Weaver and his brother have been evicted from their apartment and are threatened with homelessness. They're asking for donations to help ease the blow.

See here: http://tgweaver.tumblr.com/post/19107187069/help

And here: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/3256976/

I'm not quite sure if this news belongs here but it's important, and I figure putting it here will be a sure-fire way to garner the attention it needs.

I dont have any cash, but this reminded me of a similar situation with a dA artist who needed money for a surgery and we could do the same some people did back then.

Im a drawfag myself, never really posted on Tgchan before, but i think something we could do is a massive comission sale, get someone trustfull (this is the hard part) to control a paypal account to get the money from the comissions there, and then everyone can set up a price for example:
"If you donate 15$ or more you will get a free draw from X", and then from time to time that person sends all the comissions money to Weaver.

This is just an idea and im sure it has its flaws, but again, its just an idea.

Did you actually even read the post? He just needs something so he isn't living on the fucking streets for a bit.
I was in a similar situation myself and I know just how hard it is to even ask for help. If not for the bit that I'd gotten I don't even know where I'd be right now.

I don't know about him quitting his job, but that is not anywhere near why he's getting thrown out.

Also yeah he asked for money only once before this and that was in return for essentially commissions. Buncha haters in here.

Man, do you have any idea how hard it can be to find a job these days? Even if you are in a place with a half-decent job market you'll still have to fight tooth and nail to get that minimum wadge no benefits job, because there's at least three other dudes who want it too.
>>
No. 20679 ID: 34c044

I'd buy that if he actively searched for a job...

But given his previous record of begging for money and not actively searching for a job. No.

Hell even Captain Slowpoke was jobless at one point and he never ever begged for a single dime. He found a way to sustain himself somehow.

If Weaver was smart and as creative as he claims, he would probably be able to make some sustainable income. But if he is still thinking he's entitled to be given money due to his 'awesome creativity' and the fact 'he started questing' and 'did RubyQuest' then no. He should not be paid a single dime.

Hey buddy! I see you haven't read the posts Weaver linked, and have no idea what you're talking about!

Weaver's only ever asked for money once before, at least on tgchan, and he offered commissions that time. You can't say you know he hasn't been looking for a job, stop pretending that you do. Also he's not being evicted for missing payments.

Go read the links in the OP before posting again. If you are still an idiot after that, I'll ban you for trolling. Try not to be a cunt to people who are having hard times. I'm not asking for tgchan to be a hugbox here, but some common decency would be nice.

>itt a bunch of democrats and one republican

Most of us appear to be decent enough to donate to a guy on hard times. Hell, I probably would've donated even if it was some random poster that hasn't done a single Quest or doesn't draw: I just think it's decent and I have enough money to go around.

But then there is one guy who argues the person in question should get a job, they could earn their own money if they weren't being lazy, and that everyone is entitled to the swat of their own brow and have no obligations to donate them to someone.

And honestly, even with tumblr giving some background, I don't think any of us can say enough of the situation to objectively tell which one in this thread is right. Everybody makes some good points: basic decency versus getting your own shit together without handouts and crutches.

I don't know, maybe we can just all be friends anyway? That'd be nice.

I have no idea what some people in here are talking about. "Begging on the ground [sic] of his creativity"? He was extremely polite and self-effacing over the entire matter, made it very clear no one owes him anything and the only reason you should donate to him is if you feel like it. He was incredibly well-mannered.

Even though all I had to give was ten bucks, I'd say the dude has given me like two hundred hours of entertainment over the last... shit, six or seven years, so in my own personal opinion, he's earned what I gave.

I thought the parallels of his current situation to his previous works, like Player 1 (getting shit from Tom Nook, a "long train ride") and Boxdog (homelessness), is sort of crazy. It's almost as if he's become the quest.

...God fuck I love this guy. I'll be donating again, that's for sure.

Help Weaver or don't, don't use this thread to kick a guy while he's down.

If you don't think he deserves your help, then you are well within your right to not offer it. Posting in here about how bad he may or may not be isn't helping anybody, nor is it changing anyone's minds who have chosen to donate.

Banning will start happening if this keeps up.

I guess we could make a plushie of that green flower guy he uses as an avatar. Sadly, I lack the weaving (haha) skills to contribute to it personally.

On a more positive note, Weaver's been drawing pictures of Queen Chrysalis, so his life's pretty up and running now.
