      YouTube/Google needs competition!!!

      YouTube and their parent company, Google, have gotten extremely cocky and indifferent toward their customers. YouTube got rid of the ability to decorate channels with art except for inside that tiny rectangle at the top, for which you have to choose from their very limited supply of images to use for most of the rectangle interior. The new comment system is ridiculous, and I am having trouble getting my comments to show up now. They show up for me when I am logged in, but they often do not when I am logged out or looking with a different account. Just then, I called YouTube to explain the comments not showing up problem, and I was on hold for 50 minutes. I never talked to anybody, but I am going to be charged for that call because it is a 605 number. However, a damn recording told me about 50 times that somebody would be with me shortly. What the Hell do they mean by "shortly?" A video site needs to rise up and make YouTube start giving a damn about what their customers think. I think they deserve to go out of business.

      If you are sick of YouTube/Google's shit, you can use this thread to vent. They are messing up big time. Rant away if you wish.

      Vent time.

      I fucking hate the new layout. There was nothing, and I mean NOTHING, wrong with the old one. I actually spent a long time (A few hours straight) making a custom layout for my own channel. Some months later, they change it. Way to 'effin go, YouTube, you've just partially marred the creativity of individuals.

      Never knew about the 605 number, nor that their customer service was poor. Though, I'm not very surprised - I think when you're a part of a huge company, who gives a damn about the customers anymore, it's all about the moooonnnneeeeeeyyyyyyy, not providing quality service anymore.

      Can we just hand YouTube over to a smaller company that'll listen to the complaints of the people?

      A while ago, youtube/google used/put something offensive to islam, so the arab people stopped using google and youtube for weeks!
      Making such a "protest" about the problem you stated might spread nicely, but needs something powerful to start with
      I fill my heart with fire, with passion, passion for what makes me nostalgic. A unique perspective fuels my fire, makes me discover new passions, more nostalgia. I love it.

      They also stopped you from being able to load the entire video and then play it so if you have a slow connection you're fucked. I wonder if we compiled these complaints and submitted them to another major company with some marketing power, we could drum up a worthy competitor.

      That's good that they hate each other. FB just does everything through FB so you can already upload videos but it's design scheme will never be as video oriented as youtube. It's all about the newsfeed, newsfeed is god.
