Can YouTube Poop Be Critiqued

I think YTP can (and will) be critiqued, Just as everyday art is critiqued.

I do believe that there is a such thing as a "Good" or "Bad" YTP. Whether you like it or not is personal taste, and personal taste is formed by creating opinions through experiences and analysis of your        particular subject of interest. (i.e. YTP.)

If you have been watching YTP's for many years, then chances are that you would be somewhat more critical towards YTP's in general. Whereas a YTP newcomer wouldn't have as much to compare the particular video too. Thus, they would think higher of it. 

Same thing goes with actual content. Different people have different expectations, Thus they will critique it differently.

I do think YTP can be critiqued, but due to its random and limitless nature, it can be difficult to do so.

It's hard to decide whether a poop is bad or not. It usually narrows down to three questions:

1. Was it well edited?

2. Did it have variety?

3. Was it at least funny?

If the answer of the three is no, the YTP is mostly likely bad.

i definitely think that you can critique youtube poop. there are different styles for sure, and different ideas on how to interpret the loose "rules" of ytp - i legitimately think its an art form and i wish i could say that w/o sounding pretentious

if we can so easily point out the difference between, for example, my videos (lots of sentence mixing and stutter loops with little visual effects) to the aforementioned ABITW's, which are very heavy on visual effects, than we can easily critique youtube poop.

the problem is when people think you can only poop one way so they base their critique on what they want to see or the videos they like to make. the important thing to remember is, like any art form with this loose of a ruleset or visual aesthetic, to try and be objective and see why they chose to remix the video that way.

or maybe im full of shit, lol, who knows

There has to be criticism. Are you telling me if the majority of people found the video unenjoyable, is it not objectively bad? Not every movie is liked or dislike, and cinema could still be considered lacking structure.

For something as niched as YTP, majority of opinion is nonsense honestly. The thing is, even the most poorly edited video can find someone that likes it (maybe in a "so bad it's good way"), because since YTP has always had that sense of randomness and "i don't give a fuck about what's supposed to be pretty or in good taste" attitude, it works.

Other than that, yeah, i agree about the fact that there has to be some criticism, but let's not forget that nobody knows better than anybody else about YTP. There's no YTP specialists, YTP gods or elevated YTP critics. There's only a bunch of people that likes YTP and that have their opinion. Hearing their opinion is interesting, but when it becomes a trope or a "rule" ("Youtube Poops have to be funny" and the like), that's when things are getting nonsensical in my opinion.

Other than that, great article Bio, really insightful. Honored to have one of my videos featured in it.

A simple answer: It can sometimes can be critiqued. A complex answer, we'll see at the bottom of the page.

 

YouTube Poop can sometimes be critiqued. For example, I uploaded a 2-second poop, and 2 people complained that it was shit, although it was a collab entry to the cancelled 4th scrambled ear rape collab (It was cancelled because a person already hosted one).

Despite YTPs being funny to newcomers back in 2007, 2008, or 2009, they're just CD-i Poops such as Hotel Mario, The Legend of Zelda: Wand of Gamelon, The Legend of Link: The Faces of Evil, and possibly Zelda's Adventure. All other criticizing people has to say in the comments section "YTPs has to be funny" or "YTPs are stupid as fuck".

As usual, most people think that YouTube Poop is really good. They laughed at some parts like that Spongebob said Mario Head's quote "Okey dokey princess, it'sa your time to play!". But some criticizing people and my sister is not most people. They are YTP haters, and I don't like YTP haters (expect my sister). Numerously, they criticize certain YTPs whenever they know it or not.

So yeah, YouTube Poop can be critiqued, YouTube Poop can be enjoyable. Strict arguments (like SammyClassicSonicFan, there's a Stop Hating on Sonic video) on YouTube Poops doesn't help the criticizing people on liking YouTube Poop whatsoever. Other than that, you made such an inspiring answer, Bio. Seems really honoring for me to make a video on a question "can Windows Never Released be critiqued".

YTP is like artwork, in the sense of how it's perceived. 

Like many have said, it's subjective, people like what they like and it's always good to be constructive!
In a sense you can view them as you would view a movie, and like with movies, there are many timeless classics, modern greatness and sometimes guilty pleasures can come into it. 

It's complex in a sense in the kindof genre the poop is, so it's good to have an open mindset and knowing what you're walking into (for instance a tennis video or perhaps a certain YTP's own personal style). 

Everyone has their own style, which is one reason I think YTP has stayed the test of time because of the creativity of the community. And like with styles in art, directing or anything, it can be a case of "you like or you might not". 

They are worth critiquing in a fair manner. I usually have my own set of questions, though they change depending on the genre of the YTP!

Spadinner poops and other crappy poop styles like paint jobs and slideshow poops should be critiqued. Good styles however, shouldn't be critiqued.

Who determines what's good though? And why should some styles receive criticism over others?

Stylistic preferences are everything. I frankly don't care for most 'classic' and 'mindrape' styled YTPs. If they can tell some basic jokes and get me to laugh then every other edit that follows is just icing on the cake.
