Unnecessary YouTube changes

Some of you might have heard about YouTube's most recent changes:
Customized thumbnails for partnered channels.
And that only a few days after releasing a blog post about how thumbnails are supposed to be more random now, so they actually represent the content of your video and cheating was supposed to be history.

Yeahhhh right.
I mean sure, it says you're supposed to be following the TOS when uploading a customized thumbnail, but still.. that's pretty much open for interpretation now, isn't it?

Alright so I don't wanna bore you with more rambling on about this, bottom line: It's dumb, and unnecessary and stupid and blah. The end.

(Then again, you can just have a little fun with it.. demonstrated in the pictures below ^_^)


  1. what can i say? one more reason to become a partner :)

  2. Couldn't agree with you more, Miss Südfrucht.
    Google really caved in to the protests from partners there... how whimpy. The new system is wide open to manipulation and branding, yäch!

  3. Is there a possiblity to thumb up Mr. Winters comment?
