Hi I've been watching your videos from a long time.
Just wanted to let you know that I'm now unsubscribing from your videos and website, I won't be using or browsing any of your content anymore. I will also put the word out to my friends not to watch you.

Have a nice day.

I understand your frustration with Rod's decision but to actually promote to your friends to not watch? What is the point of that? BTW, I guarantee those friends will visit at least once just to check out what's going on, so... thanks for the free press... ;)

I can understand Rodney's position on this, since I'm a web designer :P.. but yeah a lot of people will be upset.. still I think anyone that enjoys 3Dgameman enough, will probably visit the website anyway..

I am not very fond of the change, but I don't really care much as the reviews are good and precise. Not the bullshit we gotta hold out with other hardware reviewers. (linus tech tips for one, god he is awful).

It always amazes me that people will take the time to register to say they won't be using the system... huh? Why? You weren't present before, you aren't now.

Yeah, I miss the glory days of 3dGameMan, but despite the changes (here and in my life!), I'm still here. And it is improving. And as time goes on, more and more of the site is under direct control of the operator, not hosts and their whims. As a business, 3dGameMan is following the consolidation method that is needed for a solid presentation!

Rodney and Mods should improve the forum topics and sections, I think that would really make the forums more active, check out other hardware forums as an example :]..

"Back in the day," this was the hardware site. Granted, there were bigger guys, but no body did it as well as Rodney.

However, the forum portion and site restructuring has been a sore point with us old timers. With all of the strange crap that happened with portions of the site getting blocked off, the domain going DOA, and God knows how many just weird mishaps caused by the multiple site sources, I can say that where the forum may not be exactly what I want, it's up! And it stays up!

HP.com doesn't host through site publishers. All on their own equipment.

Microsoft.com? Please.

Simple lesson: if you want it done right, do it yourself.

Yeah Eire1274, those days of the server problems really screwed things up. There are only a few things left I'd like to see Zach put into the current forum. Maybe a forum navigation bar and PM's... Hard to complain because the website is working and there is less spam. :)

Yes, we are going to streamline 3dGameMan.com and tweak it to the max. Our goal is to make it so you want to hang out here, one big happy, friendly community.

I'm not bothered with this, most people on the internet doesn't understand the saying give and take, Rodney was kind enough to share us all this reviews and knowledge without paying for anything and the least we can do is support his website but no some as$wipes doesn't even have the decency to do it. Don't worry Rodney buddy you just keep doing your thing and eventually everything will fall into place.

Since Rodney said he makes his living off of it, I can see why he would do it even more.
