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.
