    YouTube Question Question about playlist URL and new @pagename

    The URL for playlists are unique gibberish and similar to file names for Youtube videos. That is intentional because with hundreds of millions of users, people would step on everyone's toes trying to find unique URL names.

    Declined Something a bit more affordable for smaller channels!

    You don't need Legend to translate your videos into other languages. It is free from within Youtube to convert the Closed Captioning to any language you want. I do it all the time and translate to 10 languages.. What Legend does is to translate the title and descriptions. But you could probably...

    Need Advice YouTube ads to promote videos?

    Anthony, I must say that I am impressed with your channel. Clearly you are doing something (or many things) right. I noticed you seem to be targeting a more sophisticated business audience based on the titles I saw. They appear to be resonating with your audience based on the impressive view...

    YouTube Question Question abot priority of shorts for NEW YouTube creators ......

    I respect Nate a lot. I enjoy his insights and creativity. Shorts is here to stay and most creators should dip their toes in the water to get some experience to get some options. I think it requires skill and talent to make really good Shorts but I am not convinced that it is "harmful" to...

    Need Advice Thinking Of Deleting & Re-Editing Everything.

    How old and how big is your channel? You are giving the impression that you have a small channel to have these alleged harassers impact you with dislikes. How many dislikes are you getting on a video? As far as I know, "dislikes" don't really hurt your channel. They just hurt people's feelings...

    YouTube Help potentially suspended - Is Youtube corrupt?

    As a general statement, people who decide to make content for kids are in for a much tougher environment to operate in. Too many esoteric rules & interpretations to navigate as you are experiencing. I know some people make a lot of money catering to kids. But having anyone that is a minor viewer...

    YouTube Help How to un freez YouTube channel

    My first question is: what kind of content are you posting? YOUR content or someone else's? The fact that you think that a copyright strike is "nothing much" might be a clue to why you are having problems. You get copyright strikes when you post other people's content. If data is being...

    YouTube Resources The BEST Ways to Take Advantage of your Community Tab RIGHT NOW!

    I don't see many CP's on my feed. However, I definitely see them from time to time. I googled to find out if non-subscribers can see CP's and someone on reddit claimed they are shared with non-subscribers. I seem to remember a fringe discussion some time ago who allegedly built up their...

    Stanley, Great post as always. I wanted to read what you had to say about Community Posts. Slowly, I have been using Community Posts to put out content and updates that don't necessarily require an entire video or even a Shorts video. As you said, I will probably share some personal stuff...

    YouTube Question Have you had your channel handle yet ?

    I have been forced into sticking a number at the end also as the easiest solution. You might prefer a single-digit number instead of a double-dgit if you are forced into it. "@dronepilot1" for example.

    Other Social Media Creative Independence in the Age of Algorithms.

    I certainly believe that "working harder" is not enough as a creator. You plateau out or you only get incremental growth if we just grind out the same thing. I believe have to be "smarter" and be more "creative" otherwise the grinding is pointless. But that clearly that means something very...

    Need Advice Talking about subscriber goals

    You make good content for an extended period of time in a niche that you and other people are interested in. You constantly learn and evolve and "earn" subscribers. There is a lot to learn to earn 1K subscribers. It starts by committing to making at least 50-100 videos and learning & improving...

    Need Advice Accounts and channels

    With my legacy YT channels plus a couple newer ones, I have about 15 channels under one account. It is convenient but there is a danger to piling up so many YT accounts under one account. If someone hacks or gets into your account, they have access to ALL the accounts. DevilbytheTale makes some...

    YouTube Question Question about exclusivity of channel name

    For us mere mortals with small brands/trademarks/etc, the chance of having another channel duplicate your channel name is a very real possibility. I think the most practical way to fight off other channels with the same or similar names is to be as distinct as you can be to separate yourself...

    YouTube Opinion Demonetized - thanks to few of my old short videos

    I think you might have missed the point of WHY people might want to consider having other "outposts" besides YT. KS just got done telling everyone that one minor infraction caused him to demonetize a whole month. If that was his sole income, that is one month's of income. What if there is...

    Thanks for sharing your story. Always good to hear from actual cases. I respect your choice to be a strategic risk taker. It resonates with me. I have become a bit bolder as time passes based on the premise that sometimes the only way you can find out or discover something new is to try new...

    YouTube Opinion First 100 Videos: What's more important views or subs?

    Wow, you are grinding hard. If you are doing decent long-form videos, I would not consider that spamming. However, there are Shorts "creators" who make some very bad, low-quality videos who upload multiple times per day in a desperate attempt to gain views and subscribers. It certainly sounds...
