The YouTube idea was motivated in large part by the idea that you'd be targeting people smart/thoughtful enough to watch a smart/thoughtful video, and then they'd get engaged enough by the video that they'd go to the trouble of registering and participating on the forum. I want good, long-term users, not anything that would even show up in a traffic graph.
Yeah no, it doesn't work like that anymore. Most, if not all crypto nerds have been to this forum,and have left it for obvious reasons. You don't have to start a darn youtube channel, but just clean up the forum to massive extents. Hire more mods, or do something that will actually reduce spam.

Most of crypto discussions have shifted to close door telegram groups where people try to do all sorts of manipulations in trading and discuss all tech among people they feel will understand easily.

The problem is that most posters who have left in the past have been here for bounties only; I don't think new users are actually flocking to this forum to learn things as use to be sometime back; cause there is no dearth of literature on BTC on various blogs; also not to mention the fact that a lot of people are judged and let's say abused racially or culturally on this forum; why would someone subject themselves to this; unless they are getting an incentive or are bold enuff to keep up with this.
