PLEASE EXPAND AND READ THIS! I have been doing my giveaways for many months now. It was brought to my attention that Giveaways are not allowed on YouTube. I did some checking around and in order to do giveaways, there has to be a whole list of rules that have to take place.


To be honest with you, it just makes it too complicated. I didn't require anybody to like or favorite videos. I didn't require a video to reach a certain amount of views. I just announced an upcoming video and your comment on that video would be your entry. It seems simple enough to me but that's the way it goes.

I know that there are lots of other YouTubers doing contests and giveaways. I'm not taking any chances on my account getting into trouble just because I want to give stuff away.

Another link:
Has this information:
4. Your contest may only accept entries from users aged 18 and up, or, the age of majority in the jurisdiction(s) where your contest is offered or promoted if it is over 18.

So the bottom line is that I officially don't have contests or giveaways anymore. Now if I decide to sent viewers stuff, that is on my own prerogative. But unless you comment on my videos, comment on my Facebook page, or post links to my videos on Twitter, I don't have any idea who you are for me randomly decide to send something.

On that note, please don't message me or post on my videos that you want me to send you a free car. It creates an uncomfortable environment. Just enjoy the videos!
