Why don't put beta archive 'commercials' on youtube?

We make a movie for eg about windows 7, put www.betaarchive.co.uk on the end, and rate it all high. Then we maybe will get more new members, betas and information.

Or in more possible version: more leechers looking for 7 and maybe other betas...

I don't see why we'd want to draw more attention to the forum.

I don't think it's a good idea. First of all, youtube is already full of crap :P. And as stated here, we got enough to deal with people just coming here to grab stuff. The ones that REALLY want to be part of the community will find us anyway by recommendation from others and net searching. And if people are looking for betas they sure don't go on Youtube to look for it.

And from a legal standpoint we sure don't need more public attention. That's one reason why Microsoft and Apple has left us alone so far, because we don't get into the spotlight. The better way for us to get noticed is if the members find others that are interested.

OK, good point. I really don't want that microsoft close this site. Then there is afaik no site anymore who has a FTP with loads of betas, and with good information. (and a really good forum!)

As I've said before, MS know we exist, but they leave us alone because we enforce the rules about access to the FTP heavily unlike some other sites who just make everything open.

Do they know that we exist, how do you know? Anyway, I suppose if some people who work for them know about it then they wouldn't mind, they may even be interested in obtaining things that they probably can't easily get internally, but I'm sure if anyone there who's business it is to enforce copyright found out about it they wouldn't be so happy!

Personally I think youtube would be the worst place to put it as not only would people post responses for their sites like you can others would post stupid comments and all that crud. We would also most likley end up with a bunch of bored pre teens messing around even when they don't give a sh*t about betas. Also annoying MS would be the last thing we would want to do.

I think Youtube is a wrong idea because if someone is really serious about collecting betas, she will find this forum. I had to search quite some time to get here.

I think the best place to advertize in on other webboards, or to users you can trust.
Although, I do agree with the main point of this post; it would be better to have more people. It seems less then 1/3 of ths posts here have to with Betas :D

Agreed, we've got/had enough idiots here lately, we don't want more. The people who get here are the people who've put the effort in to find us.

People who are really searching for betas will find Betaarchive. So it isnt necessary to advertise, because the people which this board want to be here, are coming automaticly.
