  • [ – ] WolvenMedic reply "Hello, welcome to my bedroom"- Damn you don't mess about XD I'm only teasing dear. Everything you're saying is exactly how I felt watching all this go down last time the site hand an internal meltdown and I fully agree with what you say. I kept my cool talking with the team and let them know people weren't happy. Then this weekend happened and damn. I hope they do start to take some of the feedback more seriously and try not to shut people out. Like I always say I love this damn site, just wish the best for everyone. I spoke up this time because I don't like seeing people picked on and villainized for only trying to help the site. Some viewers took things too far in my opinion and now everything is just a mess XD Thank you for giving your point of view dear, hopefully people will see this and realise that they/we were only trying to help. We didn't expect changes over night, just some word that they were in the mist of fixing the issue rather than radio silence. Like you said, the co...moremmunication is all out of wacky and that needs to be sorted. Well done! P.S I hate confrontation too but this time I just closed my eyes and waited for the punch XD
    • [ – ] PieAndLove parent reply I don;t mess about!!!! ;> I'm glad I can voice the thoughts of other people who are thinking along the same lines. Gotta amplify and boost the hell outta this message in hopes it gets across. This communication problem has got to be figured out, definitely, or else this site is never gonna work. (oh boy gotta ready up for that punch then *braces self*)
      • [ – ] WolvenMedic parent reply Oh you'll be fine dear, don't you worry. Yes, as soon as they get communication back to the way it was right at the start of the year. That would be progression. I really do hope that will happen, soon before it's too late.
        • PieAndLove parent reply That would be progress! I remember those days but it feels like it was so long ago when they actually spoke to us like people and all.
  • [ – ] BrianAiya reply Damn! ;) When PieandLove makes a vlog instead of a music video, you know she is serious. Yes you are right. Most of us didn't give up, we still have little hope left, but we want both sides to have empathy and understand. Well said Bella Also, pls upload more vlogs like these, just talking so we can get to know you more.
    • PieAndLove parent reply It's SRS *airhorns*. Mutual understanding on both sides is key in getting this mess sorted out. Cannot stress that enough. I hope more people are thinking in terms of how each side feels now. I'll try to post more vlogs but u kno me, gotta post them tunes !!
  • [ – ] Hoshi-Hana reply The verification system could really need to get a serious facelift. I was a bit weary when I had to fill out the google form document. Seems a bit easy to just type your social media and email in. The whole H3H3 thing is living proof. It's not a bad way to do it, if it actually just worked as it should. As I have a degree in Information I know how easy it is to cross check the facts. Lol. And then it's the net! Never assume for one sec that people are who they say they are without proper research. It's nice and positive but insanely naive xD Great video! :D
    • [ – ] PieAndLove parent reply Mmhmm. Vidme just tweeted something that leaves more questions about the whole thing; they may not even be referring to H3H3, but: https://twitter.com/vidme/status/874370693751754753 weird. Brings up more issues, not just with verification, but with security, too. There's a lot of messes that just keep getting bigger and bigger now.
      • [ – ] Hoshi-Hana parent reply Indeed it does! They want to get small as well as huge YouTubers over but haven't prepared the proper security measures to make sure we're safe. Wow, that's just grand. It's literally a buffet for hackers, spammers, impersonators and the likes serving our accounts and videos on a silver plate with no real effort. I hope the two-step verification comes sooner rather than later. xD
  • [ – ] theoldsparrow reply You are my favorite vocalist on vidme. and since I happen to be the fairy godfather with no Sicilian mob connections if you are having a problem getting a donation at an exact amount allow me to donate in excess of the necessary amount for a payout. This is not a fix completely and your grievances are completely legitimate but I hope this will be a stop gap measurement to give leeway to a more permanent fix. Being in the midway of things I hope that things will become things in the way that things are things but not without things that are necessary to become things with all of the things but not without.
    • [ – ] PieAndLove parent reply You are a beacon of goodness and wonderfulness in these times of confusion and weird things. Thank you so much, my friend. I hope things will becomes things in the way that things are things but not without things that are necessary to become things with all of the things but not without as well. Things things things
  • [ – ] HeroicVillain reply Why everybody always hating on trolls??? Nah, I kid, I know what @itsOnlyRawman meant.
  • [ – ] lambdog76 reply Quite coherant.
  • [ – ] Tentacle reply Well thought out and direct, glad to see so many speaking up finally.
  • [ – ] MysticSword reply Well said. Keep up the good work.
  • [ – ] Marzipandorica reply As someone who recently got verified in the past week, I'm very puzzled by their process. Because I was waiting for 50 followers like the VIdme FAQ said to but then I saw so many channels with no videos, or any sort of life on the channel getting verified. So I was wtf? Well if they can I guess I'll just try. It worked but still, it irked me how a channel with no videos are getting verified. And a lot of them were decent sized channels from youtubes side. Or at least they claimed to be those channels.
    • [ – ] PieAndLove parent reply Seriously? I knew the YouTubers' channels got verified very quickly, but holy hell, WHAT?! Verification is more messed up than I previously thought, holy shit.
      • [ – ] Marzipandorica parent reply yeah, If you scroll through the recently verified you can find them. There's a few with zero videos and 30-70 or even more followers. A few of the youtube channel ones I recognized now have a couple of videos up, but when they were verified they had none. I don't know if all of these were YouTubers but either it's bs for any channel to be verified with zero videos
  • VukMUS reply We are in complete agreement with you.
  • [ – ] HazysDay reply A hamsters in party hats offensively offended me in the past and they will do it again ! Hahaha just kidding ! But the funny thing is know matter what you do someone get offended ! Go figure !
  • [ – ] Dos_Gaming reply I agree with the entitlement thing. We should start to focus on ourselves and not the devs. Youtubers have a good time with less than 0 interaction with their devs!
    • PieAndLove parent reply They do get along fine without communication with the devs/with limited communication, but remember how things were here back in late December/early January? When we could just message the devs on Discord and get answers to our questions? What happened to that interactivity? Why did they go dark on keeping in touch with the wants and needs of their content creators? Focusing on ourselves is a great idea in theory and I definitely support exercising that in reality, but we don't have all the tools that we need to do that to the best of our ability, and some of these tools are, like I said in the video, stuff that people have been asking for for months.
  • [ – ] SamEarl13 reply I totally agree with everything you said, even the fact that we're ending up looking a bit entitled. Problem is like you said the Vidme team haven't been very good at answering things and until people get that simple answer to whatever their questions are (with full transparency) more and more people will want to ask them.
    • PieAndLove parent reply It's a cycle that we're stuck in alright, and honestly the more and more people talk about this and I speak with people, it really seems everything could start to get fixed if the vidme team deals with the transparency issue.
  • thy_koosk reply I agree with this video 100% !!
  • [ – ] Fanny_Urbanhomesteader reply I've watched several vids on this topic. I won't be surprised if it puts many off. I know I brought about 10 people over from youtube. None are what you would call famous.However they were verified the 1st try and I was denied. Maybe because they were all male ? People can't even find me when they come over , makes one put their efforts in other arenas .Anyway no idea how they work the verification process, but from someone who works in social networking. Favoritism will kill a site. Just my humble opinion on that.
    • PieAndLove parent reply That's kinda odd how those other people were verified but you're still not. Who knows how the verification process really works after the application is filled out; again, transparency on stuff like how channels get approved for verification is a plate the Vidme team should step up to. I agree with your opinion on favoritism, it's definitely not a sound way to run a site like this.
  • [ – ] KotaTail reply The vidme team should really step up their game a little bit, because they're angering the community a bit while lashing out at those that are speaking out... wtf
    • PieAndLove parent reply Certain team members are definitely in hot water with the community at the moment, that's for sure. It's disheartening.
  • [ – ] MarzieMalfoy reply I'm so happy you spoke up. This took amazing courage. This whole situation is confusing and I hope it gets fixed sooner rather than later. Anyways.. I also want to say that watching this video last night gave me hope. The more of us that speak up, the better they will hear our cry. Amazing job, Pie! <3 #praisebetopie
    • PieAndLove parent reply I saw your video and I'm glad you for spoke up too! Definitely this is wildly different from anything else I would post, so it did take a lot of self-convincing to sit down and say everything and then post it. Like you said, the more of us speak up, the better they'll hear us, and hopefully this gave some other people hope as well, along with maybe convincing others to speak out too. <3
  • [ – ] Outlet_Podcast reply I really enjoy how honest your video is; you're not trying to be a crazy show off and your goofy-ness is authentic. Keep it up.
  • Cathar5i5 reply Dude that tweet is tea
  • MarkWhippy reply Is that all people are freaking out about? Someone tricked vidme. I'm sure vidme are already aware they screwed up and are working on it
