Title: youtube doesnt let me reply to posts anymore :(
Post by: Od1n on 11:29 AM - 07/18/12
anyone knows for why i no longer am able to answer posts in my youtube videos?

usually you click the reply button and a pre-set text appears in the chatbox
but for me nothing like this appears
its been like that since 4-5 days now, updated firefox and stuff yet no success...

(already googled a bit, clicking on "show all posts" and then click reply doesnt help either)

clear YT cookies, try with a different browser for troubleshooting.

Maybe some of your replies are bad and someone report it that's why you're not allowed to reply anymore.

Just my guess, not sure if it is.

then i would have received any warning or such

my youtube profile says valid, no warnings or such
no advertise or song infringement and sorts of that

also i havent sweared in any of my posts, they were all very formal

wrong youtube profile toys :P
my "od1n" profile does work, the "ximgameplay" doesnt


well i luckily figured out for why i cannot post with my secondary profile anymore
since like last week, youtube offers -  no kinda forces you to merge your youtube name with your google+ name
you get a message that gives you the option, either change your youtube name to your google+ name or keep your current youtube name

as soon as you click "keep youtube name" you are unable to reply to posts
the problem is already recognized by youtube, and they are working on a fix

there are two short fixes for those that dont want to wait:
- delete your entire cookies,  this requires a programm as eg firefox wont let you delete 100% of all cookies
- delete your google+ account that is connected to your youtube profile

here is the youtube statement

and my personal refusal to link anything to anything else policy proves itself yet again!

cannot agree more

sadly when you register a new youtube account, it automatically opens up a merged google+ account too
(next to some other google/youtube related network sites)

dunno where this will lead to someday, but im not going to like it...
