    Hi everyone,

    I'm a two days old newcomer to the youtube game, and just trying to figure out how this thing works.
    Spent a day with analyzing network traffic and trying various methods to artifically increase those views.

    Got some videos disabled, stuck at 300, ips blacklisted, etc, basically the usual hurdles people are facing.

    Although one of my test videos is now frozen at 3473 views for about 16 hours. I looked around the forum but couldn't find information about the existence of a 'milestone' around this view count.

    Could someone please share if there is a known limit at this point? All views are fake, and not done via rtsp.

    Thanks for any feedback on whether this is a known limit or not.

    I think either:

    ->The views haven't yet registered on YT, they can take a while.

    ->The method used in said case isn't that great, and YT has realised there is a discrepancy on the views and so is stopping them being counted until they balance out to what they think (YT) what they really should be.

    Sometimes the counter stops to check if all the views are real
