My opinion FWIW.....
You want a label? A label is not needed, but if you want be considered a serious researcher
Do not scour YouTube looking for videos. Want to do real research, do as Gortex suggested and look at our long term members (kandinsky , Karl12 and
who do not post crap and actually put thought, passion and real research into the things they post. They do not ever scour YT and post
any and everything that says "ufo". They also know who the hoaxers are and know the tall tail signs of hoaxers. THOSE are the ATSers to look up to
here.....those are the real researches (amongst many others, apologies to those who were not named)....
On top of that
, learn about EVERYTHING in the skies above. Learn about the satellites, how they move, when they move, how many are up there,
etc. Learn about stars and planets and their alignments. Know the sites to check, double check and triple check against (sat & planetary sites).
Study planes, helicopters, blimps and anything man-made
in the skies. Learn how they fly, what lights are on each aircraft and when those
lights are used. Learn CGI software. Learn how these hoaxers are making things. Make things yourself to see how easy it is.
Most anything on YT has been posted here over and over. Most things on YT is crap. IMO, of course.
If it has adverts, music, "production" logos, history of posting the same "thing" in video after video, texts overs or one single ounce of
editing..........IMO, don't post it, skip it. If it is not a raw unedited footage, the chance of it being anything other than crap is high.
And last but not least, please do not try and be some internet YouTube star/celebrity
by trying to draw people to your channel by posting
anything and everything.
So, once all of that is done and complete and you can bring some serious stuff and not the 99% of YT crap found and posted, that would be awesome and
you may call yourself a "researcher".....
Again, just my opinion.....I actually think this subject has become a joke because of all the wannabe UFO superstars out there....
