YouTube Offers a New Guided Support Process for Violations of Community Guidelines
YouTube is working on a new, more thorough reporting procedure for creators who have been struck with guideline violations, which will guide them through the details of the issue with their material and what they can do to fix it.
As seen in this example, the updated process will provide you additional details on each violation, including what it implies for your content's exposure and monetization, before walking you through the next steps for resolving the problem.
The review process identifies the problematic aspect and allows creators to modify the clip to remedy the issue(s).
The last part allows creators to easily request a second review if they believe the report is inaccurate, as well as give extra contextual information for YouTube in regard to the violation reported.
It's a welcome move, since many YouTube producers have expressed dissatisfaction with the platform's existing reporting process, which has resulted in numerous videos being erroneously fined. Violations are also reported using a generic email template that provides minimal detail.
YouTube's automated detection systems are constantly improving and assisting it in various ways to clean up its platform, and this new, guided system will serve the opposite side of that push by providing creators with a more direct route to understanding each infraction and what they can do about it.
All creators will be able to use the guided policy process on the desktop version of YouTube Studio, and it will be available for all strikes, video deletions, and age restriction violations to begin with.
According to YouTube, the feature is being rolled out this week and will be available to everyone by the end of the month.
