Failure

"When you have to use YouTube annotation to understand what the hell half of the dialogue is, I think you've failed" -TwoTube2

   A comment that single-handily criticises pretty much my whole YouTube Pooping career. At first the comment was pretty harmless. However, after I was really thinking about it, I realized something about myself and YouTube Poop that I didn't think about it before. I realized that this comment not only sums up my YouTube Poop career, but it is the main reason I do not make videos as much. Now I know that maybe sounds strange, but here is how I feel.


   Now before I discuss myself here, I will talk about the comment itself. The guy does have a point here. I can't really argue against that only because I put annotations up as I think the sentence mixing is not good enough to understand. The other main reason I do this is to make it so people who need the annotations can just use them. The commenter is spot on. I do have them up so the dialogue is a bit understandable. Which for some can take away the experience, while for others it may add to it. It took me a little while to realize this, but annotations on a YouTube Poop is pointless. Not because, it could make the video better/worse, but because annotations are meant to be used for video announcements and links. Not to be used as subtitles.


   To be fair though, it isn't the annotations that are ruining my YouTube Poops. Some people don't even use them and the use of text on a screen really doesn't determine if something is good or bad. The reason my YouTube Poops turned out poor was because of my sentence mixing. Now I know some of you said that I was good at sentence mixing, but I was decent at best. It was the fact that I used the annotations to try and make my sentence mixing seem better than it is. Some people are calling me out on it including me. There is also those people who say "Can you put up annotations?". For awhile, I thought that maybe it was making the videos better than some. However, in reality, if the sentence mixing was better, there would be no need for them.


   Now I know that annotations are not the reason why I am not making as much YouTube Poops anymore. There are a few reasons for that which I am about to point out. The reason why it takes me a very long time to make and upload YouTube Poops is because:


I am a bad YouTube Pooper


   Now I know some of you are thinking right now as you read the first point, "But you were always a bad pooper". Although true, back at my peak, I used to think I was good and had potential. However, it isn't so much that I am a bad pooper, because I embrace it. It is more of the fact that I know that I won't get any better. It is the fact of knowing I tried my best, but I have maxed out my potential. So it isn't as exciting as before, and that does hurt me a bit inside. All this time I was tricked into thinking I was actually good.


   Also good YouTube Poopers are usually good with their style and what they do. They can adapt when needed and are pretty good all around. People look forward to their videos and look up to them as a favourite or an inspiration. I am none of that. I just happened to get better at the right time. If I started my whole YouTube Poop career a year later, there is no way people could tolerate my videos the way did back in 2010.


I have less confidence, motivation, and ideas


   I am trying my best to return YouTube Pooping, even if it is like only a few uploads a year. However, I am at a point where I have little for ideas, and from that I have less motivation, and for that I have less confidence. I am not confident I can be as good as shown in the past YouTube Poops. I have less motivation as I have convinced myself I am a bad pooper and I am no good. I have little ideas because I have been away for YouTube Poop for so long, I have no idea how to start over again.


No momentum


   Even though I came out of retirement and made a YouTube Poop, that was the only YouTube Poop for over a year. Even the last poop before my latest one was over a year. I have nothing to build on. I was in a making of a YouTube with some of my best sentence mixing, but a plot so weak, I decided to cancel uploading all together. Thus, killing my momentum even more. Heck, I even had momentum while making all those horrible flash poops. When I was making videos constantly and at a good pace, it felt pretty good. Now with nothing in years, it seems kind of like a chore just to upload one now.

   So in conclusion, it is not as fun as before. I have less confidence, motivation, and ideas. Lastly, I don't know how to start up again. I still like making YouTube Poops and ths comment really won't change my style. However, it is alot harder for me now. I could pretend to start over, but life is really getting in the way now. I haven't touched my latest project in over 2 weeks now and it is funny, because I really want to upload it. It is funny how all of this came from a simple, yet effective comment. I hope to upload for you guys once again.

YouTube Poop update (April 2013)

  
   Hello folks! YER0CKY here with a couple of quick updates. I posted here a month ago that I was in the works of uploading a CD-i YouTube Poop on my main channel. The reason I bring this up is because the project, or YouTube Poop, has become a failure and is not up to my standards in uploading.


   The reason it isn't up to my standards isn't because of the quality of the work, or because of the lack of sentence mixing skill. The reason is a bit superficial, but it is because I think it just sucks. Now I know some of you are thinking, "Well all your YouTube Poops suck lol. So why does it bother you now?" The difference now from back then was at least I thought my YouTube Poops were good, or at least decent, before upload. Where as this project I was working on was nothing really more than a trailer than anything and the whole idea centred around me returning to YouTube Pooping. Which I think now is pretty lame for a YouTube Poop, not even YouTube Poop really.


   Instead I'll make something different. I was going to upload it on my alt account to show that the sentence mixing wasn't the problem. However, the day after I started typing this blog draft, my computer decided to crash. In a way, it is a relief as I don't have to worry about that anymore, but it is more frustrating because of all the effort and time I put into it. Even thought the plot was horrible, I had some of my best sentence mixing I had in a CD-i poop. I have been working on and off this project for at least 6 months, all for nothing and all in all not good.


   In saying that, I will be making more projects. I'm looking to use ERB, Command and Conquer cut scenes, Billy Mays, Wilford Brimley, Old crib instructor, and more as sources. I still do plan to make more from CD-i, but I have only a remake in mind for now. So yeah that is all the updates I have for now.


Bye!

Updates! (2013)

Hello folks, YER0CKY here and I just want to start out by saying that if you are reading this right now, then you must be a true fan!

Anyways, I'm here to give you guys some quick updates about what changes are coming for me, my poops, and channel changes in general. Below I have a list of events/changes that I have made/planned in the last few months.



My return to YouTube Pooping (AKA YER0CKY 2.0)

I don't need much of an introduction for this one. Basically, I "retired" from YouTube Pooping, after a year of making them, as I was focusing on university. There were also some controversial events that also somewhat influenced me to leave the YouTube Poop in general. Not because I was brought down by other people, I just knew it was best to leave and stay out of other people's politics basically. Simply put, I disliked my personal YouTube community, but not EVERYONE that was in it though.

I didn't so much retire, but more like took big hiatus. I had it in my head that I was going away for a year and would try to return to pooping again in 2012. However, that didn't work out and ended up not pooping until a year after that. So, basically I was gone for two years. I never really wanted to leave in the first place. I thought becoming inactive on purpose was the best thing to do to get away from everyone.

That is enough history for now. For the most part I will be making the same style YouTube Poops like I did in the past. I know right now and even almost a year ago that my style WILL NOT bring as much attraction that it did in my prime. Which doesn't bother me because it was what I was best at and the fact that I don't care for subscribers. I'll be using the same sources like I did before, with the exception of using less CD-I. Not because I don't like it anymore, but because I have really no ideas for those sources anymore. In saying that, CD-I is still one of my most favorite sources of all time. Not to mention it has always been my channel identity. I will be pooping what I want, how I want. However, any feedback is appreciated

I also want to say that I have accepted, in a beautiful way, that I am a bad YouTube Pooper. Although when I was somewhat of a big-shot, some people said I was pretty good. Now saying that will I get better now that I know I'm bad? Nope. However, I will still try my hardest to impress you guys as well. But pleasing me always comes first as I am limited to my own imagination. So respect your elders, sonny! (Haha, I had to put that in there somewhere)

As for right now, I was working on a YouTube Poop, until my laptop screen broke. It is getting looked at right now. I hope it will be all fixed up, with my hard-drive intact and will be back in business again someday!



The closing of TheWorstYTPs channel

To other people, this channel was a cancer that killed me and ultimately brought me down to nothingness However, this isn't true at all. I never felt like this channel was bringing me down at all. It was everyone else that had a problem with it. There are a couple reasons why I decided to close this account. One reason is that it was never really being used. I tried tweaking the channel and started using it again at one point. However, I stopped using it again shortly after. Which leads me to my main reason for the closing. I simply don't have the time to run that channel anymore. With all the things going on in my life, especially in the last year, I decided to focus all my energy into YouTube Pooping once again. Even though people hated me for this, I actually enjoyed running this channel overall. But, it may have gone too far in some cases for some. Now with this channel gone, it just creates one less distraction for me now.




My stance on my "subscribers"

As you may already know, I don't care about subscribers. However, I am still happy to report I have recently reached my 900th all-time subscriber in my YouTube Poop career. This number of course is over-bloated and not by any means official. Don't get me wrong, I like people that actually watch my videos. Unfortunately, history shows that most of the people that have subscribed me through-out my YouTube Poop career had no interest in my works and somehow ended up subbing me. Now you understand why I kept saying I was over-rated.




Minor changes to my main and alt channels


I didn't do to much on my alt account as it is never used anymore. I still got good ideas for the use of this channels. Like filter poops and YouTube Poop commentaries. However for now, it is basically dormant. I have a few ideas for discussion. However, for now, I need to focus all my energy into making YouTube Poops again

As for my main channel I have tweaked a few things. First, I changed my playlist of my last 10 YouTube Poops uploads, and decided to have a Top 10 YER0CKY poops of all-time. I also changed my features channels. It isn't my Top 10 current favorite YouTube Poopers, but now it is a list of poopers that I was most influenced by in the past and present. Simply they are the main reason I am the way I am in the YTP community today. I also changed my playlist to my favorite YouTube Poops from all the YouTube Poopers I am subscribed to. This list is in progress though.



Conclusion 

I am back and have plans to be here for awhile. I am excited to return to the hobby that I love so much. I have a new system of making poops. Including making 1 sentence per day. This helps me make steady progress for my YouTube Poops. With the rise of many other poops styles and poopers, like cs188, I hope you still can enjoy my YouTube Poops still. If not, I understand.

On a final note, I am sorry to any of my friends and supporters that had to see me go down like that, and for any grudge you have against me, whatever it may be. This was planned at the end of 2010 and I didn't intend on avoiding or leaving you guys. I have no hard feelings against any of you. I just needed to do something drastic. I needed to do the right thing.
