YouTube Rank Requirements & Applications

If you are a popular YouTuber with a large channel, you may be eligible for the YouTuber rank here at Hypixel. This rank comes with some benefits in order to make recording videos here on the network easier, such as our nickname feature in order to avoid players targeting you in games while you are trying to record and the [YOUTUBE] tag and a red name to stand out when you want to be seen.

You can find out our requirements for our YouTuber rank, and how to apply, below.



Requirements for YouTube Channels
Including YouTube Live Streamers


For any YouTube channels wishing to apply for the YT rank, your channel must meet the following requirements:

  • 30,000 or more subscribers for gaming channels with frequent new Minecraft content.
  • 100,000 or more subscribers for gaming channels with infrequent new Minecraft content.
  • A reasonable number of views per video (1000 or more views within a few days of release on all videos).
  • An active YouTube channel producing original gaming content regularly.
  • Have uploaded some Minecraft related videos (not necessarily Hypixel Network related).

We may also consider some smaller YouTube channels which are above 20,000 subscribers for another rank on the network, though we cannot give the YT rank to these channels. See the spoiler below for our reasoning on this.

If your YouTube channel meets these requirements, you can click the button below to submit an application for the YT rank on the Hypixel Network.

Please note that channels meeting these requirements are still not guaranteed a rank on the Hypixel Network. All ranks are decided on a case by case basis by the Hypixel administration team, and we may decline giving a rank for any reason. We will only give ranks to the owners of channels, who are producing regular content for the channel.


Applying for the YT rank based on your YouTube channel


Email

creators[at]hypixel.net


Please include both your in-game name and a link to (not just name of) your channel with your email. If you have a business contact address listed on your YouTube channel, please use this email if possible as this will allow us to handle your application more quickly.


This is not a general support email address, so please do not send ban appeals (unless specifically instructed), store support queries, server suggestions, etc. to this address.


Hypixel Support

http://support.hypixel.net/

You will need to register a Hypixel Support account.

Please use the Start a Conversation option and then select the YouTuber Application department. You will be asked to enter your in-game name and, if applicable, your Hypixel.net name as well as provide a link to your channel(s) (it's name alone is not enough).



Information for Smaller Channels with Under 30,000 Subscriber

While we cannot give the YT rank to channels with under 30,000 subscribers in order to restrict the demand for the rank (please see the reasoning in the Frequently Asked Questions), we can currently consider channels with more than 20,000 subscribers that produce regular gaming content for an alternate rank, such as VIP+ or MVP.

If your channel meets these requirements, please use the same application method listed above.



Requirements for Streamers excluding YouTube streamers

We may sometimes also give the rank to streamers on sites such as Twitch (YouTube streamers should see the above requirements), though this is at our discretion and will depend on a variety of other factors.

While we don't currently lay out full requirements for streamers on various sites, as what we look at from site to site does vary, we do ask for all of the following as a minimum:

  • Approximately 30,000 or more followers (or equivalent).
    This means default, non-paid tier followers (e.g. followers rather than subscribers on Twitch).
  • Approximately 50* concurrent viewers or more.
    This is your average simultaneous viewers on streams, not a one-time peak. * This is somewhat dependant on the streaming service, and may be slightly higher or lower for more or less popular sites.
  • An active and regular streaming schedule.
    Streaming on a regular and predictable (i.e. scheduled) basis, not on rare and unpredictable occasions. We have to review your streams when considering these ranks, so us being able to check your streams is critical.
  • Ideally, streaming Minecraft content on a frequent and regular basis.

If you choose to apply for the YT rank based on your Twitch channel, please remember to include your average concurrent viewership (you'll find this in your Twitch dashboard) and the times when you usually stream (including timezone) in your email. Please note that these applications may take longer as well as we do, in most cases, have to see several streams from yourself to verify these statistics and make a decision.


To apply for the YT rank based on your Twitch or other streaming channel (exc. YouTube), you have two options:

Note on our Network Rules and YouTubers

Almost all network rules still apply to YouTubers. Please make sure to read through our Network Rules thread before you play on the server. The YouTuber rank is likely to create a level of respect for you on our network, so please don't abuse it.

The only exception to these rules made for YouTubers is our rule on advertising social media. YouTubers are permitted to post links to their YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, etc. profiles. While this is allowed however, please don't abuse the privilege.



Frequently Asked Questions


You'll find a list of frequently asked questions and answers to them on our Creator Program (YOUTUBE Rank) Frequently Asked Questions page here.



Still Confused?

If you need any more assistance, a member of our staff team should be able to help. Either send them a message on the forums, email, or talk to them on the server. We will try our best to answer any questions and queries you bring to us as quickly as possible.
