They're unsubbing users from random channels and apparently even terminating channels for seemingly no reason, one of which was the LP channel of a pair of animators I follow on Tumblr. And now there's a bell icon on channel pages you have to click on to force notifications to be sent for that channel.

I had my backup/shitpost channel terminated last week, without explanation.

However, I logged on today and it was back.
Waaa.

I'm fine with the bell being a separate step for subscriptions. afaik it's been that way for quite some time. I certainly don't want my phone pinging me for ever new video in my subscription feed

Is this the same for everyone else now too?
The notification system has been totally broken for me for nearly a year now. It used to notify me of comments on a video I uploaded as well as responses in comment chains I've participated in. It hasn't done either for a long time. I have to rely on email notifications of all things to know when people reply to me.
Strange; the bell symbol still notifies me of comments (most of the time). Maybe you could email the staff and ask about getting it fixed?

I don't really care enough to spend the time to be honest. I at least get email notifications so it's easy enough to keep up with things at least. Just means it's typically longer before I notice them is all.

The bell is now notifying me of new videos from people I'm subscribed to. It never did this before.

Yeah, it did that to me too, but only when I first logged in this morning.

Now, even page element blockers aren't working anymore to stop ads

I don't get ads still. Though I don't use things like AdBlock. I use Ghostery+uMatrix for blocking things.

Well my computer is old and tired and really doesn't like HTML5 for some reason. And YouTube seems to have removed the ability to use the flash player at will, so it looks like I'm stuck with 360p and no snake for the rest of my life.

Or is there still an opt-out which I've just missed or what is it
THIS. THIS AND A HALF.

I recently picked up a laptop from Amazon for $35 - an old 2007 IBM ThinkPad T43, for those who might be curious - and I am realizing very quickly how YouTube does not play nice with 32-bit processors and older hardware any more. I run Linux and have been able to get the hardware to play 720p/1080p videos playing from memory without too much hassle, but streaming it is ridiculous. I honestly feel as if more and more websites these days are trying to make 32-bit obsolete and it makes me kind of sad. Granted, 360p and 480p still work, and maybe I will get some more RAM for this machine to get around this, but it still is kind of upsetting because YouTube is one of the main things I use my laptop for in the first place.
Oh gosh, it's been so long since I've signed up to be on a forum.
This is the part where I can write some witty banter or something?
Um ... okay ... I have a YouTube channel somewhere and I stay up at 2AM browsing Tumblr.

What has happened with the Youtube app.

I am deeply confused.

How do I view my subscriptions.

EDIT: Oh wait, it's at the bottom and the same color as the background and smaller.

You had a good UI, at least it was good enough...
Something goes here sometime.

this is getting absolutely ridiculous.
apparently they're even restricting videos about asexuality.
yknow, the one that literally can't be "inappropriate" by its very nature.
maybe this issue might finally trigger a decent exodus from youtube?

Yeah no I'm having the same problem, but oddly enough, only with one of my channels. My main one is just fine, but for some reason, when I'm using my Lets Play channel, it kinda goes all screw-y and I can only see one of two channel's videos. It's really odd and might be another case of Youtube's algorithm messing it up for everyone again.

It's rather frustrating...
