[BC] Google Forces YouTube Account Linking - Page 2

post #11 of 56
Err...

This happened YEARS ago. It wasn't optional, you could no longer sign in with your youtube account. You HAD to use your google account.

Get over it people.
I kind of agree here.

Plus, if you really want separate accounts, you could simply make two Google+Youtube accounts and use only one of them for either purpose (Gmail or Youtube).

Needless hassle , why bother? The only problem people had with this was that it is MANDATORY now.

It was (for old accounts), because mine hasn't been linked for Years.

I've had a youtube account since they started, and they stopped giving me the option to log in with it years ago.

It's annoying as I have 2 google accounts, and the wrong one always seemed to be logged in.

No idea what else i'm supposed to be reading...

Well clearly it isn't the case for the majority of the people because I , as Trigunflame , had never been required to link those accounts together if we choose not to.

Well , as you can see , it is an inconvenience for many and even you.So why force it on all the accounts?

Most people I don't see bothering to do it, of course . . . but it's not a "needless hassle" if someone really does (for whatever reason) want separate accounts for Gmail and Youtube. That was my point. If it's a needless hassle to you, then don't do it.

Dang google is starting to change how they do things, and personally I don't like mixing accounts together because for me email is for business and youtube is for fun.

Its also the reason why many sites have BS like requiring you to sign in to facebook in order to view comments and stuff like that.Sorry , i'd rather cut off from the internet than to sign up for one.
Not that I wish google to become bigger and wield more power, but what else would you expect a business to do?

I think that was for creating new accounts--of course, if you had a YT account before google acquisition, you could still sign in with that. But you could no longer create a new account without a google account.

Anyhoo, what's the big frickin' deal here? It's not like you have to sign in with some credit-card identity verification that shows you are you. Make a random/"anonymous" gmail account for your youtube access and be done with it. Jesus...

I too thought this went into effect a while ago. I can't remember when it was that youtube told me to sign in with my google account. I can't say I'm really bothered by it as google owns youtube.
