The Rise and Fall of Cosplay Girl

So here is what happened, Cosplay Girl hit a total of 2,605 views in 9 days! Crazy!! Given that my past videos maxed out around 450. The support, emails, text messages where overwhelming for this song! Even the downloads where a lot higher for March Madness II compared to all my other projets. I really want to thank my friends A.k.Aye and Erikah Tha Kitty for helping out on this record and also thank Random aka Mega Ran and Forcee the Kid for their features on the whole mixtape. 

Back to my point, so last friday before I went to bed I wanted to watch the music video again and I noticed it wasn't playing. I then check my video manager and it was suspeneded because Youtube belived that I paid someone third party to promote the video and claimied that I was using "robots" and "spiders". basically wrongfully accuring views either threw spamming, tricking people, and or forcing people to watch my video (How do you force anyone to watch your video! Really?!?!) So I sent my appeal (fyi never send an appeal somewhat pissed off! lol) and they denied it still claiming that I used illegal means to gain viewers. This was a heavy blow! All that work, all that effort, everyone's support!! You all made Cosplay girl awesome and I thank you for it.

Now on a side note, I am not saying anyone did but, please do not use any form of "robot" or "spider" sharing for me or any other artist. To any artist do not pay anyone to get you more views!! Youtube is really on the crack down of us indie artist on the rise. Here is the statement they left me so that you all can see:

Hi there,
 
We've reviewed your appeal regarding your video(s) removal and concluded that the decision to remove your video(s) was justified.

Copies of the removed videos have been reuploaded to your channel (on a new URL as a fresh video without previous views, likes and comments etc.). You can now share these with other YouTube users. However, should your account be found in violation of our Terms of Use #4 Section H again, your account may be suspended without the possibility for appeal.

For your reference, TOU #4 Section H states:

You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," or "offline readers," that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the YouTube servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, YouTube grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. YouTube reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service (e.g., comments, email) for any commercial solicitation purposes. You agree not to solicit, for commercial purposes, any users of the Service with respect to their Content.

Services that attempt to gain views through automated means or that force or trick viewers into watching videos are not ok. This could be through a variety of means, including, among other things, deceptive layouts on third party websites that trick viewers into playing a video when they click unrelated elements on the page. It might also be serving up embedded videos instead of intended content, serving pop-unders, re-directing and/or a variety of other methods people use to try to inflate viewership.

If you are going to contract someone to help promote your content, it should be someone you absolutely trust, as you may be putting the fate of your channel (and your business on YouTube) in their hands. If they are using methods that aren’t within our terms, you will be the one to pay the price, as it will be your videos and your channel that get taken down. And don’t just take their word for it - ask the tough questions, find out how they promote your content and do your due diligence. Ultimately, you are responsible for knowing and abiding by our terms - this means understanding the nature of the traffic on your channel and making sure you are in compliance with our terms. Ignorance of bad traffic or other actions taken on your behalf may lead to your account being removed from YouTube.

Crazy huh?! Well what's done is done and Youtube will not undue what they wrongfully have done. All I can say is that the rise was amazing and the fall hurt like a million bricks landing on my chest!  The vide has been uploaded again via youtube as their "condelences" but they are watching my account now. So feel free to share, like the video, but just don't force anyone. I do not want to hear any horror stories of someone with a spoon to their head being told that if they do not watch the video your going to scoop their eyes out or something (Really force someone!!!) Thank you all again for your support and I will be finding a new Video Hosting Server real soon! Thank you all for your support! We shall rise like the Dark Phoenix!! See you all at 626 Fest this weekend in Monrovia! If you need tickets hit my email darealwordsound@gmail.com  PEACE!!
