How many times can one triumphantly return to YouTube? No matter. CardGamesFTW is back! Little Kuriboh’s main YouTube account was restored earlier this afternoon after being suspended from the massive video website for a little more than two weeks. This is roughly the same turnaround as the last time his account was deleted and revived during the winter holiday season.

And just like that last time, CardGamesFTW has returned a few cards short of a full deck, with some videos still missing and unavailable. Heck, some of the videos were never even brought back after that previous deletion before the account ended up being terminated again. All of the videos that were yanked received a copyright claim from — you guessed it — Nihon Ad Systems, Inc. LK is mindful of the issue and is “gradually work[ing] to restore it fully.”

Well, there’s really not much to say this time around that hasn’t already been said. Here’s to hoping CardGamesFTW doesn’t get banned again! But you know what? Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged series has never been about a single YouTube channel anyway. YGOTAS persisted in the past when LK had lost his original channel, and it will continue to do so, even if, Egyptian Gods forbid, CardGamesFTW is struck down again. LK and YGOTAS will live on, with or without YouTube.

You’ll never stop the Abridged!
First it was a fan flick, now it’s so fantastic.
You’ll never stop the Abridged!
LK writes a catchphrase, starts another new craze…

CardGamesFTW Terminated from YouTube… Again

  1. Do they remove the so-called ‘strikes’, when they rehabilitate his channel? How does this work?
    I wouldn’t push this youtube-thing if I was him :)
    It simply doesn’t worth it. It’s better from Blip because (way) more people use it, and it’s a good advertising for him, but this can be annoying (I was searching for a better word, but I’m not good with words:)

  2. In this situation, LK had to file a counter-notification. That help page can explain it much better than I can.
    Last November, when his videos were blocked by YouTube’s Content ID System, he had to file a video ID dispute. That’s a different process.
    These problems definitely annoy LK, no doubt about it. If I were in his shoes and the account were terminated again, I would just say forget about it. Blip.tv has most of the features YouTube has and more. You’re right that YouTube is more popular than Blip.tv (and everything else for that matter), but you really have to weigh the costs and benefits of using it and the time spent fighting these uphill battles. LK’s a staunch guy though. I think he’ll keep fighting.

  3. Thanks.
    It doesn’t say anything about the strikes, but I suppose they get removed.
    Youtube is very important, but I don’t know how long can this continue.
    I just can’t wait for the 31st, when the new episode comes…
    I don’t think LK knows how we appreciate his work.
    He might have an idea, but I just found out something:the abridged series has been translated to Hungarian by an enthusiastic guy (dubbed, not subbed). The original is still better, but that’s something! That’s what I call fandom.

  4. I’m sure LK has some idea how much we appreciate his work — those anime convention halls aren’t getting jam-packed for nothing! ;D
