YouTube is getting rid of the Annotations system!

Postby FireyPaperMario » Tue Mar 21, 2017 3:37 pm

For those who didn't check YouTube, the YouTube staff is getting rid of the entire Annotation system in May 2, 2017! So after that date, no one can create nor edit new annotations in their videos. But, any annotations made in videos before May 2nd can stay forever!

How many are fucking pissed about this god-awful update??? :twisted:

I don't really care since I don't use annotations that much. But I bet the people that use them often are gonna start complaining, no doubt. YouTube staff might be replacing it with a newer feature or something like that, but a lot of people are going to be pissed because they've been using them for years.

Apparently it's because oh noes they don't work on mobile devices, you know, those things that keep increasing in power like every other electronic device and should be able to handle (random feature) at some point in the future? So much for being forward-thinking.

I kinda second this. It's fairly annoying at times when a video is completely cluttered with link frames, and I don't think they're really mandatory for anyone.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

Having no more annotations is basically a good and bad thing. Sure, we won't be able to fix errors through annotating them in the video, and we won't be able to place links at appropriate times in videos, but really, did ANYONE like it when people would place video-sized annotation links to subscribe or whatever? I guess it all depends on how people used annotations.

Eh feature removal is pretty dumb, especially something that's as widely used as this (though to be fair end screens are a lot more popular these days).

Also that's terrible Spinda :/

I like that YouTube advocates for free speech and then blocks free speech, it's like a repeated kick to the groin. With steel-toed boots. That have cleats. And are on fire.

Yes, I thank them for that, but at the same time, they make really dumb decisions. Seriously, what the hell? Annotations have not only been around for a very long time, but they've been a super important part of Youtube. Annotations help get people into the Youtubers' channels because you can post links and be like "If you like this, then watch this!" And it helps them gain more views. I don't know much about how Youtube works, but I wonder how this is gonna take a toll on popular channels, since they use annotations for that reason. There are also videos that NEED annotations for whatever the uploader's intentions are. I know a lot of people are saying this, but Youtube's going to shit. Not only are they making dumb decisions, but people are making tons of money by following the same stupid algorithm or whatever. Clickbait thumbnails, titles in all caps saying "YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT" and they're putting less and less effort into their video because they already make tons of money anyway. People just flock to whatever they upload and praise it. The only reason people keep going back to the site is because it's the ONLY relevant video sharing site on the internet. There's no better place to start a channel because every other site that's dedicated to video sharing died out. I have sort of a love-hate thing going on with Youtube right now. I want to see it become not shit because again, it's the ONLY place to watch videos online anymore, but hey, anything that becomes popular turns to shit eventually. People like to milk things for what they're worth, and stuff that's milked to hell is what's popular nowadays.

I honestly don't mind of the annotation system by myself... I mean heck you can't see any annotations when you are on a phone or maybe any other kind of devices besides Desktop and such but I get the whole "getting mad about losing annotations since the things that has been used a lot is getting removed from YouTube". Besides you can simply add messages into your videos anyway with a video editor if you want and also YouTube has a reason why they're doing it and it's for pleasing everyone with any kind of devices to see videos on full glory instead of being limited to desktop users with annotations and such... of course it's a minor change to that but still, reasons been made!
