I know some members of the wikia page are lurking around, so I thought I’d leave a message here for them and everyone else to see.

Here is the page in question: http://savemiku.wikia.com/wiki/Case7_mikufan.com

There still continues to be a very heavy mis-understanding of my intentions about the “Save Miku” movement. It was not my intention to stop the Save Miku movement at all, but rather stop the continued reposting of topics and videos. There was already more than enough. It started getting out of control to the point where even people in my own youtube subscriptions were reprinting “save miku” videos an entire 3 months after the incidents first happened.

On top of all of this, I was observing a lot of internal conflict within the community. People were fighting each other and pointing fingers at different groups, and even different races. It was extremely painful for someone like me to watch. I myself have been called a “filthy little Korean” (I’m not even Korean) by people claiming I’m trying to hurt Miku. I’m doing anything but that. I’m trying to keep us from hurting ourselves.

We’re all here because we love Hatsune Miku, we love music, and we love the community. This is something the community needs a little more of: Love, compassion, and understanding. So taking my message (and the message by Scott of mikustar.com) completely out of context and making things look more complicated and negative was completely unnecessary, and not to mention hurtful.

Lastly, there is a claim that the email we received from Crypton was misunderstood or taken out of context. I’ll paste the exact response as it was, so you’ll see there was no misunderstanding. I’m not expecting an apology from anyone, but I hope things are now more clear between both sides. Thank you.
