I have notifications for comments on my video and I really want to reply and interact with them but those comments do not appear!

Also the comments counter counts them but they do not show, neither on video page nor in YouTube studio, nor if I choose to see "help for review" comments.

Is this a known issue? Why don't the comments show up?

Notifications (including 2 comments not appearing in video page):


Comments on video (2 out of 4 appear):

Btw, this is the video in question: https://youtu.be/2yGHk9XXOBE

Note how as of asking this question it is not yet 60 days old so comments in review couldn't have been removed.

Some comments get flagged as spam, or the people who write them delete it. To see if it's marked as spam go to YouTube Studio, go to the comments section and look there.

  • Is that the "Held for review" section? No comments are there

  • @yairchu, how long ago did they comment on the video? The comments the are Held For Review get deleted in 60 days. Sep 26, 2021 at 14:01
  • less than 60 days. The video itself hasn't been up yet for 60 days

  • @yairchu, Then the only other thing I can think of is YouTube either deleted them or the people deleted their own comments. Sep 27, 2021 at 13:51
  • It seems unlikely that several folks would delete their own comments, so I suspect that the explanation might be a YouTube bug.
