How long have you been a member of YouTube?

I've been a user since the middle of 2005. It almost feels nostalgic thinking back that long, but it's definitely a great website for sharing and watching videos. I sorta wish that the people running the site hadn't changed the layout and everything on it. I prefer the much simpler version that was available about a year ago. Do you guys post a lot of videos often, or are you more of a watcher who looks for random stuff that comes to mind?

I have been using YOU TUBE since last 4 years when i was in my post graduation days. It was a great time pass during college days.

I have been watching videos on it since 2005 but I did not make an account on it till 2006 I believe. I love youtube since it allows me to stream videos quickly and look for music I'm interested in and how practically most things I search for there are on it aside from the more mature content, though some immature users will wrongly tag their videos just to try and attempt to go viral lol. I find that annoying, but sometimes its actually pretty funny. I have uploaded a couple of anime music videos I created using some anime clips onto youtube, but sometimes they get taken down because some company doesn't allow their content to be uploaded there anymore. .It's not like people are making money off it, I dont see what the big deal is. But I like youtube overall

I just looked and apparently I joined on June 12, 2006. But I remember being a lurker there for months before joining. The only reason I signed up was because that was the only way I could watch some of the videos on there. I also miss the old version of the site, it made searching for videos so much easier. This new version is complicated and somewhat annoying. I've been telling myself to post videos there for years now but I still haven't gotten around to it so I'm more of a watcher on that site. I mostly watch music videos and drama series but a lot of them have been removed due to copyright issues or the uploaders being banned. It's a bummer too since there were some pretty good old school wuxia series on there.

I am actually not a member, I don't have a Youtube account, even if I use the site from time to time. Does that make me weird? Anyway, I use Youtube mostly for stuff that I happen to think of, I don't browse it randomly or anything. I always have a purpose when I visit the site!

I've been a member for a little over a year, but before I became a member I still used YouTube to watch videos a little bit... I use YouTube to sometimes post videos, but I am mainly just someone who watches videos.

I do agree on how great it is when it comes to the video sharing, simple to upload and not to complicated at all. I actually like the new layout over the old one. I thought they had an option to change it back if you didn't like the new version. I'm not to sure since id on't pay much attention to the whole settings thing on my account. But if you want to take a look i think you could find something. I think i've been a member since around 06' I never bothered to make an account before then because i only used YouTube to watch videos. But then i started to learn some more things and decided to make an account to upload some videos. I think I have 2 accounts on it now if i'm correct. But as of now i don't use it much since i'm not sure what to make a video about. xP

I just looked and it says 2006 :P Actually I have been using it for much longer than that but I made an 18 plus account because the site wouldn't let me watch some of the content... I found it randomly when I was surfing now I use it everyday so I definatly need the account now to comment harsh comments on newbie youtubers.
