I've got a personalised channel URL but have less than 50 subs - so I don't have many subs at all so not sure how that happened. Also its not the channel URL I wanted .
My channel name is LandyVlad Rides- I got the url of my original channel title... /user/LandRoverGunman
which is kind of annoying.

My other channel - simply called 'LandyVlad' (1 subscriber LOL) has the usual alphanumeric nonsense.
/channel/UCzynpslYxDAcwlye_YLO7Cg

I have a third channel (never intended it, somehow just happened back in the distant past when I first joined YouTube) called landyvlad (no upper case characters) which has a massive 7 subscribers, and only a few videos and has a channel url /user/landyvlad/

So as far as LandyVlad/landyvlad is concerned I have a channel with the correct channel title, but wrong URL, and one with the right url but incorrect channel title.....

Anyone have any idea how I go about solving this.....

My original channel was " Northern Moto Cruiser" , but I thought it to be a bit mundane so I started think of things and for some reason " up shit creek" wouldn't get out of my head so I ended up changing it to " Up Shift Freak" . Now I have a logo in mind I just need a designer to put it to paper.
I also have a second channel for things other than motovlogging called " The Gist of Bliss"

I guess you could just change the name of the old one and use that instead. Tell all your subs to move to the other one and you could re-upload all your vids onto that channel and close this one down.

So would the best option for me be to download the videos from
'LandyVlad' /channel/UCzynpslYxDAcwlye_YLO7Cg and upload them to
'landyvlad' url /user/landyvlad/

and then delete LandyVlad channel and rename landyvlad to LandyVlad (I want the channel name in capitals like that)


Lastly is /channel/ ... different somehow to /user/ ...
Or is it just that the format has changed over time?

If you want the unique name, yes.... Just don't delete anything until you have the new one set up and have reached out to your subs!
I have 3 channels on YouTube, but I am one user. So I have my Google account linked, which is my user account, I can then log into any of my channels and post videos as that channel.

I changed my name from Rider Skills early on. Needed something with a ring to it and more unique. Moto Torque or Torquing Moto I think is pretty clever, certainly marketable and you could definitely create a cool logo to match it. I'd personally go with Moto Torque (less syllables). Most channels change and evolve in time but getting a decent name early is important I reckon. As already mentioned, be content with the name before you get to a 100 subs and get your unique URL ... it's good that it matches and then get it matching on here too.

Torquing Moto is the go as the other one is already in use.

or if you just are intersted in Bikes and not cars maybe
Torquing Bikes

Yeah, I thought as much. To be honest unless they have over 1k followers I don't feel like I'm stealing someone else's name really. I thought of it myself, it just so happens another one of the 8billion people in the world had the same idea... I do prefer Torquing Moto so that's all gravy anyway!

I think its best to have something very different and discernible from others otherwise people that might come to you will find someone else instead...
Yea fair point! Luckily there's not another Sweet Triple or Torquing Moto..... Just have to get round to creating another logo and changing all my Youtube stuff when I can be bothered..
