'I also stated that you may have had good intentions, but despite your intentions, this article has in fact been a major setback for me. I don't see how you can expect me not to be upset by this. Instead of increasing my viewership, you've probably driven away quite a few of my potential viewers who would have stuck around had they seen something else of mine first."I think you vastly overestimate just how important you are as a machinimator, by claiming that people would hang on your name, rather than your work. WoW machinima is a cesspool of failure. The good videos become popular (to varying degrees) regardless of who makes them. Nobody will remember you when you release your next movie, and it will be judged on it's own merits, just as this one has."And as for Nyhm I made a comment that can hardly be paralleled to this situation, I did not dig up something crappy Nyhm made before he was known and highlight it on a major blog as an example of his work to people who have never heard of him."This is not 'Machinimator's Showcase', it's a Moviewatch. It's the movie that matters. The only reason we're caring about you at this point is that you're making an ass of yourself in the comment thread, which does not bode well for the public opinion."@TotalBiscuitSo, I should have deleted Chapter One from youtube and Warcraft movies before trying to release any subsequent works, then? That is basically what your are saying, right?"Yes. If you didn't want to be judged based on YOUR work, you should not have made it available on the internet. You created this.. thing, you're responsible for it. The only two conscious reasons you would leave it on the internet were 1) You wanted people to see it, and 2) You were just too lazy to click the 'delete' button. Either way is inexcusable, and YOUR responsibility."I AM NOT defending Chapter One, I am not "taking criticism badly" I am am upset at having months of PR work for future releases undone in one fell swoop.'"You have something of an overblown sense of self importance. Until you produce something worth watching, nobody will remember your name. Even then, very few people will remember your name. People in this community generally only care about the product, not the person. As well they should too, because products should be judged on their own merits. You produced a bad product, and got justifiably criticized for it. You then proceeded to be a whiny bitch on a blog's comment thread and blamed the blog, of all things, for showcasing your work. If you don't want it showcased, don't put it on the internet. Simple as that.I'll tell you this for certain. Had you not posted, I would have watched your future work and not remembered who you were, and judged that work on it's own merits. Now, I will remember the whiny bitch machinimator who cried a lot and lacks any semblance of common sense. Congratulations on your new found infamy. You just caused yourself a little PR disaster.
