A new era begins…

Well, its time to try some new things. Old things are bad. Some new, better, cooler things will certainly benefit everyone, in my opinion. What do I mean by all of this? Well, if you are a regular member of my forums, you’d probably already know what I mean. Either way, stay tuned to this website for further details as soon as they happen.

Much love.

YouTube Fails

So I’m sitting here tonight trying to simply read my YouTube inbox messages, or simply look at the most recent comments on my videos, and I notice the site is slow. Painfully fucking slow. And not only is it slow, even when it does load, it is loading incomplete pages.

As most of you know, I have had nothing but trouble on YouTube this past year. If my videos aren’t getting taken down, there’s something glitchy happening or they are forcing some bullshit new feature on us. Currently, the link to my channel is glitched in Opera (the dropdown menu covers it up), but works fine in other browsers. Considering Opera is a very popular browser, why isnt this fixed? It has been weeks.

But back to the topic at hand. I go to the community help forums to see if anyone else is experiencing the slowness (every other site works fine, before anyone says its my connection) because talking to a real life human is impossible. Great customer service, huh?

I find no mention of the slowness, but I do find tons of complaint threads. One in particular caught my eye:

In the thread, various members are complaining of one of their favorite video posters being suspended out of the blue. They are simply wanting an ANSWER as to why this person was suspended, and why many channels post much worse content, but not only do they not get suspended, they are Partners. The thread was made on 8/15/09 and there is STILL no official answer from any YouTube or Google staff member on the subject.

I had some questions on a problem I was having on a week ago, and I figured I would make a topic asking what the deal was. Not only did a real life human respond to me, but they responded in an extremely timely manner (usually 30 minutes after every post I made) as well as answered extremely professionally. Now, YouTube is the BIGGEST video site on the internet (I don’t fucking know how), so shouldn’t THEY be the ones who have the best customer service? There’s not even a fucking e-mail address to talk to someone with if they suspend your account for no reason.

Speaking of suspensions, I could very well be next. It could happen at any time and there’s NOTHING I can do about it. Hopefully I can get the majority of my viewers (at least 20,000 of the 25,000 currently subscribed) to regularly visit my website from now on to see new videos and updates instead of going to YouTube to find my videos. But, that is wishful thinking it seems. The majority of people seem to be highly against YouTube’s bullshit, yet they still continue to use it? Makes no sense to me. I only use it to post trailers now, but I honestly wish I could stop that and just have everyone come here to see new stuff. After all, I can’t get suspended from my own website.

Leave a comment if you found this rant/blog to be the least bit interesting. Anthony out.

EDIT: Also, I’m not recieving proper subscription updates from channels I’m subscribed to, such as The AVGN. I can only imagine how many subscribers don’t see the stuff I post.

Finally done…

Alright, so I have finally migrated all of my old videos (including the ones on YouTube) over to the new site design (which uses wordpress, which makes everything much easier for me). My entire video catalog is on here, and they are in order for the most part. However, if you want to find a specific video, you would type in the search bar on the upper right “pokemon part 12″ to find episode 12 of my Let’s Play of Pokemon Yellow, or “team deathmatch 42″ for, you guessed it, Team Deathmatch 42 on Call of Duty 4. Looking for a specific weapon that I used in a match on Call of Duty 4, or a specific character I used in a UFC match? You can search “w1200″ to find all my games with that gun, or even “Tito Ortiz” to find all of my UFC matches with Tito Ortiz in them.

If you want to browse, you can do that to! Either click the “Videos” link on the left sidebar, or hover your mouse over the “Videos” tab on the top for some very neat boxes that help categorize everything and make it easier to find whatever you’re looking for.

On the right, you will find a PayPal donation button too. I’m not asking for hand outs, but if you feel like donating a dollar or two or something, feel free to do so. All donation money will go to buying new equipment which will improve my production and quality substantially.

Hope you all enjoy the new site design. Be sure to subscribe to the RSS post feed (in the upper right corner) to get new videos and updates from the site in your browser as soon as they are posted!

Anyway, I plan on updating the site even more over the next few weeks to make it look better and to make it easier to navigate. Until then, drop by the forums and chat it up with the community. BT out. :)
