by YouTube Help • 2,021,812 views

Got questions about how to flag a video on YouTube? Check out this video.

This video is from fucking 2008. Youtube why is this still your main video on flagging. Why hasn't it been fucking updated? 6 years is a HELL of a lot of time, especially on the internet.

There needs to be an option when flagging comments to cover the Fundies who keep posting 'Jesus loves you' on every video they can find, regardless of whether it is on topic or not.

You know what I especially love about this system? Falsely flagged videos, channels and comments usually get deleted, while videos, channels and comments flagged for actually violating the guidelines are left untouched. The system works so well /sarcasm

Why too many negative votes?

Hey assholes! My video was taken down, and it was just suggestive. Fuck you.

+CelsiusPro Celsius I think what nobody actually likes is the really annoying ones that spam it constantly and have high levels of unmanaged autism (I have it but in small doses.) It's unfortunate that's a LOT of us though so the ones who aren't get lumped in with the others and get our videos flagged for no reason.

Why I get two strikes, because I upload some PES boots to show peoples how they look TWO YEARS AGO!!! I don't know what to do now just because someone don't like my videos doesn't mean that he can report them !! Does anyone know how to delete this guidelines ??

Why can't I report a user that trying to give people virus? Their's one guy that post links and then turn off replies, and have multiply account say "thanks it saved me a lot of money", with a lot of likes. Why isn't there a option for reporting that.

+WiIl iAm hEffer +Oshi Shikigami  I have gotten away from referring to the 1st Amendment, or the Constitution in general, when eXpressing about natural inalienable human "rights".  The Reason being I understand that the Constitution is FOR the government and has little to nothing to do with my human rights, or Freedoms granted to me by virtue of me being born a human being.  The "protections" allegedly afforded me by that document [law governing the government] do not seem to be working out as originally intended by the creators of that corporate charter.   There is little doubt that the current mindset of most Americans is the result of several generations being subjected to the Socialist Collective Agenda and the Mindbenders that perpetuate that particular delusion.    This foolish notion that we are all "equal" has created a false paradigm in American society.  It has led to the equally absurd notion that we all have the power of the mob to dictate to the minority or that fraction of the population that offends us.  A very dangerous delusion [insanity] that threatens the very foundations of Freedom.

In a free society people should be allowed to watch what ever they feel they want to watch. Weather it be Nudity, something I like to watch ^_^  or even wack off to 2 girls and one cup, someting I dont understand but As long as you still control what you want to and dont want to watch everybody gets what they want. Basically what im saying is HOW DARE YOU DEMONETIZE ONE OF MY VIDEOS YOU FLAGLOTS!!!!!!
Report spam or abuse
To be fair, you are uploading video to THEIR servers, therefore, they kind of get whatever power you may have over the content.

Report spam or abuse
Does anyone here know if a video can be removed based on the comments people are saying in the video page?  I think that's why one of my videos was removed; there was some RP'ing going on, and I did catch one that included derogatory words....but if I have to be responsible for what people say in my videos, that'd feel like such BS.  I don't delete comments because I don't want to come off being a dick.  I post videos, and the comments section allows people to say whatever they want. I seriously hope this isn't the case.  My video was removed on grounds of violation of guidelines towards nudity & sexual content, but concerning the latter, all that was shown was buttocks.  The video was meant to be comedic in general. My two-week suspension ends next week, but I'm on strike for probably 9 months, so when I return, I'll have to tread lightly.  Say what you want, but I have every right to be paranoid because of these unexpected circumstances.
Report spam or abuse
+2minutesHD Thank you for the response.  Though still, in my opinion, the video's removal was kind of lame on YouTube's part, because the video wasn't sexual or sensual at all, regardless of how anyone might have interpreted it. :/

GO FUCK YOURSELF MOTHERFUCKER .   I CLEARLY HAVE A FULL DISCLAIMER IN BIG RED LETTERS ON SCREEN this video is for  educational and documentary purposes only and shouldn’t be designed to help or encourage others to imitate what you see.   fuck you and stop deleting my videos

The problem with this system is it's abused by trolls. People will flag videos from youtubers they don't like just to get their videos and channel taken down. The system is broke. I'd rather have no system  at all than this broken one. It's bullshit.

I understand the rule, but why flag videos and strike channels that do not violate any guideline just because people flag them? How bout some support to say why videos get banned instead of saying they arbitrarily violate one of your numerous rules.

I agree some people get flag because a video is too short

Videos that should be flagged: Screamers Creepypastas YTPs In fact YouTube should crack down on Screamers because they are not funny and they can cause a heart attack 
Report spam or abuse
That's your opinion. Screamers are so 2007, you don't see them anymore, and if you do then you must be pretty gullible. (Also I disagree about YTPs, that's a dick move and people enjoy them. If you cut to say they're sexually explicit or whatever, you cannot take a joke and not all of them are like that..)

I understand. That's why some of the erotic stuff is censored. Things that involed real-life gore, rape, or censored ochinchins (Japanese for... You know what) is illigal.

If YouTube actually fully implemented all these guidelines against videos out there... this website wouldn't be half as entertaining as it is... There's seriously so many videos of violence on YouTube... and they're so popular... so many hits.
