    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    The look on Tamawashi's face as he bungled through the explanation, was a picture. Wish I had got a screenshot of it...

    Hey Wakatake, I'll have Chiyonoumi (again) for day 11, thanks.

    Rikishi Status Haru 2019 - Day 11 Withdraw

    Thought so. Managed to get round the app restrictions and get a screenshot (sorry, Kyokai) so I guess it's official (?)

    Rikishi Status Haru 2019 - Day 11 Withdraw

    Has SdW92 Roman gone kyujo? The kyokai app is showing his scheduled opponent for day 9, Chura, has picked up a fusen-sho (I can't take screenshots, the app doesn't allow, apparently) and then there's this post....

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Aminishiki talks about his budding collection of white stars, and despite the flesh being weak, it seems the spirit is still willing. Regarding his 5th win he said " I feel like it's been a long time" (since he had a winning streak) " I have to remember this feeling well, as I may not be able to keep this sumo up for long" he did add that he intended "not to quit yet" https://news.biglobe.ne.jp/sports/0318/spn_190318_9361480092.html

    Hi Wakatake, since there is no day 9 form so far and I won't be back online till tomorrow morning UK time, I'll just post my pick here... Day 9 I'll go for Chiyonoumi. Back up picks remain the same. Thanks.

    I'd find this laughable if something similar hadn't happened to a friend of mine. Same thing too with the hyoshi-gi clappers. It's an obvious symptom of the imperfect system YouTube/Google uses. As well as touchy algorithms, they claim to cast a human eye (eventually) over any content ID dispute... "Even though Content ID claims are disputed less than 1% of the time, we agree that this process could be better. Making sure our Content ID tools are being used properly is deeply important to us, so we’ve built a dedicated team to monitor this. Using a combination of algorithms and manual review, this team has resolved millions of invalid claims in the last year alone, and acted on millions more before they impacted creators. The team also restricts feature access and even terminates a partner’s access to Content ID tools if we find they are repeatedly abusing these tools." https://youtube-creators.googleblog.com/2016/04/improving-content-id-for-creators.html?m=1 Pie in the sky stuff. Obviously the whole process is completely automated, as you say...and forces the channels creator to abandon any further legal defense on their part. Sort of the like the internet equivalent of banging one's head up a brick wall. But checkmate for the claimant of the infringement notice. Checking Miselet's channel link brings up this message... 'This account has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted.' https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCl21R2SHvvjYqvsuuXxeNAg There's a mention of a third party on the notice. Is this the standard message that everyone see's after a channels takedown via a content ID claim, or is the mention of a third party specific to Miselet's case? Everyone knows where you get your footage from, Kinta. Your always open and honest both here and on your YouTube channel. What I don't get is why you and Asashosakari were both targeted and hit with the same warning, despite you never using one iota of Abema footage and Asashosakari being forced to remove a specific clip from 2018, despite having several other uploads from abema. This whole thing is too strange if you ask me...

    Now that is strange. Normally a content ID claim can be done in conjunction with a 3rd party etc, and it's usually for standard things like image rights, music, logos, advertising ect. I wonder if there was a 3rd party involved with the claim?...(but it looks unlikely given that abema's name is all over it) Scary. Makes me think someone is watching the forum at times.... paranoid mode of thought, I know...

    Just theorising here, but could it be the background music? Abema stopped using the music in the lower division bouts from late last year, but before that they used it (and the commentators) on every division they broadcast. I noticed that Miselet have been uploading videos a lot later from day 4, as Akinomaki stated. Last night I was able to rewatch Juryo with no problem. However, Juryo doesn't feature music or commentary. Edit: did a search and can't find anything on 'title labeling'...just comes up the regular YouTube copyright spiel...

    Me too, he seemed to open up a lot more. There were genuine smiles from him, and almost glint in his eyes. I think, for the first time in a long while, Kise is finally at peace. It's good to see.

    Despite his phenomenal rise up the banzuke, 'ironman' Hattorizakura is, once again, winless. Tomorrow he faces equally winless Toya... will we see the 'awakening' continue? Will we see the blossom in full bloom???.. ...I can hardly wait

    Yeah, couldn't agree more. My personal favourite is the trick of bending over low to pull out the (remaining) sagari that doubles up as a begrudged bow ...
