Well, welcome to the forum, gunslinger! I would just like to tell you that if this is your series, then it isn't a very good idea to plug your work as your first post. Here on SN, we like our new members to make a Welcome thread in the SN Communtiy subforum to introduce themselves.

Also, the reason you're not able to post links for 7 days is because you're a new member. This is to prevent spam, even though you're not spamming.

If you have any questions, just ask! I hope you enjoy your stay!

EDIT: Here's the first video:



EDIT 2: So I just watched all of the current videos, and wow, this stuff is pretty terrifying. It feels a lot fresher than most Slender Man vlogs nowadays. The distortion is awesome, the acting is great, the scenery is wonderful, the Slender Man looks splendid, and all of this sets off this super creepy vibe that I haven't felt in a little while, and it's refreshing.

Though, I do have one gripe: I suggest not using the Operator symbol since it's considered MH canon and a lot of other series that have used it before have dropped it because of that reason. Making your own symbol would be a good idea, too. It adds to the originality that you already have.

I subscribed. Keep up the good work! Very Happy

I agree that the Operator symbol needs to be dropped, other than that, it looks like you have plenty of potential.

Oh man. This is pretty interesting. I feel quite sucked in. As the others said, the only thing that puts me off is the Operator symbol, but other than that, it's pretty exciting.

Hi, I'm the other co-creator of TMJ.

I've read the comments, and thx for what you all said about the logs.

I'm not allowed to say if these logs are reality or fiction, but about the operator symbol in that building:

According to Jared, the operator symbol was already in that building. None of us placed it there.

Well I would assume that the series is fictional since the Slender Man is a fictional character.

Ah! That makes sense, that tends to happen around places lately. But you should still take our advice and not use it purposefully.

Hey, I was just wondering if the operator symbol is the circle with the X through it? Because I think this just clearly marks a series out as a slender series, rather than repeating something.

That is the Operator Symbol, yes, but the reason why it's called the Operator Symbol is because it appeared in Marble Hornets, whose Slender Man is named the Operator. While it does mark a vlog/blog/ARG to be a Slender Man vlog/blog/ARG, it's still considered Marble Hornets canon and only really fits with MH.

Gunslinger, Atsuya,

I just started watching this series and I absolutely liked it by Log #1.

Though the Operator symbol, like what Sethlapod said being MH canon. I think you could still use it in moderation, as in a way, it represents the mythos. Of course, you could make an unique insignia along side that to brand your series unique.

Keep it up Smile

He's suffering from a bit of Alex Kralie syndrome here. Frustration, short-temper, edgy attitude; sounds similar.

This series is just too freakin' great. I get, like, legitimately creeped out every time I watch these.

I want to make a theory, but I don't think enough has happened to formulate a theory. All of these abandoned locations just add so much tension to every turn of the camera.

This series has definitely got some cool locations. (I know I'm jealous) And as it's early days yet I can't really make much of a judgement on the story direction. The acting is decent, too.

My only criticism would be the inconsistency with which language the characters speak. You speak to each other while you're out exploring in English, and then another language while you're sitting down relaxing.

There's nothing wrong with speaking your native language and subbing it in English. Or just speaking in English. Either approach is good, but I'd suggest you pick one and stick to it, or come up with a good reason for the switching.

Otherwise, I'm subscribed and looking forward to more.

Usually English because they're urban explorers, trying to show to the world what they're doing.

The main reason they've talked Dutch in log 4, was because Grayson wasn't aware of Jared recording him.

Otherwise they speak English when recording. Just in some cases, they didn't prepare any situation and just turn on the camera. Which means they speak their own language.. Wouldn't be natural otherwise.

Well that makes sense. But when crazy stuff happens would it be natural for them to keep speaking English rather than reverting back to their native tongue?

In some cases it would be, as they don't have much difficulty speaking English where they come from. I guess unless something really crazy happens, they'd be able to keep speaking English. (And as for now, nothing really really bad has happened, they had some encounters with the slenderman, but those encounters have been subtle so far)
