    17th January 2018 : Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, Steve Mack, is no longer eligible for monetisation because it does not meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetisation tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on 20 February 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.

    Interesting article; "YouTube Wants Content Creators To Appeal Demonetization, But It's Not Always That Easy";

    One of the big, controversial stories over the past few months has been the demonetization of content on YouTube. The 'Adpocalypse' has hit YouTubers who deal with controversial subject matter, video games, gun reviewers and historians, as nervous advertisers pause their ad campaigns while YouTube scrambles for a solution.

    For some content creators, the past few months have been such a rough stretch that they've turned to Patreon, Still others remain mysteriously unscathed.

    Age Of Adpocalypse

    The 'Adpocalypse' began over two separate incidents. The first was when it came to light that terrorist groups like Hezbollah were using YouTube to upload and monetize videos promoting terrorism.

    The revelations combined spooked advertisers, and the resulting downturn in revenue for many content creators has been brutal. I've spoken with YouTube, and while they say that advertisers are returning, they also emphasized how important it is that content creators appeal demonetization.

    Machine Learning

    A new yellow demonetization icon has been added to the video manager that allows creators to see when one of their videos has been flagged. This indicates that the video is in something of a purgatory, and an appeal may result in that video being monetized once more.

    Since YouTube uses machines to determine which videos are flagged for demonetization, and the only way for those machines to 'learn' and improve their filtering capabilities is for YouTubers to appeal.
    "The problem is they have an unholy amount of video uploaded to their service every minute," Bain tells me. "They don't have enough people to monitor all of it, and they have no interest in monitoring all of it. But it's gotten to the point where advertisers are not okay with that anymore, so the solution is, "Let's get a machine to do it." The problem is they can only really use that in the live environment. They can't do it in any kind of test environment. It's got to go live, and that means it's going to affect real people.

    "Right now, the problem is that the machine isn't operating in a logical way. It's demonetizing videos that don't seem to have any logical reason behind the demonetization, and their communication with partners is next to zero. We don't know what they want us to do, and if they want us to fix things, they can't expect us to just guess what exactly those things are."

    One problem with the current system, Bain says, is that if a video is demonetized and isn't monetized again very quickly, content creators could lose out on the most important time in the video's life-cycle when "by the time the appeal goes through, the lion's share of the views that that video is ever going to get have probably been and gone, so you've lost out on the majority of your income from that video."

    But older videos can pose a unique problem as well, Bain notes, since content creators may not even notice that they've been demonetized in order to star the appeals process.
