"Just-in-Time" Learning About Flagged Videos

Sometimes it happens. You've read the Community Guidelines, you think you understand the rules, and you upload videos that you believe comply with them. Then one day you receive a message from us informing you that one of your videos has "been disabled for violation of the YouTube Community Guidelines."



"Huh?" you ask yourself. "What's the connection between the Community Guidelines and my video?" Starting today, we'll help answer that question by including tips from the Community Guidelines in the messages we send you if we take down one of your videos.



For example, you post a video that features nudity. When it gets flagged by the YouTube community and removed by our staff, you'll receive this reminder: "Most nudity is not allowed on YouTube, particularly if it is in a sexual context. Videos that are intended to be sexually provocative are also generally not acceptable for YouTube. There are exceptions for some educational, documentary and scientific content, but only if that is the sole purpose of the video and it is not sexually gratuitous."



We think of this as "just-in-time" learning to help you make and upload videos that stay up on the site for the world to see.

no, why don't mother f** just GTFO of Youtube and stop flagging every video they find offensive!?
I mean small things, they find offensive and flag em.

Oh yea, what about that rape video called Mushin or something. Video was flagged many times, yet it wasn't removed. Until it was posted on the newspaper, then it got removed.


Those viewers should seriously GTFO!
Always watching it everyday like it's a freaking TV.

People will flag anything that offends them in the slightest. I honestly don't even think users (OR the spoiled-rotten partners) should have that privilege anymore.

Well to be fair on this the flaggins system does work but what I think is considerd "offensive material" is a tad large. There is always going to be some material that people find offensive, bur flagging these videos based on the opinion's of a single user isn't fair.

I do agree with what people are saying about this subject, you should make it like Xbox live does, wait until a certain number of people flag the same video before you take action. It's worked pretty well on Xbox live and I think it could work well on Youtube.

what about those damn @sses who keep saying copyright to their videos.
Those fools just lighten the hell out man, not as if we are making money out of their work:/

It's very frustrating to spend time creating a music video from your own record collection. Uploading it and then it either gets disabled immediately or a few days later.

You never know if it's copyright until you upload then it's too late! What I would like to know is if you are only allowed so many strikes before you're out?

I have been permanently disabled in the past possibly for people flagging stuff? or too many copyright infringements? It's frustrating not to know what you did wrong exactly?
If this continues to be a problem then youtube needs something like a video triage where you can check copyright before fully uploading?

I am back on but if it happens again that will be it which is a shame as I know people enjoy finding and listening to music on you tube and the artists/companies must make some revenue out of it all?
I myself have bought music on the back of listening to it on youtube.
