    Call to Ban YouTubers

    Can AutoGeek please ban the YouTube influencers that drop their videos here, with little, to no engagement with the people that are here day in and day out. Specifically Stauffer, and OrangeVee (Pan The organizer) I think they are doing just fine on their YouTube channels without AutoGeek helping them.

    Re: Call to Ban YouTubers

    Without bashing anyone, and respect for everyone. When I started ďcleaning carsĒ I actually did pretty good. Once I got on YouTube I actually started to doubt my cleaning abilities. Thatís all Iíll say to keep positive flow here, was it there fault? Nope, now Iím on here daily and Iíve learned more from this forum then on YouTube detailers.

    I love this forum itís made me a better detailer, and those are my thoughts.

    I'll second that. Pan the Advertiser is the worst. Do what you gotta do to make money,that's fine but this isn't the place to advertise. I'm guessing most of the regulars here don't watch his videos.

    Re: Call to Ban YouTubers

    I agree about Pan. Actually I watched a lot of his videos, and until he really got carried away with advertising rather than instruction, found them worthwhile. But even then, I kept looking for his engagement on AutoGeek, and found almost none. Someone called him out on it once (during the Geat BeadMaker debate of 2018, I think), and he claimed his YouTube offerings were his engagement. Doesn't cut it for me. Your mileage may vary.

    I am in absolute favor of this idea! I come on AGO for discussion not for commercials for YT videos.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Yes, the great BM debate of 2018 is the only time I remember him posting for real, and it was really just to defend himself.

    Agree. Pan is the worst offender. He does the same thing in many of the car forums he's on. I'm not sure why they even let him post. Does good video work but is a hit and run guy with very little engagement. When he does, he's pretty argumentative too. Been there done that with him around throwing out or reusing wipe off towels when coating cars. Knucklehead he is IMO.

    Stauffer I like but I'm biased because he's a local to me and while I don't know him personally he's better than pan in many ways. Still not at all engaging even with me as a local but hey, that's on him not me, I've tried and would still welcome it. He and his wife are both BIG YouTubers and outside some issues related to their adoption of a child, etc. they seem pretty legit overall. In terms of engaging and interacting, it must be a personality thing they both share. Great on camera but who knows in real life they may be introverted geeks that can't relate. Don't know.

    Re: Call to Ban YouTubers

    Problem with this banning scenario is you have a guy like Loach (Waxmode on Youtube) that posts his Youtube video's and does engage in conversation here. I don't always agree with his findings but he seems genuinely interested in sorting out the good products from the posers.

    Can you in good conscious pick and choose who stays and who goes?

    Re: Call to Ban YouTubers

    Yes i can. Pan and Stauffer are the worst offenders of dropping videos for clickbait, with almost no engagement
