  1. Hi, wonderful article and had read all the comments as well. I was given my first strike last month for a tribute video I had made for a love one who passed away. I have emailed them right away and ask them nicely that they can contact me anytime if there is still any that they want me to remove so I can avoid the strike. This month they have taken down another video which was a compilation of charity works just like the other these videos were made in good faith and not even monetized. I didn’t even expect that they will be given a strike because if they only had just watched them, these are inspirational videos. The other videos they have taken down has been in my channel for years, lyric videos that has already copyright claims from another party and that the revenue goes to them. I had pleaded for them to retract, I was assured that if I delete the videos they will retract the strikes which I already did but afterwards they never did. I apologized for any mistakes made and even promised not to do it again but still never had the chance. I had this channel since 2009 and it’s been a part of me already, my kids videos were there since they were babies. I was just hoping for them to give me a chance which they never gave, now I feel helpless and sad. My channel got terminated last May 14 and I miss my community as every time I share with them inspirational quotes and motivations. Is there any chance I can still have it back without them retracting? Hope you could give me some insight, I feel sad and helpless. Appreciate it a lot, many thanks.

  3. Dear YouTube,
    I am extremely sorry that I might have violated some of YouTube’s community guidelines, that’s why my channel has been suspended. Would you please pardon me only this once and give me my channel back? If you do, I promise you that I will never violate any of YouTube’s guidelines/TOS again. You can even delete those videos that violated YouTube’s community guidelines.

    I have just one curiosity. If someone’s Google account has been suspended and that person suspects that the YouTube team member who has their account’s future in their hands is a real jerk inasmuch as the appeals keep getting rejected, would it do any good for that individual to mail or fax a letter to the C.E.O. of Google? Also, if that individual has a Google Adsense account under a separate account that is unassociated with the Google account that got suspended, does that individual run the danger of losing his or her Google Adsense account also?

    1. It would be really very difficult to contact the CEO of Google regarding this. Even if you can, the chances things will go in your favor are very slim. Nevertheless you can try contacting them. If a certain Google product of yours has been suspended, then your AdSense won’t be affected.

  6. my channel terminated 5 month ago because three communitty gaidlines strikes. but two strikes are in errer. so appealed many time more times( 30 times) but they keep suspension because they dont review these strike .please help me. what can i do

  7. I have used the format which you mentioned in appeal form. and i can’t believe that they reinstated my channel. it was suspended because of some community guideline strike. i can’t Thank You enough for this Sir.

    1. We can’t justify and give verdict that you were totally innocent, because we can no longer scrutinize your channel’s content and metadata. However all we can do is encourage you to keep appealing over and over. Because experts say that repeated appeals can actually get you your channel back. Be sure to use the appeal texts depicted in this article and the following:
      Also you should read the following article to the end to see whether you did any particular type of community guidelines violations described here:

    Unfortunately, if your channel has been removed due to copyright infringement, we are unable to process your appeal. Please visit the YouTube Copyright Center for more information: http://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/.

    1. This appeal method presented here works for channels that have been terminated due to community guidelines violations. You need to contact people who imposed copyright strikes on your channel and request them to withdraw copyright claims. Promise them to never do this again in the future, also offer them a little bit in monetary terms if you afford. Think yourself how you can possibly convince them. You can share your full story with us – how you got those strikes and what sort of content you had on your channel. If you write your story in article format, we shall publish it on our blog.

  12. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you just can do with some p.c. to pressure the message house a little bit, but other than that, that is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  13. magnificent points altogether, you simply gained a new reader. What would you suggest about your post that you made a few days ago? Any positive?

  14. I’m still learning from you, as I’m making my way to the top as well. I certainly enjoy reading all that is written on your site.Keep the posts coming. I enjoyed it!

  19. Very good and complete explanation.

    2 days ago, one of my channel has been disappeared from my account. I am not really sure if I did a violation or not.
    I did appeal once, and got immediate response (might be response from robot )

    It has been more than 36 hours after my first appeal.
    I still wait to make second appeal.

    I will follow your guide. Hope my channel reactivated. Thank’s a lot.


  20. There’s another factor which although might not help getting your channel back, it’s an issue that needs to be recognized and be aware of; YouTube has a practice that suggest Double Standards, favoritism and even hypocrisy, wait wait wait, don’t go fanatical on me, let me explain; I had a channel with over 1000 videos, 900 subs and 4.5 million views combined. I sometimes upload videos from the cc section and I found a couple of videos about breastfeeding which I shared and a few day later I had around 18k views, I presented the video opening the floor for discussion on the controversy whether it should be done in public or it would be inappropriate, well I got two Strikes for those videos labeling them sexually explicit and in violation of the terms of service which is fine if that were a fact which isn’t. Here’s the issue, the person I downloaded the video from still has the video up and running with over 5million views furthermore his channel has many very sexually explicit and suggestive videos all or most with millions of views. When my first appeal was rejected I brought up those concerns, the answer was a second Strike and a couple of days later permanent deletion of my account.

    I did respond bringing up the hypocrisy and double standard which probably didn’t help my possibility to get my channel back.

    Another example is PewDiepie; Take one of his videos he violate a bunch of terms of service on the form of foul language, inappropriate content, bloody material, every other word out of his mouth is an F bomb and yet he’s one of the top producers. Explain that!


  21. I wrote them alot and they keep saying same copy paste that they will keep account suspended however i’m continously writting it to them because rumors suggest people who appealed 20/30 times have gotten their accounts back. Untill now I’ve appealed them 12/15 time since 18th Jan when my account was been terminated.
