Polygon (apologies for lack of a better source, they did cite what they said) recently covered Surny's termination as well as channels like Linus Tech Tips getting slapped with a ban from Youtube. Apparently Youtube responded to Linus about it on Twitter, but it feels like it's kind of counter-intuitive:

YoutubeYou can absolutely create videos that promote or link to Twitch! And there's no new enforcement. As stated in our Community Guidelines, if the content's main/sole purpose is to drive people off YouTube and onto another site, it will likely violate our spam policies.

It's been worse in the animation end. Hypo, an animator who works on TF2 taunts and various SFM videos, had three channels banned for God knows whatever automation reason, even though it was reviewed before the third account attempt and a staff member had told him, "yeah you're good to make a new account". Elizabeth (formerly Callegos), another animator who did animations in SFM and Blender, also apparently got pulled from monetization and their agency for a bit, because they thought Liz ripped cutscenes from video games.

I'm expecting to get my monetization pulled within this year, I haven't been able to be consistent in uploading because good videos/animation takes time and decent wrist health (which I no longer have) and it's so easy to get videos demonetized or claimed. Content creation on Youtube has been really rough and it's not going to get better.

EDIT: Youtube took down Doomsday's callout video on Inspector Heavy / Heavy the Squid??? Inspector Heavy is a grown ass man who preyed on a minor and has since tried to constantly manipulate his fanbase into harassing her because she spoke up and raised awareness about it. Fuck off with that shit, demonetizing and banning channels who just want to make some pocket change or content but then deleting videos that call out scumbags aight sure

Blender itself had almost all of their content blocked for a period of time because they refused to let Youtube monetize their videos: https://www.blender.org/media-exposure/youtube-blocks-blender-videos-worldwide/

Expect more of this

haha nothing like a bit of ignoring the context and disregard that your content creator's trying to survive demonetisation

That is not me, you must be thinking of ShortWhat.

On topic: variety of TF2 stuff. Video essays and commentaries, live comms related to wacky maps, gamemodes and mods, stream highlights and sometimes stuff you could deem as going way out of the line of ordinary TF2.

Doesn't more than half of the shit on youtube feature other applications and websites? How do they expect this to work?
