ThegnThrand YouTube Channel gets terminated!

Postby Benedict » 22 Oct 2017, 15:06

The YouTube Channel Thegn Thrand conducts test of medieval weapons and armor for educational and entertainment purposes and has recently been unjustly terminated by YouTube with no warning or communication.


Seriously now, this is beyond absurd. I feel like doing something violent.

Ahem.

To Whom It May Concern: Let's help Thrand reinstate the ThegnThrand YouTube Channel.

And a heads up. Scholagladiatora just announced their alternate channel in Vidme in case anything happens in YouTube.

Was only a matter of time until the HEMA community got hit by YouTube's new policy of censorship :evil:

I've already signed the petition.

Grand Heresy technically has a minds channel https://www.minds.com/grandheresy but I've yet to do anything meaningful with it. There isn't much of an RPG scene there yet.

Social media is kind of a hole, from a marketing perspective. If you're big enough that people will look for you and if there are people often enough using that platform, then it can be a useful tool for communicating with your fans on that platform. Unfortunately, we aren't big enough that anyone is going to search a platform for us (I'm 95% certain that every facebook follower we have came from the site or the main page, rather than finding us through Facebook itself ) and minds doesn't seem to have enough people using it to have a role-playing community of any size. I post stuff there from time to time, mirrored from the main page, but the audience interaction there is negligible.

Many other weapon related channels are getting strikes though. Looks like this is will continue to be a trend. :evil:

Well, one of the major appeals of youtube is that it's so mainstream, so, it allows such content to penetrate to mainstream viewers. If only to a small degree, that's still better than nothing.

That's the rub, really. Minds, vidme and all these other places are all hosts of various quality that will work for giving content a place to live. What minds and vidme won't currently do is allow a new audience to find you. The reason that youtube and facebook have such supremacy at the moment is that the mainstream popular culture is hooked into it, which means that you can find new viewers organically. These other platforms will need to come up a couple orders of magnitude in size and following before they'll offer the same kind of opportunity.
