My subscriber count suddenly dropped, Youtube's doing?
0
Okay, so i've been a creator for a while now. and 2 days ago i was on 430 subscribers.

i suddenly got shared to a big Facebook group, and lots of people helped out and subscribed to me, which in 2 days got me to 670 subscribers. 

However, all of a sudden, i check my subscriber count, and it dropped to 570. so losing 100 subscribers in very short time.  I know most of the people that subbed to me. and judging by my channel size, and the fact that i got no "hate" comments or dislikes, makes it very unlikely for me to have this change.

my live analytics still say i got 240+ subscribers in the past 2 days, which should mean i would be at 670. but my account says 570, and live sub counts also say this.  

Could this be YouTube having errors, or for some reason deleting subscribers?

According to that page, if it would be removing spam, i would get a message in YT studio. I didn't get any.
Also, i know the people. They're not spam accounts.

As for cleaning, losing 100 subs is 20% of my total, that seems excessive to me. that's the same as someone with 100.000 subs losing 20 thousand suddenly.  Inactive accounts wouldn't make sense to begin with, since i only broke 100 subs a few months ago..

The way it happened, it genuinely seems like either an error in YTs system, or they did remove the new people because it happened so quick they thought it was spam/sub4sub or whatever. In that case, how could i fight this? 

I'm waiting on my analytics to update, so i can see exactly when and why it happened. i'll update when i know.

It talks about the notify thing on the page you linked to me in the first comment. " - We've removed spam subscribers from your channel. You will see an alert in YouTube Studio if impacted. "

not paid attention? Wouldn't this be an automated system? Not paying attention, and removing large quantity at once because of it, would only be done by a human. Also, is being inactive (as a subscriber) for maybe 1 or 2 months too long? It couldn't have been much longer, because as i said i only have more than that amount since recent months.

Because some subscribers are fake. They subscribe you in order for you to subscribe them in return, and once you do your part, they will unsubscribe you. Just don’t subscribe in return not untill a week later after they subscribe you.
