Hi

I guess my honest approach has upest people, even to the point that my stargate site has had the voting poll abused " 66 i don't like it" in 3 mins.
It was done by a person on here, and i guess they have achived their aim.

All I wanted to do was to make a difference to the site by helping along the way and by helping others anyway i could, i asked for nothing in return and i'm sorry if that has offended anyone.

In closing i must thank alamdv for the wonderfull people i have found on here and i wish the programme makers all the success in the future.

Your Friend
B4

B4,
With all due respect

It seems that you wish to leave the AlamDV community because
ONE person is picking on you.
Is this the reason? The only reason?

Here's some honesty for ya.

Hey bud, pull it together. You've provided great services
here. You have contributed many, many times.
Who cares if a person doesn't like you? Guess what?
Some personalities just don't mix. So what.

If a person causes you grief, then that person has their own issues.
You should just carry on and continue doing what you like to do.
Don't expect to please everyone.

No offense intened here. Just one little opinion that you accept or
reject. No skin of my back and it should be no skin off your back
either.

Hope to "see" you around.

You leave? Don't dare to do this...
I may be a decade younger then you, but I'll kick your butt if you leave all of us alone just cause some jerk doesn't like you... Trust me! I'll come to wherever you live and handcuff you right on the computerdesk! smile

Really... You're honest, nice and helpful... If anyone doesn't like that, it's his problem... You know how many people don't like me? Still i stay where I am... Do the same... smile

Yeah. Thats a perfect explanation thing... I even have 2 example that have happened to me that I want to tell you.. The first one:

I joined the Brick Films Forums back in early June and I was happy there. But after a while, people just started to dislike me and think my movies never changed..... Eventually, almost every person, including the BrickFilms.com owner, hated me, and I got banned by IP address and have never been back there since. So listen, B4, if almost everyone starts picking on you, that is when you should leave. Now here is my second, real example.

I joined the Thunderpuck Forums in mid October, and I was happy there, too. Everyone liked me and I was respected by everyone. But once they learned that I was 11/12 years old, a few people there started picking on me... They, of course, are much older than me. In their 20's and 30's.... But they never did scare me. But then they just kept on flaming me.. The thing is, there are only about 4 or 5 people picking on me all the time.. Nobody else really does.. But I still stay there and post there, and go there on a regular basis. I've been there alot instead of here, for while now. But those 4 or 5 people can dislike me and pick on me just because they think I am annoying and because I am young, but I am still going to stay there.

Here you only have 1 person picking on, and I have 4 or 5. I am staying there, and I think you should stay here. Thats how it went and is for me, and I think it should be like that for you too, B4Uask31male... I just hope you stay. In the past you have benn VERY helpful, and you have created GREAT plug-ins, and you have even helped me out with alpha channels.. I hope you stay, and I really think yo should. Bye!

I am sorry you got flamed for sticking up for me. Don't sweat it. I'm not. Life is not fair. There are some very petty people around anywhere. Let them talk. It is only words. You know your movies. I know mine. When someone writes something that I know is bogus I feel badly for the person. Would you like to be like that? I think inside they look like Golem for LOR. Pitty them. Be like me. I check the votes. See the unfair ones. See a bad comment then look at a good comment. Then go back and spend time with my awesome family and play tricky. Spend some time with your wife and daughter. Do you think whoever did it cares? They don't. They would like it if you did leave. Why should you then. Don't give them any satsfaction. Everyone on here knows when people are rigging votes or being petty or too harsh or are jealous. Everyone knows the petty people. Be glad your not one of them.

Or, B4Uask, you should get one of those polls that allow people to vote ONLY ONCE. It checks their IP address to see if it has voted before, and it knows... IT KNOWS!! I dont remember where you can get them anymore, but I know you can somewhere. That way, all you will get is one response from every person, not 66 from just one person.

WTF??? i never thought i'd have to say this, but B4, grow up! so some child is taking the piss, if a kid come up to you in the street and said "I think you have a big nose" (just an example im not saying you do smile ) would you run away from them? No, I think not. You have been one of the most active members of this community, and your huge force meter reflects that. You stargate film was great, and the DVD copy you sent me was supurb, I enjoyed every moment of it, an I admit I was even slightly envious. Even my friends say its a great film, and that I'm lucky to share the same community as you. Don't leave because of one twat. Let it be water off a ducks back as it were...

Yeah, B4. I am only 11, and you are 31.... I am staying at all the forums I go to, even though at one I get picked on by 4 or 5 people.. I think you should just stay with all of us.... And, do you know exactly WHO it was here that voted that in your poll? If you do, then PM that person demanding an epology. If they dont epologize, I guess you could send it to a moderator such as Malone or Schwar or Tarn, and they can deal with the person. I know everyone here wants you to stay, and I do alot!

I agree with rmendoza, events like this is how they coined the phrase, "You can't please everyone". It's become clear that someone wants to take you down, and by leaving they will have accomplished that goal. The only question is, "are you goin' DOWN BOY?" If so, bid your farewell, hugs and kisses and don't forget to check in every once in a while...(some of us like prank phone calls) If not, I suggest you suck it up and build that plug-in I just requested!!!!!! lol

On a more personal note, the maker of this earth can't even come down here and get everybody to agree with him. rolleyes

Hey, I may disagree with you on the voting stuff, but that's it. You've provided a bunch of good films here and some cool plugins, so stick around.

Second, you didn't offend me in your post in the other thread. You can think whatever you want about anything I upload here...I just disagree on the voting stuff.

And if the person who voted down your film all those times is a regular here, I hope you get an apology.

I thought you were joking when I first read that!

If you leave who will tell me how to fix all my plugger problems? What about when I need help making a plug-in (and I have no idea what I am doing)? Who will anwnser all my stupid questions?

If it wasn't for you taking time fixing all my problems then everyone would have gotten tired of "the man without alam" and kicked me off!

Hi guys.

You really are a great bunch, I should have explained it a bit better.

My wife has been reading these posts recently and said to me last night ( i think you have outstayed your welcome )

But my main concern is i had a emial ( sent from my stargate site ) talking about borning DRAGON DBZ ( I hade no-idea what it meant but it was aimed hard )
I thought nothing of it, but guessed it was from someone on here as i made a borning Dragon DBZ addmittedly.

But when i saw my stargate site, my heart sank, the reason, i have been making deals with companies such as NEXGEN2K.COM i'm using one of their models and they are putting a link to my site from theirs and they will use my site as a showcase for the model.

Next weekend i have TWO magazines coming to see me + other companies I trying to get involved ( sorry if it sounds like i'm braggin ) but the thought of them visiting my site and seeing more " i don't like it" than what it was truly
15 it's ok
40 it's excellent
6 i did not like it

my main thoughts have to be to look after that site, and then thinking about about the comments i make on here about vote riggers and stuff, i just felt so sad last night.
I asked the maker of the site ( Domdino ) to see if he can change it in some way.

Your words this morning has touched me and If domdino can change it i will think about staying ( i sound like a spoilt brat) redface
but i have to ma

Who was the idiot that was playing about.

We are more than happy to fix any vote rigging that happens on AlamDV.com. If we are told we can fix it straight away.

Thanks schwar,

It was my stargate site that had the problem. BUT THE good news is ( DOMDINO has fixed it.... a thousand thanks to him for that )


I'm sorry about all the voting comment on your site, i'm a fair person and just wanted it all to be fair, but as the community admits the people are all different and have their own ways of doing things.

I will take my wife's advise and keep out of the voting comments, and if you'll still have me I would give my right arm to still be part of this community.

(On another point, i'm filming myself using alamdv for the making of the new film ) so if the mags don't include your product ( and i will push them to ) anyone that watches the making of will see me using alamdv )

Once again thankyou to all, it's times like this when you really know your wanted, i'm sure by reading the above posts that some of you feel that not many people like you, well you'll always have me as a friend.

is it possible for you to find out the IP address of this person? if you could find it out, you could ask one of the CSB Digital team to compare it to the users on this site (also, again if its possible). it would have been a catastrophe to lose you from this community because of one person,

Now look here Ol' Mighty One we shall have no more of this crap from you.........I'm getting angry now.
This site has some real top class people (also filmakers)and you figure at the top end of these and ALL of the members have the greatest regard for you as a person and a filmaker.You've passed on so much help and encouragement (christ you've got me trying to do a movie for de cinema) that you're a major player here.
So if you ever try this again I shall inflict severe pain upon you by sending you more of my movies.

I'm sure this has been said already, but I feel that it needs to be said from me: I am almost exactly half your age, (15 and 2 months)I think you are one of the most helpful and influential people here. I owe you a debt of gratitude that I might never be able to thank you enough for. (Unless you can take US checks. razz wink ) The DVD you sent me didn't work, but I appreciated the fact that you went through all the trouble nontheless. You have helped me with your posts, your +1's and the e-mails. I am glad you will stay (at least that's what it seemed like at the last post you made.) and if you left, the forums pages would probably suffer, and I would e-mail you every day to come back. Thanks again for all your help, and I say we get the guy that was attacking you!! twisted
By the way: You have a wife and children (at least one daughter as far as I know); I think that you have more to worry about than just people insulting and rigging you. wink

I'm 99% sure i know who do it and why, but i just said to coolkabe i've found something deeper than filming, i've found a family of friends.


I will stay, but restrict the amount of comments i make about votes and films. ( wife orders )

i have 2 girls and a 9 month old boy.

( i'm trying to get my girl acting, i hear it's good money wink )

The sad thing is i had stopped making home movies for 10 years ( last proper film was my " call it a psycho " 1992, but someone told me about alamdv and it got me fired up.

I've never been on another site where i posted more than once, but on here i found everyone was the same as me learning ( except solltha hes too good. )
So i hung around here, and now i seem part of the furniture.
Thanks guys
(ps. i've noticed a lot of rate points being handed out on this post, you guys must be really sentimentle ) sad
