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.

2016.02.08 Well, This Sucks
"Some of you have been asking about my open letter to Ken Whitman last month asking for the raw footage of KODTLAS to be handed over so it can be edited and put in the hands of backers.
Never got a response from Whitman directly on the subject.
Afraid I have some bad news however.
Three independent sources have reported that Ken is telling them the hard drive the raw footage is on is dead/damaged and that there are no backup(s).
Now it's possible, if we can get the drive, that a recovery would be possible. At least a partial one. But that would require Ken's cooperation. So far there's been no indication of a willingness to do that.
So that's where we are. I will post further updates if anything comes along. But obviously beating this horse isn't going to get it back on its feet unless there's some movement on the other side.
* BTW I've already been asked if the Traveller movie raw footage is on the same drive. I have no information on that. Sorry."
Seriously?! Ken "Whit" Whitman couldn't afford a backup of footage? It isn't like hard-drives are super-expensive. Undoubtedly he's scammed the KODT community for well over 6 figures and he couldn't spend another $100 on a backup drive?
I feel for those who trusted this man with their money, but even more for those that entrusted Ken "Whit" Whitman with their hopes & dreams....
