    Hello...

    I was testing comments thumbs up today. For example on some video I made 23 thumbs up on my comment and it was on the top of a list. I sent link to video to a few other guys from different countries and none of them seen my comment on the place I see. What the hell is going on? Anybody can say me?

    If you thumps up your comment from your own IP a couple of times, youtube will 'blacklist' the IP. That means you can thumbs up the comment, but the 'thumbs ups' on the comment will only be visible to yourself (on your own IP) and the comment will not actually become top comment.

    The same goes for bad proxies. If you use (bad) (blacklisted) proxies, youtube will do exactly the same. Your comment might get thumbs ups then, but will not become an actual top comment.

    There are lots of limits of YouTube...

    How can I avoid it? Is buying proxies the only way? Or for example TOR would help? or any other ways

    You need high quality private proxies in order to avoid that. And that's not everything, you need a good bot to thumbs ups the comments. Most bots leave footprints, which will still give you the same (bad) results...

    It's not easy. I dont have experience with comment rating btw, never did it. But this is just what I've heard from other people on the forum.
