Announcement   Announcement : Goodbye To All
   posted by jorit2 on 24-Apr-2011 3:33:37 (16376 reads)
Hi All,

Just to mention, and for what it's worth, and it won't change anything I guess But maybe, just maybe, someone might be interested to know ...

I left the Amiga scene completely, never to look back. I also stepped down from Hyperion.

Nuff said

Take care,
Evert

Agreed, I'd like to know who he is and what the point of this political statement is about also?

@ Evert Carton

Who are you and what was your role at Hyperion and why so drastic to not only leave Hyperion, but the amiga scene as well in one foul swoop? If you are going to make such a big statement and exit we certainly deserve answers!

@cha05e90

You mean what politic about user claims ? If so, then in short: not stable updates, bad PR, bad informativity of what is going on and so on. But If you mean politic which do Evert in Hyperion : i do not know :) And i also in interest to know what he do exactly and what changes will be after he leave: to good side, or all will be even worse in compare as it now.

If Evert will answer there nothing (i.e. just make a topic without answers), then for me its all not that bad. But if he will explain everything and describe all that soap opera of "why/who/where/when/why", then we all can have our opinions after all.

take care.

P.S Just because you run from a car wreck, does not disolve you from any responsiblity..

Mod Note: This kind of thing is uncalled for and unnecessary.

Hm, how does it come that this news post from someone new "jorit2" (0 Posts) smells somewhat fishy? Late for April, 1st? Nevermind.

@ cha05e90

Don't know why Jorit2, perhaps he forgot the password to Jorit account?

Anyway, yes this can be considered as "not news", but, since Evert is or rather was a managing partner of Hyperion Entertainment VOF, I decided to approve it as news item.

Better this way, than the constant "who does what" regarding Hyperion, this way we at least know for sure Evert is not involved anymore.

Was Evert Carton not a major shareholder in Hyperion Entertainment?

So to me, that means that perhaps someone else is now major shareholder?

Consider that account as an "anonymous troll".

Seriously, we have requested several times to get him to put a name there for the sake of credibility, but no.
I think ZeroHero outed him some time ago though

I sometimes saw his name mentioned but I am sure I am not the only one who hasn't a clue who he is. Was he just a share holder or did he do something else?

Well, hopefully for the benefit of Amiga. I'm quite optimistic there.
