VINGLE KPOP SURVEY RESULTS!

Okay guys, I organized all 168 responses and here's what you said!

WARNING: LONG CARD AHEAD!

10 responses answered yes, and 14 said that they had seen bullying or put-downs happen on Vingle :/
While it is AWESOME that almost 90% of you have never seen that, this is a good chance to remember that feeling are easily hurt online and there are always misunderstandings. If you ever feel like someone is being malicious towards you or another Vingler, please reach out to the Moderators of the community and hopefully we can work together to make everyone feel safe here again.

Annoying Stuff:

It was great seeing almost everyone say they didn't find anything annoying BUT there were some valid concerns!

1. Irrelevant Cards!

Please check out THIS CARD about posting in relevant communities. All Kpop cards can go in Kpop but for the sub communities, please think if your card really belongs there!

2. Copying Cards and Credit

If a new MV comes out or there is breaking news, please understand that people will post the same thing many times - its just the nature of the internet. Maybe check the community to see if someone had already posted about it before sharing something brand new! ALSO if you're participating in a game, please try to find the person who started it and link to their original card (or at least mention them in your card for credit!)

3. Incorrect Information

Please check your facts before posting news/rumors :) OR if it is just a rumor please make it clear that the facts aren't confirmed yet. It's hard to tell on the internet! Also, if you're posting fake subs please say somewhere in the card that it is fake!

4. Mature Content

As many Vinglers are here for just Kpop and not Fan Fic, please try to keep anything above pg-13 fan fic in JUST the fan fic community. Also, for all kinds of mature content, please try to give a warning in the title or first line of the card!

5. Notifications

HERE is a tutorial for changing your notification settings. For how the actual notification system works, that's something only Vingle can handle so the best we can do is leave suggestions!

What could make Vingle Kpop, as a community, better?

1. Delete Comments

Here is how you can delete comments from your cards and report any thing that makes your uncomfortable :)

2. Tutorials!

Check out the Vingle community here for tutorials :D If you still have questions, leave a comment on one of those cards to request a new tutorial^^

3. Just more interaction in general

Let's all work on that! Not just commenting but more events and maybe meet ups :) If you have ideas be sure to message the mods or comment here or something^^

4. More variety

Some groups are more popular here on Vingle, let's try to share more love for other groups too! It's easy to talk about just one group but I'm working on diversifying my content too^^

Hi Newbies, Lurkers, and Rare Commenters! This is your TIME TO SHINE!

Our family is crazy and wild and its so much more fun when you join the party :)

Other comments:

I LOVE VINGLE. It has literally changed my life forever. I feel so much more happier to be able to talk and connect about something I love so much with other people. I get in the best mood and have a better day after going on Vingle! :)
I just wanna say that this is the best community i found on vingle everyone i have met so far are part of my vingle family.
You guys rock, thanks for making my love of Kpop bloom in vingle and be able to share with other who love it just as much <3
I'm glad I've found this community I really don't feel like a crazy person for liking different things. Honestly it's what I've been searching for
This community is rare for an internet gathering of people. I NEVER see hateful or hurtful comments. Like never. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN. It's like magic tech science haha. And this community involves the feels for hot doods and ladies so its like, miraculous pretty much HAHA.
Okay guys, I want to share this amazing response we got (this was anonymous but if you would like this taken down please message me - I don't think anything here reveals your identity but I will take it down asap if you feel uncomfortable)

It's long but worth the read *warning FEELINGS ahead!*

I love VINGLE and I am happy to be apart of this wonderful community. I have noticed that some people have talked about leaving because they don't get enough notice. I don't know how to fix that. I didn't join Vingle to get noticed, I just wanted to learn more about my idols and great music and share the things I love. What I found here was so much more. I was a lurker for at least the first month, so no one noticed me. When I started making cards, very few people took note. But the more active I became and the more I commented on other people's cards, the more I got to know other Vinglers and they started to get to know me to. I never expect to get noticed and the couple times my cards have actually gotten a ton of likes, I was pretty shocked.
I saw a card by kpopandkimchi a few months back about not being a silent Vingler; instead of just liking or passively looking at cards she encouraged us for just one day to comment on every card we looked at. I think that was brilliant. She encouraged us to meet each other, to make connections, to participate in this community. A lot of times when I'm hurriedly looking through cards and think of liking or clipping only, I remember that card and instead try to take the time to comment. Each and every one of us who post cards, took the time to put it together. I can see how frustrating it is for that to go unnoticed. So maybe we need to do more of that? Encourage each other to take the time to leave a comment instead of just a like?
(edit: i took out the suggestion about official vingle notifications because unfortunately we can't control thatㅠㅠ)
Oh, another thought. Kpopandkimchi has recently started a Friday feature that highlights community members by interviewing them and linking their cards or profiles. This is another great way for other Vinglers to meet someone they wouldn't have otherwise. There could be more of this. Vingle could choose a member to introduce every week. I am a community supporter and I would love to have access to a list of new Vinglers who join our community. That way we can issue a welcome card to those members every couple weeks or once a month, which would help the members meet each other. It's hard for some folks when they first join so giving a shout out to those newcomers and introducing them to the community might help. Kpopandkimchi has done this in the past and she did it shortly after I joined. The welcome comments from other Vinglers really made me feel more comfortable in posting my own cards.
I got really long winded here. Sorry.
The last thing I want to say is how much I love Vingle. This is a place I can go to and be accepted for who I am. I can be as active or inactive as I please. I've made stronger friendships with people I've never met (Vinglers) than I have in my regular life. I've never once felt bullied or poorly treated by anyone nor have I witnessed it happen to anyone else. The fact that cattiness, drama and harassment don't take place here is part of why this community is so great.
What I have witnessed is a community come together to support others in need. To encourage those facing a tough situation. I have been awoken at 3am by a Vingler who was concerned about a member who might be hurting herself and asked for my help in contacting her. I have been brought to tears as Vinglers spontaneously made cards to help a member who was being bullied at school. I currently am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support the community members are showiing for BBxGD as she fights a terrible illness. Yesterday, I saw a card from an 8th grader who was simply asking for prayers for their friend who is battling cancer and there were over 30 comments from Vinglers sending their comforting words and prayers.
....So I was shocked to start seeing people talk about feeling bullied. This is simply something that cannot be accepted here. We need to figure out what is happening and put an end to it so that every Vingler can feel safe here. A lot of our members come here to escape the terrible things in their lives and bullying is one of those things. They shouldn't be subjected to it here too.

I really love you guys and hope that we can continue to make our family bigger and better every day.

You are some of the most spectacular people I've ever been able to talk to and I am thankful that we've somehow all found each other on this messy world wide web.

Vingle Family, you guys are amazing and even if we've never interacted, know that I love you very very much!

Super M Editor Intro
Hello all, It's Erica. I have joined @MelissaGarza on her journey to turn this community into a huge one! So let's do it! It's been awhile since I did an intro card so bare with me! I am 23 (born in 1995) and I've been on Vingle since I believe late 2015. I have been a K-pop fan since roughly the middle of 2014. The group that got me into k-pop was EXO and my first UB was Sehun. My current favorite group is NCT and Jinho (of Pentagon) is my Ultimate Bias. Though I also love Pentagon, Day6, VIXX, Astro, The Boyz, CLC, (G)I-DLE, Everglow, Stray Kids, Victon, Red Velvet, Ateez, ONEUS, ONEWE, and The Rose. I love lots of other groups too but those are the one's I keep up with the most. I am currently the pioneer and president for the ONEUS and The Boyz communities. However, those terms will be coming to end soon. I will soon be the NCT community's president again, I have been in the past for two terms. In the past I have also been Pentagon's Pioneer and president for three terms. The Kpop community's president for two terms. K-Drama's community pioneer and president for one term. (G)I-DLE's pioneer and president for one term. I have also been an editor for kpop, B.A.P, VIXX, NCT, Ateez, A.C.E, and Astro. Before Vingle had presidents/pioneers I was a part of many unofficial moderator groups keeping the interests alive. Before then when Moderators were still a thing I was Moderator for Day6 and Astro and was also on the kpop moderating team! My NCT biases are Taeyong, Doyoung, Kun, Xiaojun, and Jeno so naturally I'm going to support the crap out of Super M since Taeyong is in the group but not only that since NCT is my ult group I would've supported them regardless. Plus I'm trash for Taemin, Baekhyun, and Kai as well. However going into Super M I know Taeyong will remain my bias! I am already trash for these boys so I absolutely cannot wait for their debut! I hope all of you are looking forward to it too! Until then you can join and support the Super M Community by clicking on the link below!

Super M Community Introduction 📢🎉
Hello! My name is Melissa! I am the Pioneer President of Super M Community. I'm pretty excited about this amazing Collaboration that SM Entertainment is doing. So excited that I had to start it's own community here in Vingle. I'll be doing a brief introduction of myself. I want to introduce my team first, @Halsyeon, @Just2BLoved and @kpopfan88. Thanks for joining me in making this community possible. As I mentioned, my name is Melissa. I'll be sharing a brief introduction of myself. Then share some plans I have for the Community. Let's start with me... - I'm from Texas - I'm a huge kpop fan and in lots of fandoms. That's one of things I love about Super M. It has my favorite members from my favorite kpop groups. - My hobbies are reading, watching dramas and wrestling. I enjoy doing photo edits and dab in fan fiction writing. I also enjoy crocheting when I have the time XD - My Ultimate bias is Jackson Wang from Got7. For Super M, I have a feeling that I would have a hard time choosing an bias. - With the new term fixing to start, I'm currently at the end of being President for Got7, NCT, and EXO. I'm currently only President for Super M. I'm editor for Ateez, Shinee, and other communities councils. - I am looking forward to help this community grow and prosper. Now for my plans for Super M Community. We are still in the planning stages. I know for sure that I am planning to Welcome to the Community Giveaway. I'll be giving away Super M 1st mini album that is due to release next month. We will having an Debut event for it also. That's all we have for now. So stay tuned for more details that would be coming soon. Also stay tuned for Council members introductions. Now is the time to invite you all join Super M Community.

6 Korean Olympians To Watch!
You know I can't WAIT for the Olympics so let's look at a few awesome Olympians representing South Korea :D PS: 올림픽 - oh-lim-pik! Ki Bo Bae - Archery A South Korean archer who was ranked the world’s number one archer in August 2015. She is the current World Championship and the defending Olympic champion in archery. An Chang Rim - Judo South Korea’s premier lightweight Judo champion and the nation’s representative in the 2016 summer olympics. He is currently ranked first in the world and seeded first in the Olympics. Kim Ji Yeon - Fencing A South Korean sabre fencer and the 2012 Olympic champion. Having started foil fencing at the age of 13, she is the first South Korean woman to win a gold medal in fencing in the Olympic games. Shin A Lam - Fencing A fencer whose 2012 duel sparked a huge controversy in the Olympic games after a timekeeping error gave her opponent a timing advantage. When South Korea immediately appealed the decision, Shin waited for over an hour on the duelling ground, in accordance to the fencing bylaws, while judges deliberated and eventually gave the win to Shin’s opponent. Son Yeon Jae - Rhythmic Gymnastics An individual rhythmic gymnast, dubbed the “National Fairy” of South Korea. She has won titles in the 2014 Asian Games, 2010 Asian Games, and 2014 World Championships. Calling it now: she's going to be the next Kim Yuna and have her face on EVERY advertisement lol! Park Tae Hwan - Swimming An Olympic swimmer who is the first South Korean to win an Olympic medal in swimming. He has competed and won medals in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and is to compete once more in the upcoming 2016 games. Who else is PUUUUUMPED for the Olympics?!
Self Care Tips: What Works for You? Featuring calming BTS Music..
Hello fam! What is self care and what works for you? I practice self care all the time to help manage my personal, professional, and mental health. I've learned that when your mental health is stable your physical health and life is better. I will share my self care tips I do to manage my Depression. What is self care? It is what is says. Self care is taking care of yourself. This could be meditation, skincare, going for walks, coffee time with your friends, walking to dog, listening to music, exercise, etc! Healthy ways to maintain the cool you! I have been diagnosed with Major Depression and sometimes I find it annoying when ppl think they know what I'm going through. However, this is how I manage my mental health through self-care Mindfulness I love taking time out everyday at the end of the day to practice mindfulness. This helps me relax so I can have a wonderful restful night. This helps improves my sleep and reduce anxiety. Meditation/ Imagery I switch it up and sometimes before going to bed I listen to soothing music and meditate. I use imagery to help relax my mind and body. Below is some soothing BTS music I love to utilize to help calm me down. Writing/Poetry I love chilling and writing. I play some chill music to help the creative juices flow. Try out purchasing a cool note book and pen that you can use for just writing. Pedicure/Pamper Once a month a get a jelly pedicure. This helps me relax after a long week. If you can't afford one you can do this at home. I will share some of my foot soak recipes in another card. Remember there is only one you, so please take care of yourself!!! Besos!!
Self-care: Skincare Routine
Hello fam! Taking care of your outside is a part of self care. Skin care is not only good practice or hygiene, but can help reduce stress with the time and quality of products that you use. I will share my updated skin care routine. FYI my skin type is dry and sensitive. 1. Music I always have to play some music and groove when I take care of my skin. As ya know I'm either rocking out to BTS or some rock band! 2. Products for Day Time: Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam and Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer This cleanser is super gentle and so silky. It does have a super light scent. This does not dry out my skin.I purchased my on Amazon. It's under 20 bucks and a little goes a long way. I use this in the morning. This is expensive!!! I will say about $65 bucks USA coins. However, a little goes a long way and the formula is like hydrating your skin with silk. This is light weight but super hydrating. Great to apply before make up as well. 3. Night Time Products: Biore Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser, Real Cica Essense Pads, and Dr. Jart Ceramidin This cooling gel cleanser gives me life and soothes my skin at night time. It feels so relaxing. Make sure not to leave in skin for too long if you have sensitive skin. These pads claim to be a light skin peel. I will say that it does soften my skin, reduces irritation and or inflammation, and leaves skin supple with a glow. You can purchase these on Amazon too. This moisturizer has so many natural ingredients and does have a lemon scent. This is thicker but super hydrating. This does help reduce irritation as well. This did cost about $35 bucks. 4. Makeup face: Take the day off Cleansing Milk For my make up I double cleanse. I use this Cleansing Milk followed by either or wash and my night time moisturizer. This was $25 at Ulta. Sorry folks I know I should use spf but I don't. I used to use this sun blocker but it ended up breaking me out after 6 months of using it.
Level Up KDrama meet The King
So I wanna talk about the Drama Level Up for a hot beat! Started watching this Drama and it's interesting so far, about a girl who works in the gaming industry but the company she is with goes bankrupt and is sold to a new CEO who has come in and dubbed the company a fixer, where he turns a company around and puts it back on its feet. He is a very straight laced man who displays nothing, like poker face. This is a show that turns humorous BUT I hadn't known until further into the show that there is a kpop group that shows up every once in a while and does something. me, instant thought oh it's not a real group but damn they are good!!! . . . They actually are a real Idol group called The King. Hunting down the Video of Sung Hoon the main leading man, rapping Okey Dokey with them! Fam tag! For everything! @Eswee  @ezzygomez24  @EvodiaEbraheem  @StefaniTre @SugaKookieV   @sukkyongwanser @SimplyAwkward   @Starbell808  @AngelaDarkness @amobts @JaxomB  @JJiBin @jademarie4567 @VKookie47  @VeronicaArtino @BabydollBre  @KassandraSosa @KendraReeve @KellyOConnor @KimFergus @KokoroNoTakara @KassieXiong  @MaelstromVIP   @MaritessSison @MelissaGarza @IsoldaPazo @imiebegay14  @twistedPDnim  @TracyLynnn @tinafalcon22 @tigerlily84 @Taekookimonster @amobts  @QueenPandaBunny  @RedChord @WinKonVIP @pharmgirlerin  @Lelulgc @jjrockstar @Gaarita100 @FromBlue2U @Yugykookie97 @kpopandkimchi @KihyunA @SerenaAurthers @ynsamgwlk @TishForde  @BlueMoon201 @QueenPandaBuny @QueenyCrossGene @Sugasadamsapple @ynsamgwlk @rchacon19 @cns1391  @PolarStarr  @rocklvr @BTSARMYBOI And an added bonus of The king song Look Back
