All About Harlann
11Apr 06Yesterday, the final step was approved for a personal project of mine. It was a surprise, and a welcomed turn of events. With that...I will need to retire from web community involvement, not only here but throughout all the web places I frequent during the weekdays.
So folks, it been real fun...frustrating but fun, I wish the best to all...
7Apr 06I seem to be losing interest in this place again. I am having a real hard time with some aloof level 50 editors I have to deal with. Case in point….
I have over 60 submissions on a show I like. I figured it needs some work and I like it…therefore I’ll do some work. And hey, if I make editor, cool. The current editor has 900+ points on the show, so I’m no threat. So, off I go to work it. I do crews and summaries. Then I wait for approval. And wait I do…
Damn if this guy pops on, once every week or so, and approves just a few then vanishes for another week. He approves just enough, like a handful of low pointers only. What, it’s too much trouble to read a summary or two? But this guy’s not the only one. Another level 50 also has a problem approving submissions to a show they really don’t want to give up…so I get an approval of just one or two low points, then have to wait a week before they do another two or three.
I’ve just about had it with this ego crap. This site deals with free material content. And if the editors can’t be responsible enough to work their shows or allow others to do it, then what’s the point of screwing around with it here. I’ve got better things to do than to stroke the egos of fulltime TV watchers.
31Mar 06I had someone read some of the work I’ve been doing and said that I should go over to TVRage.com and setup myself and some shows there as well. Not knowing what it was, I checked it out. My impression of the place was…”yea, so?”
I got the impression it was a TV.Com wannabe. Nothing more. As I surfed around I noticed many back links to here on “more information” links. Many of the personas there are those from here. So what makes Rage any better than here? And as for that matter…why would I want to double my efforts at two different TV show sites that have the same format?
I frankly have an issue with people doing that. I feel that it’s just an ego trip…kinda like some high level people here hording shows and personality editorships to 20+ more shows and personalities just for the sake of showing off how many they got. We all know that anything more than a handful of shows, especially those that are still on the air, are very high maintenance to write and keep up. Some go as far as to approve submissions one or two at a time every several days, so they don’t get gigged for “Not working their submissions” or disapproving submissions on the minutest of technicalities…all for the sake of not losing a show they themselves don’t even work. The amount of show and people you edit doesn’t demonstrate how much fan devotion you have…just how much of a selfish butt head you are.
Now, I’m not talking about those that have many, and have completed work on the shows and bios…but of those, like one person, that has over 100 personalities in there editor listing, and virtually all have NOTHING but some trivia points listed for each. They dole out editorships to people that wants them. What’s that crap!
This is all too stupid for me. I don’t find TVRage to being all that. It’s actually a carbon copy of here without style. As for Bad editors and hording…I’ll tell you this…if you have a show that I would like to work on…and you pull an ego trip on me…I will make you work to keep it.
That’s a promise I can surely keep.
My Recent Reviews
Some people just don't have opinions. Like Harlann.
Harlann does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Harlann a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
