Title: To anyone who knows Kay_Noc, The Q4 Stick seller.
Post by: keikei on May 11, 2011, 11:00:02 AM
Well. It's been a month now; with constant promises of being there next week and now a whole week of no responding to e-mails.
I need to know what's happening here. Me and 3 other people are in the same situation, same promises and disappointment.
Can ANYONE who knows this guy get contact with him and tell him that several people are wanting refunds or at least an explanation on what the hell is happening.

Well I've bought stuff from him before and he even helped me dual mod my stick over msn. So I can confirm that he is trust worthy. Usually he's on msn everyday, but I haven't seen him on for a while now I'm guessing he has other things to attend to or his net might be out? But yeah he definitely is no fraud.

Thanks for the reply's guys, hopefully everything turns out ok I guess, it's just that a month waiting for something paid upfront is kind of a bummer =/

I understand your frustration, but would like to add that I recieved my stick on time, even having kay_nock driving out to a Couchwarriors event to drop it off for me. I even recomended him to my friend who was in the market for a stick. Hope this is all just a misunderstanding.

I remember seeing him at SS last year and I got to use a Qanba stick myself.

More to the point I hope the guy isn't in any serious trouble.

Hey guys,

Phil (Kay_Noc) has recently been involved in a car accident, Phil's brother has asked me to pass this message after I tried to contact Phil today on the phone.

I'm not sure how serious it was, but his brother said he will let him know I called when he visits him.

I'll post back again with an update if Phil hasn't already done so himself.

I hope he's okay, I knew something wasn't right.

Post by: kimsong81 on May 11, 2011, 07:24:54 PM
Ah, makes sense now... At least we know what's going on. Thanks for finding out Bugsimus. I feel bad for jumping to conclusions now. I hope he's OK. Was seriously considering "fuck it" I'll just get another stick. Wouldnt have thought he'd be wanting to burn his bridges, considering how small a community this is.
Title: Re: To anyone who knows Kay_Noc, The Q4 Stick seller.
Post by: HeavyP on May 11, 2011, 08:03:59 PM
that clears some things up..........hope he's alright...

Post by: keikei on May 11, 2011, 08:15:38 PM
Ah man, hope he's ok.... everything pretty much checks out now. Thanks for updating us bugs I guess it's better to have found out now rather than later. I guess I'll just keep waiting for the sticks then.

Post by: CrowdPleasingMoves on May 23, 2011, 01:58:38 PM
I too would like an update as this is the first time I've bought from Phil and have not received my stick yet. I was advised that there was stock when I ordered at the end of last month but it seems that people having been waiting longer than that for theirs to arrive.

I hope he's ok but any information would be great. I would prefer to wait and give Phil the business but the lack of communication and broken promises of delivery have left me dubious. I'm going to wait until the end of the week hopefully for an update otherwise I'll need to raise a dispute in PayPal before their 45 days policy.

Post by: keikei on May 23, 2011, 04:01:21 PM
If you gave the money through "gift" then you won't be able to dispute it. At least that's what they told me when i tried =/.

Any information or anyone that has contact details; mobile phone/ home phone would be great. I really need that money back due to travel expenses coming up..

Post by: 0746 on May 24, 2011, 11:03:48 AM
Mine would have been mid April. I don't mind waiting a bit since I picked up a cheap stick for my 360 as found on local jb hifi store. But I'd like to see some results of my investment not too far into the future.
Title: Re: To anyone who knows Kay_Noc, The Q4 Stick seller.
Post by: Vladan on May 25, 2011, 10:45:56 PM
Well, I bought a Qanba Q4. Sent to his Paypal as a gift. I met the guy at last SS Melbourne, he was nice. He had a lot of stock. I'll give him a little more time, let's hope he's ok.

However if we need to track him down, it's not impossible to do so. So if I want to I can find him when I need to :) if I need to.

I've only contacted Kay_Nock through email as well.
A mate of mine just bought himself a Q4 from play-asia on the Monday and just got it today (Friday). I just had a go with it and I really really can't wait now.. I'm thinking of just buying one straight from there because I can't wait, it has been quite a while now.
Title: Re: To anyone who knows Kay_Noc, The Q4 Stick seller.
Post by: CrowdPleasingMoves on June 07, 2011, 08:20:18 AM
Paypal refunded my money back so I ordered a Q4 from Playasia. Hopefully get it in a few days.
Title: Re: To anyone who knows Kay_Noc, The Q4 Stick seller.
Post by: 0746 on June 07, 2011, 08:41:59 AM
I'd do the same but paypal doesn't resolve disputes over 45 days old. He better get well soon.
Title: Re: To anyone who knows Kay_Noc, The Q4 Stick seller.
Post by: LaZ on June 07, 2011, 09:05:20 AM
I ended up getting one from play-asia too.
If I ever receive my stick from Kay_Nock, I'll probably sell it to a friend of mine who wants one.

Post by: keikei on June 19, 2011, 07:47:24 PM
So still there's no sign/ update on anything of phil's status, or any hope for anyone getting their money back or their stick. Can someone just pm me his phone number please?

lol The message was meant to be a feint to buy enough time for him to escape from the country.

 ::)

Got my Q4 RAF from play-asia earlier this week. I've got to say that its bloddy sweet. Its gotta be HRAPX SA Quality or better. Way better than TEs although seems to have the same button arrangements. And its not one of those keep home/start buttons pressed to switch boards. There is an actual switch to swap between 360 and PC/PS3. I've tested it for all 3 platforms and it works perfectly.

The only issues I had:

It seems like the buttons actually appear ordered on PCs. Like:
B1, B2., B3, B4
B5, B6, ...
I.e. They probably did some additional work there.

i dont know whats happened to kay_noc, but he came to a few meetups last year and it was obvious he had a passion for the sticks and the community.

something's happened since then obviously, but i'm certain he did not set out to rip people off :(

i feel for those who have lost money but at the same time i truly hope kay_noc is alright.
Title: Re: To anyone who knows Kay_Noc, The Q4 Stick seller.
Post by: 0746 on July 19, 2011, 11:20:18 PM
Every night when I go through my e-mails, I get left with exactly one thread in my inbox. Yes! its the 3 month old emails between me and my best friend, kay_noc. And then I check this thread and then go to sleep with a big grin on my face. I just think to myself: that was one hell of a lesson learned. I must do more business with random amateur sellers who have nothing to lose to give a shit about their customers!

In this day and age, how much does it take to write a reply to an e-mail or make a forum post or get someone else to do it for you? Even a simple message like "I can't post in 3 months" or something goes a long way.

Post by: Vladan on July 22, 2011, 02:54:56 PM
I think it's safe to say we've been ripped off. Fucking terrible.

Mmmm yeah, I am feeling the same too. You know, ripping people off from oversea's is one thing (most cases they are home free), but from the local community is another thing, why do it? I mean eventually people will catch up with them, and some of us are not small guys, by all means we are not violent people, however it is not in their best interest to be doing it.

And, like you all, I am pretty busy dude, when not playing SF, working fulltime other commitments, we just do not have the time to chase this kind of thing up, it is a real shame, and very disappointing.

If I hear from Kay Noc, and receive either my money or my stick, I will be prepared to forgive, that's all I can do.
