    I was thinking about this while looking in movies / media, but it strikes me as weird that even though YouTube is such a big part of online culture and online media, we don’t have a subsection for it. (Or even that many posts about it but I’ll get to that)

    Basically my idea is that we have a YouTube subsection within one of the other sections (like within the media section), and within that section you’d talk about specific YouTubers, their newest uploads etc.

    For example right now I’m pretty much obsessed with this YouTuber SailorJ ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJOzFn6EU1wxQlEhbor14RA/featured?disable_polymer=1 ) so I’d make a thread about her with something like “SailorJ is an up and coming YouTuber who posts videos poking fun at Makeup YouTubers and is best known for videos such as ‘how to be a hufflepuff’, ‘how to be a Pisces’...” and so on. I know we can put individual videos in the spam zone, but I imagine these threads like say, the RWBY thread where people were always sorta updating it with new news and info about most recent “episodes” etc.

    There are also a lot of YouTube content that is serialized to an extent as if they were “episodes”, like Roosterteeth podcasts and letsplays and whatnot.

    The only thing is though I don’t know if anyone actually wants this. A lot of KHV members are a little older and may have grown out of their YouTuber obsessed phase lol, so that’s why I’m asking.

    The question is how many legit YouTube threads do we have? If it's only, say, 50, then a sub-section would be pointless when those threads are fine in either Discussion or Technology.

    Yeah that’s pretty much what I’m wondering. Technology seems like a weird place to put them though because it would be about like... people, if that makes sense. Discussion could work but I’ve always seen the discussion section as for more “serious stuff”. Maybe a YouTube prefix for the media section would work better instead of an entire section?

    Agreed. I think a YouTube prefix would be more applicable than giving it it's own section. As Amaury stated, there aren't really all that many discussion regarding YouTube as a focus topic. My vote would be for a 'YouTube' prefix in the media section. If popularity increases and an overwhelming number of conversations regarding YouTube start popping up, perhaps then more discussion could be put forth on the matter of giving it its own sub-section.

    I agree with having a Prefix in the Media subsection, and will see what I can do about having it implemented when I can. :)

    As some of you already know, we're in the process of revamping our Youtube, so perhaps in the future, a subsection might be in order, but we definitely don't need one yet. Thanks for the suggestion, though, we'll see what the future holds! In the meantime, I'll try to get a prefix for you, it just might take a little while. :)

    EDIT: Nevermind. Libre is an awesome person and he's added the prefix in the Movies & Media section for you now. ^.^
