Frustrated YouTube Creators Will Get Two Key Development Updates Regarding The Platform’s Policy Changes

It’s no surprise that YouTube’s creators take the platform very seriously. While some earn a part-time income, others’ livelihood is solely based on the type of content created through this app.

Therefore, it’s not surprising to see creators be so upset with the social media giant when it opted to launch changes to its policy which many clearly didn’t see coming.

Now, we’re hearing more news on how the company is launching two new updates in regard to this topic to help tame the growing frustrations. One of them is linked to displaying Timestamps on Community Guideline violations. On the other hand, the other is linked to addressing concerns by the likes of Guided Resolution Flows.

The company has been busy at work in terms of the creation of these timestamps for the past several months. This provides greater insight regarding when violations take place across video clips. When you look at the example provided by the app, it shows how exactly such displays arose in a video and which policy is in question. There are even some links to where the data regarding the policy arose. It’s like adding more transparency to the entire upload process.

Users would similarly be provided with the chance to make appeals against any reports or can delete suggestions they don’t find to be helpful regarding something crucial. Then we’ve got links to how appeals could be used for reports generated. You can even delete any form of relevant segments to ensure one video is up and then regain that monetization status.

For now, such options are only up for grabs for a small number of creators but the app claims it’s working hard to ensure there is an expansion of alerts at the same time.

On the other hand, we’ve got news about how the platform is trying to roll out a guided resolution flow that takes both violations and reports into consideration. The aim is to provide creators with a lot of data on the next few steps that they need to take in response to such concerns.

It wouldn’t be wrong to mention how such a process is very much like timestamp alerts but the only difference is how you’ll now get extra steps including added information and plenty of resources up for grabs. The idea seems to be assisting creators to understand what really is taking place and why there has been a change in the policy in the first place.
