Hey hey guys! My name is Gaara406 and I've been apart of Planet Minecraft for a while now and I would say that I'm a fairly active member in the community and what not.
Now, I recently started a youtube channel, and I love making videos and ya da ya da ya. Now, being one of these newbie youtubers, I know exactly how hard it is to make good entertaining videos and how hard it is to earn subscribers, but what makes it even harder is when you get those really nasty people that come along and tell you that "you're never gonna make it" or "you suck" just little things like that.
I feel really bad for those smaller channels that I sometimes visit and people have written the nastiest things on their channels, I mean it's downright mean, it's basically cyber bullying. Now I am a rational person and I believe in a thing called constructive criticism, meaning if someone didn't like something about your video, and it could be anything, like how you talked too fast, or if you swore too much, or perhaps the video was lacking something, and they thought you might need to add in something....that my dear friends is call constructive criticism. Telling someone they suck, and that they're stupid or whatever is not constructive criticism, it it is bullying and I think it needs to stop.

So please, tell me your thoughts on this. Or maybe you've been a victim of this and would like to share your thoughts below, if so, please post a comment below.
Cheers mates,
Gaara406 ^^

I think people like that should keep it to themselves, why are they watching videos and posting things like that anyways.

I find that most people who try to beat you down are bored, have nothing better to do, and don't really mean you harm. They're just in it for a cheap laugh when an immature kid overreacts, much like older siblings picking on their brothers and sisters.

The reason that it's so prevalent on the internet is because you have a mask of anonymity protecting you from any real repercussions to your actions. Basically, the internet allows you to become anyone you want, given you have the acting skills. Unfortunately, many people choose to run amok, post offensive material, and generally act like jackasses. It's simply a reality imposed upon us by society's love of privacy and anonymity and a price we pay for safety.

That's not to say that there aren't some people who genuinely dislike someone or something, but I do have to commend them for holding their tongues until something really does bother them.

TL;DR: Most mean people are in it for the LOLs. There's so many because we are anonymous on the internet. Real "mean" people usually have strong hatred for something.

I created a blog about why I don't like how people call gold butter and some guy said some nasty things to me about that I shouldn't of posted that blog and that I should go and yea... So I have been cyber bullied too. I think everyone has been cyber bullied at times. Just don't let it get you down keep on going and believe in yourself no matter what other people say. Haters going to hate and we all have to deal with that :/ I just want you all to ignore the mean stuff that some people say to you.

People have such thin skins nowadays. They get one or two comments which aren't stroking their ego and suddenly they're being cyberbullied. You're throwing yourself into a vast ocean when you post on the internet, by either joining a forum or uploading a video. If you can't handle backlash then it's not for you, don't expect the entire system to change so that you can have a nice time.

It's not specific to kids trying to be the next big lets player either. Comedians for instance go through hell to become famous.

Haha. I actually do agree with this, when I made this blog, I wasn't saying that people were picking on me at all. I'm just saying that people do pick on some of the smaller youtubers you know. Haha, if people are mean to me, I just shove it off. I've been through a lot in my time, and some stranger across the internet ain't gonna get me down, I just laugh about it :P

I agree with you completely and couldn't have said it better myself. I don't mean to sound like an old twat, but children these days try to become the next best thing (especially in Minecraft, where they have found a popular and easy way to become famous), yet by doing so, they expose themselves to a much older and mature community that they can't handle, thus this person's situation.

Don't talk about "humanity won't change", Gaara, and I'm not trying to be a prick here, but this is life, and if you can't handle it, then you shouldn't even be exposing yourself to this.

This is the internet you can say anything to anyone if you don't like it then get off the internet or ignore the people saying you suck. But you won't change how people act by writing a blog.

Blogs are meant to address the community about things that happen.

I'm not saying that I can change how people act by writing a blog. Because of course that won't happen. Humanity won't change, because I don't believe Humanity can change. We're too wedged in our ways, to even think about changing.

Such is a way for people to feel more significant than others from they're pain and twist that into amusemant and enjoyement, It's human nature bro, better off not getting bugged about it, block them, report them, whatever. Even if I where to say "You suck" without looking at your hard work or any of that, It shouldn't affect your aspirations.

Not bullying, my friend. Trolling.

How is it trolling? There is a big difference between bullying and trolling.

Trolling is once, bullying is repeated several times with the intention to hurt the person due to a deviation from what the bullies call "normal"

I totally agree, Gaara406. I'm one of those people who go on Youtube and there's so many really good channels that just haven't got many subscribers. I think those bullies find that as an oppurtunity to tease them that no one is ever going to watch them because there's people like Skydoesminecraft and his crew.

Some starter channels are surprisingly good. Gaara406, have my diamond. Your the only person that I know who has wrote a blog about Cyber Bullying :O

There are many haters on Youtube,they dislike video for no reason at all.They are troll or just being jealous can't do better than anyone that started a channel.

Most of time,I just ignore them and keep doing my usual work.

Someone understands now. I shut down 2 different youtube accounts and am barely keeping one up. People think that just because your 12 and your young, that you can't call yourself a gamer. I honestly would love to start getting into a career or getting hopes for it in youtube. Again I'm only 12, but I have like 6,000 video views on one channel. It's hard being the bait and everyone being the predators. Thanks for understanding.

No offense, but if you can't take the hate, maybe you shouldn't make a YT channel?

Good on you for not giving up. Honestly, it doesn't matter what your age is, if you have the determination and the passion to keep doing it, then do it by all means. Do whatever makes you happy. Don't listen to the haters out there.
Keep it up (:
