Our channels were unfairly blocked at YouTube

Hello! We are – Vera and Nikolay, nice to meet you!

We are not ‘typical’ youtubers and it was the reason why YouTube banned our channels without proper investigation.

For a 5 years already we are full-time youtubers and every day we film 5-10 videos at our ~50 youtube channels – about all topics in which we are interested in our life. And YouTube is our life! Among our channels is ‘Shkola Bloggera’ (translation from Russian – “Blogger’s School”) – https://www.youtube.com/shkolabloggera , biggest educational Russian-speaking channel about YouTube (93.000 subscribers). All our channels got ~350.000 subscribers total.

Week ago 37 of our channels (each of them <6000 subscribers) were AUTOMATICALLY blocked by mistake. All other our channels which got >6000 subscribers wasn’t affected and still active.

We’ve sent an appeals for our channels, but all of them were REJECTED.

It’s just a huge mistake. We completed courses at Creator Academy and visited several seminars in Russian office of Google; also we visited several YouTube Space Moscow events, YouTube managers know us personally and we had their consultations for our channels! We are not spammers (you could see it via our YT channels statistics), we do not have any spam, robots, spiders and other automated systems to gain views, subscribers, etc. We follow community guidelines very carefully. We are very positive and don’t have any hate, harassment or impersonation, predatory behavior or spam in our videos! We do not have any forbidden content at our videos, we do not have children in our videos. For almost 5 years we work with this channels and they still do not have big audience – it’s because we have only ‘organic’ growth. Only channels with <6000 subscribers were blocked; our ‘big’ channels wasn’t affected.

Please help to solve this problem! Youtube is the only thing which we love to do and it feels very cruel to have such unfair ‘reward’ for all years we worked so hard!

All our channels got useful and kind videos, for example, among blocked channels there is ‘AgroPrognoz’ ( https://www.youtube.com/agroprognozru ) – the biggest (1700 subscribers, a lot for such community) Russian-speaking YouTube channel about agriculture and soil science. There are absolutely no reasons to block it. Also it’s strange that our other, English-speaking channel about soil science – ‘SoilMap’ isn’t blocked ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsniV3tyDTOU8cTUP2SMTJg ).

Finally, please notice, that all our ‘big’ (6000+) YouTube channels are still active and have good reputation, only channels with <6000 subscribers were AUTOMATICALLY terminated; but we equally follow YouTube rules and guidelines at all our channels – small and big-ones. So it is certainly an error.

Just some more information about us to explain why we have so many channels. We are artists and make a lot of different stuff like painting, writing books, playing musical instruments. At the same time we are very active in sports, we like to travel a lot. That’s why we made decision to start a lot of YouTube channels. Also a few facts about us:
– we both are PhD in Biology and authors of 20+ scientifical articles (our last scientific works were about YouTube statistics). We are authors of two science books and planning to write one more soon – about YouTube (based at experience of our channel about blogging – https://www.youtube.com/shkolabloggera )
– we work as web-developers and graphical designers
– sometimes we writing not scientific articles to different magazines and newspapers (about games, ecology & etc). Also we started to write fiction books. Example – http://shtukensia.com/thisis/mybooks/office/
– we are musicians, Nik is rock band leader, guitar teacher (his channel ‘Gitarka’ – https://www.youtube.com/gitarka got 50.000+ subscribers). Also he is dj and write electronic music.

And it’s not everything… That’s why we have so many YouTube channels. Each channel is unique for us and dedicated to specific topic from our life.

Please help and report this problem to programmers at Google, this isn’t typical problem, it could happen again and again with innocent people! This is automatic block without any reasons, it’s appeared only because we work at a lot on our youtube channels at the same time – but it’s not a crime or breaking the rules – we monetize our videos to make YouTube successful together with us!

Please help!

Kind regards,
Vera (Shukensia) & Nikolay (GameGlaz)
