williamsNot to add fuel to the debate, but I sat and watched every thread discussion about RTC get deleted since March. Like EVERY thread. I was happy to see everyone hyped about a project I put a ton of work into, but not so rad to see every mention of it get flushed from the internet. I would understand if you guys were taking down Freeskier related news articles etc being posted, thats your competition, I get that. But threads in a forum?
THAT SAID, Mods have been a lot better about not deleting discussions about it since the first episode dropped. Thanks for letting things be.
Glad everyones enjoying RTC so far. Shits about to get a lot more interesting in the next few episodes.
Over and out.
There was a brief period where this happened. Yes, you are correct and I should have been more forthright about that.
Behind the scenes, we were trying to actually get them to embed articles about it, post videos, etc. and they were extremely unco-operative. Adding that to the fact that this blacklist of our producers was something we've been dealing with for a long time and some of our guys got angry and started deleting.
However, Freeskier called us very upset that we were doing this, and wanted to work something out. We simply stated that we wanted them to be more involved. Stop not letting us share your stuff, participate in our system as yourselves - not simply as faceless aliases - and we want very badly to promote what you guys are doing.
Even though we never managed to get the partnership we were looking for, we again put a nix on anyone deleting anything related to Freeskier. If a thread gets too dumb and it involves freeskier - just like any other topic - we will certainly delete it.
So yes, there was a momentary time when that happened, but it was very brief. This time though, we have not been doing any of that.
What I want is for all Skiers to work together. We're a small industry, and we need to stick together. Sadly, the competition between businesses I guess gets in the way of that from time to time.
