Mm, you're right, and I apologize. It wasn't right of me to assume and it makes for horrible argument/discussion as it invalidates everything I say.
Any further response to the re-quote by Onyx will be found in my last post after theirs.
I think most site owners are well aware of this fact, ha ha. Which is why I personally let rants be rants (for the most part... there are times when an issue needs to be addressed). As I said, if someone has a legitimate suggestion, there are certainly options available for them to have their opinions heard on most sites. Rant blogs are not really the appropriate place to post things that you really want a site owner to pay serious attention to, imo. I doubt that that's what the creators of such blogs have in mind when they create them, anyways.I also know that it's impossible to make everyone happy and you're going to make someone mad no matter what you do. You can't win them all, but I think to be a good admin you need to realize that people aren't going to like everything you do and that people are going to criticize everything that's within their power to do so.
Whoa. There was nothing "implied" against you, personally. You said that you think that some pet site owners are thin-skinned, and I simply responded with my own thoughts and opinions on the matter, from the perspective of a pet site owner. No offence was intended, I merely expressed my own opinion.And as to the 'thin skinned' comment, I never said that you couldn't disagree with what the users have to say or that the users are able to say whatever they want to say and I ask that you not imply that I do so.
They really don't bother me because some things that are said aren't true - and really in the end, the people who make those rants are actually promoting your pet site, so it's a really win-win situation. Because bad press can turn into good press - such as, users rant, more people join out of interest.
Even though this was about music artists. I still think it relates to thread http://www.musicthinktank.com/mtt-op...keting-bl.html
Publicists practice this on the regular. A good PR rep will take a negative story and turn it around to show you in a more positive light. Make sure that you and your publicist are on the same page with the type of imaging you want associated with your brand.
If it isn’t 100% true, state that. No need to ride the wave of a lie just for the exposure.
Keep it moving. The more you pay attention to rumors and gossip the more you are taken away from the things that made you famous in the first place….your talent. Try to stay away from the social media wars, ranting statements, and other ways that can be used to “lash” out at a particular media outlet and/or media personality.
Well what do you think about that ones that basically ends up harassing other users? Harassing to the point where they name them, post pics with their account info showing on a screenie, and basically calling them names.
I personally don't mind ones that show their disagreement with the sites. But there is just one thing I draw the line at personally.
