I don't understand why my account was terminated, how can I get in touch with a human reviewer?
0
Heyo!

Few days ago I got my account terminated while cleanup. I had a lot of old public and not public videos on my channel and started to mark all of them as unlisted until I can review each one and remove it if it's the case. Somehow my account was terminated while switching the videos to unlisted. There should be something I triggered by doing that.

I tried to appeal several times, asking for more details and the only think I receive is that the account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of Community Guidelines on Nudity and Sexual content. Now I'm really sure that I didn't upload any porn or erotic content, like ever. But something in the old videos must be considered sexual.

In the last few years all I posted were traffic videos and hikings I did in the mountains, nothing even related to that guidelines. 
I know that before terminating, you should get three strikes in the past six months. In my case I don't remember to have any. I had some in the past due to some copyrights (background music) but I removed those videos and tried to avoid this kind of situations since then.

Now I'm not sure why my account was terminated and if it was really severe. How can I get in touch with a human for more information? Every appeal end with the same exact automated message.

Thanks!

If you used a clickbait thumbnail that contains 18+ content it could be considered 18+
you could be banned for the excessiveness of that.

Hello Andrew! 

Thanks for your help. I already tried to submit that form twice with the same result (same result, same message).
More than that, now I see that on the red banner says "prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten.". Not the same thing as received in the emails. 
Not sure if I should insist with the form or not. I don't really want to spam with same message all over again.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to get in contact with a human reviewer in this forum. The members of this forum are all volunteers and nobody here can reinstate your channel or see why exactly YouTube terminated your channel. However, if you share your channel's URL, we might be able to find a cache so that we can take a look, although we won't be able to view your videos or see your thumbnails.

Based on your description, your videos from the past few years sound innocuous. Did you post any videos before that? If so, did they contain anything that could've violated this policy? Did any genitalia feature in any of your videos, or any references to genitalia? Contrary to popular belief, YouTube doesn't need to give you three strikes before terminating your channel, YouTube channels can be terminated for just one infraction if the offence is serious enough (e.g severe spam or involuntary pornography).

Hi Josh, Shorcutgamez

I don't really know what were all the videos about. I had a lot of videos with temporary purpose that I forgot to remove. Most of them were updated only for sharing once with someone. I had videos uploaded like ten years ago that I don't remember what were they about.
I don't know what "severe" means to youtube but since I was able to upload them in the past I don't think it can be considered severe. And I'm pretty sure that even if it was against rules, it wasn't public (someone should have reported it in all those years).
And no, there was no clickbait. I'm pretty sure that the video that caused all of this was not meant for public visibility so there was no custom thumbnail and no clickbait.
