  • You know nux I completely agree with most of this stuff and I cant exactly confirm with the personal stuff(mental health) cause I'm not a youtuber but what you just said kind of summarizes any job that has any relations to customer service. ie you work at a restaurant/fastfood place you work at the cash register and then you get one complaint saying you were somewhat harassing a customer or not doing your job this in turn gets you a warning and not just a warning this stops you from future growth in said resturaunt like raises or job promotions so you lose and your stock now you may not lose your job or make less money but it does affect you none the less also about favoritism for youtube you would think they shouldn't have that but for youtube it's only because they want more money they dont have personal feelings if you work in a resturaunt your boss has personal feelings and he can decide whether you get a raise or fired wrongly or anything like that but also it's worse because you can see the the favoritism in your face rather than behind a screen looking at the stats of others and if you try to go to your boss's there is still the fact they dont particularly care and also if you fail to make them get punished in some way to the point that they are afraid to do it again then you lose because they will do it more frequently and more severely and you cant do anything and if it gets to the point you think it isnt worth it and try to switch jobs for that interval you dont any money and there is a chance you won't get a job after signing up to a place once and even more so it might just happen again in another place. The sad thing is the bad part with the boss showing favouritism isnt just for costumer service jobs it's for every job. There are definitely more things it's just I dont want to write it all but just wanted to show that there are similar things that happen in almost every job and I know that it's pretty much common knowledge to anyone who has worked or is working but I know some youtubers who have lived there life on youtube and haven't worked before. So yeah jobs in general are definitely filled with some f'ed up things.

  • I got ip banned from R34 due to trying to exposing pedos while E621 just gave me a ten day ban for identity theft and being creepy which i find hillarious since i only used the sites under a Fake identity to rat out the pedos and the bad people, Anyway the message is that i prefer E621 since it is more accepting and more wholesome

  • I find it funny that videos with hate speach at certain groups like for a example hate speach videos aimed at furries don’t get demonetized yet when you make wholesome stuff you can get demonetized for saying things that make sense and is wholesome such as a example to accept others despite physical traits

For someone who is thinking of making a stab at content creation in the future, it's nice to know in advance how the site is going to try and bend me over.

VIworld when your video isn't number 1: "you fucking donkey. what an idiot. here's your grey down arrow. why are you even alive, you stupid dummy?" But seriously, thanks for making this, Nux. The algorithm isn't gonna push this but I will. I'm looking forward to part 2!

  • I really apricate this video, as someone who tried to VIworld stuff back in the day and is looking to a return, knowing what I have to face and deal with going into the future is both apricated and kind of reassuring and terrifying all at the same time. I find the lack of clear cut ways that VIworld works, and the fact that the creators on the site need to basically gamble their careers with tricks and tweaks and gimmicks to appease the great VIworld robot in the cloud is a ridiculous use of time when you could be making more interesting content instead. When all you really want to do is make content on shit your passionate about, not be a cog in the VIworld algorithm. If you do decide to delete your old videos, I hope you put them into an archive channel of some sort to prove this point even further but also to not loose any of your old stuff. I wont lie, I found a new respect for your hustle when I saw a bunch of your older vids and the different thing you have tried in the past, (Boruto abridged for example ;P) but I think the removing video route might be a good direction for you, considering they might be both dead and hurting you. As someone who works with tech IRL it makes way too much sense that those videos are dragging you down in VIworld point system of favoritism but I digress as I don't really know the math, nor how they categorize it. I wish you the best in your future choices on progressing forward, I find your transformative direction of you channel inspiring. as someone slowing preparing to come back into the creator corner, despite seeing this video and knowing how much a struggle this will be, you gave me hope that I can do it and get through it.

  • I wonder how reporting people plays into how channels are promoted. Like if someone were to report a video for having little people getting reamed (trying to avoid more obvious terms) and youtube deems that the video isn't like that even despite it clearly being like that, does your channel get penalized for the "false" report? On the other hand; Most people reporting things they just don't like probably don't actually create anything so they have no penalty, but it probably plays into the video creator's capability to be promoted because they're probably flagged as problematic even if they are reviewed and found innocent of any wrong doing.

  • Took me a while to get to this, had a tab open all week just waiting for a day I had an hour to. And that as a viewer is one of my biggest struggles. So many creators are being incentivised to make longer videos to get more watch time, but I can't always sit down and watch a 30+ minute video. If it's dumb mindless content, I can press play and leave it in the background, but good, thought through, well done content that actually requires my attention? Oh, I can't click that right now. I hope I remember to come back to it before it's lost in my sub feed. But then that creator's channel suffers because of it. But they need to do it because otherwise they can't get promoted in the algorithm. Very cool on the shout out to Bonsai Pop. The suppression on VIworld is definitely real. They've been trying to get around it by having a tight knit community that is aggressively supportive, but even so, I've never seen their videos actually promoted and they barely pull in views outside of subscribers. And what does get promoted is so terrible. Most of the time, it's either videos that I've already seen before or videos from the same channels over and over I may not even be subbed to just because I've seen a video or two from them in the last week.

  • That just how thing work, there are a saying "work smart, not work hard". You work for VIworld, youtube are your boss, you fall into that trap the moment you rely on youtube for a living. The fear of losing your job is not for youtube only, but for the entertainment industry in general, You can rise up and fall down in a blink of an eye. The faster you rise the harder you fall. When there are interest there are conflict, VIworld has taken the entertainment industry by storm, there are bound to be conflict between them, You need to know about corruption and connection, some of the big wave that happen in youtube might be a warning from other maybe. It just how politic work. And since you are part of youtube, you will be affected by it as well. However, in a lizard there are head to tail, if you are a tail, you can be cut off pretty easily and be regrow, The golden boy you mention are the body which cannot be cut. anyway, don't want to say more since this is already a lot. Still wonder why the word youtube are incorrect even with cap on?

  • You and VIworldrs aren’t alone Nux. I work in a factory working a core machine. We’re given a number of cores to hit per hour. And it’s usually impossible. 128 cores per hour? When the best I can muster is 40. Then other people hit 60 or 90 cores. And I stand there asking myself what am I doing wrong? Am I taking too long to defin? Should I take my time getting it right, or blast through them and hit rate? And it’s just as unfair at times. Day shift gets help defining and sometimes they don’t even bother processing cores. Then I get told off about minor defects like the cores being slightly overcooked or the box being shifted a few millimeters off. (At least they tell us the standards we have to adhere to.) But then it’s inconsistently enforced. And all the while I have to ask myself if I’m not going to be ambiguously fired in favor of someone more willing to hit rate. But despite all that, I’m proud of what I do. When I see that “Made in the USA” stamp on a John Deere or Borg Waraner turbo, there’s an incredible feeling of gratification. “I helped make that”. Don’t let anyone or anything destroy the pride in your work. Good luck, and keep on truckin’ , Nux. More like “Keep on truck-kun”... I’ll see myself out.

  • Nux, this video, while intended, is very "unenlightened". You are overgeneralizing VIworldrs, the ones who do nothing but clickbait $#itposts over and over, then complain that "the algorithm" isn't doing enough for them. The reason subscribers "burn out" as the channel creators do, is because their channel themselves were a lie to begin with. If you want to break free of "the algorithm", to be "transcendent" and obtain "VIworld Enlightenment", you have to absolutely stop being dependent on AD revenue in the first place and see it but a minor secondary source. Memberships, Superchats, sponsorships, external sources, merchandise, ect. See Hololive. Vtubers (Japanese). They all make ridiculous amount of money with little effort, even a small 10k sub channel, because they aren't entirely reliant on an AD model promoting their videos. Their subs watch their stuff anyways, no matter how good/bad. *Indeed, as it is channel loyalty what actually matters... not views, not subscribers. That's how you beat the algorithm, it is so.* If all you do is chase ad revenue, that's all you'll ever be. All you ever get are short-circuited viewers viewing clickbait, all the ready to dump you for the next new thing. So stop $#1Tposting, and make some _real_ content, for once. No matter.

  • Well, I am but a single voice in a sea of other voices, and you likely won't even get to see my message, but I'll post anyways. I liked the video, so I liked the video. All of this did indeed, need to be said. While I did watch the entire video, I had to pause on occasion to stop and contemplate what it is you said. Your content is thought provoking. I enjoy your content because I can see that you have a decently high I.Q. I see that in the fact that you can do "satire", which can only be done well by someone with a substantially high I.Q. You obviously did your research, and put a lot of time, effort, passion and soul into these videos. Well done. I wouldn't want to watch anything less than what you do. (although admittedly I don't click on every video since I have this thing called a life and youtube fails to understand this sort of thing, which is ironic considering the fact that youtube is set up just to suck the life out of you)
