YouTube Finally Fixes Comment System

Spiral Frog: Free, Legal Music Downloads

YouTube’s comment system has been one of the most frustrating features of ANY service online for a very long time. A scroll through a video’s comments would yield racist remarks, spam, more spam, and the occasional British-American supremacy debate. Now it seems, YouTube may have taken the first step towards fixing the problem.

Some of the changes made to the YouTube Interface:

Comment Ratings This is a new Digg-style comment ratings system. This was the most needed change, and the developers did a great job implementing it. Each video can be given a positive vote or a negative vote, and comments are either displayed or not displayed based on their overall rating. Great stuff.

Recent Ratings on Videos The channel pages now show the last five videos a user has rated. This feature is optional.

Other changesThere is now a section on each video’s page showing other users who have added the video to their playlist, intra-channel search has been added, and the video toolbox has been redesigned. You can see a more detailed explanation of the changes on the YouTube blog.
