    Hey. I'm going to vent about this problem that keeps happening to me. Recently, I started a few channels and uploaded some videos I thought were interesting. One channel would host fights and crazy content, and 2 other channels hosted mixtapes and songs from unsigned artists. I found out a few days ago that all of them got terminated and deleted because of "spam" and "Community Guideline violations." I'm sorry, but what in the ENTIRE f**k?! I was never spamming on YouTube, the content wasn't misleading, and I didn't break any rules. All that hard work I put into f**king creating the videos and constructing a new brand has gone to waste. It's bad enough that one of my older channels is suspended, but not terminated, over something I did not even do. With the older channel, I used to make money on YouTube and be able to host decent content, but now I cannot. At this point, I'll never be successful on YouTube. It never used to be this difficult to maintain your channels until now. I don't know if I'm being flagged by lowlife trolls or YouTube is being a dick. Seriously, f**k this s**t. I am beyond pissed.

    I posted this exact same opening post on the YouTube sub-Reddit a few days ago and the mods removed it from the public with the quickness. Like HELLO! I'm trying to both honestly and bluntly bring more awareness to a known and recurring issue, but I suppose those Redditors low-key want to continue putting up with this crock of s**t and listen to someone big and afraid like Markiplier over small users like me. Don't get me wrong, it took some testes for Markiplier to speak out and I'm glad he did, but if you watch his recent "YouTube is changing" video, you can tell he's kind of scared of completely spilling over the beans and exposing YouTube since it could cost him his lifetime dream. Also, many before him have already spoken about this. There is so much f**king bulls**t and inequality happening on YouTube that I literally don't even know where to start.

    Let me put it like this:

    • You have companies and individuals falsely claiming copyrights on videos for money and power.
    • Several bigger YouTube channels are falsely reporting their opponents and competitors, getting them terminated to stay in power and maintain influence.
    • Channels like TeamFourStar get terminated, but then reinstated due to their massive fanbase and outrage. It's great that they're back, but what about the other countless channels that were never revived?
    • YouTube plays the favoritism game every day. If YouTube feels you are not making them enough money or that your content isn't good enough, they'll do their best to either stop promoting you or get rid of you at anytime. Remember, you are an at-will employee and replaceable. That's how the game works.
    • You can put so much effort into a video and get only 500 views a year. A screaming profane let's player who yells countless expletives into a mic while playing video games can get at least 1 million views a day.
    • Your video can taken down because of inappropriate content or copyrighted material. Another person's video can have the same exact content and material as yours did and theirs still stays up. Why?
    • There's plenty of spam, scam, illegal, and deceptive content on YouTube. Why delete a typical video over others that actually violate YouTube policy?
    • YouTube claims to understand what fair use is, but their actions prove otherwise because they enslaved themselves to WMG, UMG, and other corporate meatheads.
    • Let's say an artist named HJ owns rights to a song and someone else uploads it on their channel. Instead of HJ claiming copyrights to the video, f**king IFPI pretends to own it & YouTube takes down your video.
    • Someone or some company could actually own the song a video and want it removed or monetized by them, but YouTube sometimes tells them, "Nope, sorry, we are siding with Pewdiepie because he's Pewdiepie and you are not important."
    • You have users who click-bomb or falsely flag your video due to their hateful, disliking, idiotic, jealous, mob-mentality, and/or trolling ways. If you don't like a video, just thumb it down idiots!
    • YouTube makes it very difficult to promote your channel. Even if you search for videos and channels on YouTube, the results won't always be successful.
      • Remember when it was easy to find the most recent videos, the most subscribed channel, the most viewed videos, the lowest-rated videos, and any of the small channels on YouTube? When you could actually attach your video or video response to a popular video, receive honors and awards for your videos, PM people, customize your channel page, and have some sort of YouTube community despite any *sshole or troll who got in our way? Well that's long gone now. I like that Google helped numerous people make money with YouTube, but money concept of it all is slowly ruining what once was. Why can't we have the best user interface and navigation, the best copyright claim system, the best partnership program, the best customization and layouts, and the best way to promote and broadcast ourselves? Google can do everything else, but not this. Why? Many of us are doing our part to complain and provide you feedback and, hell, even some solutions. Why can't you do yours?
    • Any time you go onto YouTube anymore, you're bombarded with ads, The Ellen Show, any popular channel, big Let's Players, popular tiresome reaction and prank videos, stupid current memes, Vine compilations, Donald Trump, VEVO, Adele, trailers, celebrities and public figures, new episode clips from Late Night shows, attention whores, viral videos of s**t like cats and homeless people, top trending stupidity, tabloid horses**t, and the same content over and over again. Of course there's AdBlock to help with the ads. However, not everyone wants to watch this stuff all of the time. They say YouTube has billions of videos, but I keep seeing the same 1% of that amount being advertised. Again, why?
    • Most YouTubers are idiots and worship big channels and allow them to get away with almost anything. If you are a small YouTube content creator, you are subject to more hate and dislike since you are a nobody.
      • Example 1: TMZ, Phillip DeFranco, and some popular, beautiful b**ch can post both misleading titles and thumbnails. Either nobody bats an eye, no one cares, or people notice and excuse them because hey, they are just so awesome and that cute girl vlogger has a nice pair of DD cups....
      • Example 2: If you're not pretty or interesting enough, try doing the exact same thing as a small YouTube creator, and then you'll often have angry users, hateful users, massive dislikes, flagged video(s), and maybe a terminated channel.
      • Example 3: YouTube won't often touch big channels because hey, they're popular, interesting, and making us money!
    • Many of the popular channels steal or take other people's content, monetize it, and they often get away with it because YouTube heavily benefits from all the ad revenue.
    • YouTubers seem angrier and more hateful than yesteryear. Yes, there were always moronic *sswipes, but it's so common to see people being dehumanized, personally insulted, and told to KYS (kill yourself) anymore. Don't be fooled, this generation is not as opinion-minded, tolerant, and less bigoted as you would like to think. People are getting hostile flame over expressing simple opinions or comments. It's like people are becoming extremely short-fused now. You either have people that are too sensitive, or people too insensitive to the point where they are desensitized to almost everything.
    • If YouTube thinks you violated their Copyright or Community Guidelines, you get a strike per violation. Three strikes = permaban. DMCA is responsible for YouTube's awful copyright system.
    • My problems are:
      • Instead of simply YouTube taking down a video, they take it down and punish you for it.
      • There are countless cases where videos are falsely and innocently taken down due to the error or malicious intent on the so-called claimant's end.
      • If you try to appeal, request a retraction, or submit a counter-notification, there is a high chance that you will fail and YouTube will blindly side with the claimant and say, "Tough s**t."
      • They will listen to a larger, more established company and corporation over you unless you are a big YouTuber in most cases.

    • Google doesn't want to start a human YouTube Support Team and Customer Service to properly review claims and help YouTube creators because they are underneath DMCA's nutsack and think none of them can benefit financially from it. These large corporations lobbied for DMCA and they'll lobby for something even bigger! Any politician against this will either be sent to hiding or bought out.
    • This is why monopolies and reliance on a sole source for something aren't good. The company who has the monopoly believes they can do anything they want or not have to perform at their best. If the company isn't doing their best, then it's possible that many who rely on the company's prosperity may not receive the best either. The too big to fail mentality will have you end up like AOL and MySpace.

    Sorry, I had to vent because I'm very passionate about this first world problem.

    Check this out. You know the latest and popular Zombie Prank video that two brothers and their sister made together? Guess what? JukinVideo fraudulently claimed the video and they don't even own it. How despicable...

    And that's BS because it shouldn't even be like this. There are several times when YouTube won't even give you an explanation on why they took down your video or channel in the first place. They also sometimes don't tell you why they disabled monetization on your channel. Hell, YouTube isn't even always adhering to their three-strike rule anymore. As you've stated, I've gotten one video flagged and one of my entire channels terminated because of it. Do they have some sort of vendetta against me?

    Can you please clarify what you define as "third-party s****?"

    The main point is this: Cabot Phillips should be the one monetizing the video, not JukinVideo. That's blatant theft and the Phillips family needs to sue whenever they find out.

    The issue is if you spam a little too hard, it'll trigger YouTube's anti-spambot system to where I cannot access my channel, videos will be flagged and deleted, they'll ask for phone number or maybe even government-issued IDs, and I'm banned from creating any other channels with the same Google Account. Flame, resent and trolls aside, times on the Internet have never been this tough for me. This information needs to be known and spread around!

    You only create one channel per gmail account and rotate the Ip address.Upload the videos in small increments per day this make the accounts more human and less robotic .last but not least look out for banned keywords for your videos.

    Places where they can just rip all your work from beneath you within seconds. I lost a lot of work using a WYSIWYG website builder / host, for something that is not even against their terms and conditions (making casino sites). Luckily I could replace a good lot of the rankings using 301s.

    another guy like you here https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/3ja6lv/how_many_videos_can_you_upload_in_one_day_without/
    the funny thing is his videos are private, evidently no falg from trolls.
    There are also plenty other people in this situation, reading the forum you can see tons of complaints, I guess youtube is bombaded with appeals and not funny for them too, lol. I imagine that is like a civil war, shooting the spam enemies will create collateral damages to the civil too, the only thing you can do is to disguise yourself as a civil, then just rinse and repeat

    If they allowed Junkin video to monetize their video. That means they didn't know jack about monetizing their own video in the 1st place. The original uploader left thousands of dollars on the table what a dumbass.

    See I wasn't using any third-party software at all. In fact, I actually uploaded all of the content manually and had less than 5 videos on each channel. It makes no sense! I've sent them emails regarding the situation and they can't even give me a reasonable response because there is none.

    I never spammed on YouTube. Posting an external link on each video is not spam. If I began to spam now, then it cannot be manually. Hell, you can't even post five 10-15 minute videos on your new channel without getting flagged anymore. Not sure what automatic system anyone here is using, but if it can currently outsmart these annoying spam detectors, then I'm willing to experiment.

    People like the uploader seem to want e-fame more than money. The average person isn't often well-aware enough on how to make money with YouTube. So yes, it all comes down to ignorance and lack of knowledge on the uploader's end. Nevertheless, an illegal act was committed by the artificial claimant and it doesn't make it any less wrong. I'd feel extremely sick if I was the video owner.

    It is better to associate your Youtube account with a Network. The chances of ban are less then
