youtube video deleted for no reason,,,,

    I went to bike week in Daytona beach the other day. They had an outside wet t shirt contest on a stage. I took a video of it and posted it on my youtube page.

    Now you cannot see any real nudity, it's all just sexy fun. Yet they gave me a warning that now my account is not in good standing and the video was deleted.

    YET, there are dozens of the SAME show on there! There also are far, far more revealing and nasty videos on there years old.

    So why the hell was mine taken off an hour after I uploaded it? It makes no sense. Maybe someone does not like me. I did upload a general video of all the bikers and that is fine.

    It makes no sense to flag my video when they have much worst ones on there. Contacting them is a waste of time, once they do something they never change it. Just pisses me off. mad

      Was this on private property?  I do not know about Florida but in Mass it is quite illegal to video or even take a pic of someone without their permission.

        I never thought of that I guess that is a point.

          Like I said, there are dozens of the same show on there, the exact same one. The warning said it was due to nudity, that's all. Sounds like I got flagged by an old granny or something.

            possibly, some get flagged, many don't. you can learn how to do anything on youtube, some videos just don't get flagged.

            I know as far as pic, in the school system, parents can sign a document stating that no pics can be shown to the public without permission, or never.  I have a zillion amazing pics of kids from my classes, but I never use them, plus I think it's crazy to use other children's pics online for any purpose.

      A friend of mine had a great vid up that had some (of his own) nudity and it was up on YouTube (so to speak!) for about a year and then it got suddenly pulled.  A shame, it was a great vid, nude diving off a sailboat.  He came up out of the water with this killer smile and I loved the smile best of all. 

      I don't know why people flag vids they don't like, but you're right that there are some fairly risque ones on there that don't get pulled and I think the hate videos are much much worse than a little nudity.

        As I understand it they only get 'noticed' and pulled if someone complains about it.  From what I see here generally this also relates to WHO flags it, maybe some people are more valuable to the site than others - you upset anyone recently ?

        In the forums I see clear 'hate' posts, I have even flagged one myself but it was not stopped, yet what seem to be reasonable posters with moderate views and normally moderate mouths get banned.  I would like to know how this works as I am outspoken, I like to challenge peoples assumptions etc, and I am being followed around by a troll who has already been banned in one persona.

          ah, this was a friend's vid, not mine and it was pulled by YT itself.  it was never here, just a similar situation as the OP.

          I haven't posted in the forums much really, so I'm out of the loop on most of the drama, although I occasionally read.  I don't know most of the people so it's hard to discern who is doing what to whom.

          I think in general, it has to be remembered that moderators are human and humans can see things subjectively, it's instinctual, so I think fair rarely figures into these kinds of equations.

          Sorry to hear you are being trolled though.  Hope you can avoid or ignore.  I would encourage you to go ahead and report as you need to, that's why the forums has that feature.

      Bill, have you considered using another service. Sure Youtube might be popular but there are better one's out there as well. Personally I use Yahoo and Metacafe, where I get better results then my Youtube vids.

        Hey TerryGI. Yes I have a whole list I will use. I'll keep my youtube ones clean from now on. Thanks.

    Did your check to the youtube monitors get lost in the mail?

      I'm sure your more right than not about that. I've flagged much worst ones that I thought was hate videos and they are still up there. Guess I'll need to keep them nice and clean and put the others on the other tube places, which will get more hits anyway. wink

    That is unfair.. I guess you probably uploaded the video when hub pages admin were on their period so they took it out on you sad

      Bill Manningposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      This was on youtube, not hubpages. Anyway since my youtube channel is geared toward Disney and the theme parks around Orlando I suppose I should keep them all very clean.

      I'll just submit more racy ones to other tube sites that are more relaxed, like college humor and break.com.

    Do you people read YouTube TOS?  This site was created to host videos that are suitable for general audiences, so it is your own fault if something gets deleted that was not supposed to be there in the first place.  Metacafe and Daily Motion allow you to upload videos for adult audiences, so try those sites if YouTube is too rigid for you!
