Get the old homepage back, NOW!!!

Seriously, what the f**k is this shit?!

I LIKED having my subscriptions and recommended videos limed up NEATLY on my homepage! Why should I be FORCED to scroll through dozens of videos just to find what I'm looking for?! Why in the world would you think that this was a GOOD idea?!

Unless you want to lose THOUSANDS more users, then I'd suggest putting things back to the way they were, and STOP changing things just for the sake of it! Seriously, what monkeys run your design team?!?! It's not EASIER to use, it's 10 times friggin HARDER!


I left YouTube once before, when the channel pages got redesigned, and I'm slowly being driven away again. I don't WANT to leave - I love making videos and sharing them. But, there's only so much crap that a person can take, before they finally have enough of it and just walk. I know at LEAST 11 people (and that's just people that I know personally) that have actually DELETED their accounts because of this constant updating and messing around. Nobody knows if they're coming or going with YouTube anymore. It's gone downhill fast, ever since Google took over.

So, YouTube... Incase that was too much for your wittle brain cells to take in, I'll give it to you in a few short sentences.

- NOBODY likes these new 'features' and 'updates' that you've added.
- Before you add yet MORE unwanted features, take down the ones that you've already added.
- LISTEN to what the users of YouTube want. Afterall, these are the people that have to use the site.
- If you continue on this path, you WILL lose 1000's more users, and YouTube will become yet another failed website, destroyed by it's own 'updates'.

Wouldn't put it past them. Fuck, YT. I'm an intelligent person and know that this is just one more foot in a virtual grave. At least make an option to get it back.

i agree. if they are going to continue making changes, they should at least give us the option of changing it if we want to. i want the old one back, i liked that one much more because of the recommended video section and the separate part for the subscriptions. if they were successful with what they had before, they should keep it and not change it. that will only anger and upset the users.

Dear Youtube, Well done on continuing to change things that nobody wants changed out standing! P.S Eat shit and kill yourselves.

Youtube, why did you decide on this new format? As someone who uses YT daily i can not see why you chose this new format, it is clunky, cluttered and hard to decipher, everything you don't want!

Chetigol, I could not agree with you more.. This is very cluttered, hard to find and awkward.  I hope they change it back, otherwise, I am liable to stop using you tube.  I will advise each of the people I watch regularly that I will have to withdraw and stop watching because of the new format.  Perhaps that will get some action.

This  could be the biggest internet fail since...anything! Congratulations, Youtube, you fixed something that everybody liked.

Think about Microsoft. Anything with the word "smart" in it is usually a fail.

I'm printscreening the homepage (if my computer doesn't freeze again from it) and putting it up on failblog.

the thing that pisses me off the most is that THERE WAS A BETA FOR THIS PAGE. A BETA WHERE YOU COULD GIVE FEEDBACK. and this looks EXACTLY THE SAME as how the beta was. i remember saying that this layout was too spread out and ugly, but either they didn't read what i wrote or that's what they were going for

Downsy filled designers at Youtube have no idea what it means to update something, but make it better at the same time. Except they do the opposite, Downgrade it and make it worse.
Just like everything else they try to change on the site. Even the load more button, that should be replaced with numbered pages, so users can click once or twice to see the very first videos posted by someone on their channel, instead of having to click load more through 1000 videos.
