The trouble with SJWs in tabletop is they might succeed at getting the websites or game companies to bend the knee, but ultimately playing the game requires getting real people in a room and sitting around the table. They will be told to fuck off or simply not invited back.
You're right SJWs are just a small vocal minority, once their actions start affecting the bottom line of these companies one of two things will happen.
Either the companies pivot back to accommodating their actual customers who buy and promote their products.
Or their sales fall, profits disappear and someone else comes along to take their place.

These companies (assuming they are managed in a professional manner) are only chasing what they think the 'youth' want and have been mislead into thinking that is wokeness.
That'll change.

The Hugos died when Sad Puppies was successful at getting decent people on the ballet only for the final judges to give "No Award" to every category the SJWs didn't control.
The Hugos don't have judges, much less final ones. They're purely a write-in popularity contest accessible to anyone who wants to pay the $50 to be a supporting member of the World Science Fiction Society. That's why the "all awards for NK Jemisin forever" crowd lost their shit at the idea of other people merely getting organized to vote for people they didn't like and counter-organized to vote "No Award" in the categories where nobody meeting their approval made it onto the ballot. But it's also kind of bullshit to pretend the Puppies were solely interested in getting good ol' fashioned adventure scifi (as opposed to message scifi) into the awards when they're the ones who nominated Chuck Tingle onto the slate, while anyone familiar with Chuck's grift would have known he was a liberal and likely to pull something tediously "zany" to spite them.

It looks like they're going for Ori but with some genderqueer special as the main character. Basically the kind of character design that would make Anita wet because it has a big sword and no discernible sex.

Just another example of how these people can't look past their own naraccism to make a good product, or at least sell beyond a pittance. But that's okay because they can bully AAA studios into doing that work for them.

I thought it was only write in votes for the nominees with judges picked the winners from those lists. When no woke books made the cut for a given slate they voted "no award" to spite them.

The essential premise of the Hugos is that the awards are voted for by attendees of WorldCon/members of the WSFS, as they have been since their inception in the 1950s. Though people don't actually have to attend the convention to vote; one can purchase a supporter membership instead that includes the right to cast a ballot, but they've always been by-the-fans awards deliberately kept free of eligibility qualifications or formal judging. Hence there being so many categories for fan works. "No Award" has long been an option; it occasionally topped the votes for the "Dramatic Presentation" category in the '60s and '70s.

That's why the whole Progressives vs Puppies thing was hilarious: much like the old saw about the fights in academia being so bitter and bloodthirsty because the stakes are so small, people on all sides were losing their shit about what amounted to "Well I'm gonna get all my friends to come and vote for the guy I like to win Battle of the Bands!! That'll show the world who's really the best!!" One clique got annoyed that another clique had managed to consistently take the awards for awhile and set off a firestorm by trying to encourage strategic voting within their own fandoms.

Edit: Nominations are over for this year, but there might still time to buy a membership and participate in the final vote if that's something you're into: http://www.thehugoawards.org/i-want-to-vote/

Right. If anything, the various "Puppies" movements proved the opposite of what they ostensibly set out to - there's no cabal of "SJW gatekeepers" holding down quality works that the community really wants. The entire community is just cancerous through and through, and the Hugos are a democratic expression of their preferences.

So she just stole all the money and has waltzed off with it, fuck you.
At this point her track record on these things has become so abundantly clear that you're more an idiot for giving her money than she is an asshole for stealing it.

I don't get mad at a Lion for killing a gazelle and I don't get mad at a professional scam artist parting morons with their shekels.

Imagine pissing away people's money with nothing to show for it, then trying to play the victim. She kept repeating how well thought out and planned out her budget was going to be roughly $70k and would be completed in 3 months. Then instead decided she could use that money for personal salary for 2 years and even going on expensive vacations before deciding that the project couldn't be done.

This is the most blatant scam or a lazy, uncaring, irresponsible person who shouldn't even be trusted with a houseplant. There is absolutely no reason why she couldn't say the project was fucked when she had almost nothing done after the 3 months deadline, let alone drag things out years past the deadline before telling everybody she couldn't finish the project.

She has total contempt for the idiot cucks who give her money, because why wouldn't she? They're pathetic suckers and don't deserve to have money.
 

Next Task

kiwifarms.net
Now that she admitted it, how would the superbackers react to this? You think they'll sue her?
Once you get past the subsection of backers who don't care because they were only supporting her, not the game, you'll have to get past the ones who will believe she honestly could have spent over $80,000 on her game and not come up with a finished product. Then past the ones who won't question the 'don't want to not pay people' part, when a large part of the payment-required people stuff has already been done, so the programming that's left should, theoretically, be able to be done by Renowned Game Creator Zoe Quinn.

Basically, she's got levels of lies going on here, and it's unlikely any of the backers have the will, knowledge or intelligence to actually challenge her on any of them.
