I went from 234 to 1000+ in about 2 weeks, it's hard work and frustrating when people who are begging for subscribers don't return the favor. Or subscribe and then unsuscribe again. Fortunately I can now focus on getting more views by supporting and receiving support and by creating new videos.

I haven't posted videos yet but may do in future. I never thought about monetization really or enacting it. I would only post to reach people of similar interest and doubt I would get massive views. To become a multi millionaire through youtube just post crass and juvenile content. I think it was that moron who posted a suicide victim in Japan that caused the shakeup: a total tool who has nevertheless made a fortune. I think you have those "stars" that Youtube are interested and smalltimers they are not bothered about. I only go on there to see specialist stuff I am interested in :)

I don't watch vlog channels either. I'm not interested in some stranger who thinks he/she is interesting enough to share with the world what he/she ate this morning. And yes, making extreme videos no sane person would do is all part of the game to increase view time and Youtube loves it! The only part Youtube didn't love was that people got offended including the advertisers and the opinion of advertisers is the most important factor if content is considered good or not. (What a wonderful world we live in...)

A bit of fun for those who have, like me, a small Youtube channel.

I have a good subscriber base and lots of ongoing views. Enough so youtube is not pushing me out.
2769 subscribers

Last 28 days:
55 new subscribers
36,000 views
142,983 minutes or 2366 hours

They pay my wife a little and I do mean a little considering I have posted over 750 videos over the Las 12 years.

I am not in it for the money and the little they pay me doesn't begin to support my hobby. I enjoy doing this to share my knowledge and some of the toys I restore and play with. As said the little they send goes to Mrs RedRyder as she is the one who kindly supports me in my hobby which might sometimes translate as she puts up with me and my hobby, LOL...!

Paul, you should watch a video by Barnacules Nerdgasm about this subject. It might shed a better light on it for you.

As for those who remain on the good side of adsense there will be more money available to spread among fewer creators.

One more thing. Your recent video was not fun for me to watch because it leaves a viewer like me sort of glazed over due to your fast talking and excess of special effects. I hope you accept my critique constructively. I know my videos are often made while jerking the camera around too much but I always try to make them easy to understand. I wish you all the best with your channel.

One more thing.... I don't have any fancy equipment. My videos are all shot with the same phone I talk on or the same Sony dsc hx20v that I take photos with.

Hi Paul, moving from 234 up to 1000 in just two weeks is awesome. You are to be congratulated. Very well done...!!!

Thanks for the kind words Gil, currently I have about 1200 subscribers. Quite an achievement indeed when considering that Youtube is actively deleting subscribers. Insane really, they set insane targets to even those who were already monetized without any strike or penalty and when those channels are getting involved in the Youtube community to get more view time and subscribers, as Youtube recommends in their "creator tools and videos" then Youtube is sabotaging those channels.
If Youtube doesn't want small channels monetized anymore then they should say so!

As for the video, yes it's fast and distracting. The end slows down though, the part no one usually watches. 😄 It's nonsensical and temporary, after the 20th of february no one will watch it anymore, probably.... Did you know by the way that quite a lot of people are speaking quite fast and are cutting the silent parts in their videos away to get as much information in a video as short as possible.The idea behind it is that the attention span of viewers is usually short (which is definitely true) and no one is going to watch lengthy videos when there are short ones with the same content. That's why all three videos I made about the demonetization subject are short.

BTW: it could well be that your phone was more expensive than my Sony camcorder and Gitup action cam, combined. 😉

Hi Paul, That isn't likely regarding my phone. It's an early Samsung Galaxy S5 that I bought used for 250 usd more than 3 years ago!

I still run android 4.4.4 in it and keep it that way by continually postponing the pushed updates to newer operating systems.

Quite impressive, the video quality of your old smartphone. Can't complain either. I have a used HTC One (something) that's probably even older and I was surprised how well it performs compared to my Sony camcorder, bought new in 2016.

I guess it won't take long before cameras and camcorders become obsolete because of smartphones, (for hobby use of course) would save money and keeping track of all different kind of batterypacks, usb cables, SD cards, etc.  for all different cameras!
