According to the analytics on a video I shared to a Subreddit, more of the views came from when I shared it to Drummitup and Game Jolt than on Reddit.
Video promotion can probably depend on the Subreddit. What might work best is to have a build up within the community before sharing.
The trouble I have with creating thumbnails is portraying what's actually in the videos, while keeping the text and character closeups large enough so that if one were to browse YouTube on their mobile device or whatnot, they would know what the videos are about.
These days, I rarely ever receive any sort of actual criticism on modern YouTube. More often than not I would delete generic comments including mere compliments/bashing. There's really no way I would reply to them besides thanking them.
Sometime last week, my channel somehow got approved for the YouTube Partnership Program, despite the huge ratio differences between views, comments and subscribers. I never intended to make money off YouTube, but there I am now.
