Milestone -- 1000 Videos On My YouTube Channel...!!!
« on: February 01, 2020, 10:20:19 pm »
Here is a video of my friend Norm Jones' 1895 Mery Explosive Engine Model.
I made this video in 2015 but did not finish editing and publishing it.

So here it is today as my 1000th video on YouTube.
It may not mean much to YouTube but it feels like a milestone reached.

I admit when I saw that I had 998 of them, I scoured through some old files looking for a couple more previously filmed so I could make 1000 a little quicker.
This would have happened a lot sooner but some scammer a few years back convinced youtube to let him keep a lot of my videos that he downloaded and then uploaded as his own. So I lost a pile of them back then.

Congratulations Gil!

That’s quite an achievement.

1 video posted per week is 52 per year. So, 9-10 years to get to a thousand videos posted.

Wow!

Congrats Gil!!! Most everyone in the hobby would recognize your voice, as everyone has seen your videos  ;D  There's been many times at threshing shows where there is a Cretors or similar, two guys will be talking about seeing one on the internet and I hear, "You mean that Redryder guy?" and that's all the way over here in MN... your famous Gil   ;)

Wow Gil ..... that's sure one heck of a lot of interest and entertainment you have provided there. I can't even imagine !

Perhaps I should try catching up with you ..... only 977 to go .... or something about like that. Problem is, mine lack any quality of actual interest, and are generally technically abysmal, whereas yours are very much the exact opposite, well produced and very informative.

Congratulations .... and a great big THANK YOU !!!

So true Raphael. But, at least his subscribers are actually interested in the content. 🤠

I believe you're both right. Case in point here....
I uploaded 2 non-engine related videos Dec 29th and Jan 1st.
Both are the least viewed of all uploaded and published more than 3 days ago.
My subscribers do know what they want!


These two:
