BE VERY CAREFUL!! Consult with your parents for two reasons, the first is a little matter of copyright property rights now, which you parents actually control for you as your guardians at law, the second is close, because the income from them will be taxed to your parents, and they should not be caught by a bad surprise when the IRS and New York State hit them for un reported taxes. If the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is not true. The old folks may be a nuisance right now, but they can help you see that you get money, and do not lose it, or a bunch of other things.

Otherwise, congratulations, hope to see you name in lights some day!!

Just to be on the safe side, check that you are on the real YouTube page.

Many scams go to great lengths to mimic the look and appearance of well-known sites to steal login details (once you "login" on the fake site, your account is compromised). Also, double-check (and triple-check) the address showing up on your browser.

Aside from that, it is quite possible that the email is indeed legitimate. I have just checked on my youtube account (I have no videos on it, just use it to comment, rate, and flag stuff), and there is a direct link there to my AdSense account (which I use for some of my websites). And I have been seeing google ads on youtube videos for a while, so the feature is quite real.

In any case, the best way to stay safe is to type the youtube address manually on a new browser window/tab and go on from there: this avoids the risk of following a malicious link to some scam site. If you already followed some link from the e-mail, and you didn't verify that you were indeed on the real site while logging in, this may be a good time to update your passwords.

Also, pay attention to Vicky's advise: you need a legal tutor (your parents) to act on your behalf to engage in a commercial activity, and the earnings you make through AdSense are subject to taxes (which your tutor has to manage).

Last, but not least, don't expect to get rich out of a couple of videos: the money you can earn through AdSense is tightly related to the traffic your videos and/or sites have: if your videos get a lot of viewers, you'll get a lot of ad prints and clicks and hence a lot of money; but if they are low-traffic they will also turn out to be low-profit (still, low-profit can often be better than no profit).

      Well, if dad is paying for it, I guess he has some say so on the issue, but little does he know how fun some Enby's can be.  If he gets to know a few -------- but I guess he won't.  His loss entirely.  I feel bad, but for now you are having the right attitude about it.

      Beautiful photo. In a couple of weeks, it should be sunny like that once the June gloom is gone.

      Naturally, I've been wondering whether there are any entries in the 63 pages (currently) of this thread that involve a Rubber Chicken.   Search claims that to not be the case, but I have my doubts, given the stealthiness of Rubber Chickens, and how friends have surprised me with them! 🙂   Astrid

      (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related)   So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited.   Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people".   I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions.   Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary.  I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so.  Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!

      In my experience you find good people when you are happy confident and okay being alone. When you are like that it’s like you share the best of yourself. You give off an awesome vibe and people like that. That’s when I’ve always met my long relationships.    Being trans is unfortunately something with negative connotations. So are lots of things. But people find partners that love them for who they are. There are no limiting factors. And you never know who that person could be. So all anyone can do is live. Be yourself and be your best. And not worry about it. I’d hate to be sad about it forever just waiting. I’d just go live life. And be me.

      Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...

      Wonderful.  I'm glad you enjoyed the experience.

      Litha (midsummer, summer solstice) approaches. This Saturday, the sun will be at its strongest, longest day.    The full moon Esbat is now, tonight.    Which means that the representative full masculine power of God (summer solstice)and the representative full feminine power of God (Full  moon)  will be the closest they come together astronomically and astrologically this year.   My mind has moved in interesting directions over the past few days.  The goddess calls...   Will attend a Litha Fire festival this weekend to celebrate.

      By all means stop looking, but do not put words into other people's mouths. I've heard all 4 of those lines too, along with the classic, "it would feel weird being more than friends with you" and a few others.  Just enjoy being yourself, if you do not think you are worth the time why should anyone else? (a lesson I have recently learnt/still learning).   I'd bet you have plenty of good qualities, heck get some cats if you have really given up on people - but if you are strong enough to transition then you are strong enough to find more to look forward in your life than just skipping to the end of the book.  
    • Raven1981
      I am with you DeeDee.  Even before transitioning, I was always put into the friend zone.  Then I just hated these famous lines I was told.   1. Your too much of a friend to be a relationship person.   2. You have just not found the right person yet.   3. There is plenty of fish in the sea.   4, You dont have to date, cause your not the dating type of person.   All these lines I just hate with a passion.  They are all just the nice way of saying get away your ugly and I dont like you.   That's why I am just giving up and will just die lonely and alone
