I think they should have a newbie shelf and have people up or down vote the video, maybe with a box for things like topic, mechanical issues like lighting and camera, and maybe something about how they personally present. Some videos are really horrible and someone needs to tell them. I know it hurts, but if you cannot hold the camera still I think you need to learn that pretty early on. Most of the newbies in my nitch just walk around with their Gopro on their face instead of showing the place they have traveled to. Audio works even when the camera is pointed in the other direction. Even with my channel, I'd love to know if it just isn't good enough. It isn't growing like I think it should even when it's 100% SEO. I've tried everything I've heard anyone say that I could do. I do know I have a thumbnail issue. My editors just don't seem to get it. I don't get it either. I look at the thumbnails before I click and I am not impressed by the thumbnails in the top 5.Just thought YT could also start rewarding creators who are doing great and yet not getting the much needed views and subs, as a way of encouragement and motivation to be strong. Otherwise many could just abandon an otherwise good creative stuff they are are offering for not hitting the threshold.
