In Regards to my YouTube Issues

Hi! So, here’s a message to my followers or people who want to know why I’m stuck on this dumb alternative channel now (it’s called “main_iv” for pun reasons, I go by “main_gi” usually). Ideally, I want a support staff member to actually explain something – but looking at just how many unanswered threads there are on Google forums and on Reddit, the chances seem to lower by the day. If you don’t care, you can just click off.

TL;DR: Channel suspended in a really odd way that makes it seem completely unintentional, without the way to reach out to people. I’ve moved a bit over to another channel. https://vid.me/main_gi

In about May, or something – I don’t recall the date, I started a secondary channel, because I just wasn’t fond of “forcing” myself to produce main channel content, and they were often low quality. This channel contained about 10-second stuff, to about a minute – maybe longer if it’s original music, which I compose.

Then, I believe about 2 weeks later, on May 2nd (2016), it was suspended for a Terms of Service violation. Which one? It doesn’t say. I don’t know. I still have the link to the channel’s old link here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX-etc9QZVEtZvcm5Qi_hfw

I got NO EMAIL for this. I posted it on Reddit, which is a community media/thing aggregator site. However, unfortunately, I think the site may have seen this post /too much/ – when I see these types of posts, they rarely get traction. https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/4hk7s4/hi_i_guess_im_here_to_join_the_has_a_randomly/

Of course, I wasn’t going to let that pass, so I sent a message to support. Around 10 days later, still no response, so I contacted a YouTube employee on Reddit. This, I honestly appreciate – if you’ve got your channel terminated/blocked what have you like me, maybe you’ll have better luck. I got a response back, on May 18…

…in the form of losing my channel’s access.

This is why I won’t be sending any more requests to YouTube support, as it’s clearly having the opposite effect. Before it was terminated, though, I tried to put all my secondary channel videos on a third channel, “main_iii”: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzM4-i3SLngKTr5LUw0u5iQ/videos. I couldn’t keep them all though, since I hit the limit for phone verifications (so I couldn’t put >15 minute videos up on the channel). I once again sent this on Reddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/4jzrlh/first_my_secondary_account_is_suspended_now_i/

I think what this proves really, is that this is just completely random nonsense. Who ever heard of a single channel part of an account getting terminated, then the access removed, but the rest is still up?

So, that’s the whole situation with why I need this dumb thing. I don’t know if I’ll necessarily be keeping so much in one basket, but I already have a couple things up on another site, called https://vid.me/main_gi – it’s got original content.
