I was thinking (randomly) earlier that I should make a list of youtube channels, that every cuber should subscribe to, example: memyselfandpi, thrawst, camcuber, etc. and have a little description about them. I'll do this if anyone wants to, but it doesn't seem as good of an idea as it did before.

It really does need to be the younger generation of cubers making more videos. Not very coincidentally, many cubers are ending up in college, many of them being in top colleges, and some are already in very tough high schools, so they start losing time to cube, let alone make videos. We need people VERY young so that they have time to develop in speedcubing and start making videos early.

I'm teaching a group of elementary youngsters myself. One of them look EXTRA promising. He's shown a high interest for learning, which is just what is needed in a good speedcuber. He and I are bound to be good friends too. Maybe I can get him interested in making videos. (I know I couldn't make videos without help. I'm off to college in the fall!) I'll update you guys if anything works out with that kid!

Maybe that's what we need! A generation of older cubers to teach the very young kids out there! I'm sure some of them'll be interested.

As far as I know, MeMyselfAndPi & Thrawst are still making videos. I am not subscribed to many cubers other than those two, redkb and camcuber.
I mean, it's difficult to hold up a channel about cubes nowadays since most of it has been done in the past few years, and by that I mean, tutorials, mods, and stuff like that.
All you can do (and you do pretty well yourself, camcuber) is review the brand new puzzles that are out, that way, you'll have enough content and you'll be original and up and coming.
Keep it up!

There are quite a few of cubers (like me) that are 13 and under that make lots of good videos, but aren't very popular. I think we are getting better though, since I have a little over 100 subs, and I know of some others that are also around there. The thing is that new cubers look at popular videos, which are almost always the older ones, which never gives the newer youtube cubers a chance to get popular from them.

EDIT: Oh, and I am just getting out of elementary this year. That'd be interesting to see how your "student" (I don't know any other name for him, sorry) turns out.

I haven't reached generic status yet!!
Have i reached generic?? I love making reviews so that people will be able to check out a cube BEFORE they get it to know weather it is good or bad. A bunvh of people enjoy this but im not out to please everyone. I do what i do because i really like it. I know you love being CRAZY and only others that like that watch you which is a select few. I know i have gotten more popular lately but who knows how far we will go

I have been getting a lot of messages lately having people applaud me for still being one of the few (if any) cubers making videos. I know that there are so many cubers in general making videos but I think that they are referring to my "generation" of cubers such as Pestvic, Monkeydude1313, MeMyselfandPi, thewestonian, etc. I'm just curious as to what you guys think? I am also kind of running out of ideas for videos because whenever I solve it is usually spontaneous and quick so I don't want to mount my tripod and get out the camera haha
there hundreds of cubers who still post videos and i think the reason why the cubers you stated stop posting as many videos is becuase they mainly did tutorials and the cube world no longer has a need for them as much as we did when cubing started. its almost normal to average sub 13 now. so that could be one possible reason why they dont put up videos

Cameron you should start another five awesome cubers channel (but with a different name of course) and hopefully that will make new popular youtube cubers, i think that will also motivate me to make more videos
