It's That Time of Year Again

Time to vote for another year of "inductees" into the IVGHOF by no later than Feb 29th.

Last year I couldn't vote in Rudy when they abruptly invented the "morals clause"...but THIS year that clause seems to be missing so I think I'll vote him in once more - http://www.ivghof.info/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Official-Nomination-Form-2020.pdf

Amusingly...since the IVGHOF is not associated with TG and as both Walter AND Billy are on the Board of Directors there, Billy will be there during the "Opening" of these nominations during a 3-day event, and instead of playing "Donkey Kong" he will be kill-screening "Pacman" twice over 2 separate days.

Not sure why a videotape won't suffice so as to save 5-6 hours of headache :)

    I still can believe you turned down my nomination of you. You seem very interested in discrediting them, well whether someone likes or hates you, there's zero doubt you're a major part of Twin Galaxies history. As long as you refuse to accept a nomination they can blame it on you, I would love to see them squirm though explaining, if you would accept a nomination, why they'd turn you down.

    Walter HAS to turn me down. I told him in writing back in 2006 or 2007 that I do not ever want to see my name appear in that trading card set...not as my own card, not as a group photo, not mentioned anywhere on the back of the card, or ANY other endeavour down the line that he comes up with. As the IVGHOF is one such endeavour then that would apply...plus I would not pass their "morals clause" anyhow, AND on top of that I speak poorly of Walter and his royal highness (since I was the sole person who did not sign that confidentiality/NDA document that he had Joel West send to me at the tail end of 2013 or 2014.

    What was the "confidentiality/NDA document that he had Joel West sent" for?

    Hi Francois:

    That was the one where Joel, acting as a paralegal for Walter, sent the following E-MAIL to a number of people...here are three parts with Joel's physical address blacked out...

    1st of 3



    2nd of 3

    And here is the Confidentiality Agreement/NDA itself...note that even though TG was sold it STILL refers to Walter AND Billy as "TG Officers" (see top left) which is quite odd.

    Equally odd is that breaching the signed agreement means repaying back TG which is no longer owned by Walter...so how is this a "simple but enforceable" agreement as Joel West's original letter stated ? Answer: it's not worth the printed paper that the ink is on (in case you decided to print)

    Now focus on the top right of the CA/NDA and that's where you are instructed to keep quiet for ten (10) years which is utter nonsense. But this largely explains why some people who might have had negative words to say have kept there mouths shut other than perhaps Dwayne and myself. I never found out who the other recipients who signed it were but have an idea as to who at least a select few were.

    I just submitted my nomination for Rudy for the 2020 Inductees

    Form (redacted(




    E-MAIL Proof



    Now here's what's bizarre...the submitted or mailed nomination form only requires that you, as the one submitting the nomination, provide your name, E-MAIL and phone number, but the online submission form also requires your street address, city, state and zip. That's insane that the two are not absolutely identical.

    In any event, that "ethics clause" is there yet it is not apparent what the ethics clause is once again...so they can make up whatever BS they want at any time to exclude someone.

    What's laughable is giving awards to people like Nolan Bushnell, Steve Wozniak...basically industry bigshots. I'm waiting for them to proudly proclaim an award for Bill Gates one day just so his name will be tagged in the IVGHOF website for traffic. That's like creating an "International Fine Arts Hall of Fame" and each year nominating people like Michelangelo, DaVinci, Mozart, Bachm Shakespeare, etc. Proves little and just says what people already know.

    Until the first year of "inductees" is completely scrapped for the sham that it was...people getting inducted for example because they helped Walter unpacking at the Mall of America 2000/2001 events so they get a BS category of champion at "Tempest" (extreme settings) of 114K and so forth...it will forever be a BS sham organization.

    Same for until it releases publicly an inventory of all tangible and monetary donations and an accountability of where the money is, what was spent thus far (and on what/whom) and what the status of all donations are in terms of functionality and where they are being housed, it will forever be a sham operation.

    i dont care enough to recheck, but going off memory i do believe the finally gave some clarifcation to the ethics cause. at first it was every bit as vague and ridiculous as you claim, it simply said you had to follow the ethics without saying what they were. it was later elaborated to include doing nothing and saying nothing that can have a negative effect on ivghof. i mean i get it, ethic clauses do have to be open to opinion like that, but i find it strange that they dont think cheating on multiple high profile games and defrauding competitors violates the ethics clause. i mean if cheating isnt a violation then what else possibly could be?

    This was provided within another wall post.

    My question...seeing how Billy Mitchell is a Board Member and must have signed this (at least one would HOPE that both he and Walter did)...then point 2 is an issue.

    In his "Evidence Package": he publicly accused me of stealing his tape, saying that he never mailed it to me, and yet in Walter's OWN words Walter acknowledged that Billy sent me his tape after the ACAM 2005 event...these words were reflected within that "Evidence Package" thread shortly after someone uncovered and posted the MTV interview that I gave.

    SOOO...Billy publicly LIED about what he said about me and that tape (to which Brian Kuh signed an affadavit which I took it which is ALSO a lie), and after Billy's libelous statement he is STILL a Board Member of the IVGHOF ?

    Like I said...SHAM in capital letters.

    Wow...an entire (separate) wall thread announcing this year's IVGHOF nominations and code of ethics is suddenly missing for some reason !!

    i kid you not, theres talk from billy fans about bily suing cause this mean article hurt him lol.

    now parody or not, such a parody of him only exists in the first place becuase of his real life shameful actions, which brings us back to the ethics code. his actions have resulted in him being a laughing stock. he is in fact bringing shame to any organization hes a part as his name is mud. are the accusations in the satire article true? of course not. but thast not the point. the point is his real actions inspire this sort of mockery.


    i would encourage anyone to do a google search of billy mitchel and see if his name comes up in a postive light or if its associated with shame and reproach.

    I wrote a "mock" article about Billy and Walter several years back called "Walter's Dream Arcade" which was entirely fictional and not even a parody. I fooled a large number of people with it as well.

    The article about Billy being stripped of his wife, however...that article, parody or not, is more than a bit over the top. It would not surprise me one bit if it ruffled his legal feathers.

    But the wall post and all replies recently missing since yesterday, that was spot on accurate.

    indeed it was. the real shame i saw him bringing to others is when he ever got walters signature on libelous comments. we can never be sure if walter truly signed them of course, but walter's had ample time to deny it if he knows about it, and so billy absolutely dragged walter down with him. forget about the techincal debates of is it mame or not. or document with legal threats and lines such as "under penalty of perjury" to be filled with lies and to get other peoples signatures on some of those lies is a far bigger ethics violation than any video game could be and absolutely brings shame to any organaziation and individuals associated with him.

    that was when its stopped being "just video games" and crossed over to very nasty real life abuses.

    All this stated, what happened to the wall post/thread that Todd Friedman created announcing the IVGHOF nominations ?

    There was a mock-pic that someone posted of Billy in a baseball outfit from the waist up with a big "H" letter on it ("for "honesty" ?) if I remember right.

  16. Snowflake's Avatar

    yes the wall post seems to have been deleted as is todd's right.

    You mean this one? The "H" is for Houston. I heard he is a huge Houston Astros fan.

    RTM REPLY - ah, that would explain it. I'm taking a GUESS that holding "Board Member Billy" to the same ethical standards expected of award recipients is too much to ask.

    In the link above it mentioned a video was posted by Roy?

    There is no link of that video on that site. Anyone knows about the video?

  20. RTM's Avatar

    I seriously doubt that Roy put that shameful "parody" together, Francois...if it were Roy then there would have been typo-mistakes galore !!

    That stated, whoever did this, that was pretty dang low...definitely crossing the line. I am guessing that the perpetrator (and I hope they do get caught) will never willfully disclose their work as they most definitely could easily be sued in this instance, and rightfully so.

    On the flip-side, I do hope that Billy stops his legal nonsense with respect to everything else going on as he himself made a few libelous comments in that "Evidence Package" that if push comes to shove he will be sued for.
