Except he (LordDraconical) simply copies things from coop and ice..nothing on his channel is original, except his vampire act.
I don't mean to hijack this thread, but this point really needs to be made clear.
I have seen many comments saying how one particular YouTube personality is better than another. People will go on their typical ignorant, pompous tirades about how this person sucks, how that person is "stealing" ideas from another channel, and many other obnoxious, biased statements. What these people apparently have missed is that few of these people are really doing anything "original." Most of these trolls merely saw one person do it before another did, but if they would take the pains to research, (Asking a troll to research is WAY too much to ask, though.) they would find out that someone else entirely did it "first," or that the originator is not known.
Even if the originator is a YouTube personality, and someone does something remotely similar to it, the trolls, instead of congratulating the person for improving or furthering the design, will post their typical, uncapitalized, misspelled posts such as "ur copyiing *insert name*." This is an immature type of nationalism: you should be glad for the inventor if other people are using his design or modification, after all, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," and you should, furthermore, be overjoyed if someone found your favorite personality's modification to be worthy of refinement. For after all, it all should be
for the furtherance of the community.
Therefore, let us not hear unresearched, unnecessary cries of "copying," let us not hear unfounded cries of superiority, let us not hear insult, but rather praise, when due, and constructive advice when appropriate. Moreover, let us not tear down, but build up. Instead of eagerly looking to find fault, let us seek to find all useful information that we can glean from their methods and manners. Now let us all be wiser from these words, and resume the task that lies before us: the furtherance of the Nerf Internet Community.
