Facebook, to his significant other, without profanity or threats. I posted on HER wall that SONIK is a liar and a thief. I also went into some detail about how he's ripped off over a dozen people, for over $1,000. That pretty much garauntees that i won't be getting a t-shirt or a refund. If nothing else, he's gonna have to have a pretty embarassing conversation his lady. And hopefully, a few people will see him for what he is. I'm not sure what constitues a ban, but it's pretty clear to me. It's all up to the mods, unfortunately they have to get involved for that sort of thing. My aplogies to them for this headache....
Last edited by Lucksy31; Sep 26, 2010 at 8:32 PM.
Wonder if his lady knows what he did or not? Should be interesting. wonder what happens to your FB post.
Hahahaha *** he's wearing the shirt in her profile pic! This is just insulting
Edit: Wait my bad, I think that's Terry (BooBoo)
Im not gonna comment on this, but I did talk to him and got an message to pass on...In response to what can I tell the guys in the TDH shirt thread,
"Just that Im trying to get it all out and that life has taken a royal shin on us and Im sorry as hell."
Lucksy I dont think you realize that was kinda out of line what and how you went about contacting mary on FB and her "job" is not her old job its a quick job after being laid off her old one.
I don't believe it's out of line to try to contact this guy any way possible when he has chosen to avoid us. We were pooped on, plain and simple. Maybe not intentionally, but it still happened.
The money was sent, shirts were made, after that, it takes very little time and effort to package T-shirts and mail them especially considering they were PAID FOR !!!
Where did that money go ?? Life deals us all a hard time, I'm going through one myself, but I'm not letting it affect my work or hobbies.
The kids must sleep at some point, work on it then. "I'm trying to get it all out", Trying how? I would just like to know where the hang up is. The shirts don't fit in the package ? What could it possibly be ? Sonik, please just send these things, it can't be that difficult, it's like mailing a letter for cryin' out loud.
Just send the stuff and put this topic out of it's misery already.

How does he have time to goto bars, and invite all of his friends to join him at at the bar, but NOT have time to send our stuff or refunds? If i'm down on my luck and hard for cash, the LAST place i'm gonna go is a bar. How is he posting on FaceBook when he's stated that he is "Without internet access"?
If he actually comes through in one way or another, I'll be THE first apologize for choosing that route if he was offended. But, I guess time will tell. If he would like to conact directly, privately, i'll be happy to listen with an open ear.
I hate to say it but.....
That's awesome ! And pretty much true.
Still no response, no shirt and no refund - this sucks...
this really is a SHAME. Sonik was one of the first people to welcome me to this board. I don't know what the deal is but I hope that he turns things around and makes everything right with everybody!!
that would be nice. don't think its going to happen .
I just left a message on Sonik Achee's and Mary's Facebook pages just asking for my shirt or a refund. I expect silence in return as I'm sure she knows all about her guy's dealings.
I'm at a loss to comprehend what goes through Sonik's mind, if anything. I am frustrated at the fact that there is no justice in this. Basically, I guess you can pretty much just scam anyone and get away with it. I'm going to try paypal, but it sounds fruitless going that route.
I think I'll start a t shirt run, each shirt will be $99.99 and just send me the money, you'll get your shirt pretty soon....
he's done giving excuses . has not posted in this thread for over a month. my dads neighbor is fbi in the terrorism task force in mississippi. i know don't make much sense to me either. he said if we have over $1000 in fraud he can make something happen. not sure what we got . have not done the math. but i bet with the grith belts it is . pm me your info and what your out . we'll see what happen . if ya'll want . i'm out like $73 .
he said they (internet frad div)would give him chance to make it right. if not we probly won't get our $ back but won't be nice for him .
i hate to do it and realy don't want to . so i'll let the fett heads decide
Well, it's the begining of a new month. Maybe they'll be a NEW excuse for October that we can all enjoy. Maybe he needed an emergency hysterectomy....
According to his profile Dsonik hasn't been on since 9/22..................
I realize I'm still fairly new here and all but when I signed up for this shirt run I did so under, the apparently false, understanding that dsonik was an upstanding member of this community. I also realize that it has to suck for him to be consistently bashed on here but when all is said and done his opportunity to man up and do us the common courtesy of an explanation are long since passed. I know according to the rules of TDH we're on our own as far as taking our chances purchasing anything through the site is concerned but I think it's long past time for some input from the admins. In my opinion dsonik should be banned. There is no way he has not had the opportunity in the last month (or more!) to get online and at least offer an explanation. If he was incapable for whatever reason to do so then his wife should have logged on to let us know....there's just no excuse anymore, I'm asking for a ban, not that that makes any difference anymore either. My 2Ē
My guess is already on here under another name. So if he's baned he still be here until someone figures it out. Bet all the old timers all got there shirts. It just the newbes and average joes that did not.
Gutted. Can't afford to throw money away like this. Each and every instance that something like this happens not only destroys my faith in humanity, but kills my love of costuming too.
Thank you so much for stealing my money.
Well if it helps on the newbie question, I did not get mine. I am waiting for my shirt, and my 4 year old sons but nothing yet. I have had dealings with Son1k before, and I really like the guy, so it is a shame this has happened. I did have more faith in him, but seems it was misplaced.
Looks like I will have to get my shirt done myself. Can anyone help me with the graphic for the Eastwood shirt?
I'm in the minority I received a tshirt. I'm not an old time board member. I think the only reason I got it was because I paid promptly for a girth belt and tshirt. I had to fight to get the girth belt, eventually both were shipped together, which was a bit of a jip cause I'd paid for two lots of postage.
I'm shocked by his attitude as if it's our fault, he's taken money, spent it then realised he'll never be able to pay it back, or purchase new parts.
I only put my name on a list if I can afford it, pay immediately or have prior agreement - before scheduled payment date.
What I expect in return is honesty and prompt service. It's a simple. The best members I've dealt with here are Woodman, Serenity and Jango Wes - amazingly professional people.
What we need is a rating / reliability v goods as advertised system. People need to know who they can really trust.
** end of rant **
Not an oldtimer but have been here long enough...and my design was used, did get my shirt. As for the new user, the Mods can catch sock puppet accounts by IP address......if not permanent ban the at least a temporary till this mess is cleared up....
Ive been here for a while as well, and i got nothing. I may look into having the "hunt begins" shirt done for us,if its ok with the creator of the design.
