Internet Trolls & TROYPOINT Shortcodes

Internet TrollsAs many of you followers know, I provide dozens of tutorials where I instruct users to install an app by using a shortcode that I have set up on my server.

Lately, some Internet trolls have accused me of re-authoring the apps that my shortcuts point to.

First of all, I am not a developer and wouldn’t have the first clue of how to manipulate an APK file.  This is a long-time hobby of mine where I like to share what I have learned with others, which will ultimately save them money like it has for me.

How do these shortcodes work that I set up on my server?

Example:  In my popular Kodi on Firestick/Fire TV tutorial, I instruct cord-cutters to insert any of the following shortcodes to install the application through the Downloader app.

Stable Kodi Release –

Kodi 17.6 –

Kodi 18 Recent Release –

These shortcuts are “redirects” that I have configured on my server which point to the official app in question.

These are similar to other tutorials that you see where tutorial developers instruct people to insert a link.  An example of a shortcode is a common one for Kodi 17.6 which is

Why do I do this?

2 Reasons Why I Use Shortcodes

1 –  It is easier for people to type the shortcode rather than

2 – If a download link is ever changed, rather than re-creating the video or screnshot guide, I can easily update the redirect that I have set up on my server.  These URLs change frequently which would render my tutorials useless in a matter of weeks if not days.

I Have Never Created A Streaming Application/Addon & Haven’t Taken Credit For Such

Some of these Internet trolls are accusing me of taking credit for someone else’s application or addon.  Within my tutorials, I always state, “I have created a shortcut on my server which points to the installation file for this applications/addon”.

I challenge the trolls to find a tutorial or guide that I have developed where I say, “This is my application/addon”.

I am in this for the long-haul and appreciate all of my TROYPOINT Subscribers and visitors.

I would never jeopardize the large following that I have established by doing something so stupid that these trolls are accusing me of.
