    Hello everyone!

    As the title says how many flags does a video can take before the account is banned.
    I am making videos like fake generators, but after about 12hrs my video is flagged and my account is gone.
    I only use likes of vagex and ev for comments
    Do you think favorites and subscribers really help your video stays longer and can take a couple of flagged before getting banned?

    Thanks in advance!
    And sorry for my english hope you understand.

    nope, favorites and comments etc don't help against flags. If your video is against YouTube ToS, ~10 flags can be sufficient to take a video down. 3 videos == account suspension.

    Your account can be suspended from one video (if it's a fake generator). I personally believe that a new account & video (with spam keywords) will massively increase your chances of your video being taken down....even with a small amount of flags.

    I would say that new accounts and videos could be as little as 2 flags (as YouTube will detect that your title, keywords and description are related to spam/ scams).

    I believe that after 2 videos get taken down, the next one will ban your account.
