    Hi,

    It looks like Youtube randomly provides the new or old page for the username during the channel creation. Does anybody know how to force Youtube to give the new username page ?

    Thanks

    Click on your name - youtube settings - advanced. There you will see the option for creating a username.

    at doxis - The new YT layout has indeed made it tricky to get a username. Please don't slant newbies for having a valid query.

    right I can see this option, but I would like to avoid the old username with the format ".../user/my_username" and prefer the new format type "...channel/youtube_generated_username". I have an average 70% with the new format and 30% with the old format type. I can't find a way to force Youtube to always provide the new channel page creation with their generated username, it looks to me that they randomly or selectively do it. I am not sure if it is possible to force it, maybe some youtube experts accounts creator know how to do it?
