I know I can add people to the block list, I'm just trying to say I don't really like the fact that the only reason some people use this forum is to promote their YouTube channels. And if I sound like a sour mr. Grinch and I'm totally wrong, someone please tell me.

I'm sorry if I'm coming across as some sort of hater, unworthy of MCber person, I just feel that it isn't the right thing to use these forums for personal gain and not actually participate in anything.
Ouch, my toes hurt... Oh wait, you were talking about wolf... right?...


Making "money" off a youtube channel is very hard to do... I finally got to the threshold where they pay you after 3 years and just like most other youtubers, they kicked my account for "possible" invalid clicks... Not that I had any, just the possibility.

Trust me, there is NO money in paintball videos. Guys that make content do it for the love of the game, and capturing their kills, and sharing. Posting on here and other forums is a way to show others their (non paid) hard work...

I have spent thousands on gear to produce my weak videos. Sometimes you make one that you feel is better than just the regular "video" thread... So you post a thread for discussion. Personally, I think a good video showcasing something is much better than just describing it in words. Course I love film, so maybe that is just me...

Making online video content is rough business, so many haters out there, so many guys don't even bother putting their stuff out there on forums. They just make it and leave it on youtube. But, I know for a fact, you can really drive views if you post it all over, and if the video is good... Tons more will follow. Good video of our sport only helps grow the sport. Too bad there is so much bad video that it is hard for the fans to find the good stuff...

I see where Bloop is coming from. It's kind of a bummer to see people just post something on MCB and never check the thread again. But Wolf's a huge supporter of the sport, especially for players who aren't into the super pro tournament teams and what not. Unless you're looking at the thread through the lens of "oh just another youtube guy promoting his crap", it's just going to be a video producer trying to share another cool video with other paintballers.

Personally, that kill streak was worth the separate thread. That's not something you see all the time, and if he posted it in the video thread, not many folks would've seen it. And if ya think EVERYONE looks at the video thread often, I'd think we'd have more videos!

As well, if he really just wanted to promo his stuff as opposed to sharing a cool video that happened to be his top 5, he probably would've shared the other 4 episodes.

Whatever, I guess we all have our pet peeves! Doesn't bother me too much I guess.

I made 109 dollars in 1 year of my paintball youtube channel. I have around 551 subs and some 80 videos.

Thanks for understanding where I'm coming from. You do have a point there though....that awesome vid would have not gotten as many views as it would've in our dedicated thread.

To the OP, Thanks for sharing!!

To Bloop and Side-Swipe: Since when did it become policy requiring or advising us to post our videos in the "Paintball Video Thread"? And, why do you two feel the need to criticize those who don't put their videos there?

Personally, I would dislike it if some random dude showed up here and posted up for us to watch a video his firearms channel, and then left. However, since this is a paintball site, if someone wants to share something paintball related I don't think their sharing privaledge should be based on 'how much they participate'. Maybe they have reasons for spending more, or most of their time on other sites but yet, they want to share.

I don't even mind when an event promoter creates a thread for their event, and then rarely if ever revisits to answer questions, and fails to post up the cancellation. It irks me a bit but, not enough to even feel the need to call them out.

I would even tolerate someone coming here and telling folks to join their paintball-related forum but, in my opinion, they better offer something that this site doesn't have.
