Contact YouTube about account suspension? Duke1350 6/24/09 9:18 PM
My account was suspended. I made animations and put them on that account. Some had animated violence in them, but YouTube's community guidelines only states to not post "someone being physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated". So the animated violence couldn't have been be the problem. I didn't infringe on copyright either. All music used for the animations was from Newground's audio portal which says you can use their music as long as you give attribution to the author of the song, which I did in all of my videos that had music.

The only other thing I could possibly think of is some story that one of my haters made up about me. The user claims I supposedly discriminated against people with disabilities which is of course completely false. The user even admits to having no idea how I discriminated against anyone.

That user must have flagged my videos with that bogus story and YouTube must have just took their word for it. The day after my account was suspended, that same user puts on their channel "I love it when a plan comes together", and continued telling that same lie that I supposedly discriminated against people with disabilities. They then started claiming they were part of some "anti-cyberbully community" yet I have quite a few of THEIR comments saved as pictures on my computer that perfectly fit the cyberbully description.

What is wrong with that person? And what is wrong with YouTube's flagging system? My videos had been flagged by other haters before, months would go by and nothing would happen, but then one of them adds in some bogus story and then I get suspended? YouTube should be working on the flagging system first, not that new channel design that no one even likes.

Did they send you an email about the suspension.  Try replying to that email and tell them what you told us here.

Actually, even animated violence is against the rules, if it's bad enough. Note that the rules say "someone", not necessarily "a real person".

YouTube doesn't disable videos or suspend accounts if they don't actually break the rules, and really do review flagged videos. One of my own videos has been flagged multiple times over a long period and nothing has ever happened to it.

Yea they sent an email about the suspension. I sent a reply and got an automated response saying I sent mail to an invalid email address. They also said I had use a contact form from the Help Center, but I couldn't find any about account suspensions.


The rules also said say they have to be physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated for the video to violate the guidelines. Nobody, whether they are real or not real, can be physically hurt through an animation.

And I had a lot of my videos flagged too, months would go by and nothing happened to them either. It wasn't until that one person started making up stories.
