Clickbait madness

Is there anything that can really be done with clickbait Urban exploring videos?
like not in the fact that the creator is lying or overexaggerating about something in the video but in general click baiters that create dangerous scenarios in the sake for clout and followers/ likes or the way they show entrances to some dangerous place that can lead someone injuring themselves or worse even death.

It's getting out of hand an really bugs the shit out of me

I mean, there's definitely very little you can do on your part. As we've seen with Max Power, these people are pretty stuck in their ways, and aren't willing to change even with legitimate criticism given to them. I'm a bit confused about your thread though, are you wanting to like, take down these videos?

I mean it’s kinda similar to the ethos of “don’t feed the troll. You can really only impact that which you have direct power over and in this situation that is only over yourself. So...don’t click the clickbait.

I imagine you could also write diatribes on the internet encouraging others to adopt your stance but good luck changing any minds out there.

But I wuv my troll chew toys

Best to concern yourself more with what -you- post especially as a basic member.
If you spot TOS violations in the vids, you can report them:

Anyone mucking with wildlife (that includes bats) are so on my bad side...




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

well im not to concern about max, and obviously you can't take them all down
but i recently started noticing a #urbexgonewrong trend and kinda makes me sick that these creators would make up scenarios in abandoned locations an have defended their stance on their videos saying its in the name of satire, but real people have been in real life situation where they have been attacked and chased, injured, even leading to their deaths while urban exploring, an on a side note what if young impressionable youths see these #urbexgonewrongvideos and think urban exploring is all excitement and that they're never gonna get hurt or attacked and decide to go the nearest abandoned house without preparation i started noticing that too as well young ten-year-old kids creating youtube accounts and vlogging at some abandoned house.

Honestly - I did this. Worksites...abandoned row homes...weird shacks I would find in the woods...looking back at some of the places I used to "play" when I was young it's downright shocking I'm still alive. The only difference is YouTube didn't exist to archive it all.

As we get older, we often become more and more risk averse. Don't try to save the world (unless that's your thing) - you'll exhaust yourself. Kids are remarkably resilient and often have to learn from their own, sometimes poor, choices.
