Reconsider the new rules regarding children/family videos on YouTube
After failing to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protect Act (COPPA), Youtube was made to pay a 170 million dollar fine; the largest COPPA fine in history. Due to these privacy violations, the company announced new rules and regulations regarding children's entertainment on their platform on September 4th, 2019. What does this mean? In the coming months, creators will be required to say if the content they create is made for kids. This will in turn, limit several features on the platform that was originally accessible by everyone. This includes no longer having personalized ads, no matter if an adult is watching the video or not. Personalized ads and monetization allow for many toy and family YouTubers to make it a full time job. Removing this feature will effectively leave many creators without a job. Other changes that will be implemented will lead to decreased creator/community interaction. Comments will not be allowed on videos along with likes/dislikes, the community tab, and live streaming. Creators should not be punished for Youtube's inability to comply with COPPA. If these changes go into affect, many online toy and gaming communities that thrived on Youtube including My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, Disney, and Roblox will no longer be able to exist. Youtube, please consider revising these changes. They will have several unintentional consequences that will effect lives and communities of many who have used your platform for years.

Fans Deserve a Markup Limit on Ticket Reselling
The price markup of ticket reselling should be limited and regulated. Tickets to any and all events are bought and resold at an extremely high markup rate that is frankly ridiculous when comparing it to the base price that the tickets were sold for at the time of the tickets release. My hope is that ticket re-sellers are regulated properly and forced to limit the markup at which their tickets are resold compared to their original price. High demand tickets that are originally priced at $100 (for example), should not be allowed to be resold at a over a 100%+ markup. Never mind the fact that some tickets sold at $100 dollars can be re-sold at upwards of $1000+ in some cases. That is insane and extremely unfair to those fans/individuals who got beat out by professional re-sellers who buy out countless tickets to high-demand events, just to re-sell them at an unbelievable markup. Artists and organizations specifically create verified codes for to try and limit the possibility of backdoor companies mass-buying tickets for the sole purpose of reselling - but unfortunately- it is hard for individual people to beat computer bots. Due to this, the least that can be done is a max markup limit or regulation on the reselling of tickets, preferably no more than a 100% markup should be allowed. This allows for the re-sellers to still make a profit, and those individuals who can't afford extremely overly-priced markup tickets, can still afford to buy those tickets when they are not too far off from their original price. It is clear we live in a capitalist society and profit is the only thing on the minds of these companies and corporations, but hopefully the individuals providing the money in their pockets can have a voice too.

Petition to Giant Food Stores
Save Haars Drive-In Movie Theater
Haar's drive-in movie theater has been around since 1953 and means so much to so many here in Central Pennsylvania. This is one of the few drive-in theaters in the state and even on the east coast. So many people have gotten to enjoy the classical fun of sitting in their cars or trucks and watching movies with friends and families. This is a historical place full of so many memories and fond times. But the land that they are on is owned by the Giant Food Stores which is adjacent to their property. They now want to sell the land for profit forcing Haar's out of business. We cannot allow this to happen if we lose this place we will all lose a little bit of history and something special. Please feel free to share this and pass it around we need to show Giant that Haars means more than just the property it is on. #HelpSaveHaars Please beware the donations on this page go directly to advertising and promoting the petition to more people. The money on this site does not go to Haar's.

Spotify - Bring Back The Android Home Screen Widget
Spotify removed the Android Home Screen widget and has marked the functionality as "Not Right Now" The home screen widget made it easy to resume the last played track/playlist with one step from the home screen. Now, if Spotify is closed, the user must open the app and resume playback after the entire app is opened. https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Android-Android-Widget/idi-p/4802473
Petition to University of Tennessee
Get Metallica to Play Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, TN
Recently, Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, TN hosted world renowned country singer Garth Brooks. According to WBIR Channel 10 in Knoxville, the show broke records becoming the largest stadium show in the southeast United States with over 84,846 in attendance, and the stadium wasn't completely filled. The stadium's official capacity is 102,455. I have created this petition to challenge that record and bring heavy metal band, Metallica, to the forefront. As one of the highest selling rock bands in the last 30+ years, they have been known to perform before crowds of over a million. I think bringing Metallica to East Tennessee would highlight a different genre, compete with other musical acts, and shed a positive light on East Tennessee. With their tour setup, I believe we can bring 90,000 attendees to Neyland Stadium and the Knoxville region which would in turn bring millions of dollars in revenue to the community and surrounding counties. With Metallica touring all of the major metal festivals in 2020, I believe 2020 or 2021 would be the ideal time to attempt to break the record currently held by Garth Brooks. However in general, the University of Tennessee should open Neyland Stadium to more touring acts and continue to attempt to break these records which in turn would be both a positive to both the University and the city of Knoxville.
