Being a Youtuber, it becomes quiet difficult when you receive a guidelines strike. YouTube’s changing policies and strict rules makes it difficult for a YouTuber to create content of his need. Community Guidelines strike happens when you have not followed their guidelines.
What are the reasons for community guidelines strikes ?
- Nudity or sexual content, especially child nudity.
- Harmful or dangerous content
- Hateful content
- Violent or graphic content
- Harassment and cyberbullying
- Spam, misleading metadata, and scams
- Child Safety
- Additional policies
About Community Guideline Strike we Received.
We also received a strike when we used an image of a tribes which includes nudity. The first strike serves as a warning and it will never expire. From next time onward on Real First strike you will not able to upload video for 1 week. Even though there are 100 of videos on YouTube which involves tribes and nudity, because for showing real life that is only the possible way. After the recent COPPA update, it strictly checks child nudity and anything related to child content. We received a community guideline strike on policy of “Child safety”
You may also receive a strike if someone comments like “look at the nude tribe”. So it is important that you need to keep content, content, title, description and even comments clean.
How to Appeal to Community Guideline Strike ?
You can appeal to the community guideline strike within the dashboard of YouTube. You should state reasons why they need to reinstate the video content with valid reasons. You should appeal within 7 days of getting the strike/warning.
