Hey guys, AnimeFanFTW here with a sort of a rant, and this rant is about the lack of originality in recent submissions in PMC.

(Any hateful comments will be deleted, k?)

Now when I look at the Skins section and the Blogs section in PMC, I see interesting, funny and original content. But then I see lots of content that make me cringe.
Seeing yet another Gamer Hoodie skin, another Panda Girl, another Bacca skin, yet another Mob Interview (those make me soooooo angry) and yadda yadda, you get the idea. I see this nearly all the time and it kinda gets on my nerves.

All I ask to those people that make these types of things is this:

Where's the originality?

What is the point of yet another Gamer Hoodie skin? There are 1000's of those skins avaliable on PMC, we don't need another one.
Why bother making a Mob Interview? They are not funny, nor interesting, and the point of an interview is to get to know the interviewer better.
Why make another Ninja skin? They take little effort to make and it has already been done before.

Instead of just making skins and blogs that have already been done before and with little effort, plan and take time making your content. Think up new ideas and experiment. Make something that hasn't been made hundreds of thousands of times.

I might not be the perfect example of this, but I try my best to think up new ideas, new skins and new blogs.

I just wanted to say this so that people could make new and interesting content, instead of stuff I have seen too many times.

Ok, rant over!

Until the next blog...

This is AnimeFanFTW, over and out!

Almost a month or so ago, I made a tutorial blog on how to make wreckage and ruins. Apparently I struck a gold mine and before I know it the blog has 50 diamonds 0_0 and from the comments I got it was an original idea for a blog. I honestly didn't expect that at all.

I agree with this, although I sometimes make a skin after seeing someone else make something similar. What I really don't like is when people take a skin that has been stolen over 50 times, edit one pixel, and call it their own. For example, a Cupa skin. I've seen the same one so many times it makes my head hurt. But if I want to make a  skin, I try to make it as original as possible. Over all, I agree with this completely.

I completely agree with this. It's like someone sees a skin and because it's so popular they think that they should do it too...and this goes on and on. It's ridiculous.

I agree with this 100000000000000000000000%!! No-one seems to have any originality. I hate it when people wear those generic skins which everyone use. They should be unique! :)

There is something i don't understand.
I make skins. Nobody seems to notice those skins.
There are people like you animefanftw that get the attention.
Your skins are nice though.
Maybe people just don't like my skins? ._.

(Not complaining by the way)

I agree. Although, I find the lack of GLaDOS skins on PMC.... maybe because I flooded half of the Planet with a deadly Neurotoxin...

People keep on uploading the same thing, especially when it comes to those "Fox Hoodie Girls." I see that way too much now. So that's why I have glasses.

The first mob interview was definitely original, and creative.
But then, the internet did as the internet does best, it copied someone else's idea.

You might need to check your grammar on this, is "1000" a person and what are you talking about that "1000" owns?

yes but for skins mostly every thing that is "copied" it's a different variation of what comes out of each persons creativity and therefore should be able to express that

I would call this blog "unoriginal" too... there are plenty of those complaining... People need to start on easier stuff like creating teen skins. They can't jump right into it and skin Master Chief or some other stuff...
