It sucks to see that this was why Jon was fired. Nobody should act like this and think it's okay because it's not, AT ALL. I'm glad prpl and phweffie came forward to share their experiences and be able to take that weight they'd been holding on their shoulders for who knows how long. Now let me go back to the statement I made in the original topic
I still agree with most of the points I made in the original topic, as the past two months have shown that TTV was able to benefit from this greatly, as they went back to being just a group of friends having fun on a podcast instead of a full-blown business and have even expanded a bit with the addition of deadmatoro and the return of Kini. I also feel the changing of the guard in terms of the moderators (which was unrelated to all of these events) helped usher in this new post-Jon era of TTV. However, one thing I would change is the second sentence of the first paragraph to "Hopefully, he gets the help he needs, as I think that would be best for everyone involved in this horrible situation" as nobody outside of TTV knew the severity of the issues at the time.
To end off my somewhat rambling post, I leave you all with the tweet(s) I posted regarding this new chapter of TTV:
And so a new chapter of the TTV Channel legacy officially begins. While the last chapter did not begin or end on the greatest terms and will probably never be forgotten, it feels good to know that this new chapter provides a fresh start to those involved in this story and gives the future of the story a new and interesting look with new characters joining the fray and old ones returning. The end of this previous chapter came as a surprise to everyone outside of the story, however, it could not have been completed without the courage of prpldragon and phweffie coming forward. If anybody was to be considered the heroes of this chapter, it would have to be them. And for that, I say thank you for doing what you did. I also feel very honored and privileged to be a part of this new chapter as a part of the new mod squad and hope to be a part of this ever developing story for the foreseeable future.
Onwards and Upwards,
