3:25 I saw a Polish interview and a Tekkit Classic video :-D
the Platinum years (2005-2007) & Golden years (2008-2010) was the shit, back then; no live streaming or nothing else like it is today. (I missed those years 😕🙁😭) + Just the good old star ratings, layouts, PM-(private messages), top comments, no click-baits, & etc. (thanks to Google.....YouTube is officially dead forever)

Way a go YouTube. Your slander comments really killed us all. Whenever happens to the good old days. People from this place used to be talented, and now this so called trolling, so called randomness really kicked away our knowledge.

i have come and gone from many websites over the years but there is only ONE website that i have consistently been a part of and active on since roughly around 2007 or 2008, and that's Youtube. i have so many memories on this website, though i have made a few accounts over the years (this one is the most recent and i think ill stick with it) and i don't really upload much, im still here after so many years. i may complain about the changes (the new channel layout is awful!) i just put up with it cause i love the wide variety of content from so many sources and the communities. i feel that Youtube used to be a bit more social though, like you could have friends and i would chat with them often on their channels, and send PMs. maybe someday some of these features might return. i know that there is still channel discussion, but i just feel Youtube used to be more close knit. is it just me or has anyone else noticed this?

I actually remember the IOS version of YouTube OH MY GOD THE MEMORIES 3D borders... No flat stuff No Jake or Logan Paul.. (Almost) no clickbait... It ALL changed in 2013. HECK, YOU CAN RATE VIDEOS BACK THEN TOO. Now, both the app versions and PC/Mac versions are flat as F and there is clickbait everywhere you see. Also, Watch Later sucks, and no one I know uses that

The first time that I accessed youtube was around june of 2005, so I remember very well that "first" design after the beta version. and damn, that design from 2006 to 2008 give me terrible memories, worst times in my entire life, I remember how I was hours listening a lot of musics trying to forgot my depression, I have to admit, this site helped me a bit. the things was better before google put your dirty hands in this awesome site, we was able to find many useful or different videos, for me it was crucial for my research about car structure, but when google bought the site, they banned these videos, the reason was totally retarded "too violent", and me: "AAAAAAAAAAAAA"

I really loved the 2011 layout. In March 2012 they forced the new layout on me and I've been bitter ever since.
terasss2 (6 months ago)
Layout of today + content of 2005-2010 = Perfect video sharing platform. I loved the content back in the day- GTA Stunting, genuine people sharing their lives and a bit of music. Nowadays it's all about clickbait, fake pranks, commentary channels and let's plays. By the way, 2013 was the worst in terms of functionality because of Google+ being forced onto us. Luckily they don't do that anymore.

i dont get why people care about some people use youtube for buisness and making a living off it... are you all that retarded to let that bother you? you can still create your own videos free of charge same as you allways were able too..... not to mention that theres alot of free and interesting to watch content on youtube thanks to people earning enough to actually live off it so they can dedicate more time into making amusing content..... like seriosly guys think about what you're saying before you speak

They're talking about the differences between the original layout and the new layout. If you have no clue what's going on. Then this video is ONLY for the old school YouTube. I mean, look at the community. Does it getting better or not?

I had iPhone 4 at the time and boy the YouTube App had a cool looking old TV fast foward till today and all you have is a big red oval looking square with a weird shaped looking play button and now YouTube generates random videos so I'm about to jump ship I am probably the only one in the world that for the last 10 years have spent multiple hours on YouTube I can't stand what it's becoming
John Smith (7 months ago)
Ok ok ok so where to start so pretty much from 2005 to 2011 YouTube was mostly browsed through PC but then the YouTube mobile kicked off from 2012 through today 2018 now everyone has a smartphone and with and with just a decent camera you could upload numerous videos but it's actually too late the government bought out the likes and the trending so YouTube is now deemed useless !!
10 year later I feel like becoming youtuber as a job is the easiest way to get much more around 1million money a month for no dam reason XD but the only hardest part in order to get that is subscribe up to million, and viewing your cool video up to million as well (If I'm not wrong) cause there's a bunch of billions people stuck watching famous people such as pewds, mark, jack, vanoss, and others rather then watching newbie youtuber :/

The YouTube layout should stay the same but little bit improved. I also wish now people can't steal people usernames and the URL is always becomes /user/ instead of /channel/(id) But we to deal with this now :-/ I mean to layout for channels btw. Also maybe 2025 Youtube will probably will be dead or better again like in 2011/12 was perfect

2005-2013 were the good years. Less about how many likes you got and/or subscribers and more about just making videos for the fun of it, as well as authentic content. REAL content. Miss the older days.
