Alright alright alright.
Please just read entirely through.
I have obviously been a prick on here for the past two months or so, and it needs to stop. I admit, I don’t agree with most of the moderators and their actions. I think the cliquiness of their group can keep them narrow minded towards some topics posted here. BUT, that does not mean I should continue to post negative and sarcastic posts. It also does not mean I should have said some of the things I have said to some of the moderators. I know during my brief period of terror on these forums I have created a bias towards myself, which hasn’t helped or improved the community or my standing in it. The reason this negativity has come out of me, and others who agree with some of the things I’ve said about Byte, is because I care about Byte and its creators. I love this app, and want it to thrive. I was extremely lucky to be a partner and have that kind of involvement in this app, and I clearly have not shown my gratitude enough for that opportunity in recent weeks. I am thankful for the friendships from vine I have rekindled through Byte, and all the news one I have created on this platform. I get emotionally involved in things I spend so much time on (especially any job I’ve had, no matter how shitty it was) and it’s hard for me to control it at times. I am a pessimist at heart, so it’s easy for me to run wild with a negative or “glass half-empty” mindset if things seem to be going awry in an environment I rely on for work and/or leisure (Byte having been both for me). As the recent updates seem to cater more and more to the newer TT crowd, my security within the app, and community I am involved in, felt threatened. I felt like I was being push to the side and was no longer going to have a home. I don’t really feel at place with my content anywhere but here, and formerly on Vine.
The main point of this is, going forward I will try my hardest to no longer focus so much negative energy on what I believe to be Byte’s short comings. I will try to stop my sarcastic nature towards the app, Dom, Byte staff, and most importantly the moderators of this forum. I realize the amount of energy I have been putting into my negativity is stupid and childish. I still believe in many of the things I have said, but from now on I will focus my energy back into positivity for this app and everyone on it. I do want this app to succeed. For anyone who has followed me since the beginning, and on other social media, you know in the beginning I advertised this app as much as I possibly could. Unfortunately I couldn’t get too many people on it because I am not famous, and my friends are dicks, but I always try to mention it to people. The amount of times in the past 6 months I’ve heard someone say “vine died and now I have to watch Tik Tok even though I hate it” and I tried to steer them to Byte is insane.
I do truly love this app. And again, even though I have already made up plenty of people’s minds about me, I do apologize for my recent behavior. I hope going forward I can prove again to be a valid community member, and not someone who influences and increases a divide when there doesn’t need to be one.
Thank you for taking the time to read my rambling,
