Just thought I'd let everyone (who has a YouTube account, of course) know, YouTube is ditching the private message feature come July 9. If anyone has received many private messages from other members of the forum, that's probably why.

Here's the email notification I got from YouTube on this matter (which was sent to me on June 4):

What are your thoughts on this? I'll give my thoughts on this sometime later as that I'm working on something at the moment.

Tbh the system was horrendously unreliable, I kept hitting send many times only for it to discard my message... Before sending it multiple times (don't say it's my connection. Because it done that randomly).

Also I'm kinda disgruntled that Google is trying to push further Youtube "Red", just like Vimeo pushing further their premium plan by... Heavily penalizing free users (Vimeo has always been garbage since they introduced their premium plan... It's all my opinion you're fully free to disagree with it, I respect yours)
