I have three things that would greatly improve You Tube.

I come across so many fake, duplicated and disgusting videos on You Tube.
You Tube could do three things to clean this up.
1. Display the green/red like/dislike bar on the thumbnails of the videos on the right side. Make this not an option for people to rate your video. Too many bad or fake videos hide behind having no green/red like/dislike bar
2. Make it so you can filter results based upon dislikes and not have these below standard quality videos available for you to view.
3. Make offenders that post fake, duplicated or disgusting videos assigned to review other videos of like kind before they are allowed onto You Tube again.
If You Tube does this, it will improve the service.
Would you not know what rating the video is before you clicked on it?
Would having the rating under the video change your mind on whether you want to give views and thus attention to people who do not deserve it? The ratings are ACTUAL ratings I captured from the video once I HAD to click on the worthless piece of bandwidth. I believe that once a video has reached a threshold, say a million views and it's dislike quotient is below 95% it is automatically removed.
What about the cool and interesting videos? Would you not want to know if a LOT of people thought it was good?
I would rather have my search results on You Tube look like this. Full of highly rated videos with no fakes, frauds, stupid videos or plainly inappropriate videos. Seriously, wouldn't you want YOUR search results to come up like this?

Conversely with bad videos being removed or having their submitters punished in some way, I think videos that get enormous views (over a million) and hold a like percentage of over 90% should win awards and be on special lists for us to enjoy. Instead, as it is in You Tube, the gems of entertainment and uniqueness are mixed in with manure.

Thank you for reading. :)
