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.
