Just making the rounds in the forum as suggested/strongly implied to be required here.
My name’s Dakota Potts, owner and author over at pottsprecision.com. I’m an independent firearm consultant, certified gunsmith and armorer, and super gun nerd.
I’m actually in the process of getting my LLC and an FFL (hopefully SOT) which I think will hugely increase opportunities to create educational content.
I’m beginning a migration of my content from YouTube over here. Some of it is several years old from when I was in college or just having fun after work doing filming by myself. If you’re not overly taken by the professionalism of the videos I’ve been uploading, I encourage you to stick around because I believe the content’s solid and I’m investing more into being able to produce videos that are more nicely put together.
I would be glad to be added to the producers’ group, I have some specific questions about being a creator and my account (for instance, is there still a partnership program, do I have a dashboard somewhere, can I say individual likes/dislikes on my videos) etc. and I think that would be exactly the place to see them!
What is the affiliation with USGunblog and Full30?
Hey Robert, thanks for your answer. I’m a little confused though. Are this forum and the complete Full30 site separate entities? Surely somebody knows the answer to this stuff.
Some of the smaller technical details will come with time I’m sure but something like monetization seems like a big deal, no? Especially when Full30 launched with a public stance of providing higher dollar ad revenue sharing with firearms content creators to support them when YouTube and the like dropped the ball. It was a big reason I put myself on the wait list as a small content creator 2 years ago.
Don’t hear this as me complaining… I certainly wouldn’t stop using the platform if money were taken out of the equation because the support and community has been great and helped deliver my content to people who are actually interested in seeing it. But some of the details on the management side of this business seem incredibly unclear to me right now.
No earning chart on that page. No likes/dislikes (don’t know if anybody else can see those or not). All I get is a view counter and a comments counter that always reads zero. Confirmed on Mobile and PC using Brave, Chrome, Firefox and DuckDuckGo. I will send an email to that account for sure.
