Hello, Morbid-channel. This is your runner, Neutralgray.
I'm not so naive as to think this will be a successful post. But I did want to say thank you. We have recently reached just over 5,000 subscribers. That successfully makes this the largest channel on this site, I believe, followed by Ponytime with about 200 less. While I don't see this as a contest, I'd like to thank all of you for making this the largest channel of the site.
I figured in honor I would tell you some of my original plans for the place and how it came to be. When I made this place, back when channels first became a thing, I made this channel in the big wave of first channels. It was quickly buried and I assumed it was dead. I wanted it to be a place of scary stories and images, such as creepypastas and those strange "when you see it" pictures. It was visioned to be a place on FJ you'd go to at night knowing it would help keep you up. And, much to my happiness, that is what it became for awhile when another user had found this channel and begun to post frequently. I'll withhold his name of the off-chance harassment comes his way, but he knows who he is. He brought it back to life and I suddenly had a channel to run.
For awhile it was what I wanted it to be, except for one particular. It quickly grew too large... to the love of some users and the loathing of others. That was something I never saw coming. I pictured this place having a few loyal regular users, sort of like a "club house," instead of the immediate 2000 followers it had. I tried to keep a peace between the regular users and the Morbid users. Wasn't easy all the time.
I'm glad to have seen the channel grow, though. It's sort of a silly realization that I made something liked. It's weird. Over five thousand people follow something I created. That's amazing. And while the channel's taken silly turns and I really wish more creepypasts and legitimately scary images would be posted, I'm happy enough being your runner.
So, thank you again, Morbid. And thank you, Funnyjunk. And thank you, user, for either your subscription or your toleration of this place's existence.
