YouTube/Google Adsense on my account?

  1. YouTube/Google Adsense on my account?

    Since the Will Fry videos on my YouTube account have been gaining in poularity, I got a pop-up box on the main page about applying for a "partnership" to place ads on my videos for $$$. While the message itself is enticing and useful for purchasing IRL raid-related gear, I just wanted to ask around and see if doing this is even worth it.

    On the plus side, I get money for allowing ads on the video, which I would use for saving up for raid gear, such as a flag (our cell is without one sadly), sign-building materials, fliers, etc.

    On the down side, ads can be annoying and having them on a video testimony of a former member seems a bit shitty.

    All in all, I'm more against bothering to do it. But I just wanted to post this and get some feedback from you guys just in the off chance that this AdSense thing actually does do any good. If anybody else has had any experience from this, particularly from YouTube videos, I'd appreciate hearing your input.

    From what I understand, the money from the partnership program isn't great unless you get several thousand views.

    Remember, any claim of fair use is far stronger when no money is made off of the effort. So although it may be fine to do this with the interview, I wouldn't do it with any video where you claim to use the material as a point of fair use.

    I don't see ads due to having "Adblock Plus" on my Firefox.

    well, us viewers have the ability to X out any ads. Do it, and get a couple of cents.

    I will not click on the ads just like I do not on this site ;( Because if people click on them, it give the site some monez. Bad.

    Eh, fukkit, I don't need the money anyway, and after a bit of research it wouldn't do a whole lot of good.

    I say go ahead with the ads, but my only fear is that you start making videos just to get views.

    Phew. felt good to get that off my shoulders.

    Nah, I don't give a shit about view counts. That's what my other account is for :p

    I wish we could manage to find a way to be spam / scam bounty hunters
