    This maybe be obvious to some, but I'm trying to unsubscribe from someone's YT page and I can't seem to do that.

    For some reason with the changes at that site it took me a while to figure it out.

    YouTube in its "infident" wisdom fixed it to where once you subscribe to someone, or they subscribe to you, it can't be undone.

    It's just another one in a series of useless updates that nobody likes that just continues to clutter the site.

    For everybody's wisdom.

    Log into your YT account, top right hit subscriptions beneath your log in name.

    Now on the left hand side you will see who you are subscribed too.

    Click the subscription you want to remove, their page will load and directly opposite you will see 'Edit Subscription'

    Hit that, then click unsubscribe and update.

    Done and dusted :D

    You CAN unsubscribe from a channel. Just go to the user page, click "edit subscription," select "unsubscribe," and click "update."

    See? YouTube isn't evil.

    Welcome back Boober!

    YouTube's only evil under Google's ownership.

    Nah... just WMG and Viacom and all those companies that are too greedy to accept what Google promised to pay them from Ad revenues. :D

    My friend Lee directed me to a blog posting that relates to some of the issues that YouTube is creating by offering advertising with its videos. It's worth a read for those of us who like to post videos. Here's a quote:

    "YouTube requests that anyone who posts a video on their site be the person who created the video or owns the rights to the video. Everyone ignores this, most especially YouTube itself. . ."


    I'll hopefully be doing a blog post about this later this week as well.

    I dare somebody to name at least ONE person who actually does take the time to sit down and read the TOS/user agreements.

    I'm gonna come out right now and say it. I HATE when people put up popular movies that are either currently out in theaters or DVD. Or full current TV shows. Mainly because it puts pressure on people who just want to help out the fan base of an obscure or long lost TV series or movie... (do you really think anyone wants to release Twice Upon a Time?) In fact, an internet fan base can actually help out a dead franchise.

    Face it, we got the Mario cartoons because of all the mama Luigi stuff on youtube, and Dr. Robotnik is as popular as ever thanks to people who edit his lines to sound dirty. Rick Astley would have just been a cultural footnote, instead of an internet meme still used today. Look at that appearance he had on the 2008 (or was it 2007) Thanksgiving parade. That certainly helped out his career. Much like how Garfield minus Garfield mad the orange cat relevant again.

    Sure, we have pirates who want to put up current shows and it does hurt the studios (though, they have to accept the fact that television is dying anyway, and that's contributing to the problem much greater... plus there have ALWAYS been pirates before)... that I respect... but go after Torrent sites first. Don't toss people out for putting up old music videos that could be internet meme gold. Don't take down fan videos, no matter how tedious they are. And do NOT get rid of rare clips and shows no one can profit from either way... and if your company WANTS to get some notification, I dunno... put up your own channel, and support these videos by putting disclaimers that say "Contains content from X" (like Media Rights and CBS did for example). You're doing nothing but alienating people who are using your product as free advertising.

    I hear Joe Murray is actually happy with bootlegs and unofficial season sets of Rocko's Modern Life, saying that he's glad somebody's giving the Rocko fans what they want "because Nickelodeon sure isn't."

    As I understand it, Murray's actually trying to regain the rights to the show and the characters, that'd be interesting to see.

    The words "Good Luck" come to mind. Did he actually pay attention to what went down with John K and the dude that created Invader Zim? Nick never really liked their creators. But that's a different topic for another day. The only licencee that switched from Nick was when Disney made those new episodes of Doug... and then that just complicated things further, especially with Nick.

    Thing is, Matt and Trey, the creators of South Park feel the same way. They like people making fan videos and posting their stuff. It's just that Viacom probably wanted a LOT more money than YT was going to give them, and walked out like a baby, pulling everything sown. That's exactly EXACTLY what happened to WMG... they couldn't negotiate, so they acted like total babies, even pulling down things they dubiously claim to own. Even the TMNT theme song.

    Hey, I would feel the same way - that'd let me know that fans out there appreciate the work enough to show it... it's just hard to do when you don't work indepedently, and your creations are under the ownership of a larger corporation.

    Now it looks like all of the comments for the videos are gone.

    What's going on?

    They're most likely doing site maintenance, and adding comments, ratings and uploading is disabled until they're done.

    That's what griped me about Fraggle Rock. I see Baloobius' stuff was taken off, but it seems so arbitrary. Some of her songs and Matt's postcard segments remain, but a couple of songs were blocked. I mean, I can see how posting whole eps is bad once the DVDs are out, but song clips? Or, I had two videos, one about Fraggle shipping and one about the Fraggles wanting a movie. I dubbed some of the lines myself, maybe half the dialogue (in the second one ... in the first one, it was nearly all me). THEY GOT PULLED! Why in God's name did they get pulled? I made sure to make it abundantly clear it was unofficial fan stuff. It was just extremely irritating. That's why my RedPiggy's Realizations have just screenshots. I'm not in the mood to have it pulled again.

    That's because you hit the 'You will never be able to unsubscribe' button :insatiable: < Sorry : Joke

    Have you tried my instructions?

    Don't worry, that problem's been worked out.
