"Context matters" Dislikes are without context, that's why they removed them. So, basically 2:35, that means you completely define if a video is worth your time by the like/dislike ratio. The comments are the things with context, you could always look at them. I almost never come across a video, especially review videos, without any comments. The majority of these comments always seem to say something about the quality of said video. Can these comments be taken seriously? I don't know. At least they're words. Both as a creator and a watcher, words are something you can work with, downvotes aren't.

let's react by not clicking neither likes nor dislikes. (or, simply emigrating to another plattform)

I think you're wrong about this. Hearing you explain why this is a problem is exactly why I disagree. If you go to a video and you see there's more dislikes than likes then you automatically will dismiss that video without even taking the time to see that person's perspective on whatever the topic is. Obviously you know there are people who just dislike people's videos for no reason. It's like two people having an idea but one of them is dressed nice and the other one is just kind of dirty so you automatically just dismiss his idea and don't even want to hear it just because of his appearance and that's morally wrong. Simply because just because the one guy is dressed nice or doesn't mean his idea is better.

I'm surprised the top comments is not the actual issue here. Who benefits from removing the dislike button? Its companies who make false/misleading/toxic videos/advertisements or bad products. Blizzard entertainment or Gillette or any of the countless others who have produced content that the public did not like. They are who benefit, advertisers for google, they are the customer, we are just the users.

Like, what's the point of removing it? ILfor says they are removing it because they want to protect small creators. I do understand though, like example a ILforr made a video that is really hardworking to make, then some people just dislike it which is annoying. But now, thanks to ILfor. We will see a rise in people getting hacked by tutorial videos where they tell you to download some shady crap or click shady links, or simply bad tutorials that can potentially cause more problems than solve. Nobody even wanted this trash update to ILfor.

It doesn't even solve the problem of youtuber mental health, the content creator can still view their own ratio if they are curious enough... and the ones having a hard time dealing with this stuff will be curious enough

As someone who downloads software and small dlc/modifications for games from youtube, checking dislikes and comments is what leads me to know whether it doesn't work, or maybe even if it is malware. Luckily there are chrome extensions that show dislikes for you, so cheers to that. I look at this like it is, for example, a yelp page for a restaurant. It's like you find this restaurant that you're not so sure about, so you check the reviews. But they're either only positive, or you have to read through the whole thing (like comments) to find out what you want to do.

Can't content creators hide the like/dislike bar anyways if they want to? Having a dislike counter lets people glance whether the information they are seeing is reliable. There's literally thousands of downsides to this.

All of dislikes will now be represented in the comments - which will be much more* than just a simple dislike.. if content creators are emotional injured from a dislike button count, imagine how injured they'll be from the bombardment of negative comments!

It's because of a lot of political stuff getting downvoted as well as the majority of people not liking mainstream forced content. ILfor is removing the dislike button because they want to censor your opinion

It makes no sense to have a dislike button if you’re not gonna let people see the amount of dislikes a video has. this hurts more people than it helps. Imagine you’re in this situation. You’re in a car with your family and you wanna play some music so you have to search for the “clean” versions of songs. You click on a video but you can’t actually see how many likes - dislike ratio it has so you don’t know how well they clean up the song. this also ruined all videos that had a massive amount of dislikes FOR A REASON. and the videos where likes and dislikes were perfectly balanced and now that is gone forever thanks ILfor

I, as a creator, can say that haters will hate and I admit that dislikes sometimes hit me. But mostly it's not because my content is bad, as the dislike ratio is just around the 2-5%. It's rather a small group that seems to always dislike my videos religiously - pure spite and hate. Rather than deleating the dislike function, ILfor should monitor the activity and interaction of sed viewers. If a person dedicates themselves to spreading dislike after dislike on the videos of a single creator, the algorithm should ban them from continuing to do so. Just like it can detect posible harmful or harassment activity in the comment section, they could detect down voting sprees and bombing. They have the tools to detect these people who only want to affect negatively the creators. I think that should be the way to go, not deleting the button.

They must have gotten complaints from the many quick money grab video creators that use click bait-y titles and fake screen shots because nobody watches their crap long enough after seeing the amount of dislikes.

spacejam242000 3 שעות לפני
So true you said this perfectly!! YT is my favorite social media platform and for the first time, i'm quite upset. I think this will encourage clickbait and scams more than protect the "dislike bombing." Plus, context is important- now there is no context. I don't want to waste my time. Plus, it feels good to give a video you like a "like" to help the creator. Sometimes I will do it because there are dislikes and I want to give them more likes. I think this will disincentivize liking videos and the value of a like also loses value because there is no context.

ILfor could have just given the creator the option to hide just the dislike count, like how they give the option to hide the like and dislike count. (Although I would prefer no change, this would be less severe.) Personally I don't like options that hide information.

Funny how they say they did it for small creators, who are the ones whose videos and comments denouncing it will be less visible by default, and on this video alone there's multiple comments from big creators who think it is in fact bad. It's as if they tried to contrive themselves a default out. It's just the sort of thing a bunch of self important suit dummies would try, as if they're smarter than literally billions of viewers combined. At least if they told the truth I could respect that.

I think one thing thats important to note is that mass disliking is seen as this always negative thing. Well its not, look back to the call of duty infinite warfare trailer. It was review bombed beacause activision wasn't listening to its fans so fans showed them. Same thing happened recently with Nintendo and its online service price increases. Mass disliking something isn't always a negative and often can be a tool for consumers to really force a company to acknowledge them and their complaints. Even mass disliking has an important function.

Well we can already see how this is exclusively to protect big brands. The trailer for HBOs Santa inc had around 1.2k likes and 14k dislikes. Now it just seems like it only has 1.4K likes and even tho it’s probs gonna be bad I wouldn’t ever know unless I sifted through comments hell if I hadn’t had prior knowledge I woulda probs wasted time and money on it. U could say that the feature was always there to disable but they know that if u are a big brand getting a terible ratio on like to dislike and don’t adress it or accept the feedback and they know disabling the dislikes is a cowardly move. So instead they disable it for all the normal people so that the next Star Wars trailer won’t get ratiod and we will never know that they disabled it so it must be bad.

I'll be surprised if they bring the dislikes back because there's a little war going on in the Star Wars channel where all content that is related to Kathleen Kennedy was getting bombed with dislikes, so the dislike ratio is high, whereas any Favreau / Filoni related content has a high like ratio. Since KK can't listen to the fans and create content they want, she most likely influence the youtube underlings to remove it. Same thing with all Marvel / Comic movies that are "woke". Too much money is at stake so they need to remove the dislikes.
