I feel as if you guys at DiabloFans.com are not considering the development of conversation. just because I am a youtuber does not mean I am focusing on " revenue " it's the total opposite... personality does not stream through forums to capture the idea or emotion towards a topic is way easier to film.
now I would understand if I was posting in a Diablo ONLY section of the forums but I simply am not. ( I will copy and paste what General Discussion states )
#2 If you read the link at the top of every page (Forum Guidelines), it mentions:
Videos and Streams
If you want your stream to be added to the Streams section, post in this thread. Do not create a thread to advertise your stream or attempt to advertise your stream otherwise - we will delete such threads/posts without a notification.
If you have created a video about any Diablo 3 content, be it a class guide, footage of you killing monsters, or a discussion about the game's features, feel free to post this on our forums. However, please note the following rules:
A user is allowed to post a video, only if the video is used to to start up a topic with a meaningful and constructive discussion.
The post that contains the video must have all the important information in text form as well, such that members who can't watch the video can participate in the discussion as well. In particular, if you're showcasing a new build, make sure to post a link to your build (for example by using our Build tool or the official build calculator).
The video and its contents must be in line with the forum rules as well as Blizzard's Terms of Service.
Video threads that we feel are just about advertising your channel and do not provide basis for a constructive and meaningful discussion will be deleted without a notification.
Your video had nothing to do w/ D3, didn't include any info in text form, and as such did not constitute a meaningful post.
Ellixim's point #2 put it perfectly. We do have some threads about other games (though not many - those forums were way more active before the release of D3, when DFans had a very different user base); but posting in this subforum does not mean one can ignore our general rules, such as regarding video posts.
One thing I'd like to add is that our forum rules are not something we as moderators came up with to impose guidelines on the community. Rather, I'd like to see the rules as generalized, abstract guidelines that we derived from the wishes expressed by our community (especially the video section in our rules is based on requests by many regular DFans members). Our job as moderators is to consider those rules as guidance to mediate when necessary. As for your posts, the community's feedback was unanimous that the video rules' violation outweighed the community's benefit (regarding the potential discussion of other games).
