youtube is over for me

I recently received the message that I cannot subscribe to a channel because I am already subscribed to many channels and have few subscribers. I'm speechless to describe how angry this makes me. Has this ever happened to anyone?

That's the first I've ever heard of anything like that. Does not make sense why there should be a subscription cap.

Maybe the system mistakenly thinks your channel is a spam channel run by a bot.

I searched and here in Brazil has happened to other channels and apparently there is no solution to fix the problem.

I did a quick Google search, and found that the limit is 2000 channels.

YouTube put a cap in place to combat bot channels spamming subscriptions. It is done to encourage real human users to only subscribe to channels that they are really interested in, and figured out that 2000 channels is way too many for a normal person to be interested in.

The only way to get past the cap, is for you to grow your own channel match that many subscribers, after which the cap is lifted.

tragic. I bet many won't be satisfied with that. I think soon channels like haircutzero that has 731 subscribers will be affected too.

I'm not sure how anyone can follow 2000 channels tbh.

100 is already a lot to keep up with.

You can just go back over your subscription list, and unsubscribe from channels that no longer interest you, or have stopped updating in a long time.

At 2000 channels even if every channel only releases every six months that would still be ~11 videos per day. That's kind of ridiculous isn't it?

I have my channel for over 10 years and I also subscribe to music channels and other shit that I like.
