I Emailed Vidme...

As some of you may or may not know, I make video blogs (Vlogs) for a network called Vidme. Last week on the 6th July 2017 to be exact things came to a head when another creator was unverified by the powers that be at Vidme. Twitter and Vidme as a video sharing platform was awash with people protesting about how unfair and unjust this was, I know, I was one of them. I took all the videos I had uploaded to Vidme down and "Went Dark" on my channel, leaving only one video on view. A minute long video which was from beginning to end only one word #Freekentantino.. That was it, sad thing is, this video had more views in its first hour on Vidme than I have had on any other video anywhere. The video has since been deleted. 

Things did get out of hand and I admit, I was fanning the flames of discontent, looking back I have to say, this was not my finest moment. I made unfounded posts based on what other people were saying, bearing in mind that these people were probably doing the same. Conspiracy theory me was running around unchecked. I admit, I got all caught up in the moment, I had jumped on the band waggon and was going along for the ride.

The following morning, once I had had time to reflect I knew this and emailed Vidme to offer my apologies for the way I had acted the night before, in an air of transparency here is the email I sent.

I did get a reply from two Vidme staff members regarding the night before and my apology which I am not going to make public, I dont have their permissions to do this.

So were am I now with regards to Vidme? 

I am staying with Vidme as my main Video sharing platform, but also using YouTube as a secondary platform as some of the people who like to watch my videos cant see them on Vidme (I dont know why).

Vidme is a young video sharing platform and mistakes have and will be made, but I see something and want to be there helping Vidme to be a force to be reckoned with in years to come. The community that surrounds this platform is second to none and I want to be part of it.
