I dunno about any of you guys but I find it weird when a video begs via annotations to subscribe, comment, and rate. But it seems to be working though for the "bigger" channels. I just don't get it. You'd think people would automatically do all those things if they like your stuff, and I personally would like people to rate, comment, and subscribe because they want to and they liked something they saw rather than because an annotation bubble came up and told them to.
Also, it's kinda upsetting that we don't have a country/language option yet for the Philippines (where I'm from). From what I read here on this thread, it seems videos uploaded within a certain country is circulated or something like that and can even get honors. We don't have that. Most likely because there aren't many YTers who post original content from the Philippines yet. *sigh*
