You deserve nothing because you conduct yourself like a child.
OK chief, yeah, I'm sure you would've handled it so much better than me if you were in my shoes, having dumped years of your life in such projects, and then having to listen to people tell you that anybody, anywhere, at any time, can be erased from existing, crediting, inclusion, if the determined cheater can prove s/he could've done the same work hours, but didn't at the time... That illogic is many things, unjust, immature, self-serving, greedy, immoral, etc. and yet you stand by it while continuing your lecture... I see both a credibility and hypocrisy problem in that.
No, the moral of the story is, Jeffery the cocky cock-flasher should've done *everything* by himself 100%, ALL work hours, from step 1 to step 2, IF he wanted to commercialize the translated results with a corporation, then it's NOBODY'S business but his! He conveniently acted this way regardless in secret, as he was instructed to by Tom Lipschultz, given he poisoned the well with his boss, Ken Berry. They had it both ways and unloaded all sorts of excuses over the years to defend the indefensible like "my evil PayPal icon" on my website when Jeff also had one on his former website!
Of course, how history would've worked out where he would've self-recruited himself to start on Ys I, well, I guess we're just supposed to pretend it would've happened the same way anyway, just without me there, and the trolls who float this absurd alternate reality talking point don't really care to walk us through how the scenario would've worked out, conveniently enough...
My position ? They should've hired a professional translation company, as usual, paid the full rates, or Daniel Prescott doing so from scratch, because the incompetence shown here, the sneaking around, the horrible precedent, the pitting one partner against the other, the 3 years of direct silence towards me by Jeff while he's attacking me on XSEED corporate forums (when I'm trying to forget this ever happened!!!), and the HG101 hitpiece which *almost* was printed into a magazine, but an editor left it on the cutting room floor thankfully, all of this I think has clearly proven itself a PR disaster and hopefully it's never repeated again... It was disgusting!
