    This morning I was trying to post some comments on youtube and noticed that when I refreshed the page the comment wasn't there... I tried using different youtube accounts and even signed in through a proxy to test and comments still not showing up. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone know how I may fix this?

    I'm guessing you're using public proxies. You need to use Private Proxies and the less accounts per IP, the better. Also, after sending the same comment several times, it will be black listed and certain accounts can be marked to be ghosted. It depends on several things, but you didn't give details about the comment etc.

    My proxies are private. I only used the one account on this proxy, so there shouldn't be any issues. I am also not using same comment, I have been writing the comments by hand and making each one unique. I even tried going onto a movie trailer and commenting something normal and it didn't show up.

    Can you comment from your own account? Personal account if you have one.

    Just tried my personal account and the comment won't show up as well... Is everyone having this problem or did I get flagged or something for spam?

    It is probably ghosting you. Are you clearing cookies when signing in and out of your accounts?

    Yes, I am using Ccleaner to clean everything on my browser, but maybe it's not working right?

    Not sure if YouTube has implemented this yet but maybe they are picking up on the fact you are using the same fonts or
    browser ID?

    OP, I bet that was you who keeps spamming my videos j/k but someone keeps posting spam on all of them and the comments are ghosted immediately by Youtube. They most likely implemented a new spam detection system.

    I was thinking the same thing. I noticed the sign in for youtube was different today as well. Maybe they implemented something that is ghosting me. I'm pretty sure I'm being ghosted, but I don't know why.

    Well let's break it down Tmill.

    Ways websites can link you......

    IP Address
    Cookies (Flash cookies ect.)
    Browser Print
    MAC address
    Network name

    What you have done so far

    IP Address
    Cookies
    Network name (private proxies masking it)

    So what is left? :)

    Obviously they are ghosting you on one of the things you have not touched yet.
    Try a vps as a test and see what happens. I bet that works.

    Thanks for the advice. I will try a vps out. One thing I noticed thanks to Checkmate is that my comments are showing up on my cell phone but not on my computer. Why is that?

    Now it definitely sounds like an issue with your browser. Try a different browser and refresh your cache and see what happens.

    OP, create a brand new Account from a Brand New IP. That will solve your issue. I'm guessing either the IP or the account is ghosted for all comments. It doesn't make sense why your phone would display the comment, but not your PC.
