Mr.HuckI support this completely. NS is a global community. People want to kind of get to know the other people in the community. Let's face it, we are all visual. It's nice to see what other people are doing. I just get so pissed at some of these people who post nothing about themselves, but surf around fragging everyone else's contribs. It's kind of like walking through a cool neighborhood and having someone anonymously throw dogshit at you from a dark ally. It adds 0 value to the site IMO.
I think there's also a huge amount of value in actually giving all this awesome ski content around the world a home, and a chance for some exposure. In the old model it all just went to die, or was fragmented across a million other places. We want to give content creators a chance at actually going somewhere with it.
That is a huge part of the transition of Newschoolers, to really foster a super solid and successful content community.
"Some people like to create stuff. catch a feeling and try to pass that feeling on by example create art like ski videos on newschoolers.com."
"Thats the thing about skiing, when it looks good, it looks good, when it looks bad, it looks like a model airplane hitting a ceiling fan."
