Why can't I see my comments under the videos on YouTube anymore? I have to press - View all comments to see them. jerrygreg 3/25/10 3:24 AM
Before now I was able to have interesting rolling discussions on topical news videos. I don't think I can do this anymore. Maybe I'm wrong but I can't see how I can. What's the point in spending time on YouTube now? This is crap.

jerrygreg, This is happening to MANY people, including me. About 10 days ago it started happening to me. The comments I leave on videos usually take hours to appear. Sometimes they don't show up until the next day. Often, right after I post a comment, I'll see it if I click "see all comments". If it appears under the video, it takes until the next day for that to happen. WHY? Of course sometimes my comment NEVER appears at all anywhere. This makes it impossible to have real time discussions, debates, arguments with others regarding a videos content or the issue associated with it. That totally SUCKS! More than a few people I know have given up and just quit commenting on videos because of this problem. Apparently, YouTube does not give a shit. They just don't care. They have NO customer service or support, There is no "YouTube Team". They won't even acknowledge that we customers even exist. I urge everyone to contact YouTube and COMPLAIN,COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN!!! As they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. The last time I left a comment like this, it mysteriously disappeared. I didn't remove it, so I'm guessing YouTube did. That's CENSORSHIP of course.

I have found if I disable safety mode, it shows the comments again. Try that. :) But then again, every time I disable safety mode it pops back on. Ugh... I have to keep pressing 'Disable Safety Mode' on each video.

Hey guys I think I just worked out why this happens. A couple of days ago my comments just disappeared - for me, it was because I turned on "safety mode". At the bottom of the screen there is an option to turn safety mode on or off.

As soon as I turned "safety mode" OFF, my comments came back!

Hope that helps :)

No, turning off safety mode does not work. C'mon Youtube! You're losing viewers!

I'm also having this exact problem, turning off safety mode, doesn't help, because it's not even on.
The moment i posted a reply on someone's comment on one of my own video's, the comment system turned haywire, and now the only page i can see all of my comments is when i press ' see all '. 
This is really frustrating because now most of my video's have more hidden comments, than comments that actually show up with the video.

PLEASE YOUTUBE, FIX THIS UTTERLY FRUSTRATING PROBLEM.

Thanks

I have the same problem.  I NEVER enabled safety mode, so when Google says safety mode is opt-in only they are lying.  At the bottom of the page it says safety mode is off, but the comments still say "Safety mode has hidden comments for this video."  Turning safety mode off again (well, going  to the part that says safety mode is off and then saving the setting again) does not reveal the comments.  I still end up having to click "Show hidden comments" every time.
This reminds me too of how "safe search" keeps turning itself back on without my knowledge or consent.  I have to check to see if it has turned itself back on again, even though I am logged into Google and never turned that on either.  I don't want a bowlderized internet.  I don't want these safety features for children on my browser; I am not a child and have no children.
I am using Google's own browser, Chromium.
