* ApprovalOfGod:
** Creator/MichaelRosen was originally very wary of poops made of him, as they were overtaking his own videos on the [=YouTube=] search page. However, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0axzt7krqt4 he grew to like them]].
** Creator/DaThings1 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=388Ct7aZhpU made a poop]] that featured WebVideo/EtikaWNetwork as one of the sources. Etika himself [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63nUrtn5TvY reacted to the video the next day]], and was relatively positive towards it. He also revealed that [[OneOfUs he's a fan of the genre, and even has nostalgia for it]].
** Marc Graue, who did the voice acting for ''VideoGame/HotelMario'', was well aware of the cult following the game had. He even [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36c6DbiSYl0 made an abridged version of the intro]], thus giving the poopers a whole new set of tools to work with.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Countless poops fall victim to this, either by the creator retiring, the original getting hit with a copyright claim, or the pooper just not wanting to keep it up anymore. Sometimes, they'll be archived by fellow fans, but this doesn't happen all the time, resulting in [[MissingEpisode quite a few poops becoming lost forever]]. Igiulamam, Squirrelous, [=CommanderGwonam=], Danielle Pluzsik, and Creator/{{Mark3611}} are some of the more popular ones.
* OldShame: In addition to the invoked examples of KeepCirculatingTheTapes, [[http://youchew.net/forum/index.php?/topic/116571-the-great-rape-debate-discuss-ear-rape-here/&page=1 there have been a few poopers]] that dislike the term "[[SensoryAbuse ear rape]]", considering it a remnant of the times when the community was immature. Several alternative names have been suggested.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Despite the poops falling under Fair Use, companies like Viacom see them as copyright infringement (some theorize they blatantly ignore Fair Use because it undermines their profits), and issue copyright strikes on poopers. These strikes are frequently frivolous, or even done using a third-party as a proxy so the company can't be held accountable. Prime targets include any Spongebob poops.
* RecursiveAdaptation: [=Radicalfaith360=] is known for his re-enactments of various poops. Many of his re-enactments have subsequently been turned into poops of their own.
** Creator/Cs188's comedy skits have been turned into poops, too.
* TheWikiRule: [[http://youtubepoop.wikia.com/wiki/YouTube_Poop_Wiki The YouTube Poop Wiki]].
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: A poop's creation almost always consists of plopping a source in to a video editor, and going from there. There's a few poopers who've stated they write out their jokes ahead of time, but it's a rarity.
