AdSense problems

On March 6, 2014, jacknjellify's AdSense account was suspended for an unknown reason. They sent YouTube two appeals, however they were both rejected. Since then, they have gained over 115 million views.

On June 15, 2016, jacknjellify revealed on Twitter that their AdSense account has been restored,[3] thus meaning that they can once again receive income from their videos, further guaranteeing that BFDIA 6 will be released. Also thanks to this, the show will hopefully be in its full production again, if not just a bit slower. jacknjellify also created a slideshow[4] for their thoughts about what caused the account's block in the first place.

A few hours later, jacknjellify, once again confirmed that their AdSense account is unbanned through a post on their Facebook account,[5] also including the said slideshow's link for the Facebook users. However, BFDIA 6 was never released, and BFDIA was officially cancelled.

King of the Web

jacknjellify once ran for King of the Web. Their goal was 12,500 votes and if it was reached, BFDI would be weekly instead of monthly. They said you could vote 10 times per day. Blocky was in the cameo and at the end, you could vote for one of these reasons:

  • A: Like BFDI
  • B: Like clean water
  • C: Like clicking on pink buttons.

The goal was never reached, so BFDI never became weekly.
