But why WHY did they replace the 0-5 star rating system?!

Read my post above, click the link, and find out. Practically no one was voting anything but 5, and sometimes 1. Thumbs up/down makes a lot more sense.

I understand why there are adverts but playing them actually at the start of videos! Not good.

This graph fascinated us and so we wanted to share. It shows the number of videos that receive specific star ratings: one star for when you loathe something, five for when you love it. Judging from this chart, it looks like some of you are moved to rate videos when you don't like them, but the overwhelming majority of videos on YouTube have a stellar five-star rating:

Seems like when it comes to ratings it's pretty much all or nothing. Great videos prompt action; anything less prompts indifference. Thus, the ratings system is primarily being used as a seal of approval, not as an editorial indicator of what the community thinks about a video. Rating a video joins favoriting and sharing as a way to tell the world that this is something you love.

We're glad there are so many awesome videos on YouTube, but all of this begs the question: if the majority of videos are getting five stars, how useful is this system really? Would a thumbs up/thumbs down be more effective, or does favoriting do the trick of declaring your love for a video? These are just some of the questions we ask ourselves as we look at data like this and think about how to build the best, most efficient site for you.




I guess that does make sense.

I don't see why people see this as an April Fool's joke. It's been this way for about 3 weeks. I know places like to get a head start on the frivolities but it seems April Fool's has just become a cover up for everything that changes.

As far as aesthetics are concerned, it doesn't look bad. It's just different. I'll get used to it. I'm not so bothered about comments because it's usually filled with the most vile, hateful examples of the English language - it'd boil my blood beyond mortal point if I ever see the word "male" spelled "mail" again, so it's a good thing I have to exert a little more effort to find them. As far as websites like YouTube are concerned, the simpler the better.

I feel like I don't like it, but that is only because it is changed. I hated the new profile layouts as well but I have got used to them. At the end of the day I don't spend my whole life there so I do not really care...

There's this button right above the comments that says "post a comment".

So it's probably that.

Okay. How do I look at the lists of the all time most viewed videos, most popular videos, most subscribed channels, etc.?

Haha, nevermind. Browse button.

Can we start a petition for a classic layout maybe?

I think that's the good way to go. Make it like it was a month ago. More classic layout with quality select menu.

i dont get why everyones hating on it so bad.. sure its different but get used to it, changes happen. Sure its new and different and no ones used to it yet.. but thats just right now. just give it a month and youll adapt to it and im sure before you know it youll wonder how you managed with what they had earlier. if noone ever updated anything, we'd be stuck in some retro style era, which could be kinda cool but not as easily accesible

About the new layout, how do you see the 'like or hated' rating on videos?

I think you have to rate it yourself first, then you see the results. Kinda like a poll.

They need to spend more time on getting moderators than designing the website.

Whats the f*cking point then, the whole point of them is to save you from watching sh*tty videos, so you end up just clicking it randomly before youve even watched the thing just to find out what its rated. The star system was perfectly fine, who cares if people only voted one star or 5 stars? Its the average result that matters.

It seems like videos don't load as fast, and therefore I have to let it buffer for a few minutes before playing.

That sucks.

Nothing wrong with good change. Why did they feel the need to dumb everything down like that? Looks like it just jumped out of the beta to me. Videos are now taking even longer to buffer...

And if nobody ever updated anything we wouldn't be in a retro era, it would be just like now but with new products to buy instead of updates to download.

The only thing i don't like about it is that it is just a one big flat.. thing.
I liked it when everything was in their own little boxes. Other than that, I don't really mind.

Meh I don't rate much anyway so it doesn't bother me, but when they first changed it the box in which you type in while replying was too far left so I couldn't see the message.
