Suspended Accounts & Community Guidelines

By The YouTube Team

Hi there! Hope you all had a good weekend. I wanted to start the week with a quick clarification about Damien Estreich’s role. Some YouTubers are under the impression that Damien is able to suspend accounts or feature videos. While we rely on our Community Advocate for many things – most notably to be out there listening to what the YouTube community needs and wants – these two things are not part of his super powers. So if your account has been suspended and you’re wondering why, check out the Community Guidelines to get up to speed on YouTube etiquette. The guidelines have all the details, but in a nutshell they ask that you use common sense and respect copyright and each other. Read ’em carefully, and live by them.

Have a great week,
YouTube Team
