About the McHanzine,
(pops on to edit clarification: *the Bullseye McHanzine, no other zines are related to this situation.)
for those of you who are not yet aware, there have been allegations against the mod who headed up the zine project (if you would like the link please speak to me on private messaging)
this is an extremely concerning situation. I learned of it when most of you did just a few hours ago, and am completely blindsided.
i have been trying my best to follow it but from what i have seen i personally, do not feel i myself can say who is in the right either way YET (as of writing this at 12:30 AM on 11/17). Yes, i have read and seen the screenshots and posts and defenses and rebuttals from both sides on all the discords and on tumblr. there’s a lot that will be revealed and talked about here probably in the next 24 hrs but i do not want to say too much yet because there is just too much and also not enough information coming all at once.
Again this is just my personal opinion at this present time, once i have a definitive answer i will do my best to provide you all with that information.
Regardless, it is extremely concerning, and professional, responsible action needs to be taken either way.
For those who have purchased a zine, Lyn has stated here and here (idk if those links will work tumblr is not allowing me to access their site right now but just browse the feed everything is there) that all zines will be shipped and proceeds will be sent to the charities and refunds will be given upon request.
While this is being sorted out please rest assured i will also do my best to keep this blog a safe, happy place for you guys and myself.
Above everything, I value my reputation and integrity as an artist, and i value each and everyone one of you guys and our love for this game and these characters and this ship, so whatever the outcome, I will no longer be associating with the mchanzo blog.
My biggest, tightest, warmest hugs to all contributors, i don’t know about you but i just had one of the worst panic attacks of my life. And another big tight warm hug to all who have purchased the zine, i am worried and deeply sorry this situation is happening. It never should have.
My mental health can’t take much more, so i will be logging off for tonight.
McHUGS FOR ALL
