Honestly quite shocked that Morito Chisaki isn't higher on the Japanese polls :o

^ Maria isn't very high either which is surprising? I thought she was super popular. Course, I don't know where this poll made the rounds.

I don't get how people can bash Hello Online and that Krusha so much but still use it.
Hello Online is literally the boyfriend that says he'll change but never does.

Also its amazing how much of an impact Amped has had on most of the international fandom.
Besides the occasional weird comments, your commitment to HP is something I respect. おつかれ Amped.

H!O fucking sucks though, it always has and it always will. I've never used it much, it's useless with the tracker gone and the picboard never working properly.

JPlop's just kinda dying, honestly it's the least awful H!P forum out there -- but that doesn't mean much :lol:.

Seems like finalist voting has come out: https://goo.gl/forms/9oQMbwWYR8qySmt73

There's a few j-plop names here, but not a lot, as expected.

Someone nominated me for being a Sakura fan.

I’m so embarrassed.

Starra, what do you mean dying, just the lack of member activity?

Amped is very protective of the girls and some people can't get passed it. That's it. He's done a lot for the fandom and people need to accept it, it's so disrespectful to call him "That guy on Jplop" or "a" because they refuse to use his name because they don't like him. It's HIS information, regardless if you like him or not, use his damn name.

I hear a lot of stories about Krusha's general disdain for H!P and there's some pretty good people on H!O I wish would just come here. I don't think Jplop is dying, it's just people either forget about it or just lurk for news. TBH some of us make that barrier to entry super scary, I've seen a few people chased off the forums for tiny mistakes. Also, forums are becoming obsolete slowly in general with Reddit and Discord being a thing. The fact we're so active is a marvel.

Also I'm a finalist WTF. I'm a big Haruna fan (THE BIGGEST) but I didn't think anyone you know... knew that... I DID IT FOR YOU HARUNAN. I DID IT FOR YOU.

ahaha Starra is there for Maimai. Which is fitting, she deserves to win that one.

I voted for all jplop people and kept to forum people generally.

^ In regard's to Amp's name, it's not because people refuse to use his name. The mods/admin (Krusha and Turbo) blacklisted/blocked his name so it wouldn't appear on HO's forums. You would get a warning any time you tried to use it and multiple warnings would result in a ban.

Wait a second, I am confused. Is there something on H!O other than Ro-kun's translations of pocket morning?

Henkka run WotaInTranslation and there's quite a few users there who are translators themselves, but they usually only work with blog posts and such.

boinsie nominated me for that (thanks, btw, boinsie - I think I forgot to actually reply to your tweet! :thumbs-up:) :lol:. Also I'm pretty much the only Maimai fan so hey :fear:...

I talked with the organiser on Twitter and they're mad that people are calling them out because it's meant to be in good fun and it doesn't matter so people shouldn't get upset and like... that's true but you can't exactly control those feelings and the brain isn't exactly logical when it comes to emotions so people are going to feel like shit anyway. I myself don't give a fuck because it means nothing, but like... man. I dunno. It just seems like all it'll do is create drama between groups of friends where someone cares too much or whatever.

I don't think people should get like... triggered over it, but the criticism that we don't need "popularity contests" in the fandom is a valid argument. As long as they walk the line of keeping it light it's not the biggest deal. We'll have to see how people who aren't the creators handle it. Like "Biggest Momusu fan" could actually cause some controversy but as long as people don't freak out about it, they aren't doing anything wrong. I'm more worried about the people taking the poll, then I am the creators of it, tbh.

And if I'm a finalist:

HELLO LURKERS AND JPLOP MEMBERS. Please consider me for Harunan fan 2k18

Oh yeah, I agree that nobody's done anything "wrong", as such. It's just that humans are humans, and people are going to feel negative emotions over things like this even if they're not exactly warranted. I have a couple of friends on Twitter who are feeling a bit shit about it, and they have no real reason to, but that doesn't mean that they can't feel that way.

The people having fun can have fun so long as they're aware that not everyone is, imo.
