>It was an honest mistake of one of our graphics guys, let it go.

He accidentally removed the Ozone kites, accidentally pasted Best kites into the picture and then accidentally uploaded them to the Best website?

You guys are right, it's no big deal. I don't care that much about it. But it's just an example of poor ethics in business and how comfortable we've become with its occurence.

:bye:

By the way, this is from Simon's (Best UK) post:

>at the time the images were first posted best didnt have any snow kite pictures with the new tempests on them because at the time we tested them, the kites only came in the old yarga colour schemes, so we faked the pictures.

not wanting to 'claim' anything, the decision was made not to spend anytime doing the images and just slap some new kites on them, so everyone could see them for what they were.( the ozone one was a bit of a misstake).
>

Simon's post appears before Gumball's, where Gumball says:

>One of our graphics guys made a mistake and no one, myself included, caught it.
>

So, if you go by what Simon is saying, Gumball is either lying or not telling the truth. Nice going Gumball! Simon, I applaud you for telling the truth.

Shit, I'm a friggin Kiteforum detective now...hahaaa.
:bye:

jimmy, i dont see where the contradiction is.

the mistake the graphics guy made was including 'the' picture in the selection he gave to the web guys for uploading......and our mistake in not recognising the image either. there's no contradiction between mine and alex's comments, only your interpretation of them.

Simon,

Ah, I see. So the mistake was in the images to be uploaded. So, who did the page layout and included the exact filename on the webpage for the picture(s) in question? So, it wasn't just the graphics guy but the web guys were in on the Best '05 Snowkite Deception also.

Ahaaaa, further evidence. I am on the verge of blowing this entire scandal wide open. I will turn you guys over to INTERPOL and the FCC and collect my $2m whistle-blower award.

C'mon man, I'm just having some fun with it all. Work is so boring and it's sleeting outside....

Go Gumballs and Best :bye: :thumb: :bye:

I still think BFK and ASS are stupid names though....but I like the hotties and kites for less, if infact they stay that way....

Never the less it shows a lack of professionalism.

If they didn't had photos they should make original photos with their own kites.

What would be nice to know is if they got permission to alter this fotos !

Faking the pictures is incredibly lame. I can't believe that any kite company would do such blatant bullshit. I would never buy a kite from a bunch of flying penises after seeing that page. No excuse!

At the right price I would. Might buy their mothers too if they're still for sale - but I'd wanna see some non-photoshopped pics of them first.
