Jesus Christ it has almost been half a year already since Vlare openned its "gates" to the public and I have been here since day 1 so it seems like It has been so long since it openned, but it has felt more like 2 months, not 4.
Overall, I'm really enjoying the site and to you mods and devs! Keep doing what you're doing!
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.
I have recently got my results for my GCSE results and I got grade 4's (Grade C) in both English language and Maths. Since I hit them, I don't really need to do any English and Maths GCSE's in my life which is good. I got Grade 3's (Grade D) in my Science, AQA Music and English Literature. The only ones I have done completely bad is History with a Grade 2 (Grade E) and I got P2 (basically Pass because BTEC hooray lets be different) on my BTEC ICT. All that and now I can hit the bus and go to Nando's becuase free chicken init.
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.
