Finally, a serious blog post. Anyway, I'll get right into the details.

    First of all, I spend almost all of my free time working on Vlare in hopes that it will grow into what I want it to be. Personally, working on 1.0 is hard. I joined Vlare very late in development, and I don't understand a lot of the design choices, so instead of modifying existing code, I add my own features into the mix. So as a result of this, I primarily add features, or report bugs to the team. However, Vlare 2.0 is the realization of my dream for this site, it'll flip the scrip of 1.0, and hopefully give the site some much needed improvements.

    However, that's not why I'm here today. I'm here to express my own personal beliefs and feelings. You see, many users don't think of me as a person, they think of me more like a cold development machine. Considering that this site is a passion project, I do go out of my way to help people and fix things even if I only half understand the issues myself, and I do genuinely care about everyone. I do my best to ensure the site is working as best it can. However, being treated like I don't exist, and being expected to be this "perfect" being is really affecting my mental health. A lot of people didn't like YouTube's bots, and said they'd rather have humans in charge. Well, they got their wish, and they're trying to turn me into a bot.

    As I've said, I do genuinely try to help everyone, but not getting a break in over a week and people getting upset at me for doing something I volunteer to do isn't how I roll. So, I've decided that it's best for me to take a week off, I'll still check in and help, but I won't be dedicating my every free minute to this site. That's all really, thanks for reading.

Hey man, you do the very best you can. You can’t fix problems on your own with This many people on the website. You are only human, focus on the best in you and balance your time away from us. We’ll be fine here. We thank you for allowing us to find a place we call home. :)

Hey, don't ever over work yourself because of the demands of others.
Rest, you deserve it.

Mel, an important part of any project is proper rest.
Take some time, and shrug off the haters. Get your head right, recharge, and when you come back, make sure to schedule breaks while working.
Hope you feel better soon.
