Upgraded one of my YT accounts to Google+, find out theres no more inbox button

Do I have to keep putting "inbox" at the end of youtube.com/ in order to read my messages now?

Your first problem is you have Google+.

Do you think they are eventually going to force everyone to use google+ in the future?^ Or do you feel it'll always remain optional?

Because for my other YT accounts, they keep spamming me about upgrading or using my "real" name.,

I hope not, Google+ is a fail by Google, the only possible way it will work its if Facebook dies in the next few weeks, but of course that won't happen.

If you go to the video manager page it is on the left hand side

They are certainly going to try.

If it utterly fails they might back off but otherwise they will keep pushing it.

Actually I switched to the google+ thing and hated it, and after a while they gave me an option to make a separate youtube channel from my linked account... so I did that... and I hated that too (because it basically started me over in a lot of ways). So THEN I noticed an option to revert back to my original account (without the google plus) and I did that... and now google is back to pestering me to switch to the google plus bull s***.

I've pretty much realized that commenting on youtube videos is pointless anyway (nobody reads them) and that's the only time Youtube bothers to pester me, right before I leave a comment.

I'm strongly considering migrating my e-mail over to a different provider. Google's really pissing me off with how much they're pushing me to give them more data mining opportunities. I've already switched to the far superior duckduckgo.com for my web searching needs.

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

Why Google decided to make you go to the Video Manager to find the inbox is strange.

Also, everytime I got a new message or comment, it used to be that a number would appear next to your username on the YT mainpage when you were signed in. But now that's gone too. So everytime you have to do this non-intuitive step of going to Vid Manager just to check if you got messages....
