    Today when I went to my YT account all my partner features were no longer there. I did some digging and found my monetization was disabled. Then I checked and found my Adsense was cancelled due to inactivity. Ive been a partner for about a month and half. When I tried to reapply it said "this account has already applied for partnership" Ive been uploading good content and videos regulary and each video has been getting 5-10K hits every month. I did fill out an application to appeal the adsense cancellation. Does anyone know if there is any way to fix this? Im SO disappointed. I worked really hard to build up my channel with good content, subs, friends and videos and now its impossible to monetize. :( PS- edited to say my YT account is in good standing with no copywrite issues.

    Never post your channel here. YouTube monitors these forum.

    Ok well I havent done anything wrong so that shouldnt matter. I'm just trying to figure out why my partnership was taken away without any explaination. Especially since it says my account is in good standing. Ive worked really hard on this channel. Ive put in several years of doing videos. I was so happy when I finally got partnership. But now I don't know what to do because there doesnt seem to be a way to contact youtube about this issue. Really bummed out about this. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix it?

    I don't know how to get it back, try writing in the YouTube HELP center or contact YouTube somehow.
    Did you use any Authorized websites? like EnhanceViews?
    Try going to your Account settings --> Manage Accounts, and check if you have any third party websites.
    Perhaps YouTube checked your accounts and saw that you are cheating your views/subscribers/etc..
    I'm just telling you my thought, not sure at all if it has something to do with it.

    NO it says my account is in good standing under manage accounts. There is nothing about any third party websites.

    AdSense doesn't get disabled because of inactivity, it gets disabled because of "invalid click activity". Your "good standing" is in regards to copyright and community guidelines. Nothing at all to do with the termination of your AdSense account.
    You can appeal once, that's it.

    appeal.

    its all you can do.

    they use humans - if its an obvious F up on their part they will apologise and turn your service back on.

    if you have don't anything bad you will never get a partnered account again.

    I havent had anyone click on anything. Ive never clicked on my own ads. I appealed and am waiting for them to respond. I noticed that other former partners have posted some videos when they were disabled because of adsense and people have been saying that trolls were clickbombing the ads on their videos in order for them to lose partnership. This seems to have been a problem for a bunch of people and many of them did not get their partnership back after submitting an appeal.

    I have a production company and that was the YT account that was disabled. The adsense was in the name of the production company which is an LLC. I have a personal YT account that is not a partner yet. I guess if I my appeal is denied I should start focusing on my own personal YT? Perhaps start an adsense in my own name? Its stupid really because the other one was kind of a group effort. I guess we could start over with a new channel and put it under a different person in our group. That would suck though. We have almost 70 videos and have had our channel since '08.

    once your adsense is banned you can never make another account again under the same ip and address

    That doesnt make sense because my husband has his own adsense account for his blog that was separate from this one and we share several laptops on various servers btween home, work and mobile mifi devices. His account was not disabled.

    The IP doesn't matter, but if you can't reopen it in your real name, what's the point?

    Well I checked the google guidelines for adsense because I applied for monetization with my personal youtube and was approved. The guidelines say that if you have a business adsense you can also have separate personal adsense because as business adsense is in a different name. If I were to open an adsense in my husbands name it wouldnt matter because in the end its all going to the same place. I really dont care. I just want a partnership back. We werent making a lot of money with the partnership. Most of our videos were getting 3k-25k. I would say that we averaged about 10K per video. Thats not a lot of money. We were just hoping to build that up to help build a following. I really liked having the branding options through the partnership account. Having the freedom to make a thumbnail and not be restricted to the three random thumbnails that Youtube gives you is a big deal.
