  1. mahoushojo added a post in a topic is there any PULL equivalent which features Latin American e-people?   

    I could probably add a "Latino Snowflake" tag to the list of official tags so Spanish speaking snowflakes are easier to find. However, as @Sodapop said above, the first summary post should be in English and posts should be summarized in English/translated when necessary. This doesn't necessarily have to be for every post discussed, just more important things. This is mainly because if mods can't understand what is being said in a topic, it can make reports confusing.

    ASMR Youtubers
    Anyone down to discuss ASMR youtubers? I didn’t see any topics for this kind of thing and personally listen to ASMR sometimes, so I was wondering what other people thought. 
    Who are your favorites, who you wish was more popular, who you don't like, etc... Or talk about drama that has happened, ASMRist beef, or how you feel about sexualized ASMR and such.
    Feel free to talk about more people than who I included in the first post ^-^ I just included some of the more famous/controversial people to help start off discussion. And if you have anything that you think I should add to this post or some other drama, please tell me! 
    EDIT: Forgot to write definition of ASMR lol (also watching a video by anyone I listed here is a pretty good demonstration of what most videos are like)
    Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a colloquial term used for an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia.
    Examples:
    ASMR Darling
    Youtube Channel // Instagram // Twitter // Reddit AMA // Reddit Account // Facebook

    Information:
    Real name is Taylor. Started doing ASMR sometime in 2015, and is close to one million subscribers. Mainly known for makeup rp's and various types of trigger videos.
    Controversies:
    Recently was involved in drama where her Ex-Boyfriend (named Matthew) hacked her Youtube channel and posted a creepy, very personal video telling her he loved her. Afterwards, she took down the video and posted a response to the video, explaining what happened. She mainly got criticized for doing the response video in ASMR and excusing the creepy, controlling behavior displayed by her ex.Ex Boyfriend's Video //  Her ResponseHas been criticized for having more subs than she deserves, which is largely due to being shouted out by people like Pewdiepie and other famous Youtubers reacting to ASMR videos.--
    Gentle Whispering
    Youtube (Asmr) // Youtube (Vlogs) // Instagram // Twitter // Facebook

    Information:
    Real name is Maria. From Russia and moved to the United States. Is (the first?) ASMR youtuber to reach one million subscribers. Mainly known for her voice.
    Controversies:
    Released some erotic ASMR voice clips years agoSometimes overdramatic in her vlogsSource: https://www.reddit.com/r/nsfwasmr/comments/4vp1yq/so_gentlewhispering_made_a_few_erotic_whisper/ --
    Ephemeral Rift 
    Youtube // Twitter // Facebook // Blog // Patreon

    Information:
    Real name is Paul. Typically does the "really out there" ASMR videos where he plays certain characters inspired by Lovecraftian lore, but is mainly known as the guy who put microphones in potatoes.
    Controversies:
    Has said that women shouldn’t be angry that they’re getting dick picks if they put their body on display.Suggested HeatherFeather and GentleWhispering should collab on a video with him, where they both fondle his balls. He then made other derogatory remarks about them, as only being after fame and attention and implied that they would be willing to do it due to them having done more sexual ASMR videos in the past. Although this was for a video about a character who is supposed to be sexist, it came off as very creepy.Gallery of the receipts: http://imgur.com/a/Ju5ksReddit Thread about the Drama: https://www.reddit.com/r/asmr/comments/3pju92/discussion_is_ephemeral_rift_a_bully_posting/?sort=confidence--
    Heather Feather
    Youtube // Twitter // Instagram // Reddit Account // Reddit AMA // Facebook // Blog

    Information:
    One of the original ASMRists. First popularized the "sk" sound. Has pretty varied videos, ranging from makeup ASMR to roleplays to experimental stuff.
    Controversy: 
    Was originally questioned a lot for the strange camera angles in her videos. Later, she revealed that she had a problem with her neck and had to get surgery on it, thus explaining the weird angles.Didn't make videos for a while, and very recently stated on twitter that she felt unsafe and that bad things had happened, but she couldn't talk about them. She confirmed that she would return to doing ASMR soon, though.Source: https://twitter.com/HeathFeathASMR/status/888857631628177409--
    Raffy Taffy
    Youtube // Twitter

    Information:
    ASMRist mainly known for his tapping videos. Also the source of the asmr meme "the case makes good sounds"
    Controversies:
    -Used ASMRist True Binaural's sound without asking in a video, and True Binaural became very angry about it. Raffy apologized, but TB was still mad and drama ensued.Full explanation of events here: https://www.reddit.com/r/asmr/comments/5vgvye/discussion_asmr_drama_raffytaphyasmr_true/--
    Jojo ASMR
    Youtube // Instagram

    Controversies:
    Used to have a commentary channel called Sinn0h that he constantly spammed comment sections with self-advertising it. He would make sock puppet accounts on Youtube to like the comment and comment under it as to make it seem like he was more popular.Links to his Sinn0h stuff: Encyclopedia Dramatica // Sinn0h Twitter // Youtube ChannelHad a Patreon during his time as Sinn0h where he would frequently not follow through with rewardsTitles a lot of his ASMR videos with really clickbait-y titles (ex. most of his videos have "YOU WILL FALL ASLEEP" in the title somewhere)--
    My personal favorites are probably Ppomo, Trigger Happy ASMR, and ASMRSurge. I think they all put a lot of effort into their content.

    Boogie2988 / Francis / Steven Williams
    Boogie2988
    Youtube // Twitter // Twitch // Instagram

    Summary
    Boogie2988 (Steven Jason Williams) is an American Youtuber mainly known for his gaming-themed videos. He first became popular through his comedy sketch videos based on his “Francis” persona, where he parodied a stereotypical gamer. Boogie is also known for being open about his struggles with childhood abuse, mental illness, and obesity which he occasionally talks about in videos. In 2017, he received gastric bypass surgery and is attempting to lose weight. In 2018, he divorced from his wife of 5 years, Desiree Williams. For a more detailed look at his life, his “Draw My Life” video from 2013 can be found here.
    Controversy
    Boogie has long been the subject of controversy. Much of this stems from him talking about subjects he is not qualified to talk about, or trying too hard to have "centrist" viewpoints. There has also been much controversy over whether or not he is emotionally manipulative in his private life towards his wife/friends/girlfriends he's had. He also seems to rant a lot on stream, leading to him having to backpedal on Twitter later.
    "I'm not a drama Youtuber!" & Oversharing
    Despite saying that he hates drama, he proceeds to talk about it quite a lot, all while trying to stay extremely centrist as to not upset anyoneSeems to make a video about his opinion on every piece of drama that emerges, ranging from Logan Paul to political drama to Twitch "thots"Oversharing his divorceMuch of the divorce process from his wife was overshared on stream, where he would break down on stream over issues in their marriage and talk about their sex lifeBecause of the intensity of these breakdowns, people speculated his wife might be cheating Ultimately, Boogie says that they split amicably and that cheating was not case, though speculation still continues due to Boogie's extreme anxiety throughout itAnita Sarkeesian Issues
    Some background on Anita Sarkeesian & his involvement with her:Anita Sarkeesian is a Canadian-American feminist media critic. She is known for creating the Feminist Frequency website and tends to view and critique media through a feminist perspective. During VidCon 2017, Boogie had to share a panel with Anita Sarkeesian on the experience of women online. During this panel, Carl Benjamin (Also known as Sargon of Akkad) and some friends of his sat in the front row. Benjamin is an outspoken critic of Sarkeesian, and went to her event and sat in the front row mainly to annoy her. Sarkeesian ends up saying that she "Hates to give him attention because he's a garbage human being."Throughout this event, Boogie "walks on eggshells" around Sarkeesian, hoping to not upset herMany months later, on the H3H3 podcast, Boogie talks about how Sarkeesian's intense opinions are what led to people getting killed in Charlottesville (???)Clip of him saying this can be viewed hereBoogie also ran into some controversy with his comments on gay marriage being legalized, by saying that the LGBTQ community should:Following this clip and the tweets going viral, Boogie makes comments insinuating that he is going to kill himself and his fans freak outA fan who was possibly concerned about him calls the police to check on Boogie, and Boogie gets angry about it because if he was suicidal, he could commit suicide by copClip of him saying this is hereLucy Foxx Situation (July 2018)
    Lucy Foxx is a porn actress who got into a relationship with Boogie after talking with him on an unspecified porn website. During this time, he was still going through his divorce.Video where she discusses her relationship with him is reuploaded hereSummary:Lucy says that things started out good, but quickly went downhill over the course of their relationshipDespite knowing she had to do her camming job, Boogie would guilt trip her into staying with him at his house. Due to staying with him, she had very little income and was barely scraping by.Basically, she felt like her life did not matter whatsoever to Boogie and he expected her to give herself 100% to everything going on in his life, despite them just getting into a relationshipTried to hide his relationship with her due to this divorce and his popularityGave her presents, but were seemingly hand-me-downs or stuff he had gotten for free so he wouldn't have to spend money on herBoogie would apparently scream at her to the point where she was in tears, telling her she didn't mean shit to him, and accusing her of not doing enough for himRefers to girls he has been involved with as his "hookers," which is what initially bothered Lucy enough to talk about thisBoogie apparently told her to "keep his fucking name out of her mouth" and forbid her to talk about their relationshipEven more troubling is that Lucy insinuates that Boogie is with girls even younger than her, since she is 20Proof of them being together:Fans Whiteknighting Him
    Whenever Boogie is criticized, his fans seem to instantly jump to his defense and excuse his actions, shielding him from any blameFans frequently use his past childhood abuse and anxiety as excuses for his behavior, and usually try to spin the blame on the person Boogie is emotionally manipulatingBonus Round!
    Wished his dead father a happy father's day, despite knowing his dad molested/raped his sister, and seemingly acts like an apologist towards an abuser's actionsLaughing on stream about how an ex-girlfriend who broke up with him died of lung cancer that she developed after being treated for breast cancerClip is hereLater makes a desperate attempt to backpedal on twitter 
    This topic still needs to be updated, so I'll probably try to add more/fix it up over time.

    YandereDev / EvaXephon Summary [Updated July 2018]
    YandereDev / EvaXephon
    Social Media Links:
    Twitter // Youtube // Twitch // Reddit // Tumblr // Fanfiction Profile // Official Website

    Summary
    YandereDev (Alex Mahan) is the sole developer of the indie PC game, Yandere Simulator. He rose to fame when some of the most famous Lets Players, notably PewDiePie and Markiplier, played some of the early builds of Yandere Simulator around 2014 and 2015. Following the success of the early builds of the game, YandereDev started a Patreon and began to raise money to fund its creation. Currently, he manages all PR for the game, is the sole developer, and outsources his art from volunteers and the Unity store.
    Controversy
    Part One: The Man, the Myth, the Martyr Complex
    ~ The History of EvaXephon ~
    Internet Origins
    Yandev first started out on websites like 4Chan on the /v/ board and Gaia throughout the 2000s, under the alias EvaXephonIn /v/, YanDev became infamous for annoying people and constantly spamming links to his streamsOn Gaia, YanDev was known for posting about his troubles with the opposite sex and using Gaia in a similar way to r/rateme is currently used now.Despite some denying the association between YanDev and EvaXephon, On this same account, Yandev also talked about some of the following lovely subjects: (Note: to view better, please right click and open the image in a new tab)Killing his parentsIncel-like behaviorBlaming girls rejecting him solely on his appearanceComplaining when a girl feels uncomfortable that they can't just have a normal friendshipCalling girls "egotistical" if they reject guys who are not as attractive as they areConsistently talked bad about himself and his appearance, showing he had 0 self confidenceCollection of screenshots with all of these can be found hereFinally, the infamous screenshot from Gaia asking users to rate his appearance:Indie Dev Dreams
    Throughout his time on /v/, YanDev expressed interest in becoming a video game developerInitially, YanDev wanted to make a fighting game engine and attempted to program one. However, his dreams were soon shot down by Mike Z, developer of Skullgirls who criticized his coding skillsNext, Yandev attempted to make another game. This time, it was a side-scrolling fighting game called "Lunar Scythe," featured a big tiddy goth girl as its protagonist. It wasn't received well on /v/Finally, Yandev comes up with the idea for Yandere Simulator. While this was initially well-received on /v/, his insufferable attitude drove people away from the projectOther Issues— Misogyny, Involuntary Celibacy, and Fanfiction
    Back in his Gaia days, YanDev complained that women these days are too independent and aren't like the girls in anime: Innocent, malleable, pure, and docileScreenshots of him saying this are hereDoesn't like when women have a mind of their own, or have had a sexual encounter prior to dating himWrote various fanfics about underage girls in sexual situations, frequently featuring themes of sexual slaveryDisclaimer: These were written a long time ago and many people write fanfics like this, but I still feel that it's important to mention as it's relevant to some of the stuff he's done.All Fanfics can be found hereSome choice quotes:Self-proclaimed "LA Video Games Babe Examiner"Article he wrote back in 2011:People were talking shit about his antics even back in 2011Part Two: The Yandere Simulator Development Saga
    ~ Easter Egg Simulator ~
    Patreon
    As of June 2018, YanDev currently makes over four thousand dollars on his Patreon a month for a game that has been in development for 4 years with little progress.Recently stated in this video that he views his Patreon as a tip jarEndless Updates & Easter Eggs
    YanDev frequently updates and releases builds of the game and makes monthly videos about the game's progress on his Youtube ChannelKeep in mind, the game is four years into development and is not even close to a quarter of the way doneMany of these updates are small bugfixes, or miscellaneous easter egg content added in to appeal to those streaming and making videos on the gameYanDev has frequently included copyrighted content in these easter eggs, and famous developers such as Toby Fox have asked him to remove copyrighted content from YanSim.Some popular easter eggs he has included over the years include:Attack on Titan mode, where giant naked character models walk aroundHairstyles inspired by other mediaThe aforementioned Undertale references, where he included a Sans-like model with Gaster Blasters and played Megalovania as the background musicStolen Assets
    Throughout the history of Yandere Simulator, various assets have been taken from other creators without their permissionMaster post of all stolen assets in the gameFamous examples include:Nem Esis designOriginal (Artist) / Stolen / YanDev's ResponseThe original grass texture used in the gameOriginal is by Doug ClaytonVarious MMD assets where the creators state that they are for free-use only, and should not be used to make a profitMuch of Mulberry's (Yandev's current main artist) art appears to be tracedEven if some of the stuff is only referenced and not traced, she never tells what artist she referenced to draw the picture and just seems to pass it off as her own artOverall, really unprofessional of Yandev to be using an artist who traces/heavily references other's work and passing it off as their ownMore can be read about Mulberry on her PULL thread hereEvidence under the spoiler: 
    Bad Relationship with Volunteers
    Frequently complains about volunteers, and seems to rarely be able to collaborate with anyonePast volunteers have given various accounts of bad communicationAn account from a volunteer who found out he was EvaXephonRelationship with the Fandom Throughout Development
    At the cost of his own health, YanDev valiantly continues to involve himself more than any other dev in his fandom, despite him not even liking them and calling them just "edgy teens"Unlike other developers that would probably ignore messages about the future of the game or keep quiet about it, Yandev feels that he must read and answer every single email he receives.He claims that reading all of these emails has impeded his development of the game, yet refuses to hire a secretary to help him Overall is incredibly unprofessional when interacting with fans of the games, insulting them to their faces and complaining about them in videosHelp from tinyBuild?
    In March 2017, YanDev announces that he's now partnering with TinyBuild, the game developer that developed the popular indie horror game, Hello NeighborHowever, as the months pass, YanDev keeps strangely quiet about the partnership and ignores questions from fans about how tinyBuild is helping the game.Fans questioning the status of tinyBuild and YanSim's partnership, and commenting on the fact that YanDev is being unusually quiet about it:1 // 2 // 3Finally, Yandev reveals in a Patreon post that hints that he got rid of tinyBuild because their optimized code was too hard for him to understand, wanted to give his fans constant instant-gratification, and probably wanted that sweet, sweet Youtube cash from his monthly update videos.YandereSim is a Serious, Complex, Professional Game!
    Yandev insists in many videos that he wants YanSim to be taken seriously, despite it including extremely serious content like:Big tiddy milfs strait out of the hentais, and extremely ugly male adultsBeing able to enlarge the breasts of female charactersUsing upskirt panty shots of underage girls as currencyStereotypical anime high schoolAnd ridiculous names such as...Osana Najimi幼なじみ, Literally means childhood friend in JapaneseMidori GurinLiterally means "Green Green"Kizana SunobuIn the same vein as Midori Gurin, literally means "Snob Snob"Megami SaikouLiterally means "Awesome Goddess" Asu RitoLiterally the Japanese pronunciation of "Athlete"Many other names, such as Osoro Shidesu, Muja Kina, and Mida Rana are all literal Japanese adjectives, being osoroshii desu (meaning violent), mujaki na (meaning innocence), and midara na (meaning slutty)For a full analysis of the names and suggestions for better, more accurate names, this Reddit post is very helpful.Eva frequently compares the scale and complexity of the game to games like Persona 5, Hitman, and Breath of the Wild All of these games come from fairly large development studios with a large team working on them.All of these studios kept things professional throughout their development process, unlike YanDev's constant updates and extreme involvement with his fandomMerch for an Unfinished Game, and YanSim Propagating Bad Gaming Industry Practices
    Despite the game being nowhere near complete, Yandev has a thriving merch store for the game.Merch store is found hereOverall, YanDev propagates bad practices prevalent in the indie game industry such as:The Early Access ProblemPaying for games before even knowing if the game will even be released at allMaking False Promises and Continually Pushing Back DeadlinesOverall, doing this hurts the reputation of other indie game developers and makes people less likely to support indie gamesPart Three: PR Disaster
    ~ The End of EvaXephon: Tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down ~
    RIP Discord (June 2018)
    After many months of stress and aggravation over the games development, YanDev starts to crack on DiscordWhen responding to fan questions, YanDev gives rude responses or goes on long rants calling them stupidOverall, gives incredibly unprofessional responses and just shows the extent of how bad it is that he's so involved with the fandom of the game he's creatingYanDev Responding to a Fan 1 // YanDev Responding to a Fan 2For further reading, this tumblr shows many receipts of Yandev's unprofessional interactions with fans on Discordr/Yandere_Simulator: Civil War
    YanDev makes a video talking down to his fans (once again) and basically states that "The game will come out when it comes out"Video discussing this is reuploaded hereAfter YanDev releases this video, the official subreddit loses it and YanDev supporters & haters clashFans and those who have paid him money on Patreon become disenfranchised with the lack of meaningful updates, YanDev's rudeness, and the continued pushing back of deadlines like OsanaAn r/subredditdrama post detailing the recent problems with YanSim appears, garnering 1.5k upvotesYanDev declares that the old r/Yandere_Simulator subreddit is unoffical, and creates a new one here, now called r/YandereSimulatorFun Fact 1: The most upvoted post on the new subreddit is "What can we ACTUALLY criticize?"Fun Fact 2: There is now a subreddit called r/BannedFromYanSimThe mods of r/Yandere_Simulator are understandably not happy about thisMod of r/Yandere_Simulator, MadelynNolan1995 explains the situation hereBacktracking
    On June 10th and 11th, YanDev posts multiple times on his blog attempting to distance himself from his pastSummary of posts:Instead of owning up to his past mistakes, he seems to just brush them off as him being young and edgyYanDev still displays rude and uncalled for behavior to this very day, which he also seems to ask fans to excuse him for He seems to group all the people who have minor issues with the game in the same group as those on Kiwifarms. Overall, it just seems to show how defensive he is of any type of criticism of his game, and view it as extreme hate.Finally, he expresses interest in creating an "official" subreddit for Yandere Simulator - presumably, one that he has full control over and can easily censor when the need to do so arises.As of July 2018, Yandev's blog has either been archived or deleted probably to prevent people from looking at everything he has said
    This post is mainly for documenting new stuff happening in the YanDev saga. Please discuss new developments in the discussion thread here.

    I agree, I have no issue with people writing this type of stuff. I just included it here since it's just one of the parts of Yandev's past that has been discussed before and I wanted to be thorough in including everything that has come out about him so far.

  7. mahoushojo added a post in a topic "Retired Snowflakes" category   

    The reason why we haven't done this is:
    Some "dead" snowflakes may come back or be more active, but people will not know this if they're put in a "retired" forum and thus not getting any traffic at allGoing off of this, it can be kind of hard to decide who qualifies for being a retired snowflake. While some people may seem appropriate like Johanna and Kiki, I don't think it's a good idea to just put whoever seems inactive in there. For example, Kiki was pretty dead until the lolcow sockpuppet incident and interest in her was renewed. Since that drama has died down now, there's barely any activity but I just don't want a situation where we put someone in the retired part and no one cares to check the forum because all the snowflakes in it are considered inactive. We could move them to regular snowflakes/online personalities, but it's a bit difficult dealing with the other posts in the subforum and we're not really sure what we would do with those.We also don't really want to make new subforums due to this issue of snowflakes eventually becoming inactive. While Simply Kenna would definitely qualify to have her own subforum, I don't think it would be a good idea since it can easily become inactive some day and fall into the same issues that the Johanna and Kiki subforums have currently. I might be able to look into getting a subforum that contains the most popular threads so they're easier to find, but we'll probably stay away from making entire subforums dedicated to specific people in the future.

    If you try to contact Morena, her family, or friends, you will be banned. Discussing her is fine, but please leave her family, friends, and personal information out of this. As I said a few days ago in the Yumi thread, dragging others into drama is unfair to them and not tolerated here.

  9. mahoushojo added a post in a topic Splenda Daddy   

    Just popping in to say that you can discuss Splenda's ex, just please censor her full name and face if you can. I'm not really sure how involved she is in this drama currently as I don't really check the Yumi threads, but she might not want to be involved with Yumi drama if she has moved past her relationship with Splenda. While the information is public, it only seems to be public on her personal social media account and not on a website like Youtube.
    Again, I'm not really sure of the entire situation, but I just wanted to remind people that having your full name and pictures out on a gossip website can cause issues with employers and people in your personal life. It'd be one thing if she was putting herself out there and causing drama, but if she was just found by association to Splenda, I don't really think it's fair to her.

  10. mahoushojo added a post in a topic ASMR Youtubers   

    Recently I found this post on Reddit discussing GhettoASMR, an ASMRist with arounf 60k subs, and some of the controversial stuff he's done. It seems like he tries to get people to do collabs with him for popularity, and has apparently had beef with Nite Shift, AnoASMR, RaffyTaffy, and SensorAdi. When they rejected his offer to do a collab, he called them out publicly in livestreams or commented on their videos. As people were discussing this on Reddit, he tried to WK himself in the thread and later came out saying that he was GhettoASMR.
    Honestly I can't help but wonder if he was the guy that harassed that Petrana Gala girl over the collab/nudes stuff a few weeks ago. Overall he just seems really shady and obsessed with becoming famous from other ASMRtists.

  12. mahoushojo added a post in a topic YandereDev/ Evaxephon General Thread   

    The fact that he wants to make his own "official" Yandere Simulator subreddit, despite a perfectly fine one already existing, just solidifies that he wants his subreddit to be an echo chamber with nothing but praise that he can censor when needed. Like if you go on any subreddit dedicated to a particular game, there are usually a decent amount of posts criticizing the game or an aspect of it. I mean, just look at the Fallout subreddit, which probably has more negative than positive posts right now over the direction the newest game is taking. By eliminating any type of discourse on his own "official" YanSim subreddit, it will just make him look worse.
    It's also troubling that he seems put all criticism of the game, even legitimate complaints from patrons about deadlines and the current state of it, in the same category as stuff people say on here or KiwiFarms. It's like he's equating criticisms of his game, "When is Osana coming out, it's been a long time" with accusations of pedophilia. Those two things are not on the same level at all. I can understand him being bothered by the more serious accusations about himself, but using those as a reason to discourage any criticism of the game, not him, makes no sense.
    I know I commented just yesterday, but it just bothers me how people let this guy get away with so much bullshit. He's the embodiment of the worst type of indie developer, and its people like him who make it harder to take legit indie devs seriously or trust them. Instead of his long-winded excuses, he should tell his fans he's taking a break to reflect on everything that's gone down, pause his Patreon payments, and leave social media for a few weeks. With this constant contact and obsession with updating everyone on everything, he's just digging himself deeper.

    I wish we could do this, but I don't think any of us really have the programming skill to create and implement this sort of feature. Usually when I make a topic, I make an outline, write all the bullet points out on a word document, copy/paste all the links, and then copy/paste links to images so I have everything before I make the topic. Then, I just copy and paste everything from my document onto PULL and format it correctly. If there's anything I forgot to add or want to add new stuff, it's easier to edit once it's already been posted.
    I'm sorry that there isn't really an easier way to do it, but I don't think we have the ability to implement a draft feature.

    What really amazes me is that he really doesn’t know when to shut his mouth or keep quiet. He’s way too involved in his fandom and just keeps oversharing every single minuscule detail about the game. Everything he says just seems to dig his grave deeper and deeper, and just when you think he couldn’t fuck this up more he does.
    Whereas a normal indie developer might give a text update once every other month or do beta testing with a near-complete product, YanDev’s entire development process has been plagued by bad decisions. Once the game started to become popular, he should have just stopped posting builds so frequently and focused more on improving the game mechanics. Instead, he became greedy and got tunnel vision, enjoying the instant gratification he got from releasing new builds so frequently and seeing popular Youtubers play his game. Now, that business model of frequently updating the game is really coming back to haunt him and is probably one of the biggest reasons that the game has become a failure. Instead of working with a real developer and optimizing the code to make the game better in the long run, he opted for giving his fans instant gratification and securing his monthly Patreon tip jar.
    It just amazes me how this guy can fuck all of this up so much, and make the worst decisions one could possibly make when developing a game.

    Just dropping a link to this reddit post on r/subredditdrama. If any of you guys have a reddit account, you should try to upvote it so it gets more attention as this is a pretty visible subreddit for drama.
    I really hope Yandev’s delusional fans start waking up after this, and he gets a lot more backlash. It seems that his community is finally taking notice of his shitty attitude towards his fans and the abysmal progress of the game. It’s just a shame that it’s taken Yandev explicitly stating that he’s going to postpone the game after subtly postponing it so many times for people to start getting angry about it.

    Hey guys, Nyx posted this in the other thread inquiring about this, but I just wanted to make it clear that none of the mods were sent a message that this thread was deleted. None of us had any idea this happened until I came across this thread a few hours ago and told the other mods about it. Nyx will be restoring the thread as soon as possible, as it was probably deleted by accident since there is a lot of traffic on that thread and one of the mods possibly made a mistake when approving a new post. If we were @'d over the last few days, we probably did not see these as we get hundreds of notifications a day to approve new posts and go over reports. The only notification that is separate and stands out is if we are sent a private message.
    It just gets incredibly frustrating when the first conclusion people jump to when a thread disappears is that Nyx and the other mods are censoring the forum. Hopefully the thread will be able to be restored in the next day or two. The only other time a situation like this has happened was with the Emiru thread, which Rhea, one of the mods, publicly apologized for accidentally deleting when approving posts. Within a day or two after the mods found out what happened, the thread was restored. Sorry if I'm coming off as annoying, but it's extremely frustrating seeing people jumping to these kinds of conclusions over a mistake. Joji is a huge public figure and removing his thread would be ridiculous.

    I'm making an exception for Lil Tay just because she's already so in the spotlight right now and I feel this discussion is less about her and more about her family. I very much discourage people from criticizing Lil Tay's looks/actions though, and hope for the discussion to be about the problematic actions of her brother and mother.

  20. mahoushojo added a post in a topic ASMR Youtubers   

    Saw this video recently, and wanted to post it here to see what everyone else thought of it:
    I'm not really surprised if more harassment has been going on in this community, since there has been stuff before with ER making disparaging comments towards Gentle Whispering and other ASMRtists. I kind of wish she would name who this person is, as this kind of behavior is not acceptable and others should probably be made aware of it so they know to be careful around this person. 
     
    On another note, on the recent stuff about GibiASMR, I actually know some people who have gone to that school as I used to live near there. I can verify that it's very expensive and one of the more higher-end high schools in the area, though not in the "highest" tier of expensive schools you could go to. She could have gotten a scholarship, as they do give out full scholarships to probably one or two people in the grade and award some financial aid, but since so few people get it I don't think it's likely. I'll have to ask my friend who went there if she knew her haha
    While I don't have a problem with her going to this school, I do have an issue with her lying about her financial status. I don't really watch Gibi's content so I'm not 100% informed on what she has actually said regarding her personal life/finances, but it's problematic if she is actually lying. She really shouldn't be pretending to have been poor/or struggled in an effort to seem more sympathetic to her subscribers, if she is doing this.

    It just makes me cringe whenever Johnson tries to latch onto one of Felix's tweets or name-drops him 
    Like he's trying so hard to be relevant and it just makes him look desperate. It's as if every time he responds to Felix's tweets he's actually saying  "HEY FELIX, REMEMBER ME, YOUR GOOD FRIEND THE ANIME MAN?!?! LOOK EVERYONE, WE'RE FRIENDS, WE KNOW EACH OTHER, SEE!!?!"
    At this point it's just so pathetic it's hard to watch. I probably wouldn't be cringing this hard if this only happened once or twice, but the way he wears Felix's having followed him and having collaborated with him as a badge of honor like he's better because of it is just obnoxious. Aki can still be cringy but Johnson is just in a whole other league.

    At first I thought it was kind of odd that Akaadian left Anisa alone on their last night at Twitch con, but I think if he had to catch a plane to get home he would have had to have left Anisa there. Of course it could have been something else, but that's really the only thing I could think of as to why he couldn't have been there with her. Anisa could have been planning this with Ian for a while, and purposely booked another night so she could be with him. This is all just speculation though and there isn't really any way to know what happened unless someone involved said something.
    Overall it's just really shady and to me she just seems to cling to whoever she can for popularity, like how she jumped on titty streaming because it's an easy way to get views. I think a lot of people don't want to cover this drama because they're scared of iDubbbz and don't want to face his backlash. I hope someone covers it, but the longer nothing happens the sooner this will fade into obscurity and everyone will forget about it.

  24. mahoushojo added a post in a topic Logan Paul   

    I think my biggest issue with the apologies are that two apologies had to be made. The initial one had a much different tone and was very defensive about his actions. Much of his response was focused on his own feelings about the situation, and barely talked about the victim. Then, he had to end it with emojis and #logang, which instantly removed any sincerity from it.
    In the second video, while Logan does seem remorseful for his actions, I think it’s important to remember that Logan is an actor. It’s his job to play a character in front of the camera. If he’s not faking it, I think he’s much more upset at the prospect of possibly losing his career and from receiving such bad backlash from even the mainstream media.
    Deep down, I don’t think he’s upset for the person who died at all since he’s displayed narcissistic behavior in the past. When he found the body, he didn’t even treat it like a human. It was just material for the video and something to gawk at. The next day, he proceeded normally with the next video like nothing had even happened.
    Honestly though, I don’t think anything bad will happen to Logan over this. People in Japan rarely sue, since most people’s attitude is “しょうがない” and overall too troublesome. He’s also Youtube’s golden boy and making them the most cash, so I doubt they’ll do anything about it. Unfortunately, this stuff blows over and in a few weeks from now nobody will be talking about it.

    This was probably one of the most disgusting things I've seen on Youtube in a long time. I caught the original upload, and the whole video is just filled with Logan being disrespectful. You don't need to spend minutes in a video showcasing a dead body and making the body the thumbnail to raise awareness about suicide and depression. It was extremely distasteful and just looked like he wanted to profit off of "finding a body." If he had just cut the entire part where he showed the body and just discussed what had happened after, the video could have been better. But instead, he had to show him and his friends giggling while zooming in on a dead body for at least three minutes. It especially worries me that his main audience are children and preteens, and them thinking it's okay to behave this way in this situation.
    also lowkey mad that he was sitting right in the middle of the stairs down to the train station and inconveniencing people as they walked down the stairs all so he could give his speech on depression
    Before it was taken down, this was the thumbnail (tw, shows the body):
