    I have a youtube channel. I upload vids on how to install PC games and how to crack them. I get like 20k views on vids that are uploaded about installing. I could put the gbatemp link and logo at the end of the vid so that GBAtemp will get more members.

    alanjohn check ur pm
    I wouldn't do it, because GBAtemp has almost nothing to do with PC games, and noobs will go and ask "I didn't understand this in the video please explain".

    As long as it doesn't encourage people to come here looking for anything illegal.

    Yeah but..oh wait its vids about cracking PC games.
    GBATemp doesn't really need the extra publicity

    What?

    Who cares?

    Chances are it would just bring in more kiddies, anyway.

    Why would you?

    That brings up a point... the people who can contribute are often not the people who go to youtube to find how to crack shit.

    In general that's newbies.

    Like newbie newbies.

    what rydian said.
    Don't mention GBAtemp on Youtube unless you want a flood of newbie newbies.

    I'd say no. It would bring a mass amount of Newbs, and we don't want anymore 12 year olds like me here, would we?

    God no!!!!

    Honestly nah, the poeple who use youtube for that sort of thing aren't the people who we want here.
    There'd be too many "How can I crack [game name] and give me a download link" threads.

    Please, for the love of all that is good on the Temp, do NOT advertise this site to 11 year old pirates. We have more than enough noobs as of now, with the new Pokemon games coming and whatnot.

    I also find that Youtubers tend to flame and troll....alot. Either that, or they just hate me.

    No its not just you...Youtube doesn't really have rules for posting...the most you can do on your own video is delete the comments and on other videos is dislike them or mark them as spam. I see some of the most tasteless and racist comments on youtube...they should have moderators and ban some of those people

    I don't feel like we need any further advertisement on youtube. We're easy enough to find.

    But the thought is appreciated. [​IMG]
