- by PntBlnk, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5To collect truly useful data you'll need to add an option to the menu of each recommended video (where the "Not Interested" option is). 99% of the time I already know the recommendation is of zero interest and won't play the video just so I can register my regret.
I'll watch this with interest. Please save us all from the useless YouTube recommendation system, Mozilla devs!

One thing about this addon: It slows the Youtube Experience down a lot. Everything is laggy with this plugin installed. I currently have it disabled. When this gets fixed, I will enable it again.
- by Other Otter, 5 months agoRated 4 out of 5This is a great idea, but you shouldn't have to click on a video before reporting it. If I get recommended a regrettable video, I'm not generally going to click on it (or perhaps that's the point, but would I even know it to bre regrettable at that point?)
