    I just created a Music channel to test out a method I read here. Used a few dummy accounts (PVA + from different IPs + 2 months aged) to like and comment to give it a jump start. In 1 hour I already got $10 which got me excited.

    Hours later, I got a copyright strike so I deleted the video. Then I uploaded a new video with no sounds but with the same Title, tags, desc, etc. And it got removed again (So I guess it's the desc link this time) which I think triggered my IP being banned. Now all the dummy accounts I used to like/comment I think are banned since I cannot login to them anymore. Now I'm worried that my legit channels gets taken down as well. I haven't tried logging in to them in hopes that it gets spared. So far, their videos are still up which is a good sign. But I don't want to risk logging in to them.

    Should have used a proxy. Bad risk. Lesson learned the hard way. :(

    My question is, Is this a BAN/Suspension permanent? is it IP or just Account?

    Anyone who got their accounts back?

    that is the silliest thing I have ever heard - you are risking real accounts with fake accounts. never ever do that. always have 1 or alternate ips. I do all my tests on other ips for dodgy stuff and another word of advice. Google is a pain and is getting hardcore on copyright. beware of methods that are not fully workable. youtube is acting fast these days. don't take a risk always think abt what you are doing.

    and yes its permanent you wil never get the account back. one its gone its gone.

    Thanks for the reply. I know it was really stupid. I got too excited and forgot to set a proxy. Lesson learned the hard way.

    I'm sure my IP is in the watch list of youtube now. Is this also permanent? Should I refrain from logging in to some of my accounts using this IP from now on?

    youtube like any other social network tends to not delete older accounts. so your account might still be there. clear all your cookies and login.see what happens. they tend to target accounts that are new and already doing something wrong. older accounts last much longer.

    Google records logins from all IP's so chances are if they wanted to ban the accounts they would have done so already. but change ur IP with mac clone or proxy and then login.

    other than that I have nothing to say but deal with it, and goodluck.

    All is well now. Edited main post to hide few info.

    I won't go into details but legit channels spared. I'll keep monitoring and remain cautious. :)

    Thank you both!

    Too much paranoia. Just go ahead and log in to your older accounts, use them normally. I bet they're still alive. Go ahead try it. Don't let fear overcome yourself.
