    I'm supposed to be at school right now (cuz it's 1:08 PM), but this happened:

    A group of peoples, named "gilets jaunes" (yellow jackets" in english) were manifesting against a reform that would make the baccalaureate harder and worse.
    They were blocking the high school entry, so I was outside.
    But some people were launching smokes, firecrackers, and wanted to use trash bins to explode bigger firecrackers on it (hopefully, me and others people prevented them from doing that). The police was here and with all this mess, I think they were about to launch some teargas grenades on the crowd for it to dissipate. So for my security, I decided to get back home.

    Swift got a reaction from Yoshifan33 for a status update, In defence of @Neon Fox . They did nothing wrong, in fact they did everything right!   
    In defence of @Neon Fox. They did nothing wrong, in fact they did everything right! All they did was try and help the community by posting a tutorial, sure it might have not been perfect, but it was still his first post. This is why we never get any new active members here, you all just treat them bad until they get demotivated and quit.
    Edit: I feel it would be better to just ignore them if they make you mad, no point in downvoting someone to oblivion.

    We aren't doing a great job at welcoming people into the forums and community. I noticed a lot of new members are at like -10 rep on their first day or two. Ease 'em in, because I'm sure you were just as bad when you started out. Let's make this place a little more friendly.

    A lot of Vietnam roleplay going around, but...
    ummmm my grandpa fought in the Vietnam war. I know this is just roleplay, but he's described the horrors to me, (since he was also shot 4 times at once, which made it worse) and believe me, that place was hell. He couldn't walk 5 feet without a Vietcong jumping out and shooting someone next to him. It took a decent sized skirmish for him to get shot, and when he did, a comrad picked him up and carried him 3 miles, while my grandpa shot at the Vietcong who were chasing them. I don't like to spoil stuff, but I take this to heart. So it may be fun and games for you, but it really isn't a joke.
     
     
    Sorry for ruining it for anyone.

    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.

    This might seem like I'm reactionary sort of person, but I think it's kind of sad to see more prominent and respected forumers being assholes to newbies. (I might have done it before, and I apologize because I realize how mean it is).

    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!
