Pre-Goolag YouTube Fellow Time Traveler 10/03/2020 (Sat) 17:51:14 No.848
YouTube was once also part of the old innocent, creative and fun internet when at worst people would make a video in the hopes of it getting viral. But that slowly changed thanks to the Goolag purchase which kept ruining YouTube at small steps and turning it into Cable TV 2.0 and Spotify 2.0 : >forcing people to move to Goolag account to keep their channels and their videos >complying with copyrightniggers as part of the mutual ass-kissing with the government >giving monetary incentives to "content creators" , aka self-important e-celeb faggots, which drawn greedy normalfag scum and later on were removed which in turn force these greedy normalfags to beg for Patreon gibs and get sponsorships to advertise even more shit on youtube >adding ads in the middle of the fucking video as if it was cable tv >letting big cable tv channels having accounts on youtube >removing full albums and songs from non-corporate music channels and reupload them as separate songs by a fucking bots >increasing censorship and removing comments and videos >disorganizing the comments section into a complete messy shitshow >usless redesigning of the site over and over again >changing the 5 star video valuation system to extra faggy like and dislike Let's reminisce of YouTube better days, whether it was a specific channel or video and so on...
>>1276 Oops. I wanted to filter out the modern "chan lingo", but I guess its better to just add a new rule for that (I believe thats how it was back on /y2k/ too)
>>1291 Funny thing is that this is almost exactly how /y2k/ was, right down to the way they initially had a bunch of filters until they started interfering with people's posts.

>>1290 >All the lame zoomer/late millennial may-may lingo that saturates everything nowadays can be almost unbearable. That's not very pogchamp of you, bruh.
>>1290 Rap slang has been popular with wiggers since the 80s, and you can go back even further if you include jive talk; one of the only complaints that can't be thrown at it is that it's a new phenomenon. To name some examples that were everywhere in the 90s and 2000s (not least on 4chan), consider: "nigga", "playa", "gangsta", "bitches", "hoes", "pimp", "balla", "booty", "mofo", "muthafucka", "crib", "fool", "homie", "da", "yo", "fo shizzle", "bitch ass __", and "shorty". The above were all heavily featured in most rap records at a time when rap was significantly more mainstream than it is today, and they were widely repeated across all areas of popular culture. "B*sed" on the other hand was the definition of "forced meme"; there was only ever one rapper using it, that rapper was hardly known to anyone outside of a small cult following, and the small group of people (if not a single highly-autistic individual) initially pushing it on 4chan was very obviously trying to force it into catching on.
>>1298 >To name some examples that were everywhere in the 90s and 2000s (not least on 4chan), consider: "nigga", "playa", "gangsta", "bitches", "hoes", "pimp", "balla", "booty", "mofo", "muthafucka", "crib", "fool", "homie", "da", "yo", "fo shizzle", "bitch ass __", and "shorty". Those all sound stupid too, but at least it was obvious that the people using them were joking if they weren't complete wiggers.
>>1299 What rubbish. Criticizes 4cuck maymays while unironically spouting off one of the worst of them. Practically gay hapa shit right there, little friend. You have to go back.

>>1300 What the hell are you even talking about?
>>1299 >"shorty" What's wrong with that? it's a centennial nickname for short, stocky dudes, and serves as a direct translation for tons of like-minded nicknames all over the world.
>>1302 The problem is that's not the way it's used in rap culture. It's mostly used in reference to women.
>>1300 >he thinks "wiggers" is a cuckchan meme You have no right to call anyone else a newfag. >>1302 >short, stocky dudes The niggerism means "short, hot woman." It's usually pronounced "shawty."
>>1303 >>1304 Oooh i see, well that changes it significantly, locally we use it to refer to short people who hate being short or pretend they are not aka "Napoleonic" in nature.
>>1305 If only it meant what it should mean and used to mean.
>>1258 the facelift definitely helps me enjoy it more when I do have to use it. I also installed a userscript that lets me blacklist any channel or user and it helps a lot. And I recently installed a script that makes it so that if I click the youtube logo, it goes to my subscriptions page. It goes a long way to remove the cancer but not all the way, but it's pretty nice
>>1298 >Rap slang has been popular with wiggers since the 80s, Seems about right. >"shorty". I'm sorry, but what are you talking about? The only thing I can think of is the song "Mr. Shorty" by Marty Robbins... surely that isn't what you're talking about? In fact, don't even explain it to me--if it's one more negro/wigger word I do *not* know, that's fine by me. >>1300 I genuinely cannot understand what you're trying to say here. >>1294 Typing like a zoomer should just be banned here even if it's ironic, IMHO. Me? I've made an effort to cut out all negro talk from my vocabulary for what little has crept in. When I was younger I thought it was cool to say "nigga"... it really just makes you sound stupid. Of course, I still say "nigger" quite a lot, but even then I think I curse way too often.

>>1623 >>1623 >>1623 I recall watching a documentary that people in East Germany after its unification were amazed at the depth of information that was obtained from people without their consent. How would those people respond given the fact that the same level of information if not more is given freely.
>>1623 I still remember as a kid playing the WinXP games (Checkers, Hearts, etc) and being amazed I could play online with strangers and "chat" using the pre-selected messages. My mom was worried about 8-year-old me talking to strangers online until my dad and I assured her there was no way to communicate any personal information. Years later I'm now having to tell her not to give her real name, email, phone, etc to random websites unless absolutely necessary. She's genuinely clueless how she gets so much spam while the little spam I get is filtered 90-95% of the time. I cut down on this further by using a contact email that's only used for communicating with people. My former email I use now for "important" web signups like Amazon, Google, etc. It gets a little spam because Amazon gives your email to their sellers, but it's nothing unmanageable. I also have a 3rd email that's basically my spam email. I don't get notifications for it and rarely check it because almost everything it gets is spam, but it's great when websites I don't trust need an email and I can't use the typical temp email sites.
>>1624 Poor Gayhole. >>1627 How does someone go from knowing stuff like that to forgetting it? Does it just come from repeating whatever the surrounding culture tells you without actually thinking things through? Or is it just something to do with aging affecting the mind? I've wondered about this.
>>1134 if you have an android look up YouTube Vanced, it blocks all ads, has background playback, and lets you watch videos while signed in with a jewgle account but doesn't actually tell them what videos you're watching. my watch history has been frozen in time for months now.
>>1629 >Does it just come from repeating whatever the surrounding culture tells you without actually thinking things through? Yes, that's how the NPC mind works. That's why the Jewish media operates the way it does.
>>848 >But that slowly changed thanks to the Goolag purchase which kept ruining YouTube at small steps and turning it into Cable TV 2.0 and Spotify 2.0 : Nothing lasts forever OP. Even the best things in life have to end eventually. Like the Holy Roman Empire for example.

>>1727 To put things into perspective, the Holy Roman Empire lasted 1000 years after it's inception from the coronation of Charlemagne (Whomst was a German man mind you). It lasted more than most empires stay on their feet. So just food for thought over your feelings OP. I hope this information helped you out>>1727 >>1727

>>1732 There's something spiritually damaging about the media used to condition NPCs. Vid related is a great example that I saved a few years ago because it mixes together everything that NPCs use to blast their brains into paste: sex, wealth, and the banality of everyday life, all exaggerated to obscene levels. I'm not too familiar with Baudrillard's writing, but I think this is similar to what he would call a simulacra - something that means nothing except its literal value. No artistic merit, no deeper allegory, no beauty, no inspiration to better oneself. Every single shot is a jagged jump cut that assault's the viewer. All noise, all the time. Stuff like this is force-fed to hundreds of millions of people every day by YT algorithms, and they simply don't have the IQ to recognize it for what it is and defend themselves against it by not watching it. They see a thumbnail with some guy making a fear grimace and giant block text and they just click on it because they might as well be animals. Same principle as a supernormal stimulus, which is a term you should learn if you haven't already. It's easy to hate them (I don't want to sound like a pompous snob either) but I think it's mostly a byproduct of the information age. In medieval times, people wouldn't be exposed to anything resembling this, and they would get their cultural and spiritual foundations from their churches and families. As religion and deeper spiritual meanings are ripped out of public life and people are allowed to choose their own ways, materialism wins out because it's literally right in front of people and requires nothing but the basic faculty of vision or hearing.

As religion and deeper spiritual meanings are ripped out of public life and people are allowed to choose their own ways, materialism wins out because it's literally right in front of people and requires nothing but the basic faculty of vision or hearing In a sense it's really not their fault. I'm no radical traditionalist or fascist, but I think that Julius Evola and Adolf Hitler were right when they commented on the feminine nature of the masses. "Feminine" not in the sense of being effeminate, but in the sense of being passive and formless without higher direction. And the higher direction they submit to nowadays has no interest in doing anything other than filling their heads with garbage. Those at the top of the social pecking order have, as a general rule, always wanted to keep people stupid and powerless; in the past, though, they were much more limited in how they could go about doing it. But due to the huge leaps forward that science and technology have been making, there are fewer and fewer obstacles to prevent them from doing so. I don't see any viable solutions either. If power comes from the top down, then that invalidates the bottom-up conception of power that modern democracy is based on. Something like Urbit could help fix a lot of the problems of the current Internet if the claims of its adherents hold up to scrutiny, but wide-ranging social reform isn't going to happen without having backing from some faction of renegade "elites" or another.
>>1138 lol no it's just an edit, the original dialogue was from the game Deus Ex >>1140 In reality, Mega Man Battle Network is a silly game about battling robots and solving problems on the interwebs, although it predicted the whole IoT "EVERYTHING HAS A SMART COMPUTER INSIDE OF IT" shit

IT JUST KEEP GETTING WORSE https://archive.is/9MC88 >>Starting July 23, 2021, older Unlisted videos will be made Private unless you opt out from this change. This is part of a security update to Unlisted videos that were uploaded before January 1, 2017. Unlisted content uploaded on or after January 1, 2017 is unaffected by this change. In other words, almost all the youtube videos that are worth watching will be practically deleted. Hopefully, the folks at invidious will be able to overcome and/or at least it will increase the competition for youtube alternatives as goolag clearly wants to kill it for good.

>>1806 Fug. But I dunno, invidious seems like it's on its last legs and will probably follow hooktube soon. As for jewtube alternatives, Dailymotion is surprisingly still around and has a lot of content long deleted from jewtube. Same with Vimeo. Though who knows for how long they will survive in the CY∞ climate.
>>1806 Mind posting the original link Anon? I can't access this archive.today link hidden behind the (((compromised))) Great Cuckflare Wall. If you'll post the original, then at least I can look it up on Wayback. TIA.
>>1812 I see. So, looks like it's already happened today huh?
>>1815 Naturally. You think jewgle will ever give you heads up in advance to prepare?

>>1806 What absolute faggots.
vidlii seems pretty cute, but I'm trying to figure out a way to downsize videos myself before uploading them so that the end result isn't as awful, but so far no luck. I try downscaling them to 360p and using low bitrate but once uploaded they look and sound even worse.

>>1122 >hit up NSFWYoutube >error: this video is age-restricted and only available on YouTube
>>1122 Can't you use an invidio instance? Otherwise just post a fake id, they're not the fucking government (even though the gov is behind them)
>>1849 I just noticed that. That really sucks
>>1849 It's been like that for a while now. It really chaps my hide.
>>1807 >invidious seems like it's on its last legs and will probably follow hooktube soon What? Why? Surely not just because the lead developer opted out. I've been using invidious as my default YT interface for a couple years now, and it's about the same as it ever was.
>>873 >bo burnham I'm glad that it's not just me noticing that things have actually gotten darker.
Looks like they removed the option to sort videos by oldest, newest and most popular on the app. I just don't understand why they keep removing simple features like this.
>>1972 the collective will decide your playlist, brother DO NOT TOUCH THAT DIAL DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT (oops. too long a sentence) DO NOT EVEN THINK
>>1972 Youtube prioritizes corporate channels, so their videos will fill any video feeds. Sort by newest was useful for finding smaller channels.
>>1972 >>2001 invidious still lets you narrow results by day, week and month.
>>2003 Invidious works for people not using app based devices. People using computers can easily bypass the dumbed-down app interface, but normies live in the app ecosystem. Many of them are completely unaware that their viewing options are being boxed in.
