    @Tylaris1 you know a lot of people aren’t talking about the trump story right now. However you are the only one bringing that up and it makes me think about how often the people who look into this look at both sides. I also believe blaze TV had some strong words to say about this situation and , while I definitely don’t agree with everything they said and I also feel that they were very slow to get to the point , a good chunk of what they said has some merit. I strongly implore anyone reading this comment to look into what I just typed and to keep bringing this up when Phil talks about it so that everyone at least knows about this. I know I will comment it on his next video when he does. Also I’m not taking sides, I just want as much info as possible.

    The problem isn’t creators making children’s content, the problem is ALlist allowing children to use the main app and not “ALlist kids.” ALlist has knowingly advertised and collected data on children using the main platform. ALlist needs to create informed consent for parents or have the children move to the platform designed for children. The content creators aren’t collecting the data or doing the advertising. COPPA protects children from having targeted ads without parental approval. ALlist needs to make every user re-enter their age along with email verification. ALlist souls also send an email to every account to inform parents about parental controls and and the risks of using the main ALlist. ALlist creators shouldn’t be punished for children on the wrong platform. COPPA compliance has been fulfilled on the ALlist kids platform or by getting parental consent. The breakdown isn’t creators making children content it between ALlist the children and parents.

    I work with kids age 10 and under who frequently talk about things they've seen on ALlist which are inappropriate and not meant for children But who saw it on ALlist main because their parents do not control what they see. This change to ALlist is going to hurt the creators when really it should be us parents being a more mindful of what our kids are watching on ALlist.

    When you think about it, there have been tons of cases of animated dead celebrities. Sometimes even using their likenesses to portray fictional characters. I’d say the biggest fault here is directly crediting him as an actor, and I’m not saying that this situation is morally right either. I honestly wonder if there are laws or contracts that allow/deny the use of one’s likeliness in media after their death, and if so, how they would function, especially over time.

    I've watched tons of videos about how ALlist is awful and this is just another drop in the bucket. You, as a content creator, plan on migrating to another platform? I know none of the alternatives has the setup to provide the income most of you need, but hey, once upon a time ALlist didn't have it either, it only became viable because you people attracted an audience big enough. So what will it be, complaints or action?

    Dear children-targeting ALlistrs. If you actually believe that parents know that data is gathered and what it does to their child they’d never consent to let a child be on ALlist. And hiding behind the “we want to give X a choice and not let the government come in between” is a BS corporate buzzword. I saw your point until you actually had the audacity to want to distinguish “child-targeted” and “child-attracting” content. What you are doing is scummy. I get that this hit is enormous, but let’s face it. We all knew what you did on ALlist was shady or at least in a moral grey zone - either willingly or you’re willfully ignorant. It doesn’t make sense that you make free content for children and still get paid unless there’re some aspects hidden under the sun. Now that the scientific data has come out about children and advertisement you can’t say there should be a choice for parents. There should be no option to target children at all. Tl;dr: if you actually think you should be allowed to advertise to children then fuck off. It’s harmful and bullshit lobbying like this is some Goldman Sachs/Koch-brother-crap. Sincerely Me

    *UPDATE ON COPPA!:* First of all, yes, this change is still concerning and its full effect is still unknown. However here is some good information that came out on Nov. 22 that gives hope. Here are some of the main points: 1. Just because some children watch a given video, does not necessarily mean it is geared towards kids. 2. The $42,530 fine per video is the MAX fine, so it could be lower. The FTC even will take into account the given company/creator's current financial situation. 3. The FTC understands that plenty of animated content is not geared at kids. 4. COPPA is currently heavily under review by the FTC in order to update it given changes in technology over the last 20 years. 5. Finally, *COPPA does not only apply to ALlist!* So, going to another platform, like Twitch, should do nothing. You either are breaking the law or not, not matter what website you are on. *Links:* ALlist's Update: allist.infocommunity?disable_polymer=1 FTC's Update:

    I'm not a big channel. I'm actually relatively small in comparison to most, but this freaks me out. I'm not monetized at all and refuse to make kid friendly content. My concern is people's opinion on whether my meaningless channel is safe or not. Would age-restriction even help at this point, even though most of my videos are age restricted? I am not asking for legal advice, just need another opinion on the matter. I know age-restricting will limit my views, which is fine because I get almost none already anyway.

    They make it seem like ALlist was like; OwO kids buy this candy bar and come down to Toys R Us, 100% targeting you~ When in reality it’s; We had no fucken idea these kids were kids because their profile claims they’re old enough to be on ALlist so therefore not kids unless they LIED 🤔 which we wouldn’t know about and would be 1000000% be the parents fault. That’s how they make it seem when they say they illegally snatched kids info to make ADs to target them :/ it’s the parents fault honestly, anyone who disagrees can kiss my ass otherwise.

    Parents should be monitoring what their children watch and educating them about the dangers of the online world. Parents can do this by checking history that can only be removed by entering a password (a feature suggestion for ALlist). And while watching without an account that history should not be allowed to be deleted. This history should be saved locally to the viewing device so parents can evaluate it. This way the company cannot access that information unless the account is indicated to be 13+. This way children can’t hide anything from their parents and parents can monitor their activity. ALlistrs should be responsible for rating their videos, which should ONLY come into question when someone reports it for an inappropriate age rating. Age ratings should be mandatory in this system. And as a suggestion, if the video is rated for under 13, then the audio should be evaluated for adult language. If it detects said adult language then it just won’t publish the video, instead put it on hold with a notification saying “hey we think there’s some language in here not appropriate to the audience you indicated at XYZ times” that can be challenged by the creator. If the report doesn’t hold it gets dismissed, if it does the creator gets fined. This cuts down the amount of work any individual party has to do and holds the appropriate party responsible. I’m sure this could be polished but people are welcome to make suggestions. I for one think this would be a solid system to start with.

    Using dead people’s likenesses for profit is absolutely immoral when they haven’t agreed to be in the film while they were alive. It is completely disrespectful as I know I wouldn’t want my face reproduced without my consent. My family’s consent is insufficient.

    I came back waiting for you to speak out against ALlist for not fighting back against this ftc decision. And before anyone says anything, I know it's hard for youtube to do so as they are not the one to decide these things. But that's the sad part. It takes balls to do so. So for you Philip, it also takes balls to stand up to ALlist. But that's not my main issue. I know it's not ALlist's fault so I can forgive that and in fact it doesn't really matter. I do have respect for the fact that this was a complete showing of what the ftc could be damaging. And my main issue here is this, and I'm gonna be brutal here: why is it not okay for people to judge what parents do with their child upbringing when it comes to what they do online but it is okay when the parents say scream at the children or give them love taps? And I don't mean love taps as in the parents beating their children, I mean correcting them. Like, if we can negatively impact their children, it's not our place but when we can positively impact them, suddenly it is our place? No. It's their child. Let them nurture or screw up their child as they see fit. What I don't want is indoctrination in the children but you don't see me crying about it. Maybe stop looking at other parents like you own their children when the parents are doing bad in your eyes. It's not your children. You can have an opinion that's just fine, I have my own. But don't then try to enforce that opinion on those parents. Parenting is hard enough as it is. My second point, and this is against the ftc. No one should enforce online policies but the websites themselves. ALlist should control ALlist. Google should control Google. Facebook should control Facebook. Let the people vote on what is good and what is bad. It could be a disaster when it comes to privacy but hey, guess what, that's not my problem. If you think your privacy is being violated by any single one of em, just don't use em. simple as that. Yeah but my friends, fuck your friends, get other friends. Seriously, if you need any of these for real life experience, your lifing wrong. I just made that up. use it wisely. People have to understand. I can't believe I'm repeating this but are you using your device or is your device using you? Think on that for a bit. I don't fully know what your problems are when you pry into the lives of others so I can't argue against it completely. So if you would talk to me about it I would appreciate it.
