The guy who uses Sauerbraten's name to make money

If you know "G. Scott", you should see what he is doing using the name and image of Sauerbraten (and Redeclipse).


In facebook anyone can create a "page" and share anything.

 it's revolting to see a Sauerbraten page announcing something not related to Sauerbraten, right? It's even more disgusting to know that the owner of this "page" is someone you've known for years.


Facebook shows the administrator of a certain page

So, the "Sauerbraten" page managed by George Scott shared a post from the page "Financial Sanity Now" (related to financial problems?) also managed by George Scott.

Redeclipse page (yes, it's supposed to be a redeclipse page)


His youtube channel is related to Sauerbraten and financial problems, of course.

(https://www.youtube.com/user/georgescott12345)

he does some tutorials too, I recommend this one

But who is G. Scott?
It's not hard to find his nickname, just search for "george scott sauerbraten" on google, or click on some links posted on his page:

Let's check this "qserv" servermod
(https://github.com/deathstar/QServCollect)

oh wait


oh


OH

Deathstar? hmm, this is probably not news to anyone.

I don't have anything personal against G. Scott (Deathstar) or his work, and  I don't think he's a bad person, but using sauerbraten's name for this is so wrong that I had to use my detective skills to share :v

Page link: https://www.facebook.com/cube2sauerbraten/
(after a few hours he deleted the post and posted "unfortunately our page was been compromised by advertisers", ah ok, the advertisement was about another page he administers and shares on youtube, it's a coincidence of course)

I'm not revealing or damaging his image, since the photos and his name are public for anyone

Lol.

I do web design for a living and I once used red eclipse to test the facebook banner I was making for a company. The text shows up differently on mobile and desktop platforms. I forgot to delete the banners and left a bunch of edits on the page. I deleted them as soon as they were brought to my attention. I also use posts to test images for sizing and such. I have been managing and posting things to the Cube 2 page for years. I don't post advertisements on that page. I sometimes test ads before I make them live, I delete them in a matter of minutes. It doesn't mean i'm using cube 2 as an advertising platform. I am a web designer not a social media advertiser and manager. I am not getting paid to promote business.' I have lead many clans for more than 10 years, worked on maps, server mods, websites, clients, and managed the facebook page. Never once have I posted unrelated content without the sheer intent of testing the content for another platform. Nice "detective work" but i'm not making any money testing an ad. I'm making money working and writing code, creating images and websites.

Yea, of course, let's forget the part of "oh no, our page was been compromised by advertisers"
You use the sauer page (image/name/followers) for your own promotion, no matter if you get money or not doing it, it's still wrong.

so cool to talk to a member of the dev team on this 100% official page 8)


But anyway, of these 1k followers of the page, only 10 still interact, due to your lack of posts.

I don't use the Sauerbraten page for my own promotion. The page is for the cube 2 community. I make no gains whatsoever. I post Cube 2 related materials and nothing personal. It's hilarious that you actually believe I gain something out of a facebook page for a game. It's something I made more than 5 years ago. I post to it now and then but not regularly. I'm busy working on other stuff.

yea, I really doubt you can get any penny doing this, but it was a good try, huh?

I'm proud to say, that we don't feature any Gscott on sauerworld, for the very reasons demonstrated here.
