So youtube decided to take whatever little money you were making and just close the door on you completely. I'm pretty disappointed in Youtube but I can't say I'm surprised. I was pulling in about $17-$30 a month and even though that's not a lot of money, that's still gas in the car, light grocery shopping.
Do you realize how much money Youtube will be making off this? All balances will revert back to Google.
I’ve been a Partner for over ten years with no strikes. And because I didn’t get 4,000 watch hours last year, you’re terminating my Partnership?! F. U. Youtube. You’ve turned a Vlogger friendly site into a teen model site.
"Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, (You), are no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 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."
