  • Crazy_Cat_Gentleman reply They've taken the you out of Youtube, they should rename themselves Corptube to avoid misrepresentation lawsuits
  • November_Fox reply That's messed up! However, I left YouTube about 3 weeks ago and have no intention on going back. In fact, about a handful of YouTubers I really like is the only reason I visit that site at all anymore.
  • [ – ] Dos_Gaming reply Wow, this is brutal! And on the same day Vidme added the subscriber button! *hint hint*
    • [ – ] MrJoelDee parent reply I had no idea they added a subscriber button. I thought the follow button that's been here since I started doing Vidme, was the same as "subscribing" on YouTube. I mean, doesn't matter to me either way. I just saw the story in my FaceBook feed and decided to do a video about it.
      • [ – ] Dos_Gaming parent reply Yeah go to your Money tab on vidme and activate it. It lets people subscribe to you with monthly payments of your choosing. They are also going to add a feature where only subscribers can see your videos if you mark them "subscriber only". Check out my video about it.
  • TigerClawTV reply Vidme is hyper supportive because it's still small. Best case scenario, if there is a large Exodus from youtube, the trolls will make their way here at some point. Just don't let them get to you.
  • [ – ] Wolfer reply The 10k is acumulative... check your overall viewcount in analytics... sounds like you've already passed the threshold.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply Well I dunno. I mean, all total, I may have. I've had monetization on my videos pretty much since I started YT almost a year ago, but the thing is, IF I'm understanding things right, at least before this story broke, you had to meet luke a $100 threshold to get paid anything, and that boiled down to getting like 1,000 views everday, which as a new creator, I didn't feel was attainable. I think the most money I ever got up to was like $5 and change. That was with like 3,000 views on one vid and maybe 2,000 on another. And that was from doing vids that really weren't me. My regular videos at most over time, some have gotten up to like two hundred and something views.
  • [ – ] Wolfer reply Thanks for your input! 10k views isn't too hard to achieve - the issue is that you get reviewed by YouTube after hitting 10k in order to be monetized If the ad friendly guidelines reflect the review (i.e. swearing, sexual humor, subject matter, etc) then small YouTubers would be screwed.
    • MrJoelDee parent reply The only time I ever got remotely close to 10k was once when I tried just some down right stupid things that weren't really the kind of content I wanted to create. I got caught up in the whole trying to get a bunch of views thing, instead of making the kind of videos "I" wanted to make.
