Furries and drama go hand-in-hand. In a fandom that's so drama-prone, a minor incident can quickly be blown out of proportion, and a major crime can often be swept under the rug with furries shrugging it off as "drama". At times, it can be tough to determine who are the truly bad people, so I'm honestly shocked this guy didn't have a thread until now.

Matthew Soltys (better known by his fursonas Nitro Rooski, Cyder The Donkey, and currently Spark the Dalmatian) from Red Lion, Pennsylvania would like you to believe that the dozens (if not hundreds) of furries who cut ties with him are lying about him, his behavior, and why everyone hates him. However, a quick glance at how he handles himself both online and IRL shows that Matthew has left a fairly destructive path in his wake, trying his best to drag down everyone who gave him the benefit of the doubt along the way. While his infamy was somewhat known among the PA furries for a few years, it finally hit critical mass in 2020 with a massive string of fraudulent activity.

DISCLAIMER FOR FURRIES LURKING THIS THREAD:
Hello there! If you're not a regular of this forum, odds are good that you found this thread because it popped up in a search, or you were linked to it by a friend. Since this thread has gotten a fair amount of traffic from people who don't fully understand KF's atmosphere, I'd like to give anyone stumbling upon this some quick reminders, especially since Matthew is aware of this thread and has tried his hardest to discredit all the information within. The quick version: do not give Matthew your time or money. Matthew is a manipulative liar with an extensive and well-documented history of fraud and bullying, and any evidence he may present to claim otherwise is provably wrong. For the long version, please feel free to keep reading.

Matthew's most common tactic to try and disprove this thread is to claim that Kiwi Farms cannot be considered a reliable source and only exists to bully people with fake evidence. This is completely ignoring that fact that when you see an archive link mentioned in this thread (or KF in general), that is an accurate snapshot of that weblink, and it was recorded at a time when said website was still live (for example, if a Twitter link is archived, it means that tweet was indeed real, even if it might have been deleted later). While it's possible to fake a screenshot, archive links are impossible to fake, and they’re hosted on a service completely independent of this forum. And in the rare moment where we put up incorrect/inaccurate information, we make an effort to remove/amend it as needed.

In addition, while some of Matthew's personal information is visible in this thread, DO NOT CONTACT MATTHEW OR HIS FRIENDS/ASSOCIATES. We will not endorse harassing thread subjects, and people who do it anyways are often subjected to being banned, doxed, and (in particularly egregious cases) earned KF threads of their own. We're not some top secret hacktivist hangout for carrying out 1337 hacker ops to get people in trouble, we're a website where the users document drama and laugh at crazy people online. If you use the information in this thread to try to contact him anyways and get caught, we will laugh at you, dig up your personal information, and most likely create a thread about how much of a dumb fuck you are.

To get the basics out of the way, Matthew is a furry in his mid-20s who had been somewhat well-known in Pennsylvania and New Jersey’s furry scene for a couple of years. Some of the local furries have frequently described Matthew as a bit of a celebrity; not because he was particularly well-liked, but because he showed up to local fur meets with enough frequency that nearly every furry active in the area had personally encountered him at least once in some form. Outside of the furry fandom, he works at a casino and runs "DJMSOL Entertainment" (sometimes referred to as "Nitro Production Company"), a side business of DJ/AV work that got him a few local gigs.

Former friends have also claimed that Matthew was constantly broke and asking for more money (while at the same time buying expensive things and living far outside of the means that his work provided). While precise evidence to back this up is lacking, it should be pointed out that Matthew has been successfully sued by his landlords for unpaid rent at least four times; once in March 2018, and three more times in 2021. It goes without saying that it takes a lot to justify unpaid rent escalating to a court case.

It is critical to establish that Matthew's skills with money are lacking before going any further, as this comes into play several times during this OP. This won’t be the last time you’ll hear about him mishandling money.


Capital City Fur Con (March 2019-June 2020)​

1610743220375.png

What made Matthew as infamous as he is now was the drama and fallout involving the convention he founded (and made himself chairman of), Capital City Fur Con. Initially announced to the public in March 2019, the first and only CCFC was held in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in January 2020, and has since come to be referred to as "Dashcon 2.0" and "Unnamed Harrisburg Convention 2020". By sheer luck, it also has the unique distinction of being one of the only 2020 furry conventions that weren't canceled due to COVID-19. CCFC has already been discussed heavily in the Furry Convention Drama thread, and it eventually spawned a massive CCFC OP. If you have some time to spare, I’d strongly encourage reading that OP, but here are the cliff’s notes:

Matthew wanted to host his own furry convention, but he lacked the experience, knowledge, or resources. He decided to proceed anyway, hired a few of his friends as staff, then spent most of 2019 pestering furries (primarily ones with a lot of followers on Twitter) to show up to his convention. This testimony from an acquaintance also alleges that Matthew stole money from World Wild Fur Camp (a furry event that Matthew was a confirmed volunteer at) in order to help fund CCFC.

CCFC's planning was borderline nonexistent. Matthew insisted on having control over everything, wouldn’t communicate with his staff or volunteers, and managed to piss off the few people who actually had convention experience to the point that they all quit. Despite all this, he was able to fill in some of the staffing gaps with random people he met at fur meets, and CCFC actually happened as promised in early 2020, with roughly 400 furries showing up to it.

Matthew never paid the hotel a deposit that was agreed upon in their contract, and on the first night of the convention, the hotel demanded payment or they’d shut everything down. First, Matthew tried to pressure his staff member Tripp to hand over thousands from his college savings to help cover the unpaid deposit. Due to transfer limits at Tripp's bank (as well as Tripp's parents refusing to let him use the money for non-college expenses), nothing came from this, but that didn't stop Matthew from continuing to harass Tripp for money for the rest of the convention. Here's Tripp's take on what happened:

Despite this setback, Matthew managed to avert disaster. He convinced one of his friends to put their personal credit cards onto the convention's billing accounts, and he also managed to suppress news about the potential shutdown from attendees before it became public knowledge.
1610742827757.png

(archive)

Surprisingly, the rest of the convention managed to proceed mostly as planned. Most of the furries I spoke to that attended CCFC said they generally enjoyed themselves. Matthew spent most of CCFC casually schmoozing furries and prancing around in his fursuit, did little to no management, and left the inexperienced staff to fend for themselves. At CCFC's closing ceremonies, he announced he was immediately stepping down as chairman and gave the role to a DJ who played at one of the dances, then told everyone that any inquiries post-convention should be sent to the new chairman, not him.

Matthew promised the guests of honor and his staff that he would cover their rooms, only for all of them to find out (upon checking out of the hotel) that they were now stuck paying their entire bill. People who pre-registered for CCFC (but were unable to make it) were denied refunds. Most of the people who paid for "Sponsorship" registration never received the merchandise they were promised. Matthew’s friend that put his card down to save CCFC's shutdown was stuck with a bill for $12,000. The new chairman quit ten days after CCFC ended because he realized Matthew was trying to shift the blame of CCFC's mismanagement over to him. Matthew ignored all questions about being compensated.

Matthew had also partnered CCFC with a charity (ALS Association) and con-goers had raised somewhere around $4,000-$5,000 (USD) for ALS at the event. As Matthew was running out of ways to handle the unpaid bills before him, he eventually decided that the best option at this point was to use the charity money to pay down some of the debt. He was repeatedly told by staff and friends that this was a horrendous idea, but he did it anyway in order to save himself from having to declare bankruptcy, then ran back into hiding and tried to pass the mess onto his remaining staff. Essentially, CCFC ran at a giant financial loss, and rather than be transparent about what happened, Matthew committed charity fraud in order to soften the debt he racked up, then threw everyone else under the bus.

Since a lot of this wasn't publicly known at the time, Matthew managed to avoid drawing more attention to himself for a few months. That all changed on June 11th, 2020, when his former staff Tripp made a callout post about Matthew and demanded proof that the charity money was properly donated. Tripp's callout gained a lot of traction online very quickly, and Matthew responded a few hours later by tweeting that CCFC would be ending. He also tweeted a screenshot of a $217 donation receipt (made by someone else who donated independently during CCFC) as "proof" that he donated (which I have partially censored due to it doxing the donor).

(Archive of Tripp's callout) (CCFC's response archive)

When people started pointing out how incredibly suspicious it was that CCFC announced its closure mere hours after a callout (as well as the fact he doxed someone completely unrelated via the receipt), Matthew nuked most of CCFC's social media (as well as his own) and went radio silent for a few months.

Post CCFC: (June 2020-Present)

A more sympathetic reader might see the above and view Matthew as a misguided person who wanted to throw an event but got in way over his head. However, Matthew has since proven the direct opposite. Over the course of the next few months, he managed to eradicate any sympathy people might have had for him, refusing to take any accountability for his actions, (unsuccessfully) trying to absolve himself of any blame, blaming CCFC's failure entirely on the overworked and inexperienced staff he had hired.

Unsurprisingly, most furries did not want to be associated with someone who willingly mishandled thousands of dollars meant for charity. News about CCFC’s mismanagement spread quickly through the Pennsylvania furry scene, and Matthew quickly found himself universally shunned and despised by most of his former friends and associates. While most events for 2020 were on indefinite hiatus due to COVID-19, most fur meets and conventions in PA preemptively banned him from coming back (once they were allowed to safely start running again).


Matthew's dating life and #TeamNitro

134675729_1285387275174614_1887744571195414951_n.jpg

(Team Nitro, January 2021. All of the people in this photo have since cut ties with Matthew.)

Before moving on to his failed attempts to get furries to like him again, it's worth taking a look at Matthew's love life and a few of his known associates. Between each of his failed schemes, there seems to be a repeating cycle of predatory dating behavior from Matthew, which consists of him cruising furry dating groups and asking unsuspecting furries out, usually ending poorly for whomever he suckered in. It's best summarized by this chart I made:
1610742325817.png

Authors' note: Most of Matthew's exes have expressed genuine remorse over getting involved with him and cut ties completely. For that reason, I'm going to keep personally identifying information about most of his exes minimal.

Matthew managed to go through at least eight romantic relationships in 2020 (and another six in 2021), and those are just ones we know about through public posts (so the actual number could be much higher). In all of his previously known relationships, Matthew will intentionally target furries who have just received their first fursuit. Once he established contact, he would love-bomb them with attention and gifts in order to speed up the relationship, all the while using this as an opportunity to gaslight them into believing that any furries who disapproved of their relationship were only doing it because they're just jealous and/or intolerant.

Most of these relationships came to an abrupt end after the furry would discover the truth about Matthew, though, in a few situations, Matthew would end the relationship himself for petty reasons. In addition, there are at least two occasions where he (or a friend of his) registered sockpuppets in order to spam his exes dox across random sites in a poor attempt to get other furries to harass them for him (while some of these sockpuppets are still online and are considered abandoned accounts, we will not be posting them here).

As to why Matthew explicitly seeks out new fursuiters (and only new fursuits): More often than not, a furry just getting their first suit meant they were a newcomer to Pennsylvania's furry scene, thus they'd be much less likely to know anything about Matthew's awful reputation. It's also worth pointing out that every ex has photos of the two of them wearing their suits together, all of his close personal associates are fursuiters, and every furry Matthew pestered to come to CCFC was a fursuiter.

Despite Matthew's reputation, he has still managed to maintain a small cult of personality around him of people who support him unquestionably. They frequently appear on each other's social media, liking/sharing each other's posts and white-knighting each other. Essentially, think of it as a smaller version of the rat-king social structure prevalent in some other online communities. The group's stability is extremely lacking, if only because we've had to re-edit the #TeamNitro section several times due to Matthew's inability to maintain healthy relationships.

IpbNDh5G_400x400.jpg

Max (actual name: David Earl Moss) is a personal friend of Matthew who worked as CCFC's head of events, and also became Matthew's roommate somewhere between February-June 2020. During that time, he managed to become Matthew's biggest and most contentious white knight. Max was probably best known for leaking a fake charity donation receipt immediately after the CCFC shutdown, and he was also listed as staff in the ACFC incident (both mentioned later in this OP). After CCFC shut down in June 2020, Max made his public online presence very minimal to avoid drawing more attention to himself, but he since used his lack of visibility as an excuse to aggressively harass and threaten people without repercussions.

For some reason, Matthew gave Max access to some of his social media/messaging accounts, which resulted in multiple incidents where Max said incredibly regrettable things on Matthew's behalf. In the most infamous of these incidents, Max harassed and sent threats to a minor who was critical of Matthew, insisting Matthew did nothing wrong and all evidence saying otherwise is faked. However, it's very easy to determine when Max is making posts, as he has a distinctive writing style full of run-on sentences that's very different from posts Matthew makes on his own.

In August 2021, Max attempted to come out of hiding and re-integrate with the local furry scene by making some of his accounts public again. The re-appearance was short-lived, however, as his attempts to apologize for past behavior were not perceived as genuine, and when confronted about the far more incriminating incidents he did not address at all, he responded by pretending they never happened and rambled about unrelated topics. Despite this poor reception, Max has kept his social media public, but when criticized, he will randomly alternate between deleting his posts, locking down his accounts, and occasionally sockpuppet as "Tezi The African Wild Dog" to throw off onlookers.

Near the end of 2021, Matthew was forcibly evicted from the townhouse they shared, with Matthew opting not to bring Max with him to the new place. While Max was able to find a new living arrangement, it would appear the two of them are still in regular contact as of this writing.

Monty The Wolf

1657149537072.png

Monty is Matthew's current romantic relationship as of 2022. They met sometime during the summer of 2021, a period when Matthew was in the process of being evicted from his current home (due to a combination of unpaid rent and the discovery he was subletting to teenagers). Matthew managed to manipulate Monty into giving him several thousand dollars to lessen some of his accumulated debt, and he also isolated Monty from his family by having him take out a loan for an expensive new townhouse, then letting Matthew move in with him (as well as inviting Matthew's sister and her boyfriend). Allegedly, Monty is the only person on the loan agreement for the townhouse as well.

Monty's social media presence is surprisingly barren, as his only known accounts have little to no activity. His Instagram mysteriously stopped updating shortly after meeting Matthew, and his Twitter has thousands of retweets of random furry porn but not a single post he made himself.

In early 2022, one of Monty's relatives contacted the Farms, expressing concern for Monty's well-being after discovering this thread. According to them, Monty had cut off contact with most of his immediate family shortly after meeting Matthew and refused to elaborate as to why. It is also confirmed that Monty reads this thread; Monty's mother allegedly sent him a link to this thread and Monty responded by blocking her outright.

Monty's relative politely requested we refrain from posting his real name or photos of him out of fursuit. I figured having sex with Matthew was punishment enough.

Briggs the Fox (aka Embry)

1657150921979.png
1657150957734.png
1657151021514.png

Briggs is a fursuiter who briefly dated Matthew in mid-2020, with the relationship later ending for unknown reasons. Despite the fact they had broken up (with Briggs later getting involved with a different fursuiter), Matthew had convinced Briggs to be the "chairman" for the short-lived "Amish Country Fur Con" incident mentioned later in this OP, causing Briggs to be subjected to intense questioning from other furries who were asking him why he was working for a fraudulent event.

After ACFC ended unceremoniously, it was previously believed that Briggs had learned associating with Matthew was an awful idea and cut contact, as he has said several times on social media. However, leaked information from early to mid-2022 has shown that not only was that a massive lie, but Briggs might possibly be one of the most active members of Matthew's friend circle. Unlike Max, Briggs is at least smart enough to make his association as private as possible, with little to no public posts showing how involved he still is with Matthew.

Toni Marie Marshal (Mom)

1642385235101.png

Matthew's mother deserves a special mention due to exhibiting similar lolcow tendencies, as well as enabling Matthew's destructive behavior.

Toni has met most of Matthew's exes. She seems to see nothing wrong with the fact that Matthew burns through so many relationships in a short period of time, and has been seen happily interacting and friending several of them on services like Facebook. When Matthew was served an eviction notice over attempting to groom teenagers in his home, Toni decided the best course of action would be to call the teenagers and verbally harass them, threatening to get them arrested for accepting Matthew's invitation.

Former #TeamNitro members​

All of the people under this spoiler were prominent friends/white knights at one point but have since cut contact, usually due to how poorly Matthew treated them. This is also by no means a complete list, but just a few of the more notable cases from 2021.

Blue Heart Fox

137222548_2500202896940427_6346950795483162675_n.jpg
135267722_1491395114378908_8256769535513056374_n.jpg

Blue Heart was Matthew's current romantic relationship when this thread was first created in January 2021. Blue is probably best known for an incident where he stupidly implicated Matthew even further in wrongdoing, resulting in Matthew immediately dumping Blue, then throwing out a bunch of Blue's dox in the hopes that people would harass Blue instead of him. Out of concern for Blue being actively harassed by Matthew, that information will not be posted here.

A few days following this incident, someone claiming to be Blue registered for Kiwi Farms and showed up in this very thread, claiming that Matthew indeed broke up with him, and Blue was not responsible for a separate (but unrelated) incident that was blamed on him. However, "Blue" immediately logged out after posting this (and before anyone could respond), so it's currently unknown if this was the real Blue or someone attempting to ween. "Blue's" statements lined up with some previously posted information in the thread, but the true identity of the poster was ultimately inconclusive.

Blue Heart was a small lolcow in their own right, but not nearly to the same level as Matthew. His social media was full of photos of himself fursuiting in stores and restaurants (in fursuiting culture/etiquette, wearing your fursuit inside a store without asking permission first is considered a BIG no-no). In addition, when someone showed Blue hard evidence that Matthew was cheating on them and sending unsolicited dick pics to random furries, Blue responded that they watched Matthew send the dick pics so that made it okay, completely ignoring Matthew's unfaithfulness and sexual harassment. It's also worth pointing out that based on the above photos, Blue had free access to Matthew's alcohol when they were dating, which is concerning as he was underage (20) at the time.

Kyle the Wolf

134779902_871910750226613_8303289702046688153_n.jpg
137316865_3318609264916370_2616464627622674676_n.jpg

Kyle was another friend/white knight of Matthew. He's been documented going out of his way to actively harass furries who have spoken negatively about Matthew and CCFC's mismanagement (sometimes replying to tweets that were months old) and was witnessed heavily white-knighting Matthew in the ACFC incident. Kyle created the #TeamNitro hashtag, which he prominently featured on some of his social media bios and earned him justified ridicule. Even though Matthew was usually in a relationship of some kind, that didn't stop Kyle from commissioning artists to make suggestive art of their fursonas together.

In June 2021, Kyle has stated (via commenting on a YouTube video about Matthew's controversies) that he regrets getting to know Matthew. While Kyle has yet to publicly acknowledge if the two of them still share any contact or not, it would appear to be the latter, as Kyle has wiped most of his social media of any mention of Matthew.

Kenaii The Husky

1611040375465.png

Kenaii was one of the 400-ish furries that attended CCFC, but he had not actually met Matthew in any meaningful capacity until sometime in October 2020, a few months after the event's shutdown. Despite being well aware of the fallout over the convention, he had befriended Matthew under a promise that Matthew was working to improve himself and turn over a new leaf.

Kenaii had frequently been a cameraman for Matthew's photos and videos. While he had little involvement in most of Matthew's 2020/2021 schemes, he was actively complicit, making little attempt to dissuade Matthew. He also let Matthew guest host in some of his music/DJ streams, usually referring to Matthew by his lesser-known "Cyder" alias to avoid backlash.

In June 2021, Kenaii released an "apology" video when he became aware of the negative pushback he was getting for keeping Matthew as a friend. The video was heavily mocked, as he ignored why people were criticizing him and instead spent the video literally crying over losing followers online. Following the (very justified) ridicule, he has since deleted the apology (as well as several other videos that featured Matthew) and put up a revised (and much better-received) written apology, finally realizing that Matthew was not going to change or improve.

The "Underage Harem"

In June 2021, it was brought to light that Matthew had been illegally subletting multiple underage furries within his own home. While the specific details are unknown, it was confirmed via a third party there were at least three minors living there at the time, with plans to bring in a fourth had anyone not stepped in. It was also confirmed that at least one of the minors came from a difficult and/or abusive family who kicked them out, suggesting that Matthew was intentionally preying on teenagers in tough living situations to ensure they would become reliant on him.

Due to the fact that subletting to anyone (regardless of age) was a blatant violation of his renter's agreement, this resulted in Matthew being served an eviction notice once this information became public. It is currently unknown where the other minors are now and/or how much money he took from them.

Dear Furries, PLEASE take me back!​

In the months following CCFC’s shutdown, Matthew has made multiple attempts to reinsert himself back into a group of furries that want nothing to do with him. So far, every single attempt has managed to backfire massively and only increase the animosity towards him.

Note: a lot of these incidents were previously discussed in greater detail in other threads. As such, I’ll give brief summaries of each incident and then link to appropriate Kiwi Farms posts if you want to read further.


The “donation receipt” saga (June 2020)​

(read more)
Someone gets in contact with Max and presses him on what happened to CCFC’s charity money. Max then claims it was actually just donated a few minutes ago and sent a photograph of the receipt to prove it. It was almost immediately determined to be a forgery, as someone instead googled “ALS receipt”, photoshopped some of the text, printed it out, and took a photo. As of now, it’s not clear if the forgery was Matthew’s idea or Max’s, but it certainly didn’t do Matthew any favors regardless.

The "Twitter Resurgence" saga (September 2020)

(read more)
Matthew re-emerged on Twitter with a brand new account, mostly posting fursuit photos and pretending that nothing ever happened. Other furries eventually noticed that he was back on Twitter and started harassing him, which caused him to tweet this angry post before he locked the account, name-dropping the furry he was dating and bringing unwanted attention to them in the process.

The “My Cousin's Donkey Fursuit” saga (October 2020):​

(read more) (featured in Act 4 of the CCFC OP)
Matthew stumbled upon a donkey fursuit auction on The Dealers Den (think eBay but for furries) that was sitting at about $5,000 at the time. Matthew contacted the seller and offered to pay $10,000 on the condition that they settle the payment offsite and ship him the suit first. He then admitted to a friend in private that he didn’t have anywhere close to that money, but he was hoping that with a new character, he could sneak back into venues he had been banned from.

He was so confident he was going to scam his way into a new fursuit that he immediately set up multiple social media accounts for his new character, “Cyder the Donkey”, then started using Cyder to contact ex-friends who had previously cut ties with him. Furries caught on that something fishy was going on almost immediately, and it probably didn’t help that he thought it was a good idea to send a selfie to someone:
1610743270655.png


Fortunately, he didn’t get away with it. When someone realized that Cyder was Matthew, they decided to warn the fursuit's owner that Matthew was a known scammer, which resulted in the owner deciding to cancel the sale entirely. This prompted Matthew to reactivate the official CCFC Twitter account and have a bizarre meltdown. Matthew claimed numerous ridiculous things in the process. Among others:
-The guy trying to buy the donkey fursuit was actually his cousin and totally not him.
-His cousin also looks exactly like Matthew, lives in the same house as Matthew, was dating someone who looks exactly like Matthew’s (at the time) boyfriend, and communicated with the fursuit seller through Matthew’s locked NRooski account (from the last incident) instead of just making his own.
-Tripp was a liar who ruined Matthew's reputation with his callout, and nothing in the callout was true.
-CCFC only failed because his staff sucked, he did everything right, and none of it was his fault.
-The only good staff members were the AV staff (aka Matthew) and the head of events (aka his roommate Max).
-Everyone got compensated and if they say otherwise, they’re lying.
-He didn't misappropriate the $4,000 worth of charity funds, he used it to pay back the hotel.
1610743283620.png

Not even furries were stupid enough to believe any of this. Tripp responded mockingly, which only made Matthew even angrier. He flew into an incoherent rage which only caused more people to notice the situation and start mocking him.

Matthew continued to rage and argue with furries for a few hours before he eventually got off Twitter. Although he never got the donkey suit, he has continued to use the “Cyder” alias on social media, making sockpuppets in a poor attempt to sneak into places he is no longer welcome.


The “ACFC” saga (November 2020):​

(read more) (ACFC Telegram summary)
fda58f6f5e5b9a2351373a87cc733aaf0d81d61f.jpg

In late October/early November, several social media pages and a website popped up for an “Amish Country Fur Con”, planning to tentatively run sometime in 2022 in Lancaster, PA. The official website set off several red flags almost immediately.

Among other issues, it was discovered that all of ACFC's promotional photos were stolen off Google, the convention’s logo was a stolen stock image, the convention's hotel was the same one Matthew had bragged about getting an A/V gig at a few months prior, and all of the listed staff were acquaintances of Matthew at some point (including Briggs and Max). ACFC’s Code of Conduct was also blatantly plagiarized from the ones featured on the Anthrocon and Furrydelphia websites, and bizarrely, one line in it accidentally referred to the event as CCFC.

An official ACFC Telegram chat was linked on the website, which prompted some furries to join it to figure out what was going on. Ultimately, it was eventually revealed to be another scheme run by Matthew (with Kyle and Max white-knighting him heavily through sockpuppets). Matthew had pressured Briggs into being the "chairman" of this event and relaying messages for him, which resulted in Briggs spending several hours being grilled by furries who were pointing out very obvious questions he could not answer (eg “what experience do you have?” and “where is the contract for the hotel you claim to have a contract with?”). Briggs eventually relented, admitted the entire thing was Matthew’s idea, then nuked the chat.

Matthew reacted to ACFC's failure by putting his fursuit up for auction the next day, stating in the description that he was “leaving the fandom”. The auction ultimately ended with zero bids, presumably because nobody wanted to risk getting scammed and/or give Matthew more money.

The “Cease and Desist” saga (January 2021):​

(read more)
Blue Heart Fox (Matthew's boyfriend at the time) decided to actively go out of their way to make an extremely shitty callout post regarding Tripp's previous callout on Matthew (despite the fact that the callout was seven months old at this point). Tripp laughed it off and in the ensuing argument that followed, challenged Blue to prove that anything he said about Matthew was wrong.

Blue eventually declares that they have proof that exonerates Matthew, and tweets a photograph of a Cease and Desists letter Matthew was sent in late December. The letter states that CCFC was never registered as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (something that most conventions are registered as for tax and charity reasons) and Matthew did not have any authorization to legally raise charity money under the CCFC name. If he continues to claim otherwise, he will face legal action.

When Blue Heart eventually realized how royally they fucked up by implicating Matthew even further in charity fraud, they nuked their Twitter account, but not before the incident caught the attention of furry lawyer Boozy Badger.

Matthew responded to Blue's stupidity by dumping Blue on the spot, followed by Matthew (or a friend of his) attempting some gay-ops where they impersonated Blue and spammed several furry chats, doxing Blue in the process. Presumably, this was done in an attempt to take the heat off of himself and put it on Blue instead.


The "Impostor Patch" saga (October 2020-Present)​

(read more) (part 2)
The TRUE and HONEST Patch has provided this list of their social media accounts. Any "Patch" accounts not on this list are most likely Matthew's sockpuppets.

In late February, it was brought to light that almost immediately after failing to scam the donkey fursuit, Matthew had contacted another fursuit owner and expressed interest in their "Patch the Dalmatian" fursuit they recently put up for sale. Matthew then agreed to a payment plan, but after missing the deadline to pay for the suit fully (even after Matthew was given multiple deadline extensions), the suit's owner canceled the deal entirely due to nonpayment, then refunded Matthew the money he had sent so far. The suit was then sold to someone else (who paid for the entire suit upfront). When Matthew found this out, he spent months harassing and impersonating the new owner in petty revenge, reposting old photos of the suit and claiming he owned it. When the new Patch received the suit, they promptly called Matthew out for his behavior.

After Matthew was called out, he disappeared from the public eye for three months, and he attempted to reinvent himself yet again, this time as "Spark the Dalmatian". Around this time, Matthew was also sued by his landlord for thousands of dollars (due to outright ignoring his rent for several months). Instead of paying his landlord, Matthew decided to instead spend thousands on commissioning a Dalmatian fursuit that bears a very close resemblance to Patch, putting himself even deeper into debt in the process.
Note: Matthew's "Spark the Dalmatian" should NOT be confused with another infamous Spark Dalmatian, as while they have the same name, they are two entirely different people.

What makes this situation especially concerning is that Matthew explicitly went out of his way to commission the same fursuit maker as the original Patch suit, which happens to be Don't Hug Cacti. For those unaware, DHC's owner has been mired in controversy and callouts for a while now (though that's a drama better explained elsewhere). Despite Matthew being fully aware of this (and despite multiple people contacting DHC and asking them to not make the suit), DHC made it anyways.

The original "Patch the Dalmatian" suit Matthew has repeatedly impersonated.

Matthew's "Spark the Dalmatian" suit. It bears a close resemblance to Patch.
Side note: Every single fursuit DHC has ever made is photographed, watermarked, and put in a gallery on their website (which is then mirrored to their other social media). The Spark photos are the only ones in their galley that are lacking a watermark (and weren't put on their other social media), suggesting that even DHC thought Matthew was too much of a liability to endorse.

As of now, Matthew is still actively bullying and hate-stalking Patch, mostly by befriending furries unfamiliar with his infamy in order to feed them a fake narrative of events. It is also very important to note that Matthew's claims against Patch have changed repeatedly since the incident became public knowledge. Matthew has alternated between claiming that Patch is actually a knockoff of Spark (despite hard evidence that the Patch suit has existed for years prior), not being sent the suit after paying (despite the original owner providing evidence they returned Matthew's money after the deal was canceled) as well as far more outlandish claims, such as Patch being involved in a plot to steal Matthew's money and/or have sex with him. Matthew has also been caught multiple times registering Patch sockpuppets to send harassing messages to others, presumably hoping that if he tries hard enough, he can bully Patch off the internet and LARP as Patch unopposed.


The "Underage Harem and Eviction" Saga (June 2021-December 2021)​

(read more)
A friend of Tripp's makes a few tweets criticizing Matthew's long history of belligerent behavior, and they are then contacted by a woman who claims that Matthew had been trying to convince her teenage son to move in with him so he could illegally sublet his home to them. She also reveals there are already other underage boys living there as well. The woman would later go on to send her husband down to physically confront Matthew over this. In the process, the husband escorts two other teenagers from the home and reports all of this to Matthew's landlord.
1642955023702.png
1642955033364.png

The revelation that Matthew had (at least) three underage boys sublet his home (in addition to being repeatedly sued by his landlord for unpaid rent) resulted in Matthew being served an eviction notice by police in late July. He was finally kicked out of his home for good near the end of 2021, but somehow able to convince another furry to let him move in with them.


The "Furry Geosocial Exile" Saga (2022)​

(read more)
For years, Matthew was known to be fairly active on Howlr (a furry location-based app similar to Tinder), preying on newer furries who didn't know his history and deleting/remaking his accounts once he started to catch enough flak for this behavior. He often got away with this due to Howlr's lack of proper moderation. This continued until Barq (a similar geosocial app) began making traction among furries in early 2022. Matthew attempted to continue this behavior on Barq, only to get promptly banned after being reported by Patch (with the official moderation reason from Barq being "impersonation").

1648255868955.png

Matthew's Barq profile (as it appeared shortly before it was banned), and Barq's initial reaction to discovering Matthew was on their service. (archive)

Shortly after Matthew's Barq ban, he attempted to return to Howlr creeping, only for Howlr to announce they were terminating their service at the end of February. This effectively left Matthew without easy access to unaware furries to prey on. Matthew would go to make a second Barq account a few weeks later (that stupidly had the exact same name and avatar as his previous account), only for that one to get banned shortly afterward as well. Not learning his lesson, he made a third Barq sockpuppet in July 2022 (which was again banned a couple of days after its creation). It's believed he may still have even more socks, but these are just the three we are personally aware of.

It was also discovered that Matthew had an account on Zenly (a geolocation app that tracks your location 24/7) and friended several random Pennsylvania furries who also used the service. Matthew's location being tracked allowed several insiders to leak information that would later lead to the next saga.


The "Anthrocon 2022" Saga (June-July 2022)​

(read more)
(NOTE: This saga is currently ongoing, some of this information is subject to change)
Ever since Matthew's charity fraud was made public knowledge, Anthrocon's chairman Uncle Kage has publicly stated on multiple occasions that he fully intends to bring legal action against Matthew, making sure he is held accountable for his actions. He also banned Matthew from Anthrocon for good measure, then got in contact with several other conventions to get Matthew banned from those as well.
1657152060420.png

(archive)

While Anthrocon 2020 and 2021 were ultimately canceled due to Covid, AC eventually resumed in 2022, and Matthew made plans to attend. Apparently, Matthew's urges to see furries eclipsed his common sense, to say nothing of the fact he was banned and the chairman was trying to sue him.

Several of Matthew's friends would initially claim that Matthew never attended the event and that any mention of him being there was fake news. This was immediately proven false when multiple sightings of Matthew and #TeamNitro happened. Among others:
-Someone who added him on Zenly spotted him driving to Pittsburgh.
-His boyfriend Monty appeared on Barq with his live location set to Pittsburgh.
-Someone spotted Matthew at a restaurant about a block from the convention center and took a photo.
-Matthew was photographed going inside the convention center in his Dalmatian fursuit several times.

While there is currently no evidence that Matthew was disruptive at the actual event (yet), he was legally banned from attending in the first place, meaning it is extremely likely Matthew will face possible trespassing charges for his decision to attend.


Closing Statement​

1626253261403.png

Matthew Soltys is a pathetic, socially broken scam artist who is incapable of admitting his mistakes and has since surrounded himself with moronic white knights who are either unaware of his history, fallen for his lies, or who simply don't care because no other furries will tolerate them. He will continue to be actively shunned and despised by anyone with a brain until he either goes to jail or somehow repays the thousands of dollars he’s responsible for misappropriating.

He is also part of the reason why websites like Kiwi Farms exist in the first place. Sooner or later, Matthew will make another resurgence online with another failed stunt to get furries to like him again, and it will almost certainly blow up in his face. When that happens, someone will have to tell the younger generations the "legend" of Nitro Rooski. As such, it is our sworn duty to archive and re-tell his tale for all to hear. It's sort of like the ending to James and the Giant Peach, only with more being Mad on the Internet.

This private information is unavailable to guests due to policies enforced by third-parties.

Known Aliases​

Matthew has a tendency to randomly delete, rename, and re-create his accounts, usually when he starts to attract any negative attention. Since this thread was first created, he has gone through enough usernames that I cannot fit them all into this thread's title (due to character limits for KF threads), therefore I have compiled a list of every known username Matthew has used at some point.
Before opening up this spoiler: Please get a figure in your mind as to how many aliases we could feasibly list. Someone who is terminally online and wants to re-insert himself among furries and has over say, 10 socks is going to be increasingly hard to connect to a single person, right?

The Matthew Soltys timeline of events (or a chronological guide on how to become a "fursona non grata")


Screenshot_20210603-042315.jpg

-Matthew, circa May 2021 (graphic taken from LagoVirt's video)


Due to the fact that a lot of the "sagas" mentioned in the OP tend to intersect with one another (as well as the fact that digging into Matthew's history has unearthed previously unknown information), this is my best attempt to make a list of every notable event (with relevant links when applicable) in chronological order. Whenever anything notable is discovered, it will be retroactively added to the appropriate spoiler below.

March 20-29, 2018
Matthew is successfully sued by his landlord for a combination of unpaid rent and property damage. Net judgment is eventually found in favor of the landlord for $299.73

July 2-8, 2018
Matthew wins an online auction for a fursuit. He repeatedly sidesteps and ignores the seller's attempts to get in contact with him regarding payment, which eventually culminates in the suit's owner canceling the deal entirely for nonpayment and leaving Matthew negative feedback.

July 30, 2018- February 21, 2019
Matthew is fined for driving on suspended vehicle registration. According to the docket, He pleads guilty but repeatedly ignores summons and the fine, causing the infraction to be drawn out for seven months before it is finally resolved.

October 5-7, 2018
Matthew works as AV staff for World Wild Fur Camp, an outdoor furry event in Ohio. According to testimony from a WWFC staff, Matthew talked with them enthusiastically about starting his own convention one day.

March 13
CCFC’s social media pages go live.

May 14
CCFC announces they have a contract with the Hilton Harrisburg Hotel

July 17
The first annual CCFC charity picnic is announced three days before it happens, July 20th, claiming the charity is ALS.

July 20
-The CCFC charity picnic happens in York, PA. According to the video Matthew released afterward, 50 people show up, and $666 is raised.
-The ALS charity would later claim they never received any money.
-Furries local to the area would heavily criticize Matthew for running the picnic extremely close to a more established furry meet (it was held roughly 4-5 hours before said event, and about a mile away)

August 26- September 30, 2020
Matthew is fined for speeding. According to the docket, He pleads guilty, but repeatedly ignores summons and the fine, causing a simple infraction to be drawn out for over a year before it is finally resolved.

September 21
CCFC announces another fundraiser, this time at an amusement park/campground. It is not known if this event ever happened, as it was never mentioned again beyond this post.

October 19
Matthew puts out a bizarre “press statement” on the official CCFC Twitter, seemingly to shit-talk a furry at another convention.

October 31-November 3
Matthew works at the 2019 World Wild Fur Camp as an AV staff, with several photos of him still visible on the official website. According to this testimony from a staff member, Matthew tried to poach several WWFC staff to quit and join CCFC's staff. Matthew was also put in charge of finances and allegedly stole money (claimed to be $3000-4000), which he used to fund CCFC.

December 8
-CCFC’s PR staff “Lifty” quits (less than a month before the event) after multiple disagreements with Matthew, with the breaking point being a failed CCFC promotion at MFF.
-Matthew immediately fills in the gap by hiring two furries he was hanging out with that day, “Tripp” and “Loveless”

December 9
CCFC announces that Tripp and Loveless are brand new PR staff for the event

December 17
CCFC confirms their charity is the ALS association.

January 2-5
Capital City Fur Con happens.

January 2
-CCFC is almost shut down by the hotel due to the nonpayment of a deposit Matthew had agreed to pay before CCFC (believed to be about $5000). Matthew tries to pressure his staff member Tripp to hand over money from his college savings but is ultimately unsuccessful.
-However, Matthew is able to instead convince his friend “Shadow the Wolf” to put their card on CCFC’s billing accounts to save the event.
-The schedule of events is also changed at the last possible moment, causing several panels to not happen (due to the people running them not knowing they changed and thus never showing up) and every hotel info panel shows all events starting and ending at 4 am for the rest of the convention.

January 3
-CCFC Opening ceremonies.
-A local news station records some footage and puts out a puff piece about CCFC
-Someone working for the MadeFurYou fursuit company makes a $217 donation directly to ALS during a panel.

January 5
-The charity auction happens. Notably, Uncle Kage (Anthrocon's chairman) makes an appearance at CCFC and agrees to help run the auction. At the time, he talked positively about the auction and how proud he was that the money was going to a good cause.
-CCFC’s closing ceremonies happen, during which it is announced that Matthew is no longer chairman and the role is going to DJ UltraPup, a DJ who played at one of the dances.
-It is claimed by Matthew that "$4000+" was raised for ALS by the convention attendees. However, a friend of Matthew's would claim a few hours later (via a post on CCFC's Facebook) that the final amount was actually $4600.

January 13
Matthew tweets a CCFC “press statement” stating that two of the event's staff are permanently banned from future events for “unprofessional behavior”. The statement is then deleted a few minutes later. It is later revealed that one of the staff was banned for getting overly drunk at CCFC and ignoring their duties.

January 15
-10 days after DJ UltraPup is declared the new CCFC chairman, he tweets a statement on Twitter that he is stepping down. The statement is vague, but he does specifically mention that the CCFC work environment "is toxic and unhealthy for many reasons".
-Matthew responds by setting up a "CCFC feedback chat" where several people voiced concerns over how CCFC was handled. A mirror of the chat can be downloaded from this KF post.

January 29
Xusho Wolf (one of CCFC's guests of honor) posts a video they recorded during CCFC where they solicited charity donations with a bucket. While the exact amount Xusho raised is unknown, at least 27 people donate during the video.

January 30-May 30? (precise date unknown)
Matthew's roommate Gabu moves out and relocates to somewhere out of the state. He is replaced with David/Max Nightember, who is still Matthew's roommate as of this writing. Gabu wore the "Bean" fursuit (a mascot/fursuit that was specifically made for CCFC) and is believed to still be in possession of said suit.

May 19
The first time CCFC was ever mentioned on Kiwi Farms, via the Furry Convention Drama thread.

May 20
Tripp notices KF talking about CCFC, offers to share his perspective on what happened with the event.

May 22
-Pinball 2000 reaches out to Tripp, hears out his story, asks Tripp several questions that were brought up in the thread, and posts the conversation to KF.
-LurkerDog also provides access to a copy of the “CCFC feedback chat” from January.

June 11
-Tripp calls out Matthew regarding CCFC on Twitter, airing his grievances with the poor management and demanding proof that the charity money was properly donated
-Matthew announces a few hours later on the CCFC Twitter that the event will be ending. He also posts a photo of MadeFurYou’s $217 donation receipt from January as “proof” he donated. The receipt was deleted a few minutes later.
-Matthew nukes his social media and most of CCFC’s accounts.

June 13
-Shadow the Wolf releases a youtube vlog talking about his experiences with Matthew and how he was essentially thrown under the bus after saving the convention.
-He reveals that the only reason CCFC wasn't shut down for nonpayment was that he put his credit card on CCFC's billing information.
-After the event, Shadow was sent a bill for $12,000. Matthew responded to Shadow trying to resolve the situation by blocking Shadow on all his social media. Shadow was able to work with his credit card company to transfer the debt over to Matthew regardless.
-Matthew unblocked Shadow after the debt transfer and tried to get him to take the debt back in exchange for being a guest of honor at CCFC 2021. Shadow declined the offer.

June 26
A woman representing the ALS association posts on the Facebook page of Keystone Furry Events (a group that runs/organizes some of the more established PA furry meets), asking if anyone had any way to contact Matthew. She states they have a signed contract from Matthew he has not upheld and he was supposed to send a check back in February. The operator of the page states that unfortunately, he does not have Matthew's contact information.

June 26
Matthew’s roommate Max/David “leaks” a charity donation receipt to a friend to prove that Matthew donated to charity. It is almost immediately proven to be a forgery.

June 28
Uncle Kage tweets that he contacted someone at the ALS association and confirms they never received any donations from Matthew or CCFC, he then encourages people to donate to ALS directly via a fundraising link he posted. This fundraiser would ultimately go on to raise about $8,000 for ALS.

June 29
Keystone Furry Events puts out a public statement declaring that Matthew will be blacklisted from all of their future events and asking that people not contact/harass Matthew.

August 25
Matthew makes a new Twitter account “NRooski”. It remains mostly unknown for about a month and primarily reposts photos of Matthew’s “Nitro” fursuit.

September 7
Matthew tries to sneak into a fur meet by getting the furry he’s dating (at the time) to ask on his behalf, with Matthew being their “+1”. He is initially told yes, but the offer is immediately rescinded once it was clear the +1 was Matthew, as he was on a preemptive ban list.

September 23
Furries find the “NRooski” Twitter account and start harassing Matthew over CCFC, which causes Matthew to angrily name-drop the furry he was dating before making the account private.

October 9
Matthew registers multiple social media accounts for “Cyder The Donkey” while he is in talks with a fursuit owner to buy their donkey fursuit.

October 13
-Someone realizes “Cyder” is Matthew and warns the donkey suit owner that Matthew is a known scammer. The owner decides to drop the sale entirely.
-Matthew then reactivates the CCFC Twitter and goes on a bizarre rant claiming that “Cyder” is his cousin who lives with him. When nobody believes this, he then spends a few hours yelling at the furries making fun of him.

October 14
Matthew comes back to the CCFC Twitter and tweets the ALS contract he signed. It doesn’t seem to prove anything (other than the fact that he signed a contract), but it stays up until he deletes the CCFC Twitter again.

October 20
SoulDoggo is first contacted by Matthew (via Facebook) to ask about their “Patch the dalmatian” fursuit for sale. Soul eventually agrees to a payment plan to sell it to Matthew, with two conditions:
-He must pay for the suit in its entirety by the end of 2020.
-Matthew asked permission to repost old photos/artwork of Patch to help "establish" his new online persona. Soul agrees, but only when he puts down half of the money first.

October 23
The social media and website for “Amish Country Fur Con” go live. A good portion of the website is later found to be heavily plagiarized from other convention websites.

November 8
-Matthew uses the ACFC twitter to spam-follow hundreds of furries in order to improve the account’s visibility.
-This results in several furries taking notice of the extremely suspicious website and questioning the staff in the ACFC telegram chat, where it is eventually revealed that the entire thing was Matthew’s idea before everything is DFE’d.

November 10-16
Matthew puts his “Nitro” fursuit up for auction, stating in the description that he was leaving the fandom. The auction ultimately ends with zero bids and presumably still remains in Matthew's possession.

December 21
Matthew is sent a cease and desist from Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Charitable Organizations, stating that CCFC was never registered as a charitable organization, and Matthew will face legal action if he continues to claim it was.

December 31
This was Matthew's original deadline to pay for the "Patch" suit fully. He would not make the deadline, though Soul would grant Matthew several deadline extensions as a courtesy to Matthew.

January 5
Matthew's friend Kenaii uploads a video of Matthew, Blue, and Kyle being exceptional at Walmart

January 13
-Blue decides to make a shitty callout post about Tripp because people are still linking/referencing Tripp's callout on Matthew from June.
-Tripp asks Blue to prove anything he said about Matthew was wrong, which results in Blue tweeting the cease and desist Matthew was sent a few days prior. Blue would go on to DFE their social media once they realized how big of a mistake this was.
-Matthew also registered the DalmatianSpark Twitter account on this day. (It is later renamed to “WildSparkDog” after being called out in February)

January 15
Matthew’s Kiwi Farms thread is officially started. Prior to this, Matthew's antics had been confined to the Furry Convention Drama thread.

January 17
Someone claiming to be Blue responds to the thread’s existence by spamming links to the thread in several furry chats, seemingly at random.

January 21-February 2
-Matthew is successfully sued by his landlord for unpaid rent. Worth noting that this appears to be the same landlord from the 2018 case, and one of his exes was named in the docket (in spite of the fact they had been broken up for nearly a year, suggesting Matthew never took their name off of the rental agreement).
-Net judgment is found in favor of the landlord for $10,638.78
-It is theorized that Matthew is exploiting a PA renter's protection law that prevents landlords from evicting tenants for unpaid rent during covid, which he has used to his advantage by ignoring his rent outright for several months.

January 21
Kenaii uploads a second video of Matthew, Blue, and Kyle being exceptional at Walmart. The video is only notable for an (admittedly funny) moment where they pull a failed prank on a manager and nearly get banned from the store (about 8:57 in the link).

January 29
Someone registers the KF username BlueHeartFox, makes a single post in this thread, and immediately logs out. In his post, he claims that he is no longer dating Matthew, and he was not responsible for the incident on January 17.

January 30
Blue is challenged to come back to the thread to verify that they are indeed the real Blue. He ultimately does not, so it is currently unclear if the "Blue" who posted in this thread was the real Blue, or someone attempting to ween.

February 12
-SoulDoggo cancels the Patch fursuit sale to Matthew entirely due to nonpayment. Matthew (at that point) had only sent about half the money that was agreed upon, but Soul refunded him fully after canceling the deal.
-The suit is put back up for sale, where it is sold a few hours later to the current Patch later the same day. Unlike Matthew, Patch paid for the entire suit upfront, bypassing a need for a payment plan entirely.
-Matthew would continue to repost photos of Patch on his social media for several days after this. He is told repeatedly by Soul and the new Patch to knock it off, which he ignores.

February 15
Matthew commissions an artist to make a redesigned dalmatian character for his own personal use. The “redesign” looks extremely similar to Patch, save for a few minor cosmetic details.

February 23
-Matthew is publicly called out by the current Patch for impersonating him on social media, posting several new photos to prove that they owned the suit. Matthew does a partial DFE, renames some of his accounts, and deletes a bunch of incriminating tweets.
-Patch would then go on to confront Matthew in a private DM, where Matthew would claim that he commissioned DontHugCacti for his own Dalmatian fursuit. Matthew is told he needs to redesign it and shows Patch a (later confirmed to be fake) email to DHC stating he needs to redesign his suit.
-Patch and SoulDoggo contact DHC and ask them not to make the suit. DHC allegedly stated they had sent Matthew an invoice months ago that he had yet to respond to.

February 23
SoulDoggo offers their own take on what happened pre-callout, stating Matthew was given multiple chances to make things right, commissioned porn of a character he didn't have any rights to, insisted on talking only through voice instead of text chat (presumably because it left very few records of their conversations) and was generally creepy and unprofessional in what was supposed to be a business transaction. You can read their statement at the end of this post.

February 28
Uncle Kage hosts a panel at Virtual Fur Squared entitled “So, you want to start a convention, do you?”. While no known recordings of the stream are currently known to exist, Kage supposedly spent most of the panel talking about Matthew and CCFC as examples of what not to do.

March 21
Matthew tries to sneak into the Knoebels Grove fur meet (an amusement park in PA) by getting Kenaii and one of Matthew's exes invited into their Telegram chat, then inviting Matthew into it once they are both established. Someone recognizes Matthew as soon as he enters the chat and the three of them promptly bail.

April 19
LagoVirt on youtube releases a video discussing Matthew and CCFC, heavily citing information posted in this thread. The video is moderately successful, becoming one of his most-viewed videos (as of this writing). It also helps expand this thread's visibility to furries that don't read KF.

May 14-20
Matthew is fined for running a red light. Unlike his previous dockets, this one states that he resolved it and paid the fine fully in only six days.

May 20
Matthew's docket from January (regarding the $10K of unpaid rent) is updated with an "Entry of Satisfaction" by the landlord, suggesting that Matthew (or his ex) fully re-paid the debt.

May 23
Matthew is sent several work-in-progress photos of a "Spark the Dalmatian" fursuit he commissioned from DontHugCacti, showing that it is very similar to Patch's suit. He shares the photo with several friends, one of whom leaks them to Patch.

May 24
-Patch calls out Matthew a second time, showing that Matthew has not only continued to impersonate Patch but proceeded to actively send people to harass Patch for him.
-Patch also leaks several rambling voice messages Matthew sent him. In these messages. Matthew makes up bizarre reasons about why people dislike him, demands Patch call him instead of communicating via text (presumably so there are no logs of anything he says) and tells Patch not to listen to any of "the fucking lies on Kiwi Farms".

May 25
-SoulDoggo attempts to politely reach out to Matthew and offers several compromises in an attempt to end the drama, ranging from redesigning Spark into something more original to outright offering to buy the suit from him.
-Matthew’s roommate Max/David responds (as he has access to Matthew’s account for some reason) and “Matthew” refuses all offers while aggressively threatening Soul several times during the conversation. What makes this exchange especially disgusting is that Soul was underage (at the time), meaning Max was making threats to a minor.

May 31
LagoVirt releases a second video discussing Matthew and CCFC, focusing mostly on Matthew's voice messages from the 24th and offering commentary on them.

June 1
DontHugCacti finishes the Dalmatian suit. Photos of someone wearing the suit are uploaded to their Flickr gallery on this day.

June 2
Soul informs Matthew that the previous offer (from May 25th) still stands. Matthew ignored all the messages.

June 7
A furry familiar with the drama makes a few tweets criticizing Matthew, they are then contacted by a woman who claims that Matthew tried to entice her underage son to live with him. She also claims that there are already multiple teenage boys in Matthew's home that he is illegally subletting, and she is going to send her husband over to Matthew's house to physically confront him.

June 8
-Matthew receives his Dalmatian suit, and photos of him wearing it materialize online. The final suit remains mostly unchanged from the work-in-progress photos and looks very similar to Patch. He is called out a third time by Patch for his behavior.
-The teenager's mother from yesterday also provides an update. According to her testimony, her husband went over to Matthew's home, confronted Matthew, took two of the teenagers with him, and drove them back to their parents. She claims there are still other teens living there and they reported Matthew's illegal teenage subletting to the zoning board and his landlord.

June 12
Kyle the Wolf leaves a comment on LagoVirt's video, simply stating "I regret getting to know him." It is not currently known if Matthew and Kyle still share any contact.

June 14-June 25? (precise date unknown)
-The police come to Matthew's house and serve him an eviction notice. Worth noting that the police typically only serve eviction notices when someone refuses to leave.
-Matthew's mom also angrily calls the teenage son of the woman mentioned earlier, claiming that she is going to get them arrested for what he did.

June 21
Matthew hangs out with a fursuiter who tweets a photo of the two of them in fursuit together. The tweet gains a lot of negative attention before it is eventually deleted.

June 25
Kenaii makes an "apology" video after becoming aware he was briefly mentioned in LagoVirt's video. This video would go on to be heavily mocked, as he ignored that people were critical of him still associating with Matthew (which he admitted to still doing). He instead tries to apologize for his non-involvement with CCFC, with most of the video spent literally crying about losing followers on social media.

July 9
Matthew contacts a fursuit maker inquiring about a commission. He presents himself as Patch during the conversation, even going to the point of registering an email account under the name "patchthedalmatian1". The fursuit maker does a quick google search on him, realizing that Matthew is an impersonating scammer, and drops communication with him entirely.

July 13
The donkey fursuit that Matthew previously failed to scam is put up for auction, definitively proving Matthew never received it.

July 16
LagoVirt releases the third video about the ongoing Nitro drama. He talks about the underage kids living in Matthew's home, but most of the video is focused on mocking Kenaii's apology.

July 21
Matthew is hand-delivered a notice stating that he is being sued by his landlord (for the third time) for unpaid debt.

July 22
Someone files multiple fraudulent DMCAs on random tweets Patch made. While not confirmed, it's widely believed to be Matthew's doing.

July 29
Kenaii deletes his "apology" video and replaces it with a revised written apology, making it clear that he no longer associates with Matthew while fully acknowledging that he handled the original apology very poorly. Overall, this apology is received much more positively than the first attempt.

August 2
Matthew is successfully sued by his landlord for the third time. According to the docket, this one was for $6,186.87 and was filed due to Matthew not paying 4 months of his $1500/month rent.

August 20
Max Nightember makes his Twitter account public again, which is notable as it had remained private since long before this thread's existence. Some interesting information about Max's history can be gleaned from the remaining posts.

August 22
Matthew posts on a Google Groups page asking for technical help with a server, using a previously unknown email. This information would be used to uncover some previously unknown fraudulent activity from Matthew in 2018.

August 23
It is discovered that Max inexplicably blocked a large number of Pennsylvania-based furries from is Twitter, the majority of whom had no idea that Max even existed in the first place.

August 24
Max realizes Kiwi Farms is talking about him, clears out his blocklist, then tweets a response to this thread. His response is highly criticized by observers, as he ignored nearly every point that KF brought up, even when other furries started to explicitly ask him about them. Ultimately, it ends with Max privatizing his account again, but not before he briefly renames it "Tezi The African Wild Dog" in a last-ditch effort to hide.

August 25
Monty updates their Facebook profile to state they are officially in a relationship. It would not be made clear that this relationship would be with Matthew until several months later.

September-December? (Precise date unknown)
Matthew kicks out Max Nightember from his townhouse. Testimony from a friend of Max's states that Matthew did this with little to no warning, forcing Max to scramble to find a new place. Max and Matthew are still in regular contact as of this writing.

September 22
Matthew's landlord sues a fourth time for unpaid rent. A hearing is scheduled for October 6th.

October 2
Ryan Hill (a notorious furry "troll" who has gotten in trouble with the law for making threats) tried to reach out to Matthew, claiming he wants to give Matthew one of his old fursuits so Matthew can sneak back into the fandom. Ryan also makes a bizarre Matthew sockpuppet on Twitter full of diapers and scat porn in an attempt to bait Matthew into responding. There is currently no evidence that Matthew has taken up Ryan's offer, let alone acknowledged him.

October 6
Matthew's hearing that was initiated on 9/22 happens. Judgment is found in favor of the landlord for $3,413.31

October 21
The docket from 10/6 is updated, saying an "order for possession" was issued. Matthew is likely to be forcibly evicted from the property soon. Also worth noting that Pennsylvania is a "landlord's lien" state, meaning the landlord will legally be allowed to take and/or sell Matthew's personal property in order to secure payment.

November 26
Matthew is fined $164 for speeding again. The public docket states he was only about 5mph over the speed limit, so he is unlikely to be punished with anything more severe than the fine.

December 21
Matthew makes a public Facebook post looking to rehome his dog, stating that he is moving soon and the new place does not allow pets.

December 28
Matthew is finally forcibly evicted from his townhouse, due to a combination of ignoring his rent for months on end and illegally subletting the townhouse to minors. He moves into a different townhouse owned by Monty, also bringing along his sister and her boyfriend.

January 1
Matthew spends his New Years' Eve using the location-based features on Howlr to creep on furries at a holiday event a few miles from him. When someone realizes who he is, he responds by nuking the account and pretending it never existed.

January 7
Someone claiming to be a relative of Monty contacts LagoVirt, revealing that Monty is currently dating Matthew, and expressing concern for his safety and well-being after discovering this thread and Lago's videos. Lago would go on to contact a Kiwi, who then looked further into the relatives' claims to confirm their legitimacy.

January 8
Matthew is discovered to have an account on the recently-established Barq (a furry social network similar to Howlr). He also remakes/reactivates his Howlr and is back to creeping on fursuiters who don't know any better.

January 20
Patch tweets several screenshots complaining about Matthew's presence on Barq and Howlr. The tweet manages to catch the attention of Barq's official Twitter account, who offers to look into the situation.

January 22
Matthew is banned from Barq, earning the unique distinction of being one of the first users banned from the service. His Howlr also disappears around this time, though it is currently unknown if he was banned or voluntarily deleted the account.

February 12
Howlr announces they will shut down the service at the end of the month, effectively leaving Matthew with zero access to location-based furry apps.

June 29
Matthew's former staff Lifty tweets several screenshots of the app Zenly, showing that Matthew is currently driving to Pittsburgh and presumably attending Anthrocon 2022
Bonus lolcow crossover: Lou Gagliardi retweets a bunch of tweets about it.

June 30
Someone spots Matthew's boyfriend Monty on Barq, with his location set to Pittsburgh. Matthew is also spotted and photographed at a restaurant close to Anthrocon.

July 1
Matthew is spotted in his Dalmatian suit both outside and inside the convention center, definitively proving he is attending Anthrocon (despite being banned)

This is everything so far, correct? Just checking. The 2nd post will be left unmerged since I know how much of a pain in the ass the text limit is

Despite this, Nitro still managed to suppress the potential shutdown news from the attendees and managed to save the event, he instead manipulated one of his friends to put their personal credit card on the hotel for the deposit.

dudes probably still paying it off to this day.

also this might need a re-word, makes my little monkey brain hurt. Thats my only nit to pick, good job.

yeah, as of now, these are all the notable incidents I'm aware of. I've seen what had to be done with the Khord thread's text limits, so I thought I'd give myself a little leeway since I know Matthew will eventually make another attempt to re-join the fandom.

I left this detail out of the cliff notes summary here, but in the full writeup, the friend who got screwed over was fortunately able to work with his credit card company and get the debt transferred over to Nitro. It didn't help that Nitro ignored every single message from both him as well as the credit card company, but it was eventually found in the friend's favor.

I do agree that's worded weirdly though, I'll re-phrase that.

Blue then declares they have “proof” that exonerates Nitro and post a photograph of a Cease and Desist letter Nitro was sent in late December. The letter states that CCFC was never registered as a charitable organization and did not have any authorization to legally raise money, and Nitro could face legal action if he continues to claim as such.
It’s like the party van shows up and you think it’s because you’re so popular.

Fantastic write-up. Nitro very clearly considers himself a popufur, and desperately craves attention. He’ll just keep cycling back into the dramasphere because he can’t help himself. And it will be glorious to watch.

You’d think with the sheer number of attempted furry conventions that end in similar charity fraud-related disasters, these idiots would start to take the hint that maybe they shouldn’t also attempt the same thing. But then again if furries could learn from other people’s mistakes and let go of their egos, AC would be a very barren place :story:

How do you manage to be such a fucking retard is beyond me. This is literally having negative IQ.

Fantastic write up btw OP, if Nitro was half as good as your OP, then maybe he would just be a scammer, instead of an incredibly retarded faggot scammer

You know, they could have run the conventions as a merch-stall business instead of a charity, but thinking things through isn't something that the community is known for.

What is it with Ricks Pennsylvania furries?

Is this guy Nitrofox, one of the orbiters of Louis Dominic Gagliardi III or is he a different "Nitro" who happens to be a fox because foxes are dime a dozen among furries?

Furries are not known for their creativity in naming, but this is an entirely different Nitro. This one is some kind of kangaroo hybrid, probably husky. Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s supposed to be a “sodaroo”.

@Pinball 2000 It’s mostly an unrelated tangent but I’m positive Nitro chose the ALS Association to bank off sympathy from DogBomb’s passing the previous year. Another detail to show how pathetic this guy is.
Oh, I absolutely agree. I wouldn't be shocked if this is how they convinced Uncle Kage to make an appearance at CCFC, as Kage was close to DogBomb. This was briefly touched on in the furcon drama thread, but Kage agreed to help run the charity auction after learning it was benefit ALS. Among the auctioned items included things that DogBomb signed shortly before dying.

Looking back on this video someone recorded of the auction, it's actually really sad to watch in retrospect because Kage has to pause a few times because he's on the verge of tears. He genuinely thought the money was going to a cause that took a friend of his, and that ultimately never happened. I don't blame him for wanting Nitro to get fucking sued over this.

Man, how can this be a "lolcow" when nothing about the dude makes me laugh, just angry.
