Thanks to Pingjam ! Google Play Developer Account Suspension
edited November 2013 in General Discussion
All of those which used pingjam and they have suspended apps in their developer account, get ready for this email.I already got it this morning.
Inspite of all the reupload with new package name, nothing works.Here is the email.

Then i remove pingjam,changed the package name to .net.andromo****** and resubmited only three of my apps and bammmm.Acount suspended.
Before that they are working fine and i have my own youtube gameplay videos.These apps were related to gamewalkthroughs.And you can find thousands of apps related to youtube videos still up there.
@straybullet Nothing was left in your app previously if you disabled Pingjam. We went through our source line-by-line to make 100% sure of that. Additionally, as of 3.2.8 Pingjam has been totally removed from our codebase, so even if you had it enabled before rebuilding will automatically remove it from your app.
Thanks for the suggestion about the ad networks.
intent on suspending any app that ever had Pingjam in it at any time in
the past. At this moment, I would recommend that if you have any apps
that ever had Pingjam in it, you take them down off of Google Play
immediately. It's not worth getting your account terminated.
is swinging their ban hammer really wide right now. It doesn't seem to
be limited to Pingjam either. Lots of threads from Android developers
all over the place:
