So when Vine died the first time I posted some thoughts that I had along with some letters that I sent to the Vine people about a year before it’s timely passing. I had some major issues with some of the decisions that were being made on the platform and this might be a good place to post the feedback. Let me know what you think!

Look who it is!!!
truly deep, write something for my funeral
thank you for sharing this
Thanks Dom. Glad to see you checking the forums! I was a pretty loud advocate for certain changes in the original platform and I hope this all gets taken into consideration with the new app.
Sweet it’s nicelt categorised now
Wow, that was amazingly written… Like, I feel so bad for you… Like, Deep.
Thank you for sharing this with us. I agree with your points on both sensitive topics and the sexualization of minors. Although certain sensitive topics (or just the use of words) can enhance a comedic effect, even if self-targeted, should be avoided. The sensitivity and effect behind these topics or words may be very strong for certain people, and that’s not something to be taken lightly. I believe that this should be extended to all forms of prejudice and derogatoriness.
The sexualization of minors should also be taken very seriously. I am a full supporter of respecting others’ choices and what they do with their body. I would not tell anyone to change the way they act or dress. But, actively promoting the topic (even if by computed selection of trending topics) is a different story. In today’s society, we see a perpetuation of so called “rape culture” which is becoming increasingly hard to combat.
Thanks Wizard. re:sexualization of minors I think that people should be able to post whatever they want but Vine should NOT be promoting it. That’s where I was trying (and likely failing) to focus what I was saying. I’m all for free speech, just not for the platform promoting the worst of it
Yes, this is exactly what I’m thinking as well.
