News: Youtube demonitising gaming videos is effectively killing them

Youtube’s new “family friendly” algorithm is effectively killing your favorite channels.  A thumbnail, text or even image in the video of a gun or “gratuitous violence” can be flagged for demonitisation.  Even something that is “teen” rated or could be “controversial”  Some Youtubers are having the majority of their videos flagged with this change.  It is forcing them to set up a Patreon or rely on Twitch for revenue, and you might start to see some of your favorite content creators disappear if this is not changed.  What can we do?  Well, with a company as big as Youtube, maybe not much.  But social media voicing concerns is a start.  One of my favorite sources The Know has a much more detailed video on this subject.
