Regarding the Mass Video Takedown

Posted on September 12, 2014 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (13)

UPDATE: I've been accepted into Dailymotion's official program. My videos will be distributed through them from here on out.


I’ve been purged from Blip.tv.


Since their company was bought out, they have drastically changed their user policies in ways that have completely screwed over a wide variety of independent content creators (especially internet reviewers) including myself and several TGWTG personalities. Due to their new Terms of Use policies, they have decided to purge a large number of their users. In July, I was blocked from uploading videos, and as of yesterday, my entire account and everything uploaded to it has been deleted.


Now this doesn’t necessarily mean the end of The Necro Critic. However, this does mean that I can’t upload anything until I find a new video host that will let me monetize my videos. While I do have a YouTube account that I have most of my videos on, their particular approach to copyright and fair use is a constant pain to deal with. Considering the fact that I’ve spent the past two months trying to dispute alleged copyright claims from the Spanish distributor of one of the movies I’ve reviewed, YouTube isn’t exactly a viable option in that department.


Now, I know some of you are wondering why I’m putting such a high priority on monetizing my videos. It’s true that when I started out that this was just a hobby that I was doing for fun. However, I’ve recently been struggling to keep up with the hardware required to make my videos. On top of that, a few months ago the bandwidth for my website had exceeded the amount that Webs.com allows for a free account. So thanks to webhosting fees, equipment costs, software updates/upgrades, and various personal finances, I have reached the point where producing videos for free just isn’t an option anymore.


So until I can figure out a solution to my video-hosting dilemma, my videos will remain unavailable from this site. Until then there’s always my Youtube and Facebook page. If you guys have any ideas or suggestions as to how I can handle this situation, feel free to comment to let me know.



PS: I'm still working on the my next review. Expect to see it shortly after I find a new video host.

Hey guys. I know it's been á̷͡҉ few mon̴͘͢͏t̨͞hs since my last video, but I've b́ę̵e͘n planning something really speci̸͡͝al̨̨̀͘͝ for this month. So keep your fingers cros̸̵̡s͘e̷̕͢d, and tune in next Friday for a special Hallow̸̶͟{̴̡̡͘&̴̸̸̢[̛~̶̴҉̷]̵̧͢$̴̕͢͟͏#̢́҉̴͝`̵̀͞v͏̡i̡̨͜͞ng review. See you then.

Forums are now up

In my six months of absence, something occurred to me. Other than the videos, this site has almost nothing to do. Since I now have 100+ members, I figured a forum would be a nice addition. Feel free to post there, get to know each other, and just have fun. Make sure to read the rules, though.


Also, I'm currently taking moderator applications. If you want to moderate my forums, email me a message containing your username, age, previous experience (if applicable), and why you'd make for a good mod.

Necro is back!

Hey guys. Sorry for the absence. I've been going through a few issues for the past while, both technical and personal. However, I have returned triumphantly with a new review of the most infuriating anime that I've ever seen.
