Not sure why everyone is marking this down, I thought it was a good read Kirk.

As much as I enjoy this forum, it's not a welcoming community for self-promotion - even when people are delivering stuff that they think the community will enjoy.

Hence why I have been writing for a year and have only ever posted links here twice....

Thanks guys. I'm not really bothered what they think, if they get their kicks that way, good on them, must be really fun people. As for those that did take the time to read it, thanks a lot. If a few people enjoy my work then I'm a happy man.

It's interesting that people often post links to game reviews etc. and that's ok, but as Kirk posted a link to his own work he gets marked down?

This forum can be a strange place sometimes

"This forum can be a strange place sometimes"

Agreed you post here Jonny!

Good work Kirk!

Kirk, the problem with a lot of the posters around here is that they think this place is a private members club and you have to earn your right to be part of the `community', the way I see it you earned the right to post here like all of us when you actually bought something of Amazon. On top of that unlike some of the people who are no doubt marking you down you actually play games with people from here instead of swanning around all day talking utter boring BS. Pay no attention to the marking down, only a moron would let it bother them.

Kirk regularly games with the a few of us on the PS3 thread and is part of the regulars on Twitter, talking about games and other things.

He has as much right to post on here as anyone else. As you point out you don't need to read his threads but to say he isn't an active member of this forum is tosh. Lastly it's a public gaming forum and he is linking gaming related material so why is that a problem?

Don't want to start any arguments on here as genuinely haven't got the time to post often anymore and respect others opinions but the elitism can sometimes be stupid on these forums.

Who cares about the reasons why people use the forum. Whether it's to just chat about gaming, meet people to game with, or newcomers that post a link to an innocent but relevant article about gaming, even if they've written it. It's all relevant. There are no rules here except to be respectful and not to promote for financial gain. As far as I'm aware. Live and let live. And as said kirk has posted many times and even if he didn't who cares really.

And as the humongous great Nessy once said. If you don't like them put them on ignore or feed them deep fried mars bars until they can take no more.

I have read some of Kirks other stuff and its pretty decent. Doesn't seem to be asking us for anything else other than to look at his work. No problems there.

I probably won't read this link to be fair as I don't want to read an article about a bloke who walks a bout a bit and talks to some people before posting a letter and upsetting redcoats by doing nothing in particular. Which is a typical day for Connor Kenway sadly.

"Kirk seems to wanna take from this forum and never give back"

"If I see kirk posting I'll not read any of his links unless I see him be an active member of this forum. If he doesn't want to be an active member then as far as I'm concerned he can jog on!"

That is the sort of "regular" comment that stops people posting. You seem to think because you post more than once a month or whatever you OWN this place and anyone else who doesn't isn't welcome. Unless I'm mistaken this is a free forum where people can post what they want, when they want and as infrequently or infrequently as they choose.

I've never seen him post on here other than to advertise his reviews and it seems i'm not the only one who has that view.

Fair enough, some of you guys may know him from in games or on Twitter but the majority of people only know him from what they see of him on here which is just threads advertising.

I could also point out that i've seen many of the people on here who are defending Kirk's advertising actually doing no different to what the people they are criticising have done in objecting to someone who only seems to use the forum to advertise.

I can dig out threads from not too long ago when someone who had never posted on this forum before posted an advert for his clan(I think he was trying to pre-recruit for Blops 2 IIRC) and was negged and flamed to oblivion for daring to do it which is no different to what Wayne is doing IMO.

My view is simple, Kirk has the right to post his advertising on here if he wants(although I'm sure Amazon have something in their posting guidelines against advertising) but everyone else here has just as much right to object to him using the forum to do nothing but advertise.

I don't know what most people think the situation with freelancers and writers for smaller sites is, but we generally don't get paid other than nominal amounts and put a hell of a lot of time and effort into what we do. We do it because we have a genuine passion for gaming and want to share and discuss our thoughts and opinions with others - and isn't that what this forum is all about?

There is absolutely no benefit to us in posting links up here, financial or otherwise. We post because we know you like games and want to share our passion with others who feel the same. For that, we are branded as show-offs and shameless self-promoters.

You can follow the links if you want or you can ignore them if you don't, but there is no need to be a douche and have a go at someone just for sharing something that they have spent their own free time working on purely to try and inform and/or entertain people.

Who are you referring to Andy? I remember that thread as my stance was exactly the same then as it is now.

I think Andy is right about advertising being against forum rules - pretty sure that change in the rules is why the Clan threads are no longer 'Announcement' threads and aren't permanently on the first page of the forum anymore (despite the fact that, to my knowledge, none of those threads actually advertise anything).

However, if what kirk is doing is against forum rules, then it's up to Amazon to enforce those rules - not forum regulars. Like others, I personally am not bothered with what kirk is doing.

Post a link yes, dedicate a thread to that link no. That IMO is why the negs are there, wasn't there an AC3 thread already going? Why not post it there, can imagine it would go down pretty well. I didn't read the link because of the flippin pop up ads that suddenly killed my scabby works xp computer :D. Don't let negs bother you though, I regularly am 'marked down' even when I'm asking a relevant question, doesn't mean I won't keep asking! :D (oh and Wayne, perhaps the fact that some of the 'regulars' can be pretty nasty and quite condescending at times is what stops people from becoming 'regulars' in the first place.)

Now... Get pressing that no button -------->

Aye but you're a nob who wants to stick posters up all over the forum anyway. :P

In reply to an earlier post on 15 Nov 2012, 13:28:15 GMT
Your mum would disagree, the posters are all in her bedroom XD.
She would however agree that yes, I am a nob.
