This is a text about the UTAU fandom.. and basically how to get famous with UTAU.
I'm writing this because I'm tired of people neglecting VERY good UTAUs just because they don't have the greatest art in the world.
I'm also writing this because I think we need to pay attention to all the UTAU users, and not just the ones who happen to draw well. When you see someone struggling with UTAU, don't just walk away because of their artwork - be nice and help them. We're a big family here!
So lately there's been a lot of new UTAUs popping up, and I can't not notice that people have been popping up as "new, famous" users as well. The problem for me is.. the UTAUs with the greatest artwork become famous, whilst the UTAUs with "regular" art or art that "does not look as good" are being neglected! I really don't think that's fair.
If we all start out with our UTAUs, some piece of artwork and then a song which we upload to YouTube, then why aren't we all famous? A lot of people like UTAUs because of their art - not the actual voices. If you upload a video with a "crappy" UTAU and have great art, people will come to you sooner or later to help you with your oto.ini, recordings etc. They'll do all the work for you, basically - are you with me so far? .n.
If you do NOT have great art, people will see your UTAU as "one in the massive group that is n00b UTAUs". You probably will have to do all the work yourself, and if you don't get some great art soon your UTAU won't get noticed until you do!
It's a beauty contest and I'm kind of sick of it.. I mean, UTAU IS about voices, NOT art! We should all try to help other UTAU creators equally. I've helped a lot of people this past time because of this, and I have to say it's nice to see the result! :3
So if we want to have a big happy overseas UTAU family, let's all pitch in and help the n00bs, wether their art is awesome or not. Artwork does not make one's UTAU awesome, remember that and help other people. Explain what an oto.ini is, give them advice and feedback - we were all n00bs and you all know that it'd be great if someone could just stand up and help us for a bit :3
My point is, don't neglect UTAUs just because of how they look or how they're drawn. And don't help people just because of their art either. If you feel like helping someone you should do it, but if you're just doing it for you 15sek of fame, then don't bother. We'll end up with yet another UTAU everyone admires and supports for no good reason other than the artwork!!
I think everyone should pay attention to this. We can't just neglect others because they don't draw BISHIESHOJODESU-great, right? Everyone has a good chance in our community and we have to give it to all of them o3o Don't judge the book by it's cover, eh? ^^
NOTE: I'm not writing this from my own perspective, it's just what I've seen all too often. The "neglecting" has never happened to me, on the contrary I was the one everyone wanted to help, and it irritates me. And someone pointed out "why don't you help people out then HM, since you complain about it? >:U", listen closely - I help people whenever I can. I draw art for people a lot, and I promote other people's UTAUs a LOT through a lot of means if I think they really deserve it. My point here is, don't complain about me or accuse me of anything, since you don't know me you look kind of dumb :/
