And thus goes the internet shenanigans that TigerStrat mentioned in the other thread. Guys first post here and it is "Like my band, we need National exposure."
Never mind the fact that (and Im just guessing here) that there are no less than 20 different videos from long time board members and on NO occasion have I seen anyone stumping for likes.(which I have been gladly doing without being asked, because all these guys are brothers in arms as far as IM concerned)...... And the kicker here is that Cubensis is a GREAT band!!! They dont need to be stumping this. I wonder how many more message boards got signed up for to ask for votes, if you obviously came here to create an account.
the other beautiful thing about this is that bands are going to other bands videos and clicking dislike across the board just to bring ratings down. You knew as soon as they announced this thing that it was going to be typical internet tomfoolery.
I noticed that before February first pretty much all the videos I watched tagged in this project had some likes but nobody had any dislikes. Then as soon as some videos got posted on dead.net the visible ones started getting hit with dislikes really quick. And then as soon as a video drops off and one takes it's place the new video starts getting tagged with dislikes and the other isnt touched anymore. So that is not people judging the merit of the video, that is haters being haters. it is OK not to like something because it's not your taste, tag away! But to dislike as a manner of competition is just so stupid.
The person who handles my bands facebook and twitter accounts put a post up a couple weeks ago stumping for this thing and I told him to stop. This shouldnt be a contest, it was supposed to be a fun way to get a bunch of different takes on material we all know and love. The other thing I hate is wading though 35 submissions from the same band. Tag one vid and be done with it.
Cubensis dude: sorry, this isnt really meant at you personally or your band
, it just became my tirade platform
