He's taken the money and run.

Obvious scam was obvious. And hailingfrequency played host to it.

Not at all surprised. His behavior was "shady" at best. Where are the people who defended him on these boards? Zach included.

I feel bad for the people this guy conned. It's not like we didn't try to warn others (me, JimmyB76 and a few others). Xsnip3rX, thelasthallow and a few others involved with the so-called "BC2" project were actively abusive of the BC, Legacy and Armada communities (thou primarily the BC community).

A fellow community member was attacked on his STO fleet page by Xsnip3rX (one who previously had done modding work for BC), several community members from BC had their artwork "stolen" and "claimed" by the BC2 project, which resulted in among others a lengthy discussion on Intellectual Property rights (modders apparently have no rights to their own works, according to these shady con men).

I wish Zach would come to this forum and apologize for supporting this con man and his cohorts, but I'm certain that will never happen. Zach hasn't been around for months.

Darkthunder I would like to know how exactly you have gotten it into your head that I specifically supported this project over any other and/or defended it?

I do not really show a bias towards any specific project.  Please show me where I have supported this more than any other project.

Well, it's the only project to have its own dedicated sub-forum, so clearly it was supported over any other project.

A cursory glance would have shown this project to be a fraud. You're the site admin, and you are responsible for giving this con a platform by making HF its de facto forums.

Hailing Frequency has provided and always will provide limited hosting and sub-forum support for any fan game or mod project that requests it with the caveat being that endorsement of the project is neither implied or provided when doing so.

You will notice that the forum section in question has not been used by the project creator in quite some time. In fact, the author has not logged into this forum since 2013. 

Now that this has come to my attention and given the lack of usage, I will archive that sub-section.

Furthermore, it would seem that as of today, the project itself has been re-branded and is no longer associated with "Star Trek" at all.

You will note that this website has not provided any news coverage on the project in quite some time, whilst at the same time we continue to support other projects and endeavors. 

We always attempt to remain impartial in our coverage and will always attempt to do so.
