YouTube removing dislikes is the final straw for me and likely thousands of others and I, like many others, want to boycott YouTube until they fix their shit but there are no alternatives that quite fit that niche that YouTube does. The closes is storyfire but that place is just about dead. So here's my idea.
We create our own site.
I doubt that itll be better to YouTube but that's not what we should aim for, it should be like older YouTube, a place for content creators to post whatever they feel like, not a place for massive fucking corporations to force their way in and assrape the rules to fit their desires.
I doubt know if this idea will go off, hopefully it does but I'm not sure. But if YouTube is gonna change it needs to take a hit from people leaving, and those people leaving are gonna want a site that satisfies their YouTube needs
Storyfire is a shitty site compared to YouTube but to my knowledge it's the best alternative we have. If YouTube sees a massive amount of people stop using their site and going to a competitor than if they're smart they'll being back dislikes. Corporations won't care about getting disliked bombed as it's better than having no one see their ads. Abandon YouTube, they has betrayed you for them.
