    Not necessarily.. I can still sign up yt accounts using hotmail, ymails by adding them onto google accounts. Ya, I just made a few moments ago.

    1. Get a Hotmail Account, Yahoo or what ever!
    2. Go and Create a G+ Account with your Hotmail/Yahoo.
    3. Now goto Youtube and Login using the Hotmail/yahoo.
    4. It's as simple as that :)

    yes. this is true. just be logged into your gmail when you are at youtube homepage, and then click "create account"

    your new gmail will automatically be linked to your youtube acct since google owns youtube :eek:

    simple, i have done it many times :)

    That's the only way to make YT accounts now... It's getting harder and harder.

    No not gone! Just hard for most and still very easy for a few! I like to think of it as natural selection... :D

    When I try and create a Google+ account it says that I need a Google account? I've tried what was posted above by the Indian Heart Break Kid, but that doesn't work anymore. That's what I was using too.
