Be sure to set the tubes up in parallel. We've seen what happens when one thing breaks in this current series of tubes.

Yeah, ever since they shut GeoCities down, the whole thing has gone straight to hell.

Is You Tube really that out of touch? How can they not know what OCRemix is about. This whole debacle has got to be the work of some moderator over there that is living under a rock.

Nope, it's an automated server that's done it.

Apparently, if a channel gets enough flags, then a server will suspend the account. Then someone else has to come and check out the claim, then decide to fix it or not, based on the claims and the flags sent, in this case, "spam".

How about we begin emailing Google and YouTube about it?

I made a twitter account just for the occasion, which I'll probably never use unless OCR needs my help again. I tweeted and shared on Facebook. I hope the account is up and running again soon.

Total balls! I've tweeted at YouTube from the Rainwave account, for what it's worth.

I also know someone who works at YouTube, and I forwarded him this info. He said he'd be reaching out soon. That might be worth more than my tweet. :)

[edit] The YT account is back up!

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE, you are now reading this message in Dr. Farnsworth's voice.

And score one for the OCR crew. I can get back to my regularly scheduled listening of Goonies 2 - I'm Taking It All Back, which was my plan before the channel went under.

This reminded me a whole lot of the issue with SilvaGunner and others that uploaded music. At least Youtube has no actual reason to keep ocremix's channel down, so thank goodness for that.

Yay! Glad that the account was brought back to life so swiftly. :)

By the way, in regard to:

it’s pretty much impossible for us to be commercially deceptive.

I'm just gonna go ahead and speculate since no other reason for the takedown was given and this wasn't mentioned anywhere in this thread.

Could the links in every video description to buy hoodies/shirts and to make donations have led some people to draw the wrong conclusions?
