Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

Smug, patronising crap. Jog on. Ha! That wasn't being patronising at all. It was my honest opinion. And I had the decency not to name names but.................. Anybody who hasn't done so, check out this video.......... http://www.youtube.com/user/guv859#p/a/u/0/MHivR7ZY4OE ......then tell me, hon...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

youtube is not a high end tv station - its a portal for your average joe to upload whatever they want, youtube makes millions every year on that simple premise so i would have to disagree with you entirely. I would also say that viewer count doesnt mean anything, ijustine for example has a gaming c...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

I've just had a quick scan through the last 7 pages - had a view of some vids - viewed some others that YT suggested. I'd have to say that if you're not getting many views (or subscriptions actually) then it's down to one thing. Your videos are terrible. Some of the stuff (linked to from these page...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

others are clearly aholes even if you may not realise it initially and I find their weekly format is just parcel delivery after parcel delivery Welcome! Yeah, it's high time someone just set up a channel called "Everyday Is Like Christmas" and had done with it. Or maybe, "My House Is Full Of Crap: ...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

Nice piece of self advertising there, Kevin! It's maybe going slightly overboard to refer to your own work as "cool videos", though.

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

Heh, I wonder if he posts here? Nah, he's too big now :lol: I find it to be quite interesting, I think getting to the top of search results to be something strange, and very hard if you don't have a popular channel. I know I'm a bit popular on Youtube, at least my videos get a lot of views, and I d...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

Is he not discussing the topic? Declaring the topic "pisspoor" isn't discussing the topic, it's denigrating it. A bit like people who use one line responses: they're not forwarding debate, they're just being wannabe devil's advocates, or - to put it another way - lazy sods who would rather type a f...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

Don't be grumpy, crunchy! Why lash out? If someone feels strongly about something, your automatic response doesn't have to be ridicule and anger. I'm relatively new, so I'm being pretty well behaved as a matter of course, but being an old hand doesn't mean you get to be unpleasant as a rite of passa...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

Hi gmintyfresh. After some consideration, I'm not really sure how calculated this packages for shout-outs is. I'm pretty sure it's not a widespread rip-off industry, and it will certainly not have been how the people I'm thinking of will have envisaged their channel turning out. Originally, these pe...

Re: YouTube gaming community - is it all about bribes?

YouTube has created a whole new outlet for people who want to work in the new media, and that's simply sitting in front of a camera and barking your opinions at people. No insight, no jokes, nothing educational - just people's facile, pointless, ill-informed opinions going straight from their brain...
