Corrupted Archangel : If only the biggest YouTubers, Content creators, and networks could orginize a Strike. Even if it is just to make a demand for content creator friendly policy. YouTube gets its Revenue from these people. This in the end would benefit both the platform and the people on it.

Aaron Jensen : So what's next YouTube? Are you going to ban Forgotten Weapons next saying that Ian is teaching us how to make firearms?

George Morgan : Whoever programmed the bot should be ended rightly.

Aaron Reichert : "Just when you thought YouTube might start to get its act together" I didn't think that. Did anybody think that? Did you really think that? Or is it just a nice way to lead into the story?

DropForgedSurvival : That is completely absurd!!! Ill be making a video this evening.. Gotta support fellow Texans!! #westandwithvikings

ZiNiC : Move to Pornhub, they already have an ad sistem and no restrictions

P4riah1 : Lots of morons shouting 'SJWs!' in the comments of all these videos. Guess what: the SJWs are up in arms about this crap as well. You know why? Because all the 'SJW' content is being flagged as well. LGBTQIA+ content? Flagged. Politics of ANY KIND, left or right? Flagged. Videos talking maturely and sensibly about harassment issues? Flagged. Mature conversations about race and gender issues? Flagged. This isn't 'PC gone rampant' or 'SJW agenda'. This isn't 'left vs right'. This is asshole marketers in suits in the depths of some giant soulless corporation deciding that ANY content that even has the POTENTIAL to be even slightly controversial in ANY DIRECTION is 'too edgy' for advertisers. These cowards are TERRIFIED that their ads will run on anything that isn't the most mainstream, milquetoast, boring content, and Joe Blo Public will judge them for it. This is mindless corporate bullshit gone rampant. This is obsolete business practices being unable to handle the internet age. This is the panicked flailing as the long-untenable ad-based revenue model finally collapses. Place the blame where it belongs for once.

NGMonocrom : I know of someone who might be able to help. Don't know him personally. But he helped out another YouTube content creator get her strike removed when her ASMR video got hit and pulled for sexual content. (Yes, I know that some ASMR-tists do cross that line. But the majority simply want to help their viewers relax and sleep.) There was zero sexual content in the video. But YouTube refused to remove the strike after she appealed. Awhile later, someone suggested she contact the following individual.... He's known as True MVP: https://twitter.com/TrustedFlagger Please let Thegn know to contact this person. Not sure he'd be willing to help. But there's no harm in politely asking. It's worth a try.

にゃあエイリアンMeowAlien : YouTube is testing their newest AI, they learn really well seeing how racist, bad prank, violence, and such video is untouched while critical, historical and educational video is taken down The AI must have studying YouTube comment section and I have to say it was rather accurate Kappa

Awaclus : If big YouTube channels migrated to alternative platforms and stopped uploading to YouTube, they would take a lot of their audience with them. The problem is that you can only really do that if your livelihood doesn't depend on YouTube.

Onetwo Threefour : how to build legit explosives: step one: take some soap now someone else continue so that none of us can be held responsible

TanitAkavirius : This is the future libertarians and ancaps want. Look. No state is involved here, *no regulations* . And you are allowed to start your own video hosting platform. Freedom. Just a slave to a private company.

Arjan den Besten : what about a youtube content creators union??

Dirk van Rensburg : No longer terminated!!!! As Some one stated in the petition, Youtube needs some sort of Magna Carta to be written up for you guys i mean your careers are on tightropes!

Arcanua the Red Mage : The term "family friendly" is highly, HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE. Youtube needs to fix their shit. You CANNOT BE 100% PG, that's COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE. Several channels have already explained this and PG channels are ALSO being hit by this. It's not a matter of being family friendly....they don't know how to handle this and are CLEARLY showing they don't know how to run youtube. I really, really hope they actually FIX this; be it they fire whoever's abusing their job right now and replace them or fix their god damn flagging system....it starts with a computer and is supposed to be then handled by a person...they're not doing that anymore....they make a ton of money already.....they could get people to actually do their job.....and actually LOOK at the videos being flagged and LOOK at their TOS. Right now they themselves have BROKEN their own TOS; don't now come up to me and say "oh they made the contract they can change it." yes they can. However there is a big problem with that.....it is a BINDING CONTRACT, yes it is subject to change however it explicitly mentions the warning system that is USED BEFORE BANS OR SUSPENSIONS EVER HAPPEN. That part has NEVER changed and CANNOT be changed WITHOUT PRIOR NOTIFICATION. Which never happened and why this is such a big deal.

G.G. : CAN WE PLEASE FIND AN ALTERNATIVE TO YOUTUBE??

slapsus : This is not some misunderstanding or misinterpretation of content on behalf of youtube. They are doing this deliberately in order to censor people who have at least some sense of personal independence and free thinking. That and channels that promote the use of weapons of any kind; and, yes, particularly those which show that weapons are not the cause of violence (obviously), but can be used with reason to defend one's self, besides also useful for recreational purposes. You can see how this goes against their attempts to disarm the public, by milking the fabricated drama of government sponsored terrorism (like the las vegas shooting, to name one of the more recent false-flags. Anyway, I'm not telling people to believe me or anyone else, but to do their own research and come up with their own answers. By the way, to Skall and everyone else who are affected by youtube's bullshit censorship (well, any kind of censorship is bullshit, but you get the point), here's a video that I found illustrates at least the public layer of what goes on with youtube's censorship attempts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1isLKThL_w

JoergSprave : I couldn't have said it any better. I personally think I will move to a platform without censoring and just post teasers for those videos on YouTube.

Mr Fisher : You don't get it skallagrim this platform isn't meant for creative people anymore it's for the jimmy kimmels and all of those morning talk show hosts like Ellen.

Jaysann22 : YouTube is probably axing all its big earners. YouTube is very likely sabotaging itself for some unseen reason we're not seeing yet....

Brennan Palm : I bet you 10 bucks that this whole chain of events was started by some overprotective soccer-mom chancing upon that video. I just don't see a youtube bot suddenly terminating a channel based on a video from a few years ago. There must have been some human element in this.

DarkOmegaMK2 : You know why youtube was so appealing at the time? Because it was basically TV but without the censorship.

Bob1942ful : Considering the channels that show how to make black powder, and a whole slew of other stuff. Plus the number of jihadist sites uTube does nothing about. This is ridiculous

Dread, the Mad Smith : I got one on one of my first videos I made 2 years ago. It sucks because when this mess started I deleted a bunch of them to be safe. I just deleted it because it was just a simple slideshow and I would never get the views on it to appeal.

The Real Carl XII : Do some Minecraft Let´s Plays. HAHAHAHHA.

Dustin Sawyer : You act as though things aren't going exactly as Youtube wants them to go. Things will only get worse because they hold all the cards.

M Ekelmann : So much for "don't be evil".

Kvothe The Bloodless : YouTube needs to completely disregard computer generated moderating. I know there are very large companies that are completely made up of human moderators and the incorrectly categorised items are minimal.

The Grinch : It's obvious YT is trying to run off all of the nonmainstream content creators who don't specialize in cat videos. Political channels, weapons, history, really anything that interests people who have IQs greater than 90 is being shown the door, slowly but surely. If you need to see Nicki Minaj twerking, though, YT'll be there for you.

Emperor Palpitoad : How can this even happen? And it isn't even copyright infringement!

PointyCheese Shooting : Signed and commented. Skall you should really consider just having a donation link. A lot of people are scared of "subscribing" to a service and just want to donate when they feel like it. Almost like a Twich streamer. I feel like a lot more people (myself included) would donate here and there when not wanting to use services such as patreon. Just a thought :) As always, keep up the amazing work, and I hope you great channel doesn't go with the wind with this new stupid rules and regs

Chemeleman : Pyromaniac Dave Slingshot Channel Thegn Thrand what's next? Spiderman Homecoming that people pay for because it probably has explosions?

Dogman690 : I think someone should make another service and we should all jump ship from youtube. They're getting worse every year

Samuel : Wouldn't making a final video announcing migration to vidme and then never publish videos on here work? Lots of people would see the video and continue watching your content there. Granted your channel growth would stunt for a good while, but with a channel this big you would think it can easily take the hit.

GreatDane : You should properly remove the Gladiatoria MS KK5013 video as it is basically a 'how to video' on how to employ the strongest weapon from medieval Europe... the pommel.

Kevin Sugrue : Problem resolved. Sanity prevailed, eventually.

nthefoothills : YouTube is getting so "Big Brother" it's surreal.

Nocturne : i'd say at this point the people running youtube ought to get shot but there aren't any people at youtube.

blackswordshinobi : I am late on this  but I support Thegn Thrand I confuse at this point why you tube will do that my self

TheGreatPumpkin : UPDATE: Thrand's channel has been restored, per the comment on the petition linked in this video description. good job everybody

bloodygentleman : I think this is exactly the problem of monopoly, once company gets too big, it becomes it's own authoritarian empire

jeremy lemings : this pisses me off. someone make a video that, at the time of posting, meets the guidelines, then some schmuck YEARS down the line changes the guidelines and now they're in no ends of trouble for something they have probably even forgot they made. What the hell.

Faux Numeration : This is why you never ever tolerate a censorship campaign, even if it means siding with "evil" ideologies. It is always a trojan horse to destroy your rights to speak, every single time.

Kendo Arasuta : Ninja fire bombs?! ... Let's face it it algorithm found it too cool for the Internet

Legend TV : They shut my old account down as well.

lordrichardlionheart : I love your solidarity!

Bryan Schmidt : The most screwed up thing is this- Thegn, Skall, Metatron.. All teaching historical things. Historical martial arts, historical curios, weapons, languages, etc.; they're in fear of going on the chopping block, or already have. Yet blatant racism, hate, and pure misinformation are free to stay up.

BowGunner : I'm really afraid for the Slingshot channel....

Laroac : Jo write Philip de Franco!

Alex Artomov : A day later, sorry but this channel is no longer exist
