Craftinglord21's response: https://www.vidlii.com/watch?v=sWyplgJ7oEa Twitch was meant to be for gaming but that's pretty much changed a good deal in recent years, though it's probably still mostly used for gaming.

While I have been getting good views here, it's mostly been about the subjects I mentioned that tend to get views on YT alternatives, as well as drama related videos. Though the only video with three stars or less I have thus far is my "NO RANDOM FRIEND REQUESTS!" video. I didn't expect that to be my least popular opinion, especially not with my "YouTube Alternative Mentality" video, which out of five ratings currently has four stars...

Matt, your points of why there shouldn't be youtube alternatives, are completely biased and very boring.
You got to understand, my favourite creators are getting fucked left right and center, losing about $350,000 or more because of the adpocolypse.
The fact that youtube admits they rig the site to shit is worrying, they clearly don't give a fuck about the fanbase and well it's not surprising.
So if you wanna whine about Vidlii or any other video sharing sites, just move back to youtube and shut the fuck up.

Wow. These Vidlii users are getting extremely violent and defensive as time flies. I need to tell all of you that I don’t think i’ll be uploading any more content to Vidlii as of May 2018, and I just been here since the end of September 2017.

With the recent new spam and misleading videos being uploaded on this site on a regular basis, the moderators choose to leave these bad users alone. I reported a video for containing a misleading title that mentioned content that was not in the video, and got a strike for reporting spam.

Also many of these Vidlii users are becoming extremely homophobic by promoting regressive propaganda like homophobia, hatred against sexuality’s/genders, one sided views to everything, etc.

@PCgamer2231 AM is the lead mod right now btw and he's one of the people who promotes this mindset. If Alison hadn't gone too far you might have gotten what you wanted but he went too far.

Vidlii is a centralized generic worldwide hosting site. This means that any of the 7 billion people on earth can upload stuff. Since it’s generic, there’s no specific one type of videos to be uploaded (like cartoons or educational videos) so this opens doors to spam and celebrity videos, as well as misleading thumbnails.

Vidlii then allows users to have custom thumbnails, and users go wild. They then make eye gorging sunburst thumbnails with photoshopped pictures and ALL CAPS TEXT. Educational and original videos are then banned from Vidlii to make way for the screamers.

Late 2018 - more drama than the site has ever witnessed. User population of about 3 million with 5 mods. Vidlii then does what yt does, instead of taking the site down, they forcefully hire up to 1000 real people against their will and leach off californian taxes, taking money away from families and hardworking people.

Then some conspiracy therist explodes and shoots the HQ.

@YTrojanEnterprises My intention isn't to insult it. It's just that sites like this one aren't right for everyone and in due time, they will fall victim to several of the same flaws as YouTube. Alorythm bullshit or not, the fact of the mater is that there is not a large audience for legitimate content creators. Should another site rise to replace YouTube, the clickbaiters and those who would do anything it takes to gain views and ad revune will just take over again just as they had with YouTube. Why do you think AskaGangsta got so popluar on Vidme so quickly? Vidme had to put a stopgap on "politics" channels for good reason but sadly it was too little to help promote the legitimate content creators, only those who pandered to their audience, did everything to took to get fame and blindly praised Vidme's staff became successful, if they weren't already as so on YouTube.

My plan is to spread to these websites, hopefully finding a new audience. That's the reason why they ARE the answer, because YouTube is restricting my growth. VidLii is how the chains were broken, and you INSULT it!? Go back to your bad YouTube page and enjoy the vapid trash there.

I see your point about having different web sites for different categories of content, but it would be a royal pain to keep track of several places where my videos are since I make quite a variety of content. For now, I just share the links to specific videos to specific audiences on social media, and that is working for me.

@mattwo left a response to all of your stuff on your newest video. Also, never said I knew everything about you, just the recent alternative videos. Your reply was well written though and you made good arguments against me.

@KnotSnappy @Aaronshy Really it sounds to me like you two are getting the wrong message from this video.

@KnotSnappy "When reading this comment to I sound like a hypocrite a bit, but that isn't the point"

This has suddenly become kind of an important detail.

@KnotSnappy "why do you still use it so much to watch videos"

Why do you think I do? Especially with the "so much" part. I barely watch videos on here at all.

"but those have already been well argued against and disproved"

How exactly?

"actively using VidLii"

Define "actively".

"insulting it"

Criticizing it.

"and then acting like nothing you say can be disproved at all"

Wut?

"I realize that a lot of the things I do I argue against later because I realize that earlier I was wrong, but you don't do that very often"

Bullshit. For someone who claims to know all about how active I am on Vidlii, you sure don't know how I already admitted some of the things I said in my last video were wrong. Not to mention I've admitted to being wrong about a lot of things in the past. You're not an expert on all things Mattwo-related yet you're acting like you are.

@Aaronshy You talk as though I don't want these sites to succeed.

You repeat a lot of the biased opinions on this video that you list off as reasons why alternative sites "aren't the answer we need" but those have already been well argued against and disproved. You are being very stubborn and letting your past experiences completely take over your though process. If you don't think vidlii is a very good site why do you still use it so much to watch videos? I may be misunderstanding what you're saying but it's starting to get on my nerves a little bit when you are actively using VidLii, insulting it, and then acting like nothing you say can be disproved at all. When reading this comment to I sound like a hypocrite a bit, but that isn't the point. I realize that a lot of the things I do I argue against later because I realize that earlier I was wrong, but you don't do that very often.
