OK it's time to bribe. How about a $5 Best Buy gift card for the first five people who send me their show thread...

$100, for the time and effort considering the minimal additional benefit compared to the existing exposure on AVS.

That's a pretty rude comment. The guy's just putting his site out there.

Not rude, just reality of the situation. There are plenty of places to post pictures of your HT, what is so unique about this new one?

What's unique is that it's this guy's attempt at designing a website and maintaining it. No need to leave a negative comment for the guy. If you don't think it's unique, then don't visit or comment on it.

Not trying to sound like a jerk, but it came off as an unnecessary thing to say.

If the name of his site was viagraforsale would you change your mind? Seems a lot like spam to me. Just joined the forum and now posting his site for people to share pics. Hmmmmm!

Mike

Where am I with my HT build?

Still Dreaming! But I built a shed!

Thanks for everyone's interest.

I recently finished my home theater and had time on my hands so I thought I would try web design. I didn't want to put just pictures of my theater on it so I thought I would invite others.

This forum is great and this is where i got a lot of my info when building my theater so i thought I would post my theater pics and my website here.

Big Mouth is right - there are a lot of sites with pics of home theaters. This forum has millions - I just wanted my site to spotlight some DIY ones. Also I am not spam nor do I like to eat it....

-Joe

Joe,

Do you have a link to your website that can be shared, or is it still under construction?

You might get more participation if others here had a better feel for your goal...

Sure it is at the beginning of the tread also...


www.averagejoehometheater.com

It is up and running and I believe most of the traffic to the site is coming from this forum and my threads:

show thread

DIY Screen thread


Thanks.

So, let me get this straight, you come to AVS and try to encourage AVS'ers to click your link to post their thread that they already posted on AVS. Having your link associated with AVS should boost your link's exposure on the net. I doubt this thread will last the week before it's removed.

Good luck.

averagejoe,

Just checked your website, nice and clean. Your HT area and concession area is quite nice. Good work for sure.

As for posting DIY items to your thread - seems this could dilute and compete with the excellent threads and resources here on AVS. Sorry but I don't see any advantages for the HT community if I were to "double post" ?

Thanks. I have not done a good job explaining - i just wanted to take some cool pictures from threads and add them to my website and that is why i was asking. I did not want anyone to double post - i was going to do all the work (i did a couple already on my site). This forum is great i did not want to compete with it - i do not think it is even possible - i just wanted to spotlight some other theaters besides my own in addition to this forum.
