I want to get my old YouTube username back and completely abandon the nightmare that carries the name Google+. In order to do so, I need to delete my G+ channel, and in order to do that, I need to delete my YouTube channel.
I have a lot of playlists and favorites on my YouTube and I don't want to lose them. If I read correctly, with deleting your new YouTube channel you will also delete all information from the site, that you have posted since the creation of the channel.
According to the YouTube channel delete confirmation page it will delete 0 videos, 1 abbo, and 23 reactions from my account.
However, it does not list if it will delete any playlists or favorites from my account.
Does anyone know for sure, if you delete your YouTube channel, will the playlists that existed before creating that channel also be removed?
