I wish I knew of a better way to do it...
 
While you're at it, I'd love to see something done about usernames. It would be great to see more versatility and flexibility. Twitter allows users to change their username many times, and I think this would be a great feature for YouTube to incorporate. Currently, 500 subscribers or a linked domain is needed to obtain a "channel ID". This makes it very difficult for someone just starting out to gain popularity. Many people starting out won't get 500 subscribers fast or have money to pay for a domain name. A better idea would be allowing people to pick an actual username from the beginning (much like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) Next, many people no longer like a username they may have liked a few years ago, but have since rebranded/changed their channel's content, so allowing us to change them would be beneficial. Also, there are a lot of discrepancies in channel usernames these days, and honestly it is quite confusing. You have your legacy names (youtube.com/user/yourname), but you also have your newer "channel ID" names (youtube.com/c/yourname). This can cause a great deal of frustration and confusion when going to a channel. For example, if I type youtube.com/lockergnome into my browser, I will be redirected to youtube.com/user/GeekLifestyles. This is because "lockergnome" was set for the channel ID. However, if I type youtube.com/user/lockergnome, I will be redirected to Chris Pirillo's classic YouTube channel because "lockergnome" was the legacy username used when originally setting up the channel. Both channels are his, but due to channel IDs conflicting with legacy usernames, people are being brought to channels they didn't intend on going to. As if that wasn't enough, usually when the "c" in the address is omitted in the new channel IDs, you are still brought to the channel. (For example, my other account's address is youtube.com/c/NerdDuo, but when I type youtube.com/NerdDuo, I still get redirected to my channel, without having originally used "NerdDuo" as a legacy username.) When I type youtube.com/c/pirillovlogs, I am redirected to Chris Pirillo's daily vlog. However, if I just type youtube.com/pirillovlogs, I get an error message that the channel does not exist. This is a major discrepancy. If my channel redirects fine without using the "c", why doesn't his? I think the best idea would be to go back to square one. Wipe all of the usernames and channel IDs and allow everyone to pick a new username (of course giving people the option to keep their current username to avoid someone else taking an already liked address). If a channel hasn't reclaimed its username within a 30 day period, the username could then be returned for someone else's use. This was just my long winded advice on how to make the site more enjoyable, easier to understand, and a better platform for someone to start on.

Chris, it means a lot that you reshared this. I was hoping my message would get across since the whole username situation is very confusing lately. Hopefully someone at YouTube will read this and take some sort of action towards it. Right now it is just a disaster that needs to be addressed.
