Yo guys,
We have always been a channel that focuses primarily on quality for our videos rather than quantity, although we release a lot of tutorials our main work goes into making actual griefing game play videos. Time are tough though as YouTube has shown from time to time now that they do not promote quality as it does not make them that much money. People would rather regurgitate the same content over and over again without any effort or creativity put into videos.
To put it into perspective we could make 4 times the amount we make if we would put our effort in quantity (more videos that are longer, disregarding editing.)
We have been able to barely keep up with the funds that we have earned in the past but but YouTube simply does not give out enough money anymore to sustain quality.
As we are not allowed to show you our earnings I can only say that we make half of what we made last year, and even back then we made barely anything from the channel.
Another thing is that more and more people use ad-block. we won't complain about that, advertisements are extremely annoying and although they keep the website alive they are shoved down peoples throats which makes consuming entertainment inconvenient which it should not be.
The problem that comes with making so little is that quality content takes time to make, to get the right equipment also costs money.
Since equipment like hard drives also slowly break overtime man behind the videos FICO won't really be able to make videos anymore. Since one of his hard drives broke, we have lost a massive amount of footage of bugs that are not fixed. Because we take time to make videos it simply is not worth it to make them anymore.
The main reason we avoided patron is because it is getting shoved down peoples throats because people want to make a living off of YouTube. Our goal is different, we just want the Channel to be able to sustain it self and to be able to invest money and time and time into other projects.
The situation we are in has been made more clear on the forum already.

We don't think highly of perks, the reward for donating to this channel is that you get to watch videos that have heart and effort put into them.
If we would offer things in return in would basically be selling you things,  if we would want to sell something then we would make that clear first and do it on another platform.
We are interested in the possibility the patron feed provide, so pay attention to that if you donate.

To put it simple, we are a bunch of creators that would rather give up the channel than follow the system that YouTube has implemented, due to our focus on quality we are coming out dry and we would love to continue our passion but there is no yield to sustain it self.

TLDR:
We think Quality > Quantity, YouTube only rewards Quantity, thus we can not keep the channel going with YouTube alone.

If you want to contact us or have questions about anything mentioned here go to our forum: http://opengriefing.org/index.php we listen to everyone.

While some would rather would buy two keys you will rather spend your funds on keeping us going and let others enjoy content as well. A thank you can only be said personally.
Goals
$0 of $50 per month
With the money we make we can fund the programs we use for editing, and save up slowly to replace broken equipment.
