Okay but?? I know the tubes isn't about the money
But why did they make it to where you need 10k views on a vid to start earning money???
I feel really bad for the new youtubers starting up a channel ;o; I was literally checking it out bc I wanna start a gaming or reaction channel or something to help me get out of my shell, and tbh I wanna be able to make some money?? Soon I'll be out in the adult world and I live in South Carolina. In a reallllly small, but somehow over-crowded town in South Carolina. So basically the only places that are really hiring are extremely low-paying jobs. Which okay, anything would be a good start.
Sure it'll stop fake channels or people uploading a million vids in one day just for a little bit of profit, but it's affecting the creators?? Like, hello?? they make your whole site YouTube?? This is their career and literally making the goal to 10k views is ridiculous when I see one youtuber who gets an average of around 100k views a vid, so they maybe make an average of $100-200 per vid now? idk. And he doesn't only support himself, but he supports his family as well. You're begging for competition at this point.
Literally discouraging people who may want to start up a youtube channel, if it comes to a point where they're actually getting 10k views a vid they'll start thinking of taking it up as a career
but with this weird 10k views rule?? idk if that many people are gonna want to do youtube, since they'll have to keep up a real job to even come close to covering living expenses?? And youtube can become time-consuming especially if you plan to record, edit, and upload DAILY while dealing with a full-time or part-time job on the side.
Sorry I'm late to the boat but it's annoying
