    Yeah, I hoped to hear peoples differing opinions put forward in a reasonable way. It was a fair question I thought, do vloggers/influencers deserve special treatment, only I didnt expect it would be so provocative. Disagreement is good. What's only frustrating is the self entitled gangup...

    If theres any chance left of anyone listening, I literally said this already.

    If you think fame is deserving of special treatment, thats your opinion, although I dont share that opinion. Well, I think you need to re evaluate needlessly bitter, I dont really want to carry on this dead end argument but want to distance myself from comments like this. I have nothing...

    Its true I didnt mean to cause anything heated or appear rude to anyone, I only thought it was a fair question. I guess in the vaccuum of anonymity people read something I post picturing some angry jealous guy, and now it seems like some petty Question Time debate lol. Anyway, everyone has...

    I would say exactly the same to you, as you evade the question again, and I dont think I ever tried to make it personal towards you and frame you as being 'jealous' or otherwise, which is a bit rude in my books. I would really prefer equal opportunity to anyone. Either dont give out freebies...

    Im not sure that replying to every post on this tedious topic is called ignoring. Unlike you ignoring the question of whether they deserve special treatment, and instead trying to find whatever 'gotcha' excuse to try discount the question. But I chose to ignore pointless strawman questions...

    But quite different principles really, its YouTube v YouTube, what people choose to watch when they go on to Netflix or YouTube is up to them. Maybe if they put something worth watching on their YouTube then people would watch, like most other big theme park YT channels (Europa park etc) Youre...

    Yes, it makes no sense comparing someone's YouTube channel to uploading to Netflix vs your own service. Alton Towers dont have to upload to Shawn to have a platform (Shawn is not Netflix / doesnt own the service), they both upload to the same social media platforms as each other. This still...

    No. Please, just read my post and not keep strawmanning me. Theyve made plenty money off backstage tours before. Lift hill walks. Also doesnt cost much to produce their own backstage or similar video and get a bigger audience on their own channel. What else you going to scrape the barrel to not...

    I spend literally all my spare time doing video production, I dont think I deserve it just because of that. If you also did lots of video production, you would probably realise too that it doesnt make him indebted by the parks. Well yes it basically is, that's sort of how algorithms work. There...

    But still Alton Towers Facebook has 1.3M followers, TPWW Facebook 45k Alton Towers Twitter 191k, TPWW Twitter 22k Alton Towers YouTube channel probably less cos they dont put anything interesting like this on there. I get why they do it, PR power, not every park is big, but why it happens and...

    Not anymore, they watch social media, which the parks effectively run their own TV channels with the most viewers. No it isnt, so I wont even bother reading your post. Unless Shawn's channel is Netflix or he owns YouTube You said that you wanted to see more of this, which I assume being a theme...

    Why can't the parks promote themselves, surely theyre the best channels for promotion? Eg offer backstage tours, a backstage insight video, and treat all their fans equal rather than just those holding the biggest power online. It would be tragic to see more things go that route, shilling out...

    What has that got to do with my question? Into a bigger conception of socially annoying nerds, who can get exclusive treatment through PR power by shouting into a camera? But my point still wasn’t meant to be about Shawn personally. Do influencers deserve special treatment?

    Do they of all people interested deserve it?

    Thorpe Park: General Discussion

    The idea couldve been ok as a mural. Looks pretty horrendous though, with the random donut, peace sign and flies... what? Complete with spelling error, is altogether a perfect symbol of Thorpe park today

    Duel: The Haunted House Actually Strikes Back - Refurb Incoming

    A Mystic Manor type revamp is exactly what Im talking about, not fixing things if theyre unfixable. The sets and scenery are half there. Today getting rid and starting again would never be able to recreate that level of detail or style. The ride wasnt revamped because it lost popularity, it was...

    Duel: The Haunted House Actually Strikes Back - Refurb Incoming

    But gutting the building would be throwing away half the work that's already done for them, just because the effects been so poorly maintained. Such a self destructive approach when there are other ways to create a big exciting haunted house (which is what it was always supposed to be). More...
