Welcome! The forum is open for your use - make sure to follow the rules and everything will be solid around here. As the site grows and expands, the forums will as well. If you're having any troubles, please post them under the 'Report' thread, find updates in the 'Updates' thread, and of course, have a great time chatting with one another and building a community here :)
The reason that I've started OptTube is much more complex than just 'that woman filed a privacy complaint on my video out of spite.' In reality, YouTube is a platform that restricts your ability as a creator to do a lot of things, and this was just one good example. With my own platform to do things on, it'll be much easier going forward for me to connect with viewers, make the content that I want to make, and hopefully build a brand that I want to build. As of right now, it's just me here on OptTube, but if things start going well, I'm open to expanding the platform beyond myself and opening the doors to other creators!
With all of this said, welcome aboard, and have a great time!
