LOOK, I DON'T WANT TO START A FIGHT HERE AGAIN, BUT I NEEDED TO SAY THIS. YOU CAN TELL YOUR OPINION ON IT, BUT DON'T SAY "HEY YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT YOU'RE WRONG BECAUSE I'M SO COOL LOLOL"
I was wrong all the way. I just realized it today...
Everything I do is an error. I should stay what I was in November 2009.
The past and the present
That's when I first joined Utau. That's when I had friends and that's when...it was still something fun.
Is it me who was just a kid and see the good side of things and got emo now, or was it a fun place, unlike now? I meant, the overseas utau community (ouc to make it shorter) didn't get that much people who just ran around yelling that everybody's utauloids are bad, less who would get sad/jealous "because their utauloid weren't as good as X's" and...*sigh* but the ouc had more people who actually wanted to make an utauloid to make them sound GOOD. who (or at least tried their best to) put efforts in them.
I meant, how many cases of utauloids created with dressup games you saw back then? of people making a LOT utauloids and playing around with them for 2 weeks and then give them up? people saying "oh their tutorials are not good i don't want to know about it, can't you just do it for me, it'll be faster!" when they don't even know HOW to do it? you don't judge things when you don't know how they are. ...and finally, selfish people. I know most of your have an utauloid, right? My question seemed so idiotic, right? "Why the heck would somebody be in the Utau community if they don't have an utauloid?!" well. Ashiotone-P. They're not Kori's creator/voicer. Why would people put utauloids' voicebanks up for download if everybody just used their own utauloid(s, for a lot of people)? I guess some of you people only have utauloids' voicebanks because that utauloid's voicer helped you with something, so you NEEDED to do something in return, that's why you downloaded the voicebank. And left it there, didn't even bother to unzip it, right? Me I have around 80 voicebanks including the 2 versions of my utauloid. I thought that it was very few. I was wrong. Some people had no more than 10 voicebanks (and they didn't just join last week). I mean, in February 2009, it was probably impossible to get an amount over 100 of voicebanks, but some users having over 10 times more voicebanks than other users? ...Ugh I don't want to talk about this anymore, it makes me sick.
But I still think the USloids are the only "group" that still actually care for each other.
The "-P" name
A lot of japanese users have one, Sango312 has one, Matt9five has one, etc etc etc. And you you want one too. You're ready to CHEAT for it. you're ready to call yourself a -P when you did nothing to desserve it. And O JOY! One day, you finally got it. You jump around, tell it everybody over 10 times. But one little detail, you forgot what exactly a -P name is. You wanted to become a baker, but wanted to be called "Dr. ..." so you became a doctor instead. You destroy your big dream for a tiny one. A -P name is just a name. Having it or not will change nothing to how people look at you. Well, how people who UNDERSTAND what it is. People should get -P names to make it easier to look for their work (ex. when you look for a song of X-P on Nico Nico Douga, you look up their -P name). People should not get a -P name just to make people call them "X-P! X-P!" and make you feel all powerful and awesome. Because that is WRONG. What does an empty "awesomness" mean? You would give an empty bottle to who's dying of thirst because that's what we use to put water in? I would like you to take 5 minutes just to think...What exactly is a -P name? Why do you want it? Is it really worth it?
Just like the amount of CO2 in the air, just like the amount of people who can't get enough water, just like the world population, HATE in the ouc is growing. Wanting to be THE best. The ONLY one. You would smash them down to be on top, being happy to be on top, not noticing that this "top" has just went town. Could it be better if we could all look deep down inside us, to see what WE are doing wrong, instead of blaming everybody else? NOBODY is perfect. You can't be totally innocent. Nobody is. If people admitted they can be wrong, admitted that X were actually better than them, wouldn't ouc become a better place?
Hey, if I...
* make my utauloid duet with a vocaloid just to make them popular?
What exactly is the big deal out of that. People won't remember them as "X's utauloid", but as "that utauloid who sang Y with Z"
* yelled about my utauloid everywhere so every single human on this planet knows them?
You tell it yourself.
* go all around asking people to do stuff for my utauloid?
I think you should learn to do things yourself.
I'm not saying that you shouldn't ask anybody to do anything to help you at all, me I love receiving requests, but hey, there's a limit, right? Nobody likes the same person asking you a million times to help them with a thousand projects that they don't even finish...
There are still people who make the hope of ouc being a nice place like it was not-so-long ago, but most people... are what they are, I guess?
Some little things I tell myself (and who do help if you actually try to understand them and put them in use) :
- *Don't try to make friends, try to BE a friend.
*If you allow yourself to hate, people will allow themselves to hate you.
*Helping others doesn't always mean they'll help you back, but you can always know you made somebody happy (there are exeptions on this one, though...)
*Be thankful of what you have/get.
one last question, why does these forums still exist when the first reason of their existence is not here anymore?
