The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

Is it okay to bitch about YouTube over here on the ARK?

Do any of you still hang out on YouTube? I need to know what the heck is going on over there and I can't figure out how to contact YouTube to ask. Whenever I watch a video in my subscriptions list I have to click a button to keep it from auto-playing the next video in my list. This is very annoying. I have to click the button every time I watch a video! PLUS, I cannot see the list of response videos and there is no longer a side dialogue box with links and info about the video. Did I mess up my settings or did YouTube change everything just to piss me off?

I don't look at YouTube very often and I've never opened a channel there, but it does seem to me that it gets less user-friendly every time I visit.

It's nice here at the Ark, isn't it?

haHA,...I just got back from youtube,..spent the last half hour trying to figure out how the hell I get to a channel of someone who just friended me. I think they are working on making it MORE user un-friendly,..so yeah,..I'm still sorta' there,..but can't help you.
Oh, before I was done with my comment, I read Nature's,..there ya' go.

Not only all-of-the-above, but when you try to comment on a video over there, the text your writing goes off into oblivion...you can't see it!!!!

YouTube has become its own network, seriously, and they're no longer caring too much about the video-makers who are the base of users. They don't bring a profit and simply take up bandwidth. That's why I'm thinkin' something new is gonna spring up...something for just us video-makers. Something like (but better than, in terms of management) LV...?

Still hopelessly hopin'...

Having been been a loyal user of YouTube almost since its Launch, I can now say it totally sucks!!!

I am so disappointed with YouTube. They make it impossible to complain about the changes. Why didn't they just leave well enough alone. Why pay programmers to make it worthless and unusable?

My original channel, U2bianSynic, had the kinds of glitches that made it inoperable and they basically set it up, I found, so that only partners had access to tech help. That turned me off big-time.

I had to set up a whole new channel, although that turned out to be something good, I think. I had a thousand subs on the old one and needed to purge.

Hey, I think YT fixed a couple of the problems. I just watched Syd's Two Minute Phil video over there and I was able to see the response vids and I found the description box. The box is under the video and you have to click the little arrow button to expand it to see the video info. I didn't try out the comments to see if that is working yet. I feel a little better now. Not being able to see response videos was driving me crazy.
