YouTube is deleting channels that doesn't make money!

Postby FireyPaperMario » Wed Nov 27, 2019 6:36 pm

Yup, it's the fucking nightmare came true for both non-profit YouTube channels with tons of subs & small "Just a non-profit" YouTube channels! As the stupid staff of YouTube decided to delete all channels with small subscriber count and non-profit shits next month. This will be bad because I believe everyone in the SMBX who has a channel could LOSE everything they work hard on due to this "demon from hell" bullshit.
Here's the video:



I'm worried about this too btw, as I been using a channel for freaking Eleven years, and I use my channel to socialize and non-profit! And I'm gonna lose all that YouTube experience if this is true!

Yeah, I've heard of this situation as well.

It really sucks, as I wanted to get back to making youtube videos, but seeing this just deters me from actually returning to youtube, as many others risk doing tons of hard work editing just for youtube to kick these small channels out onto the curb because they are small.

I don't think they will change their mind though, which is kinda sad, as it pretty much means that after all these channels are kicked off, they will most likely start kicking off any channel that doesn't make them any money in like an month's time.

I looked at a Reddit thread about this. "Commercially viable" doesn't necessarily mean because of the lack of views or profit or whatever.

* It could be because a channel turns advertisers away because of their offensive or political content. If one of the biggest YouTubers went on a political rampage, regardless of whether they're monetized, they would be shot down sooner than any very small YouTubers.
* One Reddit comment suggested that while storage costs money, it would be much more expensive to take everything down. That would make sense for the channels that don't get many views, but those with higher average view counts and no monetization would be easier to find.
* "Commercially viable" content could also refer to the website's additional features, and not the video storage. Features such as Annotations, Friends lists, and Video Responses could have been removed for this reason.
* There has been some emphasis on targeting anyone who uses Adblock, which many viewers probably never used. But even then, I don't know if Adblock even requires you to have a YouTube account. I've never used it, so I wouldn't know (that said, I have YouTube Premium, so it wouldn't matter to me anyway).

Now if YouTube actually did terminate channels, I do think that the videos would be hidden but not deleted from the server. They would only delete them if it was the user's choice to do so.

I mean, if Youtube really delete channels, they will face the wrath of the community with its controversy or maybe some financial backlash.

YT's explanations
We made some changes to our Terms of Service in order to make them easier to read and to ensure they’re up to date. We’re not changing the way our products work, how we collect or process data, or any of your settings
To clarify, there are no new rights in our ToS to terminate an account bc it’s not making money. As before, we may discontinue certain YouTube features or parts of the service, for ex., if they're outdated or have low usage. This does not impact creators/viewers in any new ways.

so, keep your cool for the moment I'd say

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

I found a video, and it says it was uploaded by a law firm. The first 2 minutes and the final 1/3 of the video suggest that nothing much is really changing (at least in terms of profitability). What happens now still could have happened under their old terms.

If you can handle 32 minutes of listening to a legal expert:

So there's some hope for us small YouTube channels after all! :D

YouTube won't do anything to small channels. This is basically there to remove controversial channels and things of the sort when they can't get any other reason to terminate it, so they will just say it is not commercially viable.

I knew they weren't going to do anything outrageous, judging from Cedur's quotes

Right now, I'm really glad that RTR (Ryan ToysReview) didn't get terminated in the first place. I think my support project #SaveRyanYT worked after all. You can learn all about it when I release my NSMBX Special Funpack, which will be finished soon. And I mean, long after this reply is posted.

Have a good day!

P.S. I'm pretty sure said channel was a channel that was made-for-kids. I saw a screenshot of YouTube Kids with one of the videos of said channel. And you shouldn't be confused if you played SMBX: The Great YouTube War of 2020. That is all, really! ;)

1. Read Cedurs Post, there was never any means of channel terminations.
2. I doubt a hashtag trend you made prevented that, they haven’t helped ever cause in the end it’s the decision of someone who else.
3. Did you just bump this to like promote something you do for no reason.

Okay, I take everything I said yesterday back! And I admit it! :shock: Ryan ToysReview wasn't really terminated EVER, and I lied about the support project #SaveRyanYT. The truth is...


THE #SAVERYANYT SUPPORT PROJECT WAS NEVER EVEN STARTED!!! I'm sorry. Please don't kick me out. I told the truth, the entire truth, and ONLY the truth. :(

I hope you can forgive me.

Also, phew! Thanks for telling me the truth about YouTube's new Terms of Service, Cedur! I knew no YouTube Kids channels would be terminated from this new ToS. Well, we figured it out. No reason for me to conversate about the Ad-Pocalypse anymore. :D

But thank you all for sharing this useful information. It helped really well. And don't forget to download and play my NSMBX Special Funpack which is coming soon only on the SMBX Forums!

Thank you for reading, and have a great day!

May I quickly ask, how old are you as you are quickly and gullibly taken in by random sources on the Internet that often prove to be manipulative?
