|If you don't get a response from Google, does that mean that your appeal is not being considered?||Aliascgar||4/29/12 1:12 PM|
I appealed a while back but received no response. I just received the original email stating that they received my appeal. Is Google not considering my appeal? Also, I have appealed 5 times.

You're allowed to appeal once.
Subsequent appeals are likely to (a) slow down appeal reviews (b) not be considered at all.

So, after the first appeal, there will be no considerations given for subsequent appeals?

No, not if your appeal contained nothing new, and quite possibly, not even then. The appeals page says they only look at the first appeal, and all others may be ignored.

Fair enough, though Gracey, can you weigh in on this thought that I had, I was thinking that possibly some of my YouTube subscribers were the ones clicking on my advertisements leading to my account's closure. So my plan is to create a video in which I ask anybody who has ever clicked on any of my advertisements to post a comment on a thread on this forum saying how many times they had clicked on a particular type of ad and their general geographical location. I am thinking that one or maybe more of my subscribers were hoping to 'help' me out. Though I never made such a request.
I am hoping that either it was my own subscribers or I am honestly out of leads. This whole ordeal has very much distressed me and deeply upset me. Possibly, if I find the people who clicked on my ads will Google reconsider my account being disabled? I understand that they do not commonly read these forums, but I hope that if it does happen to be a subscriber of mine that this forum's Top Contributors will bring it to their attention.
I have been told to just forgot AdSense. Personally, I have no problems with that. I wasn't creating massive amounts of money anyway. I hadn't even earned my first payment. The main problem that I have, and I have said this on this forum before, is the fact that I cannot become a YouTube partner or a Machinima partner. I was hoping I could strike a compromise of some sort, where if AdSense does not want to reinstate my account, I can hopefully just retain the ability to be a YouTube and Machinima partner.
These are all ideas, I haven't put any into action yet. I am just very upset over the situation regarding my AdSense account and this past weekend I have just been racking my brain attempting a solution to this problem.
I have also contemplated trying to meet some AdSense representatives face to face, or to call a Google office but those ideas seem extremely far fetched.

I don't know, really. There's not much of a chance that it would do any good, but I buess it wouldn't hurt - the staff doesn't read these forums, and the staff we have access to doesn't handle disabled accounts.
Yes, that's pretty much the case (being far-fetched I mean) Meeting one would be near impossible - it's not like they wander around with "Adsense Pro" on their t-sirts, so you could walk right by one and never know. Besides, people don't get to wander around the buildings on their own. And all of their receptionists are trained for absolute politeness ... but don't count on getting your call forwarded to anyone who can actually help you.

This seems like a very dreadful situation for me. The chances of anything happening seem to be very, very grim. Thinking back, I should've reported some weird fluctuations in my earnings to Google in that as I posted a video, within the first few hours, I received $5.00 in payment. Which is very odd for me. Also, I am hoping that saying how much I earned per one video will not get my chances of getting my account reinstated lower than they are now but I'd just like some input and the best way I see fit is to share the full situation. I usually earned maybe 70 cents per video if I was lucky, though that one video shot me up to an earning of $5! That was unheard of for me, and at the time I thought "Wow!". Though, later in the following days, that earning of $5 dollars was dropped to somewhere around the 70-90 cent mark. I thought Google had made a mistake and that they resolved it swiftly, but in retrospect, it seems like it may have been a click 'bomber' or someone who was just trying to 'help' me out. I'm honestly not too sure what it was, though I hope it wasn't the first. Maybe I can compile another appeal with my new-found information, as well as a case where I received a massive (by my previous standards) influx of traffic due to another YouTuber recommending me, as well, when I read some of Google's help websites, they said that they review traffic influxes and there is no need to report them. So I didn't see fit that I should.
Another thought I had was to instead of appealing yet again and "slowing down the process" I just go and email my discoveries to a Google support email and hope it gets reviewed.
Also, I completely understand what you mean about the T-shirts and the AdSense pros, I don't really know what I was thinking. I am just desperate and upset.

Also, could you please tell me why I don't see a level beside my name? I see it beside most people who post here and I was wondering why I hadn't received one.
|Gracey||4/29/12 7:13 PM|
I've no idea about the levels on this new forum platform - some people have them, some don't so I'm not sure. The old forum showed a level for everyone, even new people. For a while, nobody was showing levels in the new forum.
I don't know if it would do any good at this point. Generally we caution people not to submit an appeal until they've investigated and gathered whatever information and statistics they can. Having appealed a large number of times already, might not get your new information seen, but nobody can stop you from submitting another one.
I have great doubts that would work since the support emails don't go to the team that handles disabled accounts. Those folks are like, in a bunker or something, you can't really find away to get any contact with them, except the appeal form.
Yes, I know - at least you aren't swearing at us.
|Aliascgar||4/29/12 7:33 PM|
Haha, no, I wouldn't be swearing at you guys, I actually love this forum environment and I appreciate all who are just volunteering to listen to me whine about my problems (though I do wish some people on the AdSense disabling staff would listen to me whine about my problems!). The reason I asked about the levels is that I wish to become a Top Contributor on this forum. I wished to do so I could access the AdSense Pros and explain my situation to them. Though I guess that doesn't seem like a valid reason anymore as they're not the ones handling disabled accounts.

I don't know if someone who has a disabled Adsense account could be a TC in the Adsense forum, but there are lots of Google forums where you can offer help. Information about the program is here:
