You seem to have a problem with You Tube but you are quite happy to let it draw traffic to your website. If you really believed in your website wouldn't you delete your You Tube account?
I like your channel Rodney mate, and I support what you're saying, definitely. People are just too damn lazy.. I mean seriously, like Rodney says, you don't even have to register if you don't want too.. Fuck sake.. Keep doing what you do Rodney, and if I have a question I'll post it on 3Dgameman.com!
Respect from Sweden!
Thanks bud. I appreciate it :)
Every comment good or bad is money in your pocket from Google. Look at the song Friday by Rebecca Black, people posting thousands and thousands of negative comments over and over, but every time they click on the video to leave those comments, is money in the bank for the person who uploaded the video.
I think the problem is you did the "thank you" video, then these 2 "leave me alone" videos which are nothing to do with computers but are personal videos. I would say like most men of your age you are going through a mid-life crisis.I am worried you will be posting videos on your newly acquired motorcycle and how your wife no longer understands you. If you want to protect yourself from people then don't antagonise them, just ignore what you can't control or develop a thick skin and shrug it off. For what it's worth I enjoy your reviews.
So... isn't it the same to have 100 comments per video in your site?
You can have email notification if you want to read every comment without silly "diving" through pages, if you really want to.
If you don't like comments on Youtube, get your videos private and post them only in your site.
Not really, since not everyone will come to the site. It's kinda like a SPAM filter ;)
Hi Rodney, I went to your site!!
Congratulations! I bet you make straight A's in school and make your parents very proud. Keep up the good work! ;)
Friggin awesome and thx for registering. Enjoy :)
Norway suport you Rodney, or atleast me :-) Is there anyway to subscribe to a mailing list here at 3dgameman for your vids so that i dont need to go to youtube at all?
Thx bud. Yep.. here ya go...
I just wanted to say that I'm 100% behind you Rodney! Other than your own problems with the commenting system on YouTube, I hate reading a lot of the comments on there. I personally get so pissed off when I watch Techzilla and 90% of the comments are "This daily tip is sh**" and "Marry me Veronica!". This comment might be just as useless, but at least it's on topic. Although, I support you Rodney, I have to point out what I believe is ironic. You want your viewers on YouTube and 3dgameman to go to your site to comment, but why is it that I only get emails from YouTube when you upload a new video? I'm not saying that I'm breaking my mouse finger, I'm just wondering why you don't have your own email system and player just so you can be completely away from YouTube for other reasons than recruiting new users? I can imagine that money has something to do with it, at least getting the software and hosting a player, but I would think that an email system might be free (on your end). I really don't what I am talking about; they are just thoughts and ideas. Another ironic comment towards your unsubscribed viewers on YouTube; if they don't want to join 3dgameman because they think you have greed for ad revenue, umm... yeah... I had to wait 10 seconds to skip an ad just to see you on YouTube, and then I have to pause it til the ad on the right stops taking up my whole screen, LMAO!!! Regardless of how the viewers get here it is not a big deal at all to click on the link below, and I will continue to be a fan! Thanks a lot for all your reviews, and Q&As! They have helped me out a lot!
Well, you can subscribe to my RSS feed or facebook or twitter if you'd like to follow 3dGameMan
As for most YouTube comments... many are totally off topic, bashful, disrespectful.... and then people wonder why I disabled comments in the past.
I made it lol seriously i don't understand what the whole problem is i subscribed to u about 2 to 2 and a half years ago since your reviews are honest and right to the point heck a couple of the components in my computer were reviewed by u. I understand why you prefer us to comment on this site not just for monetary means for which i don't care a mans gotta pay the bills but to have more control over those comments and be able to remove(ban) the trolls easier. Anyway keep doing a good job Rodney i look forward to your next review!
I don't think you should disable comments because there is always a chance someone may leave an answer to a question that may help a lot of people. I'm really new to PC stuff and I've been saved so many times by a random comment it's ridiculous but I'm very thankful I found it.
Also yes people really are so lazy that they wont take the 3 seconds it takes to click a link and post a comment here. But that's the internet for you and someday soon the world....
I'm gonna hold off on disabling comments ATM, but I still have it in the back of my mind.
Maybe include that you don't need to sign up for the site. Most forums require you to register to post and then the persons email gets spammed with messages for products and what not.
I don't remember you ever saying that in a video. :P
True enough, maybe I should mention the anonymous posting at the beginning of each video review as well.
Completely understand where you're coming from here Rodney, and any serious commenting is done here, where it belongs. It's sort of like a spam filter. People getting extremely mad about these last two videos almost deserve to unsubscribe, lol. They're only logical rants.
That's exactly right, well said.
Don't let people get to you. Just ignore them. You may actually be fueling the fire by making videos about the whole thing.
but 3dgameman clicking that butten is just sooooo hard. it takes me about one second and that one second could be used wasteing time doing something
I know man, but you did it, you're here. You da man.
This is the first time I've commented on your site.... I really don't even know why I am. I just watched the video on youtube and got the urge to come say something in support....
Keep up the good work!
Well, either way, thanks for coming over and cya round.
I suspect his may not be as much about the comments as much as it is about your site not being as successful as you wish it were.
Whew... So many anonymous posters in here... I have total respect for Rodney and I've mostly been in there since 2006 long before the days of site redesign and enabling of anonymous posting.
Please, people. Please respect Rodney and give him a break. No one can change his path and who he is.
Hi, I believe that most of the comments posted on you-tube are just that, comments and as such do not require you to answer. Many are in support of what you have said in your video so are supportive and very few are negative. I think your rant was more about your inability to cope with a large response from the public. The answer to this is don't post on You-tube if you don't want comments. Your reference to making a 1000 videos and having 100 questions is a bit silly as you don't do this every day. if you posted a video per day and had 100 comments probably only 10 would be questions, are you saying you are too lazy to answer these 10 interested people? I think an apology would be nice, or take a holiday, it's all starting to get to you mate.
Keep up the good work rodney
Thanks bud and welcome to the site.
One thing i must say about the website, it is quite slow to load for me. Is anyone else having particularly slow loading speeds ?
That's odd, maybe because the server is in the US. I'm in Canada and it's lightening fast.
I'm in the US and I don't have any problems. Then again, I live in Pennsylvania which isn't terribly far from the Canadian border
You seem mad are you getting enough sex. I get that way when I don't get enough sex. I hope I don't deafen you.
You don't deafen me ;)
I bet people are even now posting comments/questions on this very video on YouTube. Folks, please don't get offended if I don't reply.
You made me break my finger... Expect to hear from my lawyers, by the end of the week.
LOL... Seriously, it can't be that hard to click on a link.
I always respond when needed to! Although, I don't have tons of viewers and therefore can see each and every comment. Whereas I think you only get 1 notification for all comments on a video posted in a given time frame?
Yea, but as you mentioned, that's different since you don't have the volume of comments. The other thing is many YouTubers don't have a dedicated website.
*huff..... puff.... wheeze* OMG, Rodney, are you trying to KILL us?!
Wow... another trooper... you made it man ;)
Can I haz prize? :P
The prize is this site ;) Congrats!
Totally took alot out of me :D
No way dude... You made it... You're a warrior :)
I commend anyone who made it to this site, I know it must have taken a lot out of you ;) j/k
