Why have you made it so difficult for us small channels to be able to gain subs/ views? I understand that you guys wanted a fresh, new look to youtube and personally i think it looks cool... at first glance that is.
Due to the fact that it is so difficult to read the comments/ comment on someone's channel, us small youtubers have not been able to find and help each other out as easy as it used to be. it currently takes 4 clicks, or approximately 8 seconds for someone who knows what they are doing to be able to locate the channel comments page. That is 3 clicks or about 5 seconds more than with the old channel design we all loved. Doesnt seem like much huh? Did you guys know that before the "updated" channel design i was receiving about 5-20 comments on my channel daily? Guess what that number has dropped to now? 1 every 2 weeks.
I really love all the possibilities for customizing my channel! I can choose a color for the background(the panels on the sides of the channel content).... What happened to all the amazing options we had before with fonts, colors, and how you could choose which boxes go where or if they would even show. Yet another thing that doesn't make your channel stand out from the rest(unless your a full partner with banner)
Another thing thats killing us. Why are our related videos not related anymore? I have skateboarding videos, why are some of my related videos some half naked, 13 year old girl vlogging about her response to RWJ's video, or another 1,000,000+ view video by a big partner? I include nothing related to these videos, and yet, no matter how hard i try i still get these videos showing up. Its as if you want these to show up because your making more money from them then from us....
This new "loss of subs out of no-where" problem? We are still waiting for you to at least acknowledge this so-called "glitch". People are losing up o 13,000 subs a day from it even though it says the gained subs! Problems like these that dont get fixed immediately are the reason so many people are coming to hate the new youtube.
And this new "partner program" changes? Why do i have to wait months, possibly a year just to EARN the branding options? Sure, i can join a network(which i probably will) but im not earning 100% of my revenue. And also, anyone with an adsese is considered a partner? Worst of all your knowingly inviting UNDER AGE CHILDREN to create their own adsense accounts, monetize their videos, and lose their accounts becaus they didnt follow the rules. They loose their "earned" money and Youtube/ Google keeps it. Smart.
How about you guys put the "you" back in youtube, otherwise consider changing the name to something a little more correct like "we could care less of a S*** about you, tube"
Sincerely, Very concerned and dedicated small youtuber(the ones that matter)
