New YouTube commenting system

I'm not allowed to reply to any comments ON MY OWN VIDEOS.

 

Seriously -.-

I can't believe people are getting this angry about a comment system. On the grand scale of thing it ranks pretty low.

@fullmetal People hate it because it requires people to sign up with something that they really don't want. I don't want a Google Plus account, and I don't need a Google Plus account. There's no reason for me to have one, and even if I wanted one, I can agree that people who don't want one shouldn't be forced into having one.

Not to the people who get payed to make their videos, or to people who use youtube daily.

 

It's a really awful site design for something that was once so simple, and such a huge change for something that so many people rely on and enjoy. Their new update doesn't even fully integrate youtube and google+, just breaks a lot of youtube; like smashing a brick and a glass cup together to make a 'brick + glass cup.'

 

e: And nobody cares about "the grand scale of things," it's the little things that are important to people. Logging onto GTAF isn't a huge part of my life (not in merit anyway), but it's one of the little things that makes my day what it is.

That's a great example Joe, it just defies logic why'd they'd think this is a good idea.

Anybody else notice that searching is f*cked too. I searched and put in "by upload date". I get a video from 3 months ago, then one a day ago, another 3 weeks ago, and then another a day ago, in that order. :sui:

maybe it is just in descending order, just make sure it isn't.

It seems like people are rebelling against Bob and his tank.

 

Almost every comment I see is against Bob, no need for tank, this is stupid idea because Google won't change, etc.

 

And those who actually post the tank, get heavily flamed by other Youtubers.

Well I finally caved in and linked my channel with Google+. Now I can post my own comments again, but whenever I go to reply to existing comments, I get this:

An awkward collapsed comment box that I can't type into. Anyone else have this problem? Do I have to type the person's name in and hope they'll stumble upon the video again?

I cant even use youtube anymore because it keeps directing me to some HolaSoyGerman channel with some Spanish guy with too much energy on it.

I hate it so much. I used to comment on pretty much every video I liked and now I rarely if ever do. Haven't in weeks.

I'm also sick of them asking me for my mobile number every time I log in, too.

Beyond annoying.

I honestly wish they would go back to the old old YouTube. Like back in 2005-2008 days

Maybe I was imagining it, but yesterday there was this really neat blocky (like Windows 8's tiles) front page for me, where the usernames were in bold, and videos were sorted by uploader, and everything was lovely. Now I've logged in and it's gone.

 

And I was thinking about taking a screenshot yesterday too. :/

 

e: Got it back with some cookie f*ckery! :happy: I think it's an improvement anyway. It disappears when I refresh the page, so I'm gonna give up on keeping it.

e2: Unless that's an old one. I seem to remember seeing those bolded names before. Here's the one I'm getting normally for comparison.

e3: And here's a third one. It keeps switching with layout 2 being the most common. This must be youtube's last ditch effort at trying to look decent. :lol:

Just checked Youtube's official video on how comments just got "better".

 

2,776 Likes

 

56,509 Dislikes

 

I think the public has made it clear about how much "better" they think the new system is over the old one.

I don't have a Google Plus account and I am able to comment just fine on videos. I just don't get all the hate. On the grand scheme of things making comments on a site should not be the highest of priorities for people.

Selecting comments to be arranged according to top ones is useless now.
