    They were flagging all of my videos. What do I do if YouTube doesn't accept my appeal?

    They said that it was due to violation of Community Guidelines (spam, spammy descriptions, spammy tags,misleading titles, fake views, etc.) even though I have not violated any rules.

    Provide us more information in what niche where you and was it monetized or not?
    And who was flagging the video and did you actually included any kind of banned words in your videos?

    2 days ago I got community guidelines strike on my main channel too. Youtube accepted my appeal and deleted the strike. They deleted my second channel (community guidelines) and I'll try to get it back.
    If you didn't have any spam, misleading metadata, scams etc. you can try to appeal, there's big chance that they will delete the strike. Bigger chance is when you have big and successful channel.

    Youtube flagging system is broken OP, you see ? a lot of famous youtubers getting copyright strikes for nothing, deleted videos, closed channels etc. a friend of mine with a gaming channel got also a strike for nothing, he appealed like @oczko98 said and the strike was removed. It's worth a try.

    Videos 1 & 2 - Received 2 Copyright Strikes by [email protected] posing as "Apple Music." Submitted 2 Counter-Notifications. One was Approved, The Other was wrongfully Rejected. Waiting For Response.
    Videos 3 & 4 - Flagged as Spam. Video 4 removed permanently. Received 2 Community Guidelines Strikes. Submitted Appeals. Currently Under Review.

    All 4 of my videos were taken down and are unavailable.

    I also forgot to mention that after I filed the appeal, my account is no longer disabled. However, I can't upload videos and have access to other features due to these faulty strikes. What am I supposed to do?

    I suspect your channel got hit by flag bots from your competitor.I got attacked like this on one of my channels earlier this year 2 videos got removed for spam because I getting more traffic than my competitors was getting.

    Many people here tell you to beat your competition by ranking higher and creating better stuff. Well, if they're using flagging bots after they copied your content, you're f#cked. You usually know who did it to you because all the stuff on your channel suddenly appears on theirs.

    Many users currently love to re-upload my videos and use my ideas. However, at this point, it's difficult to catch them all. I'm not trying to get into any legal issues with anyone.

    So far YouTube decided to remove 1 Community Strike and reinstate one video, but the other 3 strikes remain. I think my competitors and haters are flagging the videos as spam. As for the copyright trolls, who want money and control, they will make false copyright claims against me in hopes of monetizing my videos, or getting them taken down. I'm doing as much as possible to communicate with YouTube, but 90% of the time they do not listen or care.

    Update: I have 4 strikes now. 2 Copyright Strikes & 2 Community Guidelines Strikes. Features are disabled now, including uploading!

    A new strike was applied to my account almost an hour ago because YouTube allowed this POS network, along with some haters, to flag my popular video that had over 1 million views!
    This unnamed POS network tried to unsuccessfully monetize 2 of my videos. It is no coincidence that these same 2 videos are now flagged as spam.

    It is very obvious when you start ranking. This is a sort of negative SEO for your video or channel.

    What am I supposed to do? I tried appealing them both, but YouTube still has both of the videos down. I appealed one of them almost 1 week ago without any success.

    I'm sorry to hear that.When you dealing with Youtube don't put all your eggs in one basket,so you will be still be in business if one of your channels gets taken out.I hate the flaggers they can't create but they do destroy.

    I fucking hate those irritable kids and young sub-adults with arrested development who enjoy abusive flagging and misreporting videos on purpose. YouTube knows that false flagging is a serious issue, but they rarely do anything about it.

    How am I supposed pick another niche now? I've been on YouTube for years, so I'm very familiar with how things work there. Of course this bullshit just had to happen me, just as I started getting over 300 subs per day!

    If I am forced to quit YouTube, I'm screwed. If I have to learn about selling e-books on Facebook or doing Amazon affiliate marketing, I will fail miserably. Most of these niches are full and difficult to earn good money from.

    It's like getting a good cushy government job, but some unprofessional clique of assholes get you fired. And now you have to work at Wal-Mart and hope to one day work on coming across a good opportunity elsewhere or learn how to become a Wal-Mart manager.

    I don't want to go through the hassle of picking another field and learning something from scratch again because of some self-righteous motherfuckers who want to take my channel down over some petty bullshit. And I damn sure don't want to work at Wal-Mart! You barely earn shit there.

    If anyone wants to know the POS network who is at least partially responsible for my misfortune, PM me.
