Creators will still be able to see the number of dislikes on videos.

youtube as every modern plataform always "improving" with disasters, such a bunch of cowards
it has no sense to hide dislikes as anyone can still dislike a video

Simple way to show YT how you don't like that controversial decision: ***Dislike ALL videos*** Sure, it hurts disliking good content but what YT did there is more hurtful for us all.

Well, if YouTube really wants to keep small creators "safe," then wouldn't they have actually done something good instead of randomly demonetizing, striking, and even deleting the accounts of content creators just because the "AI-assisted" algorithm found it "offensive" (even if there's nothing wrong with their content) or just... NO reason at all?!
Moreover, I think they should have reconsidered removing the dislike count, considering that there's a HUGE ABUNDANCE OF VIDEOS THAT ARE EITHER CLICKBAIT, TUTORIALS THAT JUST DON'T WORK AT ALL, SKETCHY, OR OBVIOUSLY ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO MAKE BAD DECISIONS IN THEIR LIVES AND PUT THEMSELVES IN DANGER. The removal of the dislike count will probably result in more kids falling for the fake "5-minutes-craft-esque" videos and joining trends that can be extremely dangerous and deadly without knowing that their world might suddenly turn dark.
This will also make the clickbaiters, "free robux" scammers, people who upload shock value videos just for clout, creators that support anything that's immoral, and even video-making trolls, feel more CONFIDENT.
In conclusion, I don't think this kind of decision will help YouTube and its community. Instead, it can just potentially cause more problems. No wonder there is such thing as YouTube alternatives like PeerTube and BitChute...

And an ever changing agenda, every few months.

Oh wow speechless

Now people will start commenting "don't watch this video and waste time", giving others the opportunity same as dislike :v

Brandon was just some NASCAR racer and while he was talking to some reporter the crowd was shouting what I just said, and the reporter misheard it as "Let's go brandon", so now you see trumpers saying that every second. Idk why they don't just say what they want

A Blockchain-based decentralized video sharing platform is the solution and there is no way for Youtube and others to avoid that. The real freedom of speech is just starting...

"This is beyond disgusting. What's next? They'll automatically hide comments that some AI algorithm deemed negative?"

Where are you living? They have done it for years already. 🤣
