I have a problem with trying to rename my YouTube channel and think the cause might be somehow connected to Google+, though I've yet t figure out how t fix it.

I set up my channel years ago. It is called Almost Savvy, same as my business and website. Back when I was using Google+ more actively, every time I would go to YouTube, I would get a notification asking if I wanted to change the name of my channel to Irene Koehler. I never changed it, though I never clicked 'no' either. I remember hearing horror stories about people who tried to change the name of their YouTube channel and ended up losing all of their content.

Fast forward to today and now I DO want to change it to my name. I've rebranded and moved everything to irenekoehler.com and want my channel to have the same name. I have been able to edit everything else in the channel (photos, URL, info), but cannot change the name.

Other related information:

Right now, there are two YouTube accounts tied to my google account and primary gmail address. One, Almost Savvy (I linked below to a random video from my channel), I intentionally set up. The other, Irene Koehler, was automatically set up by google and has no content.

When I tried to go into settings and change the channel name, there was a message about having to make a change on Google+, but I'm not sure where to do that and don't want to screw anything up.

It occurred to me that it might be possible that I cannot change the channel name to Irene Koehler because there is already an account by that name (also me), but that isn't it. I get the message that the name can't be changed without even being able to input what new name I'd like to use.

The videos on my channel are really old, but I do not want to lose them and just start over. There has got to be a way to fix this (she says in her most optimistic voice).

Advice? Help?

Thank you!!

Is this how the Panama Papers were leaked - through a vulnerability in Wordpress and Drupal?

"The gradual changes in the Twitter Rules reflect a story about Twitter, and shine light on the story that Twitter has tried to tell about itself. The latest changes in the Rules represent a significant rewriting of both the Rules and of the mythology that Twitter projects about itself.

Throughout the years, Twitter has billed itself as an anti-censorship platform, at one point even calling itself the “free speech wing of the free speech party.”

But changes in the Rules over time reflect the pragmatic reality of running a business. Twitter talked some big talk, but it has buckled under both lawsuits and media outrage, tweaking and changing the Rules around speech whenever something threatened its bottom line. For a business, free speech can only be a meaningful value if it doesn’t really cost anything."
Twitter's changing rules and what they say about its culture and mission.

Surely, we've got other pressing issues more worthy of all this attention.

The future is here. Interesting look at the shared and collaborative economy.

On the one hand, good for Facebook for finally taking steps to address the rampant #freebooting  problem. On the other hand, why has it taken so long?
