    Default YouTube kicked me out

    Today our friends of Google kicked me out of the YouTube partner program. No more monetizing - I dont have 1k subscribers, nor over 4K minutes of watch time.

    I was eager to build the new channel, better camera, followed every advice, better thumbnails, etc.
    Started doing vids in German - the crowd was lame - did vids with cool gear - nothing happened.

    Luckily, I just do this because I enjoy it and am financially independent.
    If YouTube still places ads before my vids, although I’m out of the program, this will be lousy.

    I still have 30 days to catch up with the requirements, maybe a playing guitar naked vid could help ;-)

    Seems like you just started the channel, Jimi - how long do they give you to reach 1k subscribers?

    They just look at the analytics - I understand that. It’s impossible to check all the content. Maybe I was a little too late with the new channel, it I’m sure my content is worthwhile watching for guitar players.

    I plan to go on and post videos regularly.

    Anyways, you are so right about the kittens...but that is how consumers function today.
