  • [ – ] November_Fox reply First off, I've been looking forward to watching this video ever since I heard you first mention on Twitter you were going to make it. Second, if I'm understanding your question correctly, I can understand how the percentage can go down. As I'm sure you know with percentages, all numbers involved have to equate to 100%. So in order for one side to go up a percent, the other side has to go down a percent so it can still equal 100%
    • MrJoelDee parent reply Yes, you understood the question correctly and thank you for explaining it in a way that makes sense. I hope I did the video justice and that it was worth the wait.
  • AsKaGangsta reply i voted no too :)
  • [ – ] Roolooth reply I totally agree, high numbers does not always equate to good quality content and low ones are not a reflection on the quality or worth of one either. It's all a matter of taste. The number ratings doesn't make me decide to click on or skip by a video. The thing is to enjoy making your videos, experiment and try various things or if you prefer just keep in one narrow specialist niche, either way it's got to be something you enjoy doing, don't get caught up in the numbers game.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply Exactly. Very well said. I got caught up in the numbers game back when I was on YouTube for a short time and started doing content that the vast majority if my audience wanted me to do, but "I" wan't truly happy nor did I enjoy making videos much anymore, so I stopped, as well as deleted some videos that had gotten 2,000 and 3,000 views by doing the "popular" content. Always stay true to your heart and enjoy the videos "you" make. The numbers don't matter.
  • [ – ] Y2JayDoesAsia reply I voted yes, because I believe many people out there are influenced by viewcounts and there are smaller channels that want to have this option available. And the people that ARE influenced by the viewcounts are casual viewers, the type of viewer that actually doesn't post comments and engage in comments anyway. They basically sponge the videos, soak them up but don't give much back. (ie- no engagement). I've seen this on Youtube for years, you do a vid that gets a hundred views and 0 comments and 1 or 2 thumbs up. On Youtube they give you the option to hide your subscriber count. Unfortunately hiding the subscriber count does nothing because people can see the views. But, on the other hand, I believe if you conceal all the measurement metrics, views, subscribers, upvotes, and perhaps even comments. People will then be forced to actually look at the thumbnail, and title, and description, and click on the video, to figure out if it's actually a good video. It would be a novel thing th...moreough (ie- never been done before) because AFAIK no video platform has given you these options before.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply I completely see what you're saying. My main reason for voting "no" was because in the way the tweet was worded, it seemed to me that maybe it was a case of people getting their feelings hurt because other people had higher views than them, and it seemed like this was being done perhaps as just another attempt, as is done so much in the world these days, to kind of "soften the blow" or because it just wasn't fair that some people get higher views than others and I'm just totally tired of people and companies catering to things like that. I don't really think Vidme put the option out there for that reason. To me it just came across that way in the wordage.
  • [ – ] WarpSpeedStarship2 reply Life might not be fair but that doesn't mean that I have to like it!!!!!
  • lambdog76 reply voted no. I think you may be reading too much into it; Differing from you though, I will usually be influenced by a view count to watch if it is high over one that is low in some cases.
  • [ – ] Anonymous_Gamer reply it's all subjective to what each person likes not what everyone else likes.
