    Logged in this morning and noticed that the notifications in the top right of the screen on the YouTube page has changed slightly. Now instead of being able to get a quick recap of all comments on a single video, it shows every comment individually. Also, when I click on the comment, instead of simply expanding and allowing me to interact there on the notifications section, it automatically takes me to the actual video page and shows me the comment on the page.

    Is this being rolled out across everyone or is it something I've inadvertently changed without realising? I like how they were yesterday because I could recap all of them without hassle, now I've got hundreds of notifications and no real way to keep on top of them all.

    Thank you for your time

    It's a bit weird.
    On some of my computers and devices it's this new thingy, while on some other computers it's the old thingy :O

    Yeah... It's been like that for me too.. :( I liked the old version...
    :eek:
    That's interesting! I wonder if I could get to the older version by using a different browser? o.o I'll have to try that this evening. ^^

    Youtube is legit messing up everything for everyone, watchers and creators alike, as for replying to comments, what i find helps is going into your video manager, then clicking the community drop down tab on the left, and from there answering comments, it shows who commented what, and on what video! You can literally manage all your comments from there, as well as see spam messages and or messages!

    I prefer commenting using Tubebuddy's dashboard. The only thing I don't like about it is that I can't "heart" a comment from there.

    I really don't like the change either. I don't like how when it says someone has replied to me, I can't quickly reply from that alert like you could before. Now, the only way to do it is to click on the comment and go to the actual video (but I don't want to watch my videos for 20 seconds each time I reply to a reply and mess up my audience retention and or risk viewing my own ads)

    I also get the impression that comments are disappearing.
