  • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective reply Ok. Next platform to try out is Minds.com. Subscribe to my channel there here: https://www.minds.com/ThuleanPerspective
    • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply The video is on the trending page. Let's see how long it takes before they remove it. 20:38.
      • [ – ] OpulentMiracle parent reply They're probably going to leave THIS video alone, because you've called them out on their censorship. They're too embarrassed to move this one.
        • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply Yes. I think so too.
        • [ – ] HammerOfDoom parent reply Its not embarrassment, its a tactical move. Removing the video would prove Vargs claim outright, and thats not what they want. However as we see, if we have been watching, the contrast in trending time this video has, vs say, the red hair video. Red hair video lasted under 2 hours if I recall, with rapid and consistent upvotes/views outpacing all other vidme videos, without the category being changed, nor there being multiple varg videos on the trending page. This video is lasting 8+ hours. The circumstantial evidence is overwhelming.
          • HammerOfDoom parent reply 22+ hours now trending compared to some recent others that I saw never broke 6 (with the red haired one not breaking 2), even just gaming videos. I think its fairly clear now that prior videos were tampered with. Whether its because "the algorithm" or the "community team", it doesnt matter. That being said its sad, because I like the vidme platform from a functionality standpoint.
      • [ – ] hornsandhops parent reply I found it on the trending page, as such, you have a new follower.
    • Verfarkas parent reply We are a kind of "Internet seminomadic" tribe ha ha xD
    • [ – ] jbboehr parent reply At least one of us will be sad to see you go.
      • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply You should be sad, because guys like me is what gives you a job. When we leave, you have no job. And when you guys run VidMe like you do today, that is what is going to happen. I don't care where I publish my videos, if it's here or on YouTube or on Minds.com or whatever. And if one platform pisses me off, I move my business to another one. Easy. Only the platforms doing the right things will survive. And VidMe is NOT doing things right. Welcome to the globalized shithole of today.
        • jbboehr parent reply As someone sympathetic to your ideas, I was pleased to hear you had signed up, however most people here have more conventional politics.
        • [ – ] staticmesh parent reply No point in talking to the suits Varg, they'll just meander around your argument and never actually address anything. Like a politician, they're scared of losing their job by saying something that is out of line.
          • [ – ] jbboehr parent reply I can assure you none of us wear suits.
            • ThuleanPerspective parent reply That doesn't help though. Clothes don't make the man.
            • staticmesh parent reply It's still an applicable term, as "suit" implies a person of authority and you are one of the people of authority here. Note how this guy has yet to address any of these points, but will make an attempt at tongue-in-cheek humor. You're all the same.
          • prepTorrent parent reply "At least one of us will be sad to see you go." <- I might be incorrect, but I think this is a sarcastic remark which references that vidme sock puppet character they have (Hugh Manson). You can see it in this video talking about harvesting human organs. https://vid.me/QyCX From what I gather, it seems to be a parody on sock puppets (or accounts that can have some such shame applied to them) with the "I aim to harvest humans organs" style of 'robot talking' to be akin to the memes of American Psycho when quotes such as "I have to return some video tapes" are used. As I say, I may be incorrect but I think they use that sock puppet to upvotes comments and videos of people they wish to poke fun at as if associating that (usually non-Politcally Correct or Hate Speech inclined) person with the Hugh Manson psycho character. That would be a form of character assassination sarcasm. So I think the "one of us" person referenced is Hugh Manson. There are some good things about vidme, but I think ...morewhat vidme fail to realise is that there are anti-SJW people who genuinely want an impartial website (whether that be minds.com or vid.me or whatever). They do not want something biased for them in their favour (or against them). Having that sock puppet character may all be fun and games when they have the power of influence to shame people with it, but really I think it is not at all constructive. It also seems to take people for idiots. The 'joke' being on vidme of course when they are rumbled. Even if I am incorrect about the "one of us" reference in this comment, I still think I am right in thinking the usage of the "hugh manson" sock puppet sows distrust and is not constructive for a community of free speech. You just do not know wherethey are coming from. It is very low brow and churlish because freedom of speech is not about having the website host going around using their own agenda to mock and ridicule the userbase. There are a lot of things on the 'ThuleanPerspective' channel that I do not have the same views on, but I do not start "soft policing" him. If I am incorrect about this being an in joke reference to the hugh manson sock puppet then by all means I can stand corrected, if vidme say so by admitting that. 'Staticmesh' has a point in saying "Note how this guy has yet to address any of these points but will make an attempt at tongue-in-cheek humour". As I said a moment agoa, you just don't know where they are coming from. It smacks of cowardice to make a statement. I don't think the use of the Hugh Manson sock puppet to upvote people's comments is constructive. Normal user account people cannot downvote other people's comments and the Hugh Manson socket puppet "upvote" in all its sarcasm can actually count as a "downvote" in reality (because that is what sarcasm does). This is not about being a kill joy. This is about pointing out how when some people have "power" they cannot resist but abuse it. Really lame. It hands power by authority to those who would disagree with a point. If I get a Hugh Manson upvote on this, it really just strengthens my point and exposes vidme for behaving that way. I genuinely do not think it helps anybody and, in its bias, it is not healthy for a community. I have had an upvote on a joke comment I left in the past. No I wasn't "triggered" by it. I was just left thinking "Really? Well what does that mean? Is that sarcasm or genuine? I'd rather not have it at all thanks, either way." It doesn't add anything. It just takes away. We must remember that vidme have succumbed to the "hate speech" rule on their terms of service which can quite frankly mean anything. Maybe they have had to in order to exist, but using that sock puppet compunds the issue and I think they'd be wise to do away with it or at least make it clear what it is for. People, as account holders, genuinely want to work with vidme and not knowing where you stand just leaves you wondering if they are being dicks or not. I don't think them doing it (updownvoting) to a person I disagreed with wiould help either. People genuinely want impartiality and intervention can, ironically, make vidme look ike a gooseberry. Despite my long comment, what I am saying here is "sometimes less is more" because the interactions of the website owners has way more weight than that of a normal user account. If they kept it as the video character, like with the video on the "Ad me" parody, that would probably be for the best. It smacks of vidme thinking the are "above" other people, the lower orders, as if people with strongly non-Politically Correct and anti-SJW views are slack jawed people who are not smart and articulate. It says more about vidme than it does about those they might attempt to mock. There is something about working in an office that leads to playground politics. Vidme account holders can be left wondering if they are going to be the next fish in the barrel to have potshots taken at them by the website staff. Many people have left youtube because they do not like a tyrant (or anything even a bit like that) having an image of freedom to get you in and then only to start enforcing their fragile ego (such as an inability to take criticism) because, as a 'ruler', they have a rule of "It's my house" so "I can do what I want to you". One cannot help but looking at that behaviour and thinking "Meh. Really, Dude? Really?"
      • [ – ] kendrakane parent reply You a mod on here @jbboehr ?
      • [ – ] 0rb1t parent reply I couldn't find any announcements on what you were trying to do with the "Hot" tinkering that have obviously been going on. Any comment on that because it looks confusing at best or as Varg suggested purposefully manipulative..
        • [ – ] jbboehr parent reply The community team has been moderating the front page to allow for a variety of content. We plan to implement this at the software level soon.
          • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply "Variety" as in "NO politically incorrect opinions"?
            • [ – ] HammerOfDoom parent reply "Variety" as in "diversity" and "tolerance".
              • prepTorrent parent reply @HammerOfDoom Yeah there is a danger of it being used like that. This thing is really dumb (or at least will be poorly implemented) idea of vidme "The community team has been moderating the front page to allow for a variety of content. We plan to implement this at the software level soon." Many people have pointed out to vidme that subcategories are very important. An example of that is when people (like Styx666) say the search results should be in different tabs for channels and videos (and maybe even video category like politics or comedy). Another suggestion has been that, because people do bulk upload, when you click on the "following" button for uploads it would help if the results shown (when clicking 'following') are divided into rows for the channels you are following (maybe a very small thumbnail for each new video, and then that can be scrolled through if too many are there to fit on the screen at once). So with this latest idea to distribute the wealth of popularity with "so...moreftware level" enforcement of "trending" (or whatever they call it this month), there could be one extra row/column with untampered results for what it would look like without the algorithm. That way ThuleanPerspective and other channels would still get the unadulterated results. If vidme do not do something so simple like that, so as to give choice to the user, then people can be forgiven for wondering if there is some benefit vidme get in there only being tampered results. Surely this way, you get the "variety", i.e. a choice.
              • Singularitarian parent reply Ummm, soooo diversity in viewpoints and tolerance of some of the more unpopular opinions, such as Varg's?
            • Directionally_Challenged parent reply From what I've seen, It's just Variety as in, not the same people over and over and over.
            • LordFashHeart parent reply I'm gonna sort of play devil's advocate here, but VidMe is a young website with not so many channels as of yet, perhaps this isn't as sinister as it seems. They could actually be trying to diversify their content more on the trending page so their website is attractive to a large audience, the fact that one guy on the team is somewhat sympathetic to your views is a good sign, I'd perhaps give them a chance.
          • WhiteExperience parent reply You want this platform to be culturally enriched. I understand now :)
          • 0rb1t parent reply Implement exactly what on software level? What and how is it going to filter the hot page?
    • [ – ] Bronze_Hilt parent reply We're on a trip!
    • [ – ] northernblacksmith parent reply I think you are right. I thought Vidme is a good alternative to YouTube, but seems like we were wrong? Alas, there are other possibilities.
    • wrj1 parent reply Unfortunately there are too many people in this world who are afraid to really allow freedom of thought and speech. Censorship is the proof of these scared people. Too bad. I guess they don't really want to be a successful business. Goodbye Vidme.
    • BalrogsAndBagginses parent reply Time to move the pack onto fresh pastures, then.
    • bohemefit parent reply minds is full of jew shills (the creator is also a jew) ive been at minds 3 times then have just had to leave each time... gab the same.. frustrating as a content creator.. re content here i just look at 'following' under explore. I IGNORE their trending pages, for their mostly mindless, gaming & or ugly pc stained. keep both tube & this page up please! you can share loaded tube videos here too (i have to do this for they wont allow me to load most my videos - they obviously hate heathens paganns & witches lol) )O( blessed be
    • wolfn9z parent reply they put your video on vidmes trending
    • luishadmag parent reply A true Nomad!
    • [ – ] Sylwoos parent reply Minds don't host video, don't they? It's a good alternative to Facebook and twitter, but not really a alternative to YouTube.
      • getchar parent reply Keeping following Varg , let's together find out a alternative solution. Stop using Vidme.
  • [ – ] Aiya reply i understand how you feel sir. Actually some months ago there was a similar case like this with David Seaman who uploaded political videos and always got on trending. Don't take my word for it, you can wait for the vidme team to give a statement about this video, but i remember they explain to David that Vidme will now let Political videos get to the hot page because politics can be a tough subject. Anyways, i don't think Vidme is censoring you sir. Censoring means that they won't let you upload at all or not let your followers watch your videos. It's more important that the subscription feed works and that All your followers can watch your videos instead of being in the hot page. Censorship means deleting your videos or hindering your fans from watching your vids. In Youtube sometimes they delete vids and censor the comment section, here in Vidme i don't think they do that. But i understand why you are annoyed by vidme. I hope they talk to you.
    • [ – ] Aiya parent reply sorry typo *but i remember they explain to David that Vidme will NOT let Political videos get to the hot page
  • [ – ] Restless-Researcher reply Btw, even typing in 'Thu' into the search bar on vidme and 'ThuleanPerspective' doesn't appear... but based on popularity, one should see the ThuleanPerspective channel first when typing in just 't'... Anyway, the censorship here is blatant.
    • jbboehr parent reply https://vid.me/search?q=Thulean works. 'Thu' is too imprecise and the ngram filter currently has a max length of 16 from when we had a max username length of 16.
    • waveyboy parent reply The same goes for if you try to type in "Vidme," even their own channel doesn't show up so I don't think it's based on popularity
  • [ – ] AfD_Chan reply >finally follow varg to vidme >see this okay.jpg
  • RedPillTV reply Varg is right, they don't want politically incorrect content here. I applied for verification and I was denied. Although I have seen verified members with 0 videos. I'm leaving my videos here in case anyone wants to see them but I won't upload again or even visit to view videos by others. I already have an account on Minds and they seem to truly respect free speech. See you there Varg.
  • [ – ] 2AwkwardDragons reply Do you really have any proof that theyre ACTUALLY removing your PIC videos? And youre toting a lot of ego and arrogance here. This is the only video Ive seen from you, and I already disagree with the whining bullshit I listened to. Take your content and followers, and enjoy another platform. If you were SO great, you wouldnt be here in the first place, right? Right. If youtube wasnt surpressing you as bad as vidme, why in blue balls are you on vidme? If you planned on leaving, and you feel as if Vidme wont listen to you, why waste our time with some "woe is me" rant? You have the following, you have the viewers, so what are you ACTUALLY trying to accomplish? Outside of just wanting to stir up a problem because you didnt stay "trending". Petty, dude. Petty.
    • [ – ] Directionally_Challenged parent reply From what I can tell, The reason vidme is doing this, is to ensure that any creator only has 1 trending video at a time. So you don't have this influx of big youtubers coming in and bringing their followers and dominating the front page and crushing everyone else and prevent anyone else from getting recognized. I've seen plenty of anti-pc stuff trending... It's all to do with making a platform where people can grow, so yeah. I agree with you a bit here.
    • [ – ] controller1gaming parent reply I was thinking the exact same thing. lol
      • [ – ] 2AwkwardDragons parent reply This has nothing to do with censorship because they keep my shit up, as well as other content creators. This has EVERYTHING to do with "I have a huge fuckin ego and my videos should be trending all the time because I brought SoOoOoOo many people to vidme, so im just gonna take my followers who are sucking my dick for attention, and find another platform to try and swing my dick around at and pretend im some important person but im lacking real substance in my REAL life". FFS leave then, if thats how you feel. What a joke.
    • newaccount parent reply I subscribed to Thulianperspective after him being tagged in Styx's video, I watched Thuliansperspective's videos and after wathching a couple days and several videos later I unsubbed. All I saw in his videos was whining and blaming things on other people. even more than that he has arrogance. a 100,000 subscribers by no means is a small feat but if he thinks he is a juggernaut then he should go back where he came from. His YouTube fame has gone over his head.
  • [ – ] AbandonedPlaces reply Maybe they just want to give other creators a chance, instead of the same people all the time on the trending page.... Sounds more fair to me!
  • [ – ] 0rb1t reply I'm gonna cautiously take vidme somewhat in defense on this. When I followed you here Varg, just on the second day it had you and Styx take the top 10 trending videos alone leaving all else down the food chain. From the point of view of an admin I too would probably have done something to make sure that exposure was shared a bit more. And I might have missed the target too with my approach.. That said, I too got suspicious when I saw what was going on and tried to look around for a statement of sorts. Either I'm blind or Vidme didn't mention anything about this on their blog, twitter, Reddit etc.. If one wants to run a truly transparent platform that is the nr. 1 cardinal sin!
    • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply But it's not about having multiple vidoes on the trending page. I understand that. The point is that they remove ALL political vidoes from the trending page.
      • [ – ] waveyboy parent reply The Politics & News category is the only one that doesn't show up on the front page because of something that happened a couple months back. They deemed it was too polarizing for users who landed on the front page (majority of it was all politics and Vidme wasn't like that before) so they made a separate category for it. It's on their subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/vidme/comments/5nmtz8/come_chat_with_us_about_the_new_hot_feed/
      • [ – ] 0rb1t parent reply I noticed.. All I'm saying(cautiously) is that Vidme perhaps got caught off guard when you walking in here with a substantial audience and over reacted as a result. Maybe it's my Danish blood making me gullible, but it could be an honest mistake. One they very much need to rectify of course! What I'm saying is perhaps give them a little more time before making a final decision? I'm very much looking forward to their answers to that feedback video they put out. You are not the only one who have pointed out critical things with this place.
        • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply But if it IS a mistake, then they made that mistake, and that's their problem. I move on because they made that mistake. Stop making mistakes...
          • [ – ] 0rb1t parent reply We all make mistakes at some point or another, owning up to them is what sets us apart. Programmers are notoriously slow at figuring out how social stuff work.. I'm not saying you are wrong and I might be naive, but perhaps give them a little more than just 2 weeks to figure out their stance? If they can't come up with something clear in let's say 10 days, then I'm all in favor of walking out of here.
    • Restless-Researcher parent reply Though other channels, such as ComputingForever, have often had more than one video on the trending page.
    • prepTorrent parent reply Vidme is changing and thinking it is a utopia unlike youtube is a false dichotmy, dude. Clearly Vidme did get a boost from people who are generally red-pill (such as against feminism's doctrine) migrating from grassroots big channels to videm and minds etc. Vidme has an "equality of outcome" system (or tantamount to it) for the trending page hotspots, so if you get knocked off of it by the staff (and automated software) if you are on it for more than a certain amount of time. It isn't "trending" then is it? Moreover, they have staff picks so they can groom their gamer girls (or similar) into the trending pages. People gamble in the hope they will get featured (trending page) and invest in this pay-to-play gig economy (not that disimilar to the Minds website). Consider the paid subscriptions and you can see that this vidme model essentially is a fame tax or more like a fame-and-fortune tax. It also has a butterfly effect on notoriety. It does not take into account tha some people, left...more to their own devices, 'grass roots style', would eventually, over their career, become just as famous with the net viewcount as a late bloomer since, for example, they would have a sleeper-hit viral video (or more than one non-viral gradual build-up videos in a series). The trending page's revolving door fame-and-fortune tax of vidme's redistribution of exposure model taxes people who get famous through early adopter viewership. So the other content creator who is not yet had their sleeper-hit gets a boost from the rotating door of the trending page which has knocked somebody else from the limelight hotspot. Then when that now-boosted content creator also gets their would-be-naturally-occuring viral-hit, it is multipled by the free boost they got early in theor career. So by comparison the early-adoption person is not as famous because their growth was stunted, and so they can die out. All this is compounded by the fact that vidme is grooming their "poster girls" into the trending page. It will be subject to the old networks strong arming their nepotism stars into the hotspots via back scratching. Vidme clearly did not feel as comfortable with the Thulean Perspective channel (aka varg) and knocked him off the trending spot manually but they had groomed other acts via the staff picks. I disagree with a lot of what varg has said in the past (of what I have seen) and I do not even watch his content really, but actually he was right about some stuff on this topic. Just because we do not agree with the content some people make, we mustn't fail to still look at the facts. Varg was sometimes anti-MGTOW but that is neither here nor there on this topic. The reality is, I can forsee vidme treating some MGTOW in the same way they treated him because they are less comfortable with the content and would rather give a staff pick to a gamer girl or similar. This topic should be important to Red-Pill people who are being soft censored on youtube. It all smacks of territoru grab and control of the narrative such as the fake news scam.
  • [ – ] Elvendream reply But your followers will see your videos no matter what. More popularity will simply attract trolls and leftist butthurt cucks who report and harass.
    • MeowTheRainbowX parent reply Sure, a lot of people will still see the videos, but if more people discover him, a lot of them might agree with what he has to say, and he could change a few opinions. How do you know he will only attract people who disagree?
  • [ – ] AdolfrRagnarrson reply Vidme has removed my comments about the founders of this site being Jewish. Good that you're leaving Varg, do not give this site any more traffic.
    • [ – ] bohemefit parent reply the minds creator is also jew... & most of gab is full of pro zionists & jew shills esp abrahamics that promote the jewchrist
      • [ – ] Connor__Anderton parent reply Minds.com is also horribly bland and almost 'clinical'. Furthermore, most of the videos/posts I see on there are about legalizing different drugs, assorted pro-Zionist rantings and 'how the human species are getting closer together than ever before'. It is, technically and content-wise, much worse than this.
        • [ – ] Connor__Anderton parent reply Upload speeds (or lack of) are painful on minds.com, too...
          • bohemefit parent reply lol they wont let me load my videos here. i just load on youtube & then upload the youtube link here. im not fussed about having trending manipulated so forth for i link from my blogs. i wouldnt want a purple haired pc muppet following my content anyway :) i generally load all the wonderful things around our' (not multi cultural) pagan roots - we all need visual reminders of our cultural roots (which cant be found in the ugly multi cultural PC content) this is why i load here.. if it reminds 1 soul of our roots & pagan heritage - im happy. not here for money. but did have to leave other channels for not being able to block literal witch hunt attacks mainly from abrahamic mental cases lol.
    • newaccount parent reply Shut it down! The Goyum know!
  • DeathTheGrimComedian reply Bra skit Varg, som vanligt. Alltså, det här jävla skitstället censurerar till och med skämt-videos som är politiskt inkorrekta. Och då är det på en helt anonym kanal som definitivt inte hamnar på någon trending-lista. :) Det luktar lång- och kroknäsa lång väg här. Minds verkar vara bra för yttrandefrihet. Har inte pröva att ladda upp några videor där ännu.
  • anorman728 reply I saw this on Reddit, and I think it's worth sharing. https://www.reddit.com/r/vidme/comments/63xpxr/looks_like_there_is_a_misconception_about_vidme/ I'm not saying this solves it because, honestly, I'm very new to this whole thing. I just thought it was worth sharing.
  • MarkvsMvro18 reply I knew that vidme was more abrahamic than jewtube.
  • uncle_semite reply it's insane that you can go to prison for having an opinion
  • staticmesh reply I am disappointed that they are silencing you, considering the large surge of activity you brought to Vid.me. Guess I'll check out Minds.com.
  • Sectual reply Maybe it's just that people are complaining about seeing your videos on the trending page because you're dominating (along with Styx). It's not right for them to remove your videos from the trending page. I really hope this isn't their plan for this site. It's such a promising place. And I totally agree that Vid.Me needs people like you and Styx. I completely agree with you Varg. Please don't go down this path Vid.Me.
  • Deplorable_ED reply Well this is disconcerting. The whole reason I moved to Vidme was because of the none PC aspect!
  • DesolationRome reply The old saying goes never talk about religion or politics.....but damn, those are two of the most interesting things to talk about.
  • MultiKillerjoe reply vidme's not that bad tbh i just grow tired of politic videos but you got point but still laters man vidme is for everyone not just political speakers why does everything have to be about politics now a days *facepalm*
  • [ – ] ALuzDeBaldr reply I think you should return the blog or create a website, and host your videos somewhere else. You have a loyal and growing audience, they will follow you.
    • [ – ] HammerOfDoom parent reply Its not just about maintaining an audience, its about expanding it, and these social media video platforms are very good at doing that unless the administrators of those platforms have a political agenda to maintain.
      • prepTorrent parent reply Here is why I think the vidme 'fame redistribution algorithm' (for want of a better name) is broken and they will never be able to fix it or get it right. So from what I gather vidme decided that (varg aka Thulean Perspective) a contraversial (sometimes political) content creator had been on the front trending page for 10 days and they wanted to rotate it so it would be fair seeing as they plan to have software do it to everybody in future automatically (this algorithm is what one might call the "fame redistribution algorithm"). It was specifically that rather than just it being "politics" being a hot potato topic. However, there is something not quite right about the 10 day being unfair exposure. The vidme account MariaTheGerman had been staff picked for promotion over and over again AND had been on the front page for ages (although not necessarily number1 - but then again maybe she was since she is number1 trending now). So it is not as if all other vidme accounts got a share of the ...morefame, but rather a select few are clearly promoted way above others. The thing that is dumb about the sharing out of fame is that it is like playing a racing car game (like TOCA 3 on the PC) and having "catch-up" enforced and you cannot disable it. It breaks the game and even when you drive really well and run the other car of the road, magically it can still catch up to you and even beat you. It is like that with vidme tampering with fame inertia and momentum. The redistribution of fame can have a disproportionate impact on the fame of another person n future as they get free momentum plus their own momentum they had waiting to blossom anyway as a late bloomer. So they can end up by an order of magnitude way more famous than other content creators in future to the point that no modification will ever curtail their ridiculously massive popularity. It is like a butterfly effect. Messing with fame with a fame-algorithm like vidme is doing works under the assumption that all content creators bloom at the start via an early adopter model and are not late bloomers or sleeper hits. There is no way to retroactively redistribute sleeper hit fame, and even if one could, the results combined with early adoption fame are chaotic and wildly unpredictable. That promoted content creator gets the initial "free boost of fame redistribution algorithm" (where others do not and in fact some are taxed on it) and they also get their naturally occurring late bloomer fame from a sleeper hit which is multiplied by the initia boost like a snowball effect so any redistribution of fame by then is nowhere nears as significant an effect on their runaway train fame as the damge done to the person taxed in fame. This is also an issue with money now being tied to accounts and (while dressed up as a sort of 'quantitatie easing') it robs people who are those content creators and also their fans who are ina contract with the content creator to get a product fit for purpose via tips, time watching, and even the new subscription funding model. Vidme are like gamblers who think they have a lid on their control issues when they code. They absolutely do not. I think this fame redistribution algorithm is anything but fair, and they have signed people up under a pretense they did not meet, and then, even if people leave, vidme have still had the profit of initial website exposure (in the press and google trends and so forth). I say this regardless of whether it is a contraversial content creator or anybody else as a content creator.
  • [ – ] Restless-Researcher reply non secundus!
  • Kentantino reply Holy shit sorry, but this guy is really full of himself we got mister important in the house lol.
  • Frankendoodle reply Fuck this guy,Vidme And Minds are the future
  • sooqua reply Sorry Varg... http://imgur.com/a/QgxaS
  • slaughtz reply I have no reason to disbelieve this behavior when the site's guidelines explicitly say that love speech is banned.
  • BaronMan reply So you've been at the top of hot for a couple days now. I don't believe it's an issue.
  • [ – ] LeonLaGrey reply I just switch to Vidme recently for me I have no problem with the platform, I actually like the community if you say your suppressed then how come this video is trending on the main page??? You have not provided no evidence whatsoever. No evidence am not seeing with VidMe vs YouTube comparison. YouTube has had many problems recently, this only discourage anyone not stay with this platform, you have no clue.
  • [ – ] antiseptic reply Honestly, I think their response is accurate. I can see why they wouldn't want politics on the front page, because it's controversial. I mean, regardless of what opinion you're saying, whether full on SJW, moderate Republican/Democrat, or whatever, people are going to be offended and disagree. It seems to me they want this to at least appear to be a fun place and not 'boring' or draining by having a whole lot of politics. That's just my 2 cents.
    • VukMedia parent reply I have no problem with the idea that other voices have to get equal airtime. I think that's a big-time problem w/ YouTube. However, I have a very serious problem when all sides are not fairly represented on the main videos page. I also have a very serious problem when there are apparently attempts to unfairly suppress those w/ political opinions. Surely, there must be better ways to handle this.
  • Maplaptop reply This video is not censored at all, Stupid old man getting annoyed because no one is viewing his crap politics YouTube channel.
  • MysticSword reply Probably this is what's happening: https://www.reddit.com/r/vidme/comments/63xpxr/looks_like_there_is_a_misconception_about_vidme/
  • CrucifixA_ZorA_MagnificaT reply This upsets me!!! It's not fair!!! I'm sick of this constant injustice everywhere. I only went to Vidme in support of you Varg so wherever you go I'll follow. Hail Odin! We'll keep on keeping on!!!
  • WhiteExperience reply I was starting to like this place. All right, let's move to ВКонтакте!
  • SkogComplex reply The problem these admin types need to understand is , the truth is the farthest thing from pc and people want the truth. We want freedom. We don't care if freedom is called 'hate speech' now, that's just an Orwellian tactic. We act out of love, but if our enemies call it 'hate' , we don't care. f course the enemies of truth are going to vilify it. That's why you don't give in to them. If vidme loses a great opportunity here, it will be up to minds.com and gab.ai and related sites to take up the cause of freedom and start defending that in the face of political suppression, no matter what buzz phrases like 'hate speech' are used to suppress. .
  • Irminsul2017 reply Well...I'm done with vidme...shame because I really wanted to like this.
  • [ – ] Craftwithcookies reply I'm sorry but this is starting to get annoying. How come, everyones like "heyy let's move to vidme" and I was like ok, so I changed the entire format of my channel to settle here (which took alot of work and thinking). But now, Vidme is already bad and now everyones moving to minds.com? Im not saying minds.com is bad, Im sure its good, but its just annoying, i dont feel like pulling my channel off vidme and putting it in minds.com. Next thing you know minds.com is gonna make a little mistake, or get shut down or something, then everyones gonna be like "Alright its time to move on to Twitch.tv or something"
    • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply Ha ha. Well, welcome to an age of Migrations....
      • -Nikki-9- parent reply I had noticed your videos weren't on the trending page, and your channel stopped appearing in my "following" list even though it was there initially, and I watch your videos the most. "Say something nice..." when commenting is a bit of a give away (ie. don't speak the TRUTH, or else). Oh well, as you know, I'm not one for adventures, but here we go again (grumble grumble, packs second breakfasts).
    • wolfalexzemla parent reply just got here myself but i will follow free speech. i did not know about twitch thanks :)
  • [ – ] somebodyoncetoldme reply Id love it even more if the videos would just fucking play, mine will not no matter what i do so im leaving this shit hole
  • Connor__Anderton reply I am also on Minds.com : https://www.minds.com/Connor_Anderton
  • [ – ] BeingHere reply I also have a minds channel. minds.com/beingherelive ....shamelessly advertising my channel! But I truely agree with everything said, and have subscribed to you on minds, and will subscribe to anyone who subscribes to me on minds. So bring it!!!! Minds is a beautiful platform too.
  • luishadmag reply Probably nowadays they don't consider RPG videos as "gaming", only videogame videos. I don't doubt they're boycotting you, but maybe this is why your gaming videos are not on the trending page. I'll sure follow you on Minds as well, and I hope it is better there, cause I'm tired of creating accounts.
  • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas reply youtube are so corrupted, Their greed, their disloyalty, their dishonesty, their selfishness, their stupidity and their neglect to their small channels has stooped themselves even lower. Ever since google brought youtube in 2006 They do not care for the small channels as they left us in the dark and leave us nothing but restrictions. Youtube only looks out for the big channels, big corporations and celebrity endorsements, this has now pissing me off since 2009, the only thing that I am mostly furious about, is the fact they knew about the subscribing bug glitch as this has been going on since Spring 2012. I had over 10,000 subscribers and then it went down to over 7,000 subscribers and as I saw their video titled 'Let's talk about subscriptions' they deliberately beat themselves around the bush by telling us such bullshit when all they needed to do is make a view clarifications and be completely honest about the issue of the subscribing glitch, but instead they have proven to be lazy, ...morebone idol, manipulative and untrustworthy to us. Youtube only likes us users when we are on their platform kissing its ass, but I am here to tell you as it is, youtube is a piece of shit website full of corporate bullshit and greed, that's why I'm not returning back to youtube they really disgust me with their lack of inability And since I stopped posting videos completely on YouTube as I Left youtube at new years eve 2016, I just knew at some point to a degree they were messing up again and now karma just bit them on the back side in 2017. Fuck youtube, it is now dead, Vidme all the way.
    • [ – ] dishgoldfish parent reply Actually, the content creators on youtube are greedy, and selfish. "They do not care for the small channels as they left us in the dark and leave us nothing but restrictions" have you seen the small channels on youtube? laggy bandicam videos? unedited videos? You obviously only upload on youtube. " I am mostly furious about, is the fact they knew about the subscribing bug glitch as this has been going on since Spring 2012." Did all of your subscribers watch your videos? or did you beg in the comment section for subscribers?
  • SomethingNewNow reply I just found you on here a couple of days ago! I will see you on the next platform, i will continue to build my database of video content within VIDME & other platforms. I will also continue to show the world the truth behind being a famous YouTuber. My link is - https://www.minds.com/SomethingNewNow

  • All_Nighter reply Kek this is on the first page now
  • Aaripaa reply They don't even allow dots on As! FUCK THEM!
  • Verfarkas reply And Liveleak? Spread the "bad seed" (redpill) videos everywhere ;-)
  • Hayatori reply I know what you mean man. My video got censored for talking about censorship, Here is the vid: https://vid.me/HjcN
  • andrewcrow reply Found this vid on the 'hot' tab in the android app!
  • TheMightyGluestick reply Dammit, I followed Varg over here to set up a sister channel to my youtube one, and now he is leaving! Oh well... *roasts marshmallows over the burning wreckage*
  • SpartacusPenguin reply This is a plain and simple warning from the people to you VIDME, you aren't so amazing and special that you can turn into a totalitarian just like youtube ! Don't think you might survive the backlash, because you're too small to ever recover from a youtube style exodus ! you're far too young and weak to make any egregious violations of free speech ! Please do not become the monster that people ran away from. losing 1 user like me wont make a difference, but it will show and prove that you are resorting to the same insanity that you supposedly left and opposed youtube for !
  • JohnAnderson reply I just want to know what his political non conformist position is? But it caught my interest. I thought VIDME was for less censorship than YouTube?
  • Toutvids reply Typically I don't watch any videos in the 'hot' tab anyways. I prefer the new tab or featured, but mostly new.
  • Mars-Shaker-War-369 reply YouTube = Bolsheviks Jew ZioNazi's Communism hud for antiAmericans antiChristian , antiWestern Civilization etc
  • Evilbucket reply Ok I am already on minds.com
  • Krops23 reply It's concerning but Vid.me is getting its feet under them. Hopefully they allow more free speech without worrying about a witch hunt against the supposed "alt-right".
  • Allen_G_Bagby reply I just started on Vidme. This is very discouraging to hear. I was barely getting a foothold on YouTube and decided to come here and start over. Pretty much everything I do is not politically correct.
  • Boodang reply Has Vidme succumbed to leftist political correctness? Pathetic.
  • hvitulv reply Well, this video is still on the treding screen, maybe you sacred them?
  • PrinceIce85 reply y'all should subscribe to PrinceIce 85 on youtube XD
  • no-name reply Literally the first video trending on vlogs right now
  • no-name reply I didn't even know you had videos on this site. I just found this video without searching for this channel. You'll be fine
  • no-name reply Youtube isn't just a problem for controversial opinion channels anymore, even gaming channels have their problems with the site. Vid.me doesn't want the site to be saturated with opinion channels or it might put off some people. The trending and catogory pages are practically the face of the site.
  • JanJacobsen reply If that's true, they have just lost their competitive edge over YouTube and there is NO reason to stay here imo.
  • Mazack reply Was checking out an alternative to youtube. Thanks for the honest information. I'll keep adblock enabled for this site.
  • Draftkingkilla7582 reply The whole reason I came here is because you tube taken away our free speech!! If they are pulling same shit here I will just go back to You Tube!!
  • prepTorrent reply I do hope things work out with the blockchain video technology but I would not be surprised if (by governments etc.) it is wrongfully branded as a "Dark Web" technology, then somehow (even in a roundabout way) made "illegal" (and they clamp down one "non-transparent" data be sent from computers). Leaning on some technologies is inevitable, whether that be websites or more decentralised, distributed technologies such as blockchain and torrent. Leaning on technologies need not be the only way forward (even though it seems to be part of the equation - and justifiably so). I think that a person's "behaviours" (as in a consensus or etiquette) can help. For your on content, please do consider the #prepTorrent filenaming convention as a way forward for naming files that can be used in torrents and stored as (a known quantity) approximate filesize on optical disk like DVD. I made a very basic (no sound) text slidehow video explaining how to, for those who want. https://vid.me/bGun
  • [ – ] MrJoelDee reply While I'm not saying I doubt or believe what you're saying, IF you were taken down from trending videos for any political opinions you may have shared, why is this video, a video clearly calling out Vidme for allegedly doing this, IN the trending videos? To me, common sense would say that since they are getting bad publicity from this video, they wouldn't allow it in the trending videos either, yet here it is. Also as far as YouTube being fine if you're speaking your view on the "tyrants" of the world, that's only true if you're speaking against the tyrants that YouTube agrees are tyrants. If you speak against someone THEY like, then you are censored there as well, which is one of the MANY reasons people are leaving YouTube and looking for another place to share their content.
  • jbrony reply I saw this video on the trending page...Just saying
  • neversurrender reply We are only here for content like yours. I'm on minds and will delete my vidme account.
  • VIPtronic reply But Varg, this video is on top of the trending page!
  • Donde reply youtube is getting worst
  • Cryptonomicon reply Murder is the law of killing. This man is a murdering cunt. His actions destroyed honest lives! Cunt If the law can't make him pay, I fucking will
  • wolfalexzemla reply note to vid me. i may have to follow thulean i believe in free speach
  • wolfalexzemla reply vid me does not require your address and phone, why would anyone want to watch and comment on yt. facebook and yt are building a digital tyranny
  • H2OMudkip reply I saw this video on YouTube and now I see it here
  • Cryptonomicon reply Fuck you. A murdering cunt like you will not go free.
  • nand3 reply I noticed I didn't see your channel in channels I'm following until today.
  • anorman728 reply Well, I was getting excited about Vid.me, and I had started (but just canceled) uploading a series I already have on YT for setting up a VPN on DigitalOcean. But, I despise censorship. Looks like I'll be looking elsewhere.
  • Str8Thug reply Please help Me - I have tried to get verified twice - both times I was not. seems like I have many more views & friends than others verified.... Can Anyone help me? #Verifyme
  • Chaos reply Interesting thoughts.
  • ShinyBigBoo reply I've had multiples of your videos show up every day in the trending section and I haven't searched for any of your content...
  • gospelofChrist reply How to go back to Heaven. The gospel and the everlasting gospel. https://youtu.be/2xCTRcO5M7k
  • JimGiant reply With all the social media censorship going on at the moment it's easy to jump to conclusions. Maybe you're right but they are growing very fast at the moment so perhaps they made a mistake or there is an innocent explanation. Personally I'm giving them a month before deciding whether this platform is for me. Have you tried messaging the staff for a detailed response?
  • Ablazewithlight reply I Varg please change your display picture in minds.com
  • LordFashHeart reply You're still on the trending page, perhaps they listened?
  • wolfn9z reply Bye bye Vidme
  • JamieG reply https://steemit.com/welcome
  • Skumm reply Its a weird sign when I see this video sitting next to some other vid promoting Porn stars playing videogames.
  • Joel-the-Troll reply Won't let me upload. Keeps stopping at 91% complete. Three times now.
  • MarcelJr reply Just got here 5 minutes ago... Sad message... www.marcelrichardjunior.com
  • SeriousDefect reply See you over at minds varg. Thanks
  • maxlac reply I am very sad Varg is leaving since this site looks really nice, but the most important thing is missing: FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Am I allowed here to say that I hate jews? If not, fuck off, I am going to minds.
  • zoma43 reply I love this platform, I see it spiking in growth in the next few months. Haven't posted my first video but I can't wait to become more involved with this community!
  • JarlOfSwot reply Strangely enough this was first on my trending page.
  • thurisaz reply DONE!!! see you on MINDS.com!!
  • Maplaptop reply Well Vidme put this video on the hot page, Which is like the front page of YouTube.
  • Brpyb reply VidMe, stop being racist towards Varg, or we riot!!
  • JamesFuturist reply Man this sucks. I was hoping this place was different.
  • DavidTeunissen reply Varg patience the side has a overkill they need a upgrade seems..
  • [ – ] Iknowthepassword123 reply How about a gofundme to create a non PC video platform. NonPCVid.com ??
    • [ – ] jbboehr parent reply Hosting video is expensive (storage, bandwidth, labor), so you would need a recurring source of income or patrons. Ads are probably not going to be an option due to the nature of the content. I assume gab.ai is doing paid subscriptions for precisely this reason. We'll see if it becomes a sustainable business model for them. A decentralized P2P architecture is possible for reduced cost, but there are trade-offs in QoS and privacy, and it's technically more complicated (more paid or volunteer labor).
      • bane parent reply I agree, I'm also working on the same thing for wrongthink.net.
      • prepTorrent parent reply People paying for subscriptions and tipjars is still expenive. You have been ramming the MariaTheGerman channel down people's throats for ages under staff picks and her being near the top (and also number1 spot) of the trending (and similar) pages over and over again. I'm not bashing MariaTheGerman here. What I am saying is that some people might say you are robbing them (fraud) under false pretenses. If bandwidth is expensive then people are paying for that, unadulterated. Clearly you don't mind somebody being famous when it suits you. And what about people who get this early boost of fame when, they have a sleeper hit coming anyway that would make them a late bloomer and famous that way? It is unfair on people other than the cheery-picked because the cherry-picked then get both (now and then). Looks like you are trying to socially engineer a female PewDiePie and are treating already successful guys as though they command a glass ceiling. That will not bode well for a website's popual...morerity and image, no matter how you try to spin it. The over promotion (especially at this stage when it means more to gain a larger fraction of momentum and is overcomes intertia) of MariaTheGerman is reminiscent of Laci Green on youtube getting blatantly cheery picked as featured because she suited an image. Like vidme now, that was when the 'featured' page on youtube had a massive impact on the fraction of views a channel got from all views the website had. Look how that turned out. Toxic feminism and SJW culture came about and so the mighty had fallen after a while. It was, for a big part, that toxicity that made youtube uncool. Vidme had something good and are ruining it. Meanwhile they have that Hugh Manson sock account that takes potshots at people and is the polar opposite of being featured (staff picked). Vidme could totally get taken down by legal means the way grooveshark did, and there are plenty of music tracks in MariaTheGerman's videos which you have promoted. What a pity that vidme had a good thing going and let the power go to their head so early. People have been trying to help you and work with you and you'll end up irritating them or more. People pay and you are taxing them by fame and thereby the payments. I really wouldn't meddle with people's content like that and play god. Socially engineering your girl gamer is likely to be a disaster. The #GamerGate could become #VidmeFameTaxGate
  • SolarSun reply Disappointing with this platform
  • [ – ] EuroAmerican reply Vidme is weird.... I get followers but they don't watch any of the videos on my channel.
    • wolfalexzemla parent reply just learning vid me and usually i go to the front page and have not had the time to watch any on a specific channel, and i had not thought to do that yet.
  • [ – ] kendrakane reply Personally i agree with one of your followers. @Elvendream thinks it will prevent you from getting "leftist" viewers if your videos don't stay on the trending page. Unless you want a variety of viewers with different opinions.
    • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply What's wrong with "leftist" viewers? No point in preaching to the choir... no point in arguing with people you already agree with.
      • [ – ] Elvendream parent reply The problem is that these people are attracted to drama and will only click on your videos to report them or troll. It's good to have healthy debate but it's not usually the case with the left.
      • [ – ] OpenBordersForIsrael parent reply I have a lot more in common with most "far-lefties" than I do with an American "TV-dinner conservative".
        • OpenBordersForIsrael parent reply A lot of them aren't aware of this fact though, and it's extremely fun to confuse the hell out of them. I could probably go to an anti-Capitalist protest held by them and fit right in. They just don't realize that Communism is the same (((bullshit))), apart from the ones who are perfectly aware, but don't give a shit and have purely malevolent intentions.
        • kendrakane parent reply That's because the so called "far left" is the same age group as the "far right".
      • kendrakane parent reply I never said i had a problem with the left. I vote democrat. But people like keeping with their own group. You have that sense of community right here. You don't have that on you tube. You tube is great for playing the "devils advocate" though. Lot's of people with different political backgrounds. I want to see what the fuss is all about. controversy gets views.
  • haraldharfagr reply I never liked VidMe anyway, lets go minds!
  • MultiKillerjoe reply just do both vidme and youtube it helps get you known and if your a gamer lols
Download the Vidme app!
