Just want to make clear that we don't lose "90% of ad revenue" - our content has a higher longevity than most YouTube content, so we mostly lose ad revenue in the beginning. That can be substantial if the video is popular.

EDIT: THANKS FOR ALL THE QUESTIONS, GUYS, this was a great spontaneous AMA. We will probably do another one on /r/history very soon and maybe also release another video that should clear up any more confusion after this one. I will try to answer some questions later today.
Why can't youtube allow you to hide your video until it has been cleared or until a certain time while youtube checks the video? Or is such an option already in place?
Not The Great War! That is the best documentary channel I do not have enough time to watch!
The only videos that are fully monetized now are those of giant media corporations. What a fucking shock...
for context: they already had problems with youtube flagging all the videos. They had to contact Youtube, but it took only 3 hours before.
Now it takes 72 hours, pretty much losing the ad revenue from fans, who will watch new videos within 24 hours.
Damn, I fucking hate Youtube messing with creators. /u/flobota

they have a Patreon too. Overall, great guys, great channel. I'm happy I got a bit of attention for them, people should learn more about WW1, more than what they teach in textbooks.
Give me a break! A history channel on YT get de-moned? I'm glad the guys at the Great War don't seem deterred by it.
Ok this needs more attention. Great war channel provides one of the most quality content on the internet. If I were a big company or had a lot of money, I would give these guys all the money they need for the production and research instantly.
I can't believe that we live in a world where fucking vlogers get more revenue from being stupid than these guys for real solid and creative content. That h3h3 shit was on the front page every week so I really hope reddit will show support for this too.
