    Well... I'd say Barney is a little tolerable as opposed to Dummy Poo Poo... at least there's SOME relevance there...

    Yes and at least it's preschool related. So you are right there. But the Twilight trailer is getting quite annoying.

    Actually...

    know what really fixes this problem? Watch a lot of the EXACT same thing as much as possible over and over for a couple weeks. I got a crapload of Parappa the Rapper stuff in my recommendations that way, and it was all stuff I already watched, too. And NO Honey Dew Dews.

    Perhaps, though I do try to clean out my watched/history as often as possible, but sometimes, if there are a few videos I'm particularly into, I'll keep them there until I tire of them... so some how, one of those Classic SST, or Hogan vids is responsible for Honey Poo Poo to keep popping up in my recommended, but I just can't figure out which.

    But it doesn't matter too much today, considering this crappy new homepage gives you an option to not list recommended videos.

    But there's another fundamental flaw with the new homepage: you don't get any notices for comments, PMs, etc. I just ended up finding about six comments or so that I didn't know about because I had no notices on the homepage. Also, once again, you're not given an option to view JUST uploads, instead, your "subscriptions" feed contains BOTH what your subscriptions have uploaded, and what they've commented on, liked, etc... like, no offense Drtooth, but I'm more interested in seeing what you've uploaded, and not seeing every single video you've given thumbs up to. :smirk:

    But in D Snowth's case he can't even escape Honey Poo Poo outside of YouTube. :p

    Well, I got yet ANOTHER strike, that apparently is my official "strike 2", which means I'm on the verge of losing my account... but get this...

    So anyway, I got a strike from truTV because I posted a few World's Dumbest clips... now then, I posted those very recently, and they got removed because of the copyright claim and everything... I've been flagging that same Honey Poo Poo vid that's been slipped into my recommended (everyone's been complaining of child abuse, so that's what I've been flagging it for) for a MONTH, and it's STILL up.

    Just shows to go you, unless you give YouTube money, you're completely insignificant.

    Pretty much. I made a Muppets slideshow using "Pictures In My Head" well guess what? Ended up being blocked because of copyright reasons! All I could think of was so its okay for people to upload a whole movie on YouTube but its not ok for me to just upload a simple slideshow not using any video clips at all??? So needless to say I had to take it down. Ugh!

    Well, now the homepage is, once again, back to abnormal. Huh-ray.

    And you probably just jinxed yourself.
  11. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well, as much as I really didn't want to, but since I was running out of time, I went and made my channel (the GroverKent one) public, so YT won't delete all of my videos, comments, playlists, etc, like for some reason, that's some kind of take that gesture to people who refuse to let their channels be seen.
  12. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Crapamaggot, that new new new new new new new homepage is back again. :smirk:
  13. Pinkflower7783

    Told you you jinxed it. :p
  14. D'Snowth

    And now it's back to abnormal again for some reason...

    In the words of Gordon (from MADtv anyway): what IS goin' on?

    YouTube is trying to make you loose your mind.

    Somehow, I get the feeling this is actually going to cause more harm than good... who knows, they may actually completely remove videos for containing copyrighted songs, as opposed to just slapping them with matched third party claims.

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    Pshh three of my videos on YouTube have already been slapped with those party claims. But yet they don't flag a whole movie for being uploaded. -_-

    Hey, you can always try moving the videos over to another site like Veoh. Then again, those sites are nowhere near as popular as youtube. Incidentally, I love how people actually bothered to create "veoh poops", "dailymotion poops", "google video poops", etc.

    Yeah but like you said who checks those. I post them on YouTube cause that's mostly where everyone goes. Two of my videos are blocked in Germany. XP
