Guest Editors in the UK

We’ve finally gone and done it: Guest Editors are now live on the UK homepage. As a result, for the next week or so the fresh videos we feature will be chosen by two local users – HiggypopUK and SambaDisaWinner.

Following the announcement in this blog that applications were being accepted for the initiative, the editor-uk inbox glowed red-hot with your feature picks and supporting mails. We reviewed every application, watched every video and spent hours trying to whittle down the field. Eventually, it became clear that splitting the two front runners would be an impossible task, and we decided that the YouTube way to do things would be to give both a crack at the role.


What this means is that for five days the frontpage will be updated with HiggypopUK’s excellent film and comedy selections, after which SambaDisaWinner’s stunning music picks will kick in for a further five. Stay tuned – it’s going to be a blast.


All that remains for us to do is say a big thank-you to everyone who took the time to apply. There were some wonderful selections made, many of which will definitely turn up on the UK homepage in the weeks to come. In fact, here is a particularly worthy example to whet your appetites (selected by StylistBrighton):





Credit where credit’s due. Have fun,

Whos Jamie D?

to You-Tube,
I am writting this because the account muhammadsquran (and many others) has been suspended. The account was a factual and well researched criticism of Islam, and so its suspension is clearly an unjustifiable act of censorship protecting Islam from legitimate criticism. Please re-consider this decision and reinstate muhammadsquran. Thank you.
