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.

2017.04.12 A Bit of an Explaination

2017.04.12 A Bit of an Explaination
We realize that our previous couple of posts contained comments from Ken "Whit' Whitman and a few people weren't too thrilled with Ken having any input here, even if it was just some published commentary.

Right off, we don't have any intention of allowing Ken "Whit" Whitman to use Not Another Dime (for Ken Whitman) as a medium to reach out to the many people who feel victimized by the man. In the past we didn't even moderate comments, but that proved problematic, so now everything is moderated.

In general though, any commentary Kenny had against us was fair game....to a point, and we think the points have been made.

What some readers of NAD might not know is that for the past couple years now we have heard, from multiple sources, that Ken "Whit' Whitman likes to:

  • Use multiple social media accounts for all the reasons you'd expect someone to use multiple accounts for (including some of the points mentioned next)
  • Claim he is being "picked on" online
  • Assert his many delayed/abandoned projects are being worked on and will be fulfilled...eventually
  • Claim multiple violations of assorted ambiguous laws, which have been reported to the authorities (usually the FBI)
Thanks to our earlier two posts we've been able to allow our readers to see a small sliver of Ken "Whit" Whitman's online activities 1st-hand. We don't really plan on making these permitted comments a regular thing, but if we get any particularly good examples we may again make an exception.

Documenting Ken "Whit" Whitman's weird and wacky behavior is kind of our purpose....if we keep one person from experiencing the belief they've been ripped off by Ken "Whit' Whitman by giving a good & true accounting (we really do try to document appropriately!) of past behavior, a commonly accepted approximation of future behavior, then the work is worthwhile.

  1. His using multiple social media accounts is very similar to the string of game companies he created to bilk money from people.

    1. Yup. He has been many companies, many people (IRL aliases), and now many social media accounts. I've kept pretty close tabs on him since he screwed over several people who I respect back in his Rapid POD days. I saw that whole debacle and decided that I never wanted to run afoul of his brand of business (I use that last word loosely). Unfortunately, his changing names and legal business identities regularly is something that enabled him to continue bilking money out of people, as it makes running down his past dealings somewhat difficult if you weren't there to see the shit hit the fan firsthand. That's why sites like this and Tenkar's Tavern are so important - they hold Ken (and others like him) accountable in a very visible way. Hopefully this saves people from running afoul of his scams.
