Admin Breakup Debacle

PirateCaptain

5,301 views

Soo, what a mess

Bad news: We lost 900$ we saved up and @Simplity is leaving
Good news: Rank is leaving and no data was lost or stolen.

I woke up yesterday and found out our paypal account all admins shared access to, had its password changed.
It didn't take long to find out it was Rank who changed it, because he also change the associated email to that same PayPal account which only he had access to.

After a bit of chatting with Rank it became clear it was an attempt on his side to demand a fixed 600$ monthly salary and he wanted to exert control over what I was able to use our paypal donations for.
This was totally inappropriate coming from a guy who rarely visits or works on this site, and has no involvement in the important day2day workings of the site. (His most important piece of work for pp was setting up the paypal account when I was homeless)

The main grief was of course money, mostly me buying takeaway and "funneling" money away as he put it (yes I did move money away because I saved them up away from Ranks reach, and boy am I happy I did so now)
The sad part in all this is Rank got the all money, all the DRM free games and a nice gtx970 + a VR Headset + god knows how many steam games and csgo skins, and Simplity got nothing.

Shortly after I kicked rank out, he tried to takeover this website by deleting my account and removing all content I had made, he made two new admin accounts to try secure him a backdoor, then he turned to facebook where he set our fb page to deleting.
None of his efforts helped him though, as we quickly rolled back forum to a safe state where I could login as the only person and start removing him and his uploads, which I no longer considered safe.

As a result of this I will remove all Simplity's works once they become outdated + the Unturned trainer is no longer a sale item, and we will just hold on to our payday 2 trainer and concentrate on creating the best forum for us all for now until the dust settles.

My will to work on this place has take a downturn from losing a friend I valued a lot, @Simplity was with me working on every project since the beginning and will be dearly missed.
I will do my best however to keep my chin up and keep this community running in the same spirit as always... free, anonymous and filled to the brim with all the best plugins and applications. 

Lesson learned, do NOT mix money and friendship..

Unless you can go to his house and kick his face in, do not trust a person with money.

Captain, if you get in contact with me I should be able to help, with getting the money back and securing the site with additional backups on my servers 100% secure and I can do a rundown to check common back doors?

 

I love working on legal cases such as these also and worked for small time servers and sites as somewhat of a Legal Representative.

 

Anyhow here for you guys! #FuckRank

Simplity is leaving because of the drama Rank has created.

I understand, all to well what you're going through, but what if we purchased the Unturned Trainer and thats all we wanted, I donated as well just to help out previous to this. Do we just loose completely what we had paid for? If its going to specifically be for PayDay2, what about the rest of us that don't have it?

Why would an admin suddenly want a higher salary? I mean unless you have worked him to the bone but since you clearly state that he didnt work that much, what made him want to do this?
