    What can we do to protect ourselves, should we set our videos to private and try to weather out the storm. Would this even help?

    I am nowhere near as popular as those channels above that have been terminated or given strikes. 
    I have no issue at all leaving youtube for another site but, it has become my home and it’s where I’d like to stay.
    As I recall, this started a few months back due to advertisers not wanting their names associated with anything that had to with any sort of shooting. So, I will be going through the process of demonetizing all of my videos. To date, Youtube has put $105.00 into my account for over 2 years worth of videos and the countless days worth of time I’ve spent recording, editing, and posting them. That’s not much of a revenue stream for that amount of work. So, forget the ads! I’d rather put videos out there for free than deal with all this nonsense! Heck, I’ve been given more than that in straight up donations and donations towards the Stormrider giveaway. Now, I feel like I may not be able to give it away in time before getting kicked off YT! 
    I like posting up videos that help people out whether it’s a how-to, showing you a product, or just goofing around. I started my channel as a way to reach out to the community and I want to continue to do so. 
    Thanks for the support!

    Demonetizing won’t help.  As a manner of fact I believe it’s why my channel was terminated first
    .  None of my videos were monetized.  I think they thought ” this guy brings zero money to us and sells a product we find morally reprehensible”.

    Could not ask for a better ambassador. A fantastic use of his long, prosperous relationship with YT.

    As many of you have seen YouTube is deleting air gun related accounts. Read below and message YouTube on Facebook to see if we can be heard!

    If you search YouTube in Facebook they have a page you can message. Please let’s all send this message to it and have our voice heard!!!  Just copy and paste the link to this video with a message asking that it be forwarded up the chain.

    Admin I hope this is OK with you, if not please Delete this message!
    Please join us, the Airgun community into asking YouTube!
    To please consider and reconsider their stand on how they view our community.
    We are a small community but we have many good hearted and kind hearted people! We are a community of men and women who like having fun with Airguns.
    Many of us are making a living either by selling products through various channels, or by creating recreational as well as educational videos in this sport, that has been around for many, many years!
    So this is a Plea to Mr. Robert Kincl from YouTube, not only from Ted Bier “Ted’s Holdover” , but a plea from all of us Airgunners.
    Please help us keep our Sport videos, and the livelihood of many who earn a living by producing these videos, as well as promoting an Industry which is much smaller than the firearms Industry.We are a small ripple in the ocean of Firearms, but many of us are Ethical and professional people who abide by the laws, and try to have fun while doing so.So we ask you Robert Kincl Sir. to please help us out in this situation.

    Thank you Ted and Michael!

    If a bakery can be sued (and demonized) because it didn’t want to bake a cake for a wedding couple it didn’t agree with, how can what YouTube is doing be that much different?

It appears that account was also taken down. I hope YouTube either reconsiders their stance or at the very least we find another worthy platform to support our community. Thanks AEAC and Ted

    I really hope this can be worked out. I’d be really bummed  if airgun channels got railroaded off of yourube.

    Wow, photobucket put the shaft to us last year, and now Youtube this year?

    Thanks for all you do Michael and Ted. And thanks to Mr Giles too. I saw his video before his channel was terminated.

    Giles has his own channel, maybe he can share something there with us?    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKo0PRhGQUSQxsHtVOY439Q/videos
