A new policy that YouTube has revealed enables producers to get rid of warnings for breaking community rules by participating in educational training programs.
For the first time, YouTube is offering a standardized procedure for getting warnings removed with this release.
What’s Changing, Check out
YouTube penalizes videos and channels for breaking rules like spamming, phishing, violent/graphic material, and copyright infringement. A channel’s ability to publish fully monetized videos may be lost after obtaining a strike. In the event of repeated offenses, YouTube may close the channel.
YouTube is aware that receiving strikes can be upsetting, especially for creators whose revenue comes from advertising. Previously, channel owners could only receive one warning during the course of their existence. The individual warnings people get under the new system will depend on the rules they break specifically.
This strategy allows creators to comprehend why their work might have exceeded the boundary. After obtaining a warning for a first offense, creators can now enroll in a training course. The warning will be taken off their channel after 90 days of not breaking the same rule.
More Information Regarding The Courses
Each course is made to give artists a clearer understanding of the kinds of content that are prohibited by YouTube standards.
For instance, YouTube has policies banning sexual and dirty content. The rules do not, however, apply to educational content.
If a creator doesn’t include enough instructional context in a sexual health video they upload, they risk breaking YouTube’s rules. A course on the rules they violate can be taken by the creator under YouTube’s new policy.
Unchanged YouTube Community Rules
YouTube made it clear that, despite the fact that these educational courses are new, its Community Guidelines and three-strikes policy remain in place.
Any content that transgresses YouTube’s rules will continue to be taken down, and creators who receive three strikes in a 90-day period risk being fired.
YouTube’s rules addressing serious or recurring content violations remain the same even for creators who have finished training programmes. The ability to enroll in future training sessions may be suspended for repeat offenders.
