    Hi there,
    Thanks to this forum and the age of my youtube channel (11 years) I have finally started generating revenue from youtube on purpose. That's to say I have made money in the past but from fluke 'viral' videos that I just posted on a whim. My MCN went defunct or something about 2 days ago, I don't know what happened but my channel was unlinked abruptly with no warning. Which is weird because I have ~500,000 minutes watched in the past couple of days. Basically, the channel is growing at a ridiculous rate, for me at least. They're impossible to contact and unreliable. All the estimated revenue I had is now gone and it just says $0.00. All my other analytics have continued to update multiple times during this time period. Should I be worried? I'm getting so much traffic. My method SEEMS to be relatively solid, exponential growth etc. Am I just getting views with no value now? My adsense account and youtube channel are in good standing. Any advice helps. Thanks.
    -Edward

    That's not highly unusual although you did get screwed in the process. If ScaleLab is not partnered with them anymore then naturally TPN probably lost their ability since they were probably a sub-network to help you guys monetize your videos. Still no excuse on ScaleLab's end for not letting you guys know about this in advance.

    One of the things I hate the most is when MCNs delink your channel and leave you out in the cold like give people a warning first so they can start looking for other options in advance. Sometimes the danger with this also is if you guys get your payment from them, let us know if you're still able to get paid for February and March's earnings.

    ScaleLab also should've just attached you guys that were with TPN with another one of their sub-networks instead of just dropping you guys altogether like that.

    I hope this doesn't happen to me because I'm with a sub-network with ScaleLab and earning a lot with them as well.

    The only advice I can give you buddy is to ask ScaleLab support more questions and try to find another MCN to link up with immediately don't wait more than a week to do this especially since your earnings are hot right now. Thanks for letting us know about this too, stuff like this effects all of us.
