YouChew Kicks Ass
This place fucking rocks. Seriously. We've gone from a short 20 person community hosted on a cheap hosting service, to a small VPS, to a large VPS, to a small dedicated server, to a very large dedicated server, to a medium one. In that time frame, we've expanded beyond what anyone imagined and became one of the very best communites on the internet. (If not the best!)
Just think about it. No matter what happens, no matter how bad it got, we stuck through it all and made bad luck good luck. Even in the most dire of situations, the community has shone through to prove that this site is one to be treasured, something very special that nothing, absolutely NOTHING can imitate. I know people who auto-refresh YouChew when we're down (that won't happen for a while, I promise) to make sure they're back the SECOND we're up again. That's really something.
We have artists, writers, filmmakers, scholars, musicians, coders and so many more talented people who have come together to converse over a myriad of topics. The wealth of information, of conversation that takes place, is amazing. I have learned so much, made so many friends, met so many amazing people...I'm so indebted to this community. So happy. We've become YouChew...we chew everything, not just Poop. We're not a forum about YouTube Poop anymore; we're a forum about the people that make YouTube Poop, and they're a very awesome bunch of people. I am so very proud of this place, and I'm so honored to be able to manage it and make sure it lasts forever. I'm very proud of our staff, too; you guys are awesome.
I don't know if I'm gonna be the one running this place years from now, but I do know that it will be running. I'll make sure of that. I'm confident that no matter what happens, the people of YouChew will band together to make sure it survives. It's one of the closest-knit places ever, and I'm positive there's nothing else on ther internet like it. It's magical. We've had so many characters, people, events, so many unforgettable memories...it's something that you just can't find anywhere else.
I'm sorry for getting so mushy, but dammit, this place just kicks ass. I really thought about YouChew for the two weeks I worked on it, got to really know it and see how amazing the community could be. Go ahead...make a song, a video, art, or just make a long-winded post like me, express what you love about this place. Or don't! We've had a few soreheads in this community, but there are so few, because we've known each other for so long we've built this bond that is just...you just can't get it anywhere else.
I really, really love this place and I'm so happy, so proud, so honored to be able to serve it to you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy taking care of it. It's not my community; it's ours, and I love every single bit of it, and that includes you. I've seen some of you grow up. Seriously. I wish I knew so many of you in real life, because you're like a family to me. You're awesome and no matter what happens I'll never forget you.
Have a good one YouChew. You rock.57
Thank you Dopply, I couldn't agree more.
I haven't been to a lot of other forums and communities on the Internet but even so, none of them are as good as YouChew. There's so many great, funny, friendly people here. So many hilarious events that go on. I really believe this place has made me into a better person. It's always, always a pleasure to be here.
There's no way I'm leaving this place anytime soon.
And yeah, this place is truly awesome. YouChew is pretty much a 'second-home' to me. I've met so many people, made a lot of friends, and learned a lot of things. I try my best to come on here every day, too. That's how much I love this place, really. This is the best Forum I've ever been to.
While I joined during a rather cynical time in Youchew's history, I must say that I enjoyed every minute I've spent on this forum with you fantastic folks. All those nights of TF2, Left 4 Dead, and even Alien Swarm will remain in my memory until the day I die. Thank you all for being so kind to me, even when I was being annoying and immature. To reiterate Dopply's sentiment, you guys are like family to me as well.
I want to take this time to say something for my good buddy and best bro, The Pope.
I think you're a champ for being so forgiving to those who have spoken ill of you. Thanks for all the good times, "I WON!"s, bromas'es, and awesome articles. You're the main reason I keep coming back here, Snips. Stay cool, buddy.
Though I still disagree with your taste in Final Fantasy games.
Right on, man. I can't really say just how glad I am that I stumbled upon this awesome place last year. Nothing makes my day quite like being able to just wind down and get on YouChew and just talk about practically anything with you awesome guys. This is seriously the best community in the world. And I'm really proud to be a part of it. Thanks for having me around guys. You rock.
This truly is the greatest community ever, I have no doubt about that.
I've been to other forums, but that's all they were: forums. This isn't just a forum. Its a community that loves each other. Its a community united by a common love of an eccentric but tasteful humor. YouChew isn't stuck-up and self-conceded like so many other communities, or grossly inept like 4chan and the like. YouChew is truly unique. It really is an amazing place, and trust me when I say I wouldn't be here now if it was anything like I've been apart of before.
It was mostly by coincidence that I stumbled upon YouTube Poop and YouChew. When I first heard of this place, I had doubts. I was given the impression the community was elitistic and snobbish. I see now it is anything but. My only regret in joining this community is that I did not do so much sooner. I've been here for a year now, but it feels like I've been apart of it forever. I feel complete here. I love this place and everyone that makes it possible, from the staff that manages it to the everyday users that complete the comunity.
I love you guys so much. Cheers, and thank you so much for welcoming me into this awesome community. :37
Not to say that the loss of those months of posts was a huge deal, but it did disappoint me. I did mention before that my post count pretty much halved when they were lost; I guess that I'd only started really frequenting this place in the last couple of months, and I really enjoyed it.
Anyway, here's hoping I quit being such an introvert fuck and start getting more into this community.
This is truly the best forum ever and it's you guys who've made this forum successful. I feel quite honoured on joining this wonderful community. I thank you to each and everyone here, especially to Dopply. <3
Quite frankly it was some YTP tennis match I stumbled across from the Doubles Tourney that brought me up to this place. When I first saw this forum it looked so energetic and lively. I thought, "This is the perfect site to post and show my YTPs to the community". Although I mostly spend my time in the YTP sections, I enjoy communicating a lot with other people. YouChew is something that I can view and explore in my free time. If it wasn't for that Doubles Tourney, I wouldn't be even typing this comment right now.
YouChew is the best forum and no other forum I can think of can come even close to this one! If only my PayPal worked, I would've donated a lot of money to this site as a gift. =S
Ever since I joined back in the Vanilla days, YouChew has always felt special to me and it's still a big part of my life, I'd even say it's made me a better overall person in some aspects. All the good times I've had and friends I've made here are so wonderful and far greater compared to ones I've had in other forums both past and present. There's no other place it and I think I'd be hard-pressed to find one even somewhat similar.
Even if my interest in YTP fades away and I decide not to make anymore, I'll still probably be hanging around this place for a while, and I couldn't say the same for many other communities I've been with. It's amazing how just one little internet forum can bring people so close together and make it something truly remarkable.
Thank you Dopply, the current staff, retired staff, the "founding fathers", and everyone else for helping create the best community ever, and I hope it's around for many years to come.1
There's a reason I've spent the majority of my online time in the past couple years on this website. You guys are the best group of people I have to associate with and I love you~
Really, there is no one on this forum I don't like. I might make fun of some of you sometimes, but it's all in good fun, I promise.
I love this place so much, it's the only forum I go to, all the other forums are either lol XD Kawaii desu. Youchew is different than that, its funny, witty, smart, and a great place to be overall. I know it was a rocky start for me here being all annoying and immature, but YouChew has made me a better person. I would like to thank all of you admins, art staff, moderators, and everyone else for making this a journey to me and everyone else.2

When did you become so well-spoken?QuoteI must say, over the past few months I've been here at Youchew it's quickly become my favorite site, perhaps even most visited one too. I just love the community here. You guys are accepting, funny, and strict all at the same time. I love it.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your time here.
