Check your channel, you will see that you are no longer even given the option to either have it visible or hidden.

Got onto the Google Discussion forum, and one of the users said Google don't discuss policies they have implemented, with users. He/She also said that if i wanted more of a say on the matter, that i would have to become a Google shareholder, LOL!

I know it might seems insignificant to many of you, but things like this, especially when Google don't even notify the users of such changes, really piss me off.

I totally agree. I haven't even seen it mentioned anywhere else but here. One thing I always checked for on peoples channels was their ages. Usually the ONLY reason I checked peoples channels. I don't understand why it would be removed completly when you had the option of showing it or not.

It really pisses me off too. It's the icing on the cake after switching to the new god awful layouts.

Ever since Google bought out Youtube its really gone downhill. Vimeo is looking more appealing every day.
