Good thing I had the foresight to download that episode before this happened.I just checked my e-mail right now, and....oh, boy....this is seriously not good.
Fourteen episodes have been taken down today, including the season 30 premiere (Alan's debut) and the season 29 finale.
This was my exact attitude when I received my first strike from SW: I decided it wasn't worth risking further strikes and the possibility of losing my channel. At the same time, however, I gave people ample opportunity to download and save the SST vids I posted before I completely removed them - I think I gave everybody a good couple of weeks, if not a month or so . . . but a majority of them didn't heed the advice, hence why I still get bombarded with the usual begs and pleads to reupload them, or upload them somewhere else like Dailymotion or Vimeo. Sorry, you had your chance. Appears Rohail is the only one who took it to heart, because he recently reuploaded the hurricane episodes I originally uploaded.If SW doesn't want specific material of theirs to be on YouTube and chooses to take them down, then yes, you should respect their decision.
As for my affected videos, eh, it was fun while it lasted. Time to move on.
This is why I spent the past weekend going through my favorites and downloading anything I favorited that wasn't officially uploaded by SW, including a number of full episodes uploaded by you, Shane, Sesame Maniac, and whatever individual clips and inserts people like LittleJerry, sawing14s, Nanto, Tiny Dancer, and whoever else.
Shame it's come to this, but not a whole lot else we can do about it.
