WHAT A WAY TO START OFF 2018 by RadenWA

tl;dr Youtube is going to kick out (demonetize) creators who don’t have 1k subs and 240k watch time by the end of this month.

My Channel right now is at 500 subs and 200k watch time, so if you could be so kind to help me, please simply watch some of my videos, subscribe and perhaps share this post or my videos around if you are comfortable doing that.

>>THIS IS THE LINK TO MY CHANNEL<<

The screenshot above, btw is from my 2012 award-winning animation about (vintage) memes and cats. Check it out if you haven't watched it! And if you enjoyed watching it, chances are you’ll enjoy my other videos too!

Unfortunately, this film took me a year to make, which is precisely the kind of content that is discouraged with this Youtube change, as they prefer you to upload some shitty 10-minutes vlog every day. So I’ll see if I can survive through this ordeal, otherwise I guess I’ll have to just accept that quality, time-consuming content truly has no place in Youtube.

  • Listening to: My inner doubt about my future
  • Watching: Made in Abyss
  • Playing: Fire Emblem Echoes
  • Eating: Air
  • Drinking: My sweat and tears

Quality, time consuming content never had a place on Youtube for several years. If you aren't already making much money now then I wouldn't consider it a big loss if your partnership gets removed, but the plus side is you can probably get it back if you surpass the threshold even if its months from now (assuming their policy doesn't change yet again).

However I've been hearing about Twitch establishing a pre-recorded video upload system of their own~

My issue is just that when one of my video does suddenly gets viral, then I'd get nothing out of it because I haven't been focusing on "building a fanbase" instead of actually focusing on working on the video itself.

Well if Twitch wants to change their identity from being a stream website into literally the rival of Youtube maybe...

Aw thanks man. I had fun drawing that Lanturn. It's just a shame that drawing skill is valued less than vlogs these days.

I wouldn't call this a "selfish request". Youtube being an absolute d**khead as always are screwing people like you over (Who puts a butt load of time and effort into their work) and protecting their precious little pawns like Logan Paul (Who is an absolute c**k and a waste of human flesh) because they are just a bunch of corporate hacks.

You definitely do not deserve this level of bulls**t from them.

Thanks. I just don't understand how people who makes so much money can be so stingy about sharing them. And people wonder why the 99% divide exists.

And If you try do tutorials about drawing ir do things like "how to draw *****" and you do a pencil draw and you upload it

Or do animated videos or comics about stupid trendings

Or do blogs but, with semi animated characters
(Eyes, mouth and arms movement) about the weird things you can find on Deviantart or something interesthing

"If you can defeat them, join them"

And when you win many popularity you make your normal things on Youtube...

ITS a good idea (^•^)

Animated video takes months to make, at least in my level of professionality.

Tutorials and animated vlogs does seem like the only things Youtube cares about these days. I guess experimental short film just have no future.

YouTube has done some scummy shit before, but this is just insulting

I barely make any money off Youtube before, but this change basically outright tells people who put time and effort on their video to just fuck off.
