WHAT THE @&*£!

Is Forrestfire the Youtube Editors Son? Why is he getting away with using more copyrighted material than....I dont know......when Captain Bulldog gets both of his Johnny Cash movies pulled because he used the song!

This ultimately proves that life is not fair.

EDIT: Why do I take so long to write posts?
It would be interesting to see how long it takes before my THAC 6 movie gets pulled. Dont worry, if it does, I'll just edit the music, and re-upload it.

Re: YouTube

Yeah, YouTube is less than consistent regarding partnerships.  They have rejected me twice now, the second time I had over 500 subscribers.  I don't think Spudster is anywhere near a point where he might get accepted, but then I am surprised that daragh was accepted.  Copyrighted content is allowed in some cases, even for videos with adverts, as shown by Darthmilo and Forrestfire's accounts, which are solely Star Wars / Batman / Indiana Jones videos, but not in others.  I have a few Star Wars videos but most of my stuff is original, and I'm still not getting accepted for a partnership.

Re: YouTube

I don't know about that Smeagol, I would say most of your content was unoriginal.

Re: YouTube

Is there any way to get something signed to make YouTube a better, more fair place? Like sign a petition or something? Because this is just insanely stupid, Smeagol is about a million times better than Forrestfire or Darthmilo and he is getting rejected. Something must be done!

mini/bigsmile Well done! I think you get paid for the ads you put on your films. Or the views, I forget. But that's cool.

EDIT: By the way Spud, if I were you I'd wait until you have at least 300-400 subs. I don't think 100 is enough.

You get paid for both.

Also, ForrestFire101 posted an extremely racsist, anti-muslim cartoon about Barack Obama back in October. He removed it after a couple of weeks, but I still think he should've had his Partner privilages revoked. The system is totally insane.

People look for "Lego Movies" not "Brickfilms." They only find films by Forrestfire101, and, they don't know any better, they think that he's the only one out there. They don't notice that smeagol even exists.......... You might also notice that Forrestfire101 deletes any negative comments on his channel. People see a film made by him and go "He's good, ha invented a thing called stop-action lulz!1!!." They see smeagol, or pegonimation and go "He stole Forrestife101's idea! He sucks!1111!1!!!111!" The masses don't know what quality is. They think that for some reason it's better when it looks like "I........Made......A.....Poop....." as far as framerate, or they like "Imadepoop." But they never like "This is a very good story, with more than satisfactory animation, and effects."
You see, it's all about how much you shut off the outside world. Make it look like you invented stop motion, and it don't matter how good it is. Tell the truth, they hate it, because it makes your films look less special. ForrestFire101 is popular for the same reasons as windows, he made it look like he was the only one out there. It worked.

Let's not turn this into a "Complain about forrestfire" thread.

Re: YouTube

Maybe we should ask Forrestfire if he could promote BIM a bit for us.

No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of youtube users. It all depends whether your goal is to milk the system for cash or make some good films.

Re: YouTube

If I were Forrestfire, I wouldn't promote this place.

Re: YouTube

You can't become a partner if you live in Sweden, can you?

My old YouTube is since long ago defunct - now even removed.
Here is my new one.

Re: YouTube

Nope, the countries are limited to USA, Canada, France, Ireland, the UK, Germany and Brazil. Sorry.

I'm surprised they allow it to Ireland (which I;m happy about obviously). Usually Americans stereotype us and think we're farmers that drink a lot.

Re: YouTube

I swear, I've mentioned the fact that Partners are free to upload copyrighted content without the chance to make money from them at least 4 separate times. Most of forrestfire's and darthmilo's videos actually haven't been submitted for revenue sharing if any of you would care to notice.

Anyways, congrats to you, Daragh.

Damn it! I hope they will fix it so that I can apply (not that I can do it now, but in the future). I want to make monniez!

My Irish stereotype is a leprechaun.

I renewed my partnership application earlier today. I will let you know how it turns out.

Dear Zoot101,

Thank you for your interest in the YouTube Partner Programme. Our goal is to extend invitations to as many partners as we can. Unfortunately we are unable to accept your application at this time. The current level of viewership of your account has not met our threshold for acceptance.

Poop.
