As some of you may have already noticed, my youtube channel got terminated! What happened?
Well, I got two warnings for “nudity and/or sexual” content regarding videos for the maskripper blog. These warnings last 3 months.
I was very carefull (I thought) with these videos not to show nudity. For many weeks nothing happened. The first of these two strikes/warnings would have been gone in just 5 days….
But yesterday, I received the 3rd and final warning. Now my youtube channel is gone. I’m still not 100% sure why I received these warnings, but it seems that even a harmless unmasking scene or a fight scene may already be some sort of sexual content in the eyes of the youtube folks. Even if you don’t show skin. I guess I should have been more carefull and deleted every video where a woman is in any kind of peril to be on the safe side.
But where to start? Youtube never had a problem with all these scuba video where women were drowning or people tried to drown a woman. You can only guess were the line is that says, that is ok and that is not ok. Very frustrating.
I don’t know if youtube checks videos on their own, or they just act if someone reports the video. All the warnings I got were for videos that were unlisted on youtube. That means that normally only people who visit my blog can see them….. Perhaps someone wanted my youtube channel dead, I don’t know.
Not hard to guess, that I’m pretty……sad/annoyed/angry/mad about this termination. The channel had around 250 listed and unlisted videos. It was a lot of work to upload all that stuff. Without my youtube channel both blogs are heavily “damaged”. Ok, all the articles, pictures and “foreign” youtube videos are still there, but most of the posts have lost their main piece.
For starters I have two new youtube channels for the VIP videos of Maskripper and Frogwoman of this month. So, in the future, each blog will have their own channel.
But I don’t know how to proceed. Uploading all these videos again is a huge pile of work with tags, descriptions, a good front image, the uploading itself, the linking etc. etc.
If I do that, it may be a good thing in the long run to have these two new channels with their own identity and name. Much better than just the one old channel with that unfitting name.
But, I already started to re-upload the videos to the new channels. The blog will go on…
