As a user for several years, I've found the original homepage to be incredibly easy to navigate. Now, the messages are so tiny as to be invisible, organizing videos by user is really not helping me, I don't get recommended videos for when I have nothing better to do, and I don't care what the people I watch do.
I've already had to deal with being unable to stop getting alerts on what a certain user keeps liking without any way to stop it. Now I have to deal with this, and it's irritating. I prefer having things organized as they were, by WHAT the videos are and not by whom (in subscriptions), and subscriptions are really the only thing I look at when I come to YouTube. Also messages, which I can no longer find on the front page.
If YouTube will not change the front page for everyone, at least give us the option to change it back, like you did when you were trying to launch the new layout to begin with. It's not that I don't think change is good. It's just that this change is not helping anyone.
