YouTube has all the time had an advanced relationship with its creators, having to implement penalties for rule-breaking channels on the platform. The issues come when the ne’er-do-wells get combined up with the law-abiding channels, which is not a uncommon incidence. Now YouTube is testing out a brand new method for harmless creators to enchantment channel suspensions — and it seems like much more work.

A small variety of creators with suspended channels within the YouTube Accomplice Program can now add an enchantment video to offer YouTube a visible plea for lifting the fees towards them. The YPP coverage group will reevaluate the suspended channel after viewing the enchantment video, and if the brand new proof sufficiently exhibits compliance with YouTube’s insurance policies, monetization can be reinstated for the channel earlier than the top of the 30-day suspension interval.

Whereas it appears slightly unusual to ask creators to place time into scripting, taking pictures, enhancing, and importing a whole video simply to justify themselves to the YouTube overlords, it’s going to be fascinating to see how the YouTube neighborhood reacts to the check. Although this check is barely out there to a share of customers proper now, the corporate hopes to develop it sooner or later.

YouTube is a spot for video creators, so possibly they’d reasonably produce a video enchantment than write out a pair paragraphs in textual content — who is aware of? One factor’s for certain: this could make the YouTube coverage overview group’s job much more entertaining.
