  2. So CindaQuest Pony Fest has a terrible name, terrible OC, a terrible website (that isn't even complete yet,) and terrible spelling and grammar? I have never been this confident in a first year con before.

    2. This is the Pony fandom were talking about here with the exceptions of NMND and EFNW no 1 really knows what they are doing when it comes to cons, especially Bronycon its just a money farm disguised as a ponycon.

    3. I know some of the people working for both of the SC conventions, and I can tell you already that CindiQuest was made out of spite- people are already jumping ship from it and some of the other cons are denouncing it.

  5. SC are scams, They have no info other then date and place but yet they are ok to take peoples money. Definition of a scam kids

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think you know the definition of a scam, given that you seem to think that everything new is a scam. While CindiQuest is definitely sketchy as a result of its spiteful nature, it should be noted that Palmetto actually booted the creator of CindiQuest after a streak of criminal activity and bad attitude from him. Note that CindiQuest hopped around NC before settling on the exact same date and state as Palmetto had previously settled on.

      Also, what pony convention have you seen that had a full guest list an entire year before launch? If you still think it's a scam, I'd recommend you watch it for a while before you think about putting money down while they work with investors and solidify their guest list.

    2. And this guys is CJ. .. Head master of scam empire^^^

      Delete
    3. Actually I'm not CJ- I hate that guy's guts after he scammed some of my friends for free work and then tried to extort others to let them get their domain back. I always use a contract, something that CJ never will. If I ever meet CJ irl, I will have to resist the urge to smack him and his slandering ass. Trust me, I know CJ and he is basically incapable of making a coherent sentence or using spellcheck.

      And if you're wondering, I have not been paid by PPC because I'm not fucking working for them- all I want is to work on my own stuff and hopefully get some artist alley tables at various conventions.

      Delete
    4. (one of the artist that worked for him)
      CJ did not scam us we volunteered our time to work for the con and him
      there is a difference between volunteering and stealing
      he would of paid commission prices if he wished to do so but were were nice enough to volunteer our time
      then this stuff happened so he pulled the plug
      again if you knew CJ personally hes a nice guy (i went to his school)

      Delete
    5. He has refused to pay commissions while at the same time asking people to donate for his server after he once again fucks up his finances by commissioning a third-party artist to make something personal rather than keeping an account balance. I stopped doing work for him after he failed to pay me for a project and he went on to bug me for more free work, then bullshit happened where he held a domain hostage and then tried to file a trademark on Palmetto Ponycon after he had relinquished its domain. You might know him as a nice guy irl, but he's unprofessional to say the last when it comes to online interactions.

      Delete
    6. im going to call bull shit on that last comment
      if he wants something he will pay like he does any other commission he gets
      the only thing he had commission was that picture above
      he has not commissioned anything else since that picture so your statement is a flat lie

    7. You clearly don't know anything of his finances if you think he's only ever commissioned one image ever...

    8. he pays his commissions end of story now quit trying to start a lie
      ~Wave2Clan

      Delete
    9. You're the ignorant one here. He owes a few hundred dollars between several people for their services/borrowed money. Nobody who deals with him anymore will work without full or at least 50% up-front payment anymore because he'll say he likes something, then dodge important questions.

      He clearly doesn't know how art commissions work.

      Delete
    10. Thanks i know i am ignorant
      all that is a lie a straight up lie so you can get people to not trust him
      how about you ask his commissioners

    11. We've already clearly established that he lives a bit of a double life when it comes to certain activities. Can we just fucking drop it and learn from the situation, hopefully fix it?

      Delete
    12. you can say that he lives in a double life
      evil vs good then i can agree with that
      but he is only evil when some one pisses him off and seeks revenge in a non harmful way

  6. CindiQuest is NO MORE stop bashing they don't exist our main focus is getting rid of PalmettoPonyCon

    we already know they lack a website
    lack info
    and lack activity
    all we can do is continue to screw them over by passing this article around to the other Con Chairs of every known pony convention out there

    that will surely kill PalmettoPonyCon

    Replies
    1. Hey, just thought I'd let you know that I'm actually an acquaintance of the artist who designed that mascot, although I'm not actually associated with the con itself. While it is *terrible* juxtaposition with the flooding in SC, you might be interested to know that the artist actually lives in SC and wanted to draw a seapony anyway well before Juoquin hit the area. Fortunately she stayed safe during the storm, although I'm sure it wasn't fun being cooped up in there.

      Regardless of what you think of the convention itself, you have to admit that it was incredibly unfortunate accidental timing. As much as I'm sure they like their new mascot drawing, I bet they've got their foot in their mouths with the timing.

    2. Sweets the clan already know its you no need to hide your self behind the anonay tag
      but still some people may take that to offense and worry more
      South Carolina is not getting Federal Aid that's how bad it is down there

      ~Wave

      Delete
    3. I'm not Sweets, nor am I CJ or any of the other "usual suspects". I'm not affiliated with the convention but I do know some of the people involved well enough to have a better ear than most of the people bitching in the comments. I know that the weather damage really sucks, and regardless of what people are saying, the venue still did take the down payment, although that might wind up being returned if their damage is too bad. I do know that not a single ticket has been sold, which means that the money provided for the down payment has come from either funds raised internally, or from private investors.

      Also, I love how you're accusing people of making sock puppets when it's pretty obvious that CJ's making his own sock puppets. What business does AudioWaveDasher have criticizing anything anyway?

      ~FineTune

      Delete
    4. i can tell you why a single ticket has not been sold
      ~Prices are too high
      ~People think the con is a scam
      ~The con is already blacklisted
      ~The con is very well known for drama and people don't like to deal with a con that has too much drama

      ~Wave2

      Delete
    5. I just checked their prices, and the 3-day pass is actually about average for conventions in general. Granted, I've never been to a pony convention so those might be cheaper across the board, but it's certainly cheaper than the "normal" conventions I've been to of similar anticipated sizes. They could definitely do to lower the price of the single-day tickets to reflect the 3-day tickets though.

      As for drama and questions as to whether or not it's a scam, that's largely CJ's fault, who is no longer with the convention after everybody working in it got pissed at him. I know for a fact that he's been spreading rumors, as he has done for a long time and is finally being outed for it.

      I don't know much about their finances, but I do know that 90% of what I've seen posted about Palmetto PonyCon in the past few days is nothing more than speculation. Hold off on buying prereg tickets if you want and suggest that others do the same- that's common sense with any preorder. However, all I'm seeing is a witch hunt.

    6. CJ did not get kicked out he was forced to step down by Ty and L9
      just by the way he ran things yes he runs things like shit who gives a fuck
      his personality is amazing
      and Ty has a bad rep with a few other people ie PVL

      ~Wave2

      Delete
    7. Once again, speculation, not facts.

      I was actually there when the "coup" happened and nearly everybody involved(I was just listening in), including his station's staff, wanted him gone for doing stuff like micromanaging and horrible grammar in negotiations with venues. Idgaf about what you're saying about Ty, but my experience with CJ has been far less than stellar, even in non-professional contexts. He's petty and homophobic(at least online anyway), and frequently engages in legal fuckery despite his complete lack of knowledge of contract and IP law. I'm a little surprised he hasn't been arrested or sued yet.

      Delete
    8. I'm sure he's an okay person irl, but I'd certainly not work under him any more than I already have- money and attention seem to taint everything when it comes to him. Even if he means well, he's got a long way to go as far as maturing goes.

    2. After being blacklisted I don't think anyone wants to go... you can thank your little friend CJ and maybe in part of me messing with him for your potential con to go sour next time be more public about it and not have your website be so lacking with information

      Delete
    3. Wait, did you just say you *wanted* to get it blacklisted before anybody had even made speculations? You do realize that there's not gonna be much information an entire year before a 1st year convention, right? Anybody who knows anything about running an event knows that the planning phases have the least information and lowest engagement, which would make sense for the website to be only partially done- it's pretty obviously not a wordpress theme.

    5. Nope. All I said was the con got blacklisted due to your little friend and all I was doing was messing around with him which made him look like a joke and because of this and his persistence with that con that is non existent... He pretty much gave your con a bad rep also too add the main admin in the SC brony group thought he could make a con a few months back called canterlina but that fail epicly thus make me doubt this con but again the messager ruined the con end of story

    6. You DO realize posting a small snippet of a PRIVATE conversation could be considered a breach of privacy? And that so much information is talked about through Skype calls that posting the chat regardless is a skewed source to back up your argument with, regardless.

    8. I have to agree with Sweets on this one- whether or not an NDA was signed, sharing stuff posted in a group chat is a dick move and a huge breach of privacy. A snippet that small is basically useless, especially if the group chat is compartmentalized like it should be. If I were to go through just about anybody's chat logs, I could find something that looks very bad out of context, possibly even use the lack of context to flag somebody as a criminal in the least credible way possible.

      As for you, Wave. Anybody who goes around deliberately trying to start drama is too petty for respect- that's just some Mean Girls shit right there.

    14. Unlike you, I never said that I didn't care. My dedication is minimal, but you're all over the place in these comments while I've just posted from the "mean girls" on in this thread. I just think that your complete disregard for English makes your argument look increasingly childlike, not that your content is much more mature or knowledgeable.

      You've done nothing but call people liars(while making wild accusations yourself), openly admit that you were going to spread rumors, and make fun of people. I have been given absolutely no reason to believe anything you say(including your screen name), and absolutely every reason to not believe any further accusations you make. I'm probably not going to Palmetto Pony Con(for travel reasons, not necessarily the accusations), but I will absolutely investigate some of this stuff when I'm bored enough and when there's some legitimate information available instead of another anon's musings.

While that is something that CJ tends to do, I can say with certainty that he is not a con chair of Palmetto Pony Con because we've already established that someone else is(I believe others were saying Ty and L9) and that he's no longer even with them after a quick look at their twitters.

      "Cj is just a fucking dumb ass. Trying to "fly low" so that no one knows you are the con chair. I don't know what else says Scam but that."

      CJ is not con chair anymore for CindiQuest (now disbanned) nor PalmettoPonyCon (soon to be disbanded)
      he is actually quite happy that he is not running a con
      and the reason he flies low is because that's what he does no one knows where he is form time to time
      its basically away for him to lie low until this shit storm dies down

      That of course isn't to say that CJ's not terrible at scheming, just that this is accusation is actually almost too stupid to be legit."

Sounds about right- on the normal Internet, if you can't be searched, you can't really have much influence unless you're actually the "illuminati"(which would have no interest in revealing itself as an orgy of asshats). Deep Web is not nearly the same thing. I think the reason that HN hasn't made an article yet is because literally nothing has happened other than Wave making an ass of himself and pretending to be CJ's friend before getting caught and going on a little "evil laugh" schpiel.

  10. Also a little info, after talking to both the head of pr and someone from there staff (that also told me that she was going there next week to get measurements) they both assured me that the convention center was reserved and a down payment was put on it. After calling the con 2 times one two days again and one time today. They had told me both times that nothing was reserved for those dates, and nothing has been put down and signed. So can add providing false info to that. When I contacted one of the people in charge about it was left without an answer. But awesome part it was skype so you could see him trying to make up a response and then just going up.

    1. To be honest, I think the best time to register for a convention is like 2 months before the event. That way everything's all solidified and stuff. If Palmetto's still around, there should be a lot more information then.

      Personally, I probably won't be going unless I can get a few carpoolers or something though- Maryland's closer to me than SC anyway.

    3. Okay then. Even if they are poorly-organized at the moment, I don't really think you have any right to call them scumbags after what you pulled in the comments above. You admitted to espionage and slander...

      My point is, if they're too badly organized to hold a convention, we'll know well before the aforementioned two months, so there's basically no risk there.
