YouTube One Channel LayOut leaves Much to be Desired

I’ve come to realize that the new one channel layout is designed to feature perhaps 2-3 channels while the rest fall by the wayside.

I think it’s why my video viewing habits have dropped to almost nil.

I like to have choices. I don’t like being herded like cattle.

I’ve gone to the home page and for a month straight the largest channel I’m subscribed to (MinnesotaBurns) has been featured at the top every time.

Yet I almost never watch his videos.

The second choice is usually TheOnion. Both are good channels but why do they always get pole position if I never watch them?  Sometimes my videos make it into the “recommended to watch” list which is just stupid.  Why the hell would I want to watch my own videos? (err… you know what I mean.)

The rest (which you have to scroll down for) are a haphazard mix of channels some of which haven’t made videos in months.

I guess this format works well for people who like to be gently told what to do but it doesn’t sit well with us more individualistic types.

  1. Thats why i set up my subscriptions to send me an email when they have a new upload.
    Go to The Channel page of one of your favorite Tubbers,you know that gear symbol? click that,and you should be given the option of being emailed when they have something new..
    Hope that helps.

  2. I for one miss seeing new videos from you, TruePooka. I understand all the time and effort that go into videomaking,but your voice on YT was one that added to the balance of the mix.As for the new design, it’s made youtube such a bland place.I miss the individualism.I never was that tech savvy to create a page design,but I loved pages that popped.I also am so tired of drama. I am looking for reasoned discussions not the Snooki and Lohan hour.
