Hello everyone, I have been lurking the site for quite some time now and finally decided to get involved. My main questions that I have come from wanting to promote my videos on YouTube. I have a channel that focuses on video games and game commentaries. I want to know if making YouTube accounts to subscribe, comment and like the videos that I post from my main account will get my main account banned or into any sort of trouble. I have read a lot about users getting their YouTube accounts banned but it seemed that a lot of that was from re-uploading other people's videos and promoting affiliate links. I don't want to do any of that with these accounts. I just want to make them subscribe to my main account, like my videos, and comment. All of this will be done manually. 1. Will my main account be safe doing this if I make these accounts or will my main account get banned? 2. Should I use a proxy to make these new accounts and subscribe, comment, and like my videos on a proxy or will my accounts get banned by doing this as well? 3. After making a "fake" account on a proxy will I need to somehow use the same ip address that I used to create the account on in order to comment, and like future videos after subscribing or will this matter? Is it even possible to use the same ip address in the future? Thank you so much for you help, I look forward to discussing this with everyone.
