Just watched 2019 and rewatched 2018 in succession and am not a fan of either for different reasons. If I had to choose one I would probably go with 2018  :-\

I don't think I am the target audience through - whilst I know of some of the non-music related YouTubers in those videos I don't really watch any of them regularly (Maybe just Marques Brownless occasionally).

Honestly what was wrong with the 2018 one? Iím actually curious because
I see soo many YouTube comments about people complaining and I donít get why people are so bothered about something that imo has no real value or relevance to anything lol.

Like itís literally just a video..?
People hated the 2018 one because it omitted a lot of highlights throughout the year, as mentioned previously, KSI vs Logan Paul, the rise of Shane Dawson documentaries, T-Series vs Pewdiepie. And the reason why these events weren't included in 2018 Rewind is because these Youtubers aren's what traditional companies consider as "brand-safe". They're very controversial people and when Youtube is associated with extremely controversial people, they want to pull back ads, hence the ad-pocalypse. People hate this because not only are you completely ignoring the highlights but it's really showing that Youtube is no longer just a safe space for small creators but it's become more of a business and they only care about getting money by featuring more "brand-safe" creators (e.g. Casey Neistat, Lily Singh) and by satisfying the requirements of traditional companies (ironically, these companies don't even understand how social media works and have double standards in terms of where they want to show their ads). And also Youtube showing traditional celebrities such as Will Smith doesn't really help the situation because it kinda shows that Youtube cares more about traditional celebrities instead of smaller content creators.

Youtube may seem trivial to some people but it's become a lot more serious over the past few years with the ad-pocalypse, its crackdown on predator content and alienation of the gaming community, demonetisation issues  and double standards in advertising. Even the Pewdiepie vs T-Series event last year - it may be a meme but to many creators, the reason why everyone wanted Pewdiepie to remain on top is because once a massive corporation like T-Series takes over, then it's symbolic of Youtube being taken over by big media companies instead of that homey aesthetic Youtube once had.

Yes, I like Youtube drama lol.

As for the 2019 Rewind, it felt very safe in terms of editing and production. I guess it's better to be safe with the production rather than spending a lot of money on production and then those efforts get trashed. Then again, I liked it when they went full out on production because it was actually creative (I think they did a good job with the 2016 Rewind).

Poor effort from Youtube's team.

Yes the 2018 Youtube Rewind was cringe but at least some effort was put into it. I watched some reviews online and one person's review stuck out to me "the 2018 one was cringe but don't we all love some cringe every now and then?"

"The 2019 literally feels like a WatchMojo video but without the commentary" (this is what Youtuber Jackfilms had to say and I completely agree)

Have a look at the video again.

YouTube 2018 was very big in terms content - PewDiePie vs T-Series sub count and KSI vs Joe Weller/Logan Paul were both the biggest highlights of 2018, yet YouTube didn't mention these events at all, also keep in mind PewDiePie wasn't even included at all and he was the 2nd most subscribed YouTuber at that time (or first, im not sure).

Plus, a quarter of the video was political, which probably isn't beneficial as there are many people online who like to argue over trivial matter.

Wasn't extremely terrible, but was a lazy effort from the YouTube team. It was incredibly amateur.

A bit disappointing because if I recall, the CEO of YouTube even said that they will make an even better Rewind in 2019, yet all we received was a high school media assignment.

in fact it's tradition to do about 50 rounds of introductions as people show up.
And getting a person to try and go through and remember the names at least once ;)
Itís also tradition to bring Clix (not Jatz). And someone almost always forgets to bring speakers.

Hi,

I just heard about this program, can I still apply for next year even if I'm in year 11 (I'm doing Bio 3/4 next year)

Depends on the prerequisites and requirements of the subject youíre hoping to take and whether itís feasible for you to take it (e.g. to travel to the centre itís being taught at, having enough timetable space, having enough time to study for it). I know a few that specifically state ďyou must have completed VCE [insert subject] before taking this courseĒ and others let you take them either without doing the corresponding subject or simultaneously with the U3/4. That being said, itís usually most common to see it done when youíre in Year 12 (but not always).
