HI Marques, you have 9.5m subs and i am only less than 10 persons now, i just started and i wanted to ask you why my videos does not appear on the recommended channel list but some others from the SAME CHANNEL who already have gazillion viewers have so many of their videos under the recommended section. So how can a small timer like me who just started out get noticed at all if people can't even view my thumbnail? How i can even survive before i grow. This is so frustrating. I spent so much time doing my videos and editing it myself till my fingers hurt.... : (

Also, youtube. Think of serious content creators with R-rated content. You can't have everything PG-13.

"We are running an experiment where 0.3% of viewers will see an auto generated thumb nail,instead of your custom thumbnail. We are not removing the ability to create your custom thumbnail, but we hope to gain insights on auto generated thumbnails for the future" What...is..the point of that?

Dear RUvid, Make a dedicated section entirely for companies/businesses. It would help independent creators (Much like myself) out, have an entire section dedicated to themselves. People would be able to find what type of content they want to see. And there should be an option to toggle this on or off. So people can choose if they want the RUvid that exists now, or the RUvid that *could* be the one most people want to see. TL;DR: Toggleable option for a section dedicated to independent creators. If RUvid ever sees this, Thank you. Even though that is *VERY* unlikely.

I think that you're right on the money about making it optional. If nobody wants to keep it is probably a strong suggestion that we don't like it

Auto thumbnails actually sounds great. At least then will we not fall into clickbaits

RUvid will fail because no one actually understands it's algorithm, that's why they have all these problems they can't actually fix, they need to stop calling the problems tests or new features, half of their tests' are errors they hide and the 'new features' are because the old ones are broken and they need to add new ones asap, they didn't make the subscribe button not work the same for the bell icon, it was a mistake they won't admit

you make lot of money thanks to RUvid and complain about the platform that basically guarantees you a probably very good sallery for a few minutes of talking and editing?! That's wrong! You agreed to that, maybe by just by using the platform or a contract, so you are opt-in. If you don't like it, go elsewhere. And if you just gain views by making a catchy images, or even have to pay because you cant make a catchy image yourself, then you should not be a "creator". Simple as that. You are a tech page, but don't like change

that black diamond on the right is off centered and it annoyed me the whole video. But it is a good video

We are running a small experiment where 0.3% of viewers will see a Jake Paul video, instead of your video. We are not removing the ability to create your videos, but we hope to gain insights on auto-generated videos for the future.

you cant critique youtube in 2018, because opinions that they disagree with is illegal.

Not to mention, RUvid is now policing the morality of its content creators...determing who is worthy and who is not.

The problem here is WHY does it take Marques to tell them the obvious? This is the BAD in Google. Take and undermine the user's control... until they get called out? Good video

absolutely everything should be *opt-in* down to the granular detail "do you want to watch videos?" Yes, user choice is that important.

You're a smart guy man. The way you talk, and the way you present yourself is extremely professional. I really applaud the way your channel has grown over the years. Hopefully RUvid will listen to your tips.
So reasonable. Run for President, please.

I completely agree. As a new content creator, I am really diving into my channel analytics and I want to try to control my tests as much as possible. If RUvid is changing my custom thumbnail, then how am I as the creator to know if the new thumbnail I posted is really the reason for the views/watch time? I hope that RUvid listens to your open letter and takes action.

Please help a channel for Mark Dice he get demonized on every upload and then asks for a manual review which you know would bankrupt your business on youtube. Check out his channel.

I watch a lot of clash of clans, and I was part of that 0.3% and the thumbnails is saw were absolutely horrible!

Thanks for this. No big youtubers really speaks for us small creators.. I wish someone else did speak for community guidelines strikes and copyright strikes... These affects us even much as it's being misused and appeal process being so poor
