When the rules get tweaked again there will be a caveat in that rule that includes "other members or mates clips" smile

Aww, that's a shame. There's a fair few valid contributors to this thread that will be affected should that caveat be introduced....

I usually enjoy the Khan episodes but didn't like this one at all. I'm not sure if he was trying to be funny when he was insulting that guys clothes but mate, it's just disrespectful. I wouldn't stand being talked too like that even if it was just on camera.

Its either one of two things, not funny or he's a complete wker. Either way not a good look.

Fact is. Someone posted a link to a YouTube video that did not break rules but didn’t conform to T&C and it was removed.
So it wasn't removed because it looked like he was posting a link to a video he'd been led to by its maker?

If people weren't able to post links to videos under discussion (in this thread especially and so long at they were done without any input from the maker) I'd have thought the topic would have been locked or deleted.

Anyhow, love the colour of the new M5 competition but £110k? Ouch. Don't quite get the whole 'cold start' obsession on YT either. Great that you can switch to RWD only. What a car. Only thing I don't like is all the M badges.

Done purely in jest quite clearly, its a regular thing they do and the guy with the hat gives it back in other episodes.

Khan is the only channel on YouTube I have blocked from coming up in my recommended list. I am really not a fan of his personality.

How does one block a channel/user?

(On the desktop version, no idea about on a phone or tablet as I am a grown up) If you hover over the video title then 3-dots appear which if you click on gives you a 'not interested' option.

Agree - I really enjoy their videos, great humour between all of them.

If you think of it this way; x people will open YouTube at a given point, if there are 2 new videos of equal strength then you'd see 1/2 of x, if yours was weaker than the other then you might see 1/3 of x. If however you have 5 videos at the same time and yours is the weakest, then you'll have 1/8th of x let's say - clearly significantly worse off. It's something that's literally as simple as how well a video will perform being based on when it went live and who else uploaded at that same minute.
Apologies if this has been said already - in light of the above, is that why you chose to 'drop' your Senna video on Christmas Day, knowing there wouldn't be many other videos 'dropping' that day [apart from the Queens speech but that was prior to your 'drop' - how gracious to let Her Maj go first] and hoping that, at that time, on that day in particular, people would be fed up of their family's and jump on their phone / laptop as an escape whilst Granny / Wifey puts the yorkshires in the oven?

Not to sound too mean, but 'dropping' that on Christmas Day, IMO, was a bit of a cheap win. There may well be some family's where they don't like to interact with each other on such a day - [whatisthisworldcomingto?,veryradio2....]ho hum[/whatisthisworldcomingto?,veryradio2....]]....All our phones / tablets / laptops were off and great family day was had

Actually totally the opposite way around!

On Christmas day you have an unbelievable amount of content being published because most people around the world are not at work - think about how TV channels schedule big content for December 25th for example. Also, if you can theme a content piece like 'unwrapping a Christmas present' then you can trigger much more virality than if it's disconnected too.

In terms of audience, most people are also twiddling thumbs that day, have new gadgets to play with, and are active online wishing their friends and family Merry Christmas - the amount of social engagement is significantly higher than average.

I'm really, really, really surprised they didn't put the name of the new car in the video title and thumbnail - that would have got far more organic traffic, although Carwow operate differently to channels like mine.

I thought the same initially but I was sat next to one in the exact same colour in traffic the other day and it looked bloody lovely. It was really impressive in person and really makes the 6 series seem very dated now.
