Tried the new layout and there is no way to even come close to 1% of what the channel looks like now if forced to redesign the whole thing due to this new layout.
It's so limited as to what can be done. You made it so users cannot make a channel look original. It all looks generic in design. Look at this channel, http://www.youtube.com/creedneed Why should all this go down the drain because you wont allow creativity in design of channels and are limiting what is possible.
It's a nightmare after working so hard on a channel to have this happen and have it not even offer the options to replicate the current style and layout designs people have made on their channels.
Why can't YouTube offer the users the option to pick if they want change over, let users pick which channel layouts they want, the current or this terrible new limited one?
Can't YouTube consider this issue?
Can't YouTube make it so channels can stay in the current layout and also give all the same and more design layout capabilities with anything new they are adding in the new design of the channels?
