Re: Lost the + sign on thumbnails to add to a Playlist :-(

Here is another point to consider:
I can only envision this change being bad for YouTube as well as more difficult for users. Here is one reason why: Since I now must add several awkward steps before adding a video to a playlist, I NOW WATCH FAR FEWER VIDEOS than before due to the hassle this change has caused me. This also means I WATCH AND SEE FAR FEWER ADVERTISEMENTS—NOT MORE. After five years, this is the first time I felt it necessary to write on a YouTube issue—please bring back the “+” add to playlists option from thumbnails. I use this option as a way both to manage playlists and to save videos I KNOW I want to watch later in pre-organized playlists. I was already making informed decisions before adding videos to playlists. Now I am choosing to watch fewer videos.
