I should say something about this days ago since Absolute Intense Wrestling posted on Instagram and I am going to say it, so if you are a fan of the indy scene or the three companies, WWE, TNA, and ROH, please read this and share it or if you are watching this on my YouTube channel, please share the video.
I, Lindsie Starr, as a fan of every pro wrestling and a YouTuber, I had know about restriction mode for a few weeks that has been addressed by a fellow YouTuber, Philip DeFranco, who has a lot more subscribers than I do, but, I am not going to hate the man. He state about the situation of restriction mode:
If you are confused about this, Phil has talk about the restriction mode that it is happening to a lot of people like him and others, even though he was pointing out that the whole entire LGBTQ+ community of vloggers like Gigi Gorgeous (transgender/lesbian who does makeup and beauty), Tyler Oakley (gay who does video of any topic of his choice), and others.
However, I don't think any wrestling promoter should be worried as long as their fans are not on restricted mode.
Also, I want to point out that on PWPonderings, a column was on the subject of YouTube restriction mode and the ad ban, which took place last month, due to what it had to do with YouTube not terminating channels that have to deal with terrorism and anything that was not friendly to them, however, this is actually really started back in January, when Wall Street Journal went on a binge of attacks on the most popular YouTuber, PewDiePie, who has well over 54 million subscribers as of me typing this out, stating that he was an anti-Semite, and claims that nine videos he done prove that he is, but, taken the videos out of content, which it is wrong. The videos that they were stating were about how he was frustrated with YouTube. In February, everything fell apart for him, when Wall Street Journal kept attacking him by going to his network, Maker Studios, and push them back to a wall forcing Maker Studios to drop him, despite Maker Studios were going to be dropping a lot of their YouTube creators. I don't know if this prompt ad companies to ban YouTube, but, they are people suggesting it is, even though, there are those who are not friendly.
However, I know YouTube has made changes to their standers of ads that you need well over 10,000 views lifetime and you can check that on the Analytics in the Creators Studio, like I do, due to my video on a subject, I will talk within the next few days. Yes, it's about wrestling.
To wrap up this blog/vlog, I will ask for you to understand that if you are a wrestling promoter out there, who has a YouTube channel, you do not need to worry. As long as you have loyal fans who has a YouTube account and does not have restricted mode and also has more then 10,000 lifetime views to get your videos monetize, you should be fine. Otherwise, there are other platforms out there.
