I think you're just spamming you site, I can see no affiliation with 'Americas Got Talent' nor mention of a TV series.
All I see is an unprofessional, unfinished, host installed, free script site which are a 'dime a dozen'
Please define spam. We are not selling anything. We are not seeking to steal away members.
We are not directly affiliated with America's Got Talent but have merely been asked to scout for Pit Bulls with talent within the Pit Bull community by one of their representatives.
The TV series is a product of our own that we have been working on the concept for, for some time and have just recently placed with the Writers Guild Of America based on encouragement from this same representative. Writing and production is a cut throat business. Having had ideas stolen before we have intentionally be vague on details other than the series will be based on talents, activities and resources available.
Our site is in fact a free script set up to merely allow people to submit their videos of Pit Bulls to make it easier for our contact with America's Got Talent to review and for us to test the waters to see how feasible a TV show really is. Of the forums we have visited Pit Bull Talk seemed to be one of the best when it came to owners who were truly active with the breed.
From our experience with other forums and actual shows less than 1% or 1% of Pit Bull owners are truly active in doing something activity related with their Pits. Go to any show sponsored by any registry and you will see this to be true. 1% or less of owners will come to a show and of those 99% only take part in the Conformation component, which we do not feel is really being active in the true sense of the word. The goal of the TV series will be to show true activities for the breed and to encourage greater participation. Conformation shows will never change the mind of the general public on the breed. If anything these may actually cause greater division among its owners due to the ever changing standards of registries vs. the fad driven nature of demand and breeding. Anyone who is avid to the breed knows these divisions exist and are growing. The fractured nature of the Pit Bull community is one of the very reasons the breed is not accepted well beyond the Pit Bull community itself. Until we as the Pit Bull community can show greater purpose for the breed it will continue to have its negative stigma.
Until we can show the feasibility of the show to the producer there is a zero dollar budget, hence we are working with the resources that are available in as cost effective means as possible. I disagree that the site is unprofessional. If you feel this the case pleas help quantify this with examples. I do concede it is new and could use some polish. This is something we are working on. Free does not necessarily however mean unprofessional or the forum here would also fall under that same category of being unprofessional being that it too is based on a free script (phpBB). The same is true for most of the other Pit related forums out there. We intentionally went with a minimal base for the site as we did not want to take away from other forums. We could have went with a forum add-on but thought doing so would have made it more like spam as this would pull members away from forums that already exist. We do not want to do this but instead want to encourage site visitors to come to forums and professional trainers that already exist. This is also why we are offering free banner placement to such forums, trainers and other resources. We are not selling ad space to breeders nor are we providing non-pet related ads for Viagra, video games, etc.
There are several reasons why we went with a self hosted video upload program vs. YouTube. Number one we wanted to help insure that the content being submitted was owned by those submitting. This is why we did not go with YouTube nor have we added the available function for people to embed their YouTube links. Number two we wanted to be able to take the videos submitted and edit them into a unified structure for presentation to the producer. Number three we wanted to create a single source for viewing for the representative of America's Got Talent as well as for us for the TV series to make the process of development easier. There are other reasons as well but I will stop there for brevity sake.
Take part if you wish, don't if you don't. Please however do not seek to continue to publicly defame us as our intentions are pure.
