Recent Reports of Missing Comments
1
Hi There! We’ve been following the reports that some of you have shared here about written comments being posted, and then not being able to find them later. We understand that comments are an important part of building community on YouTube, however there are some reasons why comments may be removed or not appear and we want to clarify why and how this could happen.

  • For Viewers: If you are a viewer and you notice that you can’t find your comment  shortly after writing it, this means that it could have been removed by our policy team for violating our Community Guidelines. 
Another thing to check is to see if your comment appears when using the “Newest First” sorting option instead of “Top Comments.” If comments are not showing up when sorting for “Newer First,” it could be held for review based on keywords set up by the creator. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the comment will be removed, but it means it’s being checked out before going live. Comments can also be removed by creators.

  • For Creators: If you are a creator and you’re noticing that comments are disappearing on your videos, this is most likely due to it being taken down for a policy violation. Mistakes do happen and some of these could be false positives, but we have teams reviewing content 24/7 to ensure that we are doing the best we can to keep the comment sections safe. Some comments may also not appear in the “Top Comments” comment view if they are low quality/deemed spam.

While these scenarios are the most likely causes of some comments not appearing, we do understand that you’ve shared some examples where the reasons that we’ve shared don’t seem to apply. In order for us to investigate this further, we need your help in collecting some reports! If you are having issues with your comments disappearing, and you’ve checked that your comment does not fall into one of the situations listed above, please reply to this post sharing the following information:

  • Your Channel URL – the channel you’re using to leave a comment
  • Video URL of the video you're commenting on
  • The exact text of the comment you attempted to leave (if you’re able to capture it before disappearing)
  • Is this happening if you leave comments across multiple channels? Y/N
  • Is the comment still there when viewing the same video from another channel/incognito? Y/N

Two things to note — first, we need you to reply in this exact format. We will not be able to record your case otherwise. Second — if this issue is happening across multiple channels, just provide one example. Do not submit a reply for every single occurrence.

We’ll keep you updated when we have more to share.

It would be great if you communists could stop censoring every comment I make and then pretending like you don't know what's happening.

Whenever I post any comment with my youtube "brand" account by the name of Clizard my comments get auto deleted after a minute, not matter what the contents comment or the channel/video I'm commenting on. As far as I know, I haven't broken any community guidelines or posted any offensive comments, and this has happened for about a month.

I've used my school youtube account to make a test post on an other video since then, and it was able to stay, so it seems to be a problem with my main account. If nothing else, I just wish the the filter-bot would give a reason why it deletes comments.
