So this might amuse some of you,
Max Damage (a now EX member of Llama) tips me off a few days ago that:
Eadini Valefor (Prismatic Llama leader), decides "I think I'll buy the daevaofwar.com url (since it is up for renewal) and redirect it to the prismatic llama website." for a good laugh at Daeva of War's expense."
He proceeds to bid $12 in the hopes we wouldn't notice.
Well, I'll give him some credit. It sure would have been funny to take our url out from under us for a few bucks and redirect it to some fun porn site or the llama site for 12 months! But we knew it was up for renewal.
Eadini here doesn't bid on the URL to drive the cost up to 20, maybe 30, hell even 50 dollars for a good laugh, no, he is willing to do whatever it takes and get our url:
How flattering that they are willing to pay $1000 for daevaofwar.com!
I asked him after about it:
Seems he doesn't want to take all the credit for the joke. Nice of him to share the spotlight, don't you think?
In the end, Ken Master seems to have won the URL for $1000 but never paid, leaving him with whatever fine godaddy has for such actions and defaulting the site to us, for $12.
The "Joke on us" seems to have become the "joke on them". Ken ended up with a fine for not paying, we got our site for the $12 we intended to pay, and Llama got the press they wanted.
Hope you enjoyed the story!
Stay Classy Llama~
