I posted in the first topic about how we needed to wait to hear the Yogscast's side of the story.
Having heard it, I am definitely impressed with their response to the situation; and i really think Notch owes them some sort of explanation and/or apology, not just because of hurt feelings but because of the damage this has done to the Yogscast financially.
Before the debacle they had around 1.5 million subscribers on their main Youtube channel: now they're down to 1.2 million. A loss of 300,000 subs is hardly a minor thing, considering that the Yogscast makes their money off their youtube channel and the views they get from their videos.
As well, their official website is being DDOS'd for this incident; which is actually illegal. I doubt very much Notch ever intended for people to DDOS them but its still a direct result of his wild accusations on his twitter account; which was again very unprofessional and not what you would expect from someone who has such influence.
On another note...selling the rights to livestream their stuff without consulting them is a really bad move. I don't think the Yogscast are the ones who need to be taught some respect in this situation.
I'm glad the Yogscast managed to clear up the issues by making a mature response. I hope their response clears up things for everyone, Yognau(gh)t or not. I really hope tensions will stop rising now. :smile.gif:
Notch needs to understand, THE INTERNET IS NOT A TOY. Rumors get out of hand like a school made up of all grades and a collage built next door with a bridge club made up of ALL the gossiping old ladies on top of that.
I remember seeing a commercial mentioning that what you put on the internet, stays on the internet, so watch what you post.
as if getting banned from minecon wasnt odd enough now they say they didnt do anything is Notch lying
or is the yogcast lying e_e
Honestly, Notch has a reputation for openly speaking about things he shouldn't. It wouldn't surprise me if he got incorrect, third party information from somewhere about this and accepted it as gospel truth.
Someone, somewhere is stretching the truth...and I don't think it's Notch or the Yogscast guys.
I dont get it.. If they are denying this why couldn't they of just said it wasnt them from the start insted of "we wait till we are home to say our side"
From what I've read, it's because they were exhausted and wanted to wait util they could do a proper write-up of their experience. Public relations can be tricky, and being able to articulate you point properly is not something to be done brashly.
Notch was most likely drunk...he said he had champagne at Deadmau5's party and was wild. He probably lost understanding and flamed away...I know Yogscast would NEVER do such a thing, and Notch should apologize for what he did.
