New YouTube commenting system

I want to make 2 things clear:

1. YouTube comments are indeed awful, but they need to work on better ways to deal with the assholes, (which thankfully they've added) and I still liked commenting and have had some fun moments with them.

2.Complaining about YouTube changes is old hat, and not all of it is deserved, but they've really fucked it up this time.

So now that's clear, let's state what it is and why it's garbage -

For one thing, you have to be connected to Google Plus to comment. So, already that's pretty shitty, since you're forced to sign up for a another, irrelevant website, but now, let's make it so that all of your comment notifications go to Google+ instead of y'know, YouTube. Pure Genius.

Secondly, the layout goes towards popular YouTubers and the layout wants to show you comments that "You" want to see instead of the latest. Don't have a ton of subscribers? Go fuck yourself!

Finally, it hooks up to a site no-one uses! It is quite blatantly a attempt to boost Google+'s popularity, and it's at YouTube's expense.

Ugh, I swear, there needs to be a decent alternative to YouTube, and I can't say there is one.

Here's someone else showing it and complaining.
Just throwing out there that it took me over 10 minutes to find the option to change my avatar. Turns out the option was via google +.

My genuine opinion of the new system in a nutshell

I caved last night and integrated my channel. I knew I'd have to go to Google+ to change my avatar, but it still took me a good 5 minutes to find exactly where.
We might as well have a stickied thread somewhere for YouTube changes.
This is the first change, to me at least, that went merely beyond 'this sucks but I think I'll get used to it real quick, no big deal.' I sincerely believe all the hate is justified. I don't know why the official video explaining this change has any likes at all. Something that was as easy as 1,2,3 has become a lot more complicated and requiring a tutorial, just to boost some numbers. Why? Do they actually want people to not use it anymore?
The only reasons it's not totally bad are that I can edit comments now and reply to channel comments. That's it. I could care less about clickable links in comments. BRING BACK VIDEO RESPONSES! AND STARS! I don't even care about Google+ and I would not give a shit if they got shut down.
I used to get at least a few comment notifications a day (more than that if it's the first day having uploaded a video) and now ever since the switch I've only had one person comment on any of my videos.
I think it's kinda cool how the guy who posted the very first video on the site had this to say:

If I wasn't so concerned about following people or getting views, comments, or subs, I probably would delete my account right now!

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level I will ever make in SMM2 will be easier than Ultra Necrozma.

There came so many Youtube updates, but no one made it easier. After the update I watched only 1 video, and I didn't wrote a comment, when I read that now, I was just thinking "WTF?!". I'll never join google+, a week ago Google asked me to join google+. I said "no". I got back to my channel and there was written "check out your new google+-account!" and my avatar was disappeared AGAIN! I never found the option to find my avatar, and I searched over an hour. Then, I just left google+ one more time (they "asked" me once before too.) and was "happy". Really, when i found this stupid f**ing message, I screamed "F**K YOU GOOGLE!!!!!", I don't want to know how loud I was :O
I think everyone should shitstorm on Google/Youtube, it's just horrible.

To be fair, there's ONE good thing about the new update, which is a first.
-You can resize the player window again, instead of trawling through menus.

But you can't view replies to comments, which RUINS THE WHOLE EFFING SITE. #smw{>:(}

Now that's a good idea.

Usually inactive/procrastinating on a hack idea.
I'm usually the one to jump in here and make fun of everyone complaining about a YouTube change, but fuck, this is ridiculous. For the first time it sincerely makes me want to stop using YouTube, which is rough since I spend a good amount of time on there. I don't use any social networking sites and I don't want to broadcast my comments, so this is like a huge double negative for me.

Also the comments are in an iframe so I can't style them dark like the rest of the page, so there's a big white rectangle in the middle of my beautiful YouTube styling.
This new comment thing SUCKS!!! Now people can spam and put ASCII in the comments. I can't even comment, I wouldn't be surprised if they made it to where you can't even register without having a Google +. Fuck you Google.
Someone posted me a site about Google+ and I've seen tons of complains about the Google+ thing. I don't really want to say "YouTube sucks, f*ck you Google", but it's really awful, that you have to use Google+ and various other crap, which just makes navigating this site even more annoying. I've been very often on YouTube several months ago, I couldn't have a day without searching new videos and watching some random stuff. When they added the new layouts, I just stopped using YouTube, because I didn't really like how it looked at all. This time it's getting really awful, why in the world do we need a Google+ account just to comment a single video? This is just annoying, not helpful, that's why I just left the site... and I'm viewing it very rarely.

Honestly, I really would like to have the very old layout like in '08-'09. It was much simplier and with the old rating and commenting system (stars ^^). Well, I really doubt it will return...

I know right? YouTube instead of getting better is just getting worse. Can't these people understand that others hate the new shit they add in?
Every time they change even a little thing on YouTube, everybody complains. Yeah, the comment system is a little clustered, but I find people will accept it after a little while.

--------------------
I no longer have interest in SMW Hacking as I did when I first started several years ago.
I should pay Youtube to have an update each day just so I can see how many people complain about it each time.

I go to Youtube to watch videos and I can still do that. Don't see what the fuss is about.

Surprise! Some people like to comment on YouTube videos.
Surprise most youtube comments are shit.

If I want to know which lightsaber the like/dislike bar is or how x amount of people were y I'd check for myself.

Or you can just watch this.
That has precisely zero bearing on what I said.
I'm not normally one to bitch about YouTube changes, but this is by far the dumbest thing they have done. Seriously, YouTube. What the fuck are you guys thinking!?
I don't give a fuck about the comments, really...well actually that's a lie. They seem worse than before.

I miss my inbox being useful far more though.
Instead of curbing spam, they just increased it. Now every other comment on the 'meet the new YouTube comments' video is either the same thing copy pasted over and over into a wall of text, an entire movie/play script, or ASCII pictures of Swastikas, middle fingers, and penises.
This is also one of the lowest like/dislike ratios I've ever seen on any video, ever, and with 24,000 dislikes and counting, is probably on track to accumulate more dislikes than either Rebecca Black's Friday or Justin Bieber's Baby. The video itself is false advertising just by claiming that the comments just got better.

I cannot believe this madness. I am SO glad I don't ever use my youtube account again.

Seriously, go fuck yourself, Google.
Come help save Super Mario World Central Production 2 here!
I will say that it is just ridiculous to force people to get a Google+ account just so they can comment on videos.

Whatever, everyone will just have to get used to the changes over time. As usual. Because YouTube doesn't care.
