    Just a few questions i thought of in my brain. 1.If Micheal Afton became purple guy in Sister Location and that springtrap cut scene begins with "father, its me Micheal" wont that make Micheal Afton Springtrap? 2. If thats true than the purple guy in FNaF 3 breaking the robots couldve been Micheal trying to undo what his father did. By breaking the Animitronics he freed their souls but they thought he was William.

    I'm really scared about this mess. I'm new to creating a channel, it's not very big and I don't think I can do anything to grow because of this, I don't think ANYONE who's starting out can grow after this. And when I opened this video and it looked like he was on the verge of tears the entire time, I almost cried. I want to delete my account just so I don't pay any money I don't have. I'm graduated from high school, and I don't have a job, how am I supposed to pay JPreporter, let alone COLLEGE? I just want to cry... What do we do?

    I'm not surprised that JPreporter doesn't push gaming content, it's basically pepole watching other people consume a product, and while some gamers provide meaningful commentary, discussion or criticism, I can't think of a reason to really push that sort of thin. How are you supposed to market it? I guess you could compare it to political channels where people talk about someone else's claims or posts. It's something a lot of people consume, but it's not exactly marketable. , people are alread yreally into it and I believe that it's largely watched by children and teenagers who don't have much money themselves. People who like to watch games find their content easily enough if the community's popularity says anything about it.

    Sai Wong2 時間 前

    A suggestion, since JPreporter has a way to sweep videos to search out "kid friendly" videos. Couldn't JPreporter creators manually trigger a sweep of their new videos before they upload them to the platform and accept the results as to whether the video is kid friendly or not. If FTC and JPreporter work together to agree on the sweep algorithm and accept how it categories each video, then videos manually swept cannot be fined. This takes away the need for JPreporter creators to guess if their videos are kid friendly or not. A manual sweep will make that determination for them. If the JPreporter creator disagrees with determination they can edit their video and resubmit it another manual sweep.

    I get the fact that they're trying to keep kids safe from the crap that some people post on JPreporter(especially the well-disguised crap), but the thing is, they can only go so far. The responsibility SHOULD be on the PARENTS to help guide their children away from bad content. Instead, however, a lot of parents DON'T, so therefore the government has to step in and try to legislate morality. And THAT is ALWAYS a bad idea.
