This is making me really sad because I worked this whole year on an animation to kynfavprte Christmas song, and I really wanted to show you guys. I can't replace the song because I made the entire animation for the song. Months of hard work just to not be able to show you all. I'm so sorry to those of my friends on ng looking forward to see it. YouTube it is now I guess.
Youtube originally removed my Madness Submission because I didn't have a license for that song. The reason they did so was because I mistakenly allowed ads on it.. Once I realized what I did I immediately contacted them to remove the ads, but they didn't. They removed the submission instead. Year on youtube and over 200,000 views gone. But hey that's the risk I took. No ones saying you CAN'T submit fanworks, moreso that you really shouldn't. It really isn't worth the hassle.
Submitting anything you don't have complete rights to still is playing russian roulette with your months and months of hard work. No matter where you submit.
