okay. on topic now. the topic already wasn't going anywhere, but now you guys are derailing it.
@ Vampier: Please read your messages before you publish them. They're sometimes a bit harsh.
@ Kai Magazine: If Vampier sounds harsh, that doesn't always mean he means it bad.
@ Hydragon: You don't need to show your vendetta against Kai every time you get a chance. You proved in the past that you're quite good in stealing other people's work and get mad at the person(s) who found out.

Okay, now everybody be friends again and discuss the pros and cons of two different pieces of hardware with the same name. That's the only way to have this thread not locked.

It's a shame consumers apparently aren't allowed to comment on a new product's confusing name. It's also a shame that a discussion regarding this, can't be done without the topic resorting to a flamefest.

When I first saw the photos, I also first wondered if they were just rip-offs. While they perhaps are not rip-offs, and just a another new hardware project, I also can't help but feel that the very similar name to Guillian's MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD cart is already causing more confusion than would've been necessary.
For example, in the original Facebook thread there already is a user who referred to the manual for the MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD cart, asking if that manual applies to this new product. (At least, that's what I gather from the machine translation, as I'm not fluent in Portuguese).
I can only see similar confusion to arise in the future when more people buy either of the products.

I don't need to be a stakeholder in the original product just to be allowed to raise my concerns regarding the name of this new product. I'm not saying the name of this new product *must* be changed; merely that its current name imho is disrespectful to Guillian's product, can cause confusion for future *consumers* of either products, and that it would be wise to change the name to something more unique.

And since it seems this clarification is necessary these days: Note that all these statements in my post are from my own personal view, and do not reflect MRC's view, nor are they statements made on MRC's behalf.

* Man comes home from trying to have a life, sees this *

Meits and FiXato pretty much expressed enough rational reflections upon this.
The next comment will decide if either this discussion can proceed on this foot, or that I'll lock this topic, but at the same time strongly advise prominent 'players' in this back-and-forth to discuss this in private.

I highly doubt the tone, circumstances and place in which to discuss these issues.

Just Lock the topic: it has gone from a simple reasonable question to a fuckfest of miscommunication and understanding.

Even if I would lock it (which I have a tendency to do), this wouldn't solve the issues that persons seem to have with another.

Let me repeat that I hope these issues can be worked out in private chats and/or e-mails, because if not, it's only a matter of time before (old?) grudges such as these rear their heads again right here at MRC.
Locking this topic may be wise for now, but not a sustainable solution in the long run.

Please consider to try and talk this out in private. What transpired here seems very much to be the tips of quite some icebergs.
I implore all the main agents involved in these (multiple?) conflicts to make some attempt at working these issues out. Just not here, as this is in public and nobody wants to lose face, so everyone will just keep doubling down. Smile

I practically beg you to consider doing this. Before I lock this topic, I'll keep it open for just a while to offer people the chance to apologize to one another and/or promise they will think about what I just said. Nobody wants to look like a dick, right? Think about it.

Guys, I came here to tell that Luca (fzanoto) also produces artezanal beer. So let's drink to relax because the cartridges were produced for a closed group and the label was chosen by a contest among the people who bought in advance.
I believe everything was just misunderstanding. ... but if Konami processes because of the label, let's put the process in a frame! Because we love everything that comes from Konami. Cool Big smile

And here we go. As I mentioned some posts before, the users have began to look for support at the wrong site, even earlier than I thought. I deal with users behavior at my work, so I was completely sure this would happen, and it has happened indeed.

I only see one friendly solution to this for everyone, the manufacturers and the users, and is to change the name of the last one, so next units made of the new device will come with the new name, printing new labels for the current users to put over the old one, and modify the references in web (websites, facebook, etc.) to the new name.

More time they let to pass, larger the confusion and conflict.

I work with products in the market, and trust me, this will happen for sure.

I am -again- done with this. With you all. Maybe when you stop shaming people and start trying to solve things at once. No, ranting on a topic on MRC isn’t solving. You can’t possibly infere that fzanoto is reading all oh this GODDAMMIT!

See ya! Or not.
