The issue in GetHuman1685199's own words
I "hid" my channel so that I could permanently delete every single comment I ever made on YouTube. My understanding was that after ** minutes I could unhide my channel. It's been at least ** hours now.** What I've been doing in attempt to unhide the channel is I go to YouTube, click on my icon, select my channel, then Use YouTube as comes up, my username is there, and then I click on "Create Channel".** Now the thing is my Username is filled out in the First Name section, I didn't think to put anything in the Last name section when I changed it about a month ago.** When I click create channel Last name section is lined with red and says "please enter a name".** Then I put in a last name and then in read writing it says "changed too recently".** So as is, how can I unhide my channel?**Link******https:**productforums.google.com*forum**!topic*youtube*skLAJRhlAS**context-place*topicsearchin*youtube*anonie********** This is what I have written on the YouTube Help Forum, no has helped me.**One person replied and said to reenable the channel and sent me the link, but it is exact same thing I explained in the post.**I can't call the number ***-***-**** because I'm in Australia I think.**And I can't wait any longer, I have videos to upload.**There are other posts similar to mine where people did the same thing and have to get it reported by someone else.**I really need some help here.
