    So, yeah, this morning (CEST time) my YT channel got banned with 380 vids, a lot of subs, views...

    Never in my life got 1 warning or anything close to that, all vids was edited by me, hours/days/months of works on YT channel + sites + a lot of other work...

    At the end, this happend...

    I uploaded last video at 3am CEST time, at 5am I got banned, why?
    Because of tags! WTF!

    They say "Misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails designed to increase views are not allowed."
    None of that I used, descriptions was short, titles was ok, thumbnails was perfect, tags was short cause niche is not that much popular...

    Then they say "Your account has received one Community Guidelines strike, which will expire in six months."
    Ok, even I know I didnt do nothing bad, it is ok, I'm not here to cry or whatever, I'm here to learn, nothing else...
    Just, my question is, why I can not use my account?
    Why is my account banned totaly, do not exist anymore?

    So, after 3 years, again never in my life I didnt do nothing bad to cause this, NEVER...
    Why they deleted my account just like that?
    Whitout even saying where corectly did I made mistake?
    Cause I'm not sure where, none of what they sent me (auto-message), is not true, none of them...

    So, anyone have same, close expirience with all this happening?

    Again, I am sure I did not do nothing against rules, it was usual day just like any in past.
    Plus, I believe YT never was faster with ban, in just 2 hours after my last video I got banned, 2 damn hours.
    Honestly I never see in my life that happen, never...

    I need to repeat myself cause I know people would be like, oh, you must done something wrong etc etc, YT never do that...
    You can just trust me or not, something that makes me money, I'll do whatever I need to get more and never do anything against the rules, that's all I can say.

    What was your channel about?
    Was it the first time you received a warning?

    I had a rot of videos banned recently too all had that same message, I think they just didn't ban my channel because it was really big.

    Hey Vox0ut
    Channel was about sports.
    Yes, my first warning.
    I can start new one and I will 100% do that if I cant get back this one, just I'm sad because it's 3 years old, 3 years of hard work, and I am sure there is nothing bad about that channel, nothing...
    I'm asking myself what can be cause, and I can not answer, I just cant.
    Only logic answer is, mistake?
    But then how such a big network can mistake just like that...
    I dont know, I wish I know but I dont.

    Just read about some new rules on YT about tags and descriptions.
    But still, tags are for that, right?
    Why we have tags if I cant type what I want, nothing against the rules, just simple not more then 5 tags.
    I dont know, I'm so confused about this, at the end why didnt I just got warning, dont let me monetize vids, but give me back my channel, why is first warning = total ban?

    You are providing just enough information to demonstrate that you clearly violated YT TOS. You absolutely might not KNOW what you did - bought views is the most likely reason your account was banned. Do keep in mind a competitor might well have done all sorts of underhanded things to also get your account banned.

    When you get banned by YT in this manner - it's always because of TOS violations. That doesn't mean it was you that did it. It's a sad reality that nowadays any competitor can pretty much get any site blocked from G, and accounts closed simply by massively violating rules and making it look like you did it. Since people suck - that's what is going on. The lesson to learn is twofold. 1. F Big G - she sucks, and everybody should simply stop using all G products. 2. If ignoring rule 1 - time to get MANY G accounts.

    If you tagged these videos with appropriate/matching tags entirely - there is no chance it was a ban for tags unless some of those were ... "Watch XYZ Sporting Event Online Free," etc... You got banned for TOS violations.

    I think it happened because you looked very spammy for the spam team. You have to be very careful regarding tags, some guys are overdoing this even writing "tags" inside the video description. It does not help having thousands of tags, try 6-9 GOOD ones not just anything do some research and look how old videos with high ranking are doing such part.

    sorry to hear that, from my experience youtube sends a general message like that, not even sure it is because of the tags

    Furthermore I am quite sure they intentionally do it to make you thing it is flagged by a person like your competitor, and you start to do it also, therefore helping them. I don't say there is no flag from the users but 99.99% of the bans are coming from by their detection system not from the users.

    I noticed your grammar was subpar. the bots may had picked up and mistook it as stealth geotagging. Where people put tags into a sentence form that makes no sense however when read by a bot were use to bypasss. Your grammer skills could have confused the system.

    Thats a very good point - youtubers with non-native english probably are picked on a LOT more because of this.
