    I think that you're right on the money about making it optional. If nobody wants to keep it is probably a strong suggestion that we don't like it

    USclip will fail because no one actually understands it's algorithm, that's why they have all these problems they can't actually fix, they need to stop calling the problems tests or new features, half of their tests' are errors they hide and the 'new features' are because the old ones are broken and they need to add new ones asap, they didn't make the subscribe button not work the same for the bell icon, it was a mistake they won't admit

    you make lot of money thanks to USclip and complain about the platform that basically guarantees you a probably very good sallery for a few minutes of talking and editing?! That's wrong! You agreed to that, maybe by just by using the platform or a contract, so you are opt-in. If you don't like it, go elsewhere. And if you just gain views by making a catchy images, or even have to pay because you cant make a catchy image yourself, then you should not be a "creator". Simple as that. You are a tech page, but don't like change

    We are running a small experiment where 0.3% of viewers will see a Jake Paul video, instead of your video.
    We are not removing the ability to create your videos, but we hope to gain insights on auto-generated videos for the future.

    I completely agree. As a new content creator, I am really diving into my channel analytics and I want to try to control my tests as much as possible. If USclip is changing my custom thumbnail, then how am I as the creator to know if the new thumbnail I posted is really the reason for the views/watch time? I hope that USclip listens to your open letter and takes action.

    USclip released two separate documentations about this. If you cared so much about your thumbnails and you "do this for a living" you would read and look for everything about USclip don't make it like they're guilty and didn't say anything. They did. You just didn't look for it.

    When USclip started out it was a totally impartial platform. Look at how far alphabet/Google has let USclip stray, it would be best for Google to clean out house at USclip and throw out the leadership team and start over with fresh ideas and direction. With the way things are going USclip is a sitting target for a new platform to swoop in.

    If it is 0.03% of the users for an A/B test nobody should be informed. Big sites run 100s of tests every day. And now someone with a lot of followers noticed it once. You have no idea what your proposal technically means. I think the current way is already very good.
    Opting out would mean the test results will be skewed. Same as for opting in. So you don't want that as a platform.

    I paid for the premium USclip I don't think there should be any censored material unless I do not want it. That's half the problem with these guys they force you to do shit and you can tell their half-ass Democrats. There is no options no choices it's their way or the highway this USclip especially the premium version could be a hell of a lot better if they gave us choices. I'm a pest control technician so I watch some of the mouse traps making and the 18th of them and the guy that I watch has been beat to death by USclip because of the censored material. Bottom line the people that pay for the premium USclip should have the options not to be forced to watch the censored material only I should have the option to check a box if I do not want to watch a rat died. And thank you for bringing this to everyone's attention because USclip has been screwing with a lot of the people that make videos and I'm not one of them but I am of you were and I think it's really shity what they have been doing almost enough to opt out of their premium USclip version. The only big difference is I have to watch a few commercials in between cuts of the video

    Marques, I'm sure you know this, but while the people at USclip care about you, USclip the business couldn't give much of a fuck about you and their other creators. Most drones come to USclip to watch the mainstream, mindless content from big corporations, and most of the great original content on USclip is a minority of the revenue being generated. However, this was not just a great video and analysis of the problem, but a good insight into how organised and educated your thinking is - kudos.
