Ok...so...this is weird because I almost never post anything in my journal....But this is basically a rant about MMD because I have been increasingly disappointed by many of its users and felt as though I wanted to share my feelings with someone. If you don't feel like reading, I don't blame you XD....Anyway, here I go...

So something has been bothering me lately about the vocaloid community, the MMD community in particular. When I first discovered MMD, I thought the idea of animating the characters was so cool. I loved the models that came with the program, and was excited when I found out you could download other models and import them. There were so many options! I actually wondered if there was a way to create models, since I've always loved character creator type games. When I found out about PMD editor, I was extremely excited, and even though it took me many tries to actually get it working, it was totally worth it. In the beginning, even just recoloring the models was fun. As I discovered more things I wanted to make, I learned more ways to do it. I made lots of models that I never even showed anyone, and then one day, after seeing that many people were posting and sharing the models they'd created, got the idea to do the same. I made a set of Higurashi models and posted a video on youtube of them. I never expected anyone to actually want them, so that was a surprise to me. I knew they were glitchy though. I hadn't made them to be distributed, I'd only created them because I thought it was fun. That was why I didn't want to give out such glitchy models. A lot of people offered to help me fix them, but no one has actually been successful, so I suspect that most of those people only offered because they wanted me to send them the models. Sure, that's slightly irksome but who cares really? What did they get out of it? A few crappy models? And is that hurting me? No, not really. This is why I get extremely confused when people have huge arguments over someone editing a model without the maker's permission or anything like that. Yes, I understand that its annoying but I become slightly disgusted when I see a huge feud over such a miniscule problem. People have just become so petty. It seems like many model makers are actually creating models JUST for the sake of having their models become popular, which in my opinion is absolutely ridiculous. What is the point of making models if its only for other people? MMD used to be for fun, and I miss that. When I realized that people actually wanted the models I was making, I started to learn physics so I could make them less glitchy. I was really flattered that anyone would want models I had made, but that was just a bonus. Still to this day, I make models for myself. I'm once again, extremely flattered by requests but to be honest I'm much more likely to get a request done quickly (or at all) if it's one I find interesting and fun. It might sound selfish, but I just don't see the point of only creating models for other people. I'm finding more and more superficiallity in the MMD community and it is extremely disappointing to me. I wish model makers would stop being so petty. I wish experienced MMD users wouldn't act so condescending toward new users, since we were all new once. Basically, I wish everyone would stop the politics and just be kind to eachother. MMD is a fun program and everyone should just enjoy it.
