We need to have a site that does fill the niche to replace GamingOnLinux in the LGC fashion. Which means we need to make the LGC site bigger and promote it beyond Liam’s ability to reason.
Linus said it best, people are going to get their feelings hurt. Everyone will not see eye to eye on everything. Also When you carry your personal life into your work/hobby, you bring drama that makes you a target. Yeah his mailbox was crammed with about 1000 followers messages of encouragement. Sorry that to me is not big enough. Oh that’s right you multiply that number time’s 100 so you feel like you really got something. People who run around and copy and paste and release information with out follow up or even checking the validity of the source tends to get old. I usually look at GOL but if I see no mention anywhere else I look to the source it is supposedly being reported from. If I find nothing I then ignore it till someone else makes mention of it with another source in tow.
So with that said GOL carries no weight due to it’s practices on journalism 101. What I also see is hypocrites in the reddit, they say LGC spreads hate but yet in the reddit everyone of them is doing they say LGC does. What is so funny is that this is being said to be tolling, cyber bullying, and if it was handled as it should be it wouldn’t even be on the radar but yet Liam takes it personal. If handled correctly and in a professional manner Liam would be so knee jerk and wouln’d look like a drama queen from the 80’s trying to get attention to justify his feelings. He needs Dr. Phil, and maybe even Dr. Oz to help him out.October 7, 2014 at 6:46 pm #71856
I’m open to the idea. The problem with that is finding qualified people. The show has become such a monster it really does take all week getting it ready. No time left for us to make with the news post.October 7, 2014 at 7:09 pm #71857LapinoplMember
“Not everyone handles Internet remarks and negativity the same way as there’s also semi-related news today that Liam Dawe of GamingOnLinux is stepping away from his site after several years due to Internet trolls and in particular negative comments made about him by some other Linux gaming site I’ve never even heard of until today. “

I would love to see LGC site grow, I think one of the biggest problems might be the fact that a lot of people don’t get your approach, and finding the right people of course.October 7, 2014 at 7:54 pm #71858
“Liam Dawe of GamingOnLinux is stepping away from his site FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THREE MONTHS after several years due to Internet trolls and in particular negative comments made about him by some other Linux gaming site I’ve never even heard of until today.”
That would be more accurate.
Lapinopl I get what your saying but we built our approach on finding like minded people.October 7, 2014 at 9:06 pm #71859
Venn give me till Friday I may have a way this can be done. I have time, not as much as I would like but I have time. I am not PC so it’s a Linus approach.October 8, 2014 at 12:06 am #71861monstercam007Member
I don’t understand why people dont get LGC’s character? you may not like it but the concepts are so easy to grasp. Why is liam getting so bent out of shape. I really don’t get it…man linux is hardOctober 8, 2014 at 12:11 am #71862
LGC is a brand and the podcast is who they are. Being brash, harsh and honest about things is what they are about. When it comes to me spending money I want it truthfully no matter how honest it is. I am not PC and never have believed in being PC. Everyone I have ever worked for I tell that to upfront. You want someone to play politics I am not the guy for the job. You want something fixed and running correctly at all costs I am that guy. So basically I do the work someone else handles the clients by the hand. Always worked out well. There is a long sotry behind that, and I won’t bore you with it. So I turned into someone that tells everything as it is and if you don’t like it I am sorry I won’t sugar coat it.October 8, 2014 at 12:32 am #71864Freejack_ wrote:We need to have a site that does fill the niche to replace GamingOnLinux in the LGC fashion.

I for one would like to see a Sales page, a sales page as in where it shows games that are on sale, if needs be I’ll be more than happy to be responsible for it. It’s wordpress and I’ve been working with it for the past two years, developing, maintaining and recovering wp sites that are hacked.
If Venn needs a portfolio or a test run, more than happy to oblige to the masterOctober 10, 2014 at 2:03 pm #71902__eMpTy__ParticipantVenn wrote:He didn’t even make it 24hrs ..this time. I’ve lost count.

Dean Howell made a different account so he could come talk to me and say sorry, so long as I admitted I had plagiarized on that review I wrote for them in 2011.
EDIT: I did block him on G+ after he chickened out on his “article”.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to know what plagiarism is.
