    Just a heads up for anyone who might be using bots or macros. YouTube just launched it's beta version for it's new design (called 'cosmic panda'). They're calling it an experimental design, but it would be the biggest redesign YT ever had if it goes live, which I presume it eventually will.


    You can change to the new design at youtube.com/cosmicpanda

    Looks good, it's just that the ads go straight into the viewers-eye pretty much :)

    Which isn't that bad, there might be some money in advertising on YouTube for an marketer.

    Nevermind, I guess the bots have to be recoded a bit.

    I didn't notice that at first, but you're right, it does kind of look like one.

    Damn, that doesn't look good to me. Everything is too big. I have to scroll many times to reach the comment section on a video. Wow, the channels are also f*cked. I hope they're not going to make youtube like this...

    I feel distracted, I think there is too much stuff close together. I don't know but it just doesn't seem to feel right. I really don't like the suggestions sidebar as it now has less videos shown.

    and I'm trying to give feedback but you can't give feedback about how your own channel etc looks like. Cuz there are A LOT of bugs! For example, people are able to watch my favorites at anytime, I can't hide them. I could hide them on the 'normal' youtube.... Crappy stuff.

    Also, when I try to edit personal details on my channel (on the right), I get "There was an error saving your changes. Please try again." everytime I click 'save' --> bug.

    I like the basic page. Definitely can tell it's owned by Google. It looks more like a video search engine than anything else.

    I don't like it, too much happening. I don't know why they feel the need to keep updating it every so often, it's like once a month know. I still prefer the ORIGINAL old youtube layout. So simple, yet so effective.

    YouTube fucked up and forgot to add the option to go back. Figures. :eek: Just clear your cache and cookies will get you back to the old.

    God what an abomination. There is so much wrong with that change. This will make the channel page and video viewing page change hatred seem mild. Hope there support forum can handle the crush of complaints once this puppy launches live.

    I've just sent this 'feedback' to them.

    "I hate it !!! I hate it all ! Please don't do this to us !"

    Let's hope they take it seriously :)))

    Btw, now is the time to use your proxies and 1000's accounts to send them some neg feedback about this new design. Maybe they'll change their minds at least at some point.
