First Impressions: Judging a Book by It's Cover?

Okay, so everyone has recently seen the pop reel blog about unknown users, and why they don't have as many subscribers as others do. But... what exactly makes one popular on PMC?

This question might be pretty obvious to some-- get pop reel, have over 100 subscribers, people asking you to join their servers, getting interviews, etc. But I'm talking when you've JUST joined the site, you're Level 1, you have no subscribers, and no posts. Some might say you can tell just from the first thing someone posts whether they might be the next Paril, or next MissMarifire, or Daddy_Yankee14. Others, including me however, can tell as someone continues posting. You keep track over the person, look at what they post. At first, someone might post really crappy, unshaded skins with no effort at all. But, lets say that after a month on the website, they're posting super detailed, amazing skins. It's all about improvement. But what about the people who judge someone from the first thing they post?

Well, that's simple. They simply forget about the Level 1 member, and move on to someone else who's already posting awesome skins, blogs, etc. You might not notice, but that could mean the difference between the member getting dissapointed, posting less often, and eventually quitting altogether. I'm not saying this what will happen every time, but it could, and can. This happens to more people than you think. They post horrible skins, but after a while they start posting pop reel potential skins and noone notices because they didn't even give them a chance in the first place. That is basically how unnoticed skinners/bloggers/whatevers are created. For them, as hard as they try, noone bothers to give them a second glance. Who knows, that member you just saw with the crappy skins, could become the next great skinner with improvement, and nobody even lifts a finger to give their skins a view.

So now leads to the point of my blog-- Whenever you see someone with horrible skins, and horrible blogs, instead of just finding some awesome skinner to look at, take a bit of time to leave a helpful comment or a diamond. If you can do that, then maybe one day, when they've grown into a Level 32 member with 320 subscribers, they just might return the favor to you.



Thanks for reading! But.. I wanted to dedicate this blog to SnowyLOLz an awesome, unnoticed skinner who is good friends with me. All I have to say to him, is to keep trying. Because no matter what happens, you have to keep trying your best. I know one day you'll be at the top, but until then, never, ever tell yourself your horrible or worthless at what you do. Because your not, at least to me and your friends. c:

Welp, that's all.

I have been thinking about this stuff a lot lately. People who make pop reel with every skin could make the crappiest skin ever, but they would still get diamonds for it simply because they are the ones that made it (Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating, but you know what I mean). And yet, people who are constantly improving and post wonderful skins don't get noticed. Popularity just doesn't work quite right.

I was very unnoticed, and people quit on me. I'm still not very notice considering a lot of my subs are no longer on PMC, but, if the people gave me a second chance in the beginning and didn't unsub me I would most likely have about 70 more subs than I do now. They like, just subbed me for a day. I have a bunch of people that subbed me from the beginning, like the Nova Skins guy and a few others, and sometimes I still can't believe they stayed through all my crappy work. :P

THE TRUTH HAS BEEN SPOKEN!
I couldn't of said it better, people need to support others no matter wut level they are.
Even if they are bad, they still need people to help them go, and improve.
Good job, you deserve a diamond.

To be honest I think Daisy Rose's Cyberbullying poem kinda fits this because I know theres probably few but, some high levels like to bully low levels and most people judge a new person by their first post.. not very cool at all.. It affects the person who they are bullying/judging and makes that person just.. wanna fade away out of history.

"The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark."
-Barbara Hall

It doesn't matter if you do or don't become popular. What matters the most is that we have tried. Maybe, just maybe, we can find our way back to the road we desire. Maybe, just maybe, if we try, we can succeed. To all people wishing to be popular, let this be a lesson. Give up, and you might never have that chance again. Always keep trying, and one day you will get there. :)

Beautifully spoken. Back when I first joined PMC, I had almost quit because I was barely getting any attention. Now, I have over 200 subscribers after I started posting blogs. c:

This is beautiful, very interesting. You GO GURL! It touches my heart when the truth comes... Because I am new too, and everyone dont seem to diamond, or etc.. I dont think they enjoy my things because they judge me, and I dont seem to like it. But I give diamond to you! in the chat, people were like, "If a level 1 person comes in, what would you do?' And the other dude was like, "Uhh duh! Try and kick them, because they ARE soo NOOB. LOL.' other dude, "Me too! LOL, LOL, LOL" :) I appreciate u FOR EVA

It's a shame. They just don't realize how everyone was once Level 1. I know new members that the post skin they post, it's beautiful.
They just think because they have such a high level, they're perfect.
I wish you all the luck!

Let me quote someone who i recently I came into a little argument with. ''Why would I listen to a level 1?'' mainly because the person was level 10 i think, They really wanted to be popular so much they were saying ''Oh my skins are the best sub me!'' I think they might have blocked me so I cant really copy paste the things, but yeah, My comment was basically : ''Personally, i do not really like your work. It has quite bad shading, try following a guide'' to which they replied ''why would i listen to a level 1 of course'' so people judge books by their cover alot. Personally, I do not care if I am popular, I love making skins that's the thing that doesn't seem to be by the lower levels, for them it's all about getting noticed...

Yes, but it's always nice getting a compliement or a diamond from someone, so you know other people like your work too. If they don't, they could always leave some helpful advice. If you don't get any of that.. you're kinda stuck.

Derpy, Thank you for writing this! I think great skinners and even average ones like me can Relate to this full heartedly I know I do. Im always On the look out for Skinners, Builders and Bloggers that are about to quit and Im always messaging them trying to tell them to stay or sharing my story with them in hopes of making them rethink what they're about to do. It makes me Very Very sad seeing people give up just because no one will take the time to look at there stuff.

I support this, and TOTALLY get what you mean. So, someone could be not so good at something, no one thinks they'll ever be anything, so they just down-right, GIVE UP on them. But then, they become better, but no one notices, even though they're giving it their all. So, what I understand from this, is that, the most amazing things can happen if you just wait a while! Great blog with an inspiring message, Derpy! You get a diamond! <3
