Update on Youtube?
« on: September 11, 2017, 11:32:49 PM »
This post is mostly directed towards Fritz, just wondering if there is any update on getting your YouTube channel reinstated. I've been itching for some Fritz ramblings! It's what I listen to in the shower lol. Hope all is well.

Beyond everything and anything that has happened with my YouTube channel the support so many of you have shared with me has turned a crazy experience into an amazing experience.

For years I shared my ideas, battle reports, and 40K experiments, and with the nature of YouTube being somewhat one way I never really knew how many people I reached or how many of you in a small way I was part of your daily or weekly gaming routine. The 40K community despite all of our crankiness is an amazing place.

Thank you for the kindness and support!

YouTube...

My account is closed for violating TOS- what I knew before it still the same. It is closed, nobody to talk with or appeal, and I'm not getting it back. I'm actually banned from creating a YouTube account. It and my G+ account are gone. I don't know why or what I did, and in a strange way this is probably for the best. There is nothing to focus my upset on or get angry about.

So what are my next steps?

I have most of my vids saved- about 90% of what I posted. At this point even if I could start a new channel, the loss of all my subscribers, links from other sites to my videos, and my YouTube search rankings and weight are all gone- 10 years of cultivating that. I'm not adverse to starting from scratch, but over the weekend I have really been asking myself if I AM going to start over from day one, is my effort best poured back into YouTube or a similar medium?

There were many ideas that I had while running my channel that I could not do either because my time was spent populating my channel, or just the day to day running it.

Some of my ideas?

I've thought about going back to blogging- maybe even Way of Saim-Hann or a 40K only tactics blog- a magazine format, where I post once a week, but it reads like a VERY detailed magazine article with diagrams, pictures, and tactica points.

Also have had thoughts about going into pod casting- I have the time to do it now...

Not related to 40K, but there are things I have wanted to do with D&D and Battletech that now I can build from the ground up.

I'm thinking about this as if one has had their prize 40K army stolen- you are going to be REAL pissed, perhaps for a long time, but do you quit 40K? You pick a new army, make it better vs. the old one and get back in the game!
Though my men may sleep, and my ships rest at anchor, my foes know full well that big guns never tire...

Look on my works ye mighty, and despair...

Glad to hear they won't keep you down Fritz. BTW, there ARE other video hosting services; if you wanted to create an online archive of your videos.

As for the Podcast idea, I personally would love that as I would often watch your videos while painting minis.

Hey Fritz!

I'm sorry about what happened! I certainly hope you go into podcasting. How else are we supposed to get our 40k fix :P Maybe we get lucky and your account gets back up.

P.S. I made an account just to be able to post here!

Aint got time to read son, and as a writer I can tell you a magazine once a month is what you will be aiming for. Unless you can "speech to text" your best podcasts of the month into a magazine effortlessly I would not bother with that route at all.

Your power is all in your VOICE and knowledge, I am all in favour of a podcast format.

Fritz, I love your vlogs. You don't have to let your channel go! I contacted several YouTubers through reddit and certainly one of them has contacted you through Twitter, check your massages..

I thought you always said when you're losing you don't call it. You battle it out to the bitter end. Please don't give up.

Yes, I made an account here on your form just to tell you not to give up and that you can fight it. Please don't give up =(

I also think that the podcast idea is right up your alley. Listening to you while I was painting or converting or doing other stuff was always nice and you did have some interesting ideas, thoughts, questions, answers all that good stuff. Not only in 40K but other games too. And trust me, writing a wall of text is not as easy or fun to do if you want to get your thoughts out there.

But I'm really happy to see that you're not giving up all together and though I wish to see your channel return to YouTubes ranks, I am also ready to support you in whatever it is that you plan to do in the future. Keep us posted and best of luck to you.
