    Why the f** did youtube remove the honor/statistics features???? Why do these social media sites keep shooting themselves in the foot.

    It would be better if they just accepted spam, and left everything the way it was.

    Old youtube rocked.

    They didn't actually remove the honors/stats feature. They just moved it to the most dumb assed place.

    You need to click the graphic showing the number of likes/dislikes to see the stats/honors. No ****ing logic to why they planted the VIEWING stats at a place that shows who liked the video and who did not like.

    Also notice how HUGE the video count font is now, like we're a bunch of blind old farts or something.

    Yup, you're right. They're digging their own graves with these so called "improvements". It's a joke now.

    Youtube is a big waste of time and will eventually go down the same path that myspace did.

    A new site will come up and get spammed for a while, then make improvements, go down the drain, and a new site will come up, etc.

    lmao to the people saying YouTube is killing itself. Killing itself to who? Spammers? That's pretty much all you guys want to do is spam. What about legit YouTubers? You guys are a mess. I am still making money off the cash cow that is youtube and will always make money whether they move the "honors/statics" feature or not. It has nothing to do with views or conversions whats so ever, and if you want to see your video statistics they have a way to look at it from your user menu.
