    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

    Yea I find it really weird that girl group stans paint cute concepts as like inherently oppressive and girl crush concepts as "empowering" when in the end of the day both ideas and made for and by men in a shitty music system. I think part of it is that its kinda a trend for people to have a "deeper" reason for their fave group like "theyre feminist! they champion lgbt lgbt rights!" when its totally valid to just enjoy a group because you like their vibes and music with nothing deeper

    I think the #1 thing thats negativity affecting kpop right now is the influence fan culture has over the music. Kpop entertainers cant sample each other or cover each other or even collaborate that much which leads to the music being self contained and frankly boring since no one references each other like other music genres do? And a lot of it is based on how fans are so stuck in their heads of their faves being the "only talent" or the "first to do something" that the few time groups sample something and happens to be the same, fans lose their shit and accusing both of copying? Makes the new music so fucking boring to me tbh because nothing New can be created like this so everything just goes through cycles

     i really hope that essay is a rough draft because thats looking pretty rough.... and also being a college student ive lost a Lot of motivation to do work and write essays, but that still doesnt excuse yourself from not doing them? especially since shes in a lot better position than many people i know who are stuck at home with shitty family/work jobs/take care of siblings? like, at least get everything done with so you dont have to deal with it anymore. like i know shes trying to be relatable since a lot of students are going through the same loss of motivation but saying that combined with her privilege in going outside and having a pretty easy life is tone deaf
    Also like, did she watch parasite?? does she realize that shes more like the rich family than the poor family in it??? im just curious how she got that first part in her definition of capitalism and somehow links that to parasite

    i understand bts is the most popular group right now and theyll be given more time because of that but broadcasting companies cant expect to give them over 20 minutes to perform at festivals and give other groups 1 song or cut their one song short (apink? mamamoo?) and not have fans of the other groups feel some type of way about it. like of course its amazing if youre an army but many older groups, especially older girl groups, are getting the short end of the stick

    I think a lot of that comes from fans living through their their faves success. If your fave gets the top selling album or is voted as the top group from fan votes, you can claim ownership of that win. When you stream a song and it gets to the top yea you congratulate the artist but your also congratulating yourself as a fan. Thats why an award like the grammys which takes things like fans out of the equations is so angering to fans because they cant claim part of the process. Of course the grammys arent perfect (I personally disagree with a lot of the categories this year) but I far prefer it than the fan pressure of buying albums and voting non stop so our faves can win
    Bts is weird for me because I listened to all of their albums for a friend since shes a huge fan and it feels like theyve worked backwards in terms of music? Theyve improved in their personal skills and as a group but have taken a step back conceptually. Like their music doesn't sound experimental and doesnt match the complexity that they clearly can do and have done

    The Grammys not nominating bts or blackpink isnt "xenophobic", both groups barely have any presence in the us. I think people have a huge inflation of how well known those two groups are in the none kpop sphere and dont realize how niche kpop is in the us.

    i dont understand how shes currently going to an art school (a top tier one at that) and has such a poor knowledge of referencing, or maybe she doesnt care idk. most artists reference photos for poses so you can get things anatomically correct but you have to significantly change the details to make it your own. it shouldnt be that someone can look at your art and know immediately what the reference photo was unless the pose is very unique or you are practicing which in that case you should be honest about it and note that. but shes not only doing that but trying to copy other peoples art styles which is why her art is so inconsistent because its very clear that her own art style isnt like that. its so sad because if she actually applied herself to her own art and stopped copying what other art students/graduates from risd were doing, she could actually achieve her goal of being unique.

    Does anyone remember olivya nora? she and mei used to be best friends and make a bunch of videos together. I wonder what happened to them? If they still are friends I think it would be cute if they made a video now since their styles are so different. It seems like olivya has found what she likes and is really comfortable with what shes doing with rn and mei seems to be struggling to do so

    thats a straight up lie when there are thousands of colothing companies today that make sustainable clothes. she could have easily collaborated with everlane for her video, I brand which I think she herself has talked about in the past? she could have done something really cool like make outfits from everlane and then recreate the outfits with thrifted pieces. but she did a collab with Amazon of all places like?
    I hate how her fans are also trying to justify it with how "everyone else shops at Amazon" when theres a huge difference between the average person getting things on Amazon and a rich influencer with more than 2 million subscribers influencing her fans to buy from them

    I literally just watched the tiffany ferg video about relatability before I came in her and saw the video. checking the comments it seems like most of the highly liked comments are people pointing our her privilege or how upset are with this partnership. I see a lot of people now questioning her finances since she has openly talked about moving to nyc and london and are questioning her relatability and if shes been trying to sell them things. it also shows how out of touch she is if she really thought her audience would forget that shes positioned herself as "woke" when Amazon is literally one of the most controversial companies right now

    yea I don’t disagree with you. I was speaking more from my personal experience, social pressure is a thing college and can easy fuck your over if you don’t stand up for yourself. But yea its still your personal responsability to get your stuff done or you’re just gonna be in a world of hurt. It seems like she just doesn’t care that much about being in college rn.
    Also what do we know of her living experience? I’ve honestly been assuming that her parents have been paying her rent because she doesn’t have a job and I don’t think she makes enough from YouTube to pay rent. She jokes about being broke but going out a lot, especially in nyc, is very expensive. Getting tattoos and piercings are also expensive too.

    I mean it is Halloween. yea the logical thing for her to do would be to not party and do work but every college student parties on Halloween, it just happened to be a Thursday this year
    honestly I kinda feel bad for her? it seems like shes doesnt quite get that you dont need to constantly go with your friends. or maybe she just doesnt have friends that prioritize that stuff. like you can stay in with friends, hang out, do work, and still have a good time. maybe she thinks that wouldnt be good content? but I personally preferred when she posted about studying than her going out all the time

    I can kinda answer that. I think thats due to a Japanese interview he gave that some translated to say that he was interested in both men and women. Later it came out that the interview was mistranslated and he later said he wasnt attracted to dudes. Also Sunmi had a concert where there was a video from it that seemed like she was coming out, but later on her twitter said she wasnt and was speaking in support her LGBT fans. In reality the only gay kpop idol right now is Holland, and he's essentially an independent artist because many people in the industry dont want to work with him because of his sexuality. He's also talked about the immense bulling he went through by other idols in the industry when he was still in school. So while there's a very high chance that there's lgbt kpop idols in the closet rn, we arent going to know until far after their careers are over because the risk is too high.

    this whole thread has been very enlightening and disappointing...i was happy when her style got grungier because i thought she had stopped copying catcreature and finally grew into her own individual style...only to learn that this new style was being copied too. also the queerbaiting leaves a bad taste in my mouth. jasmine reminds me of the people that me and my friends would joke about, "artsy" girls who hint and joke that theyre queer because its "fun" and then get offended when people question them about it. pisses me off because i know people are dirt poor because they got disowned for being queer : /
