YouTube’s appeal process seen as largely ineffective

YouTube’s latest transparency report suggests its appeals process is largely ineffective for creators. Last quarter, the platform removed 5.9 million videos. Of the 108,779 appeals it received, it reinstated only 23,471, meaning 78% of appeals were rejected. This comes amid calls by creators for more transparency around the video removal appeals process.

YouTube should change their name to leftist oligarch tube, they are fake news promoters and truth silencers

Just got access to the thinkspot beta (Jordan Peterson's YouTube alternative) today. Will be interesting to see how that works out.

You tube will die soon, people are waking to their pathetic attempts at censoring factual news and anything that doesn’t align with their globalist “values”. Same with Reddit ,Twatter and wastebook, stop using them and move on.

I've had three comments pulled from NewsVoice. There's no specific explanation for how they violated its terms, no means for appeal. It appears to be a very thin skinned mod who follows me around looking for comments exposing the LGBTPQ+ Mafia™️. NewsVoice needs to be better than this.

I've found videos banned from YT on Bit chute but only after the channel's creator informed me. Most channels back up their videos knowing full well they could be demonized.

YT is getting stale and boring now, getting harder and harder to find decent content.

That's because it absolutely is! YouTube takedowns are a scam. They are mostly a huge loophole for backdoor censorship. The rest of them are for unscrupulous companies to steal ad revenue with false copyright claims.

Of course it is. It's run by left wing fanatics with a political agenda.

As a gun content creator, I can tell you it’s a crapshoot—at least as far as monetization is concerned. When I upload a gun review it immediately gets demonetized. When I ask for a manual review, it gets confirmed demonetized. BUT... if I delete the video and do it all over again, sometimes it gets approved for monetization. The problem is they’ve got hundreds, or thousands of people manually reviewing videos, and they all have different standards for what’s acceptable and what isn’t. The rules may be clear, but people are interpreting them in wildly different ways, and there’s no appeal once your video is confirmed demonetized. The same is true with videos that are removed.
