Now, this is kind of like unrecognized people, but this is more like how they feel.

Firstly, I get how popular players get diamonds, subs, etc.It's because they are popular and "Good" at their talent, I am not saying their not. Some are good enough to get a decent amount of diamonds. I am mostly talking about the players who do absolutely NOTHING and get 100 diamond 20+ Subs and heeps of comments saying "omg dis is so good, u should b a artist." They are getting alot of credit for just posting a un-shaded skin and a blog with a question.

People who aren't recognized do 5x as much work making sure their creation is perfect, and it usually is. But when they check the next day they see "1 diamond, No comments, 2 views" when they tried there hardest! These players try so hard to do everything they can and get nothing. And even sometimes, the unrecognized player makes an awesome skin, but then the popular player gets the credit and you start getting "You copied ____ I'll report you now"
When they just made a skin which was their own!

When you see your post getting 1 diamond it is heartbreaking and brings your confidence down. And when all of these wonderful artists leave, Planetminecraft wouldn't be very good anymore, it would still be popular but it wouldn't have that touch with those players that create this community! Everyone helps make what Planetminecraft is Today! Those players feel worthless and they should just leave. I have been through this. I wrote a story, got absolutely nothing. Not even a comment. But when a popular player makes a less detailed blog their story goes to the top of the charts!

Next time you see an awesome, detailed artwork you should take action and 'try' to say that their work was good! It may not brighten up anyone elses day but your sure doing something to that player! And YES Please express your feelings in the comments!

i'd like to agree with you and disagree if that's ok XD. Firstly, I like how you say that members should let other members know when they think a submission is good, and also that putting somebody down is not acceptable. But, i'd like to point out that everyone was once that unnoticed member. Everyone started at the bottom, even the popular members. The popular members have been around for a long time working hard to get their submissions noticed, and ultimately it is these people who have the 'staying power' who become popular. I hope you see where i'm coming from :)

To everyone in the comments: Try harder, make it a point to advertise what you have made in chat without being annoying. Don't ask for diamonds, ask for feedback. With feedback you become better and eventually when you improve you will finally get the fame you deserve.

This is so true. I hate it when I try to put maximum effort in something, only 5 or 4 diamonds. Actually, I once made a project, that got only 6 diamonds (I hoped for a lot more) and then another noob copied it, posted it and got 17 diamonds! How unfair was that!

It's also unfair that people only download stuff if it's or way to big or it's from someone like hypixel or disco_. I bet hypixel could upload a dirt house and still get 100 diamonds :3

I don't think it's right that people have to go to the chat, etc. and spam links to get any attention for their builds.

Thank you googles. This is EXACTLY how I feel sometimes. Some skins on the pop reel are very good, but some are just the same stuff from the same people all the time. It's hard making your own skins when people only look at the famous people's skins and not others'.

This is an issue of what constitutes as "good". People don't click on a post because someone is thinking "Omg this looks like they worked really hard on this and it probably took forever" No, that's not what people do. People look at things because they might find it interesting, no matter how much time someone put into it. For example, I see plenty of skins on the Pop Reel every day, but I don't look at everyone of them because I'm just not interested. Some of them even look outstanding. It's not about the quality necessarily, it's about appealing to the interests of the public. Like this blog for example: it appeals to the public because several people just want xp and they want to be popular so they're glad that someone else feels their pain.

No, this is completely wrong. Just because we are popular members doesn't mean we put less work into our skins, blogs, etc. Nothing is 100% perfect, and usually the members who aren't popular are starting out, or learning. I don't appreciate this blog, basically bashing popular members for having more views.

And this is normal in skins, only the good shader and idea machine get the diamonds and downloads.

You may have seen my SwatCraft texturepack. When it had 4k downloads and 2 diamonds. I just said: If you like this give diamond. And now got 10 diamonds ( It's much, but I care about downloads more than diamonds. )

"People who aren't recognized do 5x as much work making sure their creation is perfect,"

You're asserting something that you can't back up.

I think he generally means those who do deserve to have those places but don't get enough recognition. I put more work than I would if I were popular. I noticed a lot of popular people just give up making the same quality content as when the first got big.

Rank has nothing to do with it. Youtube has nothing to do with it. It's about what you've got, and how you present it.

mm, I know what you mean. But, tbh you need to appeal to your audience and a voting machine (very intricate and i understand it'd take time) simply doesn't catch the eye of young PMC'ers. And youtube really doesn't have a lot to do with it, most PMC members don't have youtube and are still very successful

Well, I found Barmas profile, but Sky is an inactive member unless Sky is a nickname :P
I'm sure there are some circumstances where youtube has affected the member, but that's because they are appealing to their audience through having youtube as a bonus.

how is appealing to the audience unfair? It's like giving someone a cookie vs giving someone one chocolate chip. Which would you prefer?

all of this is true but really? 100 diamonds for a unshaded? that's a bit over exaggerated.

This is so true. My build that i spent like 2 months on only has 4 diamonds after awhile and 3 ppl that commented on it.

you can't really complain about a first build reaching 123 views ;)
most skinners would be lucky to get 5 on their first skin (although there tend to be loads of skins so people miss them because of their sheer numbers)

I totally agree with you but please at least proof-read your blog before posting it? "Now, this is kind of like unrecognized people, but this is more like how they feel." doesn't make sense. "They tried there hardest"?! Spelling accuracy and skill with language is the first step to success. Keep that in mind.

Good blog! Totally agree with you. A lot of people doesn't get the recognition they probably deserve after putting a lot of work intio their projects.
A bugbear of me is also that people don't comment near enough..Comments tells you that people have actually looked at your stuff and is encouraging, especially for new people on here..Diamond from me..

I've made 4 maps, and one of them is almost at 4,000 downloads, which made me so happy. It's extremely gratifying to see your work being recognised and people using it (I've watched about 15 playthroughs) :D So, do as this guy says :3
