    Youtube will be making some new changes to the video watch page. Here is some of the stuff said on their blog:
    To understand what Im talking about, check out this video on the new watch page. I noticed they have removed the ratings, with either favorite it or hate it.
    Code:
    http://youtube.com/watch5?enable=1&next_url=/watch?v=93c37Xna874
    
    Copy and paste that link
    Now will this affect all those youtube bots for ratings? You tell me.

    looks like more related vids can be shown on the right hand site. This can be a good thing.

    Another stupid decision by Youtube and I'll tell you why.

    Now Blackhatters or your competitors will be able to create thousands of accounts and THUMB DOWN your video even if it's legit. Or you would simply have those dumb annoying people who will thumb you down regardless just because they disagree with the video.

    On the other side, maybe if you can get a lot of thumbs up you can rank high without the need for more views?

    Who knows...

    Plus the favorite and thumbs up button is the same. This means I would rate the video less, and not want every video i rate 5 stars to go in my favorites.

    It sucks! It just doesn't feel right without the description and user info in the right side.
    youtube tends to fix what isn't broken.

    maybe they intend to get rid of the descriptions because of people leaving their links there and more related videos is good becayse its more likely for people t watch your vids after watching another one

    Yeah it looks like ass in my honest opinion... I am seeing a down grade on YT side. I guess us black hatters are taking over and big G can't handle it.
