So, I just noticed that my videos are automatically demonetized even before they are done uploading to the site. I decided to check on it after my last video was uploaded and immediately demonetized, even though there was literally nothing offensive in it (unless mentioning Markiplier and wanting to get back into Let’s Plays is demonetization worthy).
This must have happened because for a while I was doing streams on politically sensitive stuff. Now I find it understandable that YouTube might not want ads on some of my videos on politics. I won’t object to that.
But this, how do I deal with this? I know that on today’s YouTube platform, the first day is when the vast majority of the views come in. But the manual review process takes waaaaaaaaaay longer than a single day for me (I have videos that have been waiting on the manual review for literally months). Is there anything I can do other than asking for a manual review though?
For the record, my channel doesn’t have 10,000 views yet so I know I won’t get a single penny from YouTube even if this gets solved. But it’s still very frustrating.
