YouTube will soon allow access to Community Posts for creators with at least 500 subscribers instead of 1,000.
YouTube is halving the current threshold of 1,000 subscribers for creators who want to unlock Community posts. Starting October 12, YouTube creators with at least 500 subscribers will be able to use the feature.
Community posts are coming to millions more channels!!
Starting October 12, 2021, we’re lowering the eligibility threshold for Community posts to channels with 500+ subscribers: https://t.co/66SEhZ33ML

The feature was designed to replace the Discussion tab, which will be officially removed from all channels on October 12.
Community posts are Facebook-like news or status updates from creators, allowing them to interact with their community using rich media, such as GIFs, polls, images, and videos. They can be found in a dedicated Community tab on the creator’s profile, as well as in the Home or Subscriptions tab.
YouTube is also working on bringing Community posts to channels with fewer than 500 subscribers. The relevant YouTube Help page reads: “For channels under 500 subscribers, we are working to bring Community posts to you in the future. Note: It may take up to 1 week to see the option to create Community posts after your channel passes 500 subscribers.”
