Impressive. I’m going to go to the home page and save it as a favorite.

This appears to just be the WBGH television station and Woodcraft Corp. hyping themselves via their ‘Roughcut’ series.

Remember, the only way Tommy McDonald gets paid is through people buying his products such as Tommy’s DVDs and WW Plans. PBS does NOT pay royalties related to on-air time.


Understanding this, I strongly urge WBGH and Woodcraft to use the formal LJs approved advertising platform.
As it stands currently I would consider this SPAM. If I am wrong then LJs Admin will step in and correct me.

Hi Mike,

In full disclosure, I work on the show for WGBH and thought that Lumberjocks would be a great community to share some of our episodes and how-to videos. I am by no means selling anything other than encouragement to tune-into the series. These how-to videos have already been created and are available for free on our website.

Regards,
Mike

Mike,

As long as Mike contributes to the community in a free format, such as what Stumpy does, I don’t see that it’s a problem. His forum comment is considerably smaller, but no different than Stumpy’s. A LOT of guys link to their sites where they offer services for money. Marc Spagnola leaps to mind. But they all have free content as well. Look at all the folks with video blogs. Many have websites they sell services and supplies.

I think we shouldn’t jump to any conclusions until we see how Mike & his show operate on the site. Just because has a national TV show, and people actually know who he is, doesn’t mean he can’t be a member of the site.

Would you react the same if Norm showed up and became a member? ;)

Just my two cents.

Milo

I guess what caught my eye was that you appear to be using the corporate identity. Your avatar is Tommy M, your website is Tommy M, your LJs Profile is corporate Tommy M, and your LJs nickname includes Tommy’s show name “WGBHRoughCut”. This looks completely corporate in every sense of the word/presentation.

If you were “Mike Woodworker” (or some such), had your OWN history, your own ‘personal’ Profile, and were promoting the show, THEN that is what LJs is all about. Doing it the way you are appears to be shortchanging LumberJocks of advertising revenue. Just saying…

HorizontalMike,

Yup, it will be a delicate balance. Mike will need to be more himself, and less the show, to be accepted here, I believe. I’m hoping the former.

Have a great one!

Hi Mike,

Just looking to provide more access to Tommy and his skills to the people that would appreciate it the most. I don’t have a personal profile on the site because the only woodworking things I know I only learned from working on the show with Tommy. Now if this was a craft beer site, that would be a different story…

I think that Tommy is a tremendous resource and would like to do more with this group as you are ones who could use it the most. For example, I’d like to do a Q&A, etc. I’m not asking for anything, just saying “Hey, here’s a show that you might like.”

Regards,
Mike

WGBH, thanks for the tips.

Don’t let Hmike get to you.

I think a lot of LJers will appreciate your contributions to woodworking.

We all want and like for the show to be a success. We also want LumberJocks to continue being a success as well, and that takes advertising revenue at the corporate level. Some of us remember the days when individual members were the contributors trying to keep LJs afloat, before Martin partnered with Escalate Media. Now, LJs is corporately sponsored and THAT is why you see the advertisements on these pages.

I still want WGBH to consider supporting LumberJocks via approved advertising and not via the back door. WGBH is a large enough organization to do this, I am sure. I want LumerJocks to continue to be financially sound, well into the future. Thanks in advance.

I don’t see the difference between WGBHRoughcut posting a link to videos and any of the other members that have links to their web sites. I think anything that promotes woodworking and further educates woodworkers of all levels is a plus and in no way takes away from the fundamental purpose of this site which is to share experience and knowledge with fellow woodworkers!

It’s better than the Non Shop Talk forum that seems to have a fair amount of mindless crap under the guise of stimulating conversation that does nothing more than stir up ill will. So if those topics are allowed then why shouldn’t WGBRoughcut be allowed to remain?

I’m not a big fan of the show but many are so I say If WGBHRoughcut wants to provide a link to free videos and share the knowledge then post away and I say WELCOME to LJ’s!

The website where the videos are located has some pretty informative content and just the videos. Nicely done!

Tommy Mac was already a member here long before he got the tv show.
Many thanks to PBS and WGBH and my local station WGBY for airing this show.
And dare I say Woodcraft ’s sponsorship , or will they have to pay a penalty fee for free advertising ?

I know that but why would someone impersonate him? Or lead others to believe that it could be Tommy?
