Okay, so your video player has randomly decided to start pillarboxing itself on me today. Yesterday, everything was fine. Now, it does this. This was a screenshot from the TMNT test chamber today. Normally it will immediately start playing when I select the play button. But now there's a delay of several seconds wherein the left and right sides of the video player will go black.
And here's what it looks like full screen:
Also, the videos on some pages are being replaced with ads. I was attempting to watch an old replay (Brave Fencer Musashi) and instead of the correct video, there is an ad for DoA5. So, that's weird. The audio from the original video still plays, but the video has been replaced. If I go full screen I can see most of the original video, but there is the ad in the upper left corner that does not go away, blocking a fourth of the screen. Very annoying, and makes them unwatchable. Thanks.
I wrote a review of Killer Is Dead, and it has five comments on it, but I can't see any of the comments. It's been not displaying comments for a few days. Has anyone else had this issue?
I see that alot. Many times when I see those they're usually spam. But this is something to take note of if regular users are in fact trying to comment on reviews.

Excuse me; I've been having a minor issue regarding the site's user review feature. Whenever I visit a review page and check the user review sidebar, I don't see the "write user review' link. I decided that maybe I was just looking in the wrong area, and went to the site help page to check. It turned out I was not, in fact, looking in the wrong area, so I figured maybe low ranking users simply weren't allowed to post reviews. This didn't hold up, either, as I discovered after a brief examination of the site's point system. I then dismissed it as a temporary issue, figuring it might be a temporary glitch in the system, but it's been at least a month now, and I'm still not seeing that link. I've tried using different browsers: I primarily use Google Chrome, but attempted using Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox to fix the issue, but to no avail. I've even tried using my other computer, but even that didn't work, so it's become clear that this is either an issue with account clearance, or my own perception. Am I missing something? Was there a certain requirement that had to be met before a user could post his or her own review that I somehow overlooked? Or is it just a site bug? I'd be grateful for any advice on the issue.
Never mind, I figured out what the issue was.
Hey Joey, et al, just a heads up in case you were unaware but it appears that comments aren't showing up in blogs. At least in mine and a few other recent posts (including those posted prior to the update) I can't see any comments, and that's checking via phone and PC (Chrome). When I check in Advanced Editor I can see the comments to my latest blog, but not on the actual blog page. Just FYI. Hoping the update went well in general. ; )

FYI, experiencing same issue as Kyle. I can see comments on official news and blogs, but none show up on any user blogs.
Not all of my reviews and blogs are showing
I tried to post two blogs that didn't contain any offensive or inappropiate content and they never showed up. Have I been TOS'd or what?
Yep, having the same trouble with blogs. I posted one, didn't show up. Posted a second, still no show. Plz fix soon. :-/
All of my blogs are dissapearing, and it just won't end. It's gotten so bad that most of my front page blogs have just vanished. I went into advanced editor to repost, but still nothing,
I like turtles. And monkeys. And cats.
I've been encountering a lot of issues with comments not publishing in articles and on blogs. It's really making it difficult to have any sort of discussion on the site.
Yeah, I have the same issue as Chris. When I load up a new story, like one of my blogs, the first Reply I make always disappears without posting. I lost a couple really big, like 500+ word replies on my latest blog because of that. After the first one disappears subsequent replies work fine. It's a bit annoying though. Also, every time you go to edit your own reply it tells you that you don't have admin privileges the first time and then let's you edit the next. Seems like there are a couple backend variables that don't have proper values to start off with. At least, as a former Comp Sci major, that's where I'd look first.
