    So today I logged in to my account and this is what I got
    [​IMG]

    Is this the latest update now or people in different countries are seeing something completely different?
    Only thing I see is bigger thumbnails and now it says "watched" on videos I click.

    From Youtube and Trending are still and option below.

    This is what I see using an Italian Ip:

    From Youtube and Trending are gone, even if I log in.

    Maybe they are just testing how their revenue performs without having those two sections. But if they decide to go this way, without the front page exposure for new videos basically it will be impossible to become a big YT partner anymore.

    if you are not logged in you get a normal youtube page.if you login you get a newsfeed stating everything you have done and videos that might interest you.

    Noticed a design change, too. Why the fuck does YouTube always feel the need to roll out fucking ugly updates? Honestly it feels like someone at YouTube is being held against their will and being forced to roll these shit updates in hopes to kill the site.

    Its becoming less and less personal. First channels go in March, now we cant even see what we'd like on the homepage.

    They could make such a nice design with the all the flash capabilities but they have an ugly-assed grey block look. Bleugh.

    You're insane to like SPAM. That's what it is, a spam feature. They went from organized to SPAM. They stripped down features to that. Basically now, it is either spend money or gtfo off youtube (their mentality with this design). It is ugly, and it doesn't function well. Now, this has nothing changed for buying YouTube views or likes but it does mean that you now can't rely solely on YouTube.

    It doesn't mean the end of the world, just means now you need to work 5x as hard and work 5x as smart. It actually got a little bit easier for your videos to go viral (if you are willing to use your brain a bit). I could explain further on the new strategies, but I don't think that is what this thread is about.
