Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
I can understand wanting to reign in the toy review community. So much of it is PR opening and I'm not sure who I can really trust (I do trust GreatBigToyBox but she seems to be the exception). There's a difference between CookieSwirlC and GreatBigToyBox, too. If this dominos into causing blind boxes to stop being so prevalent I'll consider it to be one good thing coming out of it.

Well I'm glad they are doing SOMETHING.  Probably they will need to make modifications as time goes by.

I'm less worried about data collection than I am worried about a kid watching what looks like Peppa Pig and having it switch into something horrible halfway in that gives the kid PTSD.  Why would people do such terrible things to small children? That I cannot understand.

tailrustedtealeaf - I absolutely agree that social media was a mistake x) Especially the awful trend of just putting EVERYTHING online, often under your real name! I swear, some of the stuff I've seen people plaster all over their Tumblrs, it's shocking/terrifying.

Moving back onto YouTube though (because otherwise I'll rant for ages :P), I wonder if it would be feasible for them to do something like...

Any time a video is uploaded, you have to select whether or not it's aimed towards kids, yes or no
if you click "no" - video goes up as normal
if you click "yes" - video is held and reviewed to see whether or not it's appropriate

I definitely agree that they need the "human touch" here instead of relying on machines.

Because there are extremely sick people out there (as any “comments” section can attest to). :( My personal opinion is that Youtube needs to rely less on algorithms and more on actual, human moderators who have the power to delete videos and ban accounts that post offensive content. ALL social media and content sharing websites need more of that IMO.

Agree 1000%. Social media is one of humankind’s most horrifying creations. :P

Ok call me naive but I don't believe youtube will just move all doll customizers. They want to keep people who bring in ad revenue, they are a soul sucking mega corp, come on.
People need to let youtube know what's up instead of creating panic in their fanbase. While I feel bad for the toy channels I also chuckle at some of these people complaining that "we will have to get fulltjme jobs now" - oh rly? I thought youtube IS a fulltime job? :cool:
Anyways, I just believe this dish isn't gonna get served scalding hot. It needs to cool down, youtube needs to do something aboug the freaks making these cut videos and change their algorithm (I don't have a yt account and have no clue how much data they gain from me but I find it disturbing when I watch a Breyer review with cleared browser history and the recommended videos show an angry nerd complaining about Captain Marvel, some chick binge-eating and some sponsored video of some of these yt famous dolts) :lookround:

Agreed and might I just add that I am greatful for namedropping GBTB? I started watching her slime review videos and it's a delight how honest she is and how she openly tells people not to buy certain things. It's intresting how she still gets sponsored sometimes. These companies must be sure of their product if they give it to someone who might say "this is a waste of money" :lol:

Someone did a petition about this, I can’t find the link for said petition. Looks like I’ll have to link the video.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

So I was watching a crafting Youtuber talk about what her contact at Youtube had communicated to her.  (I think Youtube offers Youtubers a "liaison" if they hit certain follower goals . . . Could be wrong but that's my impression.)  And the person working at Youtube said that one of the thing "machine learning" would look for, that could get a video flagged, was . . . toys in the background. 

Like even if someone is discussing Shakespeare, if they have a collection of Pikachu plushes on their bedroom shelf, bam, demonetized.

I don't get why Youtube doesn't hire more real human beings, they are owned by Google so they could certainly afford it.

Also "game walkthroughs" will be demonetized, which is just . . . ???  I associate games with teens to 30-somethings more than kids.

I agree that any kid saying that they're "10" should be marked as a child and prevented from commenting in the future.  Or maybe just by their own viewing patterns, get marked as a child and prevented from commenting.

And kids under 13 can have google accounts as their schools might be using something like "google classroom."  As soon that kid also opens youtube, they should know that they are potentially dealing with a child.


I think the real problem is, kids are going to be watching no matter what the content is as long as it's entertaining.  It's not like there is an actual boundary between what kids like and what adults like.  As a kid, I watched a lot of MASH, violent Cowboy Movies and so on.  Because it was on.

ugh, that's awful, LadyM! I mean what the heck, how's it going to recognize what is/isn't a toy? Are people going to get flagged as "kids content" for having... I dunno, sexy anime figures or something? @_@;

See, this is a great point, and it's one that goes both ways. Kids can like "adult" stuff and adults can like "kid" stuff. This whole thing is just a mess...
