Moderation in this site is ridiculous tbh. I've made a video about a faulty keyboard once asking for some assistance and they deleted my whole thread because I said f*ck twice in the video. I guess they must protect the children from hearing such evil words?

All those multiple blatant Rabbit mouse shill threads, most likely made by the CEO himself that everyone wanted to be removed stayed while a review about a brand new mouse by an actual community member and his previous videos were deleted without any notice?

OCN really has gone downhill. I got my account banned too for politely and lightly criticizing their new forums design back when they changed it which makes you wonder what the mods are actually doing removing content and users without a valid reason.

Well it was a valid reason, just one I wasn't aware of or given any warning about and I've asked for complete clarification on the rule so that I don't run into this in the future. It happens I suppose. I just wish I could use my old threads to reference and just remove the videos out of them, didn't need to just nuke everything with no warning or even notification that they got nuked. I discovered it on my own this morning lol

And my posts have been mentioned to me in private earlier in the year by admins about missing the [Sponsored] title on them (because I receive the mice free as part of testing). So the content in them had already been reviewed by other admins.

I didn't do anything different with this post, in fact I opened an old post, copied the format and edited from there.

So no, what you're saying isn't correct and I also never say this mouse is the best thing created or even close to it. I literally reference via pictures in my most recent review how the scroll wheel has been a huge issue for people.

If you're curious too I don't have a huge audience so it's not like I'm making insane money from being an affiliate. I have over 50 mice on my closet, I like to collect mice and I compete in FPS at a high level. I enjoy the communities. There's nothing malicious about me being an affiliate, its a bonus for a hobby I'm passionate about.



I thought about this possibility but then why delete my other 3 threads from this year? I reviewed the Sunset (1st thread and it was extensive), I did a FAQ about the mouse that I literally spent hours reading through these forums to collect data on what features users disliked or were confused by the most to answer to try and be helpful to the community (2nd), and I reviewed the Phantom before this (3rd). All were removed as well.

Feelsreallybadman. Especially my 2nd post, took me forever to compile all of that. I think I read like 400 reviews on Amazon, every thread I could find on OCN and every post I could find on reddit to see what people wanted the most. Worked on that for a long time.

Update: Speaking to an admin now. I will get clarification on what I've done wrong and make sure this doesn't happen in the future.
It was not you I talked about when I mentioned hyping **** up etc, it was every streamer/youtuber (Ninja, Lupo, Summit etc etc etc etc), that push this mouse so hard, because they get 25% of the sales.

The fact still stands that your post got removed because you self promoted a review where you have a ref link/code where you get a part of sales.
Not that I personally give a hoot, but they have mentioned rules about this before on OCN.

And yeah, I can ofc link your, RJN video as long as I don't type "USE HIS REF LINK!!", since it's not self promoting, or promoting others with intent to sell.

From seeing all this insanity here people link from FM's posts, well I don't know what is worse, their crazy marketing or non existent supply chain?

They don't allow any form of sale or ref sales on the forum just like that, nothing new.

Menis has a ref link where he gets 25%, as every other streamer etc that tries to push this mouse to their followers/fans.
There is a reason this mouse is the best thing ever created, according to most streamers etc, because they get 25% of the sales
Yeah, especially smaller US companies love to do this lately, push products through streamers, YouTubers, any way to get exposure to their "target younger audience". Why? Well it's cheaper to send a free product to 1 person and get endless hours of promotion of them using it and talking about it than to go pay for endless hours of advertisement to YouTube/Twitch/... and hope their ads appear to the target group they want.

Of course then there is the issue of many streamers/YouTubers having no clue about what a good product is or no morals as long as they get $$$ from others buying trash.

So I basically am waiting on an answer for why I'm punished for actually participating here (and if RJN for example would have his videos removed if he were to come post here) and if I make written reviews in the future and leave my videos out, if the threads will be deleted if other users reference them and post them.

I think it's weird that I make a few bucks off of having 600 subs on YouTube and I'm called a shill and my threads are nuked but because someone with a huge audience doesn't actually participate in/care about this forum, their content goes untouched. Seems backward. I read these forums weekly, I just wanted to create content instead of lurking. And I can almost guarantee that if I'm not the one posting it in the future, but I make written reviews with pictures and don't mention being an affiliate, other people are going to post my video and I don't want to be penalized for that.

Either way once I get clarification I'll respect whatever they ask of me because I like OCN and I enjoy coming here so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
There is a deals section on forum to post deals to sites, but I think the rule of no "personal" kickback/profit links allowed persists. Why? So forum doesn't get spammed with profit links from everyone. Click baiting to get a $1.

You're way more likely to get booted out of place and shunned when talking negatively about products, many forums and places are mostly fans only, many game forums are fanatic supporters only and any hint of negative criticism that hurts sales gets you booted out.
OCN is fine, read the rules, don't post personal profit kickback links and you should be fine. Having a promotion code at the end of video and you linking your own video... that's kind of borderline, link to a link. Spamming a video over and over will probably raise attention to it as well from admins/mods. Plus videos here are often embedded so it doesn't even classify as a link to a link. Embedding your own video with a promotion/kickback, yeah, most likely against rules here.

Still no clarification so I'm just gonna assume that in the future I can post reviews and just not link my videos and if other people link them in those threads I hope I don't get punished for it because I'm gonna be doing reviews for other companies' mice soon
