    • 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.
    • Reputation Has Increased!   07/06/20

      Hello. You have been asking for it and it is finally here. We have increased the number of reputation given in a day from 25 to 50. We will see how well 50 works out and if that is enough. Please continue to provide feedback and we will reevaluate as needed. This change has been added to the site changes thread located here. Happy repping. Thank you.

Sorry, I should have been more clear~ I just meant that she probably is into the same things teens are because she is still pretty close to being a teen. :alpacadone: 

I agree that her infant aesthetic is incredibly disturbing and inappropriate. She tries to say "crybaby is a character" as if dressing up as this character is okay. I would have been fine with her dressing up as a kid and being an infant "crybaby" character if she didn't sexualize it. Tumblr already has enough of an issue with fetishizing underage prepubescent children.

 

It like Lolita but not the fashion more of the pedofilia  Vladimir Nabokov aspest of it.

I don't get her. Her music is so basic and tbh Lana del ray music is way better than hers.  IDK i tried watching a few vids of hers but..she just falls flat to me.

Basically, everything that shouldn't be paired with lolita, Melanie pairs with lolita. I feel so sorry for the girls in that comm, I can only imagine what shit her fans are putting in lolita tags right now. Not to mention the extra shit they are getting thanks to the connotation of the name is now being paired with all of the stuff from Melanie's music videos.

 

It wasn't until I was working today and overheard the full album that I realized how alike the songs on the album are to one another. I barely noticed when songs changed (then again I wasn't paying much attention to the music) but it all had the same pace / general feeling. I know she has an entire story behind the album but couldn't she change it up like most artists? I hope if she puts out another album it varies a bit more.

Random but I hate how much her fans baby her.

They treat her like she's 5 years old or something, and needs protection from the big scary haters. When she's a full grown woman who obviously has a personality that doesn't quite fit with her aesthetic, swears and has little hissy fits like that at concerts. Not saying it's bad to have a bit of personality but people gotta realize just because she's 'short' (not even that short mind you) it doesn't make her a baby. I also hate how she just goes along with it for the ride instead of correcting people. She's old enough to know her actions and such.

Her fans are super serious on Youtube anytime someone posts a video about a concert. I remember watching a video where a fan was talking about her experience about going to a concert where she embarrassed herself by harassing a band mate for the set list. People in the comments were unleashing things like "Oh it's so rude to interrupt her like that even if she wasn't singing, blah blah blah." It was different from the interruption posted here. Then again, it was Youtube.

I've learned to not say a damn thing about her on tumblr too.

During the past few years I've been a huuuuuuuge fan of Melanie, but the recent way she's been treating her fans makes me iffy. Like when she was eplaining her song Mrs Potato Head and someone shouted "I love you" and she was like "Excuse me, I'm talked, whatever just go to the next song" and when fans were meeting her and they started to take pictures without asking and she was like "taking pictures without consent is kinda weird guys" and walked away.

Like I get it, she IS human and the fact she has social anxiety worsens the situation but she does have to understand when fans are in the presence of their idol people lose some of their senses. And it's kinda common for people to be able to take pictures with their idol so I'm ??? about th situation there.

But her music is amazing, that's why I'm such a big fan.

My thing is i get you want to be a star and all but there are other ways you can be famous without having to be seen by millions of people. EXPECIALLY if you have social anxiety that make it hard for you to deal with people thus making it really akward and making you treat the people who enjoy your music like shit! she is only makin it hard on herself.

THAT IS WHAT SHE REMINDS ME OF. the whole things about her aesthetic creeps me out because it seems like it is derived from the actual definition of 'lolita'. personally i think that Melanie is extremely overrated. her music is okay-ish but he aesthetic reminds me of those tumblr girls who think that they are so unique because they wear some sort of j-fashion or dye their hair or something. i wear jfashion almost everyday ranging from lolita to fairy kei to random substyles, and I HATE IT when people compare me to her or tell me that i remind them of her. i realize that it is a compliment and im not rude about it. but it just makes me cringe. it just makes me slightly angry when people see her as a super original person when she is not.

She's got a lot of great songs and a nice voice. I'm not a huge fan of the whole baby aesthetic that she has going for herself but to each their own.

Her fans are pretty annoying though, but most of them are teenagers so it's inevitable.

To add what i said she also has a nymphette vibe to her and yeah.... nope overall not good for youger fans.

Gosh, her fanbase are so annoying. Yet I guess most famous people's fanbases are annoying, especially youtubers. I could watch an entire show and maybe the word "soap" or "crybaby" pops up and there are like 876986797 comments of twelve year old girls going;

"OMG mELAniE MARTINEZz!!!"

"LikE IF u GOT THE SOAP REFERENCE!!!1!1!"

=_=

Has anyone else seen the video where she yelled at a fan because she didnt like her costume, cried for like a good ten minutes of a fan meet in a baby crib, and then poured milk all over this one person's lactose intolerant friend??? I skimmed through the thread so I wasn't sure, but she doesn't seem very nice. 

I've never heard her music, I kind of think it's that sort of edgy tumblr vibe and whatnot usually music like that isnt really for me y'aknow. I'm on the whole oversexualising the baby aesthetic side of this because that...just comes off as a no to me a little bit for personal reasons...

I think overall, Melanie is still inexperienced. She had never been on stage before the voice and she's still learning how to deal with people. Btw, I don't think she handles criticism well

On one episode of the Voice, she was crying because of not doing well and Adam giving her constructive criticism.

Idk if she really did yell at a fan about the way she dresses. I would need to see video footage of her doing that, if there isn't any then it never happened... Also, if it did, She needs to understand that not everyone has the same 'taste' in fashion as her. 

The guy in the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmizSsCSBqg) is obviously lying and made that video to get attention. Melanie probably 'sprinkled' milk on a few people in her concerts, but she could come up with better ways of interacting with her fans. The tumbresque aesthetic is sure to get a large and loyal fanbase. We all have our opinions, but it won't change what she is doing even if we don't like it.
