How much worse do you think Youtube could possibly get?
None at all, this is the epitome of absolutely fucking horrible.
It may well get worse.
It's definitely going to get even worse than this.
It's going to turn into fucking Google video enterprises.

The only thing I really hate is youtube asking me every other fucking day if I wanna combine my youtube name and gmail name. It's rather annoying actually. How many times do I have to say no?



Given the nature of some "real names" that I've seen, I might just abuse the feature next time so I can get that space in between the two words of my handle.

While we're on that particular subtopic, I managed to also be one of those lucky blokes who got a rather-convenient "real name" suggestion. Sure, I'll go by "Xaser Acheron" if you really insist. :P

Youtube has been shit ever since they allowed people to upload videos and comment on them.

Star-based ratings are irrelevant. Most people never use the 1, 2, 3, or 4 stars, they just go straight for 0 or 5 stars. Also, they don't vote according to the video, but according to who (they believe) made the video. This binary approach ("is he in my clan? yes I love him/no I hate him") is what appeals to the brainless sheep that constitute the majority of humanity. It saves them the effort of actual reflection. Heaven forbid they'd have to actually think and form an actual opinion on something that goes beyond the extremely superficial level of "I like/I dislike".

In short, it'd be better without ratings at all. And without comments. But those things are the sort of retarded gimmicks that the populace love on social networks, so they're never going to get rid of them.

It's not that I cared for the rating system or comment system, it's just I thought the site had a better setup back then, and not all of this confusing shit they have now that makes even managing your own videos laborious.

Wonder if there will ever be a reasoned and tempered response to any changes that Google does do to it's services. If everything was as shit as every internet runt is making it out to be whenever they change their systems, Youtube would be more a kin to a black hole than the largest video sharing site on the internet by now.

I'm not saying there aren't problems with YT, the DMCA system is one particularly nasty piece of the cake. And the website got some things that annoy me at great length. But honestly, it's not that big of a deal. If you actually cared that much, you'd actually do something about it (like file a complaint ticket with Google at the very least) rather than bitch on DW about it.

I was on the kristus&Belial train, because I didn't see any changes except the silly bell for g+ interconnection that I didn't care about. But now YouTube told me how they're improving comments...

Smarter sorting
See more from people you know.

...well, fuck you, Google. I don't need your positive bias reassuring me of my opinions. It's actually the one thing I'm afraid of the most when using your search engine.

Google totally fucked up the reply system. At one time you simply had to click the highlighted in response to John Doe text and we would instantly see the original post someone was replying to. Now when you click the text a new tab opens up and I have to wait for the page to load to see the persons original reply at the top of the comments section.

WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY THINKING?!

Also, this goddamn echo-chamber comments filter is fucking stupid. This would be great for tumblr and communities that don't want to see critique outside their personal circle-jerk, but on public pages like YouTube is fucking stupid.

I hope this isn't an automatic feature becasue I have yet to actually choose any settings. And this is why I don't use Google when searching.

RIP comment chains of 100+ spam and shit posting comments. The new system is highly annoying, and it doesn't even make sense. Next thing you'll know, they'll start to filter cuss words and filter more than porn. And whatever else they filter.

No matter how pissed off people are about the latest batch of changes done to YT, they'll forget all about it in six weeks or less, once they've gotten acclimated to them. Happens every time.

"OMG, Youtube changed their format again, WE ARE SO PISSED ABOUT THIS, GRAB YOUR TORCHES WE ARE GONNA BURN THIS FUCKER TO THE GR---OMG, a cat video!"

My only complaint lately is that YT apparently can't filter spammers or bots for shit anymore. I dunno if they ever did, but every section of comments has several of those 'my mom works from home' or 'my buddy started going to this site and got so many girls' posts. And I know it wasn't like that in the past.

Only thing I still complain is their inability to fix their shit like 30 minute long videos cutting to 3 minutes, changing video quality from 360 to 144 (no, not the automatic feature), and blanking out the 360 when it can't load it for some reason... Or the other qualities, leaving the HD quality as your only choice?

They ruined the comments section. Now longer will I ever be able to reply to anyone's comments or it'll force this Google+ shit on me again. I hope it doesn't do this for uploads.

I've been on YT since 2006. After being purchased by Google it has only become progressively worse. It's gotten to the point to where it is absolutely obvious that no one beta tests any of their features they add, they just roll them out and see how we like them and then just keep them anyway. I highly doubt that anyone who works in the tech or design section of YouTube has any idea where they are heading with their site anymore and its pretty much being killed by that negligence.

It's already bad enough when you have a site that is willing to DMCA videos left and right for nefarious reasons and then provide no functional legal recourse in recovering your content, its already bad enough that through their ad revenue programs and partnership programs you have people that can literally make $20k a week and not lift a finger to do any work and they are heralded by YouTube as legitimate producers and such. And we wonder why there are wealth distribution problems in this country. Yes, people on there can literally make that much and most of them don't even do anything good with it.

The site used to be alright. It had a good community, and you had to actually be good with making videos and such in order to succeed, not just happen to own a camera. What I see now is something Google doesn't necessarily care about and just dumps its failed ideas on because in their mind "who cares, we have billions of dollars, you don't, suck our cock and deal with it."

Yeah, youtube comments have been basically a disaster for as long as they've existed. Any video big enough to attract spam bots almost definitely has bigger problems in the comment section by that point.

As for performance, I've found things much improved after installing this extension:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fi...youtube-center/
Disables auto-play, forces certain playback resolutions, buffers entire videos, disables DASH playback if you need, etc.

Well, the channel formats are ruined, the comments are ruined, the ratings sections are ruined. All that's left are the videos.

Well, let's wait and see when they start forcing the ever-living shit out of Google+, for example, forcing you to join in before you can even watch a video.

If I ever have to log in with any account to watch a video, I will not watch that video. I can't imagine Google has so much of a market share that they will ever require this, though. (apart from age-restricted stuff, I mean, which can usually be bypassed anyhow.)

I just found out that clicking on the "Send Feedback" button on the bottom of the YouTube home page sends you to the Feedback Error Screen.
Wow. The fuckers.


Here's my message for the guys over at Google:
Hi, I'm here to make a complaint about the new YouTube comments section, among other things.

The new YouTube comments section is confusing. It doesn't help the removal of unwanted comments at all, and to top it all off...

...why must you constantly force Google+ upon the community of YouTube? It just makes the situation worse. People will start leaving YouTube because of that pop-up, stop doing that. It's annoying and unwanted. I'm not the only person to feel that way about it.
Forcing the joining of Google+ to simply make comments is unreasonable as not everyone wants to join that social network. It's just a bad copy of Facebook and you guys know it.

In fact, the OneChannel design is also a bad copy of Facebook. YouTube is not Facebook, remember when the users could customize the background and layout of their channel without much limit? I do.

Please, Google stop forcing Google+, you guys are better than that. Google was meant to be a search engine, not a social network, and YouTube was meant to be a video sharing website, not a social network. Just because Facebook has tons of users doesn't necessarily mean it's good. It's annoying if you ask me. I hate Facebook, all the dumb posts that my "Friends" send about their personal lives. I don't give anything to hear them blather on about stuff.

Another complaint is about the Subscriptions, why is it that when I link to Google+, after being forced to, my subscriptions are all lost, unless I un-link Google+ from YouTube, that is.

Please stop those pop-ups that talk about Google+, at least put a checkbox asking not to recieve them anymore and to still have access to regular features on YouTube.

I signed up to YouTube because I wanted to have access on keeping track of my favorite creators and video makers, as well as posting my own video-based creations. Those were good times. Then you guys made Google+ to compete with Facebook... then it all went downhill for me there.

YouTube used to be filled with smart creative people, free to make videos for the masses, and to display opinion without interruption.

I miss those times, don't you?


If I could talk to whoever's in charge there, that's what I would say.
I know they're better than to make a Facebook clone and force everyone who uses their services to sign up for it.

If I ever did create a YouTube account, I'd disable comments and rating on everything. The videos would also be all hidden. I'd only use them to embed from other platforms, like a forum.

This newest update to YouTube has to be the absolute worst update so far, and any new updates after this one could be suicide. I also agree with Rayzik on how we should blame Google because of the fact that all of this is happening. It's also fucking tragic that Google would force Google+ on our YouTube accounts because it's harder to get to the YouTube inbox because of this, and if we try to comment on certain videos without upgrading to Google+, we won't be able to useless we upgrade. I also can't reply to comments the old fashioned way which fucking sucks too. Good lord Google, what are you doing?

Yeah, because of this I can't review the newest comments on my videos at all because of this shit, which is fucking tragic.

Overall, the person who thought up of this update needs to be fired and it should go back to the original comments system. If it doesn't go back, then YouTube could indeed die with all of the changes going on. Unless if they fix the problems, then it would at least be decent.

There's also this petition that could bring the old comment system back, and yeah yeah I know some of you will say it won't work, but it's still worth a try:
