not to sound like a preachy old man but youtube truly isn't what it used to be. i think a lot more people see it as a competition of who can get the most subs, the most views, and the most money. i remember years ago when it was all just collab channels and webcam videos of people documenting their lives and talking back and forth. these days it seems like most people are just out for themselves, doing whatever they can to further their own channel. i obviously still love aspects of youtube or i wouldn't be posting myself, but it's definitely less of a "community" than it once was.
