    I don’t like most Star Wars YouTube channels. The only one I still watch is Star Wars Explained. I used to watch Star Wars theory for his ridiculously fanfiction but since he doesn’t do it anymore I have lost interest

    I tend watch the more critical ones like Midnight's Edge, That Star Wars Girl, Thor Skywalker, HeelvsBabyFace. I used to watch Dash Star but he kinda went off the rails after TLJ which is understandable. SW Theory is great too.

    I think the vast majority of SW-centric YouTube content is pretty awful tbh.

    The sad thing is that many fans will cite the trends on youtube as how the public receives the films or what the mood of the fans is. The truth is that youtube content is just that. Content. Same goes for the comments. It's not really a measure of anything except youtube.

    I would think at least a couple visit The Cantina, no? I honestly have no idea. I'm not real in-the-know with Star Wars YT.

    What's annoying is that is what makes money, and YouTube doesn't give a blast. You can say anything you want to and YouTube won't care. However, they'll only care if you use ONE second of copywriten material. Then suddenly it's "oh my gawd channel strike! *sirens blaring*". Some blast YouTuber constantly posting lies and stiring up blast? A okay.

    It is actually worse than that, as because hate and controversy sells well, YouTube actively promote toxic content over balanced, well-informed, and warm-hearted content. Pretty grueling stuff, really.

    Yep. Some will publish harmful lies or even blatant benign lies just for the clicks and add revenue. What's worse is how many keep buying in despite repeatedly being proven false

    When people truly desire something, they'll cling to anything that keeps the hope alive. Even if that hope is for giant retcons, recasts, and overall reckonings.

    They want to be fed their own alternate truths. It's a scary thing

    That's such a major problem with our culture at large today, it's crazy how it even trickles down to something as mundane as Star Wars rumors.

    Yep. Star Wars was almost like a test run for much scarier things that were claimed to be stolen but were not as there is no evidence except for Star Wars it was the constant peddling of Kathy Kennedy being fired or something.

    There is one YouTuber I watch (not exclusively Star Wars related) who apologised for some of the hot takes he had made or repeated in earlier videos. He usually tries to remain constructive or positive as the motivation for his videos but he admitted that the sharp increase in clicks he gets when the video features a take down of some sorts means the difference between making a few bucks from his channel and being able to make a living out of it.

    So if that guy comes out and apologises for sprinkling relatively tiny amount of salt in his vids even though its his bread and butter, imagine how motivated by cash those YouTubers must be, when their content is almost all salt and rage and attracts many more views with it.

    Hate-mongerers: "Only the freshest lies! Come get it here! Fake outrage! Toxic content! Vile opinions! The lies you want to believe! Get it now! Half price off!"

    I have almost given up on SW content on Star Wars. I used to follow HelloGreedo as he seems like a pretty level dude, but I sort of lost interest in that, too. Actually, the only SW YouTube content I regularly follow is the Star Wars News Net's very own Resistance Broadcast; zero bs, only facts and clearly stated (non-vile) opinions and preferences, and great behind the scenes content with some of the industry's loveliest people. (And seriously, it is insane how few people watches their videos! They are lucky to get 1k views most of the time... So yeah, level and informed, no-bs & no-hype'splosion videos doesn't sell as well as obvious lie-bait and hate :( Go watch Resistance Broadcast NOW, peoploids! :D )

    Then they yell "#fireKathleenKennedy". So much for cancel culture being bad.

    Ok, so... I think perhaps we should all take a step back and not escalate this before things get ugly. Let's use the thread to tip fellow Cantina patrons about good/bad channels and perhaps we don't need to take it any further than that. (And I'm as guilty of indulging here as anyone, just sayin').

    Everything can be politicized, so... let's not :)

    I like Nathan P Butler's channel with his rundown of the ENTIRE library of Star Wars Home Video releases in the States. Plus notable releases made elsewhere. Books and comics too.

    It’s not bad when we do it! Some clickbait channel.

    I also love the ones that make just blatantly false claims that anyone reasonable person should be able to say nah that’s made up. But sadly we live in a world where a person can think anything is true if it fits their narrative.

    Sadly, there are a lot of dumb dumbs out there. Why do you think The Fandom Meance even exists in the first place?
