To prove you're not a spammer, email newuser.lgqa@gmail.com with the subject "Account Request" to request an account.

Situation: I deleted the Google account linked to my YouTube account with over 2,130 subs. That account was perminantly linked to this Google account. Now there is no password that works to get onto my YouTube account.

I have submitted a couple recovery tickets to try and recover the deleted Google account. Neither worked and each included as much information as I can remember.

I have other information they don't let you put in though that may help them believe it is my account. Such as the birthdate the account was registered with. I have information only that can be known to someone who's seen the settings and account pages of my YouTube account.

Of course, when reclaiming a Google account, they do not let you add in this extra kind of information.

Question: How do I send a support ticket to Google to add in this extra information that may help me recover my YouTube channel and this Google account?

He most likely used a flooder. I have tried it out on my Q&A site they make a lot of fake hits.

How does one call google? Can you give me a number? A link to a help page from Google with the number?

I'm assuming you've used this form: http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/request.py?contact_type=reopenaccount You might also try the "Forgot Username" tool. http://www.youtube.com/forgot_username

W00t. It worked.

(Aug 08 '11 at 05:15) PolishJamaican PolishJamaican's gravatar image

Which one worked? Or did you find another way?

(Aug 08 '11 at 05:31) WinfieldTodd WinfieldTodd's gravatar image

Worked temporarely. Now EVIDENTLY it is linked to an email, which I cant sign in with that email which it is linked it. It makes no sense.

Well, crap. It's too bad there's not a way to easily contact YouTube/Google for additional support once their automated methods fail. Good luck, dude.
