Afternoon guys, I know the title looks weird but I always get confused as to what words I should and shouldn’t be capitalising.
I used to be a part of the Card Flourishing/Cardistry community a few years ago, and there was always a great emphasis put on videos. Whenever a new one would come out loads of people would watch it, comment on it, share it etc etc
However I’ve noticed that within the yoyoing community most videos seem to go under-appreciated. There are videos that obviously have had a lot of effort put into them sitting on the forum with no comments and little views and it seems a shame.
I know that the yoyoing world seems to be largely around competing, but it seems a shame to me that so much hard work goes unrecognised. Heck even yoyonews, which is pretty much THE place for new videos never seems to have any comments or anything.
Why is this? I’ve only been yoyoing since earlier this year so perhaps I missed a “video-boom” or something, so I’d like to hear from you more experienced guys.
I considered personally making a media site dedicated to yoyo videos where people could upload, rate/10 based on numerous factors (editing, moves, originality, theme etc), comment on etc and videos could be showcased as most popular/highest rated, editors pic and what not. I’ve enquired a few web developers about the project as well as looked up hosting fees and domains, but I fear that even if I did have the time to make it happen, it’d just be a barren wasteland.
I’m not sure it’s worth pursuing considering the amount of work involved if it doesn’t accomplish anything. I’m normally the last guy to willingly take on any unneccesary work/burden, but I think that it would be nice for people to get the recognition that they deserve without having to win a major contest.
Would like to hear your thoughts/opinions.
CLIFFS! For you TL;DR fellows.
- Used to be part of Cardistry community that focused on/appreciated videos a lot.
- A lot of yoyo videos made go unseen/under appreciated, why?
- Considering making dedicated yoyo media site, not sure if worth the hassle.
