Welp ProJared's career on the internet is now forever destroyed.

ProJared going under was jarring because he was to a lot of people who only knew him for his content, a fairly laid back and decent guy. It was the same gut punch that JewWario fans had recently.

I know, right? Especially the JewWario thing, even now I still can't get over it, my perceptions and reality keep clashing...

Shit like that is why I prefer fiction to reality most of the time...

People still actually get married? Why?

Seriously, has a dick pics ever worked? In the entire history of humanity, has a dick pic ever worked?

I'm led to understand that it works on men.

*EDIT* but yeah, I would be much more sympathetic towards this behaviour if woman were anything but repulsed by it.

If the entire sex is disgusted by your genitals, either go gay or just give up and embrace the advances in modern sex-toy technology. Yay for silicone!

Well, it's not that simple as them being repulsed by our genitals. It's being attracted to them when attached to the whole package of a person.

And yeah, people still get married. Tried for a better part of a decade, didn't work out.

This is really shitty, and he's living up to the "alienhead shit kid" comment, but I doubt it's a career-ender. Oh yeah, he'll lose his friends and fanbase. But if recent history proves anything, he'll find an all new group of fans and friends very soon.

Kwak:

It's fancy and stuff. And you get to be the centre of attention for a day. Alternatively, religion.

Also, he's dropped to about 845K subscribers. I wonder if he can lose 200K in a week?

Cause the legality of marriage is really important, especially if your partner dies and their family are shitty people.

We got married in order to get her on the dental insurance I had from work. We never did get her name changed, so me and the daughter have my last name, but my wife doesn't.

I don't if ProJared going to the embraced by "ralt ight" section of the internet. He made a comment one about wanting more female fans and his mistress fits the "bright haired tumblr girl" look so that would be insane if does that level of 180.

Smooths out a lot of legal complications (e.g. next of kin rights). That's the main reason my wife and I are married: it's not like official government verification was ever going to make any difference to how we felt about each other.

Page 1 of this thread kinda missed the mark as these past few days unfolded. I really don't see this blowing over at this rate. His career is pretty much dead and buried.

I won't call it dead until he releases new content and we see how well it does. He's lost nearly 200,000 subscribers and will likely never get any sort of professional collaboration or sponsorships again but if his YouTube and Twitch views hold up he could still be okay, as he still has over 800,000 YouTube subs. He will never recover from this though, and since he hasn't released a video on his main channel for 4 months if he keeps going it won't be nearly as profitable for him as it used to. And good riddance

Its always hard to tell because the internet is pretty weird about this. You would think channel awesome would be spiked forever, but the reality is they're basically surviving - they may not be thriving but according to this subcount shit I just looked up, they're better than they were prior to the latest thing.

Honestly I think it depends on who the youtubers actual audience is, and whether they even interact with the portion of the internet that's flipping out, and it can be super hard to line those up. Its pretty easy to think that since something is a big deal to you, or hits on a name brand issue, others must automatically care, but even ten years is enough to completely change a persons perceptions and ranking of important issues.

The worst example of that I ever saw was the nymag writing on pewdiepie and decrying that his audience weren't leaving him in spite of the many articles it and other traditional media organizations had written about how not cool he was. All I could think about is the fact that the demo of nymag is 18-59, centered on 30 with most of their writers around there. What 12 year old gives a fuck what a 30 year old thinks, and how did a 30 year old managed to delude himself into believing he was going to be able to sway the middle school demo.

Yeah his Sonic Adventure 2 review was his far older content. And he was very ameture back then. I personally think he started getting better by his review of Super Mario 64.

In my case he's fun to listen to as background.

In one of his earlier videos he did say he wasn't quite sure if he really knew what his style was just yet. It was right around when his videos started using his latest and previous intro song where he started adding more humour to his videos, maybe even a little before that. With the right game he's a bit more interesting than the slog that was Hey You Pikachu. I like him a lot for his voice, no over-dramatic BS stuff like other YouTubers have, and he's just, as you said, down to earth. His reviews are sorta uninteresting in comparison to other's if you go by pure entertainment value, but I think that's what I like about his stuff. He doesn't have some "gimmick" to try and stand out. He just does, in my opinion, simple but quality work that you can tell he's proud of.

Edit: Oh yeah, and I agree his voice is great for background stuff. Very easy to settle into a chill game with his content, like maybe Breath of the Wild or Stardew Valley

Shame. I never watched him regularly and wasn't a subscriber. But I watched and enjoyed his playthrough of Illusion of Time/Gaia as it was one of my favourite games as a kid. Shame he turned out to be a rubbish person.

Hmmm, 20% of his followers. Coincidentally the same percentage that another internet personality lost recently. Though James Charles (some beauty vlogger) lost 3 million of his 15 mil total, so his loss is greater in absolute numbers. Makes me wonder if there's a trend. Internet personality is revealed to be a shitty person? 20% loss in followers, or whatever the average percentage actually is.

For the James Charles guy, never heard of him, but it sounds like that barely made a dent in his profits. Meaning, he still makes a lot of money off his content. For me, people like that won't get real loss unless they're channel is taken down or they did something illegal. But ever since the incident with Logan Paul (who only pretends to learn humility and still doing the same shit), but shows the big wigs that own that site won't do a damn thing, because these content creators provide too much money. Seriously, fuck google and YouTube.

Probably not. You often see people say that being successful and rich does not give someone license to be a dick, but for all intents and purposes, it does. I have little doubt that James Charles dude will land on his feet, what with being rich and enough of a big deal to attend the MET Gala and all.

To be honest, I really only mentioned him to have an excuse to post his picture.

I know it has no bearing on anything, but look at that Jojo's Bizarre Adventure character!

The way the boots sit on the monocolour floor and the angle the pants make with them gives me a super unpleasant feeling that she's actually leaning back at like 30 degrees, and when she straightens she'll be 8 feet tall with super stretched propotions.

How... Do.... YOU... LIKEMENOOOOOOWWW

She? That's a dude.

Jarrito3001:
This saddens me I was big fan of ProJared and this situation is all kinds of fucked up. Though as for a career ender probably but I will perturbed cause many have done worse. I mean ChannelAwesome is till running,JonTron is still making videos and Pewdiepie can suck a childs innards live and Logan Paul is still making money. So I will give the side eye if cheating on your marriage which is bad no doubt is something that going to kill a career.

What

I don't get this kind of thing

And by this kind of thing I mean this bizarre comparison thing

And I say bizarre because... Why do you side eye them if this ends his career? If you think they should be angrier at the other people why aren't you side eyeing them already?

Like can't you individually decide if each thing is worthy of people dropping them, why is it some kind of comparison?

... Huh. At first I was kinda going that way with the shirt but then I was like "nah, even if its one malfunction away from a misdemeanor offense lady gaga has worn so much weirder".

Kwak:

I'm engaged and I'm still not sure I've entirely figured that one out. =p

Actually waiting for her wedding band to be shipped right now (it's made by the same folks as her engagement ring and designed to stack neatly with it, got them both on sale). The engagement ring is a center sapphire with some diamond chips to the sides and the wedding band has little alternating diamonds and sapphires in it. Both in white gold. We want to get a white gold band with a small sapphire set in it for me (so that the rings look like they belong together), but that kind of thing is much harder to find in men's bands.

We're speeding up our time frame because she's changing jobs and her new job has couples insurance that is much cheaper for better coverage than what either of us has now. To the point that the difference in insurance cost almost covers the drop in pay by itself. For a job that she's much better suited to.

Subs may be misleading: inevitably a lot of them will be "dormant" - moved on, either from that channel without bothering to unsubscribe, or even from YouTube more generally. Most YouTubers I view regularly have several times as many subscribers as they do watches on the average video.

If we were to make an assumption that 2/3rds of a channel's subscribers are minimally or not engaged, then losing a fifth of subscribers is extremely bad news, as it would actually suggest over half the most active audience has departed. That'll causes a massive loss of presence. It may also be very hard to build momentum back up: 15 minutes of fame and all that means that people are easily replaceable once their fans have moved on.

You can find a jewellery designer and tell them what you want: the two (three) of you can thrash out a design. We went to a local indy jeweller for this: it's our general idea of what we wanted, but with the jeweller's characteristic style. Not costly either: she sourced second hand gems and the design charge was trivial (<5%) compared to the materials & labour cost.

I expect he has a lot of court proceedings and legal issues getting in the way of his Youtube career right now.

Also its all very gross. Never was a fan (saw him in some collaborations but never followed over to his channel) but I empathize with fans who were blindsided.

Just out of curiosity, there IS evidence he did these horrible things, right? And we're not all just jumping to conclusions?

CrazyGirl17:

Yes. There is evidence he cheated on his wife. There is evidence he solicited nudes, and (sadly, for my own eyes) there is evidence of dick pics he sent to fans.

Kwak:

It still carries a certain amount of legal weight (e.g. if you die without a will, your unmarried partner isn't necessarily your next of kin; if you're married they are by default).

CrazyGirl17:

From what I heard, they were having a "polyamorous" relationship which the wife called off part way through but he disputes that and there's the he said she said thing regarding this, though both agree that at a time they both cheated on eachother before the debated calling off of polyamory by the wife.

Though the part about the tumblr nudes sounds legit yeah. (have not looked into this myself, seeing a dude in sailor mercury cosplay is not exactly my thing XD)

I remember hearing about a youtubebr visiting kids on their deathbed from cancer as their last wish or something along those lines.

And you thought kids dying of cancer couldn't get sadder lol.

Though on a more serious note, this is prolly a generational thing so I try to have an open mind, since I know people who think of videogames as being similarly frivolous due to being simply older.
