  5. The new design, while clean and professional, appears riddled with bugs. Newly created accounts' videos do not show up on the page. This is not good.

  9. Youtube staff:
    ARE YOU STUPID? Havent you seen the videos, the anti-beta groups, all of these negative comments? NOBODY LIKES THE NEW CAHNNEL. Nobody! Give us the option, or thousands of users will leave, and you'll lose money. You guys are retarded, nobody likes the new layout and if you dont give us the choice, we're all leaving. Dont go trhough with this. You already pissed us all off by taking away bulletins, are you trying to completely ruin your site? Dumbasses.

  10. While I actually don't mind the new channel designs, I'd like to point out that YouTube should take note of the reaction the forcing of the new design is provoking.

    Facebook has the same problem. Someone thinks people will like a new change, implements it as a trial, and then turns a deaf ear when very few people find the new version better.

    What's the point of a trial if you're just going to force people to use it anyway? Please, large megasites of the Internet, please remember that everything that you are is because of the bourgeois who use your site. Newer video sharing websites take note when YouTube does something that upsets users (YouTube removing the 10+ minute videos feature back in 2007 I'm confident lead to blip.tv's new popularity.)

    If you anger the people who make videos for your site, you run the risk of them heading to another site. And while you might not think this is bad (Hey, we have our megastars like Fred, people will still come to our site in droves). Well what happens when new videomakers start their Internet careers at Blip instead of YouTube? Suddenly more people start heading in that direction. And what happens to your users when the novelty of Fred and the like have worn off?

    The majority of your users should be your primary concern when you're running your business. If you don't listen to what they want, eventually people will move on.

  14. I do NOT like the new layout. It's impersonal, crowded, and crams the channel info down under the videos. Was there something wrong with being able to move modules around? Do we all need to be clones now? Doesn't that go against what YT is all about? This change is forced, I am looking for another place for my videos. Already too many issues with YT to tolerate something like this.

  15. The new channel design is awful.

    Please answer this very simple question. WHat is the point in creating an introduction for your channel in the info box on the left if it is forced right to the bottom of the page if u want to show videos??

    How can an introduction be the LAST thing people see? it doesnt make sense.
