Hey youtube. Im sorry to say this but I hate the new look. Cant you just please leave Youtube alone for a bit?
please please PLEASE give back the bullitens box! the recent activity is a good idea, but me and my friends NEED the bullitens!!!!
i agree with xlevelsangelx why not just have a recent box and a bulletings box. Also i would like to be able to post images onto youtube-like i do on facebook and bebo. and i think all nations deserve a flag. for example the location of hungary should not have an earth but a hungarian flag
oh yeah and youtube looked beta before
get rid of this recent activity box there no privacy now
i dont like it but its ur site ur call god bless
i dont realy like this but i want the bulliten box bac
For the people stressing over privacy - you can easily remove "recent activity" from you page through the Edit Channel button.My main gripe is the style of the page. It's ugly. It really is. It's overcomplicated. Although, I suppose we're just going to have to get used to it.
I think that in general it's a good feature, for instance if a user wishes to increase awareness of a particular cause or interest.However, one's recent activity is by default public, which may raise concerns over privacy until account settings are altered and the information made private. Thank you.
As regards bulletins, I personally prefer the old style. I feel that like any message, bulletins are most effective when they are broadcast rather than having to have the recipient come and read them directly. It would be especially difficult for instance, if one had several bulletins a day; keeping track and having to look for each bulletin would be difficult and time-consuming.
FUCK YOU TUBE!!
we want are privacy

why keep changing things? your making yt shit! if it aint broke dont fix it
where are the bulletins gone?!
The bulletins box didn't mean much to me anyway but your changing an awful lot recently without even giving us a look at it before hand, or anything?They are kind of big steps your taking so it's not just some like minor detail, you changed the videos without us knowing first? Thats huge..You've changed all this and (you haven't mentioned) the new style? It's all changed for me, looks more like an old layout than a new one.Like some people said. "If it aint broke, don't fix it..". Nothing wrong with how it's been in the past, but per usual we'll have to adapt.
if it ain't broken don't try to fix it!
how about i want to get rid of that stupid Recent Activity Box all together??? it seems like a ridiculous idea, if anyone wants to see what videos i have favourited recently all they have to do is look at my favourites box. And same goes for recently uploaded videos. This box sucks, how about in stead you give us back our nice little full screen box format in stead of the shitty widescreen format???Also how about stoping all the censorship??? If kid's watch stuff on youtube that they shouldn't be watching it is the responsability of the adults around them, the internet is a place were children could be exposed to all sorts of adult material and it is the responsibility of the parents, not of the internet.
take it off
change it back ever since u put that new thing up my youtube aint been workin propa
I had my channel looking quite smart until this thing arrived!Please make it optional!!!So I can remove it!Thank you.
its ok...but i prefered it as it was
You're not discussing any of these changes with us! I have heard some great ideas from some of the YouTube community that i think that you should consider. Here are some of those ideas.1) A small video box on youtube channels that can be used to make an offical introduction to the owner of the channel.2) Get rid of the two black pillars at the side of the video box! it is a waste of space!3) STOP MAKING INAPPROPRIOT CHANGES!!!!
please let us choose the aspect of our page i don´t like the new way.... i want my old page...
Bulletins back. Now Please.
FAO : anyone complaining about privacy - You can select NOT to have the new "recent activity" box on your channel by selecting : a) Edit Channel;b) Channel Design. Then de-selecting show "recent activity" via the appropriate button mid-way down the Channel Design page. OK.
I want my BULLETINS box back please!!Thank you
I also want to add that i agree with the person who made a comment re the favourites.They are already there;in the favourites box;why change it?..Please respect people's feelings in this.You are making totally unnecessary changes;and upsetting a lot of people.Why?Even the comments that people leave;you have changed that format too.Please stop changing the brilliant;original concept of yt.I love my page;now I am confused.Everything is totally different.I just don't understand why you are changing a format that was fine in the 1st place.Ireally enjoy YT..but this is unnecessary and sad.
we hate it
hey youtube ruined my chanel they stole my bullitens box :'(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
seriously this new box sucksplease bring back the bulletin boxesi like the new widescreen videos tho
BRING BACK THE BULLETINS BOX PLEASE! Youtube, you have removed my Bulletins box without informing me! How sad:(
get this crap of my channel please
can't let us chose wether we went the changes or not?
i agree this new change is not good.its messed up
Okay, I'm genuinely unsure about who it is you're listening to, and if they even use this site, because it seems that all the changes you've made recently, noone has asked for, or wants. I'm quite glad about the bulletins disappearing, personally it seemed like a waste. But still, it does look like you've created a new wave of unhappy users- tough shit I guess, but yes, this isn't MySpace. If you want to contact people, use the email feature.As to the Recent Activity, it does look like a complete waste of time. If I'm right in saying that it'll feature news like recently uploading a video, then that's just pointless because people can see in our video list if something is new, or will see it in their subscription box. If they want to know what we've favourited, they can look at our Favourites, and if we want to show people what we've rated recently, WE CAN ADD THE RECENT RATINGS BOX TO OUR CHANNEL. All in all this box isn't a horrible change but it is just another example of you not listening to your users, and if you are then you're not making a show of it. Please READ these comments (maybe not the ones on this entry, because most are fairly grammatically redundant), because there are a lot of people with genuinely GOOD ideas that would IMPROVE the site, not just make it look flashy and slow it down. I'd really love for you to take this on board, and maybe just for once, an actual response would be nice.Yours, littleradge
how are we surposed to lnow who sent bulletins as we can't see them?You stole my old page after I went to the effort of uploading 23 videos. Give my page back
YOUTUBE IS NOT MY FAVOURITE PERSON RIGHT NOW.bring back bulletins!this is even worse than widescreen!
When I first got a channel made it look really good. No youve changed everything it looks ridiculous. If you don't sort this crap out ill get a facebook instad.
I can't imagine ANYONE asking YouTube for these changes! Sounds like a patronising, condescendingly annoying idea from a stupid morale team-building camp with terms like "dynamic, fresh and timely." I think an "opt in or out" system would have much more well received. IMPOSING this on everyone sends out the wrong message. Too "CHINESE".
i like the new Recent Activity box but bulletins were important for spreading news to your FRIENDS CHANNEL but i suppose it isn't that bad p.s you tube kicks ass
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Add the bulletins back!!
I agree with JustinCoy) very stupid idea, i dont need the whole world knowing what i watch,rate,cmmt,subscribe to,most recent friend,you have ruined my utube exp, thinks alot!!
Yes, they ruined my experience to
Thanks for the recent activity! More useful, and I hope the bulletin will be useful than previous version because I never used it:/Oh by the way, I had a warning for uploading a video Gantz, i was giving a warning in June (6months to expire), it should have expired by now:/
no one likes this new thing CHANGE IT BACKITS RUBBISH AND ANNOYINGI CANT EVEN UPLOAD A VIDEO COZ ITS SOOOOOOOO CONFUSING!!!! :@

In all seriousness, I think this Recent Activity box isn't going to work out very well as bar as bulletins are concerned. Only having five slots to display what happened in over 3 or 4 boxes is going to make whatever we do vanish very quickly.The options you've left us for bulletins now are either disable most of the channel displays so that the messages stay there, lessen activity so the bulletin stays there, or just not use bulletins anymore.This is only causing more problems than solving anything.

STEFXXCOKE, that's the most stupid, immature thing you could attempt to do. If you want them to listen to you, try and approach it in a mature, more sensible tact, not "Hurr copy/paste if you hate it durr". Long story short: Grow up.
BRING BACK THE BULLETINS BOX PLEASE! Youtube, you are seriously upsetting many great youtubers by removing the bulleting box! Changing the page is also a very bad idea!! PLEASE TAKE THIS ON BOARD!!!!!!
STEFXXCOKE, FUCK OFF. You're making it worse for everyone. If YouTube read these comments and all they can read is "COPY AND PASTE..." Then they're not going to do a thing about it. You're not starting a revolution, you're just being a pain in the ass.
Honestly YouTube, it doesn't make a huge pile of difference to me (I hardly use any of the features), but still, there are obviously a large number of people who have problems with this. It seems to me that you just listen to the wrong parts of what your users are suggesting, then piece together completely random features that just gt on everyone's nerves. But it's your call, if you want to risk the depletion of site traffic.
It doesn't look like many people like this.
the new changes are rubbish and no 1 likes them i mean whats up with the bulitens u can only c your own BRING THEM BACK
dont like the changes
Well, I'm not really fazed by this new recent acivity box, but some people seem pretty annoyed by it. I'm more peeved over the fact my background and icon can't be animated anymore, and that deleted mail keeps reappearing in my inbox. Oh well,we'll see what happens. Don't think there are many happy bunnies though.
stupid fucking twts i need my fucking bulitin board back
your videos suck
What the Hell, wat's goin on!? Why did they change it? Wat the fuck man that is jus stupid!!!!!!!!!!! " I am not amused "
SOD OFF GO ON....ON YA BIKE GO ON...GO ON SUNSHINE ON YA BIKE...ON YA BIKE...
oh no the youtube comunity is afaid of a few words boo hoo get over it.
I want the fuckin bulltins board back.
" Regarding bulletins, we've listened to you, and most of you didn't see the value in bulletins as they are today. So, we're taking a first step to make bulletins more useful. Although the bulletin box will be going away, now you can broadcast a bulletin directly to your channel visitors in your Recent Activity box. This not only provides a fun place to shout out personal updates and news, but also provides an additional way to communicate and engage with your channel's fans " WELL EVRYONE HERE IS COMPLAINING ABOUT U TAING OFF THE BULLETIN BOUAR. OMG THAT IS ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am pleased. The old version was too complicated. But I miss the buletins.
this new update is ok but u have to put the bulliten board back i cant find out events or stuff that people r doing now
I don't like this version. I won't be able to read any of my friends bulletins. Please remove it.
"YouTube is like Michael Jackson- the first couple of facelifts were for the best, but now it just looks scary." -fallofautumndistro, 2008.
Yer, please get rid of this new thing. There is no need for it. Its pretty pointless.
I don't like the recent activity box, it doesn't serve any purpose at all in my opinion.
TAKE IT BACK!
i blame the scousers for this...inbred granny robbing varmits
A silly invasion of our privacy.
its alright but yer i miss the bulletins too :(
"Regarding bulletins, we've listened to you, and most of you didn't see the value in bulletins as they are today"Who the hell said that?! Removing the bulletin board is a bad thing! Sure, most bulletins were a waste of space but it was a useful thing to have when people on my friends list have a message to send out or let us know of their new videos!Bring it back!Oh and stop making updates every 3 seconds! (OK, that's not true but you get the idea!)
neocon got anything to do with this????you lost a court battle didnt you?!and now all our names, hobby's, points of view are to be handed over. MY BUSINESS IS MY BUSINESS!NOT YOURS OR NEOCON.FUCK THE NEW WORLD ORDER!
YOUTUBE IS GR8 BUT GET RID OF THE HUNGARIAN EXTREMIST
Bring back the bulletins
Where are the bulletins?
Dear Youtube,Negative, This is no good.Wheres the privacy,If this new system comes into place,I'm gonna stop using youtube.
The YouTube interface really is rubbish. So cluttered, unattractive and unintuitive. And there continues to be so many pointless little changes taking place. I completely fail to comprehend the value of the "Recent Activity" box. At least you should give me the chance to turn the features off that I don't like.
How do I get rid of the recent activity if I dont want it there???
What happened to the 'when added' info on the videos? It was a useful guide to understand the relevance of 'view' numbers. At least you can switch off the 'recent activity box', you can't seem to switch 'added' info back on.
I really don't like the new bulletin thing. It was a lot better before as you could post videos & updates to others. Now no one will see them.
I'm sorry youtube but I really don't like these changes and many others you have done. Please put it back the way it was. There is also no option to remove the Recent Activity box. I don't want it on my channel. Thank you.
ChineseCalligraphy - 'Edit Channel' button, select 'channel design', untick 'recent activity box', save changes.
oh, and those hard earned ***** seem to have lost their luster. I'm usually one to complain, but ...
I'd like to remove the Recent Activity box from my channel page. Please add this option!!! Thanks!
Thanks dashpoet, must of missed the option. I would still like youtube to put things back the way they was though.Thanks.
(.. that should say 'not usually')
Put bullitins back mate, they are useful!
bring back the bulletins please !!
I think u shud keep this and add the bullintns!
yeah the bulletins were good man!xox
where did the bulletins go?
Wow i Love the changes, but put the bulletins back on please.
how can I tell mass ppl Im offline now the bulletins are gone?
can we also have a youtube messanger? like u have msn and yahoo messangers. please can we have that on here or a download. thanx
that was rude.
You can turn off the "Recent Activity" in Channel Design if you don't like it.
I also think bulletins are needed, its impossible to contact large numbers of friend at once through recent activity box since not all will be on your profile.
rubbish, change it back.
Awfull change it back
BRING BACK BULLETINS AND KEEP IT THAT WAY
cool with the changes
i dont like new style , bullshit , there is no privacy, change as it was before , other wise i closed my page,
I'm ok with some things, but what the hell, I Don't want people knowing what I've recently viewed or rated or anything, so I turn it off, and what does it do? it says that other people can still see it and I have to change yet another setting, I'm tired of these changes, some are ok, but I think your only doing this because 90% of computer users are idiots.
Bring back bulletins please
You're just taking the piss now, Youtube.
but cool changes
GET RID OF IT
what the hell has happened this is irratating i donb't want the world to see every little thing i do on utube i have a personal life u no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 get rids of it and i want bulletins please bring bullets back
without bulletins, i cant tell my friends about new videos i put up. it is easier to make one bulletin than comment on all my friends pages to tell them i have a new video on. i think its stupid the way youtube keeps changing. the last way was the easiest to understand. now my background is just one pic rather than duplicated (dont know if i can change that yet though) put it back!!!
change it back to bulletins, this thing sucks
GET RID OF IT!its says every lil thing you do! stop stop stoppppppppp
it is ok i liked it the way it was but this is a little bit better
BRING BACK THE OLD BULLETIN BOXES!!! PLZZZ!! it is easier to tell ppl when i have a new video or going offline if we had the old bulletin box! ppl dont have to go to my channel to see my bulletin! they just scroll down on their own page and can see EVERYONES bulletins!
Please, the updates seem to be okay EXCEPT for the one that shows EVERY LITTLE THING SOMEONE DOES! Get rid of it!
we need the old youtube back.. the bullitens keeps me on track with what my freinds are saying.. so please give it back.
what sort of nut job thought this up do you actually talk to youtube users at all...!!!
get rid of it! it's annoying!
BRING BACK THE OLD BULLETIN BOXES PLZZZZZ!!!!!
the layout should have more options to make it look more personal and dynamic.
sorry,but i think HAVING the bulletin box is more useful than taking it away....
It's okay so far, I suppose...
for the love of all the YTbers everywhere BRING THE OLD SYSTEM BACK!
stop trying to be myspace
Hya I am bored lolx
Nice but if you change the video back to 640x400something then it'll be ownage youtube
ok we deffo need the bulletin box bk and i dont like that every1 can c wat ur up 2 !!! its not very personal
ive gone deaf in the left eye
i honestly can't see the point of it. so many sites seem obsessed with adding a facebook-style activity feed. if i don't give a toss what i've been doing on here, why would anyone else?
What joke. Am I consolidated?
everyone watch my really funny lego videos they 15fps and family guy and lotr
