    Where is Ivan and Luke

    Off-topic not affecting post count is actually pretty common. It's a strange thing, but there are users who shit post just to boost their post count. This lets us prevent that behavior while still allowing people to have random/off-topic discussions.

    Where is Ivan and Luke

    Ivan is no longer with us, I'm afraid.

    In the WAN show yourself and @Slick read Nilay Patel's response which included claims that Nilay Patel was the one that reversed the decision and that YouTube didn't get involved... However those claims are untrue.

    Check the time and date on Kyle's Tweet saying that his video was restored by Youtube, compared to the time and date that Nilay Patel claims he retracted the copyright strike on Bitwits video.

    Kyle's Tweet** was posted 11:02pm 13th February 2019
    Nilay Patels email retracting the takedown notice was 2:15am 14th February 2019.

    **Worth considering that Kyle would have received the email prior to posting a tweet about it, so Youtubes decision to reverse it could have been even earlier. If you were interested in double checking the facts I'm sure @bitwit will be happy to share *when* YouTube sent him an email notifying him of their decision to reverse the claim, and where it lines up in the timeline of events.

    He only sent off the email retracting the claim AFTER Youtube had already intervened and reversed the strike.




    From The Verge article: https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/15/18226105/a-note-about-youtube-copyright-strikes-from-vox-media


    At my direction, the strikes were retracted. Here's the note from YouTube:
    Again, the strikes were retracted at my specific instruction, not through any YouTube dispute process.

    Also on Twitter Nilay Patel lies multiple times stating that *he* retracted the claim, even though by the time he sent that email it had already been reversed by YouTube several hours prior.

    As noted by Kyle in his tweets, after Youtube reversed the copyright strike and issued an email to Vox Media stating that the claim was not valid, Vox Media still had an opportunity to dispute that outcome and continue to pursue the matter. It's possible that Nilay Patels email to Youtube to retract the claim was Vox Medias/The Verges way of electing not to pursue the matter further after the decision to reverse it was already made by Youtube.
    However, Nilay Patel is intentionally lying by saying that YouTube was not involved in the decision as he states that it was "not through any Youtube dispute process" and that it was entirely his/Vox Medias/The Verges decision to retract the claim.

    I'm going to repost this in the thread as well, but I was hoping you would personally take the time to read it or reach out to Kyle personally as I think it is very important as it highlights the tactics and attitude by Nilay Patel and Vox Media/The Verge in regards to the entire incident.

    PS. Thanks for the shout out on the WAN show ❤️

      Keep in mind there is a 3 hour time zone difference between California (Bitwit) and New York, however even with the time zone difference the timestamps still puts Kyle's tweet before the email Nilay Patel sent.

      I would strongly recommend checking the times/dates with Kyle before commenting on it.

  5. This is an excellent explanation of how these things work. I'd like to add that as long as the creator who gets the automated claim disputes it in a timely manner, there is no lost revenue during the period while it was "claimed". I've been down at IBM Think for the last couple of days and this thread is the first I'm hearing of this issue.. Aaaand it's already resolved. So, as far as I can tell, everything is working as it should...ish We have noticed a significant uptick in copyright claims in the last couple of weeks, though, with some of them being in really really old content which suggests youtube has made some kind of change to ContentID and we've been trying to figure out how to address it. We are generally pretty supportive of the creation of derivative works by our community and we want to make sure that they aren't being algorithmically claimed, but this change has caused other issues for us too. I woke up the other morning to a handful of claims made against Tech Quickie by LTT... Can't have that. I'm sure this will be resolved, but it's probably going to take some time for youtube to get their crap in order, as usual.

      What's up with you and this tornado? Do you just have a thing for storms because that is not funny. Also, none of these parts make any sense. Troll


      If you want a build that makes sense here is my main PC that I have been running for around two years now. Yes, these parts are now last gen, but there are some good deals for used hardware online. The prices in this list is about what I paid for new. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yFQYZR




      I'm sorry that I have Autism and I like storms also I wasn't trying to be mean about it

    [POLL] Do you watch LTT's content?

    There seems to be some confusion here. Sponsored content is clearly labeled as such and I don't really know how to make it more clear. There should be no debate as to whether the "bedroom gaming" or "PCs days are numbered" videos were sponsored. They were and it was clearly disclosed. As for the rest of them, if it's not disclosed, it's not sponsored. Often manufacturers send us stuff but other times they don't. It doesn't affect our evaluation of the product. No hard-line tubing manufacturers sponsored our sleeper other than to send over a few bucks worth of tubing. We did glam footage of it because it looks cool lol. Hope this is more clear. I don't mind personal critique, and this thread can remain open as long as everyone refrains from personal attacks against other members. Just make sure you keep that in mind.

    Linus's Jeans

    Urban Star from Costco. The old ones were better (deeper pockets). They aren't great quality - like the fly is waaay offset from center on many of my pairs - but the stretchy material and loose fit make them crazy comfy.
