  2. I like secrets. Do you have to be a partner to play with the secret new channel thingy?

    ReplyDelete
  3. umm, i dont like the new channel layout at all, too confusing

    ReplyDelete
  4. Can you put the date of when the videos were updated in the grid view on the channels as it makes it much easier to find certain videos or just possible to keep track of your progress when watching the vlogbrothers =]

  8. I think you're updating your website a little too much. This is probably the worst update yet. Please restore the old channel layout.

  10. The beta looks terribly messy, and personally, it looks rather...revolting. The old channel layout is a LOT better than the beta...YouTube shouldn't be changing so fast. I don't want my channel looking like something like that. That layout makes YouTube complicated,and that ISN'T a good thing.

  11. I want to be able to see my subscriber count at the top of my page, not have to scroll down to the bottom to see it.

  13. there should be the transparency thing, then it would be all great

    ReplyDelete
  14. :D
    I have an Idea. what if you guys have a little switch that you can either view the channels in the New way or the classic way ? like somewhere you press that. and there. you can have both as a extra. that will be good. so tell me what you guys think ? it's a good idea if you want both if that's even possible. Thanks

  21. arrrrrrrrr!!! i cant change my main video on my channel ... its stuck on an old one and i want to show my new one =[

    ReplyDelete
  22. you should let people choose a background instead of solid colors

    ReplyDelete
  23. There is no URL FEATURE on the main channel page beta version so that you can change the video which is been displayed via URL

    the original utube was settings are >account>>edit channel>>channel design>>paste URL of video to be displayed on main channel page<

    Pls correct this asap

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't really like the new channels

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sorry but as much as I like change I do not think this could be the one... I think the old channels are amazing as they are but a new look would be cool but I don't think this new channel layout is the one... By the way to all people simply posting on here "This new channel SUX!" ... Have some damn manners people!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh and one more thing... What were the bulletins for and why do so many people want them back? All I saw in my bulletins when they were around were a lot of spam lol.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Uhhh, i'm too lazy to find out how, can som1 tell me how to get this beta channel?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hope to have the transparency feature back. I would like to see my backgrounds, and I'm sure lots of other people would too. =] It looks cool so far. I don't understand why people want bulletins back up, all I saw was dumb chain letter. haha

    And one more thing, is it possible for your team to take out the verification codes? Those get pretty annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  42. will partners still have banners and such?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hey I LOVE THE PROFILE !! How du you use it thoe ??

    ReplyDelete
  44. i love the new beta channels use them!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I Think The channel is great except the comments box. it should be extended like the old one because it is hard to scroll down it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. could i have a beta channel for youtube.

    ReplyDelete
  47. i really dont like this change it should either be an option (like view it new way or old way)and i dont like that the vids arent clearly viewable and that it doesent bring you right to your vid when you click the links its gonna make u-tube complicated wich will be a very bad thing for a lot of people i suggest keeping suddle things like the new subscribe boc and stuff but not changing it so drasticly sorry my other comment was an accident

    ReplyDelete
  48. the new layout is somewhat good.i have a question though.is it just me or is it that you cant search anything in the search bar when you are on ur channel?cuz to me,it just leads me back to my own page or the youtube main page

    ReplyDelete
  49. Dude,this is stupid,what right do you have to go on people's youtube channel's and hack it where they have shitty lay outs,with about a billion bugs on it.If you don't stop,then im gonna report...maybe,if you can do my account.Its downloadtheweb...so yeah....

    ReplyDelete
  50. hey, the new youtube version is great! the thing i like the most about it is that u can view other videos on ur own channel. and for those of u who are wondering how to do this go to youtube.com/super_seekrit. and there u can get ur own 2.0 BETA version

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think it is cool! Still like the old way on how you upload different backgrounds but i like the new way.

    I am definitely going to use and stick with the beta version and recommend it to anyone.

    I know a lot of my friend don't like it because they like having a custom back ground with there own pictures and stuff so they don't want the beta versions but other then that it is fine!

  54. i cant get my background to stay, it was fine for about the first week but now i cant get it save it... please help... my youtube name is chickenmancp

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like it but there needs to be more custom options and a subscribe button at all times but other then that it looks cool

    ReplyDelete
  56. I hate it.

    Its less attractive, and it takes longer to load. I like the simple form much better.

    ReplyDelete
  57. im just asking but how do i make my account beta its really cool

    ReplyDelete
  58. i Like the layout but the only thing that i dislike is that when i post a picture for my background, it doesnt show when people view my channel :[

    ReplyDelete
  59. how do i make my channel like the new ones?

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the new channel, the ability to view your videos as well as a professional looking sidebar with other videos to select, the layout is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  61. please select my channel as one of ur favorites, check it out i think its really cool. but i would like to know how to make one of ur videos the really big video at the top of ur page on the 2.0 version

    ReplyDelete
  62. I "sorta" like it, but there's a few problems I have with it:

    *I should be able to arrange the order, location, and size of every module please.

    *The Videos section at the top should be more customizable, like by default what sections (playlists, uploads, favorites etc.) appear to the right and in what order when in "All" mode; an option to choose which mode is the default would be nice too.

    Thats all I an think of at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I would like to know why my channel page wont show its picture that I chose, the old one did & this one didn't. Also will there one day be a link to all the vids so you can comment on them or watch them in the thing that lets you view comments & rate them? It doesn't have that right now so that would just mean people are watching my vids & not commenting which I wouldn't like. thank-you

    ReplyDelete
  64. Also it says that one of my vids are 4/5 stars when on the old one it says that it is 5/5 stars

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hello, I like youtube channels 2.0 beta! I can't wait to find out how to upgrade my channel! :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Uh, not to be picky, but it is IMPOSSIBLE TO POST A COMMENT to your newest entry, because the comment box is squashed to half its size to the left, so when the word verification comes up, you can't see the whole word to type, (at least in IE), making it literally IMPOSSIBLE to comment. Good lord people.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Well since it is impossible to comment on any blogs posts other than this one because you have the comment box/word verification box cut off, I'll comment here. It seems you gusy ignore that most people think the design is ugly and want to keep it the way it is. Let me guess, you put on a smiley face and say "Well give it a chance buddy ;) We are sure you will get used to it!", why dont you just say "OK look, you have no freaking choice, we don't give a rat's ass what you all think, we do what we want, we just pretend to be doing what you want, like when we took bulletins away then claimed that "the people wanted it", most of you suckers bought that load of crap, too :)".

    ReplyDelete
  68. Can someone explain WHY anyone feels the "need" to change the look of YouTube Channels, when I know of at least 500 complaints from the bulk of users about YouTube, the Channel look IS NOT ONE of them.
    I mean seriously.
    As a matter of fact, the Channel "look" is one of the most LIKED features of YouTube, and what makes a YouTube channel unique as compared to EVERY OTHER online profile on various other services.

    The new design is horrible. It looks formal and like a MySpace or twitter emulation, that's just pathetic.

    How about improving function, how about fixing profile comments after you broke them by changing the way that all worked, making it impossible to access comments more than 100 pages back.

    Everytime you guys "fix" something (that no one asked for) you break other things (that people want). At least give each person the option to keep it the same. (Which I know you won't, you guys FORCE FEED these changes down our throats, eventually. You just try to coat it with sugar, and little winks and smileys).

    Flexbility and letting each user decide what they want, thats the key. Don't FORCE this like you people forced the removal of bulletins, then had the gall to claim that the YouTube Users "wanted" bulletins removed. SURE they did.

    YouTube insults its users intelligenceenough as it is, besides treating them poorly overall.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I thinks is cool viewing uploaded videos and favourites in the same window really saves time and processing power

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't like the new channel layout, to be quite honest. It's too busy. My eyeballs are going everywhere at once. Some of the customization features sound wonderful, but I don't know if it's worth it.

    That being said, I think the numerous "u suk it looks like @#$%" comments are uncalled for...I suppose manners are now optional on the web. :(

    ReplyDelete
  71. how the hell do i get my channel to be new!! nobody is answering this question, but tell me or make my channel tht

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hello! Can you add me to your lists of favorite new channel designs? I changed my channel to the beta. The url is http://www.youtube.com/xtrasmall101

    ReplyDelete
  73. i love it everyone stop complaining! just give it a chance! i think the new channel is really cool its easier aswell also it looks much better than the old basic page

    ReplyDelete
  74. I just don't like it, it doesn't have a good system for seeing videos.

    ReplyDelete
  75. i like it.....but you can barley see any of my videos that ive uploaded........youtube.com/crazystuff777

    ReplyDelete
  79. HI i would love to have a channel like this PLEASE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I would recommend having like a YoutubeChat System. WHere we could im basically

    ReplyDelete
  81. I kinda like the new channel beta but is cool anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  82. maybe you should make it so there is a bunch of different channel designs to choose from... then you wouldnt be getting nasty comments saying the new channel design sucks... like facebook gets all the time... but i kinda like the new channel design.. but if different channel designs were available then that would be cool!!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. The layout is horrible.

    Makes channels look bad.

    Very bad.

    Youtube, you're losing members.

    Stop this nonsense, or you will have none.

    ReplyDelete
  102. hey can you watch my vids and help it get a lot of views

    ReplyDelete
  103. YouTube should stop updating their stuff so much. I mean, it's fine the way it is. And...

    "We are currently performing site maitenance. Be cool - we'll be back 100% in a bit."

    You're never back in "a bit". It always takes forever! And it's usually for something pointless like changing the "style" of the star rating. Leave your stuff the way it is! PLEASE!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I like the new channel, HOWEVER, it needs some improvements. Like, when I go to someones channel, the first thing I want to see is their name and description! Putting it lower than the featured video kinda makes it out of the way. If you could move the uploads and favorite sections lower, the channel name and description could be placed next to the featured video.

    I also noticed that when i go to edit something in my channel description, instead of leaving the box the size it would be (when changing it) it actually makes it smaller. This not only makes it harder to see what you're doing, but also makes it difficult to put things where they are supposed to be.


    This is a bit irrelevant to the new channel, but it would also be nice to get notifications when someone comments on your channel (like the way we are notified when someone comments on our videos).

    ReplyDelete
  105. I think the new layout is superb. Not THAT much different from the old one. What I would LOVE to see is the player we can externally put on other websites as the header player in the Channel???? Its the most gorgeous thing..... but..... you dont do that. instead we have the players we have.Multiformatting high resolutions and wide screens should be able to see more than a Cigarette box of a page squinced in the middle would be good.... but for now, magnifying glasses are cool. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  106. I also think the title and video first is an excelling idea. When I go to a Channel I go there to see their Works, not blurb on someone I dont know if I need bother about yet. When youre content hunting this is a time saver extreme.
    It would be great if the modules floated about like HTML Table Boxes, so that if we use WideScreens which are the common standard now on Computers, Flatscreen Wides, your Channel fits the window instead of scrolling off in the middle like a pencil all the way down. Wide SCreens give you C I N E M A.,,,, but not at the moment.
    Would that be good? ANyone agree? Screen formatting. So that your work and page content is at a size complimentary to your Monitor which cost you a fortune.
    ONE ISSUE... nitpic.... Tiling the BG image?
    Can we have it so that the top left upper corner sits tihgt in the top left upper corner of the screen.
    its a tiny point but it means we can control the content of our page if we wanted to add, say, our Channel name in fancy font on a BG image. The way it is now the image sort of floats and tiles but not as a start point in the upper left corner.
    Good work.
    Appreciated.

  107. "We are currently performing site maintenance. Be cool - we'll be back 100% in a bit."

    BOOOOOOOOOO NEW YOUTUBE BETA CHANNEL!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  111. thanks again great design

    how does one change the font size and type. noticed in the favorite samples above that the font size is smaller than my page, and uses times. my page has the font size too large and does not fit properly on the layout, as if the browser type has been enlarged, in fact, when reducing the type with the browser by one size from the Normal size, it fits perfectly...hmmmm.....what to do?

    ReplyDelete
  112. i like it alot i just am haveing a problem with it i can't post links in the channel Description and its got me ticked please fix it thank you and have a nice day

    ReplyDelete
  113. uhh wheres the details....and i cant see my backround anymore....help?

    ReplyDelete
  114. but the new option of choosing pictures is cool

    ReplyDelete
  115. "we're getting closer to a full release to all users"

    Does that mean all channels will become beta no matter what? I certainly hope not. I want to choose if I want beta or not.

    ReplyDelete
  116. what happened to the full-screen option on the new beta?

    ReplyDelete
  117. so today, my "see all" button won't show all. my subscribers number has jumped twice to 160 back to 60 something,,and my home page has a "subsciptions" button at top that i don't want there. that was kind of personal. is this a temporary problem? you've taken care of so many issues so quickly, thank you. i respond to my friends to say thank you,,though not today,,have a wonderful evening. brian www.youtube.com/inthecresents
