Per what Monarch deleted off his website.
Monarch is currently away and hasn't been on for some time, due to this he has missed payment for us middlemen.
I had previously told Monarch that should he miss payment one more time I would step down. He's been out for 2 weeks now with no word. He hasn't paid some of the MMs, and he hasn't paid any of us for December.
I checked the company Plimus account as I was going to refund some people their Middleman Transaction IDs and I got the message saying there was no funds available, meaning Monarch withdrew everything.
To those waiting for their services, I apologize. I advise you file a chargeback. Heck I advise everyone who can to file a chargeback on anything they purchased from Monarch, since he owes people money and has stolen from us technically speaking. Don't let him have free cash. The Middleman Service is pretty much the only thing keeping EGS afloat. To those who have recently purchased Middleman Transactions, you may have noticed I refunded them and sent you a PM, similar to this including the following:
"If you would still like me to carry out this middleman transaction I ask you send payment to my personal paypal address: *Edited out*
Send it as "Payment: Other" and in the text field please put Virtual Transaction: EgamingSupply Middleman services rendered.
Once you do so please PM me and I'll continue your service ASAP via your thread already made.
I will be sending this to all current open MM transactions until Monarch returns and pays last month's dues. If you have any questions please PM me."
All in all, Monarch owes me alone (He owes other members a lot also) $878.95 Usd + $200 for december.
Here's my old Thread in the staff section regarding this:

Posting this, will reply with Transaction IDs for each respective Month.
The months not mentioned he paid for, some were a bit late but he paid.
As you've all noticed Monarch has gotten more and more ridiculous with every post he makes.
He's VERY disrespectful to the staff and members. He is childish and annoys the staff via Messenger with inappropriate posts and spam (Staff be kind to verify this for me).
There's also been recent Staff applications for both Moderator and Middleman that were never replied to. Monarch had asked me to take charge and determine who would meet the requirements. Truth be told, when I gave my opinions and comments he would completely ignore what I say and end up getting someone else who didn't apply and was new to the forums (no offense to you guys, but please see this from my perspective. Luckily you all are great people).
As for middleman applicants, I'm glad he didn't get anyone as it would been one more angry person who didn't get paid.
I'm more than confident I'll be removed for this. I expect to be. More importantly I urge everyone who reads this to not be tempted to Middleman for him. Everything everyone has ever said about Monarch being a Scammer and a Liar, From Infamous Flame(Former Admin, was removed for site sabotage) to Derfy(Same as Infmaous Flame) to Bassline(Unpaid Middleman, was removed for holding accounts ransom for not getting paid), . It's all true. Please note, here I'm referring only to personal comments they made towards Monarch as a person. In the case of Infamous Flame, Derfy and Bassline; I did not approve of the actions they choose to take, nor do I encourage nor entertain them. I'm merely pointing out the fact that evern that far back, his own staff spoke out against him in this manner of not Paying his Middleman or of being a rude CEO and insulting staff and members.
More recently, Astralfow(Former MM, Removed for publicly posting against Monarch for not getting Paid) was removed for the reasons I stated.
He wasn't in the same league as the for-mentioned trio but he was also an unpaid Middleman, like myself who was removed for illuminating the mass.
However unlike the actions some of the before mentioned took, I wont do such a thing. I'll never resort to "stealing accounts" or anything like that.
I'll continue to offer Middleman services but not through EGS. If anyone would like, please don't purchase it, but rather PM me, Artemys.
Quoting what someone told me, "Ironically, Monarch is this site's biggest scammer"
From refunds to his forced ASP to Middleman payments.
But it doesn't stop there, read this: http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1889473
He scammed someone for $200 there.
I'm not even going to start about what he does with the money, use your imagination, you're probably right.
I was patient with Monarch for a long time. I offered my help to him to make
EGS better many times, only to be shot down or insulted.
I'm sure many of you have noticed a decline in staff activity also, especially our higher tier Staff. In reality they're just like our Jr.Mods, they don't have the ability to actually help, as Monarch gives no permissions.
Here's a PM I got from monarch:

We need to utilize this month so that we can start a new beginning with EGS. In all seriousness, your current work performance just isn't cutting it. Please, I really need your dedication.
We need to promote our Middleman Service more frequently specifically in ALL WTB, WTS, and WTT threads. And we also need to desperately start moderating both users and posts/forums a lot more because users are getting away with murder; I see a lot of spam, a lot of links, and instant messenger and email addresses being posted and that's not allowed. We're losing business.
If you can really dedicate yourself this month and work your a$$ off and do as I requested, every staff member will be equally compensated as a Christmas present by the end of this month. We all desperately need to work together and much harder to moderate users/forums and also promote services, so that we can generate a lot more revenue than what we have currently made this month - a pity $300 - and stash enough to make major changes as well as enough to equally share upon each other.
Major changes are in the making. I am counting on you to help us all progress to the next level. And I promise you that if you put in the time, effort, and work, that you will be fairly compensated for it. This month is the start to an entire new site and business model. I need your dedication during the rest of December (obviously excluding Christmas Eve, Christmas, & the day after) so that we can clean up our forums, weave out our bad/rule-breaking users, and generate massive amounts of sales & revenue. Make this month be our best month. Please, dedicate yourself and start working hard now.
I am hoping to see all the staff here really put in 200% throughout the month, and I am hoping that I will have the excitement to hold a staff meeting via Ventrillo at the month to share our success, our total revenue, and announce the amount of money that will be equally shared amongst all of EGS staff members. I am putting my trust in you to work together and to work with me hard throughout the rest of December.
See you on EGS.
He wanted me to Moderate and Middleman, as well as answer Support Tickets, so on and so on. He has the nerve to say my current work isn't cutting it, I just laughed back when I read that.
He has reaped what he has sown.
If I'm banned for this, which I'm expecting, I'll see you guys around. I have the same name in many forums so feel free to contact me. Some of you I have on MSN or AIM.
