Posted here as promised:
I thought I’d put this here, and may continue to do so, while YT is in meltdown, at least until I know what’s what. People aren’t getting videos in their subscriptions box, they’re not getting notified of replies to their comments, some people can’t do anything at all, the place is in chaos. Or at least it looks like it. To Google staff I’m sure it all makes perfect sense. So if anyone who watches me there sees this, if you can’t say anything there and want to, try here. It’s not ideal but it will do as an interim measure. I hope I can find a longer term solution, but I’m going to keep going there until the cost becomes too high. And when I do finally jump, I’ll make sure I leave directions here as to where I am.
