It's time for a revolution.
We will take this platform. This is our time. This is our place.
The war begins now.
I might delete this later, but I want to explain in brief the reason for my inactivity. I have to bite my tongue, but what I can say is it’s been tough. Everything has been a blur since the 10th, and my only hope is that things are back to normal soon. Things are out of my hands, and I sincerely thank Sudeurion and a few other people for their concern. All I ask is that you all have my back, if things are normal soon than I’ll have all of yours too, and I’ll make a video explaining things further.
Please do me a favor and sign up for Vlare Premium. Normally I wouldn't shill so hard for paid services, but this one in particular is so important.
I've been wanting a solid YouTube alternative to become prominent for pretty much the entirety of this decade, so much so that I flattered the idea of creating my own a few months before joining the original iteration of ZippCast. So far, Vlare is proving to be that robust alternative I dreamed of, but I cannot be certain it will survive the end of next year based on the punishing cycle of pretty much every site that has attempted to directly take on YouTube.
One major killer of YouTube alternatives is that nobody ever takes them seriously, only opting to maybe throw a few things in them and forget it even existed in a week. Remember Vidme? I was convinced it would be the one site that could actually succeed, as it brought in many big names like ReviewTechUSA, I Hate Everything, and even LGR... but they were never really active on there, so there was largely nothing to watch on there, and a ton of people who were brought in ended up never watching anything on that site. Admittedly, I was never big on Vidme, either, since it seemed more purely focused on flashy commercial creators, while VidLii was a lot more fun to be on.
Vlare's spike in growth following YouTube's latest trendy controversies is a critical opportunity for a superb YouTube alternative to be firmly implanted in popular online grounds for those who are fed up with everything YouTube has done since Google's acquisition of that site. Reuploading your own videos to Vlare is good, as it will give everyone over here more things to watch. What scares me about Vlare's growth, though, is that it could turn into a dead fad after January, where people develop an attitude like "oh okay I didn't get fined guess I don't need Vlare lol". I mean, even with the clarifications the FTC provided recently along with some revelations regarding YouTube's handling of the new COPPA rules, I still hold a strong skepticism over whether I or other creators will be safe, as creators are still going to be held liable by them if they do something incorrect.
The migration to Vlare shouldn't be specifically about COPPA (or worse, treating Vlare solely as something lesser like a backup utility), it should be about everything Google did to us and an undying ambition to get this site running on titanium legs. YouTube's tyranny has been going on for too long, and in order to at least fracture it, we all need to make a collective effort to help this site thrive.
Yes, bring more of your videos and your audience here, but don't stop there. Give this site your $6 and ask others to do the same so it can survive on the limited resources it has, as ads are not a reliable source of income. At least try to become involved in this website; I know it might be difficult if you're interested in some field that has a shortage (particularly retro computers for me), but even 20-30 minutes of watching Vlare uploads and writing at least one comment every day or whatever your time affords will help immensely in making Vlare become a place where people can actually seek engagement following the deafening silence they've had to endure with their videos on YouTube.
Do not butcher this opportunity, or Vlare will become another iteration of the same cycle, further impeding the credibility of YouTube alternatives and forcing creators to tolerate more and worse garbage YouTube imposes on them. I'm counting on you.
This topic is probably gonna come up multiple times so I might as well write it out in a blog post rather than having to keep repeating myself.
Cringe culture is far more annoying than any of the communities being mocked.
The whole thing is just repackaged bullying that should have been left behind in middle school.
All it's doing is spreading more negativity in an already-negative world.
The people who make "bad" or "weird" art/animation/fanfiction are putting their heart and soul into creating something they care deeply about. Even if I don't personally care about it, it's still really cool to see that passion shine through.
On the other hand, channeling that passion towards tearing down a completely harmless thing you don't like is kind of sad.
We have limited time on this world. Use it wisely.
I know this isn't going to change any minds. I'm not even entirely sure why I'm posting it. Just putting in my two cents I guess, for whatever that's worth.
My most unpopular video to date was a video I used to test Vlare's video converter to make sure it was working. Coming in at a grand total of -3 likes, I'm sorry I let you all down. I've learned my lesson, and I will make sure not to test the site and fix issues in the future. Thank you for your support, and again, sorry for letting you down.
(DISCLAIMER: it's a joke)
Hey, guys, I was wondering how you felt about the coppa situation?
personally I get that they're trying to protect kids' privacy, but their actions seem a bit extreme.
Also: there's a protest thing going on I heard about where people will refuse to upload
My name is 'Ariadna' or you can call me 'Arisha'. I want to tell you about that I have a channel Youtube and the real reason why I moved here.
I know that I've got a channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0rhQSkjXUJQyEC3NYZwMPQ/about
But before I log on in this website, in this month I was on Youtube and I saw a new crazy rule. I read it and I was shocked! Youtubers weren't happy too because they think that Youtube is greedy and it's true!
But today when I saw a new video from 『Strawberry Leaf』, it's called Vlare. I tried to log in to test it out, put some old videos and I liked my videos. I also followed some channels. I feel better right now and I hope that Vlares(I guess they call like that), but I hope you'll like my videos and blogs. ^^
See you soon,
The FitnessGram Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal bodeboop. A sing lap should be completed every time you hear this sound. ding Remember to run in a straight line and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark. Get ready!… Start.
