"Thank you for your ongoing support of the Nintendo Creators Program".

If you're a YouTuber then you probably don't exactly feel the warm and fuzzies in regards to Nintendo.

Content creators on YouTube have had issues with external links to sites such as Patreon. The email states that "live streaming on YouTube falls outside the scope of the Nintendo Creators Program".

On April 18, 2017, we implemented a new review process for all channels applying to join the YouTube Partner Program.

So with that statement in mind, it would seem that Nintendo has decided that live streaming isn't such a good idea anymore. Before the program's introduction in 2015, any ad revenue for videos with copyrighted Nintendo content went directly to Nintendo.

As several users who combine YouTube with Patreon have revealed, the video platform asks creators to join the YouTube Partner Program to assess the validity of the channel and determine if the channel follows community guidelines and policies. advertisers, so that the company can evaluate if they accept the inclusion of links at the end of the videos that point to Patreon.

"Or, you can cancel your channel's registration to the Nintendo Creators Program and instead, register your videos containing Nintendo's IP to the program separately". The problem with this is that video creators would have to submit those live streamed videos individually to Nintendo for review and they would have to regain their followers and subscribers all over again.

Nintendo has not provided any additional information on why it changed its rules on live streaming its games on YouTube.

It's possible that Nintendo is trying to avoid a similar situation that could involve one of its games.

Russell said he expects to depend more on his own Patreon and other diversified income streams like mobile apps going forward.
