Hey guys. My account has nearly 11,000 subscribers and over 200,000 total views. I have about 50 uploaded videos that are %100 original content. I write and direct sketch comedies. I upload each week on a Monday without fail. My account is fully monetized. Each video I upload immediately has ads placed on them. I have tons of videos with over 10,000 views. I average about 2,000 views a day and about 40 subscriptions a day. My account is in good standing. I have never had any strikes against my account. The problem here is that I was recently denied for partnership. They told me it was because my viewership was too low. Clearly this is not the case. I am wondering what the "real" problem is. One option I have thought of is that maybe they look for a certain ratio between number of subs and number of total views. My ratio is 20:1. Maybe they want something more like 50:1 in which case I would need at least 500,000 total views since I have 10,000 subs. Also, I do have over 56,000 friends on YT thanks to [Tube][Tool][Box]. Would this look suspicious to YT? Some important things you should know: I have used other services such as u2bviews and vagex. These sites have helped me gain views/likes/favorites on a lot of my videos. I have never ever used an actual BOT of any sort. As far as I am concerned, I have never broken the YT TOS. I posted all of this information on the YT help forums and the only responses I got back were some people stating that I should have been approved as well as one person pointing out that it could have been the fact that some of my videos have hundreds of likes yet only a few comments. They claimed that this would look suspicious to YT. My thoughts on this are that if YT felt I had illegitimate views/likes/favorites etc. they would either state so in the rejection letter or simply ban the videos and/or my account. They have done nothing of the sort. I'd like some feedback from you guys telling me what you think really caused the REJECTION (or what collective things caused it) and what you think I can do to FIX the problem for when I reapply in two months.
