From 2009 to 2013 I went on hiatus from Youtube. There were a few reasons for this happening; One of the major factors being a hard-drive crash which wiped nearly all of my REMusical base content. It took a long time for me embrace the change and seeing it as a way to improve myself. I also had my college art projects and studies to focus on during that time.

However, there was another reason I needed a break that I wasn't very vocal about. Truth was, I felt the Youtube community surrounding my videos had become excessively negative over time. What started out as something simple and fun had slowly transformed into a mess of drama and cruelty. Stalkers, rumors, thieves and the like only seemed to become more vile and tenacious. That's not to say there was no support or positivity; But I felt so overwhelmed by the growing hatred, spiteful rumors and rude demands that it was often hard to see anything from the positive side of things.

Now onto what I'd really like to talk about: The here and now. Ever since I've made my full return to Youtube, I've been overwhelmed again. Not by hatred and negativity... But because of how amazing you all have been with me and my animations. I've have so many wonderful comments and messages; Reminiscing the older videos, sharing personal stories, endless support, sincere appreciation, maturity and patience. It's like a complete turn-around and I can't thank you guys enough for having so much positive influence!

Maybe it's just my new perception on things, maybe most of the negative individuals left Youtube, or even grew and matured as individuals. Whatever it is, all I know is that I've been having just as great a time on Youtube now as I did before any of the negativity and drama. You've all been absolutely awesome and totally disprove the "stupid YT commenter" stigma. On the contrary, people have been polite, mature and honest, even with controversial opinions and discussions. So again, thank you all so much for being such a positive, outgoing bunch. Making videos is fun on my own time, but it's you guys who make being on Youtube fun!

Apologies to those who are confused or don't follow Youtube;
This message is intended for anyone who misses Youtube/Google+ posts

It was awesome to see you back on youtube.

But knowing that you enjoy it so much, and partially thanks to your fan, makes it even better.

 

Keep up the good work Leggy, we'll never let you down.

See, give it some time and the trolls will go away to troll and shitstorm on someone else ;-)
Great to hear you are doing well again back on YT :w00t:
I wish I could be there, but my Youtube days are over ( due to PC troubles & stuff ).
But should I ever get this piece of scrap work properly again and not hang itself on the first sign of a video, your page will be the first thing I'll pay a visit to :D

It's a possibility! I do like to hope that maybe instead they actually matured once they moved on.

Shame about the PC though, hopefully it'll work someday or you can get a new one! Youtube's changed in a lot of other ways though... dat layout. Urgh.

Fortunately I've met a couple! I've gotten some sincere e-mails from people apologizing for past immaturity and it was really nice to see.

Yeah it's all good! The blatant cruelty has taken a back seat and then some to all the current positivity.

Yeah if you get hate, ignore em... On my 3ds where I draw my pictures, colors 3d, I had some guy randomly hating all my newest stuff for some reason...not sure why...but after ignoring him, he finally left me alone...

But it's cool seeing your new videos and those because your old videos were good and you can see the improvements you got on your newest videos :3

Nowadays that's normally what I do. I'd only reply if the individual seems to be grossly misinformed about something or was basing their thoughts on a rumor in hopes to correct them. If they already made up their mind though, then there's no need to waste anymore time with them. But yeah most cases ignoring is definitely the better choice.

I really appreciate that! Thank you :)

No worries, the very few that I get anymore I do not take very personally, if at all.
