so there certainly is a risk of arbitrary enforcement and potential discrimination and in talking with you Jackie I can really see why those who are doing crafting videos are particularly concerned about this kind of enforcement without you we cannot win this this is by far the most important video I will be putting on this channel because if we don’t take action by December in January 2020 many crafting and art channels will be gone for those of you who don’t know YouTube was recently fined 120 million dollars by the FTC for serving up personalized ads to pretty much who they thought were adults but kids were using the adults app in order to navigate the platform even though this is a law that’s going to be passed in the US it is going to be implemented on YouTube as a whole so whether you are a creator internationally or in the US you will be 100% affected by these rules so what are these rules pretty much anything that seems that child appealing will be deemed as a child directed look at these I’m gonna be using a lot of air quotes so this makes it really scary for those of us who are gaming or crafting or doing arts because kids have diverse hobbies anything that is child content will be monetized in a completely different way in other words more demonetised than monetized and Philip DeFranco describes it in the best way possible right so essentially imagine you go into work and your boss says hey by the way in January we’re gonna pay a 60 to 90 percent less not only will our videos be demonetized but the comment section removed which means we cannot communicate I love communicating with you grains I love joking and interacting but these will be disabled if the Machine believes that my content is kids appealing on Twitter Bluebird describes this perfectly if YouTube thinks your content is aimed at kids for example if you use dolls kids toys etc they’ll cut off personalized ads and you won’t be able to comment on videos and you’ll have minimum engagement with the creators and the creators won’t be earning anything basically what worries me the most is that the category of child appealing is so broad it includes things like the type of music used in your videos a lot of us use pretty uppity type music the types of colors that are on your screen that is really worrisome they also said slime type things last I checked the king of random did so many different slime type experiments are these for children no are they educational yes are they family-friendly yes and that’s where the line of family-friendly and child appealing becomes really blurry and so thousands of other topics are going to be heavily impacted namely the Arts and Crafts community as well you are not immune so things like dolls and squishies and craft kits will be child appealing and so it’s really scary to know that even though as creators we can say that whether or not we are targeting kids the rules are still very vague to say that if it’s child appealing it might automatically be child directed see the problem here if I’m not targeting kids but if it’s appealing to kids the machine might actually put me as child content less monetization no comments so the issue here is instead of looking at what we’re doing with the item it’s probably going to be looking at the item objectively hey here’s a doll that dolightful is transforming into a work of art which is a blank canvas now that’s a doll that’s for children do you monetize hey look here’s a squishy that Mariah Elizabeth is turning into an upcycled the new work of art nah it’s a squishy that’s for children hey here’s nerdecrafter reviewing a craft kit to make sure that those with the buying power can make informed decisions nah bro that’s a toy that’s kids are you using colored pencils by Crayola to make a review or trying to make an epic piece of art that is also deemed child appealing potentially what if you’re drawing an anime character or some kind of Disney character in your work of art or sculpting a Disney or anime character well guess what characters are deemed as child appealing all these things in the back I’m a dork it doesn’t take that into consideration it’s just going to see characters and automatically classify them as toys or child appealing and so as it is the rules right now are going to harm so many of us on YouTube and when I talk to someone at YouTube and told them that what I’m doing is helping adults make informed decisions they said that it’s the topic of craft kits that I should be staying away from so even YouTube is worried about this what means I should be extra worried about this and trust me grains today I really wanted to make a very different video I wanted to craft or review something but if I didn’t put this out there I would be a hypocrite and not trying to help and not try to help I really want this community to stay alive I still want to make videos I still want to interact with your grains and I want all of us here in the arts and crafts community also to get together and make sure that we don’t lose what we’ve worked so many years on making a bigger community we can’t let this rule pass as it is and the good news is we can take action if we work together by the way for this next part I’m going to be saying the word male and female quite a bit in no way is this discriminatory towards gender identity please understand I’m just using these terms as in the traditional sense and if you think about it in the arts and crafts community the topics that are deemed child appealing are mostly female type content and so the FTC is putting female type content as childish so if we’re into painting and squishies and dolls that were transforming them into works of art they are potentially going to be flagged as child content child appealing which makes absolutely no sense because many of the creators in the arts and crafts community do we use things like power tools and machines how is that fair for female type hobbies to be classified as childish these are topics that also take a lot of work and practice to perfect it’s almost like they’re saying save the women and children and yet now the boat is sinking but they’re letting us all sink together female topics are not childish topics let me be clear the collateral damage of this new FTC rule is going to hurt female creators because of our female type hobbies again I am NOT saying that there are male creators who don’t do this I’m just saying that it’s that category in itself is hurting a lot of us female creators just think about it think of your favorite creators who are doing arts and crafts and so even though when I talk to someone at YouTube again they did say that we can appeal the decision by the machine that decision is not reversible now probably some of you are like but Jackie what’s the point of appealing if you can’t reverse it my guess is that YouTube wants to protect us because if the FTC thinks that our content is child appealing and we didn’t do the right decision we can be fined up to 42,000 dollars per video you heard that right if we said we are not targeting kids and the Machine doesn’t catch us but then the FTC watches our video we can define 42,000 dollars per video that they think is child directed because they can be like ha you’re using a squishy which means that is for kids now as a creator I love again I’m gonna say this I love YouTube I want to protect it in every way possible but if you like YouTube has its hands tied because it wants to follow the law however the law can be changed if we work together and that’s why I need you so much right now so what can we do there are links in description box below in order to comment to the FTC don’t click yet don’t click listen to me listen the FTC actually wants to hear from both creators and viewers on YouTube they are actually really open to hearing our arguments which means that if we can make smart well argumented pieces of comments the chances of overturning the rule as it is, is pretty high but we need at thousands of comments there’s also a petition in description box below if you’re not sure what you can discuss and what points you can discuss there’s also a link for a document in description box below about different talking points please make sure that you are polite and make sure that your sentences are clear and coherent and all of these links were given to us by Jeremy Johnston who is currently a non practicing attorney who’s been at the forefront trying to change these rules and meeting with the FTC so please please please be as polite as possible because the FTC wants to learn they don’t know much about YouTube but they really want to learn about it and this is where we come in as a community to educate them what does YouTube need to us and how is it that girly topics are not childish topics so we really need you so let’s send them a thousands of comments so they know that personalized ads are not a bad thing either I personally would rather get an ad for the new sculpting tool than a horror movie or if a parent gives permission to a kid to use their account that is consent to get personalized ads because the other thing is if you are watching crafting videos regardless of your age if YouTube deems that that is child appealing you not count as an adult anymore watching these videos it will count you as a child so we have to make sure that these kinds of topics are not put indirectly into child appealing or child directed simply because we’re using dolls or craft kits or art supplies for those of you are still naysayers and really want to have more information on this I had an interview with Jeremy asking him some of the questions that are really important to the arts and crafts community as well as some of the vagueness of the FTC the rules are so vague that’s what makes it scary and according to Jeremy also unconstitutional because even though I am NOT personally targeting kids what is child appealing if I am NOT targeting kids and what is the line between family-friendly and child appealing so please please please today send that comment sign that petition and so enough jibba jabba on my side because I am so I’m so invested in this in all seriousness though I really don’t want to lose you grains and I don’t want to lose what we’ve built here together and so I want to introduce you to Jeremy Johnston he’s also creator here on YouTube and he has a family vlog channel this is an interview we’ve had together so bear with me here hey Jeremy please briefly tell my subscribers about yourself and your channel hey Jackie thanks so much for letting me be a part of this video so I’m Jeremy Johnston I have five little kids and five years ago one of them came up and wanted to watch some videos on YouTube and I started searching and I came across family vlogs which looked like just home videos to me and I was amazed that millions of people were watching as I dug deeper into and kind of saw the genre and what it was all about we decided it was something we wanted to do and so we feel really blessed today we now have two billion views on YouTube two million subscribers as I’ve learned about what’s going on with the FTC I’ve wanted to speak out and let people know what’s happening and what we can do to try to make a difference at the time that we started YouTube I was a civil litigator a practicing attorney since we’ve gone full time to YouTube I’m no longer actively practicing and I’m not intending any of this to be specific legal advice for you and you’re sharing some of my opinions as I’ve reviewed these things so we all know that the FTC is worried mainly at child directed content but that term is really vague as someone who does arts and crafts for an adult type of content does learn I’m trying to talk here so even though I’m doing a crafting and art channel for mainly adult type viewers I was pretty alarmed at the article that was released by because it said that there were thousands of topics that would be affected by this so even though they briefly mentioned that slime stuff’s technically slime as a topic is a scientific topic it is a chemical reaction but there are also hundreds of channels that don’t necessarily just play with slime but they also focus on different reactions with different ingredients and I use the example of king of random in no way is king of random targeting children but of course kids have so many hobbies that they really enjoy that will they watch it yeah they could I’m rambling I’m sorry so now my concern really has to do with the Arts and Crafts community so we use materials like squishies dolls colorful pencils craft kits and so on as it is with the vagueness of the definition do you think that arts and crafts fall under the risk of being put under child directed or child appealing categories one of the big problems with the government regulating content is no one really knows where they’re going to draw the lines they haven’t defined clearly what child directed means but they have given us ten factors we can look to, to see whether or not our content is child directed the problem that was even within those ten factors it’s unclear how we should measure those factors or define them for example one of the specific factors is whether or not you are featuring celebrities that children like to watch that raises all kinds of questions you know like for me with our channel we know that we have a lot of viewers we don’t know exactly how many of them are kids does that mean that we are celebrities that children like to watch and if so is it based on how many subscribers you have or how many views or what percentage it is and if it is based on those things where do you draw the line of when you are a celebrity or not that’s just one example of the 10 another question is what’s the subject matter and so what subject matter is child directed or not you know within crafting if you’re talking about colorful pencils or slime or different things that children may be attracted to does that count as subject matter that is child director or not no one really knows so there certainly is a risk of arbitrary enforcement and potential discrimination and in talking with you Jackie I can really see why those who are doing crafting videos are particularly concerned about this kind of enforcement a lot of the crafting videos include things that are attractive to children but will that be considered a child directed no one knows and that’s a big problem because when we’re facing the kind of penalties that could come about with this regulation you want to know whether or not you’re breaking the law or not another category worries me is the idea of characters would creating fan art of a cartoon or animated character also be put under the child directed or child content it’s a really good question because any type of content for a general audience is going to do some things that are maybe more specific or attractive to children so for example with Aladdin coming up recently if you were doing a craft that was around Aladdin the FTC could come and say look this is child directed because you’re doing something about Aladdin okay Jeremy this this part here is what bugs me the most and this is the part that I feel very strongly about because I know that even though it is not directly targeted at female creators it is collateral many of us here in the community do use colorful things art supplies craft supplies that could be a child appealing even though we are not necessarily child-directed so I feel like many traditional female type content and hobbies are put into the childish categories and this scares me because many people use arts and crafts as a way to deal with their own anxiety and just have a hobby there’s nothing wrong than having a hobby arts and crafts is not just for children so as a female creator in an already male-dominated platform it really feels like if these rules pass we as female creators would have a harder time climbing the ladder and making content that we enjoy naturally again I am using the terms as male and female in the traditional sense please great understand just I’m doing these trust me I grew up playing with action figures alright okay here’s my question so as it is the FTC’s of big rules will mainly affect female creators in the craft see and artsy space is that a stretch for me to assume given of course the vagueness of the actual definition of child directed or child appealing I think that there’s certainly a risk and a concern about discrimination and this being unfairly regulated against women I think it’s especially scary if the FTC does decide to expand the regulation of Copa to include not just child directed content but child attractive content I think it’s fair to say that children may be more drawn to or attracted to stuff like crafting or other things that female creators are primarily talking about we’re making on YouTube and this is a big deal this is part of why we want to talk to the FTC about this and let our voices be heard that there’s big concerns about them trying to regulate content especially when they’re using a law that’s all about privacy Copa is about putting power in control in protecting their children’s personal information online but instead the FTC is using it to remove parents from the process and ignore parents choice we know from the statistics that 81% of parents let their children 13 and under watch YouTube if parents are consenting to that it isn’t something where we should come in and punish creators and when we start regulating that content the government is on dangerous ground are starting to have discriminatory regulation my next question is for channels who are not directed at children but who would be flagged as child appealing and potentially child directed if we lose our comment section and even our monetization what would happen to the platform I’ve been primarily talking about the FTC and the concerns around government regulation but there are a lot of unknowns and a lot of questions about how YouTube is gonna come in and police this situation as well I think it’s unclear right now how YouTube would look at a review of a arts and crafts kit one good thing about the way the regulation is set up is that it will be video specific so say that that video was flagged as being more for children or a concern about that you could potentially lose comments or personalized ads on that video but that doesn’t mean that the whole channel is gonna be shut down or impacted because of that and the good news is Jeremy is that the FTC wants to learn about it so there are different steps that we can take here and you really did put quite a few resources together grains by the way these are going to be in description box below but Jeremy really did put things together and one last question YouTube says it’ll treat any view from a child appealing content as coming from a child regardless of your age whether you’re twenty five forty five sixty five if they deem a topic or children even if you’re an adult and you enjoy crafts and arts you will be categorized on YouTube as a child viewer so the question for you is how will this impact our content does this mean that the person view doesn’t count for us as creators yeah it’s very difficult how little control we have and it’s ironic because what the FTC has said is they’re changing their enforcement to now consider creators as operators as though we’re running our own website the problem though is that we don’t have any controls over the operation so for example on our channel we make documentary content that we never intended to be directed at children we wanted it for a general audience but we don’t have controls over what YouTube does with that and how they suggested so they started placing our stuff on YouTube kids and people are watching it there but I have no control over what’s on YouTube kids or who they’re suggesting those videos too so it is frustrating if this can come up to harm us or lead to us being considered child directed over things that we don’t have control over the other thing too is we know what our intent is and who our intended audiences but if they expand this regulation that becomes less of a factor because they’ll just be looking at who’s watching or enjoying the content but again we shouldn’t be looked down upon just because kids also enjoy our content I want to make family-friendly content I’m okay with the fact that children find our content clean and entertaining but it doesn’t make sense to me that we should be penalizing those creators who are making that type of content that’s the kind of result that’s gonna cause more quality good family-friendly content to shrink while more mature content grows that’s the problem people are gonna have an incentive to try to prove that they’re not child-directed this is that concern where you’re gonna have creators feeling like they need to mature fi their content maybe adding language that’s more for adults or topics that are more extreme where they can point out and say look I’m not child-directed it is really concerning that the way that this regulation is being crafted is to focus on the content because even as an adult if they’re watching our content and they want to participate in it they want to comment or they want it to be suggested they lose that opportunity if it’s deemed as child directed and so adults aren’t having the opportunity to have an experience as an adult they’re going to be treated like they’re little kids and it’s not fair to those people in our audience who want to participate and have comments and other features that would be available on normal general audience content I really appreciate you taking the time to talk about this issue I just invite people to sign our petition send a comment to the FTC us letting our voice be heard really can make a difference the FTC is sincerely trying to do what’s best they just didn’t have as much information about how this was impacting creators or those negative unintended consequences that this was going to cost us letting them know about those things on a big scale can make a difference in the decisions they’re making about changes that they should make on their enforcement and regulation of copa so thank you so much Jeremy for being at the forefront of this it really means a lot to a lot of us creators we really can’t stay quiet on this we have to send as many comments as possible you grains you viewers our subscribers you matter so much without you we cannot win this so please make sure that you send a really polite and a very well-written comment to the FTC I’ll leave the link down below all these links were put together by Jeremy because he’s been going to visit them and talk with them and they’re very open so it means that we just have to be very vocal and also sign the petition I’ll leave a comment that I wrote for them in description box below and if you want a sample of something that you could potentially send to them I’ll leave a sample down below change it tweak it to make it as personal to you and your experience as possible to make sure that they hear us out thank you so much grant I will see you on Friday with a crafty or review video I’ll see you later

  1. Please watch the video ALL the Way! The issue isn't with YouTube. YouTube is following a LAW. We need to change the LAW as it is. Please check these links after the video:

  2. I've read through the COPPA rules – that have been in place since 2013 and ARE NOT CHANGING for at least a few more years – and this is 100% YouTube passing the buck onto creators.
    It is possible to say that YouTube creators could be "operators" according to the definition, but the fact that we do not knowingly collect information from children as we do have any control over how and when YouTube collects information about the users viewing videos would be a strong defense against any infections YouTube has made on anyone's channels.
    Again there have been no changes to the FTC rules in over 5 years, and they fined YouTube for collecting data -not its users. The danger coming to Jackie's and other's channels is completely from YouTube not the FTC

  3. Yikes.. this is gonna be hard for many communities.. I know the gacha community isnt the very family friendly community..yet many gacha creators are family friendly such as Emily kitty, itz_angiee , and many more! It's very scary since they're one of the biggest gacha creators and everyone depends on them.. if they're gone and not be able to communicate theres a huge problem..same with the art community many creators are family friendly..Really..some families dont care about what you watch as long as it isnt bad like porn , cursing, or etc..
    It's scary for many family friendly creators for losing many supporters or fans not being able to communicate..YouTube is just gonna be worst and worst..just wait until theres atleast 200,000 creators with cursing and dirty jokes.. I hope this rule changes.. becuase the whole site is just not okay anymore.

  4. I hate these new guidelines. Absolutely hate them. And these are the main 2 reasons
    1. There is a difference between family-friendly and child aimed content
    2. Crafting channels can be dangerous to young children!
    Take Dollightful for example. She cuts apart and resembles her customs as a part of her customizing process. Cutting things is dangerous. She uses MSC (Mr. Super Clear), which is toxic to breath in.
    Wtf YouTube???

  6. My life is surrounded by art, I draw everyday, I love seeing what others make, what they like, getting inspired by those people. For me it's one of my escapes from my daily life and realaxes (sp?) Me from stress. I do not want to be viewed as childish. And that I do find it pretty sexist to put "female based things" as childish. Lots of things that females do is not childish and isnt for children at all, like subjects they will talk about on YouTube. Colours? Why? Adults are aloud to have colourful things. And people can actually give information that creators do not know if they want to know. It's a giant community and I really don't want to see it go up in flames. I do want to be a creator myself one day as so many artists has inspired me to try. And ik I do like to draw gory and things that could care children. Because I like to draw, I don't want to be seen as childish. Because some things I like to draw all cutesy and others are very frightening and I don't want children to see something scary. And I don't want other amazing creators get demonized for something they love to do and that it's their life, and that they wont be able to communicate with viewers. Please don't change YouTube. Thank you.


  8. First off i dont think its right to claim sexism thats pushing it .
    Second i hear a lot of people saying its not yt its the government and i dis agree there too . The govt. doesnt allow kids to be tracked …ok…there are other advertising strategies they could use like matching content with products , and tracking time watched instead of individual views ..if they have millions to spend paying fines they can afford to pay programmers to tweak the code so it can be profitable for creators as well as for yt . Clearly yt has its own agenda and they're using this situation to facilitate changes they want to make and blame the govt. for their decisions …

  9. If they demonitize Jack Stauber because he makes animations i will scream. He's my favorite musicion and one of my favorite artists and i love looking in the comments to see all the theories about his songs and bruh if he gets demonitized or fined. And what about lavendertown? Or the endless minecraft channels I watch?

  10. these rules might also be affecting the minecraft and gacha community of youtube.
    Youtube: hey look heres minecrafter1234 doing complicated redstone? nah thats a kid. look heres gachatuber12345 making very beautiful animation memes? nah, thats a kid

  11. So welcome to vlogtube, to day we are going to imagine that we are making a sculpture think that you have all the materials needed then lets start creating the shape of our creature don't worry if you are having a hard time making a perfect circle, we can still change that since we are just imagining it now that you have a circle in your head we are going to imagine a pair of legs somewhat like similar to a fan.

  12. What if they hit us with the 1-2 and kicks "child appealing" content creators/children off the platform for being not commercially viable

  13. I would write to the FTC, but being a child myself (age 12) I am scared to do so. But, all my support and love goes out to all that are currently struggling with these new rules coming up! I signed the petition, I wish the whole Arts & Craft's community the best of luck!

  14. I don't understand a minor can go onto say Xfinity and if you setup parent controls to what ratings you want you allow your kid to watch and even what channels your kid can watch. So, Why can't Youtube come up with a similar system? Why doesn't kid channels not have different guidelines for creators to follow then mainstream stream youtubers?.. Not have to make unnecessary rules.. Are their new rules going to stop the inappropriate "learning" videos in kid channels , because even on the modest restricted setting. They are still appearing on the side scroller on my nephews tablet when clicks on Alex Show… Yes, tell me exactly how these new rules going to stop this problem?..I assume this is all about the kids right?

  15. OH HEACK NAH what kind of person made these rules I can’t sign the petition because my mom won’t let me but I will send this to all my friends and urge them to sign it I love you NerdEcrafter and WE will help you We will make shure things go well and you will be able to make content with no worry that something will happen because not only I but WE your subscribers your grains care and this won’t stop us from loving your content WE WILL RISE UP AS THE GRAINS WE WILL RISE UPPPPPPPP!

    Edit: not only you but also you tubers because NO ONE deserves this

  16. Omg i can't understand why there is so much noise. Just give kids the goddamn YouTube Kids! It even already exists! Make access to YouTube only for signed up people 18+ and in the same time YouTube Kids without any registration
    Sorry i'm so angry i can't even write in English properly. Какого черта вообще происходит, люди вроде взрослые, почему до самых простых решений допетрить не могут???

  17. Why doesn't YouTube just kick kids off of the main site/app and expand on the kid's app? If they can't treat kids the same as adults then separate them. That seems to be the most logical way to do things. If parents let their kids use the main app, they are consenting to giving their kids data over.

    Edit: I did actually sign the petition through your link. I'm usually very suspicious of links posted online. I think this is the only petition I have signed online. In this case I trust you to verify the links you put in your description.

  18. I'm sorry but these new rules literally just had me like "AHHH WTFFFF" I don't understand why this is happening. The logic is just so confusing. I'll add a more coherent reply when I send a comment in the links but man, things just keep getting more confusing and strict in an unnecessary way. I hope we can beat this, so SaltE and NerdE can stick around. ❤ I'll do whatever I can!

  19. YouTube is so, so broken…:( Law or not, that’s messed up. You can’t even talk to your followers or they can’t talk to you, in the comments?

  20. OMG I’m sorry but what will happen to the roblox players?!? Like Jeruhmih?! Or Meganplays? I’m so done… 😤😒😞

  21. I thought we made woman rights a thing hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Are they taking them away? Are they calling us childish? Are they making talents hidden? I just want to know what they think they are doing.

  22. This is very scary and terrifying to me…🥺🥺😰😰😥😥 They're breaking something that was already fixed. Also my nephew likes watches WWE, action stuff, venim and IT , I guess this means they're child-ish as well.🤨

  23. Jackie, when I attempted to send a comment it wouldn't allow it to send, I tried it with a VPN and still nothing, so I tried on a laptop and it still wouldn't… Anyone else having these issues?

  24. if doll repaint videos are automatically put into the childish category, THAT'S a problem. literally just watched a Junji Ito Uzumaki doll repaint (for those who don't know, Junji Ito is a horror manga author and Uzumaki is one of his works. it is FAR from kid-friendly.)

  25. Omg but all your sculptures….. your drawings…. IM SO DONE…honestly I might just stop using YouTube if this does happen cause I’m going to me so angry…..|I|I•~• to shame YouTube, to shame..

  26. Please get rid of the laws. I love watching moriah, nerdecrafter, ect. I really love these youtubers, and I want to still be able to watch them when I'm sad or just wanna watch something funny. Pleaseèe get rid of them, if you do I will be so thankful. Can the FTC please get rid of these laws they aren't very smart because it isn't fair to the people who aren't doing it. I just started a YouTube channel and I would really be sad if it got taken down or owe any money. I love listening to my favorite songs, so please stop. Comment this hashtag if you agree: #StoptheFTC comment the hashtag if you want it to stop

  27. Crafting, toys, family vlogs, possibly gamers and many other popular YouTubers who have an under 13 audience will be affected! We need the government to stop seeing kid friendly creators as horrible monsters and see us instead as quality entertainment that serves a general audience. Today’s generation watches YouTube not TV! Thank you for making this video!

  28. I appreciate that they recognized that they don't know what they're dealing with. the deadline was originally October 24th but it was changed when they LEARNED that non-directed ads make significantly less money. but they really should have done research and asked for feedback before making ANY decisions on rules, it's just sent everyone into a panic. And the vague rules can easily make it impossible for youtube to be a full-time job unless its an already well-established creator that can consistently get sponsors, since family-friendly videos could lead to no personalized ads and non-family-friendly content gets demonetized.

  29. This is not just going to affect creators and viewers. It's also going to affect advertisers. That, in turn, will affect revenue for YouYube as well. Every aspect is going to be skewed in inappropriate directions due to meddling by at least some uniformed, illinformed, or misinformed so-called leaders of the country. What a mess!

  30. Parents can sign their kids up for YouTube kids if they need it so don’t mess with our channels cause THERE IS YOUTUBE KIDS

  31. Would you be able to clarify whether or not non US people can have a say on this, please? I'm guessing that it is maybe yes, as you are in Canada.

  32. YouTube is for all ages but if they care that much about where they want peoples channels to be, why do they have YouTube kids that’s the point of YouTube kids MADE FOR FREAKING KIDS

  33. For some reason if this does happen we can only hope that they’ll realize that it’s wrong and we will only hope to deal with it for a short period of time

  34. I signed it the petition!! You and all other creators have my support all the way Jackie!!! I’m working on my comment as we speak!! Stay strong and keep fighting!! I’ve seen the creators of YouTube get through so much, whos to start we can’t get past this!

  35. I get that YouTube wants to follow the FTC's rules, but this is going way too far. They're messing with creators livelihoods, especially female crafting channels. The craft kit reviews that you do really help me figure out what to buy and what not to buy, avoiding major disappointment. (And, can we just talk about how having anime characters in the background can automatically be flagged as 'for children'? Because, many anime titles are NOT for kids in any way.)

  36. NO YOU CANNOT LEAVE THE THE GRAINS i hope you get lucky and i have a YouTube video and i have no ideas on what i should do and I don’t want to quit making YouTube videos what am I going to do good lucky

  37. I fear for CookieswirlC's channel. I'm almost 32 and I love her channel, and I'd hate to see her and others hurt by this. I signed the petition. This is insane, and it's kind of a continued war on women…but that's another thing. <3

  38. me watching: WHAT IM almost 12 DUDE IM NOT A CHILD

    jackie:crafts are done if we dont help

    also me:help meeeeee youtube is my life so is jackie moriah and more . nooooo

  39. would this allow youtubers like guava juice a bigger advantage? no one to challenge their kits would allow for more purchasing power?

  40. If it does pass I think creaters need to slip in adult topics or something to make it so there’s no way it could be shown to kids.

  41. What i dont understand is why parents cant do their job and watch what their children are doing. I dont have kids but if i did I know i would check out what my kids are into online and i wouldn't blame YouTube for and ad thats on a video. And i wouldn't blame a YouTuber for swearing and my child has stumbled apon them I'd just say they cant watch them till they are older or teach them why they cant say them. Parents do your damn job and look after your kids its not a YouTubers job to try to make their content work for your child.

  42. See over half of YouTube is child content.Youtube is basically killing its own business.They are going to louse so much money!!!Those idiots are killing there own business!!!!I am aware that this is the law and they need to follow it but…… You tube should also be against this law they are goi g to go broke!!!!!

  43. This is ridiculous. Especially since their are probably more child youtube viewers AND YOUTUBE than adults. This is a ridiculous law and I think that it's terrible because the only thing that adults really watch on YouTube is how to vids and reaction vids.

  44. FYI Poppen Atelier has reported that creators are already being demonetized and their content is being flagged as “for kids.” She has had dozens of videos marked in the last several hours

  45. How is this anyone's fault?! Seriously do parents no longer use filters on their kids devices or monitor them anymore?! We are losing our favorite YouTube videos and letting them discriminate against so many people because of this! #outrage

  46. My last name is Mexican lol so when I put my last name into the box asking for it, the website immediately switched to being in Spanish and I couldn't read it lol

  47. I’m about to turn 13 (5 days from now) and I love Jackie, Moriah and Dollightful! So does my mom and couisns. We will sit for hours doing our nails, face masks and hair while watching crafty videos, we don’t want have the thing that bonds us as a family to be gone. That’s how we get along so well.

  48. This is so horrible and I really hope that you can stay on here between you and sika you make me laugh all of the time I also wear my purple yOu DiD iT wRoNg sweatshirt all the time~ stay positive~

  49. This law is also endangering at least 1 creator currently. A young slimer currently has a new video where she's reviewing another slimer. She shows the package and clearly visible for 30 seconds is her name and current address but no comments so no one can tell her.

  50. Because I have a school email that links to my account, I must be a student. My account is being shut down to avoid children having accounts. There is no way to just transfer anything so I have had to spend time downloading every video I have made. Next I will make a new account and upload them on that. Then I will go through my blog and change the embedded info for 2009 to 2019. Teachers don't really have the time to do this, but it is a good way to share with parents and ex students, and to encourage new people to come to the school. I know how I'll be spending a good chunk of my southern hemisphere summer holidays.
