So… yeah! I had a massive malfunction earlier this week and inadvertently deleted my YouTube channel, and it is—according to the Googs—unrecoverable. sigh I blame sleep deprivation. Also stupidity. Long story.

Anyway, so I’ve spent the last day re-uploading the important stuff to a new channel (and feeling dumb about the less important stuff that we lost). But all our views (sigh) and our 1200-some subscribers (siiiiiiiigh) got zeroed out, of course. In order to get back to where we were sooner rather than later (and that means, of course, if you already were subscribed, you gotta "re-"subscribe to my (new) channel. :frowning:

ASK: Subscribe to Multiplex 10 on YouTube… AND post about the web series on Twitter or Facebook?
SHOW NAME: Multiplex 10
LINK: YouTube

You might write something like this:

Check out this awesome animated web series – @multiplex10 [or Multiplex 10 Cinemas on FB]! #supportindiefilm #webseries https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLAINgRLTj2Hex-K53nKofthmEIERWfcmI&v=mavtfL3CYvI

Thank you so much! :grimacing:
