He's always been next level, to be fair.

 

Have you ever have had a feature submitted that included large swathes of it cut and pasted from interviews posted online? And when you confronted the writer about it they accused you of trying to starve their kids?

 

Unrelated point. Just a question.

 

 

I'm sure he used to be a member here...

We going to overlook the bit where he cited Flightless Bird Acreage as a source in one of his Wotsit videos?
Not the kind of website you want to admit you are a browser of.

EDIT: Nice word filter there.

Sorry who is Flightless Bird Acreage?

A website whose name you apparently can’t write on this forum due to the large number of harassment campaigns it has been behind.

You're talking about redacted right?,  if so it's dead now.

Who?

George. He linked a redacted thread about the Wotsit in one of his video descriptions as a source not too long ago.

 

The site is down now that is true but I’d never count the vermin behind such sites as down and out completely.

Interesting, seems to have no effect on their channel unless bigger members on the community speak up about it. It's pretty disgusting what has happened to Martin though and I hope he gets some justice.

George's rants are amusing as ever but I'm finding it hard to unpick what the issue originally was. What was this picture? How long was it on screen?

 

A picture of Ray Harryhausen, and for a few seconds.

Hmm, had a bit of a revelation and I’ve unsubscribed from the influencer type YouTube retro gaming channels (Kim Justice, RMC Cave, etc), because honestly, they’re all infected with the same stink. From now on I’m try and hunt out more old-style YouTubers who aren’t begging for money and constantly  trying to sell you a product. Or just spend the time actually playing games instead.

 

I feel I should start a YouTube channel. 

 

Just a normal cunt playing old games and moaning about them. While drunk. 

 

No monetisation, no adverts, no sponsors.  

 

Even if I became popular and was offered to go on guest panels and retro events. No fuck that. Everyone stinks. Fuck you all. I'm off to play Fantasy World Dizzy.

The silence of prominent UK Youtubers tells you everything you need to know about them.

 

Either staying on side or not wanting to get involved. Gutless.

They’re in a circle-jerk clique, the big players of the retro scene; they get eager up-and-comers to research, write and edit their videos who are happy to be exploited in the hope of building up their own “personal brand profile” and joining the big league, while there’s an omertà among the elites of the scene not to overly criticise each other publicly. Whole cesspit stinks.

They're all able to live "the life" by making youtube videos about games for a living so they are naturally protective of the fortunate spot they have found themselves in.

With the way many people talk about youtube algorithms, channel growth, subscribing, likes, etc it does come off like the whole culture is fast and loose to the point where many who do make it become dragons keen on guarding their treasure. Should someone dare disrupt their treasure horde then they will respond by spitting fire until the disruptor goes away or burns out altogether.

A bit like the government.

I dunno, I think you guys are over-egging it a bit. Probably a bit of what you're talking about does go on. But on the other hand they make some great content - a few years ago who would have thought there would be a whole little mini-industry making semi-professional retro content jus for us UK retro-heads? And I'm sure most of them are just about scraping a living together from it rather than raking in millions. 

What these two did is blatantly wrong but it just amounts to a bit of stupidity really, hardly a major crime. And I don't even watch their videos (they're at the bottom of the league when it comes to quality output) so it's not a case that I'm a fan defending them. I just think using terms like cess-pit/circle jerk is a bit strong. Let alone the misogynistic and abuse-filled rants that George comes out with!
