    Hello, everybody! I'm back on behalf of the Freedom! Community Team with another Community Newsletter for you. Change is in the air, all around, it's everywhere. Let's see if you've been keeping up, and catch you up if you've missed anything in the last couple of weeks.

    Creativity For The Win (Literally!)
    This month's forum contest has begun and it is a great one! Throughout September you can submit creative and conversational emojis in the official thread below. The winning emojis will be uploaded for use on the Freedom! Discord server. How awesome would it be to see your creation being used in the server? You win Steam game keys too! Good luck, everybody! I look forward to seeing your creations.

    Forum Layout Changes & Updates! Oooo!
    Have you noticed the forum changes that have been rolling out? Check out the Home page.
    My favorite change so far is the cool slider that showcases important official posts.

    Freedom! Helps You Understand Copyright
    Check out the following thread for great info and answers to questions such as "Why does copyright matter?" and "Who is entitled to claim copyright?". This is all important for content creators to understand: www.community.tm/threads/understanding-copyright

    Anthony Focusing on Sponsorships
    For about a year and a half the Community Team has absolutely loved working with Anthony Smith, we learned so much from him and have appreciated his dedication to community. Recently, he took a step away from community, and now he is focused on Sponsorships; working on finding new and innovative ways to make Freedom! a more exciting option for creators of all sizes. We are excited to see what is in store from Anthony! Thank you @Anthony Smith for everything, and for the implied vote of confidence in us as you shift toward Sponsorship.

    YouTube's Design Changes! Whoa!
    During the last couple of weeks there has been quite a bit of talk about YouTube changing the design of their logo, and much of the layout of the platform. Not everybody is seeing all of the changes yet, but @ItsJustJord wrote a post explaining How to get the new YouTube layout if you want to. I'm open to change if it helps the UI. Tell us your thoughts on the new layout if you've been using it.

    What do you use to make the GIFs?

    Also, the new YouTube 'Sponsorships' thing that they are adding to the beta is quite poor in my opinion.
    I know they need to beat their competitors Twitch, but where is the innovation and creativity?

    I don't use a specific thing anymore, used to be Gyazo but their GIF tool seems to make videos rather than GIFs now, it's kind of odd. I look up the GIF I want, or use a random tool I don't even remember lol, and it could be from anywhere really, so that's the problem I guess. As for the "Sponsorship" stuff, I think it's a great thing if you compare it to the "paid channel" feature that it is replacing - this one will actually be useful to more people, not put creators behind an ugly pay wall entirely like that one did, and it's at least something to try and help make up for some of what's lost with all the adpocalypse drama. :)

    It's going to be better than what already exists with YouTube, correct, but what I am saying is if everything that gets put out in the industry is near replicas of other things, they might as well merge together.
