Huh, that just happened to a friend of mine. I wonder if he emoted on a livechat...Apparently, YouTube - aka Google - has started issuing bans on people's accounts that spam emotes in livechats for YouTube livestreamers. And by bans I mean they have completely locked them out from things like gmail, pictures, Drive, etc. Complete ban with no overturning.
Losing my gmail would seriously fuck me over. Talk about stupid.
I know this was about YouTube’s decision to delete “commercially unviable” content, but don’t remember the exact wording.
Jim Sterling generates his revenue elsewhere, but YouTube still generates revenue from running ads on his channel.I know this was about YouTube’s decision to delete “commercially unviable” content, but don’t remember the exact wording.
I’m wondering if this isn’t also an attempt to essentially demand, “Allow Google to monetize your content or else face deletion.” If so, the ones who really need to watch out at the folks like Jim Sterling, who merely use YouTube as a place to host their content, but generate their income elsewhere.
Episodes of the Jimquistion are set so no one can monetize them, but he's still a Youtube partner and monotizes other videos. He has to Copyright Deadlock Jimquistion episodes to keep publishers from trying to monetize his criticisms of them though.I thought he specifically had his content set so that nobody was allowed to monetize it? Or do you mean the usual YouTube banner ads?
