Virtual Shovel Corporation
Press Release

1/15/16

Uh oh.

The stock market is down over 500 points.
It seems that my report has not been taken well.
I suppose they were expecting bigger sales figures for 2015.

I would like to offer my sincere apology for destroying the world economy, oops.

President, Virtual Shovel Corporation

I just sold a shovel in Feb 2019.

But Unity just switched to two factor authentication mandatory to set up a payout method.
They wiped out all the old payout info.

I don't do that, so now I can't get paid anymore. :(

It's a shame, that transformer was by far your best asset. :troll:

It was the best 3 boxes I ever stacked on top of each other :)



I submitted a support request and the guy told me about an extension for Chrome that is an authenticator.

If its compatable with whatever company you are dealing with, it does work in a browser, no phone needed.

Companies push the phone aspect but an application on a browser or even just a regular PC program would work because there is no live connection required.

Hey now, lets not get crazy!

Actually I was thinking about doing that since I did my taxes and I'm getting back much more than expected.

If I did, then I could help Mike pay for all his Patreon obligations :twisted:
I wonder if he is at break even yet.

Then I could start a Patreon to help me pay for my Patreon donations.

Tzan is creating Patreon donations!

How much would you want on Patreon to make a new transformer every month?

Well I have been noticing transformers that look interesting.

The one I did was very simple, just 3 boxes really.
I spent 12 hours making the snow shovel, so we could say 10 hours for a more complicated transformer.

I charge $120/hr to do architectural design work for home owners.
$60/hr to do contract work for architects.

So I guess a minimum of $600 up to $1200 per custom made transformer.
With repetition I would gain speed so would need less.
They wont really sell well on the Unity store at $5 each so the patreon money would have to make it worth while.

If only there were transformer nerds, like train nerds.

My Patreon idea is:
Tzan is creating Patreon donations!
6. people give me money, because they want to donate but can't be bothered to find creators
7. I find Patreon creators I like and re-donate the money
8. minus a small fee for my service
9. profit!


But making transformers for money sounds cool. :D
Shit! am I a transformer nerd??

Probably! The problem is that it’s hard to find a transformers community. All of them seem to be obsessed with robots instead.

Those people are fools.
Nothing beats the steadfast, majestic, motionless power transformer.
