I received an email about the suspension being reversed on my channel, it’s now active and operational, and YouTube has confirmed a video I posted is not in violation of their Terms and Service. I’m confused as to why I still can’t upload any videos. Each time I attempt to upload a video, I receive a message that reads “Due to Community Guidelines strikes, you cannot upload videos at this time”.
The team has restored the channel, but they say that the warning and the 2 strikes will remain. They have provided the following:
Our Community Guidelines (http://youtube.com/t/community_guidelines) describe what content is and is not allowed on YouTube. Due to the volume of material uploaded to YouTube, we cannot prescreen content; instead, we learn of possible violations of our policies either through our flagging system or via legal complaints. We review flagged videos quickly, removing or restricting material in accordance with those Guidelines.
YouTube is not the place for nudity, pornography or other sexually provocative content. YouTube makes limited exceptions for appropriate educational, documentary, artistic and scientific contexts, but only in limited circumstances where the purpose of posting is clear. For example, a documentary on breast cancer would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the documentary might not be. When uploading a video, we ask users to make sure to post as much information as possible in the title and description to help us and your viewers determine the primary purpose of the video.
More information about the Nudity policy can be found in our Policy Centre here: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2802002.
