it only took 5 years

Today I login to my YouTube account, check the settings to see if my copyright strike from 5 years ago is still there, and...

...the strike is finally gone. I originally had 2 strikes. One was removed a year (maybe 2 by now) ago, but that other one from 2007 just stuck there and would not go away.

There were 2 things I couldn't do with that strike there. The first is that I couldn't apply to be a partner, and the second that the ability to post "unlisted" videos isn't available to anyone with a strike. Otherwise I have a fully-loaded channel, meaning it's allowed for me to post videos over 15 minutes and I have the monetization option.

Originally I wanted a YouTube partnership for monetization, but I already have that and it's something that basically doesn't work very well because there are far too many restrictions. However, what I am interested in are YouTube Rentals. There are materials I can make that would work very well there.

But.. and you knew this was coming.. I've hit a snag.

The YouTube site states I must have approved monetized videos in order to apply to be a partner. Well, I do, yet the system still "thinks" I don't. Weird. I'm going to give the system a few days to play catch-up with my existing monetized videos, and hopefully that will cure that ill. If not, I'll have to dive into the dreaded YouTube support forums.

On the immediate plus side, I finally have the ability to post unlisted videos again. An unlisted video is for all intents and purposes semi-private. It's not publicly searchable on the YouTube site, nor is it private to where only certain people can view it. Unlisted is literally "whoever has the link can view the video" - and I do like having that option because there may be a few instances where I can use it. For example I could post Facebook-only videos that way via YouTube.

Anyway, it's nice that last strike is finally frickin' gone.
