Thread: Youtube has started to suck

  1. #1

    Default Youtube has started to suck

    Am I the only one who dislikes the new Youtube layout?
    It seems like it's basically uglier and less user-friendly than ever before:
    you can't rate videos anymore, you can't delete some of your Comments and it seems to take forever before you can see Good Comment and Poor Comment rating results.
    Heck, I can't even read Comments anymore, they only seem to show up if I post a comment myself (and only sometimes) or if I enter the video through a reply to one of my own comments.
    I hate when a great medium gets worse just because someone wanted to make lame epiq chang3s.

    I hate the new comment layout. It's so disorganized! The only good thing about that is some comments really shouldn't be read xD

    Hate it, and what's with the vevo thing too? It's been around a little while but it takes forever for vids to load. That, and vids are still taking ages to load because of the changes.

    It's like Twitter. They think they should upgrade to "keep with the times" and all that, but nine times out of ten it crashes or it was a waste of time. Never makes an improvement and just makes people cringe and never want to use it ever again.

    True, though, the "favourite" button's disappearance stumped me momentarily; why did they bother? It didn't even make things easier; it takes MORE button clicks. We don't like that.

    I am not a man

    I'll grant you the video rating thing, but complaining about the layout (and other issues) of Youtube's comments section is a bit like complaining about Nintendo Power's layout. It begs the question of why anyone is looking at them in the first place.

    Youtube's comments are best left ignored even when the layout isn't crap and they actually work the way they should.

    Starting to? It's sucked for yonks. The only upside to it is the free upload service, and even that's being nixxed in such a way that only the most popular/corporate videos are the ones with any sort of front-page viewership. Give it a year or so and the place will be paid for.
    There is no signature here. Move along.

    You tube is going down the path of xanga to myspace and then myspace to facebook. I wonder what will take over the video world?

    They should do away with the comments section altogether. Poison and evil is born there.

    It doesn't look as nice and as someone mentioned it takes more clicks to do certain things. I don't understand why it was even changed.

    I try to stay open-minded about format updates and such, but, yeah... it sucks.
