His videos are now all in with the appropriate sections... his polishing videos are in the machine polishing area, washing in the wash area, etc.

 

We merged his section with the appropriate areas so they're all where they should be. Long story short we decided his role with us was sometimes confused as an employee of the company, though he was not. Because some of his methods or suggestions didn't align with our "official" policy we needed to clarify that relationship.

 

Unfortunately, when we made the change he chose not to come back. His membership is still active, and you can see he does check in from time to time based on his profile, but for whatever reason he has chosen to no longer participate.

 

We wish him the best, last I saw he was doing reviews on other brands and requiring people to subscribe to view his videos.

Was heartbreaking to see him peddling out someone else's product on youtube. :(

The politics of the matter aren't important.

 

This topic has been covered at least a half of a dozen times since Adam's and AJ have parted ways. You can find some information in This Thread.

 

All sorts of awesomeness happening around here, with the launch of DS 2.0 and whatnot. I don't see a reason to keep this thread open.

so y did he then,im more intrested in the politics of this now rarther than him being gone

 

No politics to it really.

 

As a non-employee of Adam's we couldn't expect him to tow the company line. He wasn't paid to do so and we wouldn't have asked him to. Unfortunately the fact was his videos were so widespread many people assumed he WAS an employee. As I answered in another thread we would get calls at the warehouse asking to speak to him... obviously living in KY and having his own computer repair business it was clear the line was blurred a bit for some customers and casual observers.

 

As we approached the announcement of our partnership with GM as the Official Car Care products of Corvette and Camaro it became important that company message be consistent. When asked about the proper care of a surface of either of those 2 cars our company was to be the authority on the matter... having any varying input undermined that. AJ had his own opinions on some things that were not in line with ours. Nothing wrong with that, but it was important to us (as it was important to GM) that we present a consistent message to the customers. Some of his videos were outdated... 2+ generations of polishing pads removed from our current line. Others featured products that were not ours - difficult to say thats OK when you're the Officially Licensed car care products of 2 prominent badges.

 

In order to clarify that AJ was not an employee, and his input was different than that of Adam's we simply moved his videos into the corresponding sections, like we would with any other customer who makes videos. Hard to say a guy isn't on the payroll when he has his own section on our forum. It wasn't personal, it wasn't political, it was simply a change that helped to identify his role... a prominent customer with excellent, albeit different, input.

 

He was never asked to leave, his account was never closed. Call it a blow to his ego or whatever you will, the fact is he is still very much welcome here. He chose to go a different direction and we wish him all the best... maybe some day he'll return and participate. If hes pleased reviewing and posting about other products elsewhere thats great... I'm sure those videos will help tons of people.
