FINALLY the old Half-Life 3 Confirmed meme is no more lol.


In other news: I had to basically purge my YouTube channel of my video game videos due FTC/COPPA pretty much going after YouTubers. If they catch your video being too child friendly you can be fined $42,000.00 or have your channel completely removed after the first of 2020. I probably could fight if a charge against me comes up but I'm not taking chances.
Sakiri
You can flag the channel as not child friendly. It's what I did.

I'm also thinking of moving to bitchute but I don't have any of my old videos anymore and I don't feel like downloading hundreds of hours of videos to reupload.

I play games exclusively T to M. I refuse to make my channel child friendly, and Im not monetized. They shut me off, whatever. Just don't close my dang Google account because I use that email for everything important.

Especially when changing the email requires access to the old...

The only term I accept is a flock of crows biggrin.gif

If it looks like a bird and flies like a bird then it travels in a flock. goodjob.gif
mirocu
It's not a plane or a Superman; it's a flock of crows! laugh.gif


...unless "flock" means something else in English.. tongue.gif
ghastley
I'm unsure if crows are like geese, in having one collective noun when flying (skein) and another when on land (gaggle). A murder of crows implies a gathering on the ground to me. Or at least in a tree.

A parliament of owls would likewise always be a grounded one, as they fly individually, not in flocks.

There is no collective noun for the Solitary Albatross. biggrin.gif

Why make it so dfficult?? rollinglaugh.gif


Then again, Inuits have like 200 names for snow or something tongue.gif

Google says it means "crust".

If you're talking about snow I'd assume you're referring to the crunchy ice film it can get?

Just guessing at this point. Lol.

Flagging a channel or individual video(s) as Not Kid Friendly means nothing if some lacky at the FTC decides the videos in question are indeed kid friendly. Here's another video discussing this. For now, mine all remain flagged as Not Kid Friendly, but I'll re-evaluated prior to the beginning of the year, by which time guidance for video game channels will hopefully be more clean.

That's why the part that I exclusively play T to M rated games come in.

ESRB is the end all be all when it comes to game rating. If the game itself is not rated for children, the video is not made for children.

Doesn't work for everyone, and don't think Twitch will solve this. Twitch will be required to do the same thing.. not collect information on children.

They can also close your account if they deem it not financially viable, which mine also falls under, because it's not monetized. I don't want money for my channel. Especially since it involves giving Youtube my banking information.
mirocu
Financially viable? It's a video sharing site for independent creators. Uploaders are not supposed to be employees of Youtube.


Or is that just me from 2007 talking? wink.gif
SubRosa
So why is it that collecting information about children's online habits is bad (which I am not arguing), but collecting information on adults is good? Should not the law protect everyone of all ages from mega-corporations spying on us and selling our information to the highest bidder?

Because children cannot legally give consent.

As an adult, you presumably are intelligent enough to know what you're getting into when you sign up.

But most people don't read user agreements, just click okay, and go with that.

Not that it's good, but that's just how it is.

Companies are out to make money. They're not going to do something like host youtube out of the goodness of their hearts. That's why Google bought it. Because they thought it'd be a great money maker. It's running at a loss every year and they're trying to reverse that.

Making it so that creators can't make money on kids videos is going to drive off a lot of creators. As it is, if you get falsely copyright striken you can't even contest it because the accuser is the one that gets to approve or deny your appeal.

Youtube is NOT creator friendly and hasn't been for a very long time. This is why I'm thinking of just moving to bitchute for my video hosting. I'll still use youtube, because I watch other stuff like instructional videos, and a lot of twitch streamers host their streams on it(being in Europe, I miss the streams of all my favorites), but I won't host anything new there.

Bitchute requires you to be 16 to make an account, or did when I signed up. It's not really for kids. It'll probably have to adapt a bit, but I'm not sure how much information they actually collect on people. It's still relatively new.

All this fiasco about kids is probably because of that ElsaGate thing

Elsagate?

No basically YouTube bragged it's the best place on the internet for kids, FTC said, "Oh... you aren't collecting data on those kids are you?" And then YouTube was like "crap there goes all our money" and got fined.

Now they can't gather info on kids, but they still want adults info, so they're going to punish anyone they think is making kid friendly content(which isn't allowed to be monetized) and lying about it to monetize.

Kid friendly content before this was considered safest for advertisers by people still wanting paid. Now that strat is backfiring because that stuff can't be monetized, up the content a notch to more adult oriented and the advertisers won't work with you because you're too crass.

PayPal, patreon and subscribestar have already dropped people for various reasons so they're not 100% reliable. People doing YouTube as a career are panicking for right reason, especially people in the toy, games and educational sectors.

Thanks man.

Results weren't as bad as I was afraid of but definitely worse than the first set of results, and definitely lower than it should be(eGFR of 59 vs >80 as should be), but I hear good things about this doctor so I'm not too worried.

Only thing that's getting me is that ultrasound. Probably won't have it til next year.

That's not good enough for me. :/
mirocu
Not good enough?

Lol bird.

Well I've started a new diet today. In the mornings I'm drinking a protein shake, then a salad for lunch probably dinner as well and finally some mixed nuts for snacking. I'm trying to lose some weight before I become Dark Reaper the Hutt.

Don’t forget to throw in some cardio if you can. That’s important. 30 minutes is a good start and won’t take a lot of your time. Good luck!

I got a secret weapon in the works for that. The Switch has a game on it called Ring Fit adventure that uses the motion controls in the JoyCons to do a some decent workouts on. I might be getting it next week.

Well if you do become the Hutt, take comfort in knowing that Jedi mind tricks don't work on you wink.gif biggrin.gif

Probably why I have kidney disease.

Join a martial arts gym as well, my man. It’s both fun and uplifting. I’d recommend either Judo or Russian Sambo, but USA has a weak scene in both tbh. So go for boxersicing and recreational BJJ; the advent of MMA should ensure you have a gym that could offer both in whatever area you’re in.

I'm always an advocate for Kyokushin karate but mebbe that's a bit too "serious" if you just want to have fun biggrin.gif
