    Anyone got any idea why this fucks up the rest of the page?

    Removed, hopefully it'll fix it. If you wanna see it go check out general discussion.
    I need a link to the thread or a screenshot or something. "go check GD" doesn't help since I don't know what I'm looking for.

    So I found out I can look at ad performance on my YT channel. I thought I didn't have this option inside of a network. But apparently, my videos are producing 8x the revenue that I'm being paid from Machinima. But due to my contract I'm capped. I could be making a few hundred bucks a month, instead I'm bringing in like barely enough to fill up my car.

    This is kind of disgusting.

    I hope I am both reading this incorrectly and reading this correctly. If it's true and I could move to a different network on a shared payment like 90/10 from Curse, I could be making significantly more money on my same channel.

    No wonder Machinima has been trying to give me all these growth opportunities. But not bothering to talk to me incase I try to leave.

    Edited:

    TL:DR I could be getting not just fucked over but royally fucked over by my contract with machinima if my YT analytics is to be believed. If I left and simply moved to another network on a shared payment system I'd be making enough money to pay for school automatically.

    Still trying to understand the numbers I'm seeing. Basically CPM is rate for how much a video is making per 1000 monetized views. So a CPM of $2 which I was contracted for in 2011 means I'm paid the gross revenue of $2CPM. This means that Youtube takes it's cut which is 45% and then machinima takes another cut I think. I used to get paid pure $2 per any views.

    What this shows me is that i have crazy high CPM. Like 6-8 for the last few years. That's amazing. Some people hit 10 for like a day or something. But I have very high CPM consistently, so then YT takes their cut of 45%Then I'm left with about 3-4$ RPM, then my network would take a cut, if it's with this Curse network I might see $3 to 3.5 RPM which is my personal revenue. I'm getting like less than $1 right now. So this is significant, assuming I'm reading this right.

    Youtube, Partership, and motherfuckin Machinima.
    Does it help if one account views your videos multiple times during the day or night? And do mobile views count too?

    No one gets paid for mobile views. Only youtube does. Those are registered as views though.


    Also if you are actually viewing it, then yes works but if you're thinking of setting up a server to view my videos, you can get my account banned, so I'd probably request you just watch what you want to watch.

    That's seriously the dumbest shit, sure it stops people from trying to ramp up their revenue, but it lets you get people banned from adsense by pretending to be them, or asking people to go and click all your ads
    I think it was Eddy or somebody here who got banned from adsense because some French forum was telling people to go click the ads on his site

    Which is why even threatening to clickbomb is dangerous. And your adsense is linked to your SS# so it's basically gone for good.

    That's atleast good about a network, they take the heat from google.

    Doesn't YT force you to sign with a network if you're doing gaming videos and you want to become a partner? If it's still this way it's fucking stupid.

    You're not forced. The general idea is if you're going independent, you must have permission or licenses to monetize the content. Networks generally have a department dedicated to handling that for you. So you basically can monetize any game.

    There is no longer a "Partner" program anymore. Everyone is a partner simply via monetization.

    Edited:

    I want to but people have gotten sued by machinima for that. Years ago, you could be sued for not uploading anything since the original contracts said you'd upload once a week or something.
    They are much bett-less shitty.

    I am drafting a big email with all my problems and how much I want to leave and how horrible the experience has been, and I have two friends who say they got some people who work at machinima on facebook. Going to try and hand it to them and see if I can get this past support. Which actually removed the contract termination category for the tickets.

    I'm considered a "partner" but I don't have any videos set to be monetized.

    I'm probably never going to set up the actual money bit, but if I wanted to upload a video over ten minutes I got that shit covered, yo.

    My friend wishes he had monetisation on his old account
    He has a 10 second video, no copyrighted material, and 50,000+ views
