YouTube's Big Problem --- UPDATE

  • Published: 11 November 2019
  • I have an update to the situation regarding YouTube suspending people's accounts. After speaking with people at YouTube and coordinating with those that have been affected (with the help of my mods) I'm happy to the say that the problem is currently being worked on! It's not FIXED yet but things are moving in the right direction to make sure that this never happens again. Watch for the full details and please signal boost so people are aware.

      Hey you think Dailymotion can be a alternative to YouTube? I know it can be but only if the most popular YouTubers start uploaded content there, the only thing is Coppa might eventually affect everything including Dailymotion, Twitch, etc.

      "This should have never happened because they were copying and pasting" - Well, some live chats may actually want a spam rule. copying and pasting as many messages as you can is a red flag for any type of spamming. If I ran a live chat, I personally wouldn't want people spamming if I were trying to have conversations with my followers.

      If anything came out of this I see two things: 1 YouTube needs to allow creators to turn on or disable chat filters at their own choosing. This way you can allow spamming behaviour if you want. I can see why they have a limit. Imagine being a small channel with 50 people in a live stream, and 3 are in there just spamming messages over and over to ruin it. They need to be stopped or the creator needs the ability to remove them from the chats. Live chats with hundreds of people are just a shit show. I don't even bother participating in a live stream if messages are just rolling by and the creator is only responding to 1 out of every 100 messages. Waste of time and most people use them just to spam ridiculous things to get a rise out of people. It's a real problem for some channels who are involved with Drama. You get tribal fans raiding live chats and spamming. This is a legitimate issue.

      #2 A lot of YouTubers run contests and polls with their viewers. A quick polling feature might be useful to avoid the Spam issue.

      The context of this is that Markiplier was OK with spamming. The problem is, what some of those users were doing was the definition of spamming. This is where the creator needs the power to say, I want them to be able to spam my chat.

      It's more of a - how do we handle this situation because different people are going to want different behavior behind the scenes.

      The real issue here is the manual review. It's at such a large scale and the problem it's totally out of nearly every technological companies hands as it continues to grow.

      My guess is, reviewers probably have to get through hundreds if not 1000's of reviews a day. That means you have only so much limited time to investigate. My guess is, they get a case, they see why: oh user sent 100 messages in less this amount of time - reject. All handled within less than 30 seconds.

      You could argue, well they should handle every case with care and time and context. Impossible. Literally is. You can want that, but it ain't going to happen. It's not a solution to hire more manual reviewers. It just isn't. Advances in A.I and machine learning are going to be required and that's still in its infancy.

      Rather than they are villains, I'd like to hear some legitimate ideas about how they could solve that process?

        COPPA is comming in the beginning of 2020 and it will be a £42,000 charge PER VIDEO if it is "falsely" claimed as not child freindly.
        But just after that nuclear explosion that is COPPA we can't forget are old friend, ARTICLE 13. Which is basically the clean up crew of the internet, they're just gunna sweep away the rubble of videos left with copyright.

        Please address this.

                    Ugh, I dunno how this ended u in my reccomended but I got kinda excited watching cuz im thinking" I like this guy" and then.... I clicked subscribe and looks to see what you offer as far as content. Damn! Gamer!?! Why??!?! I'ma say, this is the 1st time I was disappointed that I'm not into gaming. Like, I got nothing! Like, nothing nothing! So disappointed. But that said, I'm gonna stay subscribed just cuz I do like you! 😏😉And not that you need another sub I see, but it's the least I can do! Maybe one day I'll bump my head and wake up in live with video games! A girl can dream! 😏

                                    It's funny how THIS seemed like YouTube's "big problem". Here we are, less than a month later and we all see that YouTube has a MUCH bigger problem.

                                        They really should look at plagiarist channel such as Calon Sarjana whose contents are only copy paste from other channels without asking for permission or even citing the sources, add dubbing in other language, then claiming those videos as their own. They have Millions subs and taking the ads money for such disgusting practices.

                                                                            Now, I'm his fan. I would love to be a member but, I'm broke af. Anyways, I would always share his videos, like the videos, and watch everything. Being Mark's fan, cry with him, and emotionally feel connected with him.

                                                                            The point of this comment is, I'm here for you always and I wish forever but, no one lives forever. My youtube channel started just because of you and Jack and Felix. So here I am, my thanks to you is being here with you. You probably won't notice this but, all I want to say is I love you and I love your content, your channel and everything.

                                                                            btw tell your family if you see this their more pro than mark

                                                                                              When ever I do the 10 second skip thing on YouTube, right after the short pause I hear something that's half a second. It sounds like the entire video audio sliced into half a second and stacking all of that, *it sounds like earape*
