That was scary when I opened my mail this morning.

I received a mail from YouTube with the subject: 'YouTube account notification'. And in this notification they said my channel was been suspended.

We'd like to inform you that due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines ( your YouTube account MrMarcie has been suspended.

What the fuck?

I was really shocked to see this, especially when the image on YT came up with the message that the channel was terminated because of a lot of accusations. And I really did not get it. I had not uploaded a video for a long time as you can see but yesterday I placed a video about Conky, a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any kind of information on your desktop.

In that video I placed a link to my script on dropbox and a link to Github with the original program from the makers. I assume YT just has some surveillance software that automatically blocked me.

After I received the mail I immediately contacted YT and luckely they responded very soon.

Hi there,

After a review of your account, we have confirmed that your YouTube account is not in violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we have unsuspended your account. This means your account is once again active and operational.

So we're back

It was a bit scary but at least we are back! I immediately set my website back online. I still have to do a lot of work on the template but now I can link to my website articles from my YT video's. Hope that will help me to keep my channel alive on YouTube.
