Last Friday, I received a Google account security alert and was not able to access my Gmail account. After logging into my Google account, I discovered that my YouTube channel was randomly terminated with a similarly opaque reason for termination. I have written to both Google and YouTube regarding this, but I have yet to receive any response.
Therefore, a fellow fan made this cool image to help get the word out to anyone who follows my work. If you’d like to help me get my channel back, there are a few things that you can do. Just follow the directions in the image below:
When you go to my YouTube channel, you can also select Email–> Channel & Video Features to create a ticket in which they will respond to in a couple days (I didn’t know about this feature, so I will try it, too!!).
**I should also mention**
I was not given any specific reason for this termination besides the automated message that’s displayed on my channel:
“This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.”
I have used YouTube for years and some of my videos are quite old. My account has been on good standing and I don’t believe that this action was justified.
There were also a ton of old videos like the first couple days when I got my gorgeous cat Misa, personal videos that have a lot of sentimental value.
I should have most of them backed up somewhere, but they’re quite old and I know I lost a lot of data when my laptop hard drive died… I know some of these videos only existed on my channel. Yes, it was my fault for not backing them up, but you do get conditioned with a false sense of security when you upload stuff. It’s beyond heartbreaking for something like this to happen for no reason and potentially not be able to recover the content. I’m really hoping that at least something can be salvaged.
Here’s a link to my channel:
And many thanks to Marce for making this image and already getting people to help!!!
