This post is a little rant as well as a plea for help! As you’ve noticed from the heading, it’s all about the new YouTube Partner Program (YPP) rules. I mentioned it in a previous post not all that long ago.
If you’re a YouTuber, you’re probably received notification of their YouTube Partner Program (YPP) modification. These new rules will be preventing who knows how many hundreds of thousands of YouTubers from monetising their videos. This will take place mid-February!
YouTube Partner Program (YPP) Requirements
What is now required to monetise your videos? According to their site; “Starting today, we’re changing the eligibility requirement for monetization to 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers.?” Too bad they don’t use Grammarly because there’s an error in that statement. 😎
Why are they doing this? Well, it’s because they’re hoping to, “prevent bad actors from harming the inspiring and original creators around the world who make their living on YouTube.”
It seems they’re not at all worried about all the good people who are currently on YouTube earning a little supplementary income. Nope, according to them, “Though these changes will affect a significant number of channels, 99% of those affected were making less than $100 per year in the last year, with 90% earning less than $2.50 in the last month.” In other words, the little guys have to suffer, once again!
Which seems entirely unfair to me because some of the channels I’ve noticed, who have the subscribers and the views, are blatantly violating some of their rules anyway, copyright rules being just one of the infringements I’ve seen.

Here’s my latest video on the subject. It’s all about the New YouTube Rules and my feeling about it.
I had initially posted this on the Warrior Forum, but they deleted it because of “Self-promotion!” Oh well, their loss.
