I've just spent quite some time putting together a Tsunami 'how to' video. I took at look at the Moviestorm Movies page and was like...Whoa!!! Does everybody call themselves Delores now? The 1st 3 to 4 pages have been taken over by someone called Delores (2-3 days now). I noticed that a few good shorts have been relegated to no-man's land, Alteregotrip's being one of them sad.gif

If I was a person checking out Moviestorm for the 1st time, I think I'd run a mile in the opposite direction, unless of course, you're all called Delores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whatta waste!

Enough is enough. You don't object to people SELLING their models and advertising them. Of course I give all mine away. So what if she wants to sell her soap opera episodes. What is the difference between doing that and trying to make money selling models? I pay people to make models and sometimes pay voice actors too. By treating a new users this way, this community is driving away new users and thus hurting Moviestorm's business. Lets all try to get along and just be nice to each other.


I think what was wrong was pointed out earlier by this person:

I didn't realize it was advertising. I thought it was complete episodes. Well that is different then. One trailer would have been enough.

It is a woman's right to change her mind and I have done that especially since everyone started being so mean to this new user.

I think that most people have tried initially at least to be tactful however I find it equally mean and disrespectful to abuse the community and moviestorm site by doing this. Its not marketting its hurtful to moveistorm the company because new users watch those videos and they will only see a ton of tiny clips made mostly of stills and will drive business away. It wont help her sell her movies because people dont like being harassed and that is exactly what spam is its a form of virtual harassment. I find the type of behaviour of impossing yourself to the cost of excluding all others extremely selfish and mean and hurtful. I will honestly say that people have been quite civil in their reactions and explanations while the person on the other end is pretty much completely unfeeling about the entire thing.

If you want to defend the underdog that is okay I guess but defending poor behaviour and what is considered "poor netiquette" just because is not a rational or even right.

I read in another thread how often newcomers spam movie storm with tons of uploads I guess maybe I am an enigma then as the one thing I didnt want to do is upload a bunch of half baked things to this site when I realized how the movies were tied into the software pages. And I have a lot of really bad clips that are tests of me trying to get things to work which I could have burried other movies in but I chose not to. Heck I didnt even upload my santa movie or my music competition video.
