    Do you have any tips to avoid getting the accounts deleted?

    I see this message so far in half the accounts I tried, the accounts last maybe 1 or months...and then:

    "------- has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of our Community Guidelines."

    And it's NOT necessarily a copyright issue here... because when it matches the content Id, it notifies you and/or takes down the video, BUT NOT the account...

    It's something else triggering their automated flag system (or maybe competition flagging it?).

    anyway, something very strange happened in the last account, I was uploading some videos... they still had no tags nor cats, no description... and NOT VIEWS!! and suddenly, the account gets banned... It looks like their system has some kind of pattern that bans accounts at discretion when they consider it's spamming or something?

    these are NON-PVA...

    So does having a PVA youtube solves this problem??

    I've seen people on here saying verifying does not matter, and am going to try and see this for myself in a few days. My competition has been attacking me horribly lately because I was controlling niche search terms (eg, the top 2 or 3 results were videos on my accounts, no nudity, but that's what they were flagged for and removed.), so I'd love to know this too.

    On the Google help forums/boards/whatever, I see people mention that Partner accounts aren't subjected to this garbage, or that they possibly have a recourse (their appeals are actually read). The downside is, even if you have tons of subscribers and views, Youtube may strike against your account themselves if you apply! I tried this on one account and they claim the videos were not mine (I work for the company I was posting videos of). So the hard part is sticking around long enough to qualify for partnership, then actually GETTING it. A shame you can't call and get put under manual review.

    As to an automated banning system...if there is one, it sucks. Someone stole our clips and posted them stuffed with naughty keywords, watermarked with a different URL and no automated system had removed them. Luckily, flagging did, and it was instant, so you know there was no review.

    edit: it may be possible the account was banned because of your IP or e-mail? I've had some accounts that seemed to register but then were insta-banned before I even got to do anything.

    BB720, good info, maybe we can gather more info together to figure some things on youtube.

    I have more news. On one of the disabled accounts, when you navigate to the user page as a guest, you will see the message: "------- has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of our Community Guidelines."

    But, when I try to log-in with the user and pass, I get a message saying that to re-activate the account; i must provide a phone to verificate via sms. So, not all accounts that have that message are TERMINATED, like the message says... You can re-activate with phone SMS verification.

    So, That said, I think that the phone verification helps for that kind of bans... but not for the copyright.. Anyway, 90% of the accounts that got banned for me, have that message (and not copyright).. and in fact, copyright only disables some videos, but not the account in most cases.

    So, I agree with you that some idiots from the competition are probably flagging the videos... The strange thing is that in some accounts none of the vids get flagged and the account stay up for long time.. and the other half, they get banned...

    Maybe, the videos that have a lot of possitive ranking and a LOT of views, get stronger and stay longer, because they gain more reputation and it doesn't matter if some asshole flags it... But Im guessing here...

    Also, the other thing that sucks, is that if they disabled the youtube account, the GMAIL associated with it, gets banned too..

    Lets keep the brainstorming to try figure out how the system works.

    If anyone else has more info, don't hesistate to add it.

    No PVA youtube account doesn't mean that it won't be banned. They are just phone verified so more authentic and you will get some short of warnings from youtube before they ban it.

    How much do you have to wait before your warnings resets? If they ever do so.

    they don't. What we need to figure out is how to change the content ID.

    putting the same url to every account, makes you detected!!!
    so place 2 3 acc with the same url, then change it!!

    make sure u clear all browsers stuff,
    Amateur content deleted fast, and i think some videos get black-listed
    so the next time you try to upload the same, BOOOM!!!!
