Might Be Giving Up YouTube!

I never really thought I would actually do this, but I might be thinking of giving up YouTube. I haven't fully said yes or no yet. If I do, I will switch everything to Vimeo. I'm not sure yet though. There are a lot of things I like about YouTube still. For one thing, I've just made partner, and I could make some money through my videos. The reason I would be giving up YouTube is because I am hating their new layout! I don't like how they are going to change the look and feel of our channels! My channel shows who I am, and I like it that way. The new channel layouts hide everything, and I find it tough to navigate. I like going to other peoples' channels and reading what kind of person they are. With the new layout, you cannot do that. Also, all my friends cannot be displayed on my channel anymore, and I think that sucks! Another big reason I found out is YouTube changed the ability to post 500-character comments. They REDUCED it to only being allowed to post 200 characters per comment! Ya know that's why I don't use Twitter! I have a Twitter account. I have 2 in fact. But I hardly ever use them. I don't see the point. They only allow you to create posts that are no more than 140 characters long, and sometimes I have a lot to say! Now YouTube is using that method for comments, and that sucks! Again, sometimes I have a lot to say about a video, and I want to be able to say it without having a limit put on it, or having to type in cellphone-texting lingo!

Anyways, if I do quit YouTube, those would be the main reasons why. I was commenting on a video this morning, and that was when I noticed that now, YouTube only allows 200 characters per comment! 500 characters I could live with! But only 200??? No way! Not when I have a lot to say about a video, or a comment someone else leaves me. It'd be kinda sad to give up my YouTube account, I've had it for so long. I've had some fun with it too. There've been some bad times, but there's also been a lot of good times too. Though I talk a lot about the bad ones here, and have some fun too in the process, there's been some nice people I've met through YouTube as well. That's one of the reasons I stick around. The nasty people, I have fun ignoring them. Or I can also have fun playing a little sarcasm on them too.

Speaking of which, NewZealandKiwi is still trying to get my attention! LOL! I still just keep ignoring him. I think he's getting so desperate now for a response from me, he's attacking me on my own videos, again under different aliases. I just laughed at him, told him to shut up and get off my channel. Then I blocked his butt again. I know all these "people" commenting to me from his videos are him. For one reason, they always respond at exactly the same time NewZealandKiwi always responded to me, here it's usually between 12PM and 12:30PM. I don't know what time it would be for him, but who cares? I know all these different aliases belong to him, so I just ignore them. hehe! I totally delete them, unread! Well, I hope NewZealandKiwi has a Vimeo account, because if not, he's gonna go bonkers (even more so than he already is) because he isn't going to get a response from me. Like I said before, he's just wasting his time anyway. I never intend to say "I love panthers" in this lifetime again. Why should I? When there are even better animals out there. They're easier on the eyes too.

Well, I still haven't made up my mind. I don't know if I will be leaving YouTube. Maybe, maybe not. We'll see. I've adapted to changes before. But these changes that YouTube is making are a little bit extreme, even for me.
