All the easy ways are covered, I'm afraid. One bare boob and you'll be completely banned because of American sensibilities, rather than just marked "not for kids". Shooting up some people before the start of the video won't have an impact because gun violence is regular fare in schools.
Yes, I've already marked my channel as "not for kids." However, Google's algorithm can override your choice if it "believes" strongly enough that kids might want to watch your content bad enough.
Oh great, this means YouTube is implementing their own version of Attractive Nuisance Doctrine, where it's your fault if kids flock to your content despite your warning(s) that it's not for children.Yes, I've already marked my channel as "not for kids." However, Google's algorithm can override your choice if it "believes" strongly enough that kids might want to watch your content bad enough.
According to that answer article, your intent, label, title, or even preroll/superimposed disclaimers re: a channel/video are immaterial.
"We will consider your video as 'made for/at kids' if:When deciding whether or not your channel or video is made for kids, you should consider various factors, including:
- Subject matter of the video (e.g. educational content for preschoolers).
- Whether children are your intended or actual audience for the video.
- Whether the video includes child actors or models.
- Whether the video includes characters, celebrities, or toys that appeal to children, including animated characters or cartoon figures.
- Whether the language of the video is intended for children to understand.
- Whether the video includes activities that appeal to children, such as play-acting, simple songs or games, or early education.
- Whether the video includes songs, stories, or poems for children.
- Any other information you may have to help determine your video’s audience, like empirical evidence of the video’s audience.
To be fair, this is FTC guidance, not a rule crafted by youtube. Amazon has a similar list:Yeah. Real clear, YouTube. The defining characteristic of a video made for kids is that kids might watch it. By this definition, any conceivable video is "for kids." I saw The Shining when I was what, ten years old? War combat footage? Sorry, kids see that kind of stuff in social studies and history classes. Porn? Contains music, could be considered sex ed, and the grade level of the dialogue is certainly in the right range.
You might as well just come out and say that all videos posted to the site must be "for kids." I mean come on.
COPPA is a shit-crafted law. But it's a law. You can't blame big business for trying to adhere to it.An app may be considered child-directed based on a variety of factors, including the following examples:
- Subject matter of the app (e.g., educational)
- Visual content (e.g., unicorns)
- Use of animated characters
- Presence of child-oriented activities and incentives
- Type of music or other audio content (e.g., songs sung by children, not just songs that kids like)
- Age of models (e.g., babies, toddlers, tweens)
- Presence of child celebrities or celebrities who appeal to children
- Complexity of language used on the app
- Whether advertising on the app is directed to children
I can't blame them for respecting or attempting to respect it, no.COPPA is a shit-crafted law. But it's a law. You can't blame big business for trying to adhere to it.
I don't want flying cars until they are computer controlled. I don't trust fuckers with their cars on the ROAD. Think of the shit show if Jim Bob and his redneck idiot friends could FLY.The original Blade Runner is now in our past. The events of the film started on November 20 2019.
We basically got the shit-sack world with out space travel, replicants, archologies, and not even flying cars.
The ability for uploaders to flag their own videos as children-targeted or not was the only action mandated by the FCC. Everything else that Youtube is doing in response is entirely their decision, including the overzealous algorithm automatically flagging channels.COPPA is a shit-crafted law. But it's a law. You can't blame big business for trying to adhere to it.
In a similar vein, we recently had a dinner of cassoulet and had cider with it that was a mix of apple and paw paw.I'm always buying weird stuff at the store that I've never tried before. If it's food and i've never eaten it, I want to try it, at least once.
I never knew the pawpaw was indigenous to America. What the heck is Baloo on about when he's explaining how to pick them without getting hurt to Mowgli then? He's on another continent!I think in the discussion I was talking about, we eventually decided the fruit in question was a citron, and not a Buddha hand, but it turns out they’re both basically the same thing, a “fingered citron.”

the criteria they are using to determine what is "for kids" is so nebulous basically anything can be said to be so.
Sooo....yeah. Scrape whatever you want to keep by Christmas, else watch it vanish forever.The defining characteristic of a video made for kids is that kids might watch it. By this definition, any conceivable video is "for kids."
I'm seriously considering shuttering my youtube channel, because even though I've marked it as "not for kids" and use profanity in nearly every video, some bureaucrat might decide one of my game reviews or tutorials is "for kids" because a kid might want to watch it and haul me into court.Sooo....yeah. Scrape whatever you want to keep by Christmas, else watch it vanish forever.
