Exactly, saying "Oh it's not that hard still" in no way justifies making something more difficult for what is essentially no reason.
yes but that's retarded.
I'm just logged into G+ every time I go on YouTube now (the G+ account is linked to my YouTube account).
some of us don't want to use G+ just to use YouTube the way we were accustomed to.
G+ is a terrible service and the whole new YouTube system update is garbage.
I'm sorry, but how does G+ make YouTube more difficult to use at all? I've found that it made it more convenient as expressed by my post on the previous page. Please provide stronger examples of how G+ has made YouTube more difficult to use if at all.
@Diablo: Yes forcing us to use G+ to comment on YouTube is retarded. Deal with it. This is the same situation as with previous YouTube changes, however the "stakes" are somewhat higher. I take it that it's just the principle that you're worried about? Because it's not a huge deal at all just to connect your YouTube account to G+. You're making this more difficult than it really is. Anyway, it's probably clear that I can't change your mind, so I'll give you guys some time, and maybe you can suck it up buttercup.
It is inconvenient because:
- I need to go through the G+ setup which constantly asks me to update my details and to add friends whenever I open it.
- I need to access a different website just to view my comment replies on youtube, a website I am unfamiliar with and serves me absolutely zero purpose.
- I can't reply to some comments on Youtube unless I find the original comment and it seems only the original commenter who started the thread gets an event rather than someone i'm replying to
- I can't have my Youtube username and Google username separate, If I used G+ why the f*ck would I want to be called finn4life to my friends, and why would I want youtubers to have my full name so they can search my facebook and stalk me out in other ways.
I just don't understand why the f*ck I need a G+ account at all, why won't youtube let me just have a f*cking youtube account, I don't mind allowing linking, but what if I don't want them linked? Forcing it on you is bullsh*t. Also the notification feature might be good for you, but an easier solution would be to simply include it into youtube.
Also I should point out the irony in you complaining about having to check a Youtube inbox and how inconvenient it is, then telling us to suck it up and deal with the many inconveniences of being linked with G+.
I also found it ironic that you said that "WE are making it more difficult than it is" ERRRR no, Google is making Youtube more difficult than it needs to be.
Suck it up Buttercup? Okay sure, and you can go suck a dick.
Sincerely - Buttercup
Okay... this is just following from your point about trolls, which I didn't say anything about. Can anyone provide a reasonable example of how the comments section has changed for the worse?
Yes, I can. Instead of now having Top comments and then chronological order underneath, I have to choose one or the other, so I have to press that tab and switch it if I want to see one or the other instead of simply having the two top comments available in the chronological tab and then you can choose the top comment tab to view all the top comments.
Google is not forcing you to use your real name. Their policy on names is that it's recommended that you use your full name, but you can opt to choose any name you wish as long as it doesn't violate their policy.
As I explained before, no they are not forcing you to use your real name, but if you actually used G+ with your friends surely you would use your real name right? Then you are forced to use your real name on Youtube as well, you can't separate the two at all, so either you put your full name on Youtube which is stupid - especially when your name is unique like mine and there actually isn't anyone in the world with the same name, that's asking to be stalked, or have your details taken, your Microsoft email account can be easily hacked with simply your full name and birthday - or you put your youtube username as your G+ name, which is also stupid, it would look retarded as f*ck to all my friends if my name was finn4life on G+.
Google has made Youtube more inconvenient and difficult to use simply to inflate their G+ numbers, which essentially does nothing
