The previous YouTube comment system was utter 						****					 and it was a right pain in the arse to view a whole thread together. Google have taken the comments system from Google+ (which works) and put it on YouTube, saving them time and money making a whole new one. Just because you have to have a Google+ doesn't mean you have to use it - you just make it and leave it alone. You don't even need to use your real name if you want - just break your username into two words, for example I could just make a Google+ account called Creative Usernamea and just use it for YouTube, using a completely separate one for my other Google services if I wanted to. Everyone's getting their Jimmies in a twist over nothing.

>Doesn't force you to actually use Google+ but saves them money developing a whole new comment system
>It wasn't broken per se, but was **** compared to other websites
>What "good features" have they removed?

How about the fact that you can't click a video time in a comment without it opening a new tab? How about it showing the top comments on top and everything else below? How about replies actually working?

some people can't even bloody comment though. and the comment section looks awful and jumbled up with the new reply system.

The people who can't comment are those who haven't logged in through Google+.
I prefer the new look as it makes YouTube look more like a social network where everyone has a profile picture, which is what YouTube effectively is.

no some people made Google plus accounts and still cant comment. i cant even comment sometimes, there isn't a reply button. and i can see what they were going with the new reply system but they screwed it up, especially the unlimited amount of characters you can have in one comment.

What's wrong with an unlimited number of characters? There's an option to expand / collapse to hide the really long ones if you want (though admittedly this should appear at the top of the comment, not the bottom)

oh god unlimited characters is the most annoying thing ever. almost every video has complete acts of Shakespeare or the repetive control + V "you want to see something wrong with the new YouTube comment section?" its every 12 year old trolls dream come true.

That's just trolls being really unoriginal. They'll get bored in a few days.

some will, but not all of them. that's a sure guarantee.

How are you even supposed to reply? There are some comments that have a lot of replies that I can reply to, but others there is no button for it.

idk, at first it was getting a google plus account but even that doesn't work sometimes. it's probably just a bug, but it'll take YouTube ages to fix.
