Demonetized For No Reason

Question

I have been running my YouTube channel with monetization on for over 3 years now and they're have never been any issues. However, a couple days ago, YouTube's randomized bot system had the compulsion to demonetize my channel, and say I can reapply in 1 month. Their reason was "reused content".

 

My main conent of my channel is uploading gameplay with no commentary for different games.

It is what YouTube consider reused content.

It is their definition that counts, not yours.

You answered your own question. YouTube is no longer monetizing such content.

What other channels do or do not do or have or not have has no bearing on your channel. What matters is your channel's compliance with the guidelines. They are very clear:

"Video game content may be monetized if the associated step-by-step commentary is strictly tied to the live action being shown and provides instructional or educational value."
"Videos simply showing a user playing a video game or the use of software for extended periods of time may not be accepted for monetization."

That's not reused content.
