Top 10 Ways YouTube Sucks Now

YouTube was once so great to go on back in the day.

But recently, it has become a piece of bullcrap like nothing else.

Some might agree or disagree with what's said on here, but it's the truth, no harm done.

Here are the reasons why YouTube sucks nowadays.
The Top Ten
1 Copyright Paranoia

YouTube, what are you doing? The copyright is bullcrap, it's even going to lose you money. The copyright system is flawed to the point were it's just so easy to falsely claim copyright, the claimer when they are caught doesn't even get into terrible for it. It just takes 3 flawed claims to ruin a entire channel, or life depending on what channel is deleted. Do you even know what the word "fair use" even means? Legit parodies are getting taken down, PARODIES, are you kidding me? Well, YouTube probably won't see this, but whatever.

2 Too Many Advertisements

Not gonna lie, one time I was watching YouTube on TV and what came up was A 6-HOUR AD! Thank God that it had a skip button though, and I've seen much longer ads from reading about YouTube online. One of them was 24 HOURS!

There are ads that are like an hour long! Yes you can skip them but if I'm listening to music or something and I just leave my phone playing I have to go over to my phone just to skip. Then there is the double ads where there are literally 2 in a row! Or when you have a 5 minute video with an ad before, middle, and after! All this does is turn people off. 95% of YouTube I watch on PC so I can run AdBlock, if it wasn't for the ad spam they would have made more advertising money of me. These are just the problems with the ads but of course YT has many more problems. (Censorship of Speech, Demonitization, False Copyright, Left Wing Bias, world's worst trending page that consists of 50% LGBTQ make-up tutorials, 40% Ads, and 10% music videos. They claim to be a platform, but they haven't been a platform in years.

3 Clickbait

One of my biggest pet peeves. I'm sick of seeing video thumbnails with exposed body parts (yes if you use the view source feature and search for og:image youll see the full size image) flung all over YouTube. There are so many videos with this that I am sure children are seeing because I don't sign into YouTube. Thus proving that there is no maturity filter present. Thanks click bait... Because idiots click that crap in the hopes of actually seeing what is depicted in the picture more and more crapbait exists.

4 Buffering

What happened to the commentary? I agree, I found this site because I was unable to find a way to increase the buffer size in video downloads. I have a slow connection and use to buffer a video while I did something else. Now I have to watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, watch 3 seconds of a video, wait, get the idea?

5 Good Videos Get Removed While Bad Videos Don't

It's such a shame that people's favourite channels, including my own personal favourites, get taken down for stupid reasons or no reason at all while YouTube doesn't even bother dealing with idiot jerks and criminals like SSSniperWolf.

Parody channels that make people laugh are often shuttered while channels harassing others stays.

Whoever the idea of bad video staying. It gets more views with negative comments.

6 Susan Wojcicki

Yes! She's one of the worst CEOs of YouTube. My account was successful then it got terminated because of the false flagging and I tried to appeal but it doesn't work, she's also a helpless person. She should be fired forever! She is the one who keeps on kicking out small channels who are trying to be successful but she keeps the big YouTubers on YouTube. That's why many people hate her! Good her videos get a lot of dislikes.

She deserves to be throw down the death star reactor. Many of my favourite channels like Armchair Historian, Dr Ludwig, amounts many other historic and gaming channels.

7 Double Ads

Constantly, the same bad adverts. I am making a habit of NOT buying anything from an advert on YouTube until there are less ads

Double ads are the one of the most annoying thing in Youtube. A video needs two ads before it plays. Some of them takes 15 seconds and it's unskippable.

Not only repetitive ads but same industry too. And every 10 minutes, it's disgusting.

8 No More Originality

I agree with many of the things that everyone says here and I also want to add that it's exceptionally hard to find actual good, artistic videos these days.

I had just posted a lego war video on my channel. It was stop motion and I had been working on it for about 3 months. I posted an I thought to myself, hey, maybe my first video will be a hit. So about 2 weeks later I check on how the video had done and I was speechless at what I had seen. My channel had deleted. And for what reason? For the usual things that Susan deletes small channels for. Probably because she had seen my video, which the bad guy of it was named not Susan Wojcicki. And boom. 3 months of hard work gone. And all because I was thinking of doing something original. My idea was to create a lego war show that deals with the aftermath. But no. Susan says no.

9 Doesn't Care About Smaller Channels

This is all because of that Susan Wojcicki MORON who only wants money from the bigger creators. It's not that hard to help smaller channels, c'mon!

Why isn't this higher on the list? In my opinion, this is the main reason why YouTube stinks nowadays. YouTube fails to support newer channels, which is leading to a lack of original content. Also, YouTube is not giving any opportunities to smaller channels. Several YouTubers have had to quit YouTube to find jobs, and this is because YouTube is not supporting them. The new YouTube policy is a huge middle finger to smaller YouTube channels. YouTube clearly does not care about smaller channels, and this is the absolute worst.

10 Disgusting Jokes

Also the reaction channel's are so bad I can't believe people actually call that talent and call themeselfs You tubing people. Silly as jokes is annoying and doing anything to get attention I miss eating people making stories.

I always hate disgusting jokes.

The Contenders
11 Cringe Compilations

It doesn't even help the kids who are called "Cringy" with their videos. It just shames and bullies innocent kids instead of giving them helpful feedback and constructive criticism. And the video's aren't even cringeworthy. I wish these videos were replaced with giving beginners advice.

Why would you want to watch a bunch of videos that are all either disturbing to watch or just complete cancer?

Cringe comps aren't that bad
I tried to make 3 cringe comp videos and they got lots of views within a few weeks...

12 COPPA Update

This update ruined animated videos for me because now, I can't read any comments to see what people think of a particular cartoon!

YouTube is going to go downhill soon because lots of YouTubers aren't able to post their content they want and they have to use clean words, youtube was so simple and now it's just like a website that North Korea has made! A popular YouTuber should start a new website to post videos anyway! Because I can tell you right now, they are doing this to remove all non family friendly channels and they are trying to delete YouTube kids so that the normal YouTube will become a kids YouTube! A YouTuber just needs to make a new alternative to take over YouTube because I think by 2025, YouTube is a fully functional kids website!

13 Demonetization

Well then maybe don't revolve your life around sitting on your ass all day making gaming videos for YouTube as your "job" and this wouldn't be a problem. YouTube was never supposed to be a job, and I'm getting sick of people treating it like it is.

How is this not in the top three? I notice people are getting demonetized for really stupid reasons. There are some that happened for no reason. I wish it never existed.

Yeah, this is another beef I have. YouTube demonetizing every time someone uses a short clip to make a point. Where's the Fair Use?

14 Kids Cartoons

How to make a YT "kids cartoon
1. Put on either Disney princesses and Spider-Man for seemingly no reason or creepy babies with eyes that almost never blink.
2. Throw in a nursery rhyme that teaches lying to children (Johnny Johnny) or a song that has overstayed its welcome 2 months ago (baby shark)
3. Make sure your animation is so bad, it gives "Ratatoing" a run for it's money.
4. Throw in at least five stupid "trends" such as fidget spinners or the ice bucket challenge. Congrats! You have made a video that nobody over the age of 2 can't figure out the purpose of its existence!

15 No More Entertainment

I'm 14 and I must honestly say when I first started seeing ads on YouTube was back in 2015. I was all like well this is new. Everything is not good anymore. Music has been dead since 2004 2005 something like that. I was only 1 or 2 when music popularity when't just garbage. Also their are a lot of rude jerks in this world. Not just on YouTube but also real life. I was wearing my Oilers hat when this little ignorent God awful piece of crap called it garbage. I wanted to kick his stupid teeth in. I hope he gets knocked out. He is a dumbass. His personality is garbage. He is like 12 to 13 or something. But anyway let's get back to talking about YouTube. I still watch older YouTube videos from 2010 and 2013. But nowadays their are just stupid trolls in the comments. I hate that. I wan't YouTube to get better.

16 Removal of the Dislikes Count

I read that the reason why the dislike counter was removed was to prevent people spamming "dislike attacks" to certain creators. Realistically speaking, did we REALLY need this update? Did the content creators actually CARE about these so-called "dislike attacks"? NO! And removing the dislike counter just makes it even MORE difficult to find good videos on this broken site! Might as well just remove the dislike button altogether at this point.

This is probably the worst thing YouTube has done in the recent years. It's worse than the Coppa policy, adpocalypse and everything else. Susan Wojingpei just wants to protect herself and big corporations from constructive criticism so she removed the dislike count and she used small creators, which she never wanted to see succeed as as excuse to justify all this. Also it's pretty pointless because the user still has the option to disable ratings on their videos. The only hope for YouTube to survive is to force them to fire Susan.

17 Account Termination for No Apparent Reason

When I said that PETA is the most hypocritical company, YouTube actually isn't that far behind. They terminated Mumkey Jones just for making a satirical video about Elliot Rodger, yet both Logan Paul and Peluchin Entertainment only got a slap on the wrist for severely violating the Terms of Service. Logan Paul laughed at a man who committed suicide at the suicide forest, while Peluchin Entertainment brutally beat his pet cat to death. And no, the number of subscribers is not an excuse since Mumkey Jones had more subscribers prior to his termination than Peluchin Entertainment has today.

18 No More Creativity

YouTube used to be so creative back then, there were cool videos, some were funny, some even helped you learn things.

But 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, even the DIY projects aren't creative, they're more like poop builds rather than actual DIY projects, the results are garbage.

Nobody is good at them anymore, and I agree with that guy who brought our "favorite character" back for a sequel, but still, we've lost the wide range of creativity we used to have on YouTube.

19 Bullying Comments

When you see a video, you comment on it, but then not long afterwards, there were people posting mean comments about the videos and other people, some even said they want to f others off or even kill them.

Many even made fun of other people and/or their bodies/body parts and used the wrong words.
And some even said "kill it with fire" and that isn't even the worst, the worst is "if you don't like them, don't watch them", it's so mean because they're telling the others to go away/to h just because they don't like the videos/people.

Opinions exist, but mean comments are unnecessary and only hurt other people's feelings, and can even cause fights, which would ruin their lives, yet that's bullying and that's one of the worst things in the world.

It's one of the main things that ruined YouTube.

20 Retro Hipster Kids that Think They're the Best Because They Like Pop Culture from the 1950's, 1960's, and 1970's While Their Peers Don't

Why isn't this number 1? I hate it in the comments when old people are like "Our generation was better! " Then cherry-pick information about what kids today do. I'm a kid and I don't go drinking and twerking at parties. I bet 99.9% of what they think about kids is what they see on those "shocking" news channels where the kid(s) get kidnapped by a pedo for posting some nudes on Instagram or whatever. And then those, "Kids these days lie, cheat, and steal." Like yeah, you've never lied to your mom to get a candy bar, never looked over someone's shoulder on a test, never took something without asking in your ENTIRE LIFE.
It's even more annoying when teenagers try to copy those old people by trying to be "edgy" by hating on popular things for no reason. Just because someone shakes their butt ONCE then they hate the song/video and then they try to say that ALL videos are like that. There WERE songs and video like that back in the "good old days" except they were mostly hidden due to there being a lot less internet users that there were back then. And don't let me get started on those "I wish I didn't live in this generation so I could see all the greats..." kind of people.
The point is, it's ok to like old stuff, but it's annoying to shove it in other people's faces and say that you're somehow a better person because of it.

21 YouTubers Not Handling the Slightest Amounts of Criticism
22 Game Theorist Fans

To all matpat fans, shut up! You keep getting pissed off when we disprove a theory, you keep spamming "Mario is mental, matpat is right! ", and finally, you spawned one of the worst fandoms in 2017. Hopefully you know what it is (It's not really Cuphead. Someone else caused the fandom to become rabbid).

Not the biggest thing but god will they ever shut up about disproved "theories? " Do they even know what theory means?

What's wrong with game theorists! At least we don't spend all our time playing fortnite

23 Advertisement Friendly Guidelines
24 Trolls Everywhere

The problem of the system of YouTube which is full of mutants. It's like Stalker Zone.

This was always on the internet but I hate those.

Imagine someone hurt themselves because of trolls smh. Trolls are hurtful narcissists.

25 Bad Video System/Quality Controls

Old YouTube, you click the quality you want, you play it, and you can skip back forward with minimal buffering. Current YouTube, you click the quality you want, click play, wait 20 minutes to buffer, hope that your quality doesn't drop to 144p, and maybe, if you're lucky after 5 refreshes, your video plays.
