    There's a video with 130,000 views I'd like to take down. How many flags/how long until YouTube removes it?
    I've been able to remove things with <1000 views within the hour, with about 20 accounts flagging it. But, I don't know for a 130,000 views video. Does anyone know?

    This is to take down the competition.

    I don´t know, but i think this will take way longer to take it down.

    only admins can take down vids. flagging gets their attention. but flagging by itself doesnt take down a vid.

    I think they'll probably be able to tell if there isn't a legit reason for it to be flagged.

    Your "competition" is probably a member of this forum anyway, your intentions are rotten and nobody should help you even if they could. You would probably make more money if you focus on your own videos and marketing as a pose to trying to ruin someone's income.

    No, I know it isn't. It was a 'hack' video for a video game some time ago (2007 to be exact) and the guy is stealing passwords, and competition for potential leads.
    So, after bumping this from 20+ days, does anyone have an idea?

    I think God has more important things on his mind than punishing people who flag YouTube videos, don't you think?

    well taking down any video by flagging is not easy it might be if they video is rip of some original content or its already violating TOS of youtube but it is not easy to take down any LEGIT video plus why would you want to snatch away any one's earnings regardless of what he is your competitor or not some jerk like you did something quite similar to my 2 best videos what happened i lost my 5$/Day earnings. Well as i am just learning Vb.net i might code something which you people would like to see ill shoot my first program for free to my BHW community :D:D

    Very pleased to see that most of us here abhor flagging. Taking down competition in this manner just manifests your inferior and conventional thinking or old economy thinking on scarcity, whatever you call it. Internet and Youtube specifically, are too big for us to be doing this kind of primitive practices.

    Thanks guys!

    I like flaggers actually....


    I put up SO many videos that when a few get flagged and removed its no big deal.

    The reason why I like them is that they are wasting time "thinking" they are competing with me. Like that one dude said YT is too big and flagging wont do shit.


    Let them waste their time trying to put a dent in my YT promotion. All they do is take time away from themselves that they could spend uploading new vids.

    plus when they flag a video do they really think that they are going to get all the traffic from that vid? HA it will go out to the hundreds of other videos that sprouted up in that time instead. fools.....
