Everything is gone from my account! Every video that I've posted is gone. Luckily I back up all of my vlogs to an external hard drive so I still have them. All of my history, playlists, and favorites are GONE! I've searched for different ways to get my account back. I filled out useless online forms that generate the same lame reply. Do any humans work for YouTube?
Until I can sort this out my channel is on pause. I'm still recording daily vlogs and Filofax videos. I just have no where to put them.
I also don't understand why I'm prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other YouTube accounts. Are you kidding me! I barely watch TV anymore. So I've been accessing from another account. I'm not sure if I want to reload everything there and risk getting shut down again.
I was so surprised by the number of people who tweeted @Youtube asking them to reinstate my account.
When I figure out what I'm doing to do I promise to update you. I'm going to end it here before I get upset again and go into a childish full on temper tantrum.
If your wondering why I'm banned. I think it has to do with an incident that took place over the summer. My channel was botted. Some spammer or machine viewed a handful of my video's 1,000's of times one video had over 10,000 views. YouTube figured out that those weren't legit views because it happened quickly within the span of a few hours and the countries where the views came from were inconsistent with where my views usually come from. This resulted in strikes against my account. I did not bot my own channel but "I'm responsible for everything that happens on my channel (bots, spammers etc), according to YouTube. I also had a copyright issue from my friends wedding but I acknowledged it, removed that video and re uploaded it.
If anyone knows how to get in touch with YouTube, please let me know.
