I want to make everyone aware of a small issue in our community.
I’ve been seeing threads with a lot of attention about who’s your favorite creator, or which creators are underrated, or who’s your favorite creator in the partner program, and so on and so forth.
These threads end up doing two things, whether we intend to or not: they draw attention to some creators and other creators are left out.
Now, I’m not saying that these kinds of threads are bad. I understand that the people who start these threads have good intentions of drawing attention to those who definitely deserve it as well as hearing good things from the community.
My point here, though, is to kindly make you guys aware of those who unintentionally get left out of these threads. I’m well aware that everybody has their own personal preference on whose content they like, but at the same time, it’s human nature for us to crave attention and recognition, whether a little or a lot. In addition, some of us deal with anxiety/depression, which can unfortunately be amplified with the lack of attention or recognition. And I highly doubt anybody’s being intentionally left out, meaning that the reason why some creators are left out is mainly due to ignorance, which we’re honestly all guilty of in some way, shape, or form.
So how do we deal with this problem of leaving people out?
Well, the easiest solution would be to stop making threads that showcase other creators altogether, but at the same time that wouldn’t be the most ideal and best solution, as we’d miss out at giving some creators the attention they deserve but don’t get.
We’re a community with multiple unique minds, so I’m sure we can figure this out together! What do you guys think of the issue and what are some ways we could possibly fix it?
