    1. Some questions about collaborative work being published to YouTube

      I'm a facilitator of a project that, ultimately, publishes its work to YouTube. As the facilitator I am the one and only administrator of the YouTube channel. If, for instance, I became incapacitated for a long period of time (such as my untimely death) how would I pass the mantle onto someone else to handle the channel?

      Can I entrust administrative privileges, of said channel, to others as a precaution?

    2. New YouTube terms will allow Google to terminate accounts that it determines are not "commercially viable"

      Relevant part of YouTube TOS that'll come into effect on 2019-12-10: YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its...

      Relevant part of YouTube TOS that'll come into effect on 2019-12-10:

      YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable.

      However, it's not clear whether "Service" is YouTube or whole Google account. As we've seen in Markiplier affair, violating YouTube TOS meant that people lost access to their whole Google account - including gmail and gdrive.

    3. YouTube without all the crap?

      I'm a pretty regular YouTube watcher but if I accidentally glance down at the comments section, I know my night is going to be ruined.

      I wondered if there is any kind of YouTube app or service that lets you watch and search for videos (even access my subscribed channels) but with less of the crap, ie. the comments and related videos, which just take you down a YouTube rabbit hole that you won't get out of for hours.

      Cheers!

    4. How would you guys feel if Youtube followed Instagram and made views/likes/etc. private?

      Curious how you guys feel about this as users, uploaders etc? Its an interesting question because this was generally viewed as a good move by instagram, would it be the same with Youtube. Also,...

      Also, from what I understand a lot of drama on Youtube has been elevated because of public seeing the subs go up/down, maybe this would change how we analyse drama. I dont say this in the sense of someone who enjoys drama, but some of these things reflect social trends/situations.

      Edit: I just want to add for clarification; Instagram is currently beta testing a feature where only you the poster can view how many likes and comments you get, the public cannot. The Youtube version would be hiding views/likes/subs from the audience, but not the content creator.
