    sortbydislikes.com is a project I've been working on for a few days. It allows you to input a youtube channel and displays that channel's most disliked videos (in terms of percentage of dislikes, it also shows you the videos with likes disabled), I thought this would be an interesting exercise as many popular youtubers have a certain viewpoint which isn't very popular.

    Once you search a youtuber, if their channel isn't already in the database it will be added (this takes a few minutes, maybe longer depending on how many channels are in the queue). At the moment only videos with 30% or more of dislikes are added to the database.

    It would be really useful to get some feedback on this and any improvements that could be made. Thanks!

    EDIT: looks like I'm going to have to multithread the hell out of this, so many channel index requests already.

    This will be amazing when everything's indexed and doesn't return "nothing controversial here".

    Yea, once most of the main channels get indexed it will make the experience smoother. The "nothing controversial here" thing comes up when a channel has no videos which have more than 30% dislikes.

    If you click the video title it will redirect you to the video, though I should probably make the styling a bit more obvious.

    I've added that in, just for good measure.

    Nice interface, but I dislike the generic/old font

    Try something a bit more modern/contemporary?

    V interesting, obviously not all in there as some has now been added.

    Would be useful to not just see when 30% over dislikes though - like PewDiePie has none come up, presume as none that disliked, but would be curious to see most disliked anyway..

    Perhaps an overall 'most disliked' youtubers when more is indexed?

    Fair point, I only considered the font for the title. I'll do some experimenting.

    Yea I think a most-disliked youtubers section or a list of the most disliked videos would be pretty cool. The only problem with the 30% thing is that if its reduced too much then I'll end up indexing tons of videos very quickly, but its something I can play around with.

    I can't think of a better test case, the guy is notorious! It would also be cool if we could choose to whether to display the results in ascending/descending order

    What do you mean by display results in asc/desc order, surely the whole point is that they're shown in percentage likes descending?

    Pretty nice - very functional.

    I think it'd really benefit from a flat design in the future - just suits the feature. But definitely something for when it's 100% finished.

    Thanks, design is definitely something to work on. On a side note someone posted this on reddit and its going crazy, thousands of pageviews. https://redd.it/41phyb If anyone is interested.
