YouTube Moves Goalpost

Don’t you hate it when people move the goalpost making it even harder to achieve your goals. Well, YouTube moves goalpost to make it even harder for creators to make a buck. Actually, let me rephrase that, making it impossible to make any money.

How YouTube Moves Goalpost

So, how did YouTube move goalpost? Here’s the email I just received today.

Peter Pelliccia,
Today we are announcing changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). While our goal remains to keep the YPP open to as many channels as possible, we recognize we need more safeguards in place to protect creator revenue across the YouTube ecosystem.
What’s Changing
Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, Peter Pelliccia, is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.
One of YouT
ube’s core values is to provide anyone the opportunity to earn money from a thriving channel. Creators who haven’t yet reached this new threshold can continue to benefit from our Creator Academy, our Help Center, and all the resources on the Creator Site to grow their channels. Once your channel reaches the new threshold, it will be reviewed to make sure it adheres to our policies and guidelines, and if so, monetization will be re-enabled.
The YouTube Team

YouTube Moves GoalpostReally :wallbash_tb:   :hairout_tb:   :wallbash_tb:

I just checked my stats and last year 3,216 hours of watch time, so I’m only 784 hours short which is achievable with some help from you guys.

As for the subscribers, as you can see below I’m shy 251 subscribers. Without help from you guys I have no hope of reaching the 1,000 subscribers in the next 30 days.

    I hate this move but it’s not unexpected. They’ve been making move and demonitizing videos for a few months now. I got the same letter and just deleted it since I’d read the story on a website and knew what it was going to say. I’m never going to get 1,000 subscribers or the minutes so why bother trying?

    Doesn’t mean I won’t be making videos; it means I’ll work on figuring out a different way to make money off them.

      I’m almost there Mitch, hours wise at least. I may not make it within their time frame but we shall see what happens.

      Someone said that the move was to cut down on costs and such. Can’t understand that because I always thought the whole thing was automated.

  2. Twitter:
    I still don’t know the reason why they had to make this change to YouTube, it has affected two of my user accounts and payment until the next 90 days. Really annoying.

  3. Subscribed, and I enjoyed ‘how to shear a sheep’. Haha. It must be so satisfying for them to get that coat off and cool down!

    1. Twitter:
      Hey Dan, thanks for subscribing? Do you have a channel you would like me to subscribe to?

      Also, you would have noticed that my videos vary a lot in subject matter, as I try to both entertain and instruct :smoke_tb:

      1. No, no YouTube content at this stage. I recently filmed an unboxing of one of the products we promote, but it was too ridiculous to upload! My wife really needs to front such things but I’ve still got to convince her of that fact.
