Just wanna pay my respects before it’s too late. I already gave my thoughts on the site as a whole in the zine thread, so here’s a quote from yours truly:
“YouChew was a great place to be online before it closed its doors. My three years on the site had gifted me with many friendships and many great times. I got to discuss various topics with likeminded people and got to have fun playing various games with those same people. The user base was very friendly and accepting of me and others and the sense of community was like nothing else I had experienced before.
If I ever need to look back on my middle school years sometime in the future, I believe nothing will get me nostalgic for that time period more than YouChew. I had gotten into YouTube Poop the August before I started sixth grade while subsequently joining the forums the month after in September and now YouChew is closing up as I'm about to start my high school years. While it is very saddening to see this place shut down, every one of us knows that all good things must come to an end. It may mark the end of an era in the YouTube Poop community as one of YTP's arguably most quintessential forums is closing, but that doesn't mean everyone on here is getting Thanos'd and will just disappear forever. We're all still here and many of us will simply move to somewhere else on the internet where we can continue our discussions hopefully for years to come.
Although it may be no more, YouChew will never truly die. The community will live on through other sites such as Neon Castle and YTPMania where we'll continue what Conrad Slater had started on here.”
Now, I need to get to what I’ll be up to after YouChew’s closure. I might just abandon YTP as a whole, I’ve been uninspired as of late and have been focused on making music. Most likely my channel will be in suspended animation and I’ll upload if I get any ideas for videos or join a collab. I do plan on signing up for YTPMania in the near future, but I might not be as active on there as I was on here.
