How do you want me to do my ytps collab so people can join? My previous attempts (qubo collab, famous pooper collab, etc) failed. What do I do now?

Make your ideas and rules unique, try to host interesting collabs, and host them on YouTube.

Also maybe post to this:

Host on youtube? How will it get noticed?

Just going to quote an old post of mine here from an older thread where someone asked the same question.

Unless you make a really typically overused source collab like SpongeBob, I don't think there really is a perfect formula to attract people to your collab. The best you can do is put your idea out there and see if people bite, cos you don't really know what people are going to latch onto. Thinking outside the norm, perhaps using ideas that have been rarely done or at all is a good idea, but otherwise just do whatever you want and see what happens.

I think a lot of people had doubts when Paperking announced the MGM collab, but damn if people didn't join that one and become one of the biggest collabs this year. It shows that you can't predict what kind of collabs will attract people to want to join them. 

It's a crapshoot, basically.

Build your audience and leave a somewhat big impression on the YTP community.

Truth is that people are reluctant to join collabs hosted by people they don't know or newcomers because there isn't that much trust in the host to make a well made collab.

People who join YouChew with none to little audience just to host collabs will find themselves having to abort the collabs they made because nobody is joining or not enough people are joining.

To build your audience, make more YTPs. Get good at making YTPs too which you will if you set your mind to it. It's not easy, but it will get you more entrants.

I hope you didnt join the community just to host collabs. Desperate people who wanted attention makes collabs right from the beginning of their YTP career and in my opinion, it's a dumb thing to do. Not only that, it also doesn't work most of the time.

So yeah, build your audience. It doesnt have to be as big as cs188's or other famous pooper but if you get an average of at least 200 views per video or an average of at least 10 likes per video, then I'd say you might be ready to finally host a successful collab.

My Johnny Test YTP Collab is successful because it's not a popular source to poop and my viewers and YTPers knows me enough that people might want to join my collab, so try to find a rarely pooped source (if you can), and as mapo said, build your audience.

I have gotten a lot of good advice. I may go into making ytps a lot more often than just the collab entries, and see what people think. While people will find out about me, feedback can be helpful as well. Hopefully this turns out great.
