    I use Vagex and from their new feature with comments, I think I am getting my videos banned.. In last 2 weeks, my viral videos get banned, I was using Vagex to increase their views, likes and comments... Is that possible or how the hell that my videos get so many flags, damn.. :S

    First of all, what an awful name for software. Vagex. Sounds like some kind of feminine hygiene product.

    Second, are you really going heavy on these features or taking it easy and doing it over time?

    Most probably a competitor , I was using Vagex a few days ago to drive traffic to a marketing vid.

    I never use comments , Just likes etc.

    Yeah, awful name it is haha.. Well I am doing it easy.. Maybe because of repiting IP's in Vagex system.. And YT changed some things about that, so maybe that is problem.. I really don't know.. I just know that my earnings will be so low after this, that I can't imagine :S

    Oh you should hear their FireFox plugin name, and Android application. Firevag and Vagdroid. :D

    @OP
    It's not been proven yet that you can get banned with services like Vagex, but there is a slight chance.

    If YouTube would take action against Vagex, they would just remove all the "fake" views, and not actually remove the video itself.

    It must either be:
    1) YouTube changed their policies
    2) You got flagged by a competitor

    You believe they would deduct view count instead of removing a video that's attempting to manipulate it's results? Not saying you're wrong, but if I was G/Youtube I'd ban/delete anything that was triggering any of my automation abuse detection, or freeze it for life, at a minimum.

    YouTube invented the phrase "views spam" about a month ago, when they removed many views from videos, but I don't think they will ban anyone for using such programs. They can not prove it was you who put the video into rotation or someone else. But it is bad when seening credits go from Vagex, without any increase of the views.

    I am using vagex from quite some time and I haven't faced any problem so far.
    I don't think YT will ban you because of using vagex.

    I wouldn't use the comments at all. I tried it on some of my videos and the usernames and comments gave away they weren't real people.

    Usernames such as vagexuser etc kept appearing on mine.

    I'm sure no one knows the exact system that YouTube uses to delete videos based on flags. One could only assume it would have to reach a certain amount of flags, with a weighted degree if flags come in at a rapid pace and what they are reporting it for (abuse, inappropriate content, etc). There's no way to protect from this, but I'm sure YouTube has a means in place to not allow innocent videos be deleted due to automated flagging systems (such as manually reviewing a certain amount of videos queued for deletion due to flags).

    Time and time again :D Simple logics > If you get banned for this then the competitor can take you out at anytime. Which would make no sense.
