Hi All,

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped me out on clearing my issues with my flagged YouTube videos. Managed to clear 14 our of the 18 videos (it was 17, but one more dropped in after we started).

I'm very grateful, so THANK YOU everyone! You're all awesome! :)

Thanks everyone!

Bud: Yeah, it stinks, but at least we got a lot of it done. It's just frustrating that YouTube seems to be picking on it's medium to smaller content creators this way.

I honestly believe that Youtube's intentionally trying to drive content creators off of the site entirely. With cable dying out and all of these media companies hesitant to offer streaming services you're seeing online companies compete to offer spaces for them in the hopes of bringing in big bucks from them. Google quite clearly no longer sees Youtube as a place for content creators or for people to upload dumb videos but as a platform for the same media conglomerates who have been controlling everything since the dawn of broadcast media shoving the same crap down your throat that drove you away from TV and to places like Youtube in the first place.

It's not even the small content creators that get it, it's the large ones too. Remember all the anti-Pewdiepie articles in places like the Wall Street Journal like a year back? They were pretty obvious hit pieces being run on behalf of the media companies feeling threatened that they were losing out to someone like that and because Youtube sees more money in partnering with large media companies, content creators that don't play ball are going to get screwed over. The smaller ones will just be hit harder, like always, because they lack the reach the larger ones have.

Just "creating a new Youtube" is nearly impossible as well. The infrastructure isn't really in place and Youtube is a constant money loser due to upkeep costs so you'd have to have people with infinite money backing it.

Rugal: Yeah, I've been with YouTube for over 10 years now and seen a several shifts in the way the treat their content creators. Seven or so years ago, I was invited to a number of YouTube seminars, about how to increase your channel and 'build you brand'. They have people meet at a fancy hotel and give us pretty decent snacks, while they told us that we should put out a video every few days or once a week, and they should be about 2 to 3 minutes long, but no longer than that. Then there was a shift, to where they tried to make content creators more 'professional' with things like YouTube Space LA, where they gave classes, and tried to get people to meet up and work together. Problem with that was you'd get such a wide range of YouTube people showing up to these events, so I'd talk to people who did 'how to fix a car' video, or someone who did cat videos, or someone who did skateboarding videos, but it was nearly impossible to find anyone to really collaborate with and YouTube didn't have any way to help with that, so it was kind of a big waste of time. So now they seem to have shifted again to big cooperations, who don't really need YouTube resources, just their platform to show their material. So YouTube has shifted from short 2 to 3 minute videos, to making videos as long as possible, which is what the networks are already doing.

Anyway, I'm just rambling now, but I do agree that YouTube is making it harder and harder for existing contributors and probably much more difficult for new people to even build an audience.

Interesting topic, but I don't know what we can do about it.
