    • 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.

How many videos has Sharla done on Korean cafes or cafes in general?

I'm confused why she thought that was so complicated (obviously aside from the fact that she doesn't speak Korean, but her friend did it for her entirely anyway). Where I'm from in the U.S. it's standard for boba shops to ask for sweetness level, ice level, and what toppings you want. That's just... how boba works...

Maybe a unpopular opinion. But in my opinion there's nothing wrong with liking mainly the pop culture side of a country, that doen't make your interest any less genuine than people who are interested in historical buildings or museums.  but... At least do something INTERESTING with it. Mix it up a little, and stfu about Pokémon for one video, come on! your interests can't be THAT limited. Talk about the Otaku culture, the very obsessive ones that go into hikikomori the casual ones, the 'shaming' that can come along with it, the history of it. Current subculture fashion trends, favorite and or upcoming video games/music/anime,Interesthing/rare gadgets, internet trends/scandals. Even her interest in pop culture is soooo limited, how many videos can you make about Pokémon? I know she once said she used to play saxophone. That would've made a interesthing side of her channel, Q&A about music the saxophone, beginner tips, tutorials/covers, just a story about how you got interested in it. So sad she lacks any sort of passion. 

 

I think this is a great idea as well, but Sharla strikes me as someone who thinks otaku culture is gross. Nakano Broadway is as far as she went because it's cheap and you get a lot of Pokemon shit there. Did she ever go to Akihabara? Ikebukuro? Why did she never visit themed cafés in Tokyo?

But yeah, she does lack any kind of passion and I think she's only into Pokemon for so long already because it's easily available all over the world. She'd never be interested in any other anime because that means effort only to watch it. And now she's not in Japan anymore anyway, so she's gonna drop everything Japanese that's not available in Korea like a hot potato.

Same thing in Canada (Vancouver at least), all the bubble tea (we call it bubble tea in Vancouver) shops have those options when ordering. Very few stores I know don't have such options but they are usually independent stores: they aren't big named stores from Taiwan.

I find that interesting since I consider Pokemon part of Otaku culture but then again Pokemon is aimed at kids and has less die-hard fans so that might be it. I'm surprised she never bothered going to Ikebukuro since it's really nice there and less male-dominated compared to Akihabara imo. She's simply lazy and if she plans on dropping everything Japanese while she's in Korea I feel like her content will be even more boring cuz it seems she doesn't know much about Korea or what it has to offer.

Sharla gives me the impression that she's the type of person that could make any country seem boring

She probably did go to Ikebukuro in some of her videos (I remember something about a matsuri they randomly walked into there), but she never showed the otaku aspect of it. At least not that I'd remember, the only thing that stuck to me is Nakano because she kept going there constantly (and personally I really didn't like it there). The thing is, she always said that there's nothing to do in Japan for her anymore after ten years but that's such a bullshit excuse for being lazy.

Maybe I'm the only broken ass student here?  Why nobody is wondering how she affords going to every café out there every day? But hey, she doesn't have money to travel lol

Every beverage costs around 5 dollars, if I did like her I would have no money to eat now

Sharla just commented this on Taylor's new video. I'm not sure if it's:

a) just plain hypocritical; 

b) low-key admitting she's only collaborating with certain vloggers for views/popularity boost;

c) being delusional enough to think nobody notices she's only collaborating with certain vloggers for views/popularity boost;

d) all of the above  

:alpacaheadshake:

What a strange comment, especially from Sharla (who often has one other youtuber in her own vids). Is she jealous of Taylor's popularity and trying to lowkey sabotage her growth by keeping her from collaborating from other youtubers?

What gave it away? :haiplz:

A new thing on the list it seems: Pokémon, cats, tea, G-Dragon and Korean cafes. 

(OT: autocorrect tried to turn that into G-wagon lol. The Patreon would have to do very well for that.)

I actually thought the deco phone case cafe from the other day was kinda cool. If it was a unique cafe like that maybe once a week or something I wouldn't mind so much.... honestly with how much she seems to love them, she could probably make a series of it. Like 'Cafe of the week'. Then we'd know when to expect it instead of expecting it with every single video and unsubbing instead. :P

Sharla easily could designate one day of the week to introduce interesting cafés on. Something like "Café Tuesday" and then she makes a proper ten minutes video about one single café, showing what's special about it, the interior, the menu, a short review of how she liked it and maybe the area around it if she can't fill the ten minutes. That actually would be interesting and nice though, so I doubt she'd ever do something like that.

Yes it's a struggle which should tell you there are other more popular drinks amoung Koreans to order. How about you make a video on popular foods amoung Koreans maybe you might dubunk the myths surrounding foods Koreans eat since I know there are assumptions that all Koreans like certain foods which they might not due to kdrama and kpop. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

OT but aren't there like, staple household faves? Like a certain food that close to everyone in a country has?
On topic: We have some of that here so it would be fun to see that being debunked. Would be quite an interesting series but then again.. That would require minimum effort and that's not exactly Sharlas gig.

Wait a second Sharla did go to Ikebukuro one time. She went to the Kit Kat Chocolatory with Miranda.

As I've already said, I do remember her walking into a random matsuri in Ikebukuro too. I think. But I meant more in the sense of otaku culture anyway.

Oh Thats true I never seen her even mention anything Anime related outside Pokemon. Although she did go with Shine a few times before to some Anime store in Akihabara
