For the past two days I've been trying to come up with an idea about how the site's layout update should be. Suggestions regarding the Core members' benefits:  Core members should have the ability to customize their background image or colors.  The number of Custom boxes should be 20 instead of 10 for Core Members. Access to all of the widgets that already existed in this site. Core members being able to change their username every 3 months. Suggestions regarding the NON-Core members' benefits: Non-Core members should have the ability to change the colors of their backgrounds. Non-Core memebers should be given the right to have

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.

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.

So sad...

What can i say YouTube are interested in shitposting, like jokes, shitty blogs and awfull content in general...

Or you can have idea for have subs and visits

-like in school when there's no money for the things of the class
Soo they make a massive selling and save their lifes...

I wait you can save your life... :C

yeah it's kinda hopeless to try making money off youtube now

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.

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.
