So I made a recent post about merberry here: http://mernetwork.com/index/showthread.php?6499-Sad-Merberry-Customer-on-DA and I decided to check out their page, and I wondered if anyone had noticed they're planning a total reboot of their company?

As quoted from fb:

Hi everyone!Today is a huge day.After nearly a year of work our Indiegogo campaign to reboot our business is launching!! We plan to take it to the next level and start producing the highest quality tails on the market as well as a bunch of free content for all the mermaid fans out there.

Please check it out, we're on a mission to create the best mermaid website in the world!

Now, it says no time left on the goal. So obviously they didn't get the money to reboot the business. But there were barely any posts/activity on the page for months.

I hadn't quite realized how many people were involved, according to this, 4 women? I'm just surprised I guess than, with 4 people working why so many clients don't get updates, some don't get tails, barely any activity on the page, and so many complaints. I mean kudos to them for trying to reboot the business but it looks more like a half hearted effort.


The project looked like it could have worked, lots of info and perks, but not a lot of communication. Then again, I don't want to see them just like Fishbutts, which seems to be what's happening based on complaints.

In the logo at the top of that link there are some double fins sculpted from clay......aren't they another mers work? (I think it may of been Jazz....I'm not sure)


Edit: They are fins created by Jazz....I just checked!

All those tails on that link look like Raven's work...They're just drawings, but still. The orange one looks exactly like your's Raina. And the other drawings look like Merbella flukes. I don't know much about Merberry but I didn't even consider buying one form them when I first started looking.

If you look at tails they've made pretty much all of them copy someone else's. I can't complain if people copy mine because my tail is a copy of splash.

The double fins were NOT created by Jazz! Jazz used them as an example on her thread to explain how extra fins could work if you read closely.

It looks like they got $245 of a $10,000 goal. Not a very successful campaign in my opinion.

Indiegogo, unlike Kickstarter, pays out whatever it donated, minus their fee.

I think they may be accounted to the fact that they didn't really put the campaign out there. I only saw one post near the end of the campaign from their Facebook . (How long was the campaign open for donation btw? The time slot may have been a factor in that too. ) or like some of you have said, people may have took more of how the tail designs looked identical to other tails and decided not to donate. But I guess we'll never really know.

yes laamberry was the users name, merberry was for the company. All tail makers are allowed a personal account and a tail making account

BTW- I didn't create those fins, they were just an example. I dont want to take credit for something I didn't do.
