Hello Freedom! Family, I'm LW and the new Freedom! Forums Administrator! Let's talk a bit about the Future of the Forums. Please read through the whole thread, I will show you what I will be working on to help you grow your channels! ★ How I see the Forums I have for a long time seen the Forums as a great place to help aspiring creators learn about and grow on YouTube, whether that be through deep discussions about new YouTube Features, getting direct Feedback on their channels and even promoting their content. I believe that Forums like these are vital for creators who want to start out and learn what to do as well as find others sharing the same passion for creating content. I myself came here when I had my small YouTube channel and found help and inspirations and great people to talk to. It helped me find motivation for growing my channel and helping others which is definitely what I want to preserve. ★ The Future of the Forums Now let's not hide that there has not been much happening around here for a fair amount of time. A lot of creators had a hard time finding motivation after new YouTube rules and a bunch of our members and Forum Team went on with their lives. I've been watching over the Forums quietly for a while and now have decided to take matters into my own hands. I am planning to bring this site back to its former glory to turn it into a place that can help you grow your channel and find interesting people to collaborate with. For that I will need your help: Let me know what you would like to see from the Forums and what you would be interested in! My current plans are to: Create ways for streamers to promote their channels as they go live Let you share your content in ways people (and search engines) can discover it Bring back the FFF, Newsletter and introduce some new series Let you get Feedback on your channel and direct advice on what to improve (as I've been doing over on Discord) Reward your interesting Discussions and Forum Activity (Member of the Month? ) Give you resources to improve your content And A LOT more... I am actually meaning this. I really want to help you grow and make this Forum a great place! If you have any comments, suggestions, ideas, requests, etc. either reply to this thread or send me a message here and I will consider it, no matter how impossible it may sound. My goal is to listen to your requests and do what's best for the community! Thank you so much for reading through my ramblings, let's grow together! ~ LW Also a quick shoutout to @George for giving me the opportunity to help the Forums become a great place again!
