Speaking for the majority of the YouTube community, we are utterly horrified at the new layout and I truly hope YouTube will hear the cries of the loyal users.
These new designs severely decrease the productivity of YouTubers. This completely removes most forms of customization which is what YouTube is all about, how are video creators supposed to express themselves if the channel design is a white page, with a few small pictures?
The current design is perfect as it gives the creator a feel that their own channel is unique, as-well as provides smaller channels a chance to grow.
Please YouTube, hear our cries and strongly reconsider this decision.
