    I was just checking stats as I normally do via SocialBlade and I noticed a lot of people were losing millions of views today. I pulled up this page: http://socialblade.com/youtube/top/bottom5001d and saw billions of views removed from YouTube similar to what happened back in mid-February although this seems even more extreme. I'm excited to see what news comes out regarding this. Here is a screenshot:

    It's crazy, UniversalMusicGroup lost 99.9% of their views, FailBlog lost over 90% of their views and even NigaHiga lost 7.5% of his views.

    I'm 99% sure this was them deleting all the mobile views, since I sent them the method and what needed to be patched, they probably tracked all the views and deleted them all.

    Isn't SocialBlade always behind and plays catch up with YT stats?
    Private Videos and Deleted Videos are no longer counted towards your Total Video Views.

    Perhaps SocialBlade is just catching up with December's Doomsday and January's Overcounting Issue from Mobile Devices (January 11th - 15th).

    overall it vidos 1) that were hidden because YouTube warned earlier that now views on private vidos not be taken into account in the overall count + they sminusovali these views if you have had before. 2) recently reported that the February blunted YouTube views with the statistics ... here and here is cut .. so do not panic

    Just out of interest, did YouTube actually reply to you when you sent them this method?

    YT is a big website that's worth a billion of dollars.
    I don't think we can just "hey yt plz patch this", and just a few click/type = done.

    Looks like YT just give up already.

    That is why on a videos suggestions none views are shown. Similar with NEW YouTube channel interface.
    Just sub's no total views.

    Yeah that's why I asked.....I was confused about why Dagreyon would send this in. Plus if he actually did, then would they even see it or act on it....I highly doubt it.

    If by anychance Dagreyon sent them the script, and if they worked upon it. I would rather say that Dagreyon did a very right thing. You can't really tolerate people reselling 50k views for $5 -_-.

    Good job Dagreyon
