So after being asked repeatedly by some of the users of Vlare, and reconsidering my own choices, I've decided to join back as a developer. Not much more to say. Well, I do have one thing.. Updates may seem slow, but I can say that some big things are in the works. If you have any small updates you'd like to see, let me know.

I've maintained Vlare for just over 8 months now, and I've truly given it all I have to give to help culture our community. However, due to questioning my own sanity for the last month, struggling with multiple health issues, and multiple controversies, most notably one that occurred today with close friends of mine, it is time that I resign. I care very greatly about our community, and though we've had both good and bad times together, I love this site & community. In the future should I have a change of heart and wish to return, I hope you'd all welcome me back with open arms rather than turn a blind eye to me. I intend to continue posting to the site, and keeping close with all of the amazing friends I've made here. Thank you all for helping to make this site what it is, and for being amazing. <3

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.

Melony I have a serious question, what kind of music are you allowed to put on a video without breaking any copyright rules.

As long as you adhere to fair use laws and don't just steal the song you should be good to go.

I have a question, in which is also explained in this video:
https://vlare.tv/v/9VvSW58y

WHY DON'T MAKE A PATREON???
(because even with Vlare Premium, people still want to donate more, like said in the video above.)

I think what we could do is expand Premium instead, which we intend to do after we finish implementing a pretty large feature we're working on right now.

@cornmeal And the reason why i dont have discord anymore because i did literally awful thing with my phones on snapchat and dad took away all of my social media and when i was on discord i felt literally unhealthy, and fet like i was forced to be in these servers so my parents decided to delete my account permanently
