Ask Daniel if he thinks I act like a gatekeeper keeping out projects that don't follow my every whim, I really think you just don't know what you're talking about and it's very easy for you to know for sure. Ask them, that's what people who want to know the truth do.
You are a gatekeeper. Gatekeepers will often use a claim of quality control etc to deny others, but you're a gatekeeper. It isn't bad. Someone has to set standards. Yet you are the gatekeeper about what show is allowed on the quite successful LTBNetwork and you've further centralized all this power with your coin. It is actually all quite clever. You control a lot of eyes with your network. It is deserved. You have a high quality standard with a very well done portal. Not to mention your personal show is always very well done.
You declined bbx (mumble/dev hangout) in the past because you had some issue. I agree a lot of bbx shows have not been very good and you could give me a list of things that are faulty. I'd likely agree. I don't put much effort into it. I could put a lot more time into it, but I try to be effective given the time I am dedicating to it.
We're covering Dan and only Bitshares related stuff now. I've ignored pms from people wanting to be on the show. In this way the bbx show is also a gatekeeper, but we are laughable instead of formidable.
So here is my proposal for you. Prove to us you are not a centralized gatekeeper. We could come up with a few professional shows, but not anywhere near all of our shows. Only the best ones that have had extra effort put into editing and good enough base content. So you're only given shows at or beyond the level of quality seen on your network. Your time will not be wasted with rubbish submissions from me. If you decline it, well then it will be posted anyway. We will take our toys and go home.
I understand that we receive value and I would be quite comfortable with you inserting ads in our show and keeping revenue. I would just like to see the content receive more ears. Your network would receive an occasionally great show.
I'm 100% sincere in this. There is no being snarky in this post. If you aren't a centralized gatekeeper then it seems straightforward that you would agree to do this. Our show has never been used as a platform to espouse anti-LTBNetwork or anti-Adam sentiment. We have the same passions about the space as you, Adam.
