hmm yes interesting. : Finally a real and constructive video about YouTube's new monetization policy. Thank you austin.

WTD Productions : Great idea! For a long time I was stuck under 1k, and got a little help and now I'm at over 17,000. Not all of my videos are the hardest to make--some are--but it's great to get recognition after a while. I'm sure all these channels will start to grow very quickly! [EDIT]: No matter what type of videos you make, you’ll find an audience that appreciates it if you put in the work and have patience

DavidGX : Very cool of you to do this. I wish more big YouTubers did something similar.

Wise Guy : They are *not* going to be under 1K anymore.

My Instant Search : You're the man! The real MVP!

TheApoke : Finally, someone fucking does it! For years I've been frustrating with large youtubers complaining about Logan Paul, and other internet scumbags giving them more attention, instead of shouting out small channels and actually making a positive difference.

Sam MacCleod : You need to do this weekly 👍🏽

where is danny black : if they were under 1000 when you made this video, you really did them a huge favor most of them over 6K subs now!! super nice of you

Emils Travel Vlog : WTFFFFF!!!??? THANK you so much Austin! So glad that my hard work finally pays of!

Haomao Productions : Action over talks, you're truly amazing!

Isaac Carlton : Props for doing this Austin! Love your approach to this situation.

Emily O'Brien : your videos are always so interesting and have the bEST quality!

Andrew Novitsky : It looks like the description of undervalued coins and ICOs but about channels. Should we invest our subs in them?

dat calculation tho : I am so glad I discovered this channel. Good job Austin!

Life With Stan : I'd love the help as well guys. I'm a vlogger and I'm under 1k as well. If you like that sort of content, come say hello :)

John Scott : Such an honorable and awesome thing for you to do for the community but the top-notch people of youtube won't even collaborate with another person's channel without them having a significant number of subscribers.

RomigBrothers : austinmcconnell You should make this a series. I think there are a lot of small YouTubers that will greatly benefit by it!!!

Johanna Renman : I looove you for doing this!

Sam MacCleod : #BalletBoyz

WarBear : well these channels dont have under 1000 subs after this video...

Êdø Štrîké : Can we make this a series?

Arrow Kaye : I wish I made the list!!!

Andrew MadeAFilm : Happy for everyone who made it into this video. YouTube has the potential to be a platform for talent, but most of the time it just pushes unoriginal, cash-in content. So videos like this are important for bypassing that. I will be checking out all of these channels.

Diamond Teeth : Oi! Don't throw philip defranco in that group of "restrictive, burdensome" opinions. That's not even close to what he said. Also phil shouts out little channels literally every day on his show in his "today in awesome" segment.

Zap Coolman : *What about me?*

Dominic Brown : Less than a day after the video is uploaded and all but one of the channels are above 1k subs.

Those Awesome Guys : Came here from austinmcconnell. Anyone else?

CREAM CH33SE BURRITO : All of these canals magically now have thousands of subscribers.

Blake Foster : Your description of the new policy maybe partially wrong as some have said that in order to be monitized you have to have gotten 1000 subs and 4000 views within the last year and this resets EVERY YEAR meaning if you don't get 1000 NEW subs every year your vids won't get monitized if you want to see someone who experienced something similar to what I described look up Lord Draconical's video on the new changes

JBomb 90 : here before 10,000 views. barely! ;)

Handsome Nature : Wow!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!

Sarcasmica : this is a good time for some self-promotion i make anything. my channel has no clear purpose other than "i make things". i do edits, touhou (a bullet-hell shooter), animation, and then some. i know you guys hate self-promotion, so i did this. bye.

BLACKOUT : Thank you so much Austin! Videos like these are incredible. We're releasing in fall of 2018, only a little more waiting!

Freedom Strider : Great video idea, a larger YouTube helping out not just 1 but 5 smaller channels, it’s amazing to see this!!! Thanks from all of us smaller creators! There are so many channels out there that deserve more watch time than they have, hope these lucky people enjoy their boost from you :)

Im Dm : inb4 everyone comments 'me' for self-promotion.

gusdoesmusic : i've been stuck at 50 subscribers for a while now, so it's nice to see you shoutout some low-key channels. Great job yet again, Austin!

Jonathan Medina : There's another youtube channel far below 1000 subs called theatrebound, it's a really cool channel about this quirky Irish chick who does all things theatre related, it's educational and fun to watch and she uploads frequently

Gatling Hawk : i just got my 200th sub and im like in awe of how many channels i know there are who are in dire need of subs. list all the channels you guys know :O

Cali Sandqvist : Wow! I just wanna say thanks on the behalf of us all! This is an awesome idea that im hoping many other youtubers will do as well! We need guys like you to keep growing even more! We need to grow together, helping each other out! MUCH LOVE FROM SWEDEN!

Twatical : Sound video, please do this more often.

DICES : Check us out, we're sort of cool (I guess). About 100 hours of work goes into every video

Hans Laguna : What's sad was... as soon as I reached my 10,000 view mark, Youtube released this news...

CK Films : I really wished I was following you on twitter when you tweeted this out. I’m about halfway to a thousand subs but I feel that my content is good enough and possibly underrated. Love watching your videos Austin!

Gaxxor : What about mine :( Lol

Crazy Chicken Animations : I was considering making a video similar to this, but there would be no purpose since I don’t have many subscribers. I’m extremely happy that you made this video and are helping out smaller channels rather than just complaining about the new rules. Thank you so much! I hope this catches on and more YouTubers start shouting out smaller channels.

Sjuar666 : Yo me too!

Nicholas Farrington : 5 Cool Channels That Used To Have Under 1,000 Subscribers

The Back Pages : Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!!!!! This means the world to us!!!

Cognito : On the topic of collaboration...I'm three weeks away from being an astrophysicist if someone wants to make science videos with me.

No Time : ..... i was just about to reach 10k views :(
