A YouTuber named JT uploaded a video talking about how a translator was ruining Pewdiepie’s channel with translations. There were even English captions that were submitted through community contribution that, instead of writing what was actually said, were jokes, trolling commentary, and just unnecessary things. It even got to the point that people were making vile racist, etc. titles and promoting their websites and YouTube channels in the description boxes of his videos.
This has also happened to other YouTubers and streamers like Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, Keemstar, Pokimane, Logan Paul, and Memeulous.
After a lot of backlash, YouTube has finally made now. It is now 100% certain that YouTubers will have to manually review all submissions that come in, something that I thought was a thing before, but turned out to be not the case.
In the past, I have been very vocal about how viewers needed to stop adding irrelevant commentary to captions, whether it was not intended to be harmful or actually was.
In this video, I will talk about how this incident has changed or even “saved” YouTube captions, but also the issue of the community and even YouTube itself ignoring the work of many deaf people who have been vocal and trying to fix it for years, and suddenly switching gears after one hearing person talked about it.
