Yes more giveaways would be great!

Also I think shipping outside North America would be good.
I live in the UK and would really appreciate that.

As for YouTube comments, I don't really mind as I'll be honest, I never visit really your channel anyway anymore because I find all your videos are better organised on this site.

Keep up the good work, you were the first website that I came to for reviews and my rig is basically made up of parts that you recommended.

Yea, I to wish all giveaways could be international, but shipping decisions are made by the sponsor and thus I don't personally don't have any say.

You should allow comments, I come on this site a couple of times a week for the cool and weird news updates mainly and I like alot of your poll videos and reviews(not that up to date with the lately because I don't want to buy anything but will watch anyways).

Videos on YouTube will ALWAYS have 'trollers/bull s***ers' posting comments so just try to keep ignoring/blocking them. Your a cool guy and I like what you do, just don't get 'pulled down' by the random bad comments.

If you think your videos have some rubbish comments, I have one 3 letter word for you - IGN, their videos are probably the worst for this =P

"Maximum, Game".

Well, if the poll is correct, half will "stay on topic & visit site". Realistically this is probably more like 25%. I might be looking for a "real" job soon.

Times are hard, there are no good jobs to get. Instead we need to figure a better way to generate 3GM traffic.

Love 3dgameman.com, and I like watching on youtube as well. We all appreciate what you do here Rodney.
Just do us all a favor and PLEASE don't go Facebook. I hope I'm not alone here when I think Facebook is way too over hyped and over exposed and over used by nearly everything on the internet. I think of 3DGameman as one of the last frontiers, a sanctuary safe from Facebook as a requirement for everyone to have.

The forums here are dying. You need to get more people on here. Turning Youtube comments on will help make you more popular so I am all for that.

YES! Liked and favorited this video. Going to 3DGameMan website to register now. Rodney, you are really an underrated Youtuber, and enabling your comments will help your channel grow. Youtube is a profitable business with channel growth, the top 50 youtubers make 6 figures a year from ads alone. I don't mind your website either but I ask for you to invest in your Youtube channel as well. Going to be posting this in the comments of youtube AND on your website.

My computer has be acting up.. reboot loops out of sleep mode and not doing anything when I hit the power button after a hard reset. I put in a new battery, not that the old one was bad at 3.25 volts compared to 3.3 volts. Anyways it's running right now.. ;/

Ummm.. I still think the newest videos should be on 3dGameMan.com first for a week or two and then later uploaded to YouTube. As far as YouTube comments go, we know they are 90% troll garbage, but that's the internet and expected. Either way.. YouTube traffic can mean more Google traffic, even if the comments are lesser in quality content.

It's up to you Rodney, look a the numbers and ask yourself what is working or not working. It's been slow around here if you ask me.

Personally, I think you should do what you think is best for you. I have no issue coming here to comment on polls etc and understood your reasoning from the very first day that you started disabling comments on YouTube.

Coming here helps with traffic and revenue, I would imagine. No problem with that at all considering how much amazing content you provide us with.

What happens if you only watch 3dGameman videos on YouTube?

Let's just say all of you watched my videos on YouTube only. That would mean little traffic to the 3dGameMan.com site. You might say, who cares about the 3dGameMan.com site. Well, if you like watching my videos you'll indeed care. Fact is, sponsors are concerned about 3dGameMan.com site traffic & not so much YouTube traffic. Little traffic to 3dGameMan.com means sponsors aren't interested in sending products for review. So if you like my videos & want me to continue posting them visit 3dGameMan.com from time to time. Think of it like supporting 3dGameMan.com without have to open your wallet. Remember, 3dGameMan.com is only a click away :)

Why should you visit 3dGameMan.com?

All my videos are on the 3dGameMan.com site plus tech news & a friendly forum. You also have a better chance of me personally responding to your questions & comments. And let's not forget the giveaways. It's simply a great place to hang out. Hope to cya soon :)

I dont care about pleasing ur sponsors, I understand that, but that's me, I think u need to gain more users, and more new cool gadgets, I'm here now because u had the best reviews on video cards, Cases and docks I personally dont care really much, but core devices like processors, video cards, rams, SSD drives, and things that u can really use to improve ur performance and that it can be measured. Like benchmarking.

U need to be aware of guys like this motherboardsorg that is trying to take you out of business, or gain ur marketplace, the guy has a lot of toys to review, but I just hate his way to review. He Is like a skinhead that just recently learned about hardware.

I'm sure u knew about him.

Whats the big deal here. Just give them what they want. its sure not going to bring them here imho, but if it makes them sleep at night....keep them enabled. i really don't get what the big deal is commenting on a youtube video :s I would rather have seen that you can see video reviews directly on youtube.
But! if you guys get payed by me coming here, then what the hell...so be it

I like it here, all regular users of 3dgameman.com are mostly geeks, so its like a more private place with no spam or stupid comments, but outside in utube might be other geeks who are not registered yet, u know sometimes when u learn u need to register at someplace u just feel lazy.....

But for me its just one more click, I really don't care if its here or there.

Personally I don't care. That's your choice, because I rarely watch the comments on youtube anyway.(Way to much junk comments) Thats why I visit 3DGameMan. Let's see what the future will bring. I guess that a few trolls will return with the usual crap. Choice is up to you Rodney. Respect for the channel is respect for the owner ^^. You've got my respect for 100% ^^.

Well, seemingly the demand is YouTube comments is enormous, although I agree with you in that I rarely read YouTube comments on other peoples videos. I guess it's the actually act to commenting on YouTube and not the fact that most never read your comment(s).

Comments on Youtube for general discussion, questions for you or opinions on polls on here. Sounds fair to me. :D
