Did anyone notice how the news completely shifted from talking about COVID-19.......to the riots, looters, etc. in various cities?

Really makes you think how the media works, doesn't it?

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.

It's time for a revolution.

A Vlare revolution.

For too long, animators have dominated the platform. The most followed Vlare channel? An animator from YouTube with two whole videos up. 34k YouTube subs, far less than some of the runner-up Vlare channels.

It is time for us gamers to rise up against our animation overlords.

We will take this platform. This is our time. This is our place.

The war begins now.

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

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.

No, as long as Vlare doesn't use cookies to get kid's information, and as long as creators like Jake Paul (who targets 9 year olds) don't get on this website and start collected kid's data. I just hope there are safeguards here for the whole COPPA thing.

So, yesterday, something happened to Vlare, I don't know what the cause was. Their Discord server basically has a paywall now, and their reason for this is that the server has made a bad influence on the community. As a result, people are flipping out, and some have even decided to leave Vlare as a result.


Now, why are so many people hinging on a Discord server, which is technically outside of the website, to be involved in Vlare's community? Discord is literally synonymous with drama, why else would it be called that? Whatever happened over there which I didn't pay attention to, it's a given that running a public Discord server will ruin everything. It happened with me, it happened with Druaga1, and it's going to happen with many more communities. Incentivizing memes and having tirades over things people on the outside don't even understand are just begging for trouble, and I'm glad Vlare's server is paywalled now. In theory, it should allow more resources to be devoted to growing the site itself.

The collective outrage over said paywall and the bailouts following it have me worried about the future of the website. It could either turn into another VidLii zombie or shut down completely, and if that happens... well, let's just say that there will be no videos coming from me AT ALL. I will not return to posting on YouTube, as that site has already hurt me enough. In the meantime, I will try to make whatever I can come up with for Vlare, and grapple onto the hope that this site will survive the debacle with all I've got. The future of content creation depends on it. Do you want a future where creators are actually treated with dignity, or do you want to fall back down to the hell that is YouTube, where you will continue to be betrayed in so many new ways beyond anything you could imagine?

Please don't blow this chance, for there might not be another if Vlare collapses.

Hello,everyone!

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,

Ariadna/Arisha

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.
