YouTube Changes Now Allows Creators to Remove Content Violation Strikes
August 31, 2023
In a long-form post released to the YouTube Official Blog on Aug. 29, the platform announced a new update to its Community Guidelines warning process, which marks a new change for digital content creators and YouTubers.
Under these latest community guidelines, YouTube creators who have received a violation warning can now repent through – an educational policy training course.
Upon completion of the course, YouTube will then remove the content warning from their channel and continue to monitor the creator’s output for the next 90 days. Should the creator commit another violation within the period, the original strike will be reinstated, and the video(s) in question will be removed from their channel.
Still, the repeat offender is still allowed to undergo the training course and 90-day surveillance process once again, in order to wipe off the scarlet violation warning. Still, the streaming giant won’t relax their ‘three-strikes’ policy, which sees to banning creators who have committed three strikes within a period of 90 days.
While previously, creators were marked for life upon the issuance of a policy violation warning, they are now allowed more chances to clean their state and will only be flagged for each individual, specific warning.
“We believe this update will help the vast majority of creators who strive to produce content that complies with our Community Guidelines, and will help keep YouTube a safe and responsible platform for everyone,” YouTube asserts.
