YT update. Can't see comments that got replyed?

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

So, I just noticed something in the new YT update, you can't see the comment that got replyed, the "show comment" button doesn't exist anymore. ![](http://i.imgur.com/mamMq57.png "") I can't see the comment. If I click the link, it refreshes the page. Why would YT remove such neat feature?

I was JUST starting to tolerate them forcing me into one to keep my channel, or whatever the reason was, now this? I respect google on a lot of their choices, but Google+ is going to be the end of them if they keep clinging on to it. It's never going to be as popular as facebook, never going to become more common than twitter, they HAVE to realise that, right?

    Yep, I can't view comments either and I do not have a Google+ account. I don't care if they're trying to make things better for their + users in some way, that's fair enough. Trying to force me to join into something I don't want to to have youtube fully functional is a load of ass. I posted this in the other thread but it's relevant here, and Sexual Lobster's feelings should be known to all.

    For those of you who complain about needing a Google+ account to view comments; As long as you have a Google account, you have a Google+ account, so what's the big deal? You don't have to use it... Edit:// Am I really the only one who welcome these changes?

    - No size limit for comments (----> HEY LOOK ASCII PAINIS or PROBLEM WITH THE COMMENTS?REPEATED 9001 TIMES) - Links are allowed (HEY LOOK MY SHITTY CHANNEL or HEY LOOK MALWARE SITE FOR FREE MINEKRAFT) - A glitch lets you farm upvotes - You are not notified when someone replies - You are now part of google's evil cult - You lost 1 hour of your life trying to display your avatar again and setting everything on private - Hashtags, youtube is twitter now - More stuff Can someone tell me how to put videos in comments?

I do not like social networking, never have really so from the moment they combined + with all accounts I disabled it. I do not feel like I should be forced to join another website just to fully use another. It's like if Google for some reason bought FPSB and forced you to use + to post on the forums. Like I said before I have no problem with google wanting to try and make things better for their + users, but I cannot agree with trying to force everyone that uses youtube to join it. I can see why you don't mind the changes though, if you use +/do not mind social networking sites it wouldn't really be a problem.

    > **Posted by Amen** > Trying to force me to join into something I don't want to to have youtube fully functional is a load of ass. Theres another problem I have with this, yes youtube is owned by google, and they also have google+, and they like to connect their services. I wouldn't mind AT ALL if there was a way to link your google+ account to youtube, even if you got perks for doing it. But LIMITING BASIC FEATURES of a website unless you decide to sign up for other services not part of the original site is downright dumb. Yes, I have a google+ now, will I ever use it? NO, because the only thing I will ever need it for it commenting on videos... What a waste. This is not a good way to get people interested in google's services.

    I'm mixed when it comes to the recent changes with the current update. I already had my account linked to my Google+, so it didn't effect me quite as much. However, now that the comments section pretty much has no limitations (links are allowed, hash tag crap is now picking up as an actual link, comments aren't limited to a set amount of characters, etc.), I'm already noticing things that irritate the crap out of me (and a lot of other people as well, apparently). I've also noticed that some videos seem to be buggy when it comes to loading, but that could also just be my internet connection going haywire (some people are complaining about the videos being buggy as well while others say they aren't having issues at all - this could be a client-side connection issue, or a small bug on YouTube's side). > **Posted by Kosai106** > Edit:// Am I really the only one who welcome these changes? The only things I really like about the update are the comment section being a bit more organized, and the fact that users no longer have to leave the page they are currently on in order to respond to replies to their comments. It still seems a bit buggy though, as it seems to notify you of EVERY post in the given conversation from the video that was replied on, even if it's not directed at you. That could do with a bit of work. I'm overall happy with these two things, and a bit of tweaking would probably make them a bit more functional.
