AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/12/12 6:30 AM
Hello there,

Stop me immediatly if it is against AdSense policy.

I have a video game channel on youtube, I got an invite to join the monetisation program and after many difficulties i managed to turn in on.

I also managed to apply for an AdSense account to be linked to my youtube channel.

I understand the rules regarding the video game content. This it is copyrighted material and so i can't monetize it without the written agreement from the copyright owner. The game I play is starcraft by the company Blizzard ENT.
I contacted them to ask permission to use the material and the answer was positive.

"You will notice that Blizzard requires that the use of Blizzard Content must be limited to non-commercial purposes with the exceptions stated in the “Guidelines for distributing Productions with Blizzard Content” paragraph:

“The only exceptions to this rule are if you participate in partner programs with YouTube, Justin.tv, Blip.tv, Own3d.tv, or Ustream.tv (the “Production Websites”) whereby a Production Website may pay you for views of a Production if you are accepted into their partner program.”"

as can be found here : http://eu.blizzard.com/en-gb/company/legal/videopolicy.html

Meaning that i am allowed to use and monetize the content on my channel by the copyright owners.

Unfortunately, it seems like my application for an AdSense account linked to my channel got turn down.
My guess is that it is because the channel contains video games material that AdSense might think I don't have any rights to monetize. I say "I think" because in the e-mail I got from AdSense, there are no explicit reasons, I have absolutly no clue why I got turned down, i got left totally in the dark here.
And in the same time then my "monetization tab" got turned off.

I know for a fact that other youtube channel such as : http://www.youtube.com/user/pomfetthud got the exact same autorization from Blizzard ENT for the very same video game that i use but they can monetize their video and link their youtube account to their AdSense account. They explained in one of their video the whole process and how it is working for them.


So i have many questions :

First, the most obvious : Why did my AdSense application got turn down ?
Second, How can i send the explicit agreement from Blizzard ENT that i have to AdSense/Youtube ?
Third, Who do i have to talk to to enable my monetization tab once that got turned off ?
Fourth, Who do i have to talk to to re-enable my AdSense account linked to my youtube channel and sent him/her the agreement i have from Blizzard ENT that prroves that i can monetize my content ?

my youtube channel is : http://www.youtube.com/Pioustarcraft
my adsense editor code is : ca-yt-pub-4895533112976992
my e-mail account linked to AdSense/the youtube channel is : pioust...@gmail.com


I would like to thank you for your help and wish you a nice day.

no one ?

I think I responded to your post in the AdSense forum. 

If your application for AdSense was disapproved, you should have received an email notification explaining why.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/13/12 7:15 AM
i just need to have my adsense account un-linked to my youtube channel, but it has been desaproved and the option isn't there anymore, any suggestion ?

Do you currently have a fully approved AdSense account associated with a different email?
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/13/12 1:47 PM
yes and i did apply twice by mistake. now i would like to un-link the account that is linked to http://www.youtube.com/pioustarcraft because the AdSense linked to this account go rejected due to double application and i would like to replace it with the one that got accepted afterwards.

what info do you need to un-link the adSense account that got rejected from the youtube account : http://www.youtube.com ? i will provide them asap

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/14/12 3:00 AM
ok PeggyK, let's keep using this post here and forget about the others then, i'm sorry about the multiple posts :)
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/14/12 5:27 AM
So, PegguK, i've explained it since a week in here, on AdSense english and even on AdSense french but in the end, Can you or not have my aDsense settings removed from my account : http://www.youtube.com/pioustarcraft
I need an answer

on AdSense english, they sent me to youtube, on AdSense french, they kept arguing about video game content instead of helping me reset my account.

I need a clear answer. Is it possible to unlink the adSense account that is linked to my channel and who got rejected becaus ei made the mistake of applying for an adsense account twice. So i can afterwards link my youtube channel to the correct adsense account that i have ?

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/14/12 11:14 AM
There is no way to just unlink the disapproved AdSense application from your YouTube channel. 

There is probably a way to swap the disapproved AdSense application for a fully approved AdSense account.

So that is still unclear to me: 

- do you have a fully approved AdSense account, with no holds or other messages in it?

- if you do have a fully approved AdSense account, is it linked to the same Google account and email as your YouTube channel? or is it linked to a different Google account and email?

- if you do have a fully approved AdSense account, is it currently linked to a different YouTube channel?

I'm sorry if you've answered those questions, but I haven't understood. Could you answer again?

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/14/12 1:37 PM
Thanks, I'll ask YouTube staff to take a look. I don't know how long that might take, and note that there is no guarantee that monetization will be restored. 

You may want to delete your posts with your email address, since that information isn't necessary for staff if they have the channel name and you may want that displayed on the forum publicly.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/15/12 1:48 AM
thank you, i'll keep updating this post to let you know how things are going and to help people that would have the same problem :)

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/16/12 7:25 AM
As I indicated above, I have no way to know how long it could take for support to look at your issue. It could take them days or even a week or longer.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/16/12 8:23 AM
ok ok, well i'll keep updating so you can also know the developpment and if people happen to have the same problem as me, when they will be seraching on the forum for answers, they will have the whole process achived :)

update : it's been a week now and there's some change !!!

"500 Internal Server Error"

the old crappy bug is back even when i'm "worldwide" location in the settings.

damn i feel like a man on a deserted island that writes his journal :p

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/22/12 1:37 PM
still the same frakking bug and no news from youube or google.

i start thinking that no one within the support team will ever check my problem :s

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/23/12 1:51 AM
2 days now that i have the same error and the team of highly trained monkey seems to have better plans... i wonder if they are gonna take over the world like in the movies :)
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/23/12 9:35 AM
The 500 error bug has been reported to YouTube support. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. If it's still an issue Monday, post back.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/23/12 2:33 PM
thank you very much PeggyK :)
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/25/12 3:31 AM
still the 500 bug and about 2 weeks since peggy sent the email and still nothing has changed, it became worst.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? Noxg 6/25/12 4:23 AM
Hey, i have had my adsense account disabled for lack of documentation like another guy ive seen you help in another thread and i was wondering how can i reslove this, im waiting for replies of all the networks like ken burton (Machinima, TGN, etc..) but i was wondering if theres anyway you could help me relsove this issue because i dont want to make another account to try and get partner when this one already has 979 subs
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/25/12 4:46 AM
i'm not a youtube employee and i can't even solve my own problem that would easily be fixed by a simple reset of the monetization tab. :s

3 weeks since i started this whole s*** and it can't be fix, i'm getting mad. I only need a simple reset.

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/25/12 10:54 AM
BUMP

PeggyK, the mail you sent to youtube obviously didn't change anything, could you resent one today pls ?

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/25/12 11:44 AM
As I indicated, I have no way to know how long it might take YouTube support to review your issue.  Pestering them won't speed things up. Nothing you can do but wait.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/25/12 12:55 PM
what if the message you sent is at the bottom of the pile ? what if they mistakenly delted it ?

if you don't want to do it, tell me at leaste wher ei can do it myself or give me an email/phone number/whatever ...

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/25/12 1:16 PM
You will have to trust that it isn't "lost" as you say. And if it's at the bottom of the pile, that just means you need to wait longer.

I only escalated it 10 days ago, and it's not unusual for several weeks - sometimes a month - to pass before support gets to the issue.

As a user, there is no way for you to contact support with regards to this.

I understand that it's frustrating to wait, but that's your only option.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/25/12 2:01 PM
ok, thanks, i sent an e-mail to partner...@youtube.com this afternoon and got an answer this evening. They did reset my monetization tab and i could change to link my fully accepted AdSense account.


Now i have the monetization working. BUT, because of the previous rejection, all my videos are considered "rejected" and i can not monetize then according to the FAQ.

I was rejected due to the double application mistake. It might also be becaus ei do video taken from a video game called "starcraft 2".

I have all the agreements from Blizzard ENT (the video game maker)that allows me to monetize the content. As can be seen here :

"Greetings,

 

Thank you for your email.

 

We are glad to hear that you are enjoying making StarCraft II videos and showing them to others to view. We are always happy to support these efforts and answer any inquiries that you may have about the legality of this, you can find many of these on our “Blizzard Video Policy” page here: http://eu.blizzard.com/en-gb/company/legal/videopolicy.html

 

To obtain the required “content use license” for hosting videos on your youtube channel or If you have any inquiries regarding posting videos onto Youtube that include Blizzard games, feel free to contact communit...@blizzard.com as suggested in the above link J

 

Kind regards,

The Community Team

Blizzard Entertainment Europe"


So how can i send it to youtube so i can prove that i have the right to monetize my videos ?

Thanks PeggyK for the answers and your patience :)
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/25/12 4:33 PM
You need written documentation that you have the necessary permission to use the game content commercially. 

The Blizzard license you link to says: 

"First and foremost, note that except as specifically provided herein, Blizzard Entertainment requires that the use of Blizzard Content must be limited to non-commercial purposes.

So first you need permission. Maybe try the email that Blizzard suggested to request permission?
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/26/12 12:11 AM
as you can see here on the url i provided :

"The only exceptions to this rule are if you participate in partner programs with YouTube, Justin.tv, Blip.tv, Own3d.tv, or Ustream.tv (the “Production Websites”) whereby a Production Website may pay you for views of a Production if you are accepted into their partner program."


And just in case the explicit authorization on the website was not enough, i personnaly sent an email to blizzard that says :

"Hello again,

 

We have determined that it is possible for you to use the YouTube adds in content that you produce like guides, replay commentaries, etc.

 

Best regards,

The Community Team

Blizzard Entertainment"


Now that i have provided everything asked by youtube, where do i have to send it ?

they already deactivated my monetization tab during the night... i guess it's becaus ei wanted to monetize video game content and that they by default deactivated my tab because i didn't send the authorization i gave here... But then again, where do i have to send it ???

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/26/12 6:41 AM
ok so i checked here : http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1311196

so the part regarding video games asks me to provide documents that proves that i can use my video game content for monetization (cfr. the e-mail and link from BLIZZARD ENT) But there is no e-mail or phone numer or anything to send it to ? WTF am i supposed to do now ?

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/26/12 7:47 AM
PeggyK, is there a way to have somebody on the phone to tlak to ?

I expect there is no way to talk to anyone on the phone just like there is no way to talk to anyone by mail but if i don't ask, i'll never know for sure...

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/26/12 5:12 PM
>>  But there is no e-mail or phone numer or anything to send it to ? WTF am i supposed to do now ?

There should be a link in the email notification YouTube sent you to provide additional documentation. That link goes to a form to fill out.

Sorry there isn't any phone support.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/27/12 12:05 AM
ok, i have over 200 videos, do i really have to send over 200 times the exacte same thing knowing that it is exactly the same game on my channel ?
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? David Lundin 6/27/12 12:38 AM
Do *all* of the videos get stuck on "Under review"? Normally it'll only be a few (although probably a bunch if you have 200 videos altogether).

And yes, you'll have to submit the same documentation over and over, the system as it is right is great like that.

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/27/12 2:59 AM
the monetization tab is desabled, so at the moment, none of them are under review...

Like a week ago or so, when i made the misatke of asking twice for an AdSense account, the account worked for a day or so, at that moment, i got an email with about 200 videos that got rejected from the program (note that about 100 of the videos of the very same game were just fine and accepted for monetization at that moment).
Well the AdSense got shut down because the one on my personnal account got accepted.

Fast forward 2 days ago, my monetization tab got reset, i could put the correct information from the fully accepted adsense that was linked to my personnal account. The, a few hours after, the monetization tab got desabled. I didn't get any email to explain the reasons why it got shut down.


Ok, i'll take the email i got the first time and will copy/past the same text 200 times. That will piss the persone in charge of A LOT but if it's what it takes...

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/27/12 6:49 AM
oh i forgot to mention. Before starting my professional youtube channel, i did some test on my personnal channel to understand the size/quality i could have from the video games i use.

when the monetization tab was accepted on my personnal channel, all the videos got accepted for monetization.

Fun part is, one of those video was the "final version" so i just re-uped it as my first vidoe on my professional channel. And it got rejected for monetization there... but on  my personnal channel, it's still working just fine and so are the about 10 tests videos i did.

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/27/12 9:16 AM
It seems like the review of videos has gotten stricter lately with regards to 3rd party content. It was more of a fluke that the same videos with the game play content were allowed to be monetized originally.

Ok, i'll take the email i got the first time and will copy/past the same text 200 times. That will piss the persone in charge of A LOT but if it's what it takes...

You may want to start with just a few videos, to see if they actually think the documentation is sufficient.

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/27/12 9:46 AM
ok so it's stricter but why can i monetize a video from a video game on my personnal channel but i can't monetize the same video on my professional channel ?

Even more, why can channels such as : Huskystarcraft ; HD starcraft ; Pomf & Thud ; myEGnet ; Psystarcraft ; ... Upload starcraft 2 videos just like mine and monetize it so much that they can make a living out of it ?

I'm not saying that's it's against me personnaly because i can monetize starcraft 2 content on my personnal channel as said earlier, i just don't get why i can't do it on my professional channel...

I didn't get any e-mails this time to tell me why my tab was desabled... as you could see earlier, I have all the documentation just like all the other channels do have !

I'm not doing anything against the rules or illegal as far as i know...

I've done everything Youtube asked to prove that i'm 100% legit and not doing anything against the rules.

I don't plan on making a living out of it, i only have between 10.000 and 20.000 views in the last 30 days, it's just a recreational activity that takes me a LOT of time (3 hours taken for a 30 minutes long video).
I'm only trying to make a few dollars here to have a tiny something as a return for my work and i feel like youtube is doing everything it can to block me in the process :s


Yesterday a guy called "Sander" from the Youtube Team sent me an email from bepartne...@youtube.com but i can't answer it because i get a message saying that my email got stuck in the spam filters, that's the guy who did reset my monetization tab.

PeggyK, could you help me contacting that Sander guy ? or link him to this post ?

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/27/12 12:03 PM
Huskystarcraft and psystarcraft appear to be part of "theGameStation" network. PomfetThud are associated with OgamingTV. MyEGnet and HDStarcraft are well established channels with many millions of views (I don't know if they are affiliated with a network or not).

It used to be easier to establish yourself as a partner with a gaming channel. Now many gamers find it easier to affiliate with a network, which can deal with the licensing stuff with YouTube.

I will ask support about your trouble responding to the email from Partner Support.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/27/12 12:28 PM
yeah i've heard about the networks such as machinema and so on but i don't really feel like to join them as i do my videos as a hobby (and i've heard a lot of bad things about machinema from videomakers that are affiliate to it).

I think HD is affiliated with the game station. MyEG, i don't know.

Well, regarding the licencing, because i only do starcraft video and that i have the explicit agreement from blizzard, that shouldn't be a problem i guess

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/28/12 2:06 AM
ok so what is the next step now ? i've given everything youtube asked, i have all the agreement and authorization, youtube didn't ask me for anything else...

What do i have to do now that i've done everything to have my monetization tab enabled and to start monetize my videos ?

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/28/12 5:31 AM
PomfetThud are associated with OgamingTV - Ogaming is the company Pomf & Thud formed, so basicly they are associated to themselves :-/
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/28/12 12:20 PM
Ok so i just got an e-mail from a support member called Maria this time asking me the link to the video i have a problem with.

I only sent to links becaus ei don't feel like copy/pasting the whole 300+ videos i have :/ I tol her what it is all about and hopefully, my mail won't get caught in the spam filter this time so i can actually start finding a solution to the problem

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/29/12 12:15 AM
PeggyK, Sander sent me an e-mail, he told me that you told him the email got blocked so i resent it but it got blocked once again...

And the loop starts again...

i have all the requiered agreement as i have shown about 10 times now... WHO DO I HAVE TO SEND THEM TO ? I have already sent them to the video form i got, they are not "under review", the tab is desabled.

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/29/12 9:45 AM
bump it up :)
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/29/12 10:07 AM
If you have used the "additional documentation" form, then you probably just have to wait for your submission to be reviewed. Some people are reporting that can take weeks - sometimes longer than a month. 
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/29/12 11:01 AM
even if the tab is desabled and the videos are not under review anymore ?
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/29/12 11:46 AM
Yes, that is what I would suggest doing. I don't know if it will work or not, but there isn't really any other option (or support would have pointed you a different way),
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 6/29/12 12:13 PM
yes well, that's the 200 forms i filled about 2 days ago now then... btw i still can't answer to Sander from the belgian suppor tteam, he said you sent him an email explaining that my mail got caught in the spam filter. but it still gets caught in the filter
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 6/29/12 12:37 PM
Since Sander is aware of the filter problem, it's up to him to get it fixed (if he can).
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/1/12 1:55 AM
ok well so far nothing new, still no monetization tab so no "under review" status
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? budisulistyohartono 7/1/12 2:03 AM
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/1/12 5:11 AM
so how can i tell sander that i can't send him emails if the only way to contact him through e-mails ?

That's the kind of youtube logic that really makes no sense and don't help solving problems...

I started this post june the 12th, i have all the authorizations, the only need thing is that someone look at what i've sent and allows me to monetize that's all, i've given everything needed... so what's the excuse now ?

Not seeing the "under review" or "Monetize" button does not mean your documentation is not being processed.

I have been in similar position a number of times when suddenly the videos are monetized. Sometimes, the "Under review" will just re-appear

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/2/12 2:51 AM
yeah but the monetization tab is deasabled... that's why i am thinking that it's not under review...

spam or not, you'll agree with me, the situation is ridiculous...

I have a monetized video from starcraft 2 on my personnal channel. I didn't need to provide any licence for it.
i upload the very same video on my other channel, it gets blocked and i have to give a licence to monetize it...

And once i've given all the requiered licences, i still can't monetize it (the the video is still up and running well on my personnal channel...

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/4/12 8:04 AM
Ok so Maria from the support team re-enabled my monetization tab back.

BUT

As i was trying to set the last video i uploaded up for monetization, it told me that there was a problem. I followed the link youtube suggested and it told me that my video was previously rejected and that it couldn't be monetized.

As you might have seen earlier, i have all the requiered agreement and licence to monetize the content of my 300 videos.

Therefor, you'll agree with me that Youtube made a huge mistake rejecting all of my 300 videos and that you'll help me un-reject all of my 300 videos so i can monetize them as i should normally be able to with my licence.

well, never mind, maria changed it back :)
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/4/12 9:16 AM
well in fact it's still a bit bugged.

could you tell me why this video couldn't have the option to be monetized ==> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrcQupwbLi8

while this video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3k3533bexE ) from the very same game is already monetized

?

When i tried to enable the monetization it said " Impossible to monetize 1 video "

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/4/12 9:21 AM
it's better with a screenshot :)
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/5/12 12:19 AM
ok so my monetization tab has been desable for the 3rd time during the night.

I checked my emails and there is NOTHING from Adsense giving me reasons why it got desabled.

I've given every licence you requiered WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON ????

>>I checked my emails and there is NOTHING from Adsense giving me reasons why it got desabled.

Unless your AdSense account was disabled, this has nothing to do with AdSense. Monetization of videos is up to YouTube.

could you tell me why this video couldn't have the option to be monetized ==> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrcQupwbLi8

No idea, since I'm not part of YouTube staff.  Did you try providing documentation for that video?

And you have had contact with two YT staffers by email. I'd recommend you continue to discuss this with them.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/5/12 9:57 AM
PeggyK, thanks for the answer.

Regarding the support team, as i said many times before, i can't join "Sander" from the belgian support team becaus emy emails get caught in the spam filter and there is no way for me to tell him about it because well.. it gets caught in the spam filter...

Regarding Maria from the internationnal support team, i've provided her with all the requiered information and she enabled my monetization tab back yesterday afternoon as you can see in my post from yesterday. But when i woke up this morning, the tab was desabled once again for no apparent reasons.

My AdSense is fully operational so it has to be a decision from youtube to desable my monetization tab, why ? No idea ! Didn't get any email giving reasons.

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PeggyK 7/5/12 10:07 AM
So contact Maria again. She may not respond immediately.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/5/12 10:16 AM
i've sent her an email about 9hours ago and i'm now waiting for her to answer.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? David Lundin 7/5/12 10:18 AM
Don't forget a lot of people in the US are on holidays (independence day), so she may not even read her mail until next week.
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/7/12 12:06 PM
Ok so Maria told me yesterday that the engineers from youtube found what the problem was. She re-enabled my monetization tab for the 4th time and, as usual, the morning after, it was desabled for the 5th time.

i sent her an e-mail and i am waiting for her to answer.

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/8/12 2:34 AM
So i sent a message to Maria to explain the problem but due to weekend, i don't expect an answer before monday.

Regarding Sander from the Belgian support team (bepartne...@youtube.com) , i still can't send him e-mails becaus eof the spam filter and so i have no way of contacting him to let him know that i can't contact him 0_à
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/9/12 2:57 PM
ok so Maria told me the engineers are on it. Personnaly i think it has to be with the step4 of the monetization tab, it looks kinda different from my personnal account (on which i'm still monetizing starcraft content btw).
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/12/12 3:28 AM
ok so we are thursday today, according to maria, the youtube engineers should be working on my channel today to have it operational tomorrow... for the 6th test :-/

i'll update tomorrow.

Fun thing is : It's been 1 month today that i started this post :)

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/13/12 12:40 PM
well, friday evening and nothing has changed, that was to be expected i guess...

No news from Maria either nor from Sander :-/

Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/14/12 4:43 AM
staturday afternoon, still nothing. I don't think that anything will be done this weekend anyway
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/15/12 2:37 AM
Sunday morning, nothing will be done today as it is sunday ^^ i've sent a mail to maria from the support team, we"ll see on monday what's going on...
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/16/12 4:15 AM
Monday morning, i might send an e-mail to Maria since i haven't heard from her since a few days, i really hope this will be sorted out soon... well soon it's been over a month hahahaha but you know what i mean ^^
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/16/12 11:01 AM
well, didn't get any answer today, maybe tomorrow  or, as i start to think, never :s
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 7/16/12 11:44 PM
Tuesday morning and still no change and no answer from the support team :s
Re: AdSense and youtube : i have copyright to monetize my content, why desabling my account ? PiouStarcraft 8/1/12 1:57 PM
i'm back from vacation. The monetization tab got re-enabled after youtube's engineers checked it. But just like the 6 previous times, it all fucked up during the night and got desabled for the 7th times
