I want to know what everyone thinks of Unturned-related Youtubers and mid-large level media figures in the Unturned Community.
From my viewings, they seem to be bland and cookie cutter, using what also seems to be faked and unrealistic footage to try and get people to join servers which (from my experience) have been filled to the brim with donator-related thinga ma jingers. (but thats basically most servers)
I mean, I want one of you to play as a cook, get a massive helicopter base immediately started up in the middle of nowhere, get 50 customers on the first day and get night raided by heavily armed bandits and live by running in a straight line and then in a “please say I’m cool, I need you to say I’m cool by me doing all this!” moment, killing them without any staff intervention while still staying in the realms of “RP”.
Now, if you have been into my DM’s for my than 10 seconds you would know how much of a mad cynic I am. But I still find this slightly annoying. It reminds me of channels like Morgz’s, how they make fake videos on places where they can easily exploit said place to lure unaware people into their districts of monetization.
But I’m not completely new to this, I remember many times where a Youtuber like Fudgy would go on servers like Dark RP or Business RP (we’re going really old here though) and how they would tell the owner and what chaos insued as staff would literally ban players for saying hi and they would give them admin or move them to a remote location and rally their staff just to be props in these “real” videos.
This is where the most provocative part of my obsessive cynical arguement comes into play.
If any of these Youtubers reside in a region like America, by attempting to make videos on their servers or other servers while not disclosing they own the server and or are related/cooperating with the staff on that server, they may be able to face a violation of the FTC’s guidelines pretaining to the disclosure of an influencer or digital media outlet’s involvement with an AD.
This could even count if they place a seperate section saying “I own this server”
as the video could be interpreted as an AD itself as it is purposely made to promote and make a server look good before placing the MAIN claim.
The triggering claim might not have to be the MAIN claim.
This is explained by this clause in the FTC AD Disclosure guideline:
"2. When practical, advertisers should incorporate relevant limitations and qualifying
information into the underlying claim, rather than having a separate disclosure
qualifying the claim"
And on the topic of Unturned raiders, I think they are a bit toxic/mean, but aside from that, I am almost completely fine with them. The only real issue I have is how their feigned toxicity meant for comedy on servers can sometimes be visibly seen when they try to handle things such as controversies they get into. To put it into basic terms, they’re neety deety to be, aside from some moments.
I hope to create discussion around the morality and the quality/integrity of Unturned’s influencer community.
This is in no way meant to cause any sort of harassment or distress to any member of the influencer community and so I have attempted to make it as formal as possible so as to not cause any of the above to these influencers.
By influencers, I mean:
Unturned Twitch Streamers
Unturned Large Twitter Users
I put a lot of effort into Syntax, I’ve learned quite a bit from Trello touch-up contracts.
I understand and agree that there might be exceptions to everything that I have said in this post.
Now, lets make a poll.
- Many Youtuber’s do seem to be manipulative
- I believe that most Youtuber’s in Unturned are completely innocent and great.
