  • [ – ] DwarvenGamesmith reply I understand where you're coming from. Honestly though I just skip over these videos and don't give them the attention that they are begging for. Why shed extra light on them when I could be pouring in more work to make my self brighter.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply You're right actually. I only looked at one side of this, hoping to bring attention to it so people would just know what was going on and maybe somehow get it stopped. "I" never stopped to think, because I was so angry about it, that it could potentially go the wrong way. Thanks for opening my eyes man, seriously. I'll try to better thing things through in the future.
  • [ – ] November_Fox reply I agree that the guy you mentioned is a bit foolish. Clearly there are more people coming to Vidme than leaving. I may have mentioned earlier that I have two complaints with Vidme, but the pros still far out weigh the cons. It would take a lot for me to want to leave Vidme. Vidme isn't perfect, but no site is.
    • [ – ] MrJoelDee parent reply That's very true. And I brought up my main one gripe about the trending page to really call attention to small creators that put out really good stuff and should be featured at least once in awhile. I dunno how the algorithms work, but if it's all computer, it's probably going by numbers. I've heard it's based on views and up votes, etc, within a certain time of the video going up. I don't buy that entirely because a video I made about YouTube had 30 views within 20 minutes and I dunno how many up votes, and it never made the trending page, which is fine with me. Again, I don't want the limelight but I'm sure some channels I follow would like a little exposure every so often. The guy complaining about Vidme, I just got tired of some lies being told about the site, and just don't complain over and over. Shit or get off the pot, ya know? Lol! Either deal with the situation as best you can if Vidme isn't doing anything about it, and don't draw attention to it every few weeks.....or go som...moreewhere else. It just gets old after awhile. I think this is the only "complaint" video I've made, about Vidme anyway, and I plan on it being my last unless something major happens down the line. I love the community too. I don't wanna be anywhere else. I'm not firing back at you, understand, I know you weren't being critical in any way, I just gradually got more and more annoyed, mainly with the guy spreading lies about Vidme, and felt I had to say something to address it. If you have time sometime, check out the YT video I linked. Again every story has 2 sides, but I tend to believe this has been a pattern for him, given the examples they show in his own words. I know it's long, but it opened my eyes. He had me fooled with a video he posted here about how cruel YT was to him and all this, and no doubt they ARE assholes, but after he knocked video and made false claims, I decided to dig and see if I could find his channel on YT, number 1, and a search of his name on there produced the video I linked.
      • [ – ] November_Fox parent reply If you're referring to my most recent post, I know you're not firing back at me, because you know as well as I do I don't do that kind of thing very often. I know I said I secretly hope my last video gets to trending in hopes of dealing with a legitimate issue, but other than that one, I'm just like you. I'm not here to be popular. In fact I don't want to be popular, because looking at the number of comments people like Daniel Amann gets on his videos I simply couldn't keep up. I like responding to everyone's comments, but geez I don't know how he does it!
        • MrJoelDee parent reply Lol, yeah I heard that. I don't want the popularity either. I'm happy just doing what I do and I like being able to respond to each person as well. I dunno what I was saying about firing back. I think I was so upset at the lies that guy was telling yesterday, I got confused in my response. Sorry bout that.
  • [ – ] Roolooth reply I agree with all your points made here. Vidme isn't perfect but what platform is because if there was one we wouldn't have moved to Vidme right? I'm quite happy with it, it's another option and platform for creators. I make my videos for the subjects I'm interested in and I'm never going to be a big hit but I'm not here to be in a big race to the top, besides some of the ones getting all the high figures don't appeal to me especially if the creators can only churn out videos almost exclusively about Vidme. I just enjoy making my videos and sharing, if a few people enjoy them thats good, it's about creating. I only have one gripe about vidme and that is the search facility, but who knows maybe this will be improved at a later date.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply I agree completely. I have no desire to be "top of the pops" either. I just love creating and sharing and am so thankful for the people, like yourself, that like to watch my content. It was just something I noticed and know that some small creators would like a little more exposure once in awhile, so I addressed it mainly for them. My main issue was the person spreading false info about the platform. In keeping their comments off due to the alleged hate comments, they also shut out any way to refute their false claims other than making a video about it. I made the video because I'd hate to see someone new come here, maybe see his video as one of the first ones they watch, and not being able to see any comments calling him out for false statements, get a misperception of the site and leave.
  • [ – ] TanyaMills reply This was a great video. As for the first part: I was on the Trending page once for a few days with a particular video, and I have never gotten so much hate in my life. So I am also okay with not being on the Trending page for that reason. Also for the second part, I think this creator you speak of might be one of those people in life who enjoys complaining. People like this have no desire to find a solution to their problem or even a better option - they like the attention complaining affords them.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply I totally agree Tanya. Being in radio for many years, I've had people call up before and complain or make a comment because they don't like a song you're playing. It's luke some people just aren't happy unless they are complaing about something. As for that guy, I noticed a couple other thibgs in his video from today that I forgot to point out. 1. He says there's no money to be made here, yet he has a $2 subscribe button on his channel. Hypocrital in my opinion but I can let that slide I suppose. But then he talks about haters and such, yet he's doing the same thing, in a way at leadt, by talking about all the featured content being "childish". I shouldn't pay so much attention to people, I know lol, but I can't help myself sometimes. Especially when someone is telling things about a community I love, that I know for a fact aren't true, and putting it and its creators down.
  • [ – ] Y2JayDoesAsia reply I know what you mean about seeing the same people trending day after day after day. The problem with this is it creates "kingpins" though the course of continual promotion and growth. Promotion perpetuates growth and the growth perpetuates promotion. Honestly I don't think there should be a "trending" section because all it does is blow people's channels up bigger than they should be, Your success should be based on how good your body of work is, not how good your work is + ALL THE BOOSTS YOU GOT. I say remove the trending page all together.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply You make a very good point my friend and reiterate one point in the video. I would not have a problem at all with there being no trending page.
  • WarpSpeedStarship2 reply That's OK, I think I'm still gonna a big critic of VIDME...
