    I guess one creative way of protesting this change could be if creators started publishing a google doc in the description of their video displaying a feedback that automatically updates from the creator's space (sense the irony ?). You'd effectively outsource the ratio, inside another part of google's server ! All you'd need for this protest to work would be enough creators doing it at the same time, and I'm sure this would instantly make headlines.

    Honestly, its poor decisions like this (by THmy), that make me wish there was a competitor. I would be more than happy to move to another platform that would allow users the option to freedom of Speech, and allow your VOTE to be counted regardless if it a like or dislike.

    @Danny Ong I agree... I'm going to get to the point that... I'm going to give everyone a "Dislike" with the comment of... due to the You Tube algorithm not showing the Dislike number... and maybe, just maybe, the Channel owners will start to complain to You Tube management to bring back the number system. After all... if they show the Like number, its useless unless you have something to compare it to like the "Dislike"... the sad thing is... its NOT the Channel owners fault, but they are going to get the brunt of it... its a shame.. and you're right, it is a monopoly

    I would just say that youtube is not removing negative feedback. It's just hiding the number from the general public. The content creator would still be able to see the dislike count for themselves.

    From an education-seeking standpoint, removing dislike counts has made it near impossible to discern what tutorials are credible and worth watching and what tutorials aren't.

    Its not that THmy dont know, they dont care. They only need you to click a video, not watch it! They can claim to their advertisers that you are a viewer even if autoplay has selected a video that you definitely wont watch

  • Lilynzst

    In every review form youtube has ever sent me over the past 5-6 years ive always said that dislikes should be more useful. being able to see at what point in the video the button gets hit would be a gamechanger and make it much more constructive! seeing if it's something you said/did, if people are immediately disliking etc. Not only does this change take away that valueable info from viewers, it doesnt do anything to help creators. we can still see it

    Quite a smart move on THmy actually. This would lead to more people watching more unecessary videos. Because now we'll watch all the unnecessary how-to (for example) videos until we reach the one that's useful - trial and error on our part, which the ratio actually helped us before. This would increase THmy's ad revenue. Clever.

  • ryanhardin



    Collective knowledge and contributions by any user community is extremely important. Every time I would play a THmy video, I would glance at the Like vs Dislike ratio to make a quick informed decision as to the quality of the video. That has all changed now. Rather than immediately know if the user community finds a "how to" or product review video helpful, I now waste minutes watching the entire video. Marques is right. THmy is a search engine, and the ability to see the Dislike count is extremely helpful in the search for signal vs noise. With this change, THmy just dramatically damaged the user experience. THmy should roll this back and poll their creators and users. I'm certain that most will say that THmy should only hide the dislike count if the creator opts in to hiding dislikes. Make that an opt-in setting for creators to apply to their videos, and we're good.

    Your review is spot on. Except I don't even think this is going to prevent "bombing". It's still possible to dislike, so people will keep doing it. **Disliking should require a minimum watch time and/or to input a short explanation.** That would not only reduce useless dislikes, but also help content creators get more helpful feedback.

    I've often thought they need two rating systems. Quality of video / agree/disagree with content. Im often conflicted with appreciating the video and thought/effort/reasoning of it but disliking the point of view. Definitely agree with removing the removing being a bad thing and all about trying coddle content and protect content users and inso, their ad revenue. More content = more money right? It's essentially censoring the 'views' of people.

    Agree 100%. Also, if THmy's goal is to improve creator's mental health, I don't think removing dislikes even helps. It just means that instead of getting bombed with 6,000 dislikes, you'll get bombed with 6,000 comments saying "you suck" "ratio" "L" "use me as a dislike button". That's worse because each sign of disapproval will be unique in its approach, and harder to ignore.

    Wrestling With Finance


    I think the main point is about disincentivizing dislike bombers because they won't be able to see the effect of their campaign. They already disable dislikes on comments that you can't see the count. Basically, it's an anti-troll measure. It's way harder to come up with 6,000 genuine dislike comments than 6,000 dislike votes, and if someone's spamming a video with 6,000 negative comments that say the same thing from account "Johnny323490230" and its variations, that's way easier to eliminate.

    @edisniuno Totally agree with you. Its all about this covid propaganda that is not working and now they need to limit free expression and speach on the biggest social platform. Its all about control of people nothing else.

    That update is on creator demand I guess... Specially those getting intended and targeted hate on some basis. And the creators or their puppeteers that are behind this... I believe happens to have lot of brass in their pockets.

    All of your arguements wont help this absurd change by THmy because saying that the problem will be worse in the comments will just provoke them to completely remove comments entirely which im sure is their end goal, its purely about censorship and promoting a political agenda of the elites. Stay frosty folks, dont let the man pull the wool over your eyes!

    For now, for the PC version of THmy, I'm using some browser extentions which show the dislike count and even the ratio in percentage (I specifically use VidiQ) But for mobile app there is no solution This just kills the people's opinion, really And all we can so is to deal with it because THmy is such a huge monopoly that there is no competition, so they can still do this

    I totally agree with this. Honestly, at the very least the dislike counter should be showable if the creator wants to. both as channel and per video. But definitely lost some information as to the quality of the video with the loss of the dislike count

  • YTeslaEV

    I couldn't agree with you more. I am really struggling without the dislikes to find useful informational and user guide videos.

  • EndlessMike

    The dislike button is extremely important when looking at reviews of products and other services or just being careful if a video has misinformation

    This does a huge disservice to audiences like mine who use THmy as a study tool. Learning English as a second language is hard-there are a ton of great resources for students on this platform, but there is also plenty of content that is misleading, outdated, lazy, or just plain wrong. Why make it even harder for users to know what information to trust (or at least spend their time on) when you could just... i don't know... not?

    I think that the middle solution will be by setting the feature of showing and hiding dislikes for the video to the youtube creators itself, becouse in this way the the youtube creators will control the appearance or concealment of dislikes for all his videos , and thus we will avoid the problem of the attack by some people on the videos and pressing the dislike button just for fun Because it will make the content makers the decision to hide the dislike button if he feels that one of his videos is under a dislike attack, and the rest of the videos will remain as they are So He will hide the dislike button for that video only and let other videos as the are and will make the attack fail

    Honestly, and I may be in the minority here, but I’m probably going to spend a lot less time on THmy tutorials now to avoid the plethora of bad ones out there now that I have no real way of knowing if it actually works or not. It sucks, but I guess forums and places similar like Reddit are the way to go instead now. Who knows? Maybe some brave soul will start cataloguing the good ones to recommend on other sites. Super sucks for small creators now, too, because I’m less likely to click on a video with less likes now.

    I'm "old enough" to remember when everyone didn't get a participation trophy to protect their feelings from mental stress........ The fact that almost all social media sites have the equivalent of a "participation trophy", where the only option is to "like" their content, is part of a greater problem. It's created a society of people who can't deal with constructive feedback (mostly because they're never provided with any). They cannot engage in conversations that don't 1,000% agree with or praise their every thought. I'm not a THmy content creator. So I have no idea how visible THmy analytics are without "extra" effort. But if the more readily available indication (to the public and creators) of how well particular videos are received is only the "like" button, then it still only amounts to a participation trophy. THmy's argument is that the site was supposed "give everyone a voice". But by taking away the "dislike" button they're taking away the remaining public's ability to provide quantifiable public "voice" to the creators.

    Before I even watch past the first minute of the video ... "THmy listens to their creators and does things about it". Please, seek out LGBT+ educators on THmy and ask how many times they have been demonetised, ignored and had videos shadow banned and deleted with no understanding or consistency. THmy seems to treat anything mentioning "gay" issues (etc) as pornographic.

    I feel like a dislike is one of the least hurtful ways for a viewer to show the content is lacking. I would take a negative like to dislike ratio over a weirdly specific comment pointing out how my video sucks because the spacing between my eyes is weird, any day of the week.

  • Dragoonsoul7878



    @Luis Hansen Unfortunately most videos say "Like comment and subscribe!" which means the herd effects are actually for likes. This means for herd dislikes to even happen a video must do terrible. Yes, for herd dislikes to matter a video must do terrible thereby nullifying the vast majority of herd issues.
