Denied a 4th time, c'est la vie. Probably for the best anyway.

At least we now know where your heart was.

We knew that since he started the thread. Well since he first posted question. Well, really since his phone vibrated and so a PM from you.

This isn't about DDF. It's about DDMS. And if you don't understand the advantage to DDMS of having more visitors on the site--"chasers of the hobby" or otherwise--then you apparently don't understand the business model.

All else equal, more people = more revenue.
How does more people on DDF = more people in DDMS?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

More chasers of the "extravaganza that goes on in The Hobby" is the last thing DDF needs.

No. More people on DDMS = more revenue. Nothing to do with more people being on DDF.

Nobody claimed otherwise. Did you read the post I was responding to, or my post?

<facepalm>

1) It wasn't my original point, but even this should be obvious. More people on the site is more people on the site. DDMS to DDF and vice versa.
2) You've (again?) missed the point: A post was made asking, "On a side note, what happened to having TRs on DDMS? If Dan can't catch up with his own why not post some great other ones from DDF?" You responded: "More chasers of the "extravaganza that goes on in The Hobby" is the last thing DDF needs."

I said, this isn't about DDF. It's about posting TRs from DDF to DDMS.

If it is not apparent by now, more traffic on DDMS/DDF/the site = more revenue.

I am not sure about your question as to why more DDF = more DDMS as the point was that more DDMS users = more revenue.

[Either way, to answer it anyways as it actually can be: More DDF users > Hopefully more TRs > More DDMS TRs > More DDMS users.]

I asked if you read the post I was responding to. A simple no would've sufficed.
He said that TRs would get more followers on the forums, to which I responded that the forums doesn't need more followers.
On a side note, if DDF TRs are being posted, yours should definitely be first in line. Undoubtedly some of the finest content ever produced on DDF, IMO.

I see where what caused the confusion and amended it. The DDMS/Twitter followers will create more revenue. DDF Followers is not what it is about but could also - in theory - help.

Gd bless UA for refusing to change my flight. Couldn't be happier with their decision :D
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
