Adblock works here too. In fact, this place still lets you advertise through the gallery, a notable exception to ad-blocking as it's integrated into the content. And again: Apples to oranges. Freelance commission ads are not comparable to web-site ads, and this is the last time I'll repeat this.
on YouTube, most of the ads are integrated into the content. The interaction of the artist and the buyer is a free market, which is regulated by the parties to the transaction. Before the innovations, everything was going well, even people who violated the rules did not cause as much discomfort as now, when you can be seen for a few seconds, and they are all day. this cannot be regulated, because most users of violators are those who are not afraid to lose their account, and the administration against them seems to take sanctions too long.
That's not an implied social contract. That's a literal one. "I draw thing you pay me $x."
it's called market relations my friend
All this looks like unreasonable and inept attempts to control the artist market, as well as the fact that you cannot accept the fact that 90% of the content is made by the UCH and commission. Where do you think they come from? For the most part, this is the content that came from the reminders. and why do you put the vagaries of the public above the lives of artists who built on this earnings.
Because you keep bringing up the false comparison between site ads, and freelance ads in galleries. Plus, it's an apt comparison: If you search YouTube, your results aren't polluted with ads. In FA, ads (freelance) are. Not restricting them leads to the "majority" scenario described.
but the active members of the art gallery who produce the content suffer. You apparently did not study YouTube very carefully. if we talk about advertising embedded in content, then there it is ubiquitous. less popular users or beginners order video ads from already popular users. this, by the way, is also an example of market relations, which are regulated by their participants themselves. if you apply the novelties of the FA rules on YouTube, imagine what difficulties new users would have experienced, from whom in fact the only PR opportunity was taken away. everywhere such measures have a devastating effect.
Buy that advertising and you will get it for more than a few seconds. You get what you pay for, and it's as simple as that.
with new rules, reminders usually lose their meaning. Easier to place small finished drawings. I observed such attempts when viewing, which already indicates that flooding cannot be avoided. just people with a reputation and audience will be afraid to remind themselves again, while small accounts will continue to circumvent the rules, as they did before the innovation
- It's not my job to "find alternatives." Not my livelihood on the line. I don't run FA. That being said, I've already suggested one or two (one of which is "keep doing the same thing", the other being "buy ad space." Advertising works, despite the advent of ad-block). You ignoring them with instant "well those don't work" dismissals doesn't make them any less valid.
- They. Can. Still. Advertise. In. Galleries. I won't repeat myself again.
- They are not going to leave the site if it's their main source of income. That's a farcical statement not grounded in any sense of reality. You cannot argue "this is the only place we can make a living" and "they're just going to leave if they can't advertise *as much as before* (while still being able to advertise) for free" at the same time.
- I'm not going anywhere? I wasn't aware having a different take on some matter means I have to leave.
empty allegations without reason that the advertisement is working and the ad block does not interfere in any way have no reason. You say that this does not bother anyone, but the very existence of this discussion on the forum contradicts your words. you are directly told by people who are faced with the problem of advertising, who bought paid advertising and who have already managed to feel the horror of the update. but you keep saying that the problem does not exist
only in one thing are you right, the administration does not care about the damage to the artists, because for me it is not obvious what is the meaning of the new rules and what is their profitability. I can repeat the approximate consequences of this. artists who filled the site with content will leave the resource, there will remain people who do not do this seriously, do not spend a lot of resources on this. that is, high-quality drawings will be a huge rarity for the site.
only flood accounts will be happy
