Why not link to the original article (http://www.reuters.com/article/filmNews/idUST23069120080327)...?

It's a lot easier to read than a post from another blog, embedded into your hideous, ad-heavy page.

Looks like very early Terry.


yet to come: long flame war on whether or not it's real "anime" without killer robots or triangle hair.

of course, any animation done in japan is real anime

flame war solved

the pic looks interesting, at least the guys look japanese. i am definitely interested in this piece, i read about it earlier this week and i wish they could show more now, but i guess we can all wait till the footage is restored.

whats even crazier is that one of the oldest pieces of anime footage was found in an antique shop, just sitting there. it's a good thing someone found it

Hi AJ,

Sorry about the linking. I can't really do that because it is part of a news website that uses a dynamic-link-changing function and I can't link it direct to the article. They encourage the embedding of news articles on a site to enable better propogation of their news (and ads).

Sure you can! You just have to post:

Read about it here : http://www.reuters.com/article/filmNews/idUST23069120080327

Otherwise people will just assume that you're trying to get more hits to your own website to generate hits/revenue from those pesky ads...etc.

MFA site... (made for adsense)

Hi Guys,

I subscribe to a news service that congregates all animation related news and sends updates to me. Then I update it on my blog accordingly. It takes a bit more effort if I visit the site where the news originates from and search for the specific article.

Also, it does nothing for my traffic. My intention is to build a strong network with CG enthusiasts and it is necessary that people come to my sites.

However I can see how this upsets some of you. So I will not be doing this in the future. If I do post, I will try to look for the source.

The advertising portion is built into the site to add value to people that may be interested in that particular topic. If you know Adsense they try to show ads relevant to the topic. If I tell you the kind of revenue generated through this you will laugh!

I apologize for any misunderstandings as my sole intention is to get acquainted with good CG artists and people in the business as my company produces a lot of CG work. I regularly want to engage and commission talents for our projects.

This is exactly why I don't like most "blogs". Even the ones that post news stories and add their 2 cents. In your case, however, you're just posting a creepy little flash version of a text article. It makes no sense.

The advertising portion is built into the site to add value to people that may be interested in that particular topic. If you know Adsense they try to show ads relevant to the topic. If I tell you the kind of revenue generated through this you will laugh!

As much as you and google may want to think that, it just isn't true. Yes they may have vague relevance to the topic on the page, they're all just terrible products or services they want you to pay for. (Well, obviously. That's why they paid for the adspace in the first place.) The most you can hope for with internet ads is that they simply don't annoy your readers. What you have done is overcrowd your page with countless ads that people can't hope to simply ignore. If they don't produce any real revenue, why not just reward these people that get their news second hand and un-copy-pastable with an uncluttered page.

I'm sorry if some of that sounded a little mean, I'm not trying to personally attack you. It's just something I had to get off my chest. It's kathartic. I think I'll start a blog.

Hi VanillaChicken,

No offense taken. I appreciate your feedback very much. I will think seriously about taking off the ads and concentrate on posting original content.

Seeing that you are somebody who appreciates good content, would you mind going to my blog and going through some of my previous posts that are hand-written to provide some info on animation related issues? I would really appreciate it if you can tell me if those would correspond as useful articles to readers like yourself?

Thank you and kind regards
Aldric

i've got a way to solve this problem

if you have a news post and you're gonna post in the news section, link to the original article

if you want people to come to your site for "hits" or "critique" or whatever then post in the general discussion forum

i dont think self promotion belongs in the news section,

there have been alot of "news" stories that are just basically "hey check out this thing i/we/my company/ did" those types of posts belong in the finished work critique sections imho.

i've heard of situations before where people will be getting paid to promote someones website by taking news stories from various sources around the web(usually a google search will reveal the original content), copy and pasting the text and then linking in news sections of various forum websites.

not saying that's what you're doing here, but what you are doing is still awfully tacky
