    I was invited to the biggest European YouTube fan event, the Videoday in Cologne/Germany. Really cool, more than 9.000 fans and most of the famous German YouTubers. I was probably the oldest of the creators, and certainly amongst the oldest 1% in the whole place...

    Full blown VIP access, so I could hang in the VIP lounge with great view of the arena, free snacks and drinks. I met several fans, and also some TV teams.

    Here is a picture with a nice couple that won tickets from me:

    I also met my YouTube support team (they work out of London and Ireland), which was really good.

    A fun day! Not a single slingshot on me, though... felt strange.

    That does sound fun.

    What does a YouTube support team do?

    They analyze your channel and give you suggestions how you can increase your views and subs. For example, they said I need to add more links to other videos into the annotations, and also that I should create playlists. Makes sense.

    They also solve issues for me, which happens all the time. Copyright issues, software bugs and so on.

    Last not least they invite me to events and pay for the food :)

    Sounds like you had a great time. :)
    If I got it right there was a live stream where you have aswered questions. I really wanted to see it, but sadly I forgot it.
    Is there any way to see it? Has someone recorded it? Thank you very much for every upcoming answer!
