Recover a Suspended YouTube Channel
Most of you know me by my stage name "Gladius". I am a full time touring solo artist who performs live music around the United States in venues such as libraries, theaters, colleges, clubs etc.
The reason I am starting this petition is that my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/gladiusofficial got suspended without any prior notification/warning and my business completely depends on it and without it I would not be able to survive in the music industry.
Two weeks ago, I received an email from YouTube stating that ‘Due to severe or repeated violations of their community guidelines, my account had been suspended’. All of my embedded videos are gone, my video files disappeared, I cannot access my account, and years and years of work is suddenly gone.
I read through the guidelines and I am absolutely certain that I hadn’t done anything wrong. I did file an appeal but received an automated response saying that my account was still going to remain suspended. Once again they sent me a link to their guidelines page. There was no prior notification or warning of any sort, they just sent me an email and shutdown my channel.
All my performance videos that I recorded since the start of my career were only uploaded to my YouTube channel and because of the suspension I lost control of all my videos (You may have noticed a couple of videos are uploaded to a new temporary Channel)
It's not simply a matter of starting a new account but rather establishing a subscriber base. My most recent video EL Matador ( released earlier this year) was just about to hit 40,000 views, by far a new record for my channel and the subscriber count was really starting to take off...
I have tried contacting the company through emails, through community forums, online help center, as they do not provide any support via phone or chat but there is zero response from them.
This is my last hope to start a petition and get it signed by as many users as I could and hopefully get the attention of YouTube management as there is absolutely no other way to get hold of a human in that company otherwise.
I would greatly appreciate if you would take a minute to sign the petition, as this seems to be the last hope to recover my YouTube channel.
Thanks in advance!
