  1. This article is indeed helpful. My account was terminated yesterday for the “spam and deceptive misleading content” reason. The ‘”spamming tags” thing, I have made all my metadata simple. I use only one tag, sometimes just two in the tags line, that’s it. My videos are titled properly and my description matches with my videos as well. I’ve been in good standing for years now. I have never scammed anyone. My videos were literally about video games I’ve played–and I uploaded them correctly. My last two videos were about Smash Bros. Ultimate replays and my most watched video was a small tutorial on how to solve a puzzle from Dream Team.

    I never got “three strikes and you’re out”; it was just straight terminated. I use YouTube often for listening to music, watching funny animations from my favorite animators, and making funny comments that relate to the videos I’m watching. I don’t monetize because I don’t need it.

    I’m generally humble and respectful to the community and this is my reward. I honestly don’t get it. Even if the reason is a reason, it’s still a ridiculous one and they should have just sent me an email with strikes so that I could amend my mistakes before just cutting me off completely. This whole thing has uprooted my faith in YouTube. I’ve sent my appeal and I don’t have high hopes they’ll restore my account for my “offense”, so I’m looking into finding a Trusted Flagger to help me.

    Thank you for this article, it gives me some hope.

  2. I have never uploaded a video. I use Youtube to save videos for myself. I rarely make comments and have never written any offensive ones. So yes, I was suspended for no reason. After my appeal, they replied “We have decided to keep your account suspended based on our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service.” Which one of the guidelines did I violate?! How do I get my channel back?!

  3. My youtube acct was suspended almost as soon as I joined. I had no strikes. I had no warning. It was just disabled. When I appealed they said they were keeping the acct suspended. Why? I had no uploads at all. I did not post anything offensive, nothing racist, nothing sexist. I got cranky with one person but she had insulted me first. Is it really that easy to lose your account forever? That isn’t normal anywhere else on the internet. Most websites you have to do something serious and usually a lot of it. There is no real appeal. They never gave me any reason. Just a link to Community Standards. I read those more than once. I did nothing that the Community Standards says not to do.

    I see racist comments, cursing, creeping, I see videos all over youtube that are copyright content. Yet those are still there? They even deleted every single one of my comments.

    Does this make sense to anyone because it doesn’t to me?

  4. It is a very helpful and concise article that I believe many people who are frequent to YouTube’s site and defiantly those who post and share videos should read.

  5. Thank you for this article.
    My You Tube account was suspended after what I believe I was involved in a heated debate in a comment section and harrased by three different users and reported their behavior multiple times due to the foul language . I completed their appeal and explained this incident and received a notice within 24 hours a noticed that my account was evaluated and did not violate their policies. I was so relieved. I learned a valuable lesson .when you are being harrased delete your comments and just block people and it’s not necessary to justify yourself to strangers

      1. Thank you ,It was relieving to know I wasn’t blamed or punished for others’ harrassing language towards me solely based on I did not share their same views

  6. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your blog. It appears as though some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Cheers

    1. I do not see a reason for that, ’cause I browse my site quite often from various devices without logged in. I believe it gotta be a problem just with your device.

  8. My account was also terminated and i completely don’t know why.
    No warnings, no notification, just nuked.
    No malicious content, no harrasement, good tagging. Just private gamming channel since 2006.
    Just ‘suspended’ and no answer.

  9. It’s a glitch everybody is now getting their channel terminated for no reason. I never heard that you can’t post more than two videos per day, they are just making stuff up, it’s s glitch and Youtube knows it.

  10. My friend used to post coding(Java/C#) videos on youtube and his channel got deleted because of this. He used to upload 3-4 videos every friday and tuesday.
    He even had 25k subscribers. He got his channel by appealing multiple times after i told him about the appeal process but his channel was shut for 45 days which a pretty long time. He lost approximately $1500 which is a good amount of money in India. The worst part is that you have to enter the email of the google plus page of your channel on the appeal form even though it is not mentioned anywhere. Most people just enter their gmail address which doesn’t help.
    I have seen people posting 3-4 videos of actual copyrighted material everyday and their channels are doing fine.
    This is why i am scared of starting a Youtube channel myself. so much hard work down the drain.

  11. Thats not make sense
    I know all that things and put the right tags and names and description
