They replied. "Hi,
Thanks for contacting us. Recently, we announced that more creators on YouTube now have the opportunity to become partners. We made this change to provide more creators with access to programs and resources to help them be more successful on YouTube. You are now a YouTube partner if you successfully monetize at least one of your videos.
We recognize that custom thumbnails and banners are sought-after features, and we are working to make these and other features available to more partners over time as we have done with long uploads and monetization.
You can visit our Help Center to learn more about the Partner Program: http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?answer=2548877
Stay on top of all the latest partner news at the Creator Hub - http://www.youtube.com/yt/creators/ - as we’ll continue to release programs aimed at supporting you as a partner.
If you want to learn more about how to enable/disable videos for monetization, please visit our Help Center at http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=94522

The only thing they did was confirm that I do have partner status and also that banners will eventually be available to me. I didn't really want to remove my partnership but I was worried about Copy Right since I'm a Let's Player. Guess I'll leave all my vids set to disable monetizing.
