While I totally appreciate the sentiment, I think that going ONTO YouTube to post that would be counter productive wouldn’t it? The only way to post it would be to have a G+ account, and the very thing you are protesting is the fact that they are trying to force a G+ account on you. The problem is that Google knows YouTube is a mainstay of the Internet. They can do whatever they want with it because in the end, people are still going to use it.

So if you really dislike what they have done, don’t use YouTube or G+. Show that you wont stand for them ruining YouTube in a selfish attempt to push their own product.

To be completely honest though, I already had a G+ account anyway (never use it) so it didn’t really effect me :stuck_out_tongue: But while I am perfectly fine with them doing everything to weed out, shoot, kill, maim, slaughter, and burn the scum of humanity that attaches themselves to the Youtube comment section, I don’t think forcing G+ on people is the way to go.

I havent seen the bob comment in ages, oh does it bring back memories.

Google allows people to get your real life information if you used a email you also used for google+. You need to create some kind of page thing to use a USERNAME! How can they make anything better with unability to reply to old comments, use of real names, worse communication between youtuber and commenters, marking random youtube comments as spam, and all of that. A very big part of youtube don’t want to use real names, because their let’s players, groups or other reasons. They are making youtube worse to give Google+ any chance of competing with things like Facebook and Twitter.

This is childish in my opinion, not only does it do nothing, but it fills up the comment section with more spam.


#8

#9

one thing never change, that is everything change. you2 and youtube, and all.


#10

dont get scared. adabt.


#11

I’m all for a genuine discussion about the decision to change Youtube comments, and what the effects/ ramifications of that are …

If we could transition this thread towards that from this ‘Bob’ thing I think that’d be best?

If not, I think we can lock this one down … opinion @SteveAdamo


#12

can you explain the Bob thing please, no joke.


#13

@sommerbreze … the hardcore discourse-users like to use the “edit” option to change a recent post and to avoid 2 or 3 posts in a row (which is considered not very 1337 by those guys) :wink:. Btw. this even bumps a thread.

And on the topic… I sign the first 2 paragraphs of @Dash’s post.


#14

i dont Edit my post, whats mine is yours.

even my fail.


#15

man you are all so cool, please make space for old dude playing PCgames.


#16

Ok, let me rephrase it… posting several times in a row (and maybe even without “content”) might be considered spam and annoy other people in a forum. And as a forum is all about exchange between people… why do you want to annoy someone? :wink:

(Sorry for hijacking the thread)


#17

sorry for annoy,
find you smashed with Idéa.

Vox pirate, im out of your hair.

Edit: thanks for the assists, @voxel_pirate:wink:

Gotta make it smooth like a baby’s bottom

Lets change the direction guys. Never seen Commander Adamo lose his nerve before and it’s not something I think any of us would like to see.

So, keeping in mind the (unwritten, but really shouldn’t need to be said) rule of ONLY ONE POST AT A TIME GUYS (much like Fight Club’s ‘only one fight at a time’ rule). Whats everyone’s opinions on this YouTube change? I didn’t really notice anything different except that all the comments seem wonky and everyone is upset.
