That corresponds practically to the day of when I started posting about LowRider 3 build info, etc. Here are the first LR3 videos I published, with dates:
May 28, 2022
LowRider3 progress - both Z Assemblies working!
May 29, 2022
LowRider 3 MPCNC - Beam Assembly (X-Gantry Structure) - first phase - tips
Now, my channel is still a long way from setting the world on fire, and with only 1,809 views and 6,729 views, respectively, those two videos are not setting the world on fire either, but clearly, trend wise, they were the start of a marked difference. Bottom line: My YT subscriber growth went exponential when I started posting V1E LR3 vids. I did not expect it, but I’m sorta glad for it.
First post on the forum - figured I’d chime in and say Doug’s videos have provided a nice avenue into the MPCNC and Lowrider. I was aware of the designs through the course of researching a DIY CNC, with an eye towards a plasma table, Doug’s videos lined up nicely (particularly the floating Z and THC integrations), which lead me to the forums which I’ve been reading voraciously - and then I picked up a 2nd hand, 95% complete Lowrider I’m now making my own.
So, thanks Doug! And thanks to the V1E team/designers, and knowledgeable forum members! I’m sure I’ll be asking a lot of questions, and will do my best to contribute back to the greater good once I start moving steppers and making chips/sparks.
Side note: Doug - your Patreon seems in an odd state, was hoping to back you for a bit, let me know when it’s back to accepting backers!
I’m wondering how hard it is to hit that. I posted a little BS short of the mill cutting the edge of a piece of steel and had 1300 views in 2 days. And I only have 200 subscribers to my channel. If I did a short a day, I’m thinking 10M views wouldn’t be too hard to hit.
As a user, I hate the shorts. None of the suggested ones are from the yters I watch. And if I spend a few minutes swiping through them, my watch history gets destroyed.
That is to say, you are very much at the mercy of the algorithm. If YT suggests them to people, then they will get a bazillion views. I don’t think subs have much to do with the number of views. But if you posted a short a day that each did a decent job of getting clicked and people watched them to the end, then yeah, you would probably explode. 10M in 90d is a lot though.
Thanks, however, I’ve made an administrative decision to delete my Patreon account. Perhaps instead you could “buy me a cookie” by sending me something via either my ko-fi.com account or my paypal account. Below is how I have the description on most of my videos (recently edited to remove references to Patreon):
If you want to support the channel, you can buy me a coffee:
I’m sitting at 228 subscribers, but I rarely post. Every time I think of creating a new video, I get out to the shop and neglect taking any footage. I keep telling myself ‘on the next project’ I’ll create a video… then I don’t.
Is this like some kind of hash tag or you just mention it in the name or caption lol.
I am not on the social media stuff. I always try and make sure to explain that it’s not my design and where to go but should I be tagging or something ?
I don’t even think I have a follower lol
I guess I have 14 haha
