So I need a wittle itty bitty bit of help... I get waaaaay to many messages. Here's the problem: Currently I have 397 messages and literally no time to reply to them as it will take a solid 2 hours to do and as I reply I just keep getting more and then I usually have to reply to them extremely late at night so I don't get more and more and am busy all day having endless conversations with people when I could be doing a trillion other things. The thing is, I absolutely HATE it when people don't reply to me so I don't want to be that girl who's too cool to reply. The biggest problem is how 80% of my messages are people either saying hi, asking me to subscriber/watch their video or having a conversation with me. I love to talk to people but these messages are so out of control that I can't even keep up with 30 conversations. I want people to be able to contact me so simply not replying is out of the question, and I don't want people to think I'm not replying to them on purpose so I may have to remove most of my friends and then keep it on friend lock so nobody can talk to me anymore. The problem is, I can't make it impossible for people to contact me, so I was considering using a secondary website to answer messages to make it slightly more difficult. My first plan was to use formspring, seeing that people can ask me questions (or message me) without having an account, and can simply tell me who they are if they don't have an account, or if it's a more private message, not say who they are at all, because nobody really needs to know to have the question answered. Otherwise it would be right on the page. Wait you can do that on formspring right? I'm not really concerned about hate, and I'm thinking of going with this but I'd just like to know if anyone has any other ideas. I don't want someone else to answer my messages, I don't want to just delete them all and sift through to find the important ones, I want people to be able to talk to me if necessary, and I don't want it to require another account, so please keep that in mind when suggesting. I'll make a video about it when I come to a decision, but I really need to cut down on the messages. Anyway, please suggest! Also, in the comments, tell me, do yo prefer the moderator box on my channel or the comments box? Thanks!


  1. Well my first idea was getting a helper but that won't work... Bingo got an idea create a new account and tell people if they want you to subscribe or watch one of there videos send it there and have confursations on GOTYS. then on the sub account have a helper go through the messages make a list of people and videos people want u to watch and give it 2 u then tell each person give me 1 month to sub or watch the videos so u can space them out! Ok that was really lame and complicated but it's my brain working. Also if u r going to unfRiending people don't unfriend me please I need your help sometimes.

  2. Hi Ali! I think you should make a video about the messages, and how they're getting WAY to over the top, and that you can't reply to every message just saying 'Hi'. Then threaten that if they don't stop you will remove the people as friends, and have the friend lock thingy. That will probably help with the situation :)
    And I think I like the comments a little bit better, for your youtube page :)

  3. Maybe you could create something where people could post questions that don't need answers specifically from YOU in particular, and then they could have someone else answer them! Because most of them, (like some of them that I've sent to you, sorry if they crowded up your inbox!) are just questions on how to do something, that probably other people know how to do too! :) Hope this helps!

  4. Comments box :) and formspring would be great so we could see previous answers instead of answering the same questions over and over again. But please do not delete any of your friends =)

  5. the moderater box thingy!! Haters gotta hate and with that they can't! Thanks for subing me by the way!!!

  6. Hi I hope this is not anoying but it says u need an account for formsprng and I thought u said u didnt need one?
