Heads up! YT is at it again. New "policy" they enforce without telling anyone.

So this weekend I found out that YT took away my "advanced" features.

I mean they really didn't, I could still do most of them except put in a link in my description that wasn't YT's.

Said I had to verify the account because I did not have enough presence on the platform.

17 years on youtube.
over 1690 vids
over half million views
2 million hours
YT Premium account.

I mean at what point am I not verified? LMAO.

To verify, I had to record myself for 15 seconds on a video and send that to them.

No sh*t. Can't make this stuff up.

I would say they are just picking on me but I know of 4 other people this happened too... so what the %@#$ is going on with YT?

If they wanted to prune out the middle range to little channels, this is how you do it. Two of my friends said they wont get verified, they are not recording themselves and the other ways are unacceptable. One is borderline illegal, I know because Facebook had issues shortly after they tried it.

Why can't Youtube just be normal, simple and behave? Why all the drama, the extra bullshit that only worsens the platform.

SMH.

Just heard from the 5th person who got the same email.

2 of them said ^%$# that, and will no longer use YT.

Th other three reluctantly did a face cam.

Last YOUTUBE meeting:

"How do we prune out all of these small channels and stop them from uploading videos?"

Pause...

"Hold my beer, I got an idea!"

 ;D

That's...strange.  Sounds like some kind of scam frankly.  Are you sure you're sending videos to YouTube and not some creepy basement dude?

Nope. It's legit.

Not like anyone ever knows why they do anything, not until months later. Its just how crappy the company is run.

I havent heard past the 6th one that I heard about from friends, colleagues. I can only think it was sent to anyone who had a video age gated. Most of my friends have had one or two hit.
