Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Yes it's sad news. I didn't know phandom mom personally, but remember the picture of her meeting Dan and Phil and that will stay with me. The family launched a gofundme campaign to help with the costs of the funeral, a link is on the twitter page of phandom mom if you're interested. Odd. I took Dan'...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I believe it's been already talked about here that they're not really giving many signals about continuing the d&p brand. I wonder how the big portion of the fanbase is gonna react to that (imo, not very positively). Welcome to the forum ;) Interesting remarks. It's getting to that point that the k...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Amen. A bit of an ironic snear to social media from a man who has his incredible wealth and freedom as a result of it, but I love that he's pointing out some of the shallowness of this time.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Yup. You can deny it all day long but the retreat from youtube has been clear since the start of 2018. Doesn't seem like anything is coming in the place after the end of the II era. Maybe it's for the best. This fandom is past its expiration date. If you think that, perhaps it means that your prese...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Hm that doesn't look like a mere coincidence anymore. I found the deep discounts a bit odd from the start. Thomas Sanders changing from IRL, Martyn and Cornelia having plenty of stuff going on in their own life... My best guess is that there's either something changing with place they are using for ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

It might not be the best bet but I'll take it if the odds are right. If you give me 10:000 to one, I fancy my chances of finding a 15 year old who is more mature than a 25 year old and for one particular case it might just work out ;) But I certainly agree that generally an audience so young would b...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I think they feel ambivalent towards their audience. So both things can be true. They could be both appreciative of their audience and wanting to keep it, but also wanting to change it and feel at odds with it at times. I haven't seen anyone saying they "100% dislike the current fandom". That's quit...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

That does sound like fun. I like both "silly" and "serious" content myself.
i'm not intending to make an argument out of any of this but clarifying my position in case somebody wanted to imply that I'm saying all kinds of things about Dan and Phil's teen audience which I don't.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I detect a little bit of irony in your post, so let me clarify some things that may be (willingly?) misunderstood when I talk about Dan and Phil having a young teen audience and the limits that brings. There is nothing one can say about one particular person who follows Dan and Phil. One young perso...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

It’s amazing that nobody has connected proof of the boys not being able to do what they want with what’s going on right now. It’s being married to YouTube which is killing their potential, and it’s worrying about the lowest common denominator that gives us crap like Phil running the modern equivale...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I've generally got a strong dislike to fandoms. The very idea of "fans" and celebrity imply some form of idolatry, which runs counter to my strong egalitarian and humanistic principles. The social dynamics at work in these online communities are also at times deplorable. So it's quite ironic that i...

Re: A Note on Forum Safety and Comfort

Thanks for the reply. I disagree that you could not attempt to more clearly define grounds on which a user can report a post. This doesn't have to be an exhaustive list that covers all possible situations. Much like is the case with the forum rules, you could use some broad concepts like "being resp...

Yea just checked when the last AP vid was uploaded. It was on 21 march... which makes it 24 days if he uploads today. I already lost my bet yesterday, but i'm redoubling on today. Surely he'll try avoid breaking the sacred month barrier :sideeye: ? I'm looking forward to this Q&A more than the previ...

I'm secretly hoping for Dan to travel the world with Adrian for 6 months, keeping a daily travel vlog where he talks about his journey of self-discovery and where he lifts the veil on an autobiographical novel he's working on. All while introducing us to his own poetry and sharing his most deeply he...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Looks like moving hill is ready to cave in. I'm more excited about this video than i have been for one of Phil's vids in a pretty long time, mostly because i hope (expect?) him to divulge at least a little bit of information of the state of the hiatus, or possible future plans. Or maybe it's just 15...
