Not on the forum, on a video. Ex:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/terraformars/episode-7-brave-warrior-661219?t=0
I asked about the soundtrack at 17:05, but how do I find out if someone quotes me there?

Only by going back and looking... There aren't any notifications on comments currently, although you're not the only one who has ever wondered why not.

You can only search for your old forum posts, too. There is no search mechanism for your old comments, either.

It seems that comments aren't really treated as a discussion; only the forums are.

Well there is a single forum thread for just about every simulcast... One of the mods, lorreen, keeps an index of those here:

Yeah, since the comments aren't a part of the page, they can't be indexed by google. Even for us mods it is hard to find comments. With the way comments are right now, it is even difficult to code your own comment notifications, but not impossible. I hope the feature will be added eventually, but the comment system would have to be remade.

If I made an app that finds quotes to my comments, how many r/s can I make?
I am going to assume you have anti-ddos protection, will that kick in if it goes over the r/s limit?
Oh yeah, one last thing, does this site have a public api which I can use?

I don't work for CR, I am just a mod. No there is no public api. As far as r/s goes, for a while I was pulling 4/s but that got someone banned so I changed it to 1/2s. The biggest problem is that there is no way to get a specific comment's data just by using the comment id. Instead, you have to get it indirectly by getting the comment's offset in a specific sort and then getting the comments at that offset. The API that the site uses follows this format

http://www.crunchyroll.com/comments?

int pg,                     // pg*pagelimit = comment offset (this is a bit off)
String talkboxid,	// id for comments i.e. 1001-MEDIAKEY_652883
String sort,		// Sort method, score_asc/desc date_asc/desc
int replycount,	// number of replies to include
int threadlimit,	// Honestly not sure if this does anything
int pagelimit		// Determines the number of comments per page

An example for getting all the root comments without getting any reply comments

http://www.crunchyroll.com/comments?pg=0&talkboxid=1001-MEDIAKEY_652883&sort=date_asc&replycount=0&threadlimit=1&pagelimit=2000

When I was working on this before, ^ that link loaded pretty fast, but it seems to be super slow if it loads at all atm. Just now it took 1.2 min to load, which is pretty long.
