Youtube Contest — Important

January 12th, 2009 at 12:38 pm by Kaleb Nation

Despite what the contest video says, I have NOT violated any Youtube terms.

I am under the impression that a group of Twilight-haters flagged the video repeatedly, so it was taken down.

I have already contacted Youtube. YOUR ENTRIES ARE NOT LOST. The video will be back up ASAP. Sorry for the delay, but that happens when you have people who hate you 😀

UPDATE: It turns out, besides the flagging, that Youtube does not know the power of Twilighters. They marked my video as spam, because it got so many comments (75,000 in 2 days) that they thought I had set up robots to comment repeatedly! I just finished replying and explaining that it is perfectly normal for Twilight fans to take over comment boxes, and how famous Robert Pattinson is. Hopefully they’ll be putting the video back soon!

    Hu? Those people who flag for no reason make me sooo mad -__- (one of my video was taken off because someone frustrated flagged it repeatedly….)
    Hope you can put your video back with no more problems! :)

  2. Zella

    What sad, sad people. You’d think they’d have better things to do than flag your video.

  3. Loony_Lovegood

    Wow. i think you need to find out who it was. And tell us. and let us flag THEIR vids. immediately.
    Thanks,
    Loony

    Yeah Loony!!! let’s track them down!! lol…

    Sorry to hear kaleb :( Hope it get’s back up soon!!

    Hugs^^

    BTW: You’re awesome!!

  5. Anna Kate

    Blah! Stupid Twilight haters.

  6. Heather

    They should really just take the whole flag system down. It’s only used as a hate system and doesn’t do any good.

  7. Ally

    Awww… I’m sorry the haters hate you. We’ll be waiting for it to come back up!

  8. mads

    That was NOT nice of them,
    sorry Kaleb!!!

  9. Saumia

    twilight haters are annoying

  10. BabySis

    Are you kidding? That’s just ridiculous. YouTube needs to find a better control system, like a way to report why content was inappropriate. If you can’t give a reason, the flag shouldn’t count.

    That, and people need to stop wasting their time complaining about things they dislike. If you don’t like Twilight, I’m okay with that. It’s your prerogative. But, please, don’t ruin it for the rest of us. Find something you DO like, and spend your time and attention on that, instead.

  11. JessieLynn

    That is totally lame. Whomever did this has no life and needs to leave well enough alone. We don’t flag their videos just because we don’t like what they have to say, so they shouldn’t either. Also, it is a violation of our right to free speach.

  12. Amber Pederson

    I don’t think the internet has too many established rights at present, actually… Companies online have the ability to decide what you can and cannot say for that matter. It’s even a gray area as to cyberbullying, which is CRAP.

    But that’s ridiculous. YouTube should monitor their flagging system better.

  13. Kaleb Nation

    What really makes me sad is that my channel lost all its honors because of this. I was #10 most viewed and the video was #1 :(

    I am very upset at Youtube for allowing these spammers to take my video down. It is making me look really bad that the huge contest video is not working, when all the Twilight websites posted about it. Sorry people, I’m trying to get it back as quickly as I can :(

  14. Amanda Cullen

    Wow. It’s so inconsiderate and immature of people to purposely upset others for amusement…Hope the video come back successfully. :)

  15. Andrea S.

    Don’t worry Kaleb, we know it’s not your fault. (:

  16. Ricky

    It’s probably those HotHoboLove people that did it lol.

  17. Annie

    Aww, poor Kaleb.
    You need a hug.
    *Hugs*

    People can be such idiots. I hate when I hear that people hate Twilight when half of them have never even read the series. If you want to hate something, you have to know what it is first. There’s no way of knowing whether you hate or not if you don’t try it out first.

    Sorry for that rant, it just pisses me off when people absolutely hate Twilight without even reading it. And then they act as if you’re a lesser being or something for liking it. I’ve heard them say that Twilight as no literary value and that stupid little joke books are better literature. I’ve been in a room with people who are Anti-Twilight and it sucks. Ugh

    Again sorry for this rant. I just get annoyed.

    I’m sorry that you have had to deal with Anti-Twilight people, Kaleb. I hope everything gets worked out and that this kind of thing doesn’t happen in the future… :(

    I’m glad you didn’t lose all of our entries! I have about 20 or so!!!!

  19. DukDany

    WTF!!!!!! Let´s track them down and “kill” their videos.

  20. DukDany

    Also, I´m sorry Kaleb, but don’t worry we´ll help you put your channel in #1 again

  21. yen

    omg are you serious? gosh i really dont like these twilight haters. gettum kaleb! lol

  22. CourteyQ

    Well thats depressing that spammers get enjoyment from flagging twilight related videos :(
    But I’m glad it will be back up soon :)
    (p.s. sorry you lost all of your honnors :( :( :( )

  23. Ember P

    SO sorry that happened! Stupid people.

  24. Amber Pederson

    Ew. Wth? So you lost your honors because some immature little brats thought it’d be fun to, essentially, FLAME you? Ugh. You probably don’t know the answer to this, but would you get them back if YouTube removed the flags on the video? Hope everything works out!

  25. Jazz

    I hope you get your honors back! Why is it that there are so many people out to ruin Twilight for those of us who love it?

  26. Marisa

    That’s okay, Kaleb. None of us are mad at you at all!

    And don’t worry, I STILL LOVE YOU!:)

  27. Carolyn

    Some people have no class (or brains come to think of it).

  28. Claire

    I’m sorry about your honors, Kaleb!

    It’s really sad that some anti-Twilighters will go to such extreme lengths to stop something Twilight-related. I see them on almost every video I watch on YouTube now. It’s even more frustrating when they have no support to back up their claims on how Twilight “sucks” – and not in the good way.

    Hope everything works out!

  29. tyabelle

    I am truly sorry…
    And some info to share… some other guy has posted your video as one of his own: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTksVJDIp8Q

  30. Lola

    Hey don’t just assume Twilight-haters are to blame, thank you very much.

    I really don’t like these books (it is verging on hate) despite my friends unbearable obsession with them – but I HAVE read the books (you gotta have objectivity after all!) and I still love Twilight Guy. SO FUNNY.

    If you haven’t noticed, expressing your dislike of something is pefectly reasonable. Some Twilighters are much worse toward people who dislike these books! That said if it was them they shouldn’t have been so harsh.

  31. Heather

    To Lola

    Thank you for at least trying the books!! Your hate is justified. I don’t like it when people are saying they hate Twilight but haven’t even given the books a chance. It’s those type of people who I call “Twilight haters” because they hate them just to hate them. It’s also those type of people who probably flagged Kaleb’s video. So I appreciate that you attempted to read them =)

    […] Kaleb Nation, the Twilight Guy, has an update about his YouTube Contest of Awesome. […]

  33. Bella

    AWWWW!!! and today was probably my last day I could comment and now I can’t because twilight haters (WHO HATES TWILIGHT??!?!?!?!?) flagged it….. Let’s track them done….hehehe. I’m so sorry Kaleb. I would never believe you to put up robots to comment so much. I will vouch for you!!!!!!But sorry they think you did that.

  34. Viki

    How mean are people? Glad you let them know a awesome we are!

  35. Shannon

    power to the people! Thanks for the update Kaleb.

  36. janetH

    This is incomprehensible! That ANYONE working within the internet world would not have a clue about Twilighters and the power they emanate.
    How can that possibly be? How can they exist and not have heard about the enormous passions the Twilight fans have?
    This smacks of some improbable circumstance. Even the clueless have knowledge of Twilighters.
    Nah. I am suspicious and doubtful of any simple explanation here.
    Kaleb, do NOT allow them to bully you! It is people like YOU that makes YouTube famous and noteworthy.
    Keep up the good fight.
    Right is on your side.
    As well as Twilight Fans!

  37. Cat

    urghhh! not fair.. i didnt even get to check it out. when i went to look at it.. youtube already took it down :'(

  38. Alison

    Youtube is seriously stupid. Lots of Twitubers like SmokeyFizz and hauntedhogwarts85 and other reeeeeeeeeally great Twitubers got suspended/banned! That’s why almost everyone is moving to Imeem.com and/or Vimeo.com. So much better! *and better quality, even in hd*
    Good luck with your video and all the responses! :)

  39. Bekah

    I’m sorry Kaleb. That is so wrong of them. I don’t get why they can’t just leave us Twilight fans alone. This is what makes us happy so why can’t they just be fine with that We don’t put down the things that make them happy. It’s just plain rude and cruel!

  40. Sia

    That’s so STUPID ! People can’t leave Twilight alone because ? THeir bored ? Jealous ? THAT’S JUST DUMB AND IT PISSES ME OFF THAT THEY HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO !!! I HOPE IT HITS THEM IN THE A*S ONE DAY !!!

    LOVE MY TWILIGHT AND KALEB HOPE you get it up soon :)

  41. Sia

    And you know you’ve hit it BIG WHEN YOU GET ALOT OF HATERS :)

  42. Kass

    Lola-

    That’s fine you don’t agree with us the people who love it and you have every right to voice your opinion but HONESTLY can’t you find a hate site to do that or a anti Twilight site ?
    THIS IS A PRO TWILIGHT FANSITE. I get it your doing it in a nice way and want people to know AND WE KNOW THEIR ARE PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE IT BUT HONESTLY I READ ABOUT THAT STUFF EVERYWHERE ELSE AND WOULD LOVE TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS WITH PEOPLE WHO LOVE THE SERIES AND NOT HAVE TO READ ALL THE NEGATIVE OPINIONS which is sad that people can’t just enjoy what they love and leave those who love certains things ALONE. And I also don’t agree how some people go about voicing their opinion either but thank you for doing it in a classy way !

  43. Sione

    Lola really ?

    Twilight fans just want to enjoy talking Twilight ! I’m sure you can find somewhere else to share your opinions if we want to read about that stuff well find it somewhere on hate sites.
    And it’s obvious we can’t enjoy anything without negative opinions.
    Sure it’s a free country and your free to voice your opinions but really here ?
    WHATEVER !

  44. Caroline

    How immature of those “haters”. It seems like they just can’t help ruining the fun of others, just for their own enjoyment. And that, my friend, is just pathetic. At least you know that you’re the better person. :)

    I can’t technically fault Youtube for underestimating us, but I’m going to anyway.

  45. Lola

    Wow people! All I said was that I personally don’t like the books – that was all. I was NOT dissing you liking them. No hating coming from this corner. And in case you failed to notice I told you I LIKE Twilight Guy – it is FUNNY. Surely you find it the same?
    All I said was that some of us who dislike the books aren’t ALL bad. But hey apparently that means I should never come to this site and I should be banned from commenting? Wow yeah Twilighters are obviously SO FAIR.
    Fine. Gone. Won’t visit this site again. Thanks.

  46. tyabelle

    Lola –

    Don’t be mad, we aren’t all so bad 😀
    I believe that everyone has a right to their own opinion, even if it isn’t mine 😀
