    13:22 100% All of this situation with age restriction could be solved by just having YouTube tell us what part of the video triggered the restriction so we can cut it out and solve the issue, I hope they really consider this, it seems like slowly but surely they are being more transparent to us and hopefully we get to a point where all this won’t happen again!

      Because there is no valid reason for why. It’s all biased and personal

      @Jack Wrath I wonder how many of these are actual bots, and how many are just people quoting them to make fun of the bots.

      I certainly hope so.

      It was because sell reps forgot about youtube kids and promised all advertisers kid, family and advertisers friendly space on normal youtube. And so when advertisers found their ads on things they didn’t expect we got the adpocalypse among other things. Had they remembered youtube kids and directed advertisers that wanted family or general public friendly advertiser space in that direction and added youtube teens and youtube family which where for over 11 but under 18 and for just general family friendly content they could have split advertisers (and users and creators) between the four and not have to worry about advertisers or public outrage because advertisers and public can pick what they feel is right for them. Youtube kids for under 11, youtube teens for 12 to 17. Yout7be family for 12 and up that is family/general
      public and advertisers friendly and then just normal youtube that is for 11 (or maybe even like 14 or 16) and up but it may have non-family/non-advertiser friendly videos that they may run across and that their ads may play on. Basically browse and advertise at your own risk you have been warned and if you come across something it’s not our problem unless it is illegal.

      If they had just done that they could have pleased the advertisers and the crybaby public while also protecting kids and also keeping creativity and open sharing of ideas that was earlier youtube before they went ideological and censor happy.

    It’s good that Sean thinks out loud here and shares it with everyone because this is a logical conclusion. If the copyright tools can evolve to let claimants identify and creators to rectify music or video claims (by cutting out segment entirely or the soon-to-be reality of dropping the music altogether and keeping audio with AI tools!) then you’d think it obvious that the same systems, or close to them, could be put in place to deal with age restriction violations. 👍

    The problem is that all of these restrictions are not to “protect” children or content creators but to protect Youtube from getting sued, like they did when they were sued for illegally collecting childrens’ information for advertising, and for keeping advertisers happy to optimize profit for the company – which includes sleazy practices like flagging BIPOC slangs or discussion about anything LGBTQ+ related.

    The perfect example for the former is 5-Minute Crafts. Anne Reardon has so many videos not only debunking them but showing how DANGEROUS so many of their “hacks” are. These videos were originally catered towards children and CLEARLY continue to be because they’re the easiest population to keep clicking on video after video. And yet they’ve never been age restricted. Why? Because their MILLIONS of views, comments, and interactions are making Youtube way too much money to pass up. And they are one of the most [in]famous channels on the platform, so there is no way Youtube just hasn’t heard about them.

    Then you have traumatized human beings combing through videos of violence, abuse, and other horrors of humanity – suddenly a video with implied boobs doesn’t seem so bad, even if it triggers the algorithm, which is a blanket system.

    I do believe there are good hearted people at Youtube doing their best, but I also have my doubts as to how many there really are, and it makes me sad that this platform that was so beautiful in connecting people and fostering communities has become a minefield of anxiety for the creators and just another place with bombardments of ads and overly catered content for the viewers.

    And thank you so much for continuing to speak on this. I’ve been on Youtube since its conception and have seen this topic go up and down over and over again, and I really hope this is the time that actually creates a breakthrough and the change that everyone is looking for.💕

      When you trust in God and cast your cares (worries, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts) upon him, they will be NO MORE!
      Know that there is power in the name Jesus Christ! His name casts out demons and heals!

      The world is wicked, evil, and of the devil.
      I too, was a wicked sinner of the world before I opened my heart to God. I am living proof of God’s work and fruitfulness! He is an active God who hears the prayers of his! God’s children are set apart (holy) and righteous. The devil is a liar that comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy; that includes your relationship with God.

    • Jesus Saves! says:

      Jesus Christ died for our sins, rose from the dead, and gives salvation to everyone who has faith in him. True faith in Jesus will have you bear good fruit and *drastically* change for the better! Those led by the Holy Spirit do not abide in wickedness.

      God is three in one; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit! Bless him!

      As I am led by the Holy Spirit, nothing I state is a lie, but the truth of God. Anyone who tells you differently is misinformed or a liar. They do not know God, nor led by him.

      Anyone who *claims* to be a Christian and is against what I am doing, for any reason; the Holy Spirit does not dwell within them. They know not God, read his word, and their religion is in vain. Do not hear them, they will mislead you, the lost cannot guide the lost.

      I will screenshot this comment to hold against YouTube, just in case this video gets taken down. Thank you for this information. We. Must. Stop. YouTube!

    • Cyrix says:

      A good thing to note is that Ann Reardon also got one of her videos deleted for a couple of days by exposing a fatal life hack. It happened recently.

    “they don’t want their creators to fail, they want them to succeed.” 100% agree with this, unlike Twitch. They’ve learned that if their content creators succeed then they will succeed also.

    Jack casually using the transparency that YouTube should:

    Thank you, Sean. Much love to you. ❤️

  6. RADAL says:

    Happens to me too. Nowadays I feel unsafe with most of my videos that are currently monetized, because it happened so many times, that videos that got MANUALLY reviewed and approved would get demonetized and sometimes even AGE RESTRICTED after a second seemingly random manual review. Sometimes these reviews happen weeks, up to AN ENTIRE YEAR later.

    I remember one time I uploaded a video. It got manually approved for monetization. Then later it got age restricted, I appealed it, it got approved and the video went green again. AND THEN MONTHS LATER, it got ANOTHER demonetization, only that now I can’t appeal it anymore.
    It hurts 😮‍💨

    Incredibly genuine and insightful message. Thanks Sean!

    People need to call out YT for what this is: Censorship hidden behind “ad friendly”

  9. Zach E. says:

    Thank you Sean for:
    – pulling back the curtain (as far as you could) to give us this insight to the YouTube machine and how it works
    – providing constructive feedback for the sake of trying to improve things as a whole
    – caring enough to want to see everything and everyone succeed and thrive

    100% agree, YouTube needs to be transparent with their creators and consistent with their rule enforcement.
