    Honestly can't wait to see the final result.

    So far what I've observed:


    • Top comments are back (and separated), based on rating again.
    • No longer linked to G+, even if you have one.
    • Captchas for commenting "gimme_captcha" :eek: same as flagging captcha.
    • No longer able to edit/delete comments.

    To sum it up: 2012 style with captchas, hopefully they will be improving replies/conversation, since all the videos I've tested this on look bad (from a normal consumers pov).

    Thoughts?

    They had no idea what they were doing with Google+, they have no idea what they're doing now.

    Google is still the ads / search company.

    Sounds bad. I dont want the top commenta back lol, my comments are already on top. Also hopefully they keep that spam messages filter that they have now, it gets rid of all the self promoters "check put my channel" who comment on my every video, captchas will only help them.

    Where did you even find this stuff, from the beta versio?

    What is the source of these changes? Your own testing?

    Yeah, I'm hoping that they improve their spam filters. I like the way things are at the moment, but I'm excited about the possibility of rating being a major factor again.

    When YouTube does updates like this, they usually roll them out to a small percentage of videos first. This allows them to test things out, and does not always mean the update will be final. My source is a handful of videos that I've found via crawling.
