Monetization rules changed – You now need 4000 watch hours & 1000 subs (Jan, 2018)

Just saw the monetization rules have changed. Check out your monetization page, mine looks like this. (My channel reached 10k views in Nov, 2017 and has been stuck in review since then. Now they tell me that I need at least 4,000 watch hours in the previous 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. Especially the subs is quite hard to get tbh. I can see many people bying fake subs now (good training for the google algo though ^^ )
