I discovered last night that someone is definitely messing with my YouTube channel.
Yesterday someone comments on my channel about purchasing subscribers, then at 8 pm last night. One hour after a video goes live I have over 4K views on a video.
In early July around the time of a rant about a person ripping off mine and other people’s content I had noticed suddenly a video rising in numbers but rising at such a pace that when I blinked it had increased.
A week later another one. Then suddenly overnight a mad increase in subscribers.
So some may say “what you complaining about”.
Well I’ve had my channel 8 years and I know unusual activity. Yes I’ve got some videos that have gone up to 30k and such ridiculous figures. But that didn’t happen overnight. They took time to reach that.
Last night I made my latest Thelma video public. In one hour it went crazy and over 4K views. Again I hear you say “what’s the problem”.
The problem is I know it’s incorrect . I reported this to Youtube 3 weeks ago when it started and then had no response so went to twitter. They finally responded and said they wanted screen shots of what I see and would look into it.
Again I hear you say “what’s the problem”.
The problem is that someone is bouncing views off my channel and I know they’re not right.
The problem is also YouTube close down channels with bot views.
That is why for me I’m concerned.
I’m concerned that someone feels so strongly that by doing this they can shut it down.
I’ve never encountered such a venomous world such as the YouTube world.
On a daily basis I deal with trolls whose comments I have to delete or block and frankly it’s ridiculous.
I make my videos because I love doing them. I’ve been doing them for a long time.
I love being creative and it’s what makes me tick.
But the behaviours of other people can at times seriously stress me out. I’m a human being after all.
I think it’s an incredibly sad world we live in when people do this sort of thing. I am not in direct competition with anyone else.
What I do is unique to me and so it makes absolutely no sense why yet again I’m dealing with drama in youtube.
But, my one positive is that YouTube are looking at it. So yet again they will no doubt fix it and do what they need to do to the offending person or persons.
But what next?
I’m too tired to keep fighting off a hater.
