CULTURE


Crytek is a German-based video game company that was established in 1999, since then it has ballooned to six studios across the globe and multiple hit games, including the Far Cry and Crisis series, and that doesn't even mention their work on the beautiful CryEngine's over the years.But, if a Reddit post is to be believed, there may be something rotting at the core of Crytek."Crytek hasn't paid me (or my coworkers) for almost 6 months now. HELP!" reads the title of the Reddit post, submitted into the Legal Advice sub-Reddit.Apparently, this isn't the first time the company has withheld pay. Back in 2014 the company nearly went under water and was saved by delaying payment for the employees of the company.The Reddit post states that the last time this happened, presumably the events of 2014, they were told that it would never happen again but now it's happening all over again.The post also suggests that the employees of the company are afraid to speak out because they are told  “Thank you for your continued efforts through this difficult time” as well as "you don’t understand because you don’t see the whole picture like we do— wages are coming soon.”Furthermore, there has apparently been a breakdown in communication throughout the company where managers are not able to get in contact with upper management, talks are being refused and apologies have never been issued.It sounds hard to believe, but with Crytek's sordid past in regards to similar events this very well may be what is happening over at the game development company. If it is true, I can only wish the best of luck to all of those within the company who have not been paid.

The old culture of book publishing has always been that you have to spend more in order to tell your story. For that reason, many tales were left untold and because poverty has always been prevalent. Only those with full pockets have a leg up.Someone once said that "the best stories are found in the graveyard," and this is true. Self-publishing is the new means of telling a story if the old ways were too expensive. With technological advancements in modern times, people can type out their manuscript, edit and design it in the comfort of their homes, at their own pace. Everything is done according to the author's liking.Besides working at one's own pace, the process is quicker. Unlike traditional publishing, where you could wait for months to get a publishing contract, people can now even sign their own contract. It is as easy as agreeing to the terms and conditions and then uploading your content. Soon after, you are already telling a story long in the making.However, even great things have demerits. With self-publishing, other writers have failed to deliver quality reads while fighting to deliver a higher quantity. There has been a high rate of unprofessionally edited work that has lost all meaning. As good as it is, self-publishing will also call for committed writers who are serious about their work.

SCIENCE & TECH


BlackScreenTV was once a YouTuber with 29,000 subscribers. Now he has under -1,500. Yup, that's right, a negative number. YouTube is in trouble.The glitch is pretty simple. If someone unsubscribes from a channel the YouTube algorithm miscounts it as two un-subscriptions instead of one. If someone was to subscribe to and then unsubscribe from a channel over and over the person would rapidly hemorrhage subscribers, and that is what is happening at the moment.As of yet we do not know how long this subscriber glitch has been happening on YouTube, but we do know that subscriber glitches have been a problem on YouTube near constantly over the past months. At first people had noted that they were being randomly unsubscribed from the favorite content creators, whilst content creators were finding that their channels were losing subscribers every time they uploaded. YouTube always denied that anything was going wrong on their end.All of this does have to make us question how long this glitch has actually been going on for. It was discovered in the early hours of the morning by BlackScreenTV, but in truth we don't know when this began.Subscriptions and subscribers are the key, most important part of YouTube, and was arguably the thing that made YouTube blow up in the first place. If this is happening now, and may have been happening for a while, then how can we trust YouTube to keep an accurate count of our subscriber counts in the future?As for now, YouTube channels are rapidly dropping in subscriber counts, and there has been no response from YouTube.
