    This morning I woke up to a ton of emails from Youtube. Looks like something happened today.

    I lost one account with 50+ videos on it. Many of the videos were flagged.

    Other accounts have been hit with "age" related penalties so the viewers have to sign in to verify their age.

    Lots of niches, different types of videos. Not sure if I was attacked (flagging) or if YT changed a policy today.

    Lots of work and money down the drain. Pretty discouraging.

    Anyone else hit today?

    I thought it was someone targeting me (and it may have been for one account) but other accounts/videos got age restricted today, different niches. I think there may be more going on here.

    The funny thing is, my account that got banned/wiped is still there. All the videos are gone. So maybe I got 7 emails for 7 videos, but then the other 45 videos vanished, but the account is still there. When I went to sign in today, it told me I had to setup up a YT channel (which I had done before) and now it seems to be ok, but there are no videos in it. I haven't uploaded anything yet until I see what's going on.

    Now it's getting funny. My YT account is still there and I've now posted 6 videos to it....

    So basically, they just wiped all my 50+ videos from the channel and left the channel.

    Seems odd.

    What else you were expecting??/ Uploading all the videos on a single account is your mistake. Next time, remember this golden rule:

    One Video per Account Only

    Funny, I thought that the age of the account and the number of videos built trust, etc. I guess not. YT never questions when 10 of your videos get flagged in the span of a few minutes. Well live and learn.

    I do have other accounts with just 1-5 videos per and some get banned, some don't.

    One thing I just noticed is the when I sign in under my username, it tells me "Your account has been permanently disabled."

    Also, this is new, when I sign in under the account name's CHANNEL, all is well and I can upload videos. Anyone know what this means? same email/pswd used for both.:confused:

    You did something, they interlinked the accounts, you left a footprint of some kind. They don't just randomly hit peoples accounts, you did something to get them taken down. I'm guessing you were doing something in the adult niche, considering you said that some of your videos got tagged to be 18+ viewers. If they manually reviewed a channel where your content was against their ToS, they probably linked some of your other accounts and saw more ToS violating videos and took those down too.
