    They will not be deleted from YouTube if they are rejected. They will just be deleted from the YouTube direct site to which they were directed. They will still be on Youtube among your own submissions.

    Fellow GTUG members. I have been a member of GTUG for several years.

    Please help fund our Open Search Engine project on IndieGoGo

    We built it on the Apache/Yahoo reverse engineered BigTable/GWT stack with DataNucleus and our goal is to revolutionize the web by ranking by viewed content rather than hyperlink factoring, and creating consistent objects out of web dox via the FB OpenGraph spec.
