    Ok, I don't post here often but I have been very successful in making money on youtube but recently to many idiots flagging shit right and left on youtube now. Im sure there is people on BHW that are doing exactly what im talking about, pls stop this shit, you're not just hurting others but yourselves also by doing this, people will flag your ass also. Myself, I never flagged yet but if this continues, fuck that I will get a flag bot and go crazy just like so many.

    SO STOP THAT FLAGGING SHIT!

    Yes, I've noticed a lot more flagging as of lately it's very very irritating it's not only competition flagging but also the people watching so it's hitting twice as hard. Keeping videos / accounts up means you definitely have to play the numbers game and step it up with ranking lots of videos :(

    For all the new comers stepping into the YT game....Welcome to the battlefield fellas

    I really don't think it's people on here that has changed....YouTube has improved. In my personal opinion it only takes 2/3 flags for a NEW video to be scanned by a YouTube bot - then if it finds spammy titles, links & tags the video will be removed and the account will probably be banned.

    The people flagging your videos are mostly likely the people who are falling for your trap...not your competition.

    I understand how you feel but have you sat down to looks at the magnitude of baseless accusation you are making.

    What if the guys aint from here, the first thing i want you to do is check out how professional your videos are compared to your competitor.

    I know you know quite a number of the rule but have you take the time to read the rules very well.

    Basically, videos only get flag down for spam or in-appropriation.

    People will not stop because they will always do what they want. If they want to, they will flag your videos and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Quit whining. It's all part of the game.

    You don't....by the time you find out it's too late as your video has been removed. Although I never know if this is always a result of "the community" flagging your videos or YouTube scanning them and just removing them anyway - from having spammy keywords or views.

    I think flagging is just as legitimate as spamming. If people should not flag in order to level the playing field, what do you suggest? More videos/spam?

    I have yet to do this but it has me wondering just one thing... how do you know it wasnt people who didnt like your video? was your video way spammy? did you not unlock content yet tell people you would? Personally I have not yet flagged any videos, the most I have done was down rate spam the shit out of some jerk who stole my personal video. All im saying is before you go on a rant, make sure its not from regular people who are tired of getting tricked on youtube....

    I have a popular gaming channel and I get a lot hate from regular Youtube users. Youtube is a cesspool of haters. Youtube is full of little kids that are bored and do stupid shit.

    ok so then its coming from random kids and people that just hate. Still dont see how blackhatworld plays a part in that however, I do think any site that has a flag and or spam button need to do a little more research before just removing content. I have had things removed from FB in the past that was perfectly fine and legit, but a few angry old woman were mad I was making money and flagged my post as spam. Personally if I were you I would just make a new channel and copy over most of your videos and give it a new name. Then just try running two channels with pretty much the same shit, see what channel gets messed with or what videos go missing. It might help you figure out if its more random or channel / brand specific.

    Tag Stealer? They wouldn't be mad for NOTHING unless you show up on Tobuscus or Pewdiepie and start spewing your low quality videos all over the place. Even Toby and Pewds get flagged daily for no fucking reason (other than people simply realizing their content is trash XD).

    No, no. You missed understood me. I wasn't referring to BHW. I was agreeing with you, that a lot of the flagging that goes on, is probably mostly average Youtube users. Some are probably just kids that have nothing better to do than flag for kicks.

    My channel is fine, it is a hobby channel.

    Flagging is part of the game....also the public is becoming a little bit more aware when it comes to spam videos. You just gotta learn to adapt or look for another avenue. Also, I wouldn't have just come on to BHW and posting a thread like this isn't a great way to make friends. ;). Best of luck.

    Your Post is useless. if someone thinks he should flag competitors videos, then he would probably continue doing that no matter how many post you will send. The real thing you have to understand is "youtube technology has changed" This is'nt 2009 or 2010 when you can upload couple of adults videos/ Game cheats AND GET 10K A DAY. This is another game today and you have to think: is it worth my time promoting videos that get banned after one or two days? Or should i get other traffic sources? or maybe i should change my niche?
