Well, seems like RS is trying to get Dustin to be the next Fan Club President.
I'm cool with that, BUT not cool with the way it's being promoted. Dustin For President link
The post will make more sense if you click on the 'learn how to help' link in the first post.
Now, here's a copy of my post there, which I expect will be removed from RS.
Sorry to derail the thread Dustin, and if you delete this, I will fully understand.
Nothing against you - you have my support in every way except the $50 it costs us in Canada to subscribe. :mad:
However, Philip's post today has pissed me off.
On the main page:
I gotta say, I'm underwhelmed by the subscriptions...
In the report:
It's time to get out the support.
Those with current subscriptions, you can renew now and it will tack on your subscription to the end of your current term.
Can't afford it? That's not so unusual with all the stuff we have to buy for our collections; give one away as a gift to a friend, or ask for one for your birthday. Get it early even.
Or, go wear out your friends and have them sign up.
We need to get this thing moving!
And, finally, from the Campaign page.
How can I help?
You can help spread the word by grabbing a campaign banner and throwing it up on your website. Simply right-click and choose "save as" to download them to your desktop. Then link the banner back up to the official DLR campaign headquarters (this page). No website? Use this limited-edition campaign avatar in the forum!
I am NOT begging for a subscription to an expensive website fanclub for my birthday. Asking a friend to give me a $50 US gift out of the blue is ridiculous. If I or my friends were that rich to just throw away $50 ata time, I'd be joining up for the hell of it.
Finally, and my biggest complaint here, is that the request is to advertise this campaign on other websites, but Philip's own rules will ban you if you advertise another website here. Is that hypocritical or what?
Sorry, Philip, I normally do not like to say negaitive things about RS or you publically, but these comments are a pure joke.
Again, I want to make it 100% clear that I am in full support of Dustin's bid for Fan Club President. I just hate the method of getting him there, and the pure hypocrisy in Philip's statements about advertising sites.
What does everyone else think of this BS?
