    Hello! I've been using UTAU since like 2011, but officially publishing works since 2013...Well, I really loved (and still love) UTAU and its voices and characters; Even when there were things that would turn me down, I got positive and got over it. When I joined Utaforum in...2015 I think, I really fell in love with the website and the people here. Everyone is very special, and I'd list everyone I consider a friend here, but the list would be veeeeeery long. Really, I am not trying to be cute nor anything, it is really how I feel XD
    However lately a few things happened, while some are fair motives for me leaving UTAU, some are rather childish, but even so, that is how I feel, and I cant deny it.

    1. YouTube Community in General
    -
    Youtube is a very important thing for the UTAU community; I admit my works were very shit before, but nowadays I consider my work really good overall, but curiously I've been receiving more and more negative comments, regarding my tuning, video making, voice choices, etc and etc. It seems that my improvement doesnt have the same meaning for others. This wasnt so bad before, but eh, it just keeps getting worse and starting to affect me.

    2. I accidentally kind of started an UTAU "war"
    -That was funny at the start, but got boring, upsetting and make me feel guilty...and I indirectly am. Short story, on 2014 I reprinted a video by Boota (youtube]Li-lL_WIA-E) and I and another user translated the names. We have mistranslated a few names, notice this is important for this "story". A few time after this video was uploaded, and some other covers by me as well, a lot of users started uploading covers with most of the UTAU featured on video (and they were really unknown). Well, that was great...if it wasnt the fact that if you check some of these on Youtube and Twitter you'll notice people saying "I discovered this UTAU"; I know they have watched my video and knew their UTAU from it because they used the mistranslations of my video. Well, i found it funny at first, and was happy for helping spreading new UTAU; However, as time passed, it made me feel bad, because it seems everyone else "discovered" these UTAU and on Twitter there was even a fight on this matter (still using my mistranslations).

    3. Meru Melodic (WARNING: Salty, Whiny and Childish text here)
    -This may sound stupid, but like above, everyone started using Meru Melodic's VB (mistranslated by me and spread as Melodic Meru) this year. However I clearly remember back on 2014, everytime I used Meru Melodic and published a work with him I'd receive negative comments on his voice. Almost nobody liked Meru Melodic. But this year Isada Yusukke (Meru Melodic's owner and voicer) went more active on the fandom, and now everyone loves Meru Melodic. And guess what? I am on the blue. Yeah...I admit I have the defect to attach to some of those UTAU characters more than I should, but even so...

    4. Tuning
    -Before starting this part, I want to give a big thanks to @kimchi-tan for helping me improve on tuning and on UTAU overall. Thanks for leading me your time and knowledge, friend.
    Another short story: I tuned UTAU, but I tuned like shit until last year, more or less, so okay, that wasnt a bad thing. But attached to what I said above, I receive more negative comments on my tuning now that I do better than I have never received before. And they are not constructive critics, they are comments like "Quit UTAU", "You tune like shit", "Cilia do better"...*sigh*

    5. Real Life
    -Isnt sad as the reasons above, nor a problem at all, it is just cause I get busier and busier, and cant spend much more time on UTAU.

    Conclusion
    -
    I will stop doing UTAU related work (covers at least). I dunno if it will be an hiatus or a definitive quit, but I wont be doing much more...I wont lie, this post is not only a farewell but also a way to bring your attention to how I feel and how other people feel about UTAU community overall, specially topics 1, 2 and 4.
    I will be finishing my last works, and after that I am done. On my Youtube channel I will delete (almost) all the videos I have, beside a few ones (UST releases, VB releases, tutorials, 1 or 2 covers).
    ------------------
    Well, the other works I will be finishing:

    -My Favourite VOCALOID Song Medley KAI cover (Endless WIP, I progress day by day XD )
    -Britney Spears covers PV~Blair, Dill and piggy (Big thanks to @Kiyoteru for helping with the video)
    -Secret Project~Toxic cover
    -Release my Piano UTAU
    -A few MMD model edits (Miko and Rano, my endless WIPs since 2015)
    -Release my Hikari Yamico UTAU (I need time to oto, WIP since 2016)

    PS. Wont retire my VBs and wont retire my account here (I will still login and enter chat :D )

    It's really awful to hear that some people can be so terrible and demotivating like that. I'm truly sorry to hear you've had to put up with that and I'd like to punch every one of those commenters in the face .

    While I'm relieved to hear you're still completing some works, not retiring your banks, releasing another UTAU and keeping your account here, it does sadden me to hear you're not only not going to make more UTAU work but also deleting what you've done. Your progress, your hard work, results that stand as signs of your improvement regardless of what some little lifeless pricks rude people say. I dont think that's the right move and I wish you would reconsider, but I'm not going to nag you.

    I'm really glad you're still here at the very least, and would like you to know that no matter what you do, be it just hang around in the chat or make something again, me and many others here will warmly welcome and support you.

    Thank you for all you've made so far, I for one, have really loved your work.

    ❤​

    Thank you very much for your kind word <3 Make me feel really better ><

    I will delete some of those works from Youtube anyway, the amount of negative comments really make me sad...But I may think about it; Like I said, I will keep the most recent and important ones :smile:

    I want to come here more often, however class and job hunting takes times orz Anyway, Utaforum was like the first (and only so far) community that worked for me, I really love this place.

    Again thank you very much, Soh <3 You are so nice ^^' Thank you!

    That's a shame. You don't deserve to be bashed by anybody; in fact, nobody does! I hope things go well for you in the future.
