YouTube's Big Problem --- UPDATE

  • Published on Nov 11, 2019
  • I have an update to the situation regarding RUclip suspending people's accounts. After speaking with people at RUclip and coordinating with those that have been affected (with the help of my mods) I'm happy to the say that the problem is currently being worked on! It's not FIXED yet but things are moving in the right direction to make sure that this never happens again. Watch for the full details and please signal boost so people are aware.

    A huge thank you to my mods who have helped communicate the issue and gather information through the whole process! This is still a work-in-progress but I’m happy things are getting done!

      Hey you think Dailymotion can be a alternative to RUclip? I know it can be but only if the most popular RUcliprs start uploaded content there, the only thing is Coppa might eventually affect everything including Dailymotion, Twitch, etc.

      "This should have never happened because they were copying and pasting" - Well, some live chats may actually want a spam rule. copying and pasting as many messages as you can is a red flag for any type of spamming. If I ran a live chat, I personally wouldn't want people spamming if I were trying to have conversations with my followers.

      If anything came out of this I see two things: 1 RUclip needs to allow creators to turn on or disable chat filters at their own choosing. This way you can allow spamming behaviour if you want. I can see why they have a limit. Imagine being a small channel with 50 people in a live stream, and 3 are in there just spamming messages over and over to ruin it. They need to be stopped or the creator needs the ability to remove them from the chats. Live chats with hundreds of people are just a shit show. I don't even bother participating in a live stream if messages are just rolling by and the creator is only responding to 1 out of every 100 messages. Waste of time and most people use them just to spam ridiculous things to get a rise out of people. It's a real problem for some channels who are involved with Drama. You get tribal fans raiding live chats and spamming. This is a legitimate issue.

      #2 A lot of RUcliprs run contests and polls with their viewers. A quick polling feature might be useful to avoid the Spam issue.

      The context of this is that Markiplier was OK with spamming. The problem is, what some of those users were doing was the definition of spamming. This is where the creator needs the power to say, I want them to be able to spam my chat.

      It's more of a - how do we handle this situation because different people are going to want different behavior behind the scenes.
      The real issue here is the manual review. It's at such a large scale and the problem it's totally out of nearly every technological companies hands as it continues to grow.

      My guess is, reviewers probably have to get through hundreds if not 1000's of reviews a day. That means you have only so much limited time to investigate. My guess is, they get a case, they see why: oh user sent 100 messages in less this amount of time - reject. All handled within less than 30 seconds.

      You could argue, well they should handle every case with care and time and context. Impossible. Literally is. You can want that, but it ain't going to happen. It's not a solution to hire more manual reviewers. It just isn't. Advances in A.I and machine learning are going to be required and that's still in its infancy.

      Rather than they are villains, I'd like to hear some legitimate ideas about how they could solve that process?

    COPPA is comming in the beginning of 2020 and it will be a £42,000 charge PER VIDEO if it is "falsely" claimed as not child freindly.
    But just after that nuclear explosion that is COPPA we can't forget are old friend, ARTICLE 13. Which is basically the clean up crew of the internet, they're just gunna sweep away the rubble of videos left with copyright.
    Please address this.

    They really should look at plagiarist channel such as Calon Sarjana whose contents are only copy paste from other channels without asking for permission or even citing the sources, add dubbing in other language, then claiming those videos as their own. They have Millions subs and taking the ads money for such disgusting practices.

    Hey Mark how do you feel about coppa other communities will get effected like my community is gonna get effected we won't Be able to have stories have a comment section or anything like that and it's effecting a lot of communities it's got creators in my community crying, depressed, dark thoughts and if my community is hurting and being effected like this it makes me very disappointed at how RUclip forgot about RUclip kids RUclip is taking our freedom of talking to a fans and our fans are our family when we're down they bring us back up like a fellow creator I know and I'm a fan of she had her depressed moments but our family in my community it huge and coppa is taking us all down if they think our content I kid friendly cause my community is a chibi community called the gacha community the stupid thing is if we say our videos are not kid friendly and RUclip says they are regardless what things could be in the video there might be a fine for us to pay and most of the people in my community are 13+ or lower yet we all still has gore & profanity and they may still have us on kid friendly that isn't right I just wanna know your opinion on it and sorry if this is really long I just wanna hear someone else out of my community's opinion

    Bro I used to hate Mark and I was so mad when he uploaded a video, no matter what he's doing, I reported his videos. Reminder, I was 5.
    Now, I'm his fan. I would love to be a member but, I'm broke af. Anyways, I would always share his videos, like the videos, and watch everything. Being Mark's fan, cry with him, and emotionally feel connected with him.

    The point of this comment is, I'm here for you always and I wish forever but, no one lives forever. My youtube channel started just because of you and Jack and Felix. So here I am, my thanks to you is being here with you. You probably won't notice this but, all I want to say is I love you and I love your content, your channel and everything.
    btw tell your family if you see this their more pro than mark
