Howdy,
Youtube just dropped a bomb that unless you have 1000 subscribers and hours of viewed content every month, they are now dropping you from the monetization program in February. For most of you this means nothing. For the charity that I run in my free time, its a small funding source that is now gone. And to think this all supposedly came from youtube not filtering ISIS video's which lost them significant ad revenue.

been reading this about youtube, to be honest my view is stop making vid for youtube or refuse to have ad's posted on vid, " you need any army to reach there set targets " but once the ad man start seeing there views go down google will change, the little guy got fked over by the changes in terms which we have little choice but to except from the sly grubby gits.
just think once the makers stop sharing vids on youtube it be nothing but a branding freak show.

"PS
If we don't hit the thresh hold then I will just pay for the kits myself. But it sucks to lose the $70 that is in there.

 Imagine there gonna be mass lawsuit on the way, lot of folks in that positions you tried those go fund me site thingies??? I've sooner drop you $5 than waste time with the callous shifty dealing of youtube.

Yeah you are right, screw them.... I'll just pay for the kits myself. I was blind sided by the whole thing when I got the email being that the account is a charity and all.
I can see them dumping regular users. But I never saw them dumping schools, church groups, charities, etc. What a bad PR event this will be on google.

First photobucket, now youtube. Who's next to flush their service down the pooper?



Meantime I've 25 Bob clones to build!   :o
