Age gated again. And again. And again. And...

I have a video that is constantly getting age gated by Youtube. It is easily 4 years old, called "The hagravens upskirt" - There is a 5 second clip of my character's bare butt that I did not censor. So because showing that to the world, would make everyone young person explode into a thousand bits and parts. They age gated it.

Never questioned it, it is what it is. Youtube is broken, and I get that.

But a week later after the first age gate, it was age gated again. ????

I checked it out. Nothing is different, it was just age gated again.

Then a month later it was age gated again. I didn't change anything and to be honest forgot about it.

Yesterday, 9 months later from the first age gate... yup you guessed it. Age gated again.

< sarcasm >

The world is now just a little bit safer now that this EP has been age gated 4 times and you can rest easy knowing that the efforts and resources of Youtube are being put to good use.

Maybe change video title?

I mean I could. But it is age gated. If it wasnt and it meant the difference between being gated or not, I'd change it. But I just thought it funny that youtube must seriously be wasting their resources on this failure. If I am getting this happen to me (I had it happen twice before, but only 2 times so far) I can't even imagine how many other people are getting that...

Figured it wouldn't make sense to start a new thread, so here we go.

Three weeks ago, Youtube age gated my video. Had no idea why. The new age-gate system does not specify why your video was gated. Just says, yeah... we think its not suitable for 13-18 year olds. (mind you 14 year old youtubers are streaming / uploading GTA V videos and the like doing way worse than anything I am doing - but whatever)

My solution? I went in, removed 1 second of pretty much dead air. Re-rendered it, re-uploaded it and it was no longer age gated. System broken? ummm yes.

Last week I uploaded a video and it was age-gated. I talk about this in the cussing thread so I wont get into detail.

Solution? I changed the name of the title from Dead Fish & Ass to Dead Fish & Butt and bleeped out the word ass in the beginning - not even going to get into the absurdity of that.

This week. Guess what. Uploaded a video and it was... shocker, AGE GATED! Of course it didn't say what it was for. I had no idea. Nothing in the video was worthy of an age gate, much like the last two.

Solution? For shits and giggles: I divided the video up in 4 (@4 minutes each). Then uploaded, waited for whatever to be age gated. It said the first section. I divided the first part into 3 (@90 seconds each), and uploaded that, and waited for them to age gate whatever. Yeah, they age gated the third section. It was screen captures from a game I streamed 4-5 times on YOUTUBE, even had a normal vid about it, all NOT age gated! But screen caps was too much. To put the finishing cherry on top; there is about 40 seconds of footage of that game at the 17 minute mark of the that video and you guessed it, that was not age-gated. All saved in this playlist. Note the "third 80 seconds" and see what was age gated.

So what does this long winded rant mean. Nothing. Youtube is really broke and very frustrating.

But there is no recourse. If you ask for a video to be reviewed they can pretty much make up anything they want to keep it age gated. There is no regulation. If you argue further, they could go through and start age gating everything on your channel (been done many times already). So you are at the mercy of their shittery.

OK. Rant done. Thanks for listening.

SO another video and another age gate. I have this weird fascination about why it is getting age gated. It takes more work, but I want to know what is age gated... this video has nothing in it that I could see that should be age gated.

I cut the video in four parts, 5 minutes each to see what is age gated. Then I will cut that part into 3 and upload that to see what part of it is drawing the age gate. LOL.

Glutton for punishment I think is the term.

Have to mention this. That video from the original post. It was age gated 3-4 times...

I am not sh*tting you, it was age gated again yesterday.

It has been almost 10 years, and it has garnered 10 views in 2 years, probably all Youtube LOL. I am thinking I might just remove the damn thing, since the tubes is obsessed with it.
