yeah Elric is awesome. i'm sure he will land on his feet.
and with the ad revenue that is generated by the users,no?
motherboards channel have still alot of subscribers
That website doens't seem to be right, i dont like it at all.
For what i know, i came to tpu everyday since 2009 and it was partially for the forums and partially for the design and news the website had.
There is one thing to mention: "it just got more clicks because of techpowerup news"
Well 20 years of service and getting screwed as a reward blows. Hope Channel Pro get what they deserve.
It's practically the same thing you know... Adds are useless without users so he prety much said it all.
Beyond whatever services ChannelPro may not have performed, the serious allegation is embezzlement. That will make anyone angry.
Especially in this economy... which is why I think he made an agreement with them in the first place.
I've already subscribed to his ToT channel and unsubscribed from the ... other. Also, I sent him a nice little email letting him know there's ppl out there that support him.
Yea... still a ton of subs on the old site... I guess everyone hasn't woke up yet to read the news.
yeah not seeing their logic here. They got a domain/brand name, whoop ti doo. He's the reason people visit/watch. So if he buys a different domain and starts anew what's to stop everyone from switching over? It's not like he suddenly lost all his brand contacts. (even if he did his name has recognition amongst the brands would still get him review samples and what's stopping them from sending him AND motherboards.org samples to review?)
its almost as if they said "we feel like we don't have enough competition so you're fired to go make some for us"
I mean a quick look at the site and nearly every single article and review featured on the homesite is authored by Elric Phares...
Elric Phares was a dumbass. He should have had a lawyer over look the contract. I don't wish this on anyone but sometimes you gotta let natural selection take its course. Good experience comes from bad judgment.
Mr. Phares will make another site that people will flock to I'm sure. I just hope he plays his cards a little smarter next time. I wish him luck.
I have never heard of this site. 20 years?!?
maybe your too young?
I first heard of motherboards about 10 years ago and its sad that this happened to it, I did notice though that the site was not changing for a long time and I do like his reviews so hopefully he makes a comeback but really . . . . . . he should have seen this coming.
And your perfect?
I'm smart enough to know not to sign over 20 years of my life work for 10% of the profits from that work and to later be fired from that work? I mean I dunno WTF he was thinking not having a lawyer look at the contract. I have my lawyer look at what socks I wear in the morning before going outside. Its crazy this happen to him......at the same time I EXPECT people to try and screw me with that kinda money on the line. Its human nature.
Mailman, you are overly cautious in most things. In this instance, yes, I do believe that you might have ended up in the better position, but at the same time, not everyone can be as neurotic as you are.
As to Elric...I have a feeling he will be back in short order.
This is true. I'm like Howard Hughes........only less smart and broke.
I think Elric will be fine. Hell Ill go as far to say this will do him good in the long run. Things like this end up being a blessing in my experience.
Loved the guys videos.
FU channelpro !
Elric you definitely need a hair transplant
so sad ... those M.F need a ......
otherwise u fans did a good job check this link
No problem Eric, I did so about 3 years ago.
dont you think he got plenty of $$$ when sign a deal in order to give a way 80% of his company... if not than what and why was he planing?
video removed that fast man . . . . . . . damn
Probably because as TheMailMan78 put it "Elric Phares was a dumbass."
I bet he spoke to a lawyer after he put the video up and the lawyer told him to take it down.
"After 3 years" is the typical take-over contract. It sounds like he was kept on contractually for the 3 years, and is now let go. He should have expected it. IT HAPPENS IN 99% OF ALL TAKEOVERS. Greedy much? Resentful much? Start over. You did it before. Do it again.
Telling peeps to deregister from Motherboard.org is just vengeful. Attempting to damage the company is not going to earn him any credits.
Can you imagine people here on TPU getting an infraction then posting flaming videos telling people to deregister from TPU. It's laughable.
