If I comment on a newly released video, the comment would disappear after 1 day.
Does anyone know whats happening with the commenting system?

The comments seem ot have been acting weird lately. Some shows you're able to reply to other peoples comments, and some not. Yesterday the comments on most videos I watched took quite a while to even load. And other times newly posted comments are automatically thumbed up +1.

I has been glitchy lately.

Is the video actually out / watchable?
Or is this when it is a countdown timer?

We have 2 commenting systems. The new one (which allows nested replies) was acting up so it was disabled. The data between the 2 will be merged after the new comment system is stable.

I noticed today that there is a new change. Now we can arrange comments by rating or by how recent it was. They do take a while to load (at least right now), and I imagine that a side effect of the merging has left comments appearing twice on the page, and some have been lost in the merging (I know because my comments in the past couple days are gone), Comments still get an automatic +1, but replies don't.

I suggested the "top rated comments" idea, although I'm sure CR was already working or thought about it, but what I had in mind was closer to how YouTube does it (a few top comments on the top and they reset every few weeks), but this way is ok too, I only wish I could choose to arrange comments chronologically by default instead of by rating. And I do hope the loading time can improve in the future since I sometimes go into a video just to see if I got any replies to my comment, which by the way remind me that there was also a setting to not autoplay video when I go into the video page.

Oh whoops, the last part I meant that I wish I could have a setting to stop videos from autoplaying.

Thanks for the infro. I have to go away from the page then come back to see comments.

The "rating" and "recent" way of sorting the comments has been taken away. And although you may see a "Reply" link, it won't do anything.

There is a button to toggle on/off Autoplay. It's on the right side of the bottom bar. The @ looking Arrow.

By auto play, he meant when you load the episode page the video starts automatically.

Yes, I figured out how to do this manually. I use Chrome, so I only need to go to chrome://plugins/ and disable flash while I only check for comments. Problem solved.

Also, now a lot of videos are, once again, loading with the sorting options, with sort by Rating by default, and now they also load fairly quickly. Excellent work CR! Everything is going according to the dead sea scrolls.
