I think they vast majority of the concern is the "face" of ARFCOM on YT.  People who search AR15 on YT will no doubt bounce on the videos.  I suspect that most people would rather have a John Lovell or Colion Noir type as the face for ARFCOM on SM than BlueFalcon.

Andrew does good gel test videos but the politically charged presentations come across like infowars light.  I have never had an issue with BF at all but can see that a different front in the YT videos could be beneficial.  

We love GD and all the dysfunction that comes with it but I honestly was here for about 4 years before I stumbled on the gem that GD is for entertainment.  AR15s draw in new users, GD keeps many of the older users around.  YT is an avenue for people to find the site and we should want them to come for the AR and stumble into the fun of GD.  Y'all run the business as you see fit, you will continue to get my money each year as long as nothing changes drastically but think of mainstream SM as an advertising venue for the site and not much more.  We get plenty of news directly from the other users here and the newsletters are for the most part just recaps of threads that many of us have already posted in or even started ourselves.

Andrew does a great job and we are thrilled to have him on board. Why? Because he handles the role above and beyond and works his tail off for the community. He's primarily our news guy and as such his role is to educate himself and others about what's going on in the 2A world. We also understand that the YouTube crowd is different than the web crowd and that differs from the FB/Twitter crowd, etc.

We have other personalities we work with for different content and you will see different channels opening up that are powered by ARFCOM. (Podcast for example!) So if you think you can do a great job on the content side, let us know! We are always looking for content creation that has value to the community.

Honestly it's appearance. Professionals do hair, makeup, and a wardrobe that doesn't make them look sloppy or unkempt. GarandThumb, Colion Noir, and even Ian McCollum pay attention to lighting and  wardrobe. Beyond the obvious unhealthy BMI you can dress him up a little bit. People that come across as unprofessional come across as uncreditable.

Eta: As a fellow gentleman of size the best advice I can give would be to wear a correctly fitting polo or Columbia PFG type shirt with the arfcom logo instead of random poorly fitting t shirts.

Arfcom is a joke to the rest of the gun world and if you take their YouTube channel into consideration I totally understand why.

TFBtv should be considered a baseline of excellent YT gun content, and then compare that to some fat fucking retard making reddit NPC faces at everything.

I would say "it's embarrassing" but I guess if the owners don't care about their image why should I? Their industry sponsor checks keep rolling in so I guess it hasn't hurt business.

I'm sure there's a segment that likes goat porn [East Kabul allegedly], but it wouldn't be healthy to attach your business name to it unless you wanted to be associated with goat porn.  99.87% here on this forum communicate their disgust and embarrassment over the AR15.com Youtube channel and you ignore it.  If for some reason you must keep him as a host along with the childish video editing, just rename that Youtube channel.

Honestly, it’s just the professionalism during interviews with manufacturers that turned me off.

I think the straw that finally broke me was the IWI video during the PSA thing a year or two ago.  The IWI team was all set to be on their game, professional, serious and the ARF team came across as pretty childish.  The video is still up, you can pretty much see “this is the last time we’ll talk with them” written all over the IWI guys.

I don’t mind silly YouTube garbage, I watch plenty of it, but it’s a huge case of “there’s a time and place for everything - and this is neither the time nor the place.”  Based on the Shot 2022 feedback it hasn’t been fixed yet either.

We will be breaking the ARFCOM YouTube into multiple channels and adding others. As I mentioned, we want to empower folks to create content they believe in and allow audiences to drive their success. At the same time we want the news to be news and reviews/gear to be just for that type of content. This is the future of THAT type of content.

This is GD... gd tends to get the hate started and then it snowballs. I was following youtube long before arfcom so maybe that is why I am a subscriber. I must admit I don't watch the videos until a topic comes up I am unaware of or think will be entertaining. I am not so shallow that anyone's skin tone or beard or body type or even voice would deter me from listening to see what is said. It is a fine line getting a youtube video to go viral and becoming really stupid so I think whoever he is, he is doing an ok job. The newsletter is how I find many of the threads I follow so I have zero input there and would not change a thing.

Why are you dedicated to continue using the user formerly known as Blue Falcon (what a user name by the way)? The overwhelming consensus here is that it wouldn't be hard to find someone who would be more likeable and do a better job hosting the official ARFCOM videos.

Arguing that "there is a market of people who like him" while every single response in this thread is about how folks don't and won't engage with the material solely because of the presenter is a losing argument.

You might get some clicks. But that doesn't show you the entirety of the market of clicks you're missing out on because people simply don't want to watch some dude bumblefuck his way through a terrible presentation while presenting cringeface reddit bullshit as the pitchframe.

You want good gun channels? Go watch TFB or GarandThumb and take notes. Hell, watch 9HoleReviews and see what excellent content presented professionally can do.

You could put damn near anyone else up instead of the current guy and instantly improve even without changing anything about the content, production, or anything else that costs money.

I do.  Loving the podcasts.  Listening to the Tim Kennedy one as I type this.

On the thread subject.  I will admit that I had written off arfcom YouTube completely because I wrongly thought that it was just the o face dude on there.   If there is other content, I will start watching it again.  I am of the opinion that he is a poor representative, but I’m hearing that I’m not his target audience.  

I think most people in this thread have been like me and thinking that Blue Falcon was THE arfcom media.  If he isn’t front and center, then my main issue is negated.

The face of a product is not necessarily a "face" but a the product image. When a buyer (Users here) think of the site, what image do they want portrayed in their heads?  That is a mashup of their experiences and the actual images.  

Churches use this term often, it is the entire mashup of the Sunday service.  The people on the stage give you a feel for the church as a whole (not a believer but lived the life in the past).  In this case BF is GD at it's finest and like I stated, he is what people first see if they search ARFCOM and AR15 on YT.  He is the greeter at the door of the church.  If Alex Jones is who greets you, that may turn you away in a hurry.  As a greeter you want an inviting image that is not controversial at all.  Let the controversy of GD be found after they get sucked in.  

I look forward to seeing what you do with the site.  I have been many changes here and don't freak out at change.  I do feel all change should be to better a product, not just to change for the sake of change.  We see that everywhere in our lives.  These days, very few cell phone changes are made to produce a better product.  OS X hasn't changed the feel of the product in years.  Updates are subtle for a reason.  

The best update you did for us in these tumultuous time is the one time name change option.  Thank You.

You think he would have anything to do with Arfcom?

The reason Blue Falcon called the site racist is because it is racist. Not politically incorrect, it’s straight up racist.

I’m sure black folks are totally welcome here. Maybe ask Carnak? Check with the Dindus? Ask the Amish?

I’m politically incorrect. I don’t care about humor of any kind. But it’s a fact, a lot of you dumb fuckers are racist as fuck.

Well gee, those "mean" words didn't just get applied out of a fucking vacuum.  

Nope, wouldn't have to do with statistics or anything.  

You "warriors" must live miserable fucking lives to be constantly worried about what is and isn't racism.

I'm sure people getting run over at a Christmas parade isn't to you.  Like you and the rest of the resident warriors could give two shits about that.

I'd say there's a lot of competition with firearms related channels. They probably are bad about censoring and demonetizing gun related videos as well. If they demonetize your video, it generally will not have sufficient virility. Because they don't make money off it. That is frustrating. In that regard, Facebook is actually much better about this. I've won 100% of my review appeals there, and maybe 40% on YT.

As YT gets worse with guns, I would definitely look at alternative platforms.

You must have taken a hit from the same pipe because it’s all the same dude. One channel.

Lol. All this time and I didn't realize Arfcom had a newsletter at the bottom of the page

YouTube videos are kinda cringe. The ballistic gel videos were pretty good imo

GB, it's your place to run, but Jesus, you can't be that hard headed to not hear this same exact feedback on this subject, time, after time, after time again?

The guy doesn't take his job seriously one bit, and I'll be honest, I won't ever watch, recommend, or even pretend to like a single one of his videos as long as he is your spokesperson for your videos. It puts a fat, larping, annoying, and "just get away from me" face to our entire community.

I think I voiced it on page one of the original thread even.

You can't get a majority of arfcommers to agree on anything... except that the YouTube channel sucks and the presentation is cringe.

Hire actual video and marketing people. Two channels I follow on YT are LTT and DDE.

Linus is not a video guy but one of his first hires was a video guy and an editor.

Damon was marketing guy but has an editor and a video guy.

Some gun guy with an iPhone filming guys with pot bellies and asking stupid questions is boring nowhere close to the content that could be made.

I just always thought of him as that embarrassing guy with the weird goatee.

I can just tell he's got a collection full of Taurus and XDs, but he's been really amped about his new Canik lately.

Arfcom is a joke to the rest of the gun world and if you take their YouTube channel into consideration I totally understand why.

TFBtv should be considered a baseline of excellent YT gun content, and then compare that to some fat fucking retard making reddit NPC faces at everything.

I would say "it's embarrassing" but I guess if the owners don't care about their image why should I? Their industry sponsor checks keep rolling in so I guess it hasn't hurt business.

...and it bears repeating.

This jackass hates us, why is he still the Face of ARFCOM?

https://m.youtube.com/user/ar15com/videos

He had a video on his, 'separate'', video channel where he ranted about race. Why is this Blue Falcon still a part of this website? I cannot find it, but I still remember his 'buh buh buh' bullshit, erm fuck what you care about'.
