    What do you think of the new video page design that they just did? For the Video Responses, I think it's a bad change, as it now shows just one video instead of four. And the description has been moved right below the video, which I think will be a much better place for a link, right in front of the viewers face, instead of having to look to the right.

    Oh, and I think the upgrade killed youtube. I get mostly errors,

    Http/1.1 Service Unavailable

    or

    Google Server Error

    or the one with a billion characters with a message that monkeys have been sent out to fix it.

    My bot is working with the new layout, and since I also have a script that votes my comments to the highest rated on the page I get even more traffic then before. :D

    Are they serious, maybe it's a mistake but is the comment area do follow now?
    Am I seeing this correctly?

    Okay this is even crazier than I thought, everything on the video page is "do follow" from what I'm seeing.
    Can anyone see if I'm right because yesterday before they did all the upgrading I was seeing all comments
    were "no follow" now today it's changed?

    What this means to me, I can go and find high page ranked videos in my genre, and add a comment and soak up some of their link juice? where my name that goes to my channel gets the link juice.

    This was not like this yesterday, and even the related videos are "do follow" this would really help if it just isn't a glitch on my side. I have been doing the comment on channels lately and really brought up my page rank fast doing it. If I can comment on page ranked 6+ videos I think this would boost me to the moon.

    Is anyone seeing the same thing I'm seeing?

    I like it as far as piggybacking goes. The related videos are a lot easier to see for viewers and plus the description is right in people's faces, which means more exposure of my link. Other than that marketing aspect, I don't really like the rest.
