  4. UPDATE I actually just figured this out myself. I am using firefox normally as my internet browser. I am not sure if it is an addon I have or just firefox isnt compatible with youtube fully, but I used google chrome and was able to get that green check mark on step 3 and am now up for review! I wanted to leave this up and update instead of deleting my comment incase someone else has this same issue.

     just got to 10k lifetime views over the last weekend and now I am waiting for an email or even a change in my monetization settings showing that my channel is being reviewed. I can't even get step 3 to show me a green check mark.

  5. I'm sure you absolutely do not care, but Youtube's slide into shady Political Correctness and "brand appropriateness" and "appropriateness" in general – is deeply worrying and kicks away a lot of what was good about Youtube.

    It comes down to 2 things: (1) Commercial self interest and (2) appeasement to powerful entities. And (2) collapses into (1).

  6. My three latest videos were all affected, upon review they were all approved, I have been making videos twice weekly for almost two years now and all my content has been family friendly and I have never had any copyright or community guidelines strikes, it is incredibly frustrating that I have to appeal every new video to have it approved

  7. In all fairness, THERE ARE MANY SUPERHERO channels that my kids enjoy that ARE NOT making gross inappropriate content…they make just basic hero stuff. I only let her watch those. The ones with toilet humor I do not.

  8. tell me why this is happening… why tf is youtube suddenly becoming pg-13 and the stuff that is pg-13 gets like 10¢ per 10 million views…

  9. what will happen with those extreme misleading titled and thumbnail videos?

    I was expecting from them being demonetized

  10. Hello Tom, I have a question regarding a problem that I have had with views, watch time, subscribers and overall traffic to my channel.
    In May of last year, my channel started growing considerably more than previous months. At the end of that month, however, views , watch time, and gained subscribers tanked. It seemed like growth on my channel was at a stand still. Since then, I have tried different things such as changing up my content, uploading more, and uploading less to get my channel back to the point that it was at in May, but nothing thus far has helped me get back on track in growth. In fact, overall growth on my channel has been slowly declining since June 2016. I personally believe that this has something to so with the traffic sources, but in the end, it is just speculation on my part.
    Could you possibly shed more light what may have caused this drop in channel growth? Also, is possible, could you tell me ways to overcome the obstacle that caused this to spark a bit more growth on my channel?
    Thanks

  11. WAT? Does this really mean elsa n spiderman softporn is now going to die? I am deleteing my youtube account this site is dead for me.

  12. Thanks for the information Tom, another great update… seems like YouTube is on the right path here.

  13. in response to " Inappropriate language: Video content that contains frequent uses of strong profanity or vulgarity throughout the video may not be eligible for advertising. Occasional use of profanity won’t necessarily result in your video being ineligible for advertising, but context matters. " please define frequent. i'd rather not get ads pulled because i said fuck an extra time

  14. I've got one for you. You've now made it possible for advertisers to choose what types of channls/videos they advertise on. Wouldn't it be fair give creators that same ability? There are some advertisers I would personally not like advertising on my videos. Maybe I feel some companies are engaged in hateful business practices. What tools are you giving creators to have more control on who advertises on their videos? We simply get an on/off button and you give advertisers the works. Doesn't seem fair.
