Hey James I’m sad to see you go but I understand completely. I’ve been watching you since I was just a kid when you only had a few hundred thousand subs and now you have over ten million. You are the reason I’m enrolled as a freshman mechanical engineering major dreaming I could work with you guys on your first iron man flight projects. I’ll miss you and thank you for everything.

There are 17k comments at the time of writing this but I know James is sitting there reading these so I hope he comes across this one. I started watching yall back in about 2015-2016 and you, colin furze, and william osman quickly became some of my favorite channels. I was pretty young at the time, maybe 12-13 but I was enticed by your abilities and was happy I found people who thought how I did, I wanted to make cool shit. I started working on transforming my room into a workshop and built a desk where I could store all of my electroinics and tools. A desk turned into a becnch, my pc to a CAD machine, and I even moved my turtle habitat into the hallway so I could fit another bench and more large tool setups. I now have a shop that I happen to also sleep in. Ive built dozens of very impressive projects using a wide asortment of methods, all because of things I saw in the shops of creators just like you. I'm now 19, in college for electrical engineering, all because of creators like you. I can and do build whatever my heart desires because people like you showed me that the only limitations were literally science itself. I owe all of my success to creators like you. All of my friends (and parents) think my room and the things I did as a kid were crazy, but everyone always loved what I came up with. I got to do what I loved from a young age because I had mentors like you, who didnt even know I existed, showing me it was possible. The skills, knowledge, and heart I grew for the wonderful field we call engineering all came frome my favorite people on youtube. Often times it felt like I was alone, Id get stuck and no one I knew had any idea how to fix the problems I was trying to overcome in my projects and in life itself, but I had people like you to look up to from a young age, and it got me to where I am today. I know shit gets hard, and It will not get easier, but the next time you are looking at your bank account thinking youve failed as a creator or entreprenuer, think about the impact youve had instead, because there are thousands just like me who owe it to people like you for being someone to look up to when life got too hard, when the projects hit a fault, or when things seemed impossible. Thank you for following your dreams, and inspiring hundreds of thousands of people just like me. Your contribution to us could one day change the face of science forever, and personally I think that means more than any amount of sucess anyone could have ever earned.

James, you're an amazing, brilliant scientist who inspired thousands of people and kept us entertained with your content like no else's. You made us believe that crazy fictional technology can be achieved if we really put our minds and heart into it. But most importantly, you showed us that it's okay to follow your dreams, and that you *can* succeed in that quest, even though the price of success can be high. I believe I'm speaking for everyone when I say it's a good idea to take a break. You deserve it. Your health, both mental and physical, is more important than making videos. You've been there for us. And now it's time for us to be there for you. You mean a world to us, James. Stay strong mate 💙

You have summed it up for every engineering channel on BRvid, this stuff is hard. I connect with you on a deep level, BRvid can go from Fun to Daily Grind real quick if you are not careful, BRvid is really tough and it's hard to stay motivated sometimes. Just take a break and refocus on why you started in the first place, what you love to do, and what drives you. We engineers always start a project for fun and quickly become obsessed because we are trying to achieve perfection, trying to get it to work perfectly, and can't take no for an answer. As a Single dad for the last 3 years with almost no help, trying to run my Channel full-time while Engineering, Designing, and Building projects, I am still struggling with keeping my mental heth in order. I can attest that If I didn't have my little girl to motivate me I would be in a bad place right now. hang in there bro and you got my number, I will try and pay you a visit when I go up north next ❤ (If I share my Tesla story with you I think that will Cheer You Up!)

Really sorry for the situation and I know exactly where you're coming from. Honestly it's hard to explain to family and loved ones and can get even worse when it feels like we have the support of all of those around us. I don't know how to explain that clearly but having a loving and supporting group of folks and Friends can somehow intensify the depression and loathsome anxiety For engineering folks it can be even more debilitating and frustrating. When you have the skills and mental fortitude to design / build / fix just about anything no matter how complex... But you can't figure out the chemicals and s*** and your own mind... It's so disheartening and I'm really sorry for your situation

This really doesn't seem to be depression to me... and honestly I don't think he lost passion. It's just that he wanted to escape the deadlines, the stress the corporate world and so on, and invested a lot of energy into the escape, which didn't pay off in the end, he ended up being more stressed and maybe betrayed by the system/world? Maybe I'm wrong, but it really looks like a burnout to me. I hope he gets professional help!

as someone working with depression myself, it's a horrible thing. Best of luck James, for what it's worth, your videos have made me smile and enjoy an evening here and there, which is all anyone can ask. To Ian and the team, best of luck. Thank you for making this video. Don't fall into the trap of putting all the pressure on everyone else and burning them out as well. It's going to be hard, James was the face of hacksmith, and so to replace him, even temporarily will be hard and will hit profits, but build it up slowly and sustainably rather than trying to get straight back to the previous levels. It will come, the concept is great, and everyone appreciates the work you do. Thanks for being honest and open about this.

Taking on tough conversations head on is such a great example for the BRvid community in general and especially for us Makers who people think can fix absolutely everything, including ourselves. James, you've given so much to this community, I hope you can take the time to work on yourself and come back when it feels right. Until then I can't wait to see what the rest of the team is up to every month. We're all rooting for you!

Love what you guys did troughout the years, your projects and how you bring to reality some things that human mind didn't think about creating in real life.. From lightsaber, to Iron Man face mask, to anything you did, brings some amazement to us because we can see some real engineers that create some awesome stuff and brings cool jokes with it. Until seeing some of your videos I thinked that engineering was boring, after watching what you did, I got so in to it.. Love your work, hope James will get better (awesome choice for a break) and hope to see more awesome projects from you.

I gotta say thats a lot of work going into what you guys love doing. I can also confidently say, your work is making a difference. You guys are inspiring the next generation of true engineers. People that will go into the profession, not for the money, but for curiosity and their passion for creating.

Thank you for being open and candid about mental health. It would have been easy to not mention it and reference "taking a well-earned vacation" or somesuch, but instead you used your platform to bring awareness to and de-stigmatize the reality of mental health challenges. This is more valuable to me (you should see my pill box, lol) than any video would ever be.
