1. The comments system is terrible.

The Comments suck anyway, there's too much hate.

I still like reading them anyway.

Same here, a lot of them make me lol. To me YouTube is the idiots meeting place tounge.gif

I guess they dumbed down the ratings system, along with a good majority of the site. confused.gif

Holy mother of god, just when you thought YouTube couldn't possible f*ck things up any more. Well, I guess they have to appease to the mass of idiots infesting it.

They actually improved it a bit. It's much easier to view another user's videos if you're already playing one of them. The video description has been placed nicely.

The comments have been raped in the ass and the stars have been replaced by some unoriginal "I like it" "I dislike" horse sh*t.

They should put lines between comments or a box around a comment so you could tell who is saying what, easier. It looks a little messy right now.

Hopefully they'll give us a "classic layout" option sometime in the near future.

To be honest, I didn't think YouTube was old enough to have a "New YouTube."

Haha, that's what I thought too.

In my opinion, new Youtubes are getting old lately. They keep changing the design too much. I liked it best maybe a month ago, before the new major changes and with the new quality select menu.

Well, I know from the advertising world that the trend with websites is to streamline, streamline, streamline. The future is mobile friendly, so we're going to see a lot of our favorite sites take similar paths.

I don't mind it so much, really. Only problem for me is that it totally dates the crabland episode about stupid user comments.

Edit - PS: Autoplay is awesome. They should have added that years ago; I'm a huuuuug fan of stumblevideo for that reason alone.

If you right click Youtube's new logo the default name to save it is "logo_april_fools-vfl157034". Just an April Fool's joke after all?

The layout is not an April Fools joke. The TEXTp feature is.

It wouldn't be so bad if their videos didn't buffer so slowly. I'm convinced it's a problem on their end because I've heard other people complaining about this recently. I used to be able to watch 480p and HD fine, now I have to turn everything down to 360p.

everything has been replaced with something similar but less creative. The stars have been replaced by "most liked" or "most hated" and the rating has been replaced by an thumbs up or a thumbs down. Commenting is worse because you can't tell what someone rated it and it's like an early youtube. the only thing good about it is how you can view videos in it's original quality if you want.

it overall sucks though. is it just temporary?

Yes I noticed this late last night, and I thought it sucked then too, not to sound paranoid but it happened just shortly after 00:00am and today is April Fools Day. monocle.gif

I don't really see what incentive a company would have to play an april fools day joke on everyone.

The new layout's been available for weeks, the TEXTp thing is their April Fool's thing.

Everyone in my house has been loving the new layout for a while now.

Also, check this out in regards to the thumbs up/down thing: http://youtube-globa...te-ratings.html

Lol, TextP runs slower than any quality on my computer. And their April Fools Jokes are starting to get lame recently.

Lame jokes + lame layout = LameTube mad.gif

Oh god what have they done, I hate this new sh*tty layout. plus ads are slowly infecting the whole of youtube, I don't give a f*ck if they totally cram the surrounding background with ads but actually putting them in the videos is f*cking bullsh*t.

YouTube is a free service with huge bills to pay -- they kinda need to make money. So unless you want to start donating to the website, my advice is to shut the f*ck up and deal with it.


QUOTE (cursed)
I don't like all the new crap they've introduced. Especially the widescreen when 80% of videos are still in 4:3

That's like saying "I don't like the 720p setting because most of the videos on YouTube aren't in 720p". The button takes up what? half an inch of your screen, if that?


Most of the sh*t you guys are complaining about doesn't even warrant a complaint.

Yeah pretty much. But why WHY did they replace the 0-5 star rating system?!

Advertisements don't bother me, they have to pay for all these free streaming videos being sent to millions of people all over the world every second, somehow.

But they need to ditch the new rating system, because it's not half as informative or easy to understand as the old one.
