Please help me with angry YouTube members!


Recommended Posts

Hello!

I was invited to join another forum that was Halloween based and enter their contest. (they like last year's Halloween show) So I did and it was the biggest mistake ever! I have left one comment on the video (it was mild compared to others) that I responded to. Before I joined I had a 5.0 star rating after 11 ratings and had just crossed the 900 view mark. I joined 2 days ago and now I am at 2.8 stars and only 90 more views???

I should have saved the nasty emails and comments I received, but I really dont need that negativity. Apparently I am hated because I put on a "show" and not a "haunt" (I want kids to want to come to my house, not have nightmares). I didn't know there was such animosity between Christmas Light People and Halloween People??? WOW!

I am asking for a little help in the rating department. Please watch it and rate it. And maybe leave a comment or two.

Hopefully you like it enough for a good rating.......and I hope this doesn't backfire!

Thank you all for your support!

Eric

Okay, this is all new to me. I created a You Tube account. I posted a positive comment. It didn't seem to show so I posted a second one. I couldn't seem to figure out how to give it a numeric rating. About the the best I can say is: I tried. Hope some of my effort helps. Others, more skilled than I, can probably help you more.

I have discovered that attitude from Halloween people as well maybe not as extreme as you did but it is still apparent.

The show vs haunt....I too noticed that too, but we have a similar terminology thing here on PC.

Christmas vs Xmas...

Some people here get down right upset over this here on PC about this.

I think this can be handled much better than flying off the handle like some people do. I think a simple explanation, and request, would go a lot further than some of the rant's I've seen here..

Sorry...off in the weeds a bit here:p

Unfortunatley Toymaker is correct but not just about Xmas and Christmas but worse off with static vs. synched. Too many people in this hobby think that a display has to have hundreds of channels of <insert controller name>. Build a display YOU like and don't worry about what other say. I liked yours by the way.

Wow!!! I worked grave Last night when i posted! I was wisked away with no sleep this morning to take my son to see Santa and I'm in line now! I checked Planet Christmas and YouTube and saw the response and I am all teary eyed right now. (just because I'm tired of course) thank you all for the positive support, I really needed it right about now!

The website was www.homehauntersassociation.com (I received an email invite) I only posted a hello on the forums there. I also belong to www.halloweenforum.com (for a couple of years) and even if people dislike it, no one is negative, all positive. I think I have even turned some people on to synchronized light!!

Once again, thank you all!!

Now if only I could get that kind of help with putting my lights up!!

Thank you

Eric

After viewing it last night, I left a comment here but forgot to on YouTube. I've corrected this oversight now. Cant believe there are people so cruel as to tear down a display over their idea of content. It would be as if I would say Richard H's display was crap because it didn't have a huge Nativity scene and a Santa display.

Some people really need to grow up, and appreciate great, unique work when they see it. If they want to do a scary, gory Halloween 'haunt', then so be it-- I can appreciate those at times myself. But that doesn't make your method 'wrong'. I'd hate to think what they'd think of some of the other Halloween displays PC members do, since yours is right up there with at the top...

Man,

Some people can be picky, rude and just mean spirited. My family thought the show was awesome(We're all fans of Pirates of the Caribbean and anything Disney) and can't wait til next year.

Unlike many people here on the forum, I can and did view his Halloween display in person. We sat in front of his house for a good 15 minutes. If you have young children, to keep little kids(5 and 7 year olds) still for that length of time it has to be something of interest.

I can't wait for his Christmas display and look forward to his effort for Halloween.
