    The funny thing about demonitization, is I still see ads running on vids that have been demonitized.
    Hrmmmmmmm? ...I wonder who's getting that ad money?

    I suppose monetization is a good thing like you said BUT it's still a farce due to how strict it is. Am glad your channel will continue, well it fucking better! 😂

    RUclip should bank the money while it's up for review. If inappropriate it goes to a non profit charity. If not, it goes to the content creator.

    It’s due to RUclip’s war against conservatism, because we’re countercultural, Goose-stepping google feels it’s their prerogative to punish anyone who doesn’t lean to the left socialist side.

    The problem with censorship is that the person/company censoring can manipulate what's being put out there as the truth. In other words, it makes it easier for people, companies, media, and politicians to lie to people. Unless it's a national security issue, NONE of it should be censored.

    It doesn't make sense to me that what you lose after demonetization isn't reinstated after you're remonetized. The error was on their end. Either the advertisers or RUclip are keeping the earnings.

  • GeddyMX

    I can't help but feel like the end-game here is for the bigger creators to gradually phase out monetization on their videos and rely on Patreon instead. Essentially it's a boycott of RUclip, but creators would have to eat the money they would have made from ads, and who's gonna do that? Really a shitty situation, but it's exactly what happens when you have a monopoly on an entire enterprise.

    Why can't they apply the algorithm at the time of upload? Then give the warning of demonetisation with the option to submit a request for review. Worst case it might mean a delay in the video being posted but presuming the review goes in your favour you would still get the revenue. Not ideal but a possible compromise maybe?

  • Morgan423Z

    I'd heard that some creators were able to bypass this issue by uploading the videos privately, having them demonitized, then appealing and getting that reversed, then finally at that point making them public. Not sure if that's still working, or was able to work for everyone...

    If advertisers pulled out, because their ads were shown on inappropriate videos, then the currently employed algorithm, which RUclip employees worked upon daily, wasn't good enough.
    So this begs the question: How is it possible that they would develop a better algorithm and do it fast?
    The answer is simple - they didn't develop an algorithm. At least not the one they claim they did.
    At the moment, they can't even transcribe voice to text efficiently, after all these years of trying to create automatic subtitles for videos, let alone create a program that understands the context of what is being said.
    If advertisers stopped paying, then Google surely will not pay out of its pockets all the RUcliprs' paychecks. It's sufficient to randomly demonetize videos (and in particular of popular channels) - if someone complains, then surely it'll be after the peak income of the video.
    I would guess RUclip is frantically hiring personnel to manually screen videos, while they figure out a way to do it cheaper. Twitter had (and still has, to a much smaller degree) the very same problem with spammers and fake accounts.
    Great videos, btw, I've been watching your channel for the last couple of days and I'm quite impressed with your work. Although not vegan, the sheer amount of meat available in Japan makes me doubt my carnivorous nature.
    Keep it up!
    Oh, and do ask older people if they remember Bulgarian yogurt being imported in Japan daily, with planes (thirty years ago). At the end, they managed to grow the bacteria locally, in Japan :)
