I have only been on Vlare for a small part of one day, but I feel as if I'm being welcomed into a family. I feel like the Staff will accept and nurture me, and whatever content I make. I feel as though I have complete control over my work, as the site says that you are the owner of everything you produce. Importantly, I feel like I joined the site at the right time to be able to make a name for myself. I feel like this is a place that I, as an aspiring director and writer, can learn the ropes. Unlike You tube, I can see myself at the top in a few years, as everybody is on or around the same level. I feel as though the community is nice and willing to help. You can make friends here and have a good time. I think that I won't be looked down upon for wanting to make obscure comedy videos. On You tube, I constantly felt like I was in danger of being banned because of what I want to do, but here I don't feel like that. I can upload with peace of mind. This feeling is actually helping me to get out of the rough patch I've been in, and I'm feeling very eager to record.
I'm also happy that, if I become a Partner, the site will let me keep every penny I earn. It makes me feel like the site is run by people who, like me, were sick of YT and wanted to have an alternative site. A site where video sharing and community is brought back to its roots. Thank you, Vlare. I look forward to seeing where we can go.
Hey Creators and Viewers,
As we've been working hard on making Iox better for the viewer and creators, we believe that we should disclose some of the issues we never properly covered, and the ways we'll try to patch them up and fix them. We've received a lot of good reception towards the project and we thank you for supporting us. But for the people who don't understand what Iox is, this post is (sort of) for you.
What is Iox?
Iox is a channel which lets creators build their audience up from new viewers who follow and watch the Iox channel for new content and creators to discover. We're also a group of people committed to getting the word out about your content and giving you advice on how you could improve on your content. Think of it more so like Machinima, but instead of us trying to screw you over, we're trying to support you and listen to feedback on how we could improve on our network. Comparing ourselves to them may seem bad, but you get the idea.
Is there any incentive to join the network?
There are multiple. For one, you get your content featured on our channel and links to your content will be in the description. Two, if you are a small creator and you need help trying to grow, Iox is perfect for your needs since you can showcase your work to new people who'd be interested in your type of content and what you do. And thirdly, if you are in the Iox Discord, you're able to talk to us at any time regarding your content and what you could do to improve. It also makes it easier for us to DM you and decide on deadlines for your content.
Do you guys have any targets or any demographics?
Currently, we want to try and put out as much content as well as contact different creators about their contributions to the network and what we could do in the long run. By the time we've gotten original series and new content, we'll fully decide on who we should be targeting, as well as our niche, based on both the audience feedback and the content that we put out. We want to try and do diverse things, be a lot more experimental and see what sticks out from our channel alone. We hope you understand this and hopefully follow us wherever we go.
Do you have any content creators currently apart of the project and what would I need to do to join?
As a matter of fact, yes. We've been contacting creators about their ideas for Iox content, and we've been discussing how long it may be for them to produce the content. We don't want to have this "lax" attitude where nothing gets fully done with content and we'd rather have it so content is released whenever it's fully complete. So basically, we'll try to make our deadlines to fit our patience and your patience. Simply DM us with your idea, and then we'll discuss ideas on when you'll be able to produce, edit and upload the content for the channel.
How do I submit my content?
You can tell us beforehand what you want your content to be before you produce it via our DMs or on chat in the Iox Discord. You'll also need to send us the file that contains your video, and you may have to contain the details regarding your content. (descriptions, tags, etc.) We usually only use Discord to send the content, but if you would want to share it via our DMs here, you're free to do so, just know that it may take us more time to see your message.
We recommend you upload it using a file sharing site, as uploading it here will make it impossible for us to upload your content.
What will happen to Iox, if say, Vlare was shut down?
We would try to move ourselves to a new platform which'll be able to sustain ourselves for the coming months before a newer alternative comes out. And to be fair, Vlare is probably not going to shut down any time soon since there is money going into this and management has been keeping up with demands.
Is there other management, besides Allan running the project?
There is a team who are working alongside myself, or my "second hand" team who make sure to find other content creators who are easily contactable and are willing to join the network. We do want to try and create our own content, but before we can do that we need to make sure that the channel has enough viewers to really demand our own content, so we'll see in the future if it's possible.
Thanks for reading this lengthy blog post that I wanted to write to disclose the certain questions you may have surrounding the project itself. I hope that you understand more properly what we want our network to be and to hopefully see you join us in the foreseeable future.
Hi, I'm Lucas and I'm posting videos on this site Vlare. I liked to post videos here and keep posting, but I see that the site could have more engagement by the users mainly in the groups and in the comments, in the posts of here as in the videos. This depends primarily on users who can become more active and participatory, so I asked the question in the title of this post, have you explored Vlare today? And if so, to something that bothers them and pleases them?
Alguien que hable español acá?
La verdad es que me da curiosidad, siendo que la mayoría de aquí son de habla inglesa
Hello mah bois,
say anything revelant, controversal or any interesting topic, and i will make a video about it
and btw, i will upload a new video tomorrow on my gaming channel
People people hello There, i've been more happy that you lot given me so much support on this platform last week which i'm loving the format and the layout looks fantastic also, i've been facing a couple of trolls who were my enemies in the past on this website but i still got a smile and stayed strong,
just to clear things up that personally i do not give a Rats ass if the majority of you dislike me as person and the way i produce my own content on my channel and avoiding me, cause i'll keep on striving, i'm here to produce videos for myself as i enjoy doing them, that's how focused i really am everyday, No doubt about it.
So thank you to all My old friends on this platform who been very well respected and keeping me in touch Vlare , those type of people i have more respect for them. Peace 😁
Welcome to the brand new channel, Iox.
If you don't know what Iox is, basically it's a channel that allows creativity and a voice to creators seeking an outlet to express their thoughts and share their new work with new audiences. The catch, is that there's no catch, you can create whatever you want (as long as it follows the guidelines) and share it to Iox in the hopes of being featured on the channel.
If you didn't understand that, create show, share to Iox, Iox upload, popularity. Simple concept. We've already got certain creators on board with the idea, and we're still looking for creators. If you are willing to join us, join the group here so that you can help us and yourself get heard.
iron man dies
Okay, idk if this section is meant for a specific type of review, but I just need to say...
Fire Emblem Fates is a disappointment compared to the other Fire Emblem games - specifically compared to Awakening, which was pretty dang good considering that the series was practically dead before it released.
Maybe that's why fates feels like a rush job; it's like Nintendo was scared that the surge Awakening created would die off before they could milk as much money as possible from it. Speaking of money, I would assume that the reason Fates was split off into three different games like a gosh dang Pokemon title was to trick people into buying extra copies just so they could experience different endings. At least Pokemon games don't change the whole gosh dang plot withing the same generation (excluding Gen 5, I guess)
Let's talk about the plot. I don't have a lot of qualms about it as a whole, but what the eff was the point of having Corrin (or Kamui if you're a weeb) turn into a dragon? I'll admit, I really like the idea but they do nothing with it beside what happens in the beginning, and maybe using it to insinuate that she isn't exactly from the same region as her "siblings." I don't want to give spoilers to Revelations, which in my opinion is the superior version and would be even better if they had just combined the three games in the first place.
There's not much difference between the three games except for the follow:
-Only Conquest plays more like the classic games, but doesn't really have as many maps. Admittedly, it's been a while since I played the older ones, but they felt waaaaay longer and allowed for more opportunities to get support dialogue.
-Different people die. I can only think of one person where the death is preventable, but there are two others that seemed like they were just thrown in for the sake of adding drama. I barely know these people, why should I care? (Fates isn't the only piece of media to have this problem, I'll give them that).
-The endings, as mentioned previously. What kinda bothers me is that, depending on the ending, it essentially changes a bit of the lore. That wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for the paywall to obtain that information.
-Revelation had a limited amount of cartridges made, thus forcing most people to buy it digitally.
Now that that's outta the way, let's talk about supports - which is another thing that varies in the games; depending on which game you get, the group of people you get to use/interact with changes. This brings back the part on how Revelation is superior since you eventually get to recruit everyone (minus two people that die).
But anyway, you can marry your "siblings" which is in quotes since supposedly Corrin is not related to them, which is more clear in Revelation but not really so much in the other two. Supposedly there's some kinda reasoning in Birthright which I think you can only get by S ranking Ryoma, but it's still weird. Marrying Conquest siblings, however, is still weird because they hammer in the point that they are siblings multiple times. Maybe I'm the only one that doesn't like that, idk. Oh yeah, and they both try to fight/kill you if you choose an opposing side, so much for "familial love."
Also you can make cousins marry. That isn't really the fault of the game, I just wasn't paying attention when I paired Kana with Selkie while her mom was Sakura. Whoops.
What's with the child system anyway? In Awakening it made a little more sense since it can be thought of as the kids being born in the future, but in Fates they just eff off into the Nth dimension, screw, and leave there kids behind. They could've waited or something. Or just not include the child system all together. Or they could've done some kinda Rune Factory 2 thing, but whatever I guess.
I'm still bothered that they didn't do anything with that dragon thing, like no one mentions it ever again.
Some other minor grips is that when seeing a support conversation, the background is practically nothingness; Awakening at least made it look like some war room or something. They also don't have like any voice clips when they talk, why'd they get rid of that?
Also, why are only two characters bi? I know that Japan doesn't like that kinda thing, but why those two characters?Rhajat makes sense due to Tharja's popularity, but why Niles? He kinda annoys me personally, which is why I'm bothered that there aren't more choices and I thus have to play as both genders if I wanna get with different people. This is kinda a problem I have with most games that have some kind of marriage system *cough* runefactory *cough*
I guess that's enough complaining for now. I don't hate the game btw, I've enjoyed it quite a few times and that's why I feel so strongly. I keep seeing a game that isn't there, a different reality where the game was even better than Awakening, but here I'm left wanting something more.
Thanks for reading this rant even though Fates was released 46387587 years ago.
My name is Joshua Moran or as I go by online, Watersurf. I've been creating videos since May 2008. I started out on YouTube that same month creating slideshow videos and stick figure animations. Eventually I moved onto making roblox and gmod content later that year. As time went on, I started doing live action videos as well for my school films and projects. Overall, I create videos with many different "mediums". I'm more or less a variety channel, always creating new content, always having something new and exciting in each video or series I create. Now, that brings me to this website.
Vlare seems like a great new website that is very user friendly and feels like early youtube. Though, I don't want to be this guy but I'm mainly here just to create videos. I'm not here to get mixed up in the community's affairs and drama crap, but just here to upload my cool videos. I create videos to entertain others. So don't expect any silly "drama" videos from me on this site (or any of the other sites I upload to for that matter). Basically, for the time being as this site is brand new, I will be uploading my videos I created over the years, with the occasional new ones coming out the same time they do on youtube (and vimeo). I may create exclusive content for this site in the future, but as of right now, it will just be the videos I created over the years. I will have a playlist out eventually that has all of my vlare exclusive videos in it.
Anyway, to wrap things up or whatever. I'm here to make videos for entertainment purposes, not intended to stir any trouble up. As for vlare exclusives, those may or may not come later down the line. I hope you all enjoy my content I upload to this site and if you are looking for more, you are welcome to check out my YouTube in the meantime as I slowly upload my videos, especially my longer ones vlare does not allow anything over 30 minutes (45 for premium) as of right now and I don't want to split up videos into parts.
