Hi guys. Many of you are probably confused as to what is going on with the whole Xuphor situation right now and I think you are all definitely owed an explanation by us. Lets start from the start. In late June I was approached by Xuphor and told by her that she was gravely ill, in need of a lung transplant she had only a few weeks left to live. Having no reason to doubt her story we kept communicating via PM in order to work how best to break the news to the community. My main concern at that time was how the community would react and I was especially worried about her receiving heartless comments and such from people. The end result was this thread and needless to say I was very proud at how the community responded to the news. And I want to make this clear so that it can never be taken away from you going through that thread made me proud to be a mod here and I thank everyone who posted there with their genuine heart felt support, thank you all very much! Now the situation was bleak, xuphor apparently refusing charity to pay the astronomical surgery bill seemingly had accepted her fate and was waiting to die basically. Meanwhile we were still communicating in PM, I was informed that her sister would be creating an account here when xuphor was too ill to stay at home to keep us informed of her progress and notify us of her death when it happened. So suddenly and slightly earlier than expected xuphor gets moved to hospital and as promised her sister makes an account here under the username Kinekto. This is when things start to move along at a fast pace and when quite a few of the staff start to become suspicious about things and we start to doubt the whole story. Personally my first doubts started to arise when Kinekto first came on the scene. An apparent technology n00b who doesn't even own a smartphone etc she seemed to be able to navigate the forum expertly, being able to set an ava (coincidentally one of xuphors old ones) without issue, being able to use BBcode in her sig and posts again without issue I was surprised that she didn't need any help with that type of thing, but really that proves nothing on its own. Then we have the whole mysterious benefactor willing to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars towards the surgery. A gbatemp member (apparently a celebrity or at least a minor one) who coincidentally only contacted xuphor via AIM. Wishing to remain anonymous because this person did not contact xuphor through the forums we have no way of verifying, we have absolutely no trail of even a login or PM that can prove that this person exists. Another factor that makes the story all the more dubious. Another seed of doubt is once again aimed at Kinekto, her writing style and general forum conduct is eerily similar to Xuphors, this was my and a lot of the staffs first red flag of suspicion that made us think perhaps we were being manipulated. As a prime example of the similarity between their style and to once again question how much of a n00b Kinekto actually is I submit this thread for everyone to look at http://gbatemp.net/threads/two-really-bad-forum-glitches-involving-calls.352030/ Now does that in any way look like a post from a tech n00b who has only been a member of the forum for a few weeks under the worst circumstances to you? Also before anyone suggest we check IPs kinekto lives at xupors house now, so every single one of her logins and posts shares xuphors IP and the hospital does/ or does not block GBAtemp from their wifi so there never has been a login from a hospital IP. Lastly as this whole thread is long enough already we have the sheer speed that this all progressed by, the coincidences, the factors that make it impossible to disprove suspicion on every single turn, the downright series of miracles that occurred in such a short space of time. Maybe we are just cynical but all together it is hard to swallow that someone can be basically on a death sentence and then coding in RPG maker and requesting pinned threads in such a short space of time. Having discussed all of this over several days, and I have left out further facts and evidence because it was just too much Costello decided to PM kinekto and share our concerns and request some proof, here is the entirety of the conversation for all of you to see. "Hi Xuphor, Kinecto People are starting to ask questions about your version of the story. I am going to ask you to give me definitive evidence that all you're going through is real. Otherwise I won't be able to stop people from calling you a liar. You have 24 hours to provide me with whatever you think will help clear things up once and for all. I'm sure you understand. Costello " And the reply we received. "Uh-huh, I'm not Xuphor, I don't really care what this site thinks of me, and I will never understand why she likes it so much. As for the whole situation, http://gbatemp.net/threads/my-medic...ot-the-best-of-me.350870/page-26#post-4730401 So, with the entire forum hating me, I bid you au revoir. " Which led to kinektos final and quite frankly crazy final post in xuphors medical condition thread which yet again has made us all have massive doubts. Asking for some proof after going on blind faith for six or so weeks is not an irrational request as far as I see it, I think I have presented enough pieces of the puzzle that don't fit quite right which justifies our doubts. Now to be clear I AM NOT CALLING XUPHOR AN OUT AND OUT LIAR! Wherever xuphor is I genuinely hope she is ok and healthy but really at this stage we will need definitive proof that everything which you say that happened happened, I think the community as a whole deserves that much.
