After seeing the recent posts regarding the No. 6 fandom, and being one of the "newer" (and more lurky) people in it, I just kinda wanted to say thank you for all that you do. Fandom conflict is never fun and almost always unavoidable, but I certainly loved this show and many things about it, and it's always great seeing something new from you on my dash; your art reminds me of what I like in the show in the first place. So thanks a lot, really. I always look forward to seeing things from you.

That’s right… fandom conflicts are never fun, conficts in general and I avoid them, since I’m not fond of arguing. I hate fighting. But you’re right. They are not always avoidable. And you can’t always swallow everything that weights on your mind. But well.. we tried our best to handle and clarify this issue… but when the final answer is “flight” we can’t help at all… (.__.)

Thank you. I really appreciate your message. :3 I’m glad that my art makes people happy. I’ll give my best as long as I can.

yuneyn:

I’m reading things and I just…

Have I been aggressive to anyone? Have I called people names? 

I know my answer started this mess, and it honestly WASN’T my intention. There was an issue. I know we are several people to feel it, and because it started being too much I explained the issue. Explaining an issue does not mean blaming anyone in particular (even though I had to answer a specific post to do it). 

Explaining an issue means having the opportunity to discuss it. Resolve it, even. I had hoped for a peaceful discussion… Guess internet is not the place for it. 

I did not mean to offend elanra or thesexymaid. I did not mean to offend anyone. I’m sorry. I’ve also had enough response to my post to also know that a lot of people feel like me.

It sucks that you two are seen as the “senpai” around here. When I say it sucks, it’s because you didn’t ask for it and you apparently don’t like it. And I can understand it, it means having a responsibility… With everyone looking up to you, it’s hard for anyone new to arise without approval. It’s stupid, but it’s a stupid internet truth. (Not even limited to internet actually).

So yes. Seeing regretful posts about times past does not help. It’s not motivating. It’s also stupid, but it’s a human reaction. It’s just a fact… And of course you’re allowed to miss your friends, and of course you’re allowed to reminisce. But just acknowledging sometimes that there are good things… would just help all the people who are feeling insecure. 

I see people say “you should try instead of blaming people”. Have we not tried? We opened a forum, had No.6 Week, Ahiku also planned No.6 Day… Everything worked for a little while, but then completely failed. Maybe it’s just that the fandom as a whole is unmotivated, I don’t know… but it’s not an issue of trying.

There’s a deeper issue than just saying “it was better before”, but it sure doesn’t help, and that’s all I was trying to say. I was trying to say that it makes me feel sad whenever I see that. Sad isn’t necessarily angry. Elanra, you were expressing sadness in your post, so was I. I did not insult you. I do like and respect you, and did not expect you to take it this way.

I’m sorry for any offense I might have caused. It was not my intention as I said over and over again. Some of the things I read really offended me too, so I hope we can just get past this and maybe have a calm discussion about this matter… and who knows, maybe the fandom could come out stronger?

Please, anyone who feels like chiming in don’t hesitate. As the issue is now out, let’s talk about it. 

elanra, I’m sorry, but I totally misunderstood your post then. It was not my intention to offend you and I apologize that you feel sad now. And you should know me well enought to know that I rather give you tomato treats than harming you. But I also felt sad reading your post, just like yuneyn. You’ve written that you can’t make any new No. 6 posts anymore, that there’s no new content and that all major and minor artists of the fandom have moved on. I’m sorry but that just sounded to me as if there’s nothing good left and as if everything concerning the fandom is doomed. It was my own personal feeling concerning your post, because it just sounded like one of the “old = good” vs. “new = bad” posts. I never wanted to blame or hurt you.

Of course you’re allowed to miss your old friends and it’s allowed to feel sad because of them, but please don’t make it sound as if there aren’t any other people left. There are others who are still there and that other people replied to it just shows that they also took it down the wrong pipe. But that’s not the end of the world. Just like yuneyn said, we can talk calmly about this stuff. I don’t know what exactly happened in the past, so that you don’t want to post your own opinion anymore… It must have traumatized you a lot. We didn’t want to do something like that to you. You and thesexymaid are like little idols in the fandom and a lot of people are looking up to you. So you have a lot of influence, just like yuneyn said, even if you didn’t want it at all. It’s not always easy and not all people agree with you. I know you wanted your dash free of conflict, but when you live it’s something you can’t always avoid. In the end it’s just important to find a solution that’s ok for everyone… because it’s like thesexymaid said: The fandom is not just the two of you. But you’re important to the fandom. Back then, I’ve told you several times that I really appreciate what you’re doing with the sourcing matter…

And you two are a huge source of motivation for a lot of them.

It was never my intention to complain because you’re not reblogging my stuff. I also didn’t want more attention or whatever.  It just happened to be this post. But there were more posts like that in the past.

And I know that you and others also tried to change something in the fandom. And also that it’s hard and tiring, and a nearly impossible task, but I’m still willed to plan stuff when other people help me and I don’t have to do everything all alone, because in the end everyone feels overlooked and forced to do something they don’t want to do. That’s why we’ve started the forum in the first place… so that all people can decide together and tell their opinions, even though it’s sometimes necessary to compromise. All I ever wanted was that the fandom grows together. That’s what we all wanted for sure.

Ok, and something else…

Of course it’s also like iwatch-theworld said… of course you can’t expext that people notice you when you start doing stuff. I experiemenced that, too and I always kept trying and working and working and nothing but working. :)  Not only here… I did this my entire life. (For example… I needed years until I got one of my doujins published here…and that’s just the fun stuff…) That’s what you have to do when you start something new… no matter where or what… here, on youtube, on deviantart… Nothing comes from nothing. But I also understand it when you always try hard and no one notices you and you barely get feedback. ^^ And I mean that in general and everywhere, I don’t mean that in relation to elanra or thesexymaid… It just happened to be like that in this fandom, since they are so popular. And this weird “senpai, notice me” - system on this site doesn’t help at all. So yeah, everyone has to work hard and try it again and again.

Fuuuu! o_o That was a hard request… all in one! Ferris wheel, enjoying the view (yeah they enjoy the view of each other XD), talking at the same time and then in a format fitting for a mobile phone. X’D Well, I hope it’s what you imagined, at least to some extent. Probably not, since I don’t know what you’ve imagined. ^^° But here you go. Hope this is okay with you.

Hmmm, some sketchy stuff I’ve drawn. Nothing special, though, just some doodles. Mostly when I was talking to my grandma. But well, I thought I could upload it. Otherwise it would just rot in the depths of my computer.
