    YT is changing to the way I don't like.
    Well, the only feature that I like is the link that you can add on your top banner.

    Channels used to look personal and disconnected from YT. Now it just looks bland.

    Yeah my channels no longer have the secure look. It looks as if they're among all the other ones. How are we supposed to catch a viewers attention? :)

    Lol ;) I know :)

    This reminds me of when FB did their timeline changes. I guess we all have to either adapt to it or die :p.
    Also, this new layout will have your YT subscribe iMacro stop working :(

    When companies get too big they become too big to care about what their users think. Youtube has the video monopoly and they could do many things that piss people off and still not care.

    I don't like it honestly. I remember those good old 2008 youtube layout that was the most convenient that what we have nowadays.

    This is really BS. Looks like Google + is taking over all the services provided by google.

    I only just got Full Partnership Last week, had already made a great Banner, and then I found out about the switch over and was pissed. I get why they want it changed because the site layout now works on TV/Phones and Tablets, but yeah really does sting that you can no longer have a step up on the Normal Youtuber now...
    They should at least implement something that defines a difference between normal YouTube channels and Networked ones, maybe like Putting back the Clickable area, or an extra page section/option that you can't get when not Full Partnered.

    I remember ages ago when they changed their layouts and I ended up wasting time on my BG's. Fortunately I am on the commenting side of YT now, so I don't have to bother with having BG's on channels anymore :)

    Haha I received a e-mail telling me this too! I really wanted the old layout but I just created my account and was stuck with the new and "improved" one layout which "will increase views on your videos"...

    Ah, so YouTube's executives change the companies marketing strategies with the sole purpose of pissing people off.

    With big online businesses like this its more important than anything to keep the user satisfied. Look at Yahoo, Myspace and soon maybe Facebook.

    I also heard that new YT accounts have to use their G+ names and not usernames. Which I think inturn will leave spaces between our usernames and therefore look unprofessional.
