Interesting, it opens up for me... Here is the info just in case it will not work.. :)


Over the years TFP has prided itself on the fact that we’re advertisement free thanks to our supporters. As we expand into other venues like YouTube I personally feel it’s vital for us to continue to keep advertisements off our content. Unfortunately that’s easier said than done.

As I was working on uploading todays video I clicked on an older video and was meant with some ads before our video started. This confused me as I knew I had never activated a Google Adsense account. After reading more it turns out…..doesn’t matter.

Over the last year YouTube has altered its Terms of Service to basically allow them to air Ads on our content without paying us a dime, regardless if we joined their Partner Program. This change is one that’s enforced across all of YouTube. I’m not here to say anything if I personally feel it’s right or wrong, I’m just here to be fully transparent that Ads you may see before TFP’s videos aren’t set by us one bit, they’re totally set by YouTube and don’t profit TFP one bit.

Taking this further, I know at least one person will say “forget it then, air Ads and get that money. May as well profit if they’re gonna do it!” At this point this isn’t even an option as TFP isn’t even eligible to profit from Ads even if we wanted to. To be eligible a channel MUST have had over 4,000 hours of watch time over the last 12 months. TFP at this point falls well below this mark. Because many of our videos last year were VERY short we never saw many hours of view time. As I wrote this we’re currently only at 2,313 hours with most the time coming from the longer discussions from this year. This means we’re way below the requirement to profit even if we wanted to.

So to make a “tldr” quote for everybody IF the comment ever comes up accusing TFP of collecting money from advertising on YouTube,
It’s not our call, we’re not large enough yet to be eligible yet Youtube runs Ads on our content without paying us a dime.

thanks, I can't open it at all. for anybody interested, if you have an ad blocker and watch the video from the TFP pages rather than at you tube, you won't see any ads. maybe even at you tube - come to think of it, I only see ads on my "bedside tablet" with no ad blocker.

On occasion i have to clear my cache & history then log in again or i get these messages. I think the server gets mad if u keep too many pages open using the same Mac address as I often do for referencing.

I have the same problem with that thread. I opened it in Incognito Mode on Chrome just fine. So I went and disabled my AdBlock extension and it opened. Something with the thread doesn't like the AdBlocker.

Kind of amusing considering it's a thread about ads.
