    Robert Kyncl of Youtube: Please Help Save Our Community - YouTube



    As I understand it this storied YT algorithm is based on community strikes derived from user complaints - gain enough complaints and it's tickets for your channel. If this is the case then somebody/some group really has it in for the airgun channels*.

    *There have also been a number of firearm centric channels that shut down in the past day or two.
    ** If you watch Ted's video on YT you will notice some "dislikes". I cannot believe that would be from true airgunners..

    I suspect this was some guffawing attempt at a joke?

    The guy who has been peddling everything from the numerous ‘brand new’ SPA predators he has to Xbox’s and video (ironic?) tripods on the forum classifieds telling the youtubers that do a hell of a lot for airgunning as a whole to get a real job is a bit rich.

    Joking or not, I highly doubt you’d say no to a profitable YouTube channel.

    I find this move by the YouTube SS quite horrifying and sincerely hope it’s going to get sorted. The moves they’re making say a lot of very worrying things about the way the world is going, well beyond airgunning.
    It’s no different from the censorship that the Soviets had, or that which Google itself so vocally (and hypocritically) condemns China for.

    Maybe old Orwell wasn’t so paranoid after all.

    Airgun Girl- TERMINATED
    americanairgunhunter (Jim Chapman) - all videos switched to private.

    It's becoming an apocalypse now...

    Strange how almost all of them of them were/are either sponsors of or heavily promoted on Airgun Nation.

    There is a glimmer of hope, AOA did manage to get their terminated channel back from the dead. For now they have marked all their videos as private until whatever this is blows over. So, somewhere in the bowels of YT there is an appeals process that is not an algorithm.

    Thats really good news, sometimes there is a lot to learn from the overseas chaps concerning airrifles.
    But then again you have to sift through a whole bunch of rubbish to get to the better ones....

    This is becoming apocalyptic! Over the top? Maybe, but this is a serious attack on a worldwide group who have never (to my knowledge) run amok in a High School. I see that there is as yet no problem viewing all things AR-15, Glock, M4 etc.

    Maybe this is good motivation to look for an alternative anyway. Can't have this knee jerk big brother pulling the carpet from under your feet because the world is unstable nonsense.
    And blanket terminating the worlds biggest airgunsport channels because someone jumped off a bridge somewhere and/or some crazy mofo with a centerfire did the unthinkable elsewhere? Really!?
    Youtube has too much power and a free world needs alternatives or it is not free world.
