To be fair, if you want an example of people sexualizing cartoons, look at the entire country of Japan.

This really doesn't help his case.

wow, wow this guy is getting ripped a new one ... make note never to bring your problems to this board lol

If you look back, people have actually been very sympathetic to him and offered plenty of constructive criticism. Instead of going "Yeah, you know what? You're right", he keeps going off on tangents and blaming everyone but himself.

This is when people started ripping him a new asshole, doing their research and digging up dirt on him.

I didn't say it before, because I didn't want to hurt his feelings any more than they already have... but I've seen trolls put more effort into their trolling attempts than he has spent on his legit "bitcoin" e-commerce site.

Plus, how do you get fired from Walmart twice? I worked there while I was in school and I actually tried to get fired (I had my reasons) and I couldn't.

This is sad to see, but I think others can learn from this. Work hard and make sure you know what you're getting into before starting a Bitcoin website. Research the market for your goods and be able to provide something your competitors don't.

The only thing I know is the fact of my ignorance. To consider me genuinely arrogant and narcissistic is a misjudgment that has no real ground. I may speak formally and I may be assertive but do I look at myself in an irrational manner and put others below me? I do not.

Please tell me you're the greatest troll ever, Atlas. It would make me feel so much better about the world.

Although in a way I want you to be real, because it's like having a window into the mind of that kid who shows up for every college class in a tasteless overpriced suit and bright red bow-tie.

Do you own a bow-tie, Atlas? Be honest.

Heh, furries... Drama, blame others first, and total lack of drive/fighting spirit. You're being an embarasement to sleazy business finance foxes everywhere

Hey now, there's no need to rag on furries like that.  How much drama have we heard about people losing everything because of their bad investments in coins, mining rigs, MyBitcoin, and what not?  Furries as a whole are doing better than the average bitcoiner.

Dear BitCoin Community,

   Effective immediatly, I'm pulling everything related to me. It's been pretty obvious for the last few months that either no one trusts me or are hoarding too many coins to care. The '94 explorer I had my eye on sold yesterday so I'm once again out of a vehicle stuck relying on my fience's mother to take me to and from work while their car's on it's last leg. BitCard will be offline permantly when the time has run out from btcwebhost, as that project has ended in disaster. I might as well also pull the idea for the market/bazarr/mall/whatever since I'm pretty sure that'll end in disaster as well. It's been painstakingly made clear that bitcoins are not for me. I'll never be able to have the GPU capacity to mine the darn things, with cards costing $500+ and I make jack squat as it is off cpu mining and that's not enough to live on. I still owe the IBB 1.5btc and I'll get that back to them on the 20th as per our contract. I also owe the owner of btcmarket.us .1btc and i'll get that back to them as well.

   Ya know I had this good deal here finding bitcoins and mining them and all.. but reality has finally set in. Since I'm part of the low middle class, I'll never be able to afford anything nice. No car, no house, no business... nothing. It's true that I finally found myself a job but it's a part time job of 20hrs a week on minimum wage(just enough to pay bills). That coupled with the little bit I'm getting from Public Assistance and i'm still no better off then I was. I could go on and on and tell everyone my problems but no one cares. I'll be deleting this account on the first so I won't have to pester anyone or attempt to bring up ideas to further bitcoin ever again.


Sincearly,

No, I had it posted on fei.x10.mx/store for a while and someone commented that it didn't look legit or professional because it wasn't a dot com, so I went through the hassle of setting up a dot com with GoDaddy which lead me to btcwebhost.

What's the hassle with registering a dot com? That's like less than 5 minutes effort?


 The current site is indeed thebitcardstore.com and I think I spam'd the crap out of it once a day in the marketplace section of the site. After a while, some that visited the site said good job while others said that my prices were high and why couldn't I sell like <insert name here>, their prices are lower then yours. I also had a problem with BTC prices in Zen Cart since I'm not a PHP writer, and the module for open cart is non existant but the prices are currently listed in Zen Cart as USD with the option to pay for them in bitcoins if that makes sense.

This started out as a very heartfelt project that I was sure I could get up off the ground, however a business doesn't stay around very long if there aren't any customers.

I don't want to sound like a dick here, but the Bitcoin community doesn't owe you a living. Loads of my projects have failed, wasting a lot of effort even with good ideas. You just regroup and try again, not cry on the internet about it. I was dead broke for years before I made my first million selling internet pogs.

Pretty much the biggest lesson you learn as an entrepeneur is that people don't give a shit about you if you're poor and they love you if you're rich.

For the record I marked cards up 10% -.- a $5 card marked up is $7. Do some math yeesh.

Maybe your business failed because you have the math skills of a fourth grader who was left back a couple of times.

10% of $5 is $0.50. A 10% markup would make the card $5.50.

40% of $5 is $2. A 40% markup makes it $7.

Jesus Christ.

This was too funny.  The truth hurts.

Wow lol. People actually cared enough to dig up my past and attempt to shove it into my face. Very fail.
I would like to ask that my personal life(if there's any of it left) be kept private and off the forums. I don't go around digging up personal info on you and attempt to use it against you. I am known to shoot my mouth off and for that I apologise. I've always been that way and I doubt it'll change. What I say on blogger however is indeed private and needs to stay that way(it's the only way I can vent without anyone getting hurt).

In regards to the site. It took the better part of an hour to attempt to get a dot com registered with GoDaddy as most names were taken(that and GoDaddy changed some things around). Oh well, thats on me. The site did at one time have a wood type theme to go along with the cards, playing off a card/sports store but I can see I failed. Tried to go with a blue theme that was claimed to be popular and it messed up the site, so I ended up reverting it back to the standard one. I can see why there's no other card store that takes bitcoins. It's a hard market to be in when you have all of this stock and don't know what to do with it. It's obvious the baseball cards'll go back into my collection and the pokemon cards'll go back to my mate. The magic cards will probly either go back to my mate's brother or into the shredder as their in fair to poor condition and took them on consignment.

I actually did have a slight thought of going back to it last night as it dealt with bitcoins and bitcoins as a currency has tremendous potential. Then reality set in again and realized that no matter if I recreated the site or took away the trading cards or reset values or any of that, the end result would be the same and I'll end up making another dear jon forum post so I think I'll just give it all up now and save myself the headaches.

It took the better part of an hour to attempt to get a dot com registered with GoDaddy as most names were taken(that and GoDaddy changed some things around).

Ohhh. I get it now. You're trolling right? Your work ethic can't really be that pathetic, because that's pretty freaking sad. The better part of an hour on a project such as a site, or well pretty much anything I've ever worked on in my entire life, isn't even a blip on my radar.

You know how long it took me to come up with the name to my site?
Pretty much every waking moment I had, where my attention wasn't completely dedicated to something else, for the better part of a week.

I've spent the last 6hrs today working on my project, and yet I don't even have 1/10th of it done yet. I have another guy working on most of the server side stuff, and still we are not even close to being finished. Maybe in about a month, maybe 2, we will get it up and going with our service. And that's just 6hrs today, I've probably spent a good 50 or more on it already, not including what the other guy has been working on. 1/10th on the other hand is a generous collective figure.

I don't even include setting up the domain, the DNS routing, emails, subdomains, or the basic web server on my project as even part of the project. It's just what had to be done, so I did it. Probably took a couple hours, who knows, I wasn't keeping track.

If it fails it fails. I will not complain about the time spent on it or the money I have thrown at it.

Good, you're learning. Your idea sucked, everyone has sucky ideas they think will be good. It's normal. Learn from it, find out what you did wrong, find out what you did right, apply those things to something else.

The problem with this is, you didn't actually learn from your other paragraph I commented on. Now I can see you fixing up the site and just hanging on to it while you work on another project, but not completely going headfirst into a project that you already realize has failed and has pretty bad business behind it.


But you know, that's going to take more than an hour. Everyone knows that anything that takes more than an hour isn't worth it.
I sure hope you don't wonder or blame anyone else for you being "lower middle class", because this is why.
My boss probably makes a couple hundred grand a year. I honestly don't think he ever goes home. The only time I've ever seen him leave his office is to go to lunch. He calls that his "free time". (this is in the south btw, not CA or NY where a couple hundred grand is minimum wage  Grin)
