As long as there is success, there would always be failure. This phenomenon exists everywhere, even in PMC. There are hackers, duplicators, trollers, flamers....so many that we cannot count with our fingers. Some people would upload their stuff and would hit the popular-reel and become successful, while others would have their submissions stuck at 1 diamond 0 views 0 downloads 0 comments and 0 favorites. Even those people who made pretty good skins would sometimes be ignored, and fall deep into the inexcapable abyss.

Well, there are some ways "they" say it would help. For example, using the PMC chat, or making high quality submissions. But still, there are problems. Say, the PMC chat. It is indeed very helpful for getting views and diamonds. But then, think. There are about 50 people in the chat talking about random stuff, and you post your link up there. What's the chance of them looking at your submission? Very low. Everyone's "ignore" mode is turned on while on the PMC chat. Some will argue that you should use the chat often so you would be recognized by other chat members. Well, to be popular and recognized, don't you need to be in a pretty decent or high level? And to get to that high level, don't you need people to help you? Quality work isn't everything here, where recognition, level, and popularity plays a big role to your big success, and some people are having hard times struggling to get out of the loner madness.

As you attain power, you gain arrogance. "And arrogance can sometimes be a big problem." (Hunger Games). Now for the high levels, how many times have you ignored the low levels, in all honesty? Whenever I have tried to communicate with high level players, I was more than often ignored. Once you gain power, you would want even more power. You will never look down back to where you started from. As this is part of human nature, there is nothing much we can do about it. And when a low level posts something good, some would suspect and despise the post from jealousy. This doesn't mean we should abolish the leveling system. It's just that I hope people have a change of heart and take a look at others' posts. Good people are to be recognized. Bad people are to improve. And now lets' see some of the dark things that happened in PMC.

1. A member named JesuiticalSucks. WoW. Jesuitical's foe. A seed of hatred.

2. Multiple account users. Serious? Just for more views and diamonds? You will never become successful like that.

3. Doubters
"I think I seen a similar skin to this before."
"I had a red timer in my blog and got a lot of views. Did you copy me?"
"You copied my pants design!"

There is a lot more, but these are just a few REAL examples that you could often see.
So the point of this post is simple. Remove the dark side. It's almost impossible but by writing this blog I hope some people do some of these following:
  • Help of out new members [Moderators aren't always available! They have a life.]
  • Go to Recently Uploaded posts and take a look at theirs and give them feedback!
  • Don't diamond for diamond, sub for sub or go beg for diamonds.
  • When someone posts a link on PMC chat, please take a look at theirs. [Don't ignore people!]
  • Don't comment if you want to troll, or to write doubts. Use it to help them improve, or to comment on what you like or dislike about it.
  • Follow the rules, read all the rules carefully.
  • Make sure you put all your best on every single posts of yours.

Please comment below if you want me to add anymore things to remove the dark side!
Make sure you Diamond this blog if you liked it.
Please also comment if you have any opinions about this.
I know this may seem dark and pessimistic, but this isn't a problem that should be ignored!
This was also made as an application to get into Infini Garde. I hope you guys like it!

Sir, you already had my sub, and now you got another diamond. I must say, I completely agree with you.

Although, I must say I found some high lvls i messaged to be pretty friendly (Niko, for example).

I would love to say I only make skins for fun, but to be completely honest I'd love to get a bit more popular, but i do see my lack of skill, when i compare myself to some of the great skinners of PMC.
Hopefully tho, sooner or later my effort in learning and getting better will be rewarded.

Thank you for this blog, it's a great encouragement.

This a really good blog, glad it's getting some notices by people. I hope you do more stuff like this. I've recently been looking at a couple post from people, and instead of complementing on a basically standard post I'm now engaging into helping them build better projects. To the point where they help me basically.

Thanks :)
