4 The Comedy Is Gone

Was it ever there

My videos are funny watch them NOW jk they aren’t funny but I want views - sadical

Amen to that

5 Reliance on Shock Value
6 YouTubers Now Become Bad People

Pewdiepie doesn't deserve subs. He is racist.

*cough* Logan Paul - AliciaMae

So many of the big name channels that we all loved like Smosh have just fallen from grace and turned into garbage, there's almost no good channels anymore

Normally I’d just say the old talent is departing and new talent is stepping in but that’s not the case here, the old talent is departing but I’m not seeing any new talent

7 Buffering

I wanna demolish buffering - toshdeluxe

Buff buff buff buff buff bufff

Buff Buff buff that's all YouTube do even when it's important 😣😣😣😣

8 Swearing

The entire world isn't politically correct you know. This should not be number 8. Swearing is acceptable. It doesn't destroy buildings, so shut up you SJWs

Oh my god stop saying swearing is totally unacceptable and is one of the worst things about youtube

They swear too dang much - AliciaMae

I would be surprised if this entry isn't a joke - UnlawfulMatron

9 Copyright Strikes

At the 3rd strike they kill you (not really)

The worst!

I tried to watch "Hercules and the Apollo Mission" on YT but Disney blocked it because "it's their property"! >:(

I have 50 subscribers but I always get copyrighted 😭 - sadical

10 9-12 Year Olds Having Accounts

Not actually bad, but some of them don't respect opinions what ruins the comments sections quickly. - Userguy44

I have a 9 year old cousin and she has an account

Let me tell you about things you can get now, and things you have to wait for
this is one of those things you have to wait for, just use it anonymously - UnlawfulMatron

They are aspiring young stars

The Contenders

11 Plagiarism

This have plagiarism because different language top channels copy english channels by translating

12 The Channels Aren't Good Anymore

Smosh is a good example of a good channel gone bad. - AliciaMae

Metts is right

13 YouTube Kids Cartoons

They are just inappropriate. - DumbFriesNub

14 Google Buying YouTube in 2006

YouTube is dead. Letting Google buy it was a mistake. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

15 Clickbait

*cough* Morgz *cough* - sadical


Don't forget the clickbait video titles! That's just a waste of time. You see a certain title of a video, you click on it and the whole video is not related to the title like what

I'm looking at you MatPat and Game Theory! - DCfnaf

16 YouTube Heroes
17 Copy and Pasters
18 Copyright
19 Video Not Available On Mobile

Very pointless and stupid. I hate these

Someone take it off please

Why does thia even exist?

This sucks when you want to watch a music video and it doesn't work, the only way you could watch it is on computer or YouTube T.V. or video game app like videos unavailable on moble work on my ps3, and being unavailable I can only watch I got a feeling music video and I don't like the music video

20 Bad YouTubers

That's who we all have now, and we're getting more of them, even the best ones are turning into bad YouTubers.

21 Ridiculous Copyright rules

A YouTuber, Cosmodore, recently uploaded a video talking about Summer Camp Island. He used a few clips from the show, each were a few seconds long, and he got copyright notices for it. He later reupload the video, and by the way this happened just yesterday. - AliciaMae

I remember back in the early 2000's when you could get away with this stuff, like using other people's music in your videos or using a famous brand, nowadays doing that for even a few seconds will get you flagged for copyright

This is the reason why all the apps that were used to watch videos offline have stopped working. Stupid inconsiderate twats. - ThePwoperMuser101

22 The Video Takes A While To Load

I made an 8 minute video that took 50 minutes to upload - sadical

23 Misleading Thumbnails

No joke, I literally saw one video that which it's thumbnail was a picture of SpongeBob having anal sex with Princess Mindy. I clicked on it (I was just curious what the video was about. I'm not a pervert) and it had absolutely no sex in it at all.

Morgz made a video called “mailing myself in a box to tilted towers” and it was so obvious it was a green screen - sadical

24 "Message to the Haters" Videos

1: "People are hating my youtube channel! What do I do! "
2: "ignore th--" 3: "Make a video hating on them! "
1: "Brilliant idea 3! "
*1 proceeds to make a video, and gets more hate. never make these types of videos* - UnlawfulMatron

If you make a video like this, then that proves you take opinions too seriously.

The only "hater" around here is you, for "hating" on your "haters". Haterception.

People are allowed to have opinions on your channel. Not everyone is going to like it. Deal with it.

26 Darude - Sandstorm

This meme is getting annoying. It's very overused and I don't see why it's still funny. Stop with this people. Please! - Userguy44

Most of the time when I ask that question on YouTube, that is the answer I get.

If they don't know real song name, then they don't need to reply with "Darude - Sandstorm"!

It's that simple. They ask for the song title, TELL THEM THE TITLE!

27 10 Year Old Bratty Girls Who Post Videos With Their Boyfriend
28 Hateful Comments

I was a victim of the hateful comments thing myself, when I wasn't trying to be mean to someone on YouTube to tell them what I felt about how they're acting by clearly saying "not to be mean," before my response, the person then tried to argue with me as if I insulted or embarrassed him/her. (Then again I couldn't tell the person's gender because they had a anime profile picture)

I agree. I'm really starting to not like YouTube anymore, because it went from a bunch of weird, but funny viral videos, to non-stop drama, unoriginal and mostly unfunny videos, and people being rude, saying hurtful things like kill yourself! I actually had to delete one of my comments because people were still starting arguments with me after 2 months! So yeah. It's official! You are pretty much no longer allowed to voice your opinion unless the whole world agrees with it.

This makes me pissed off. What do you achieve with hating? - Userguy44

All these comments are just a bunch of whiny 12 year old pussies who hide behind the comfort of the internet because they don't have the balls to say that stuff in the real world

29 Popular YouTubers are immune to Flagging

It is because people type in the word porno and flag and terminate all users that made the results

30 Trolls

How is angering someone fun, again? Try doing it in real life.

Trolls are stupid

Those are bad here too. - DCfnaf

How to spot a troll/hater

They have a Minecraft profile pic

They have no content on their channel

They have bad grammar

They tell you to go kill yourself and then they run away

31 "Fake and Gay" Comments

Illogical 12 year olds.

32 Inappropriate Videos

And most of these are not age restricted. Luckily you can restrict your own videos but it’s an advanced setting

I swear, I encountered 6 UNCENSORED porn videos right on youtube.
a lot of the videos are ALMOST A YEAR OLD.

What, do you want everything on the internet to be appropriate for kids? - SammySpore

Videos need to be safe to watch, those with profanity or sexual content can harm our minds and negatively influence us, this is especially our biggest problem with YouTube these days. - nelsonerica

Yes, There are criminals out there that post bad images to YouTube.

33 Dumb Comments

I saw retarded comments on Joel's Vinesauce channel

One person confused Grand Theft Auto Vice City with Sonic Adventure

Another idiot confused Grand Theft Auto San Andreas's character Big Smoke with Bob Ross

And worse of all, they went along with those brain dead comments... - Gehenna

Comments of questions about who watches an old video in the current year is just simple and dumb. Well, it was fine for me the first when I saw someone ask it, but now I can find it on about every single old video with at least 1 mil views, and that's hella annoying!

Some comments that adventure time "fans" post on YouTube are sooo disrespectful!

Pseudo adventure time fans are very good at writing dumb comments on yotube...and not only there!

34 You Can No Longer Customize Your Channel

Go to Vidlii and BitView. They have those mechanics - Gehenna

35 Getting Suspended for No Reason

And unless you have a billion views & subscribers, you're not getting your channel back.
If YouTube could care less about you, they definitely would.

36 Harsh Comments

The bane of my existance - DrayTopTens

Me: I don't like metal.
Random Person: KYS IDIOT! - Userguy44

Commenter: nice video! keep up the work!

commenter: (guys name who liked the comment) cursety curse swear swear swear hate hate hate

*everyone begins fighting*

Wow is it, you realise that this is the WORST thinning about youtube not the best.


38 Annoying Users
39 Cyberbullies

THIS is the soul reason why I think YouTube should have to approve comment. If it's mean/offensive it DOSE NOT get approved, or maybe they should just get rid of commenting all together? You would just be able to like/dislike videos. - MJfan119

And the worst part of it is YouTube doesn't seem to give a flying banana about them. :( - MJfan119

Comments should be moderated

Especially the one where Miley Cyrus does it - Stazemar000

YoutTube errors--- they're here to annoy us all! - Stazemar000

Oh yeah, like there’ll ever be a later! Seriously!

42 Popular annoying YouTube Partners

Onision, PewDiePie, Smosh, you name it.

43 YouTube Poop

Some could be done correctly, and at least have a story.
Others just think random is funny (which isn't) - UnlawfulMatron

Cs188's poops are AWESOME! Most other YTPs are dumb.

Why would anybody wanna watch this stuff? YouTube poop videos are equivalent to pornos and snuff films.

They're not suitable for work and probably not suitable for life.

45 Package Opening Videos

All they are is opening a package and play with it that is a waste of life

46 "First"

Wow! Congratulations! Good for you! Here's Your PRIZE! *fires pistol at the comments* - Gehenna

Wow! You're first! You earn nothing at all!
What's that? You tapped on a notification and sent a comment faster? You deserve my children!
Woah bro! Did you just comment FIRST one second after the video got released? HOLY NUTSACKS! Take my money! All of it!
Or, you could just comment something related to the video. Which is more tolerable. - UnlawfulMatron

Congratulations to the ten people who were first on the most recent video on YouTube! - AliciaMae

So annoying. People think they're cool when they do this. - Userguy44

47 They Took Away Chat Rooms

They still have them, they are just hard to find

Yes, there was a time when YouTube actually had chat rooms, but they were taken away in 2010.

48 Video Is Not Available In Your Country

This is so dumb my favorite nhl team in my country streamed an event live, now the playback is blocked in canada, but lucky they put clips up from this, and 2 preseason games when my canada team vs coytes and other time when it both canada teams got blocked in canada this made me mad! Why block it in canada when probably 90% fans are from canada, they should of blocked it in like russia or sweeten or something but not in canada or usa

Well, that is one great example of being as a racist.

Oh my god! I absolutely HATE it when this happens! Why the hell does YouTube even have this every once in a while? That's something I'd like to know! - Stazemar000

I hear most videos aren’t available in Germany. - AliciaMae
