A Brief Introduction to this Page's Purpose

Not Another Dime! is dedicated to documenting the assorted, and sometimes wild, details of Mr. Ken Whitman's business dealings within the Role Playing Game (RPG) industry. This place is NOT intended to be a medium of discussion about Mr. Whitman, pro or con, but instead be a "jumping off" point to enable the reader to make their own informed decision about Mr. Whitman's history and business character.

Whenever possible, links to the original source material will be provided, but in many cases that information may have been deleted or secured behind restricted-access (like a private Facebook page) accounts.

Anything posted here is the opinion of the retrospective author and any content shown is to be considered "fair use" and posted for educational purposes only.

Note to authors: Please begin each post with the original date of creation in the format of YYYY.MM.DD (i.e. 2015.08.08) so readers can use the Chronology page to find specific information. Please use appropriate tags when possible for the same reason.

Note to contributors: If you have some valid data to send, screenshots, links to other Ken Whitman stories, etc., please feel free to send a gmail to notanotherdimeblog. We'll look into it and post if appropriate.

2017.09.02 Ken "Whit' Whitman Looks Like He's Found Honest Work

2017.09.02 Ken "Whit' Whitman Looks Like He's Found Honest Work
Looks like our main man Ken "Whit" Whitman has his own games & comic store. This probably isn't really news if you have been following Tenkar's Tavern's #ConManKen posts.

Now we do not recommend people going to the Little Monster Games & Comics' Facebook page or their Square Store to cause trouble. If Ken "Whit" Whitman wants to make an honest buck nobody should interfere in that endeavor.

Seriously.....this isn't one of those *wink* "don't do this" *wink* moments. Not that we expect Kenny to come through on any of his abberant Kickstarters, but if there is even a slimmer of chance for these projects it lied with Ken "Whit" Whitman making some honest money so he can repay what he's stolen from the budgets of these projects.

The comments/reviews for this shop are overwhelming positive, but appear to come from well before Kenny's involvement. Hopefully that trend (good reviews) will continue, but just based on the community's past experience with Ken "Whit" Whitman running an online store, I'd think thrice before placing an online order through the Square Store.

Hell....his Whit Studios Square Store is still in operation!

2017.09.02 It Appears Ken "Whit" Whitman has Given up all Pretense of Fulfilling his Kickstarters

2017.09.02 It Appears Ken "Whit" Whitman has Given up all Pretense of Fulfilling his Kickstarters
Today is the 2nd of September, 2017. Our main man Ken "Whit" Whitman had already "kicked the can" of his fulfillment dates down the road/calendar a couple times now, but the last fill-by date was the 1st of August.

While probably everyone but our hero himself knew that August 2017 was going to come and go without Kickstarter fulfillments, we here at Not Another Dime (for Ken Whitman) decided to play devil's advocate and give Kenny the entire month of August even though his last set of empty promises stated August 1st was the new completion date.

While this author was pretty confident that Ken "Whit" Whitman was going to largely let August come and go without seeing any progress, I did fully expect the man to throw out some more empty promises of fulfillment at a later date. Needless to say Ken "Whit" Whitman didn't even bother to do that....

It fully appears that Ken "Whit" Whitman has simply given up, not only on the Kickstarter projects themselves, but even on lying to those people he'd swindled out of their money. Eventually one of these days our opinion of ConMan Ken (thanks Tenkar!) is going to be seen as fact by even the most fervent of supporters.

A quick search of the current slate of six (6!) unfilled Kickstarters shows that Ken "Whit" Whitman cannot even be bothered to log in and supply another update of lies.....feel free to check this out for yourself! Clicking on each graphic will take you to the updates page these screenshots were taken from.

2017.08.27 Ken "Whit" Whitman Still (kind of) has a Wikipedia Page

2017.08.27 Ken "Whit" Whitman Still (kind of) has a Wikipedia Page
We received a tip late at night the other day about Ken "Whit" Whitman's Wikipedia page. Because of the hour looking into this had to be put off, but this editor's initial reaction was that maybe Ken "Whit" Whitman had tried to resurrect the page in order to see who hops on to edit the thing.

We looked at the page....it's only a draft page, and the revision history isn't pretty.

It looks like a little bit of back and forth between contributors and editors, especially from back in 2015. Of course now that we have the hindsight available from two years of pretty much nothing (Kickstarter-wise) it might be a good idea to re-submit some much-needed changes.

Of course, Not-Another-Dime (for Ken Whitman) should not be referenced as a primary source. All we've tried to do here is gather up information into one location, with links to the primary sources were possible (stuff has been deleted all over the place).

2017.08.14 NAD is Well Aware of Ken "Whit" Whitman's Self-Imposed August 1st Deadline(s)

2017.08.14 NAD is Well Aware of Ken "Whit" Whitman's Self-Imposed August 1st Deadline(s)
We know that Ken "Whit" Whitman's re-scheduled (a couple of times now) release date for his varied Kickstarter projects  was August 1st, and we've let that date come and go without commentary.

Since we really didn't expect anything from our  raison d'etre by the 31st, much less the 1st, we thought it best to just wait it out until September 1st.

We haven't decided to let up on ol' Kenny......just didn't see a lot of value in posting the obvious on the 1st of August.

We would like to remind folks that while we don't mind commentary regarding Ken "Whit" Whitman's "illustrious" dealings, would would prefer to not receive comments that consist of calling ol' Kenny names. At this point they really don't serve any real use.

By all means, if Ken "Whit" Whitman has done you wrong, whether through Kickstarter or what we'd consider a shady, if not illicit/immoral/illegal business dealing, you have a right to be upset......but instead of venting here, do something productive, like filing a complaint with the appropriate Attorney General's office.

2017.07.15 Some "#ConManKen Posts Over at Tenkar's Tavern

2017.07.15 Some "#ConManKen Posts Over at Tenkar's Tavern
This last week we've had some news that Ken "Whit" Whitman was working as a game store manager and that the owner of said game store is shuttering the business at the end of this month.

Since July 2017 is the last month before Ken "Whit" Whitman's latest promise of Kickstarter fulfillments, it's probably a double-edged sword for him.

There has been some speculation as to the reasons why this particular game store is closing, but at this time we'd rather not partake in speculation. Until there is more pertinent info, we'd rather just provide documentation in the form of a link to recent Tenkar's Tavern post: #ConManKen - Mad Ox Games & Comics is Closing Its Doors July 30th - Time for Another Gig for Ken

Nothing terribly exciting there, but if you look at a slightly older posts we get another fine example of Ken "Whit" Whitman's wonderful sense of writing style and maturity: #ConManKen - Complete With 2nd Grade Putdowns - The Return of Poo Poo Head
