    My PC broke twice so I lost all my files, including my animations. I lost my current animation project of 4 minutes which I guess it really sucks so uhh... I don't know what I'm gonna do now, possibly short animations before I come up with another big project idea. I have no plans of re-doing everything from scratch.
    So the animation I had planned is indeed cancelled. I suppose this might give me a chance to be a bit more active here as I post shorter stuff.
    So yee I lost these 2 characters I showed you a long time ago here:

    My Christmas gift to you is 3 years on the forums. Yaaaaaay
    In all my time on the forums, I regret who I was as a person for 2 of them. But I don't regret this past year, which was also the source of a majority of my rep. Halfway through my second year on the forums, I almost quit completely if I hadn't been a part of the Capinima Discord (the animation team that made one wallpaper and disbanded afterwards). The thing is, I was kind of an idiot before Capinima, and a bit before I took a few-month long break. I'm not entirely sure what made me happier with myself that came from Capinima and the forums, but at one point I just drifted back to both. I think I realized that the people on the forums are actually really cool and talented. And even after a long hiatus, they don't question you when you return, they're just happy to talk to you. It's like the comfortable middle-ground between friendly and understanding. If that makes sense.
    Anyway, even if I don't make animations (or, finish them at least), I think it's really cool that the forums are still that comfortable middle-ground, and I was able to make a Discord with @-StickyMations- where we can actually do just that. Obviously we're pretty toxic in there, and it makes me pull my hair out sometimes, but it's comfortable. It's comfortable.
    This isn't really a Minecraft animation forum is it? It's like a karaoke bar that we all visit regularly, making friends and forming outside groups that still share that bar in common. Sometimes people go up on stage and sing- doesn't have to be good but people will support them anyways and have a good laugh. Eventually the bar becomes a sort of afterthought, and the friendships themselves take the spotlight, on the karaoke stage.
    Tldr: Thanks for this good year, to me and to you all. Here's to a few more.

    What makes the internet great is that people can say what they want about what they want. Don't get salty because some doesn't like something you like. Its the truth that people will not like a good animation just because its about something they don't like. Its the same in almost every community. There's no point to get pissed by it.
     
    Its like lets say: F.N.A.F, yeah sure some people make really good animations that look good but some people will not like it because its F.N.A.F, that's how the internet is.
     
    I'd also like it to not be called out about what I don't like. Sorry that you get salty that I don't like something you don't :/.

    Sorry for the double status but I've been having some thoughts and only just got my finger on what exactly they are. I didn't really know why I took my little break but after people on foreign affairs talked about some of their problems I really started to figure out what was going on. Well, there were some personal things I wanted to fix, which I did, but I also realized some of those problems were caused by the same thing that caused the forums' problems, and I gave in.
    You see, the last straw, the nail in the coffin that made me take my break, was the profile picture thing. If you weren't online to see exactly what happened, basically me and a couple other people copied the profile picture of a certain user and mocked them a little. It was pretty harmless, but pretty toxic as well. That was when I got my first warning point in the last 2 years. That was when I knew there was a problem, I just didn't know exactly what problem drove me to some silly, immature, and kinda unnecessary joke.
    Older members have been leaving, which isn't a bad thing in itself, but new members have been taking their place. That isn't a bad thing either, but it can sometimes feel like they're overpowering good, wholesome content. Again, they have every right to post their creations, but there is a certain attitude among a lot of them. I keep feeling the need to say it, but none of this is anyone's fault. It was all happening kind of subconsciously, don't blame anyone for having a toxic attitude. Anyway, there are a lot of new users who I think just don't really understand criticism that well. It's okay to make bad content, it's normal. It is always possible to fix, and it should be encouraged to fix. But it seems like a lot of the newer users take emotional responses to people practicing this mindset. Criticism is always a good thing, and it kind of baffles me that anyone takes offense to any criticism. Whether or not it's good criticism is up for argument, but in any case, criticism should never be considered a personal offense, to you or your work.
    Still with me? Good, I'm just getting started. So this attitude, this attitude that implied criticism was worthless and that new users should be told they are perfect and that this attitude was the right attitude and that anyone who disagreed is just inherently rude, started to cause some problems. Older users who actually gave advice, sometimes jokes, couldn't help but feel offended by this new mindset. A lot of people were antagonized or invalidated, which only made things worse. These same older users felt the need to push their criticism further, getting more aggressive. After all, you can't really argue against the mindset of the newer users, so the only thing we know how to do is practice ours more aggressively. This escalated and only made it easier for new users to antagonize them, both sides thinking they're doing the right thing. This only created a very toxic atmosphere, with the divide getting bigger and bigger. Some new users felt the need to defend each other and gather together in groups, upvoting each other and downvoting others when there was a disagreement.
    There is more I could talk about that, but I'm pretty confident on the cause of some trivial things that piled up over the last couple months (more or less). This affected all of us, including me. I finally gave into the toxic atmosphere and I realized there was a problem I needed to fix. At the time I had no idea what was wrong with the community, so I just took a while off to refresh myself and think about all of it.
    In short, the whole community lost itself and made people feel unwelcome. The only change we can really make to fix it is personal improvement, nothing that can be encouraged. I think we all just need to kind of take a step back and keep an open mind to the input of other people. We're all important, and it's never healthy to invalidate other people, even if it's for the sake of helping yourself (yet still, in this case it does not help yourself).
    Happy day my friends.

    So after a week of thinking about it, and multiple friends pushing me to do it, im announcing my departure from MI all together, my last animation will be a Doctor Who christmas special featuring my good pals @Rollo and @Swift. I will still be on the forums and discord if any of you want to get in contact with me and what not, but anyways here are the titles for my christmas special! (theme by hardwire)
    im sad to say im leaving MI after 4-5 years of working with it, and in my opinion i have definitely gotten better, but its sadly time to leave it. though i might work on a few random stuff in it, but im mainly going to try out new things like blender!

    Hey friends, so I needa say something.
    The past few weeks I've felt to be in a really low place, and I don't know exactly why. I've felt like my mistakes are worse than they may really be, I've felt like my ideas are stupid. I guess I've felt kinda useless. But my point is that the forums and Discord haven't really helped with these feelings. So I'm going to take a short break from the forums and Discord for self-reflection and just to think about what exactly is causing it all. I might respond if you mention me on Discord but don't count on it.
    Y'all are great, I'll probably be back in a few days, maybe a week. Just need to clear my head for a bit.

    Shoutout to @david who made a dumb program that basically shaped the last several years of my life. I found a passion for 3D animation, which lead to a passion for storytelling in general. Despite leaving the forums, I'm still very much affected by all that's happened here. I made some incredible friends (CAW was a terrible idea,) and made some not-so-incredible animations that I'd never dare show my employers. With that being said, you remain truly Glorious, so here's to you.

     
    PS; I think it's just about time we unpin those Glorious David topics, dontcha think?

    This has nothing to do with mineimator, but I'm very excited! I didn't realize that there are affordable options for belt sanders available! I've been working in a foundry for over a year now, and I've often thought about how useful one of the Burr Kings we have there would be, but those things are $1,000-$3,000 at least. I was looking at dremels, and decided to look up belt sanders too. I found some less heavy-duty ones for $80-$130, so now I'm ecstatic! I make puppets, and I'm wanting to branch into making marionettes, so it'll be great! I don't need an industrial-grade sander, either, so the lower power won't be an issue. I'm really wanting to start making molds and castings too, soon; going to make things like puppet hands and maybe some miniatures.
