I was thinking about lowtax and something awful, I cam across a few posts on other forums about that vice article. Some of the real old timers like from planet quake etc talking about his start his writing and stuff.

I've often thought that lowtax needs a manager/handler/editor what ever the fuck you wanna call it. basically a buniess partner that took care of the nuts and bolts give him the freedom from the pressure of handling a dead gay comedy forum.

Like he could sell a percentage of the LLC turn in content or fuck have it ghost written. Have real people who know what they are doing work on shit.

All rich would have to do is writing wacky zany articles and maybe having someone produce a few fucking youtube vids every couple of weeks etc.

Then it hit me why that would never happen. If he sold out and gave the reigns to someone else and they started to inprove the forums and make it not gay. It would prove to the whole fucking world what a failure he is, there is not way he could bear it.

He says people bitched so he let other have a shot at running shit...for free....but if he had a partner with some money who paid people to fix shit...and it worked...the success would be failure in his eyes

I think he tried that when he made Zach his partner and Vice President of the company, but then Zach shacked up with Fistgrrl and became lib-preachy and drama prone, proto SJW.  Then he put Fragmaster in charge and that was probably the most stable era but he  got burned out. And was possibly living in Lowtax's basement and cucking him.

The problem is that to really manage that site is a full time job and you would deserve way more income than Lowtax is willing to pay. Even when the site was making enough money for him to buy sports cars, he wasn't willing to pay people enough money to manage it properly.

Fragmaster was a bit of a turbogoon but was vaguely competent. And like everybody with absolutely anything going for them involved in SA, left for better things at the first opportunity.

I was thinking more of a non goon manager. Seeing has how goons working for free sucks.

Basically a coder or fuck an IT admin or depart that don't care about he content of the site or the community just that the fucking thing works.

An editor that can hold mr tax to dead lines for articles or videos

A shitty animator to make wacky zany cartoons

Have some awful goon movie night....fuck look at those Red letter media fucks.

café press a bunch of shitty t shirts

Again a lot things that would help his company can be out sourced to non community members yes it would cost money but I bet it would make a profit.

That's not even counting....monetizing....the aspies....Tell the community to put their money where their mouth is, Black baby goku is permabaned have people buy tokens 5 dollar per token one token per account have them cast the tokens to ban or unban people

In my shitty nerb fantasys I would love to do that to the mods poster can pay to remove them or they can pay to keep them ether way its a win for the piggy bank and fuck they all love the idot tax idea no?

Goons have been bitching about ordering merchandise for well over a decade. Lowtax could have had tens of thousands of dollars flowing into his pocket by signing up for a fulfillment company like Cafe Press and letting all that shit roll on in.

Instead, early on, he tried to do it all himself, had a bad time and WELP THIS WILL NEVER EVER WORK! Hahah, dumbass.

The RLM guys are funny and insightful. Lowtax/the average goon is neither.

I know you were and my point was that SA never hired real people (or at least not for long) for two reasons.

1) He never wanted to pay people their market value. There were several guys who were great coders who offered to help redo the forums a decade ago, and do it for less than their hourly. But they wouldn't do it for free or for SA merch so we can't have that! Lowtax never understood that solid coders are worth a boatload of money and wanted to pay them essentially a barista money.

2) Lowtax always told himself he wanted to keep SA WITHIN SA for whatever reason.

As far as merch goes, if this was 15 years ago, sure. The ship has long sailed on selling merch and goons remember when you used to get banned for asking where the T-Shirt you paid for was.

wow but even gayer

More devils advocate, what kind of job could Richard get? What happenes if he can't get one?

Someone would give him some menial office job if he really needed help. Though he'd probably get fired for tweeting all day at work.

About 2 months ago or so Lowtax came out of nowhere and tried to engage me on some super intellectual bitchslapping match on twitter, apparently so that he could impress some pre-teen bronies from KF that he was following. I wasn't particularly interested in talking to him so I simply brought up his poverty and the chink wife, which was more than enough to see his twitter feed degrade to existential mood dread for several days.

lol same a bit before that except i asked about how he plans on supporting his kid in the future, he stopped replying to my tweets when the shmorky pedo stuff came out

I always find it funny when people here put more thought into turning SA around than Lowtax has in the past decade.  Nigga doesn't care, neither should we.

I dont care, I just like pontificating on all the ways he's been told to save the place.

The bar for competence in anything SA related isn't set exactly sky high. I still visited the site back then and I at least remember the guy would occasionally do things, not have quarterly big gay meltdowns and could talk to the userbase like a normal human being once in a while. That's pretty much all it takes to be leagues ahead of anybody else ever involved.

who cares?

It is years to late, but a stickied thread on GBS:

"MERCHANDISE! The poll.

Hello forum user peoples, a few months ago some folks were asking if / when merchandise would return, and since I'm totally flakey and non-committal to essentially every aspect of everything in my life, I did not reply. However, I did fill out an application to be a merchant on Amazon, and guess what?

That's right, now I am authorized to sell "Imagine Your Design Here" t-shirts! Or ones that have a totally different design! Who knows!

Regardless, what kind of merchandise / designs are any of you interested in? It appears as if I'm limited to t-shirts right now, but I'm not sure. Let me know what you guys want and I'll work on the art and upload it!"

https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3824707&userid=0&perpage=40&pagenumber=1#post473702933

Of course there are no designs ready.

not err

point two is a big mistake on his part. He didnt need the most savy just someone to do nuts and bolts yes he would have to pay them but then he wouldnt be burdened with managing a fucking company and hey he never claimed to be a business person now did he
