So my friend just asked youtube support if he could get verified, and he got accepted with 10,000 subs. Then I contacted them and asked the same question since my gaming channel has 50,000 subscribers and 2000 Google+ followers. I got denied. Any tips for getting verified? It will probably take a year for me to hit 100,000 subs and I dont want to wait that long. I think they accepted my friend because he uses his irl name as his channel name.
