Community Guidelines: YouTube’s Rules of the Road (Part 1)

Community Guidelines: YouTube’s Rules of the Road (Part 1)


Hey!
I’m Kelly from YouTube. Ever scratch your head about
all the various guidelines YouTube has? Ever wonder “What’s the difference
between Community Guidelines Copyright, YPP,
and Advertiser-friendly guidelines?” Have you ever had a video removed
by YouTube and you weren’t sure why? Well stick around, because
in this series of three short videos we’ll sort it all out for you. As a YouTube Creator, there are a few different sets
of guidelines and policies that are important to understand. If you just want to post videos, it’s important to know
about our YouTube Community Guidelines and basic Copyright law. If you want to make money on YouTube, there are a few more things
you should understand. Like our YouTube Partner Program policies
and our Advertiser-friendly guidelines. Ok, so let’s start with
YouTube’s Community Guidelines; a set of common-sense rules for
what is and isn’t allowed on our platform. These are mostly rules you’d expect, like “Don’t harass others
or post ultra-violent videos” but they also include
some YouTube-specific rules you might not have thought of like not posting
a bunch of repetitive comments. So definitely take time to review them. And remember, the Community Guidelines
apply to everything you do on YouTube: posting videos, comments, thumbnails…
you name it. If you do violate
our Community Guidelines, you’ll get a warning
the first time it happens. After that, if it happens again, you’ll receive
a Community Guidelines strike. But don’t worry,
strikes expire after 90 days and over 90% of Creators
never get more than 1 strike. That said, if you get 3 strikes
in a 90-day period, you’re out and your account will be terminated. If you do post something
that crosses the line, we’ll send you an email letting you know and also give you information
on how to appeal if you think a mistake was made. But, what about using
someone else’s music in your video? Would that give you
a Community Guidelines strike? No.
But it could get you a Copyright strike. Oh. So they’re different from
Community Guidelines? Yeah. You mind if I sit? Thanks. Hey. I’m Matt. And in part two of this three-part series
I’ll give you an overview of Copyright. Click this endscreen to come on over.

  21. Thanks for your guidlines …🙏🙏it's help alot

  22. Give me 100 like and 1000 subscribes

  23. Bagaimana Caranya, agar channel saya cepat berkembang.

  24. I mean it's great that they have done this. It does mean that they have listened a bit to what we have said. Thanks youtube for clearing this up. However on my channel anyway analytics have been bugging out a lot where sometimes no views come up for the first half an hour and then 100 are added at the same time shortly after. I know this is very minor but again thanks for this

  25. Like👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👉👉👉

  26. Thanks for the info I have had my channel for just over a month now and have been trying to make sure I stick to the community guidelines on my channel at the moment I'm on 320 subscribers hoping to get to 1000 soon I think these videos are great for us new creators.

  27. YouTube here's something us customers wanted to get clear long ago (THIS was NEVER about not knowing the rules this was ALWAYS about the current rules policies and systems need to GO ever since YouTube has been on its downward spiral of censorship from 2016 and beyond this is NOT merely the loudest voices this is the MAJORITY STANCE)
    …wow these corporations really are disconnected idiots I hope someone gets them to stop screwing us over

  28. Are you going to do a video explaining how the FTC attack is going to affect creators

  29. WoW thanks for throwing light on community guidelines i got it but My only concern now is why youtube taking so long for reviewing my channel atleast they have to communicate with us frequently i think in this way creator should get more encouraged and he or she then produce more stunning content by holding a channel in review for longer period only creeps more frustration nothing else.

  30. I absolutely love this channel. Thank you for briefing us on the important 411!

  31. Thanks for info avoiding to break community guidelines. God bless .

  32. WAW. VERDADE E BOM APRENDERMOS. OBRIGADO. BJSSS

  33. That's right. Get in there and mansplain the sitch =P

  34. Very useful video sister

  35. No I’ve never had a video pulled, I had one video said that it wasn’t suitable for ads, one said it had a child in it, it was me, I’m not a child. One video contained copyrighted music, but it wasn’t a strike, once a company tried to copyright strike and they removed it when I threatened a lawsuit for knowingly trying to copyright strike music that they had nothing to do with, it was the same song, with a different arrangement, tempo, length and slightly different notes, I had full License from company who actually created it. Needless to say they took that down and sent me an apology email.

  36. Thank you YouTube creators. Great explanation!

  37. I’ve had seven videos deleted due to a privacy complaint which had to have been a bogus one. I’m not getting anywhere at all with getting them reinstated. 🙁

  38. Hi Kelly this is the first awesome video i see after many years from Youtube Creators, finally this video rocks hope you and the others continue on this road !!! Hugs roel 😉

  39. Miy bien explicado 👍

  40. YAALLAH, SEMOGA BISA JUGA MASUK CHANNELKU…DAN PUNYA KALIAN. AMIN

  41. Thank you YouTube!💗

  42. Thank you for sharing !

  43. Should be: rules and guidelines for YouTube-
    We are a PUBLIC PLATFORM with exemptions courtesy of the American public and taxpayers. As a PUBLIC PLATFORM with these exemptions we will encourage and not hinder public discourse in any way. We are the digital town square/ press as a platform. We are now announcing that all of our censorship tools and weapons will be immediately disengaged and all who have fallen victim reinstated immediately. We now understand that free speech is/means free speech for all, not just for those who share our cultist authoritarian ideology.
    Again we are a platform and do not want to play publisher any longer, we enjoy those exemptions. We wholeheartedly apologize for shating all over your God given rights Americans, please forgive us!
    Our rules are the Bill of rights and the laws governing the land. No more holier than thou tyranny, we promise.

  44. Dear YouTube partner program,
    My channel has been reached more than 28763 hours watch time, and have more than 12807 subscribers in previous 12 months, and getting more every single day kindly monetize my channel immediately, because my channel is stuck in under review of past 3 months, YouTube partner program says we will email you within month or so, but i didn't get any email yet from you guys,
    Kindly NOTE it with humble request,
    I have no used videos, i have no copyright issue, i have no borderline videos, i have no background music, i have no stolen videos, also i have no private videos too, even nothing against Community Guidelines of YPP and my entire videos are made by me of my own self tutorial videos of cooking recipes, people love to watch my all videos,
    So kindly let me know the reason why it's so late ? i would love to be patient if you guys will put it in my knowledge with an Email.
    Thank you very much 🙂

  45. *YOUTUBE partner program should stop lie to new creators and they also should stop showing green garden

  46. You forgot to mention that they are haphazardly applied and that there is no way to find out why or how your video violated.

  47. Lier people always lieing with small and new creators, when you will be achieved 4K watch time hours and 1 k sub, then they will become deaf and will close all door for creators, FAKE YPP FAKE YPP FAKE YPP,

  48. Video of the hour thanks for the info.

  49. Listen wrong videos should not be uploaded. That will be stopped at processing time. Problem solved

  50. I think this video is a re-upload

  51. This video series seems insulting. You talk to us like idiots and you won't be able to answer any real questions like why can't you tell us what caused a video to be demonitized and why, even after an appeal, monetization was still denied. If someone manually reviewed it is it too hard to give us one reason, even if it isn't the most pressing?

  52. Like it 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  53. Youtube- "Please make family friendly content, kids are here!" Also Youtube- "Oh my gosh, kids aren't supposed to be here! So if kids watch your videos we are gonna take most of your revenue and bury your content!" Please make a video going over how you are the FTC is making you decimate kid friendly content, and how that will affect all creators. And please go back and renegotiate with the FTC. If we have to have different ads that is one thing, but not having notifications is awful for not only creators, but viewers. I watch family friendly reborn channels as an adult, but since they are dolls YouTube is gonna treat me like a child and not send me the notifications I've subscribed to. Plus all of my over 600k subs I've worked years to get aren't going to know when I upload something. And the AI looking for kids content will misfire just like the demonetization bot. This will affect all creators. Seems it would be easier to add a disclaimer when you go on YT that if you are under 13 to go to the kids app and if you let your child on the regular YouTube then you have to accept targeted ads. The way the FTC wants you to do it could kill the entire platform.

  54. Hi. You tube Team, Thanks for guidance, As per Monetization Policy my channel achieved required number of subscribers and watch time. but for the last 3 to 4 months my channel is under review. In my all videos i appear by my self…. plz monetize my channel. Thanks and Regards.
