I though his explanation was that they were adults who had been conditioned to think like kids and essentially live like children do but without the jobs kids need to take
Sort of? All we really know is that adults go to school to re-learn how to be creative, so it's safe to assume elders are busy doing something creative.

He enjoys pointing out flawed logic and things that don't work in cartoons that can easily be ignored or have some sort of comedic value, yet his entire universe/world that his story takes place in is extremely confusing and FILLED with flawed logic that makes hardly any sense. In his mind he's doing it "right" though and it doesn't matter

I know it's been said but his idea could work for one episode of a show but that's it... giving this an entire series gives the audience too much time to think about things like how the characters reproduce and make new generation of adult children, or how the kids reprogrammed into being children when they become adults if they were able to be kids normally until "adulthood" except for having a job and running government, it just seems like kids and adults are exactly the same in tastes and maturity levels... except the fact that children have authority and adults have to give all their basic rights up even though they are fully capable of independence, you know, unlike a child.

Are babies taken care of by the kids since they take on adult roles, or do the grown ups that birthed them care for them despite the fact they already "adulted" and now have to give up all responsibility? Are... old people considered cutesie and trained to act as infants until they die? ...Are Sally's parents a couple or like.... brother and sister?

I honestly struggle to read the script... it just doesn't hold my attention very well, nothing unexpected ever happens. It's also hard to keep track of who is talking despite the fact the person's name is right in front of their line because it just feels like the same personality throughout all the characters. If he ever explained any of these things or wrote "special episodes" just to show how that stuff works someone please tell me because I would be interested in the mental gymnastics involved in his world building.

So, earlier today I did a Livestream on my YouTube account. It's very rare that I do this, and lately when I do this, it's usually talking about bad news. This time was no exception. The livestream is here, if you want to get the full experience of it (and you got a lot of time to spare): [link]

Let's talk about exactly what had happened. YouTube has... in a sense, demonetized my entire channel. Well, that's not entirely true. You see, when a video or a channel gets demonetized, the user is still able to get some money from things like YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red). However, YouTube flat out removed me from the partnership program, so I don't even get that.

To quote the email that I got verbatim:
"Hi TheMysteriousMrEnter,
During a recent review, our team of policy specialists carefully looked over the videos you’ve uploaded to your channel TheMysteriousMrEnter. We found that a significant portion of your channel is not in line with our YouTube Partner Program policies. As of today, your channel is not eligible to monetize and you will not have access to monetization tools and features. Please go to your monetization page to read more about the specific policy our specialists flagged.
We know this is tough news, and sometimes we have to make difficult decisions. We have a responsibility to ensure our community is safe for creators, viewers and advertisers. At the same time, we understand that you may have unintentionally made mistakes. That’s why you’ll be able to reapply for the YouTube Partner Program in 30 days. This 30-day time period allows you to make changes to your channel to make sure it’s in line with our policies."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, what the hell did I do? I mean, maybe my channel was becoming too edgy or too political or too advertiser unfriendly. After all, I had to talk about a lot of taboo stuff and people in my Technocracy series. And there was that Let's Not Be Skeletons video. That was pretty political, as well as Everything is Offensive. I mean, I thought they were politically safe, but... actually, that's not what got my channel demonetized.

The reason that they used "Reused Content." What does that mean? Does that mean that I've been uploading other people's videos, or making the same video over and over again? No, it means copyright. I think. You see, they don't actually tell you what it means specifically. They do say you can click on a link to learn more about Fair Use and Copyright Infringement, so... fair use is apparently still something that exists in theory.

Now here's the thing, for the most part, whenever I get a copyright claim on any individual video, I make damn sure to fight it. Even if I didn't though, I wouldn't be getting money for those copyrighted videos anyway. But fair is fair, and I went looking through as many of my videos as possible. There were a couple of claims. The most recent one was for Ink Lemonade. It wasn't Viacom though. It was AdRev for a 3rd Party, our old favorite company. And they claimed a background music piece in the track. Most of the other claims were like that. The ones that weren't, I disputed, even things like Fa-La-La-La-Ed, which had been claimed by the same company three times.

However... YouTube's video editor tools don't work. I demonstrated that pressing the "remove song" button does nothing. It keeps giving me an error. And the actual video editor has the same problem. Then there's the Cartoon Network in 2017 video... that video doesn't even let me challenge the copyright claim. The option is just not there.

To find the stuff that really gets dinged you have to go back to the MLP days, where Hasbro basically flagged everything. But... that was years ago. Like... they copyright claimed everything before I even applied for monetization. I believe I applied for adsense around My Life Me, and the videos after that are all pretty clean. Another option would be to take down the infringing videos that I can't fight, but YouTube makes it so that that's not an option.

Here's how the algorithm works - if someone is getting a lot of views and a lot of retention, they'll tend to be linked and suggested and ranked more. However, if you remove a video that has say... 250k views, your viewcount for that day will be whatever you got, -250k, which absolutely destroys search rankings. And in a situation like this, when that's one of the few things that you still have, that would not be wise.

And as you've seen with the email, I cannot try and become a partner again for 30 days. I'm hoping that I at least get the adsense that I've earned so far this month, but I wouldn't put it past Google to withhold that as well. I am going to try and apply again when this month is over, but I don't have confidence in my content being deemed appropriate by whatever "specialist" looked at it. As... the "reused content" excuse has been used for... a wide swath of everything. Most infamously, someone who did piano tutorials.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now more than every, I absolutely need your support in any way possible, and I've gone about opening up as many avenues as possible to make that as easy as possible. The first and most importantly is to follow me on as many of my social media sites as possible.

This right here DeviantArt, has been my biggest base camp away from YouTube, so this is probably where you'll find the most important updates. While I have and have had problems with the site, I do think this is one of the genuinely good social media sites that at least somewhat cares about its userbase and does want to do its best among them. It really feels like they have a culture going on here, with plenty of its own tight nit communities.

My website is safe from everything, so I will be safe there: www.mysteriousmisterenter.com/
There's also my twitter for more micro updates: twitter.com/MysteriousEnter
My Challenge Accepted YouTube account still has monetization for some reason: www.youtube.com/channel/UC0UAB…

The idea of it is that I do crazy video game challenges, like play A Link to the Past with randomized items, but lately it's become dedicated to the task of playing through every PlayStation 1 game released in NTSC. If you want to see it done live, I'm actually growing a fairly decent Twitch following, which you can find here: www.twitch.tv/psxquest

As of now, my patreon is my primary source of income: www.patreon.com/mrenter
However, if you want to make a one-time donation, paypal is the best way to do that: www.paypal.me/mrenter

And I've just opened another revenue stream. Subscribestar. This one is specifically there to help with Growing Around, and it is what I will be using to help fund the series, whatever shape that it may be. So if you want to see more art like this: Growing Around - Summerway (Day) by MrEnter or this: Model Sheets - Niall by MrEnter or read scripts like this:
Growing Around - Society of the Treasure Trackers[This episode starts with April, Molly, and Sally walking through the forest. They are deep in the forest, so light hardly peers on through except small peaks and clearings from up above. The ambient sound of crickets and other insects create an ambient noise, punctuated by the steps of the girls. A main source of light is April’s earrings, which are made of cyan glowswticks. Sally is excited, but the other girls are skeptical]
Sally: Come’on girls, it’s just this way!
Molly: Sally, yeah know I told you not ta pull me away from work.
April: Weren’t you just telling me about a duodozen customers annoying you throughout the day?
Molly: Y-yeah, but—
Sally: Look, I promise you that it’s gonna be awesome
April: Well, where is it?
[Sally pushes away a bunch of leaves and it leads to a giant hollow log going through a bunch of rocks]
Molly: Sally, I ain’t goin’ through there. There’s probably ants or spiders or other creepy-crawlies
Sally:
, then
click on this link: www.subscribestar.com/growinga… (I'm still getting it up to snuff)


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And one more thing. I've opened up a Bitchute account: www.bitchute.com/profile/. I've even uploaded the Totally Busted review there, and I'll be working to get my other videos up there. It has direct links to individual donation sites and such. If all goes well, I think the best end result of all of this is to make the jump completely to another platform.

I have a strong feeling that I will be able to survive this, maybe even with minimal losses. It's definitely scary and nerve-wracking, but it's not like it's surprising and I don't feel trapped or anything like that. However, there are other people who aren't so fortunate. Plenty of people who have had their accounts just randomly deleted because of a rogue bot or employee. And many of them can't survive. It's reasons like that that I can't morally support YouTube. I've wanted to outgrow the platform for years now, and I'm getting the feeling that this might be the time where they've finally given me the push that I needed.

Stay tuned, because no one knows what's going to happen. Also, if you guys have any other words of wisdom or encouragement, I'd love to hear them.

So...does this mean this idiot might need to actually get a job now?
Depends on if his patreon money increases. He could also move to an alternate platform like Bitchute and do more livestreams for the equivalent to super chats. He is popular enough with special needs kids to get part of their allowance every week

This is one of the many reasons why I hate that website, completely inaccurate in every conceivable way.
Extremely common in screenwriting
No it isn’t. It’s not used at all in professional screenwriting because, as I have said before, stage direction is not the screenwriters job, a pause like that is usually decided by the actor, the director, or the editor. And lingo is a big no go in scripts because you can’t risk one of those parties not knowing the word. 90% of screenplays are written with a middle school vocabulary for that very reason.

In fact, I would say using TV tropes as a writing tool alone makes him irredeemably stupid.

The only common use of the word beat in writing that I personally know is in journalism, where a “beat” is your topic. Sports, theatre, music, politics, all beats.

I feel like he's going to turn to GoFundMe or Indiegogo or something like that and become completely dependent on that revenue. Also more rewards on the patreon that already exists.

He will more than likely promise to make daily content and different series on his channel. Maybe he'll think of a little project to promise if he gets enough funds for "Room, board, and tech equipment"

I can see him going down sort of a SpoonyOne path. Starts out as an angry "reviewer," uses patreon and youtube as a way to support himself, spends life online, promises to do more and more for money and then becomes stagnant. Obviously MrEnter has a different story and a different situation but usually when their money gets short they run to Patreon or GoFundMe instead of getting a part time job or doing something in real life. They overwhelm themselves by promising too many things that they don't actually want to fullfill to their fans.

It essentially becomes an actual job instead of something they like to do and they weren't prepared for it.

Edit: That is if he really can't get monetized again or decides to just drop youtube as a whole... which I don't think would be wise since it's the only reason a huge chunk of people discovered him, even if he can't get money from it it still gives him more notoriety and potential patreons who want to watch his content.

So, the adults (who have the minds of children) are the ones procreating and giving birth?
Enter has weird fetishes...

If it's true that he still lives with his grandparents then I'm not sure why he'd bother worrying about monetization or that dumb Patreon. In the long run, he's gonna have to get some type of employment.....unless he gets disability or something. But that's just my two cents. I'm not sure of his personal situation and I don't want to know since I kinda feel bad for him. For some reason, I don't think he's gonna do much productive in his life, and now the one thing he was somewhat okay with is not viable as a paycheck.

Damn I didn't realize he still lived with grandparents. Guess he really doesn't have to legit worry about paying a regular rent or mortgage. I think he probably worries because he likes to buy stuff he wants like videogames, books, movies etc. and they might not buy him that stuff because they're on a fixed income and already probably let him live there for cheap or nothing.

I partly feel bad because I think he's mentally very childlike and won't get to really experience life or accomplish anything, but also don't because he doesn't have to stress over making ends meet or work hard and is making money off of criticizing cartoons. He seems to think he's accomplishing a lot for writing those scripts though so I'm sure he's content with his situation.

He recently stated he lives by himself. And wherever his money goes, it certainly doesn't go toward his office. He did a video showing off his office a few months ago and he has a shitty prebuilt desktop with a small 4:3 monitor.

So Enter is Foxworth 2.0? That’s a creepy thought.
I’m kind of looking forward to Punished “Venom” Enter though. It has the potential for the greatest amount of cow actions we have ever seen from him. And just think of the downward spiral retrospectives if goes for a high score

Someone on his twitch stream asked: What would happen if you stayed demonitized on youtube? His answer: "What would be the reason for me to stay on youtube?" The way he said it sounded scummy to me, like he's only making these videos for the money and not out of a passion or interest in animation.

[/QUOTE]

Considering his views on animation I wouldn't be surprised if that's not far off mainly because Enter:
Believes Toy Based Cartoons saved animation
That the Dark Age of Animation was nothing but Scooby Doo Clones
When discussing Adult animation doesn't talk about Ralph Bakshi
That all MLP cartoons before MLP: Friendship is magic are horrible and inferior
Believes 90s Nickelodeon should not be considered a kid's channel because of the quality content.
Thinks every cartoon needs to have hidden depths/adult themes and any that are just goofy slapstick (TTG) should be taken off the air waves (Fun Fact: Enter has spread the hate of TTG to so many people that at one point there was a petition to have the TTG creators killed)

The thing is a lot of of these beliefs are commonplace among Millennial cartoon spergs and were around before Enter came around. Given how a lot of them were struck down by Viacom/Hasbro it wouldn't surprise me if Enter (who was involved in cartoons due to his love of MLP:Friendship is Magic) saw some of these videos and decided to ripoff them so he wouldn't have a job. It's highly suspicious a lot of his earlier videos were ripoffs of MosBros Studios Top 20 Worst Spongebob lists. To quote the Simpsons It really makes you think

He really doesn't care about animation, though. The only time I can remember him critiquing character design flaws or anything to do with the art side of cartoons is his Problem Solverz review, and even a half-blind chimp could tell you why that show looked ugly. You'd think someone who was really passionate about animation would pay attention to how each part of a cartoon fits together, not just how mean spirited the plot is.
