Well, with upwards of 7000 subscribers, hopefully they can soon recover the $200 or so invested in a Brybelly home blackjack set.
(I think I'm slipping. It took way too long to identify the cards, but they did match the plastics and at least one style of their layout. I'm curious where they got the peek contraption; they seem to be in short supply these days, and it is not a style I instantly recognize.)

Genius.
Note the peek device not in all her vids. Chalk that as another clue
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Set upgrades. Maybe they can be had from an online auctioneer it now site.

Probably another $40 to recoup.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Did they disable downvoting, or just decide to not publish the tally?
Not sure how I feel after adding a dozen views to their metrics over the past few days.

A disproportional number of public figures have been trending to hyperbolic boosterism for decades. Watch a TV chef; they're likely to expound on the virtues of this most amazing avocado or whatever. There was a guy who complained about restaurants trying to talk up "figs on a plate". Coffee shops are trying to sell "the experience", but usually their coffee sucks or you have to wait 20 minutes while the barista milks the goat out back so you can get the freshest most amazing froth atop your lungo mocha. Casinos are more worried about the luxurious decor than offering a decent game.

... so yeah, it mitigates the trolls hate-piling on some new content creator, because the decision makers need new content to drive ad views, and they want to boost traffic by boosting goodfeels rather than sour participation among the indiscriminate masses.

Complaints may be directed to the usual suspects.

yeah, meant not being able to see downvotes.
wastes my time seeing stupid or misleading videos.

but i get your point that youtube constantly needs new content creators.
i guess drawing in more suckers to view videos outweigh those that stop watching their videos (ie: me) because of their down voting decision

They don't make money off you not watching their videos.
Pretty sure the writing was on the wall once every serious channel added almost identical pleas:
"Click that like, and subscribe! It really helps us out. Also, be sure to check back often. I release new videos daily!"
May the cards fall in your favor.
