YouTube as measure of success[edit]

I edited this comment:- "The songs reception itself became one of Minogue's least successful singles to date, only scoring just over 20,000 views on Youtube."

This has a number of problems:-

  • The use of the word "reception" implies critical response around the time of release, when most people hadn't even heard of the Internet, and YouTube was well over a decade away!
  • Using one upload as an example- official or not- doesn't account for all the other uploads
  • Doesn't take into account the time it was uploaded
  • The "20,000" figure will inevitably date
  • Synthesising the previous three points into a measure of popularity is bordering on backdoor OR anyway.

In short, it's been removed. Ubcule (talk) 21:11, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
