Top 10 Ways To Improve YouTube

The Top Ten

1 Stop copyrighting everything

This. This is painful to deal with and completely out of proportion. - PositronWildhawk

The biggest problem is that content creators on YouTube always get copyrighted and demonetized because another user claimed their content simply to get their money or just to make it harder on the rival YouTuber. - RogerMcBaloney

2 Fix the YouTube algorithm

The YouTube algorithm buries individuals who put time and dedication into making videos and rewards those who post long (10+ minute videos) 1-2 times per day. This hides great content from most people since it recommends the videos and channels with the most watchtime. Watchtime is the average amount of time users watch a video before clicking away. The longer a video is, the more likely someone is to stay. - RogerMcBaloney

3 Less advertising

Videos on YouTube get interrupted by quite a few ads. If they limited it to one ad per video, that would be way better (although let's be honest, we all use ad blockers so who cares). - RogerMcBaloney

Advertising dominates social media across all platforms. It's difficult to see the content due to the constant ads in your face. - jazzbea

4 More creativity and originality

YouTube used to be so creative back then, there were cool videos, some were funny, some even helped you learn things. Sadly, this isn't the case with YouTube nowadays, the videos you're seeing now are nothing but a bunch of crap done for nothing but attention and views, those people don't even know how to make good videos or be creative anymore.

I totally agree with this. Some of the top video hits are embarrassingly stupid. I am sure there are many creative and intelligent videos buried due to the number one choice on this list, bad algorithm.

Youtube died years ago. If there is an original video out there, then it's probably hidden from the public and has >100 views. Now they promote the popular YouTubers who make terrible 20-min videos everyday just to make $$$.

5 Don't delete inactive subscribers

Subscribers become inactive because they don't want to have to look at all the advertising! - jazzbea

6 Better recommendation system

I almost never get recommended good videos.

7 Delete T-Series's channel
8 Improve YouTube's comments section

The comments section used to be good a few years ago but nowdays they are terrible - ElSherlock

9 Stop demonetizing videos because of their content

Videos with guns in them for example. - RogerMcBaloney

10 Base YouTube Rewind on quality and not popularity / how "safe" the YouTubers featured play it

Put PewDiePie in Rewind or we’ll rebel

The Contenders

11 Flag inappropriate videos

People keep reporting inappropriate content, but the people working at YouTube don't do anything. - RogerMcBaloney

There are too many fetish videos and some din't even got deleted - ElSherlock
