    My youtube video was flagged and taken down for content issues. I'm pretty sure it didn't violate any terms. I sent an appeal and the video was restored. Is it possible for it to be flagged again?

    Topic was about freebies. It went down almost instantly after uploading it. Not sure it even had any views to be honest.

    I have experienced this before. Uploading a video and it getting instantly flagged without any views. Anyway my appeal was accepted so the video is back

    Was not views.

    The problem was not with your video, the problem was in your description.

    While I'm not going to absolutely spoon feed you on this, I'll give you a massive head start.

    Look at your description ... See any special characters in there that are not usually used in other video descriptions in general?

    Still not certain? Take out all punctuation.

    YouTube algorithm will auto-flag (community flag) your video for these types of violations.

    And that is why you can get a video flagged by the community before you even have a single view on that video.

    Can you provide an example of punctuation which trigger the flag ? Foreign language like German has tons of punctuation so how is it possible ?
