    Well i had my totally whitehat youtube account suspended and I'm not sure why. They didn't even send me a notice or anything explaining why they suspended the account. Whenever i try to login, it just says "this account is disabled". I didn't upload anything that would be copyright infringing on it, so I'm not sure why it was suspended at all.

    Anyways, I am trying to figure out how to contact Youtube and try to get the account reinstated because I had like 200 videos on there and really want it back. However, I can't find a way to contact them on their website to have the account restored. Does anybody know how?

    I am sorry, I don't think it's possible :-/

    I have had my share of white hat accounts taken down too...

    Somebody said to go here:

    hxxp://help.youtube.com/support/youtube/bin/request.py

    Then select Account Issue.

    Then Suspended Account, but when i get to the final page nothing is there.

    Was hoping maybe somebody knew an email address.

    Maybe it's a lost cause :/

    In reply to johnjohnsonver:

    I tried following the directions in the second post, but when I do that and get to the final screen, there is nothing there, just an empty page with no form. I talked to somebody earlier who said the form might be down at the moment, but i don't know.

    I'd be very surprised if they check that email, but I guess it's worth a shot.

    I heard of people restoring there accounts a few months ago but the option to do so was taken away i seen videos on youtube about it you should check into them videos on youtube and watch them and see how them guys did and are still trying to do it i use to know how to but they changed things around now so much it is unreal but there should still be videos on it last time i heard it is a hit and miss and even if you got your account back your vids will be gone from what i have heard but good luck and let us know what happened

    The form is probably down. YT has been doing maintenance for several hours in the evening for 3 days in a row - every night - several hours of maint - SCARY - i do know people (not personally but 'OF' people) who have had their accounts restored.

    However, its probably a 1 in a 10,000 shot - give it a shot.

    The only couple of channels i've seen restored were after massive youtube video campaigns from people complaining about the take down - these are super pop channels like failblog.
